I know Tyler wrote it properly, but to clarify fries are from Belgium, not France.

Therefore people in Belguim eat snails?? Uhhhhmm, tasty and crunchy!!

I'm not Belgian, but wanted to mention they get kind of angry when people call them French Fries. Origin (Belgium) according to wikipedia.


Anyway thanks for the clarification!

we don't get angry about it. We just warn people that eating the French version will most probably give you diariah.

whatever people thing, the french really can't cook AT ALL!

Best food in the world => Belgium.

Best beer in the world => Beglium.

We call Fries, French Fries because in the past there was only 1 thing you could do with a Frenchman. Fry him in cooking oil.

and like those French man, the patato also turns crispy when you boil them.

I heard they were called French Fries because the French introduced them to the UK. We had the good sense to rename them chips.

Just make sure you don't get caught in an exportation scandel that led to a few million dead Irishmen during the potato blight of 1850(?)

The Merkozy accord is failing, the Greek rescue could fall apart, the SNB is short of dollars, banks are short liquidity, German manufacturing is declining, NFP looks like it could print -700k, stocks have plummeted, gold is at an all time high. What could possibly go wrong?

Oh, I suppose the UK posting a surplus isn't going to help the Eurozone either. The political pressure in defecit € countries will be enormous.

Trading when there's this much fear / panic is tricky.  While it doesn't take much for the floor to give out, it also doesn't take much for markets to end 100+ points higher.

Funny, Tyler!  Strange, too . . . I don't remember ever having an urge for snails in the morning before. 

OT, but one of our favorite subjects, good ole GS:

    Why do you pick what you pick from the menu?

    If you want a nice distressed meal, you should cancel the order for Spaetzle, Wiener Schnitzel anf maybe even Fries. Instead add some Sashimi and a BigMac to your order!
