....

I dont eat at Golden Corral.  Horrible screaming gremlins are indeed the reason, but not because they are screamers.  No.

IT IS BECAUSE THOSE HORRIBLE BAGS OF FLESH THAT SPAWNED THEM WONT KEEP THEIR SPAWN'S HANDS OFF THE FOOD.

Goodness.. that came out harsher than I expected.  Basically, the little ill conceived nuisances to civilized society run around, pick their noses, scratch their asses, cough, touch god only knows what--- and then--- scamper, run around all over the place like they ate a whole bag of cocaine, and generally touch, lick, and in general contaminate all of the food items on the buffet.

Their parents, too mortally drained from constant exposure to this hell they have conjured forth with their loins, are powerless to prevent this tragedy.

That for some reason the Golden Corral seems to be so frequently afflicted, I simply refuse to go.  Horrible unsupervised children + Buffet == "No thanks."

I ate at Golden Corral once! It was rather nice, although there was indeed one trailer trash couple accompanied by their spawn, having a vicious argument in the entrance as we left. Buuuuut then that really just added to the experience for me, being a massive tourist and all.

Also our (extremely nice) waitress was from Texas and said y'all at least once, so I was able to cross that off my list of things to do in the States. :D
Though I don't know how enjoyable it would be to eat there nowadays... back then I was only vegetarian, and there were plenty of potato salads and meat-free pasta dishes to choose from. Now it would probably be a nightmare, haha.


...Does Golden Corral count as a "classic US fast food chain"? Because I was actually pretty bummed that I didn't find a chance to eat at any such places (like Denny's or Taco Bell or some shit) while I was over there, but maybe GC counts as a Southwestern version.

If it does, I don't want it to.

I'm reasonably certain it doesn't count.

Golden Corral isn't a fast food chain, it's a buffet chain. Denny's isn't a fast food chain either. If there's no drive-through it isn't fast food, generally.

My own Golden Corral experience is that my family got all sorts of free meals there because of a business association, until the salmonella crisis hit. Then things...wrapped up pretty quickly.

If there's no drive-through it isn't fast food, generally.
I'll have to disagree with you there, there are plenty of chains around that lack drive-thrus in some locations, or forego them entirely. The Denny's I've seen in comic books, film and other media is definitely a fast food joint.
You're right about GC not really counting as fast food, though. Dang.
Next time I visit I might just make a tour of the country's fast food places, maybe just photographing them if they lack vegan options. It'll be a sort of pilgrimage, with those new Amy's restaurants as Mecca, of course. :))

Denny's is a diner, not a fast food joint. Fast food joints require you to unwrap your food, and don't provide plates or silverware.


My stepdad is running a propane heater in the basement to keep the pipes from freezing. He also cannot find his carbon monoxide detector.

Don't worry. Virtually all portable propane heaters put out very low levels of CO, as they are intended for indoor use. It is possible for them to be dangerous, but the danger is minor unless they are really high output.

Or you have little ventilation. A normal house should be fine.

Isn't a diner a subset of fast food place, though?
I guess mainly I just counted it alongside the others due to how recognisable it is.

There are reasonably cheap wires he could buy to do that without the chance of poisoning your family. Home Depot or whatever should have them.
