This is Bistek al la Mexicana a common dish found many places. There are several places I get this some better than others but all real decent! Kind of a tomato based sauce with generally pretty tender pieces of beef and a fair amount of it. The rice is pretty generic but the frijoles can be something else. This also includes as many fresh made in front of you tortillas you want and brought to you with a smile. Something like this costs around 50-60 pesos or $3. The squeezed as you watch orange juice is 20 and brings the price up a bit but worth it. Nothing in the States I've ever had compares to this not even close plus it'll cost 7-10 smacks. I don't know what I'm going to eat when I return. It will be an adjustment as I do this so much that is go into Puerto Vallarta on the south side and have me a excellent lunch with "real" Mexican food not the slop I get back there. I do not plan on eating out much at all only at maybe three select places. Pricey yes but worth it because it's so good. I threw away so much money last summer eating way overpriced shitty food. Several times the food got thrown away as well. The whole of Mexico is an eating machine I tell you. I'm gonna miss this.

I feel good and and think the higher temps and humidity contributes to that. It's the same every time. After a month or two you realize and say " Hey I feel pretty damn good!"

Just as important I believe the food made fresh with wholesome fresh ingredients as well contributes to that. Get off the bus in town the food smells everywhere make me hungry just like that.

Video Captures Alien Visitor

An extraterrestrial peering into a window was purportedly captured on videotape, and a few clips from that footage were shown Friday in Denver.

Sounds good to me but don't you lose your credibility when it's not released or at least part of it? There is a poll involved with this article with over 70% saying they believe in extraterrestrials. I guess when something like 85% in the US believe in an invisible cloud being that snapped his fingers to make all that is around us then visitors from space is not much of a stretch. The reality is
extraterrestrials are far more probable than a finger snapper.

  1. PZ Myers likes to feature Internet polls at Pharyngula, inviting people to distort them because they're so ridiculous. There's one like that on that Denver aliens story - "Do you believe in alien life?".

    OK, what kind of alien life? Anything that can reproduce itself? Something that is self-replicating and feeds itself? Or something carbon-based that we can sip a latte with and shoot the breeze? My answers to those three questions are different, as they could be for any thinking person.

    Still, I agree they're all more likely than the existence of some sort of entity that can create and affect the universe, and yet not exist within it in any meaningful or detectable way.
