Flat Earth Test

First consider if the earth were flat, how would a shadow look. We assume that as the sun moves (or actually as the earth turns) a shadow will reflect this. So putting a stick in the ground and watching it shadow should give us an idea of whether the earth is round or flat.

This test involves placing sticks at several points around the globe and seeing what shadows they cast. If the earth were flat shouldn’t the shadows all be alike. Since the earth would not be rotating as the globe (an orb), the shadows couldn’t move either so the shadows should all be similar. If you think the flat earth does rotate, it could only rotate like a record on a turntable. If the sun is in a stationary position relative to the earth, the shadows again would move but their length would not shorten because the sun’s position relative to the stick would not change the angle.

This is not an absolute proof that the earth is not flat but it is correct in its assumptions that can be drawn.

Hard Rock Candy

To all who are interested,I generally make hard rock candy for my family. I have a secret that most dont know about. The art to perfect candy is a good pan,right ingredients, correct amount of the ingredients,a candy thermometer,and extremely low humidity. That is primarily the most important thing.

Low humidity is the difference between candy that sticks to your teeth and candy that doesn’t. Extremely low humidity causes more moisture to leave the candy quicker, so less sticking.
Thank you for allowing me to post.

Americans Receiving Unordered Chinese Packages

Source: forbes.commohamed1982eg / PixabayWhy are people in China sending random households in America packages? The packages are filled with low cost trinkets and they are received by people whom have not ordered the items. It comes out that it is a practice called brushing and it’s an illegal practice. Brushing is a way companies fraudulently boost their sales and get positive feedback for their products.

Positive feedback is valued because when a company’s product listed on an e-commerce site has a high rating, the sales will be enhanced. Shipping the product is usually very cheap so it cost very little for a company to engage in this practice. It has been found that brushing actually works to increase a company’s sales. A study done by the College of William and Mary, it was found that a company using this technique raised their rankings up to 10 times faster than if not using this ploy.

When you’re looking for post ideas, it’s always good to look for primary post tags that pay well,
yet don’t have that many other posts that will compete with your post.

That way, your post is bound to rank higher (and longer) on the new post category.

Of course, you want to check the categories before posting, just to make sure your post is a good fit with the tag.

I’ve split these tags into two sets, each sorted by

  • Total posts in the category
  • Average SBD/Post as % of the overall median (minimum 125% of median)

Hawaii Resurrects Cold War Warnings

Source: shtfplan.comRetired air raid sirens are being reactivated due to the threats from North Korea. Ted Tsukiyama, a WWII vet and a Hawaii resident said ‘I suppose that’s necessary as a precaution, but I don’t think North Korea is gonna attack’. But in any event the warnings are being resurrected. Primarily due to the repeated threats voiced by kin jong-un along with the saber rattling response from the president. The equipment was originally installed during WWII as a early warning for the residents of Hawaii. Currently the state is attempting to educate or re-educate its 1.4 million residents on how to prepare for a nuclear attack.

Stealing Cars Without Needing the Keys

Source: dailymail.co.uk Car thieves can break into a car in under a minute by using high tech devices. By using a relay box, the code can be obtained from a nearby key (but not in the thief’s possession) and relay the unlocking code to the car’s on board computer. Once this relay is completed the car will respond by opening the doors. You can purchase a relay box on eBay for a little over $100. Relay theft kits have 2 transmitters / receivers that communicate with each other. One is used to scan for the key and communicate with the key fob to obtain the access code. Once the code is obtained, this relay box will transmitter the code to the other relay box. When the code is received by the second box (located near the target vehicle) it will transmit the code to the car’s onboard computer and the car will unlock. Cars that are equip with keyless entry systems are susceptible to relay theft. One deterrent is to keep the car fob in a metal case. This will ground the signal and prevent it from being read by the relay box. Another is to use conventional devices like the steering wheel lock. As cars get more convenient for the owner, they also get more vulnerable to thieves.

Spain’s Bank Forcing ATM Use

Source: thedailycoin.orgCaixaBank just cut the banks branch hours to 8:15 am to 11 am, less than 3 hours a day. It’s forcing its customers to complete their transactions through the ATM. This is a common trend among the banking industry. The first reason is to reduce the need for human resources. As we have come to know, humans need time off and ATMs don’t. If banks can reduce humans they can reduce expenses related to human frailties, as we can see robots are the future.

As you consider further, you may see that the banks are reducing the number of branches and services that involves human interaction. Is it a harbinger of things to come. Not to be of a ‘doom and gloom’ mentality but why are they collapsing the banking footprint? Perhaps it is related to the growth of cryptocurrencies, since people are gravitating to banking through their cell phone and the need for a physical bank is diminishing or is it due to the end of money (physical dollars) as we know it?

Are we on the verge of banks going the way of the dinosaur (and hopefully the overpaid bankers as well)? As we watch the evolution of the economies, we may be acutely aware that the current system is inviable. Also the way we historically thought of currency or money is rapidly changing. But the future (as it usually is) is not clear and we must do our best and hone our bartering skills.

Facebook Account Hacked

Source: telegraph.co.ukJasbir Mann’s facebook account was compromised and he found more than 100 fraudulent payments adding up to about 12,000 pounds. He admittedly stored his debit card details on the site. Under facebook’s systems once a purchase is made, future authorization for payment will not be requested. He discovered the fraud when he found 110 transactions to a online gambling site which he had never used or visited. He contacted the bank and his card was cancelled. The bank advised him to remove his card information from the website. Initially facebook began to reimburse the monies taken but then the reimbursements stopped. They reimbursed him about 1/2 of the money he lost. He checked his facebook account and initially all the 110 transactions were listed. He contacted facebook and raised a dispute, after this he checked his account and all the transactions were erased from the site. He received messages from facebook requesting more information about the fraudulent payment and referred him to a link which Mr. Mann said “didn’t work”. He complains that Barclays (his bank) nor facebook was very cooperative in assisting him in recovering his money. After 2 months, facebook finally reimbursed him in total.

Wikipedia on the Dark Web

Source: twitter.comEveryone knows what Wikipedia is but how many of you know what the dark web is? In some countries because of their government efforts to throttle access to certain sites, people are not able to access Wikipedia. Alec Muffett, a former facebook security engineer, has ventured on a solution. He has put together an experimental Wikipedia service on the dark web.

This site is a trial and will only be running for a short time. It will be accessible using the Tor browser and it uses its own onion service to encrypt the traffic. The Tor browser routes the packets through a maze of routers to hide the IP of the user. In 2014, Muffett launched an onion service for facebook and released the open source enterprise onion toolkit. This site is not affiliated with the Wikimedia foundation and because it is in the experimental stage, the bugs have not been addressed.

Homeless Man Reward $300,000

Johnny Bobbitt is a homeless vet with a caring heart. He came across Kate McClure, the damsel in distress. She was stranded when her car ran out of gas on the southbound I-94 near Philadelphia. Bobbitt was living near the exit ramp where McClure’s car stalled. He approach the car and told Ms. McClure to stay in the car, lock the doors and he would go get some gas. He walked a few blocks to the gas station and used his last $20 dollars to purchase some gas. He returned and got the car running, Ms. McClure had no money with her and she promised to repay him.

The following day McClure along with her boyfriend, Mark D’Amico sought out Bobbitt near the exit ramp. They thanked Bobbitt for his kindness and repaid him. They returned several times over the next few weeks and again gave him some money. Over this time, they felt a need to provide more assistance considering Bobbitt’s financial state and his thoughtful act. They started a GoFundMe campaign, the effort went viral and has raised over $300,000.

Good for Mr. Bobbitt, Ms. McClure and Mr. D’Amico. We could use more people doing the right thing.

Latest Intel Core Processors Have Security Flaws

Intel has confirmed that it’s lastest processor has a vulnerability to remote hacking. The problem is with the onboard ‘Management Engine’. It has multiple holes that could allow remote attacks to run malicious software and get privileged access to take over the computer. This vunerability affects sixth, seventh and eighth generations of the Core chips. Also the Pentium, Celeron, Atom and Xeon chips maybe affected.

The vulnerabilities can allow hackers to load and execute arbitrary code outside the visibility of the user and operating system. Other flaws affect the Management Engine and the Server Platform Services that may give hackers privilege escalation rights.

They have published a detection tool for linux and windows so administrators and users can detect if their system is vulnerable. As of yet, there are no firmware updates available. If you own a recent PC with a Core or Pentium Intel chip you can be fairly certain that your computer is affected.

Budweiser Vows to be First Beer on Mars

Budweiser will be sending barley into space aboard a cargo supply mission. It will remain at the ISS for a month prior to returning to earth. The barley will be analysed by scientist for changes to the seedlings. Ricardo Marques, a Budweiser VP, said ‘Budweiser is always pushing the boundaries of innovation and we are inspired by the collective American Dream to get to Mars. We are excited to begin our research to brew beer for the red planet’.

20 barley seedlings are being sent on the mission and will be housed in special ‘CubeLab’ containers. The hope is to gain knowledge on how zero gravity affects the growth of the plant and what pitfalls might be encountered when they attempt to brew beer during the long trip.

For now, there are only tentative plans for a manned Mars mission but Budweiser wants to be ready for the day.

Bitcoin Miners in China Wary of Government Scrutinyno

Rows of computer cards along with many fans to prevent the cards from overheating are the trademarks of a ‘mining business’. China has emerged the undisputed leader in bitcoin mining, it is home to four of the five largest bitcoin mining operations.

Due to bitcoin’s nature of decentralization and anonymity the Chinese authorities are intensely scrutinizing the business aspects of mining and marketing bitcoin. Chinese authorities have labelled bitcoin a commodity rather than a currency. Thereby, they can exert tighter controls.

Owners of bitcoin businesses are concerned over the increasing governmental overseeing so some are considering moving their businesses out of China. Some likely countries for relocation are Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Russia and the US. Other factor being considered is the cost of power and the reliability of the power.

Cui is a native of Beijing, he sold a broadband internet company and used some of the money to start up a bitcoin mining company. He currently has 100,000 mining machine and the daily electricity costs run more than 1 million yuan. It is very important that the cost to run the machines doesn’t make the business unprofitable. Also if the power is unreliable, the cost of downtime is expensive.

Leaves are Miracle Mulch

Free mulch is falling right now, as the trees drop their leaves you can reap in a good source of organic nutrients for your garden. Leaves provide several uses:

Compost: shredded leaves can be added to the existing compost pile or be the beginning of a compost pile.

Leaf mold: leaves left to sit for a time will begin to grow mold. Adding these to your compost will help soil building by adding nutrients.

Mulch: mulch is very useful in a number of ways. It retains moisture, limits weed growth and in is useful in controlling the soil temperature.

Leaves absorb about 50% of the nutrients that the tree produces during the summer. When added to the soil or using as mulch, the leaves return these nutrients back to the soil. As an added benefit, they encourage worms and micro organisms to do their work to the soil. They work to lighten the soil which in turn allows the soil to help root growth and aids in the percolation of water. Good percolation reduces the compaction of the soil.

If you experience freezing temperature during the winter and you grow plants that can thrive during the cold weather, leaves can be used to protect them from frost and freezing. It will act as a blanket protecting them from the elements.

Fluorescent Frog

Source: popsci.com

This is the South American polka dot tree frog, it fluoresces. Fluorescence does not mean that it can glow in the dark, it is a property that reflects an ultraviolet (or black light) wavelength. Things that glow in the dark possess a property called phosphorescence, this material gets energized from a light source and dissipates this stored energy over a period of time.

Another way animals or insects can glow is by bioluminescence. This differs from phosphorescence and fluorescence, it causes the glowing effect by a chemical reaction between an enzyme and a pigment in the creature. This reaction produces the energy that causes it to glow. Fireflies glow from bioluminescence.

Bitcoin $31 Million Hack

blank

Source: bloomberg.com

On Tuesday, the company behind Tether announced that the exchange was attacked and tokens from the Tether Treasury wallet were sent to an unauthorized bitcoin address. Tether is a cryptocurrency used by bitcoin exchanges to facilitate trades with fiat currencies. Tether has a market capitalization of $675 million and is ranked as the world’s 20th most valuable virtual currency. The tokens are pegged to fiat currencies allowing users to store and transfer globally and instantly. The company behind Tether said that the tokens are 100% backed by fiat currencies.

Bitcoin’s value took a hit, about $500 but it rebounded later in the day. Bitcoin reached a high of $8,339 in New York trading. So it appears that the hack, although significant, was short term. The hack did fuel the claims that cryptocurrencies maybe too insecure to be consider for use as a mainstream financial trading instrument.

MasterCard to Provide Gold-Backed Debit Card

Source: trunews.com

Glint is a fintech startup that is teaming up with the financial service industry to setup the first challenger to cryptocurrencies. They are proposing a debit card which will be backed by physical (not paper) gold.

The partnership between Lloyds Banking Group and MasterCard are creating an app that allows people to load their credit card with various currencies which can be used to buy a portion of a physical gold bar. Customers can select whether to pay in a currency or gold when they are making a transaction.

From Glint’s website it states:

‘Gold is the most reliable store of value – Glint is the only way to spend it. Through our innovative app, Mastercard, and banking integration, you can use gold as money in every sense of the word. It’s entirely liquid yet still gives the same reassurance and universal recognition it always has. We’re taking gold out of the vaults and putting it into your hands.’

Glint works outside of the banking system with allocated gold reserves in secure, independent vaults and allows for real time exchanges. Users can send physical gold or money in any of 90 world currencies via email, text messages or bank transfer.

Upsurge in Earthquake for 2018

Source: theguardian.com

 

 

 

 

 

Scientists are predicting a huge increase in the number of earthquakes next year. They believe variations in the speed of the earth’s rotation could trigger the seismic activity especially in tropical regions. Even though the fluctuations in rotation are small, they could cause the release of vast amounts of underground energy.

Rebecca Bendick and Roger Bilham presented a paper outlining the link between earth’s rotation and seismic activity. In their study, they looked at EQs of magnitude 7 and greater since 1900. They found 5 periods where there were significantly higher numbers of large EQs, in these periods there were 25 to 30 EQs during the year and the rest of the time the average number was about 15 EQs.

They measured the earth’s rotation by means of an atomic clock. They found a correlation between the periods of high intensity EQs and the change in the rotation. Bilham said ‘The earth is offering us a five year heads up on future EQs’.

The earth’s rotation began one of its periodic slowdowns more that four years ago thus Bilham said ‘The inference is clear, next year we should see a signigicant increase in the number of severe EQs. We could easily have 20 a year starting in 2018.’

Based on the uptick in EQs being reported within the past few months, they maybe on to something.

Police Can Request DNA Without Consent

 

blank

Source: twitter.com

Lately DNA testing services have been advertising to test your DNA so you can more accurately determine your lineage / ancestry. I understand why people are interested in their heritage and would like to find out more information regarding their past history. Unfortunately I don’t think these people are aware of what this information can and most likely is being used for. A similar case is when people provided their family tree information along with photos to facebook. If you have followed what has been going on with facebook you will realize providing this information that appears to be innocuous ultimately comes back to bit you. Once it is posted, it is too late to take it back.

Police can in the event you are suspected (not indicted) of a crime or if you have a warrant, they can request access to your DNA profile from both Ancestry and 23andMe websites. I believe 23andMe says it doesn’t comply with such requests but why would you take the chance?

In addition, police can request information on your relatives that can provide them information about you in a circuitous fashion.

In summary, you PAY these companies to process your DNA and willingly provide them with a sample. Now you just made some of your private information public. I don’t follow the logic. In the case of the facebook user they volunteer this information so they are a little more frugal but also foolish. Are you aware of some news stories where people applied for a job and were told that they got the job only to be let go a short time later because their employer found something deleterious on their facebook page?

Feds Considering NIRP

blank
The president and CEO of the US federal reserve bank out of San Francisco, John Williams indicated the the US may look at NIRP (Negative Interest Rate Policy). In his opening statement at the 2 day conference on Asian economic policy he said ‘We will all be better able to contain the next economic recession if we develop approaches that succeed even when many countries are simultaneously constrained by the lower bound, and that means taking into account the nature of monetary policy spillovers’.

He added ‘Strategies that central banks should consider including not only the bond buying and forward guidance used widely in the last recession, but also negative interest rates that was used in some non US countries, as well as untried tools including so called price level targeting or nominal income targeting. Central banks may also want to consider setting a higher inflation target.’

If NIRP is enacted, that would be a major impetus for the precious metals. The reason is that precious metals are a store of wealth. It is true that precious metals do not earn a yield or pay interest but if the alternative (money in the bank) has a negative interest then the money stored in the bank loses money over time and precious metals will not. Precious metals have been beaten down in price to keep the naked shorts from exploding. If savers / investors begin to pull their money from the banks some of it will likely be placed in the metals and the price will rise. Undoubtedly the bankers (commercials) will try to stem the tide by issuing more paper metal contracts (naked shorts) but eventually the market will demand delivery in actual metal and not fiat currency. Not if but when this occurs the price of the metals will go exponential.

Some will say that the money will flow in the stock market and I agree but the stock market is overvalued now and the influx of more money will exacerbate this. If you are in doubt of the market being overvalued, I urge you to take a look at the P/E (price/earnings) ratios. Some money will flow into the crypto market, again I agree but remember the selling point of the cryptos is that there is a cap on how many can be mined. If you can’t afford a bitcoin now when the influx happens you will be looking at being able to afford one one millionth of one. By the way, I am an advocate of cryptos but I am cautious because it is not a tangible asset.

Man Buried With Cheese Steak

blankRichard Lussi was 76 when he passed away of heart complications on October 10. Throughout his life he was enamored with Pat’s cheese steak so much so that he would drive from his Pennsylvania home for more than 2 hours to get to Pat’s King of Steaks. Pat’s was founded in 1930 and is credited with being the originator of the cheese steak. Mr. Lussi said the sandwich was so good that he want to eat it in the afterlife. He was quoted ‘What do you think (I want)? Pat’s cheese steak! Pat’s wiz – with no onions because they’ll come back to haunt me’.

Dominic Lussi, his son, in keeping with his father’s desire for the cheese steak bought 2 sandwiches and placed them in his father’s coffin. Dominic said “We were just going to get one but my pop always said, ‘If you’re going to Pat’s, you always get two'”.

Rest in peace and enjoy those cheese steaks Mr. Lussi.

Algae plumes are cropping up throughout the Great Lakes, Chesapeake Bay, the Snake River (Idaho), the Finger Lakes (New York) and in California’s Central Valley. The main cause is due to the fertilizer run off from farms. Last year in Florida, the governor declared a state of emergency and closed the beaches when the algae bloom spread from Lake Okeechobee to nearby estuaries. This year the effect to the Gulf of Mexico were the biggest on record. Within the past decade, there has been reported outbreaks in every state.

The health affects are devastating. Todd Steele was competing in a fishing tournament on Lake Erie. After the competition he was driving home when he felt lightheaded and nauseous. The following morning he was too dizzy to stand and his overheated body was covered with hives. He said ‘It attacked my immune system and shut down my body’s ability to sweat. If I wasn’t a healthy 51 year old and had some type of medical condition, it could have killed me’.

Sea life is also being affected because the rapid growth of algae causes the oxygen levels in the water to deplete. Fish and other marine life in the water die off due to the lack of oxygen.

Physical Gold Shortage

blank

Although the price does not reflect it, there is a severe shortage of gold at the refiner’s level. If one looks closely at the movement in the spot price, you might see when the feds raised the interest the price drop was not sustained. Normally after an interest rate hike, the dollar rises and precious metals go lower. Another tell tale sign is large amount of paper contracts required to force the price of the precious metals to go down.

Jim Rickards has discovered on recent trips to China and Switzerland that the refiners are experiencing difficulty in sourcing the raw metal, so much so that they have a waiting list of buyers. Recent news article reveal that the amount of gold mined is falling and some mining companies have been forced to shut down due to financial troubles. This will exacerbate the supply of the metal, compounding the shortage.

Bitcoin Surges in Zimbabwe

Bitcoin is trading at $13,500 in Zimbabwe, this is almost double the value it is trading on international exchanges. After the military seized power the demand for bitcoin surged.

Golix, a local exchange reports that since the news of the coup hit the price of bitcoin rose about 10%. Over the last month this exchange had $1 million bitcoin transactions compared to $10,000 transactions for the whole of 2016.

You may recall that Zimbabwe is the country that issued a $100 trillion note because of the country’s hyperinflation. Since 2009, Zimbabwe abandoned its own currency and has been using foreign currencies for their transactions.

California Sued Over Weed Killer

California is being sued by monsanto and US farm groups for issuing cancer warnings on the glyphosate herbicide. California has added glyphosate (the main ingredient in roundup) to the list of cancer causing chemicals. This came after the IARC (WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer) ruled glyphosate a carcinogen. The IARC also warned that usage of some of monsanto’s products, including roundup, could cause Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, autism and cancer.

These farm groups along with monsanto claim that glyphosate does not cause cancer and the warning label should be considered a violation of the First Amendment. monsanto’s vice president of global strategy, scott partridge stated ‘Such warnings would equate to compelled false speech, directly violate the First Amendment, and generate unwarranted public concern and confusion’.

Please refer to this other post regarding monsanto:

Indestructible GoPro

Erik Storm is a tour group guide at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. While he was conducting a tour, he placed his GoPro down and the camera was swallowed up by a lava flow.

His first thought was the camera was toast but GoPro claims that their cameras are indestructible. So now to put their claim to the test. The camera was chiseled out of the cooled lava flow.

Once he got home, he chiseled off the remaining lava rock off the camera and he discovered that the wifi light was still flashing. He was able to download the video captured when the lava flow swallowed the camera.

He proved GoPro’s claim. The temperature of flowing lava is about 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit.

Fukushima Cover Up

Keeping cancers a secret is one way they are covering up the seriousness of the radiation. They are enforcing the cover up for economic reasons.

Some of the talking points:

*** The majority of 2 million inhabitants of Fukushima have been encouraged to accept living with radioactive contamination so to protect the economic and security interests.

*** Shiina Chieko, a resident of Fukushima stated that people have adopted denial as a way to cope with the present danger. She cited her sister-in-law ignoring her son’s continuous nosebleeds.

*** Yokota Asami returned to Fukushima in September of 2011. When she expresses her concerns over the radiation dangers she is met with derision. Her son has also been victimized. In his high school, he voiced his objection regarding eating local grown foods in their school lunches and he opted to avoid participating in any outdoors activities to lessen his exposure to the outdoor radiation. When the time came to his high school exam the principal told him that those whom take breaks won’t pass. He failed the exam, he asked to see the exam and found he had a score high enough to have passed.

*** Yokota Asami also stated that pediatricians tell their patients with thyroid cancer to keep it a secret.

*** Mrs. Asami’s statement have been collaborated by Mr. Okoshi whom is also a resident. His two daughters experienced miscarriages and Mr. Okoshi discovered that doctors are advising women living in the area to abort presumably to avoid miscarriages and defects.

Having followed this story since its inception, I noted that Hawaii (closest state to Fukushima) news has down played the radiation affects to the islands. Recently the news has penned articles to the contrary. Here’s a link to one –

— University of Hawaii research shows radiation in Hawaii soil 2016 as bad as 7 prefectures in Japan 2 weeks after Fukushima

Perhaps the cat is out of the bag.

Juicy Corned Beef Special at Hershel’s East Side Deli

This visit takes me to the Reading Terminal Market
and a big heaping juicy Corned Beef Special at Hershel’s East Side Deli.

 

Right across from DiNic’s, Hershel’s serves all the classic deli meats –
pastrami, brisket, and my favorite, corned beef.

I had the Corned Beef Special (Russian dressing and coleslaw),
and as you can see I had a heck of a time keeping the sandwich together.

I even found some on my backpack as I was putting my gear away.

About Hershel’s

Hershel’s is named after the owner’s uncle Hershel, who fled WWII era Poland to Russia, then to the US,
where he settled in NYC and got a job in 1946 as a cook in Katz’s Deli on Manhattan’s LES.

When Katz’s Deli was sold in 1989, he retired, feeling as though he made his mark.

from the website:
“Steven Safern, together with his partner, Andrew Wash, and with the support of many others,
opened Herschel’s East Side Deli inside Philadelphia’s Reading Terminal Market.

While working in his old-fashioned, Jewish-style deli, Steven is often addressed as “Hershel”
by customers who don’t know his real name.

Far from taking offense to the mistake, Steven says that being called Hershel brings a smile to his face
because it serves as a reminder of the deli’s inspiration.”

“Their food is made from scratch daily – you’ll never see any prepackaged meats or salads.
They carve everything fresh right in front of the customers and make orders to customers’ requests.
Steven believes “that’s how Uncle Hirsh would have wanted it done.””

Delicious Liege Waffle Honey Chicken at Waffles & Wedges

This week I’m at Waffles & Wedges, where I’m having the Waffle Chick.

The Waffle Chick, from Waffles & Wedges, is a delicious take on the classic fried chicken and waffles –
a generous portion of breaded chicken bites (think nugget sized fried chicken, not fast food)
drizzled with honey served atop a Liege waffle (crunchy outside, chewy inside)

Video at:

 

The combination of the juicy chicken, the honey and the Liege waffle
make for an awesome combination – savory, sweet, and substantive.

This place has so much variety that you could go again and again
without running out of things that you swear you’ll try next time.

I’ll let them describe what variety awaits you:

“Our shop offers Waffles, Wedges and more with toppings galore.
From scratch Liege waffles can satisfy your sweet cravings.
Our potato Wedges are baked, no they are not fried.
Pretzel rolls for sandwiches, both sweet and savory.

This spin off, features the Pbon and Philly Melt varieties,
signatures of the bright yellow Pbon’s Fresh Phood truck”

 

Big Guy warning: the inside’s kinda small,
but the warmer weather will bring outside tables.

Defintely will be back to this place…

But don’t just take my word for it…
