    If it's where I think it is, there's sometimes a street vendor nearby selling food or beverages from a cart.

    Are you sure it's a cart, or is it one of those driving thingies? I think I remember going there once a while back. It was decent I think, though I seem to distinctly remember there being something wrong with my food.

    Right now I'm experiencing difficulties. What do you do in those types of situations?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    Conceptually, this may be the case but there can be difficulties...

    This weekend we went camping at this place. My son caught some of those wiggling things in a pond. Not fish, but those other things. He met a girl and they caught stuff in the pond for most of the day. At one point she got mad at him and did that hair flip thing girls do. I told him he would see a lot of that in the coming years.

    We ate some stuff that was in the ice chest.

    Got bit by those bugs that bite. My skin is itchy. I need some of that cream for the itchiness, whatever it is called.

    As opposed to looking like something else ?

    I wouldn't be too sure about that. You don't know what could happen.

    I think that weak confidence in such a thing can result in some after effect. It reminds me a of an event which occured under somewhat similar circumstances--except for the things which were not similar. That is what seperates the two. But otherwise, they were mirror images of each occasion.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    Ambiguity annoys me, like In that piece of paper, where it talks about what the geographical areas of part of the planet can do or not do and what the parent part of that geologic earth section says it can do.

    Only, the conflicts are maddening.

    So the little part can make its own methods of operating, unless and only if someone from that geographical unit transacts with another transactor in the general vicinity of said unit. But if he crosses the divider space and makes the exchange then the small planetary subsection is bound by the whimsical attributes of the sum of the smaller parts.

    In so doing, the small geographical movers of something may actually be nearer and more superfluously held to account than further flung parts of less well regulated hinterland still in the sphere of orbit of the original local of creation for transaction.

    With economies of great stretchy hugeness encompassing various numbers of local groupings and geographic reach, how can ANYTHING be judged to be under semi autonomous small geographic control unencumbered by the sum of other smaller parental divisions?

    Or was that too specific?
