Either everyone is off today or your jobs have a lot of idle time. I found at least my reference to wawa:

Our Logo: "Wawa" is a Native American word for the Canada Goose that was found in the Delaware Valley over 100 years ago. Our original Dairy farm was built on land located in a rural section of Pennsylvania called Wawa. That's why we use the goose on Wawa's corporate logo.

P.S. Glad someone else recognizes Central as one of the geographical Americas lol. It irks me so much when people consider countries like Honduras, El Salvador as South America.

That is way too advanced for this group. For the last 6 hours they have been discussing the origins of a goose, a penguin, and something that resembles a penguin.

I enjoyed the video.

Hey, we're renaissance men/people ( or at least sci fi fans) so at least some of us totally get this.

Also by using the logic that electrons can travel faster than the speed of light if light isn't traveling at the max speed, my FRS can travel faster than a Veyron, if the Veyron is parked.

Take that soccer mom at the stop light.
