An Elephant Shower will soon be yeahdu.de
That’s right, yeahdu.de was not owned by a single dude until yesterday evening. Now it’s owned by this dude, a full-time dude and dude-domain caretaker. Me.
You will always be able to use the old address if you want to avoid the massive burden that is changing your bookmark. And nothing will change as far as content, but there is a new design set in stone and to be coded as soon as I find the time [to learn how]. Here’s a preview:
Coming up on mid-August, I’m officially treading in the deep end of this year’s summer. I have, by now, developed an efficient schedule for the settings on my window fan and also the appropriate times to wear socks. With California’s absurdly constant weather, most of this came with ease.
But there’s another summer staple that’s poking me in the back of the knee, and I’m talking about this summer’s complaint: gas prices. Man I love complaining about gas prices. I mean, there’s nothing I can do about it. Exxon/Mobil pulled in $40 billion in profit last year. Oh, and I also joined some groups online and we’re totally not going to buy gas at the end of the month. I can’t wait to see the look on their faces when we send them out of business.
That idea would be more effective if each participant shot themself in the face. At least that way we could be sure that none of them flaked out and bought gas. Though I suppose the gas companies could see a slight profit increase, what, with all of that annoying funeral traffic.
Visit 1 - double double no onions, fries animal, coke
Visit 2 - fries animal well, Neapolitan shake, free coke refill(!!)
As anyone that has experienced the west coast’s In-N-Out can tell you, it’s one of the few example of fast food being done correctly. I mean there aren’t any tricks with combos or pricing, the service is good because the employees are paid fair, the food is good because it’s fresh and made to order (the fries, too), and because of the simplicity of the entire operation.
Drive-Thru line starting to back up into the street? No problem. They have people already taking orders to the waiting costumers with a wireless connection going back to the kitchen.
And while their simple menu is something to satisfy any purist, there exists items and modification that won’t ever be seen on the sign. For example animal style fries would top the fresh side order with cheese, grilled onions and In-N-Out’s spread. An animal style burger would get you a mustard cooked beef patty served on a bun with pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, extra spread and grilled onions.
I haven’t had a chance yet to order an animal double double, that’s probably next time, but I did grab an order of animal fries today. Twice. Delicious both times, even better the second time when I asked for the fries to be well-done, which I recommend.
Another thing that has me curious is the option to substitute the bun for lettuce. This is called protein style. If protein isn’t your style, you still have the option to get the bun cooked light or extra. Actually, you can do this with any topping available.
The Neapolitan shake was a layered combination of all three flavors; vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. It was awesome. I just kept my straw on the bottom and enjoyed it one layer at a time. Okay, maybe one time I got excited and swirled it together. I just wanted to make sure it was possible. (It was)
And can we talk about onions for a moment? In-N-Out has them, and they know how to use them. I mentioned that the animal styled items will come with grilled onions, but that’s so small in this fast food giant’s world of tear-jerking vegetables…
Regular Onions is what a customer receives by default, if they want onions. This refers to one full slice of onions that is not cooked, but rather placed on top of the center patty or cheese slice while the meat is still on the grill, giving the onion time to warm and soften its flavor. Raw Onions are not warmed at all, and instead placed between the spread on the bottom bun and the tomato, keeping them cold. These can also be ordered as Chopped Raw Onions. Grilled Onions indicates chopped, grilled onions placed in the same location as ‘regular onions’. Whole Grilled Onions consists of a whole slice of onion placed on the grill and cooked until it is soft. **
That was my experience with In-N-Out. I’m still working at mastering the ability to look like a local. Right now it seems that I tend to make each of my secret modifications into a question; “..and a shake, like, Neapolitan?”
**Here’s how I made myself look smart (Wiki). There’s a lot more shit they’re hiding from you.
Double-Double, Animal Style Fries
100x100 Burger (100 patties, 100 slices of cheese). Story.
Clicking around in the album, I came across Colour Lovers. Really cool community site that allows members to create and share color palletes, like a this one:
Or let’s take a look at this months top ranking color…
His name is Duke Riley, and he has tattoos and a homemade replica of a wooden submerging vessel said to have been used (or not used) by the US in the Revolutionary War.
But there’s a problem. He’s an artist, not a scientist, so when he was reported to have been floating toward New York’s Queen Mary II, authorities could only imagine what sort of enormous bomb he must have hidden within the plywood/fiberglass structure. Riley was 200’ from the bow of the ship when he was detained.
Cold Hard Flash has gotten ahold of 3 (well, actually 5) shorts created by Southpark’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone, along with a couple of the animators from the show. They’re drawn over the recordings of philosopher Alan Watts, who has heavy influence on the duo’s creations.
I came across this on the new search engine they’re calling “Google.” Using it, I found something hiladible. That’s a portmanteau for descibing something that is both hilarious and incredible.

“skory15,” a valet and poster at LS1GTO.com who bragged about how he took someone’s Gallardo out for a joyride without permission. You see, he had to, because it had been parked in front of his valet stand all day, “taunting him.”

The pint-sized pop on the TLC reality show “Little People, Big World” has been hiding a pretty big secret — he was busted for DUI last month.
According to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, 45-year-old Matthew Roloff was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of intoxicants, around midnight on June 19 after cops claim that Roloff’s van had been swerving on the road.
Roloff, who then failed a field sobriety test, was taken to Washington County Jail, where he was cited and released
