On But Does the Dog Die?

@Smallison I received Titanic on VHS for christmas one year and it was split into two videos because it was so long. I would watch the love story first half and never get around to watching the sinking and sadness second half.

@Katzen-party I thought the Guinness Brewery was a bit silly, but also a little bit fun? It's not a real working brewery, so it's not like you're actually seeing them make anything. It's a self guided tour, a little Disney-esque, but at the end you get a free beer and a 360º view of Dublin. (Assuming it's not cloudy and raining out, which... it's Dublin, so chances are good it's gonna be at least a little cloudy.)

I say skip it if you feel like you have other things you would rather do, but if you have the extra time it's sort of fun!

On Cold Crayfish, Reindeer Burritos

@christonacracker Yes! When I studied abroad in Copenhagen, the pølsevogn (sausage wagon, hah) were parked outside on the streets all summer long. I'm a vegetarian, but all of my friends agreed it was pretty much the best. Especially after a round of drinking.

On Olive Oil for Breakfast and Ever

@leon s I think I remember you live in Brooklyn? If I am wrong feel free to ignore this, but http://olivebrooklyn.com/ in Williamsburg is pretty great. It's definitely 'fancy,' but the prices weren't quite as bad as I was expecting for WBurg and the staff is pretty helpful. You can try any of their oils before you buy.

@par_parenthese I tried really hard to reply with a picture of the Dowager Countess sipping tea, but my html skills failed. You will all just have to imagine it.
