Right next to the ketchup station, I should think (I'm not into mustard, myself).
You shouldn't need to pay for mustard or ketchup, as they're condimentary.
Mustard tastes like a gas leak.
Specially if it's a mustard gas leak.

McDonald's charges for barbecue sauce which should be a hate crime

Why has the black population of San Francisco shrunk so much over the past decades ?
As a guess, cost of housing coupled with income disparity.
The shrinking over time indicating that this disparity has increased over time ?
I think it relates more to the cost of housing skyrocketing over time.
Hasn't San Francisco conducted a bunch of disastrous gentrification initiatives that disproportionately affected PoC? I feel like I remember that being talked about here, possibly by @Owen Glyndwr or @Lexicus.
Doubt I did, don't know much about it.
That's certainly part of the skyrocketing housing costs. Even without any particular "gentrification initiatives" though, property values and associated taxes just became absurd there. Even people who could afford to stay had to look hard at whether they really wanted to that badly.
Don't know about gentrification initiatives but the city has had a highway building program with disastrous consequences for neighborhoods of color. It effectively chopped them up. I think the rest of the public transit system has been equally as bad.
There's an Edward Norton movie out (can't remember the name, it was limited release) where he plays a character investigating the racist public transit policies of NYC in the 50's. They would do stuff like putting in bridges that were too short for public transit buses to go under to prevent people from African American communities from going to certain beaches and crap like that. SF (and many American cities) would have acted in similar ways.
You're referring to literally the greatest villain in the entire history of the United States.
You would rate him that far?
Will I be able to AdamCrock it all the way ?
What is an atom crock pot?
Maybe a bit hyperbolic given the, y’know, slavery and genocides and strike/labor busting. But urban development and planning are a big part of the structure that has maintained and exploded the racial inequality to this day, and just about every ****** plan and implementation and program that caused those pernicious echoes in New York ends up going back to Robert Moses in some form, and that terrible programme flows out to all the other major cities in this country, whether in the extensive consultancy work he did in cities like LA, or in the form of his planning progeny who applied his policies elsewhere.
Did we have a thread specifically about the 737 Max situation? I thought we did but I can't find it. There is an update I want to share, I'll post it in the space cadets thread for now as it's an aerospace topic.
a reaction on the "designed by clowns" statements ?
