    I look forward to winter so I can wear my fleece vest for more pockets.
    I think the ZT 0566 / PM2 is as good as a high end knife that you need.
    I don't get pry bars.
    I wish I had never found this website. ;)

    In my experience they are much the same. True for the major chains in Asia and Australasia too. Of course, much of Asian fast food comes from a guy with a cart, and very good it is too.

    We wouldn't to mistake a Miss Giraffe Hooves for something akin to MvLawnApe.:giggle:


    Oh! on this note - What is with all the Oz guys not doing StarBucks?

    I read something about Starbucks completely failing to integrate into Australia.

    That.....is.... awesome. Down under they realize they shouldn't pay $8.97 for a cup of coffee. I don't give a flip how fancy it is.....

    I confess I go to Starbucks from time to time.... Whenever I have a gift card. We seem to get them as appreciateion gifts for volunteering in Girl Scouts, at church, and so forth. :rolleyes_revamped:

    This is how to get your "Cracked out on Caffeine" Merit Badge.


    I've only been in there a few times. Kinda weird. I don't like coffee but my wife does. She knows how to work the system, and makes 3 drinks out of one by ordering it with no ice, and then a cup of ice on the side... I don't know what mocha-frappa-double-latte mess she orders.

    I do, however, confess to loving the smell of coffee. The taste doesn't match the smell. what a horrid trick.:cold:

    Then you're drinking the wrong coffee, add Baily's Irish Cream to it and makes any coffee good.

    Earlier this year I spent a month in Oz, mostly Adelaide, and cannot remember seeing a Starbucks let alone going into one. I think the reason they haven't been successful is that there are lots of independent bakeries where you can get a good cup of coffee and something to eat, probably influenced by the number of Italian immigrants.

    In contrast Singapore, where there are hundreds of Starbucks, you couldn't get a decent coffee until they, and a couple of local competitors, opened up.

    That's exactly the reason, they can't compete with all the good coffee shops and cafes in Adelaide and Melbourne.

    There are some countries where seeing a Starbucks is like spotting an oasis in a desert. I had a project where I was spending a lot of time in Malaysia, not a place known for the quality of its coffee, fortunately there was a Starbucks in the mall next to the office. I was in there often enough for the staff to know my order, not bad 5000 miles from home.
