They are both way cheaper than five guys, but the latter's food quality (in terms of taste, texture, and presentation at least) is substantially higher IMO. I think people of a certain region will tend to say the chain that started in said region is better, so maybe that's where it comes from.

There are 211 pages of threads in the Wheels | Tires | Spacers | Hub section of this forum.

Being a n00b to this platform, I've gone through all of them and can report that every question I might have ever had, and some I'd have never of thought of, have been answered sans one.

Why do people brag about having the fourth stickiest tyre?

I have to agree, two different types of burger joints altogether. To me, the closest true "fast food" to Five Guys would be Hardee's with their thickburgers, but Five Guys is still a higher quality.

(Full disclosure, I may be proving @Spuds theory right given Hardee's started in NC and I've eaten multiple times at Restaurant #1 in Rocky Mount before it was torn down, still my assessment stands! I've also eaten at KFC#1 and Chick-fil-a #1 on multiple occasions.)

I think it's safe to say the kids in this video alone have more balls than me.

I remember them making this in like September or something well before the brz reveal. I'm pretty sure they found the most hidden docking area possible for that brz scene.

Bought appliances online at Lowe’s on Nov 9. Lowe’s claim they were going to deliver on Nov 25 (day before thanksgiving). Nov 24, they sent me an email saying it’s been pushed back to Dec 9. Today, got an email saying delivery been pushed back to Dec 23. Fuck, I’m done waiting. Call to cancel the order. Waiting time was 2hrs... fuck that! Signed up online account. Canceled all my order. Took only 5mins. Check RC Willey, they have almost everything except dishwasher. Ordered different one which was extra $400, but they’ll have it ready to pick it by Thursday. Idk why Lowe’s gotta make it so damn complicated.

TLDR: never buy from Lowe’s.

Same for Home Depot. If you can't load it up then and there, then don't buy it from them.

My Genki I second edition arrived today.

Been dealing with a lot of work stress and I decided I needed to try something new to occupy a portion of my evenings. This way it still uses some brain power, which hopefully will distract myself from work thoughts.

Plus after making so many friends in Japan on my previous two trips, it'd be cool to eventually get to at least a basic level of reading/writing without depending on Google Translate, which while usable is less than ideal.

I've run in to the same type of situation at Home Depot. It seems like the big-box home improvement stores don't have a handle on local inventory and can suffer large swings in delivery times(just a guess; IRDK)... however the local specialty appliance chains (Pacific Sales for me) can tell you exactly what is in the regional warehouse and have never strung me along... Hope you didn't need those appliances for your Thanksgiving celebration!

Thankfully I had thanksgiving at my parents house. If I didnít, Iíll be screaming at customer service on the phone. Actually thatís a lie. I wouldnít yell at the costumer service. Itís not their fault.

i would never buy appliances from any big box stores--the products they get are sometimes lesser of a quality than the independent stores get... and NEVER, EVER go to those stores for remodeling work. the markup they add to it, well 'rape' isn't a strong enough word...

i've got at least 3 different independent appliance stores in my area that work very hard to take care of people. one in particular, my family's been going to for decades, and is brutally honest about anything and everything he sells/services regardless of if anyone buys it or not..
