@Karen..."My husband refers to them as "filthy little cabbages".  Maybe he is just being amorous.  "Mon petit chou" (my little cabbage) is a term of great endearment in French.....   Now this also implies that you are dirty....I'd best not go there.... but maybe it just lost something in translation :-)

@Jolly Green Liar You see a lot of French Fries there, because they're really Belgian Fries

Have you read this story about ordering fries in Australia from the Red Hill Guide? They also have this great history of the x86 on their site.

@The One and Only Tom Murphy: Max, I miss your wit and wisdom and will need to check back more often.

I don't care what everyone else says about you, I think you are a very witty, articulate, and discerning person LOL

I love Brussels sprouts, but I never saw them in Brussels. You see a lot of French Fries there, because they're really Belgian Fries. They serve them with mayonaise and, if you insist and can ask in a good American accent, they will give you catsup. You can't buy them with American credit cards because they aren't secure enough to purchase vegetable products in Belgium.

Max, I miss your wit and wisdom and will need to check back more often.  

Or am I lying?

However, i suspect that isn't your grandmother's recipe either..... certainly not mine (although my maternal grandmother was fond of seafood).

@mhrackin: ...Inclusion of a recipe is even better...

Hence the fact that my Bebop to the Boolean Boogie (An Unconventional Guide to Electronics) remains the only electronics book in the world to boast a recipe for Seafood Gumbo (this isn't your grandmother's electronics book)

In fact, it's only two places behind The Coagulated & Curdled Custard of Despair in terms of the most comments

Yup.  Here's a free tip to all EET bloggers:  throw in a mention of some food item, no matter how tenuous the connection to the original topic.  Inclusion of a recipe is even better.  That will GUARANTEE the ascent of your blog to the "Top Ten Most Commented" list!
