2 cents: I have lived all over the place so I think it is funny how protective some people are about where they live. We all know the south is the only place in the US worth a damn. Oh wait, not that's Kali, or was it Oregon, oh yea it's smaller, it's NYC. There are great and bad places all over the world. Speaking of "where people Think you live". I live in Denver. Well to a lot of people in the world, I live in the mountains. Yea I am a mile high but I don't live in the friggin mountains. Second, we don't close Colorado down in the winter. We love the snow. We have more sun each hear than San Diego. We are not a COW town, although we love our steak. Lastly for my left coast friends: I don't live in the East. Yea I am east of you, but I live (usually I say in the West) but in the mid-west maybe. Rant, I need more coffee. cr****
I'm at work right now (I work in a huge file wearhouse so that lawyers can tell me what to do) losing my mind. A lawyer requested over 200 files from 75 different boxes all over the wearhouse. It's a big task, but I'm not usually one to get to upset over anything that is in my job description. But one thing that will put me over the edge, is 75 boxes from the 70's and 80's that nobody had the common sense to label and organize. Just hundreds of papers, not in folders, just totally thrown into a box. Lawyers should be removed from the planet (unless there are any inforooers :p). They are unorganized, lazy, and caused the Holocaust. When a lawyer is born, every man on the planet stops masturbating. They just suddenly lose all interest in feeling any enjoyment.
Thanks typing on my phone is a real pain in the arse! With big words like that it wants me to seperate them and turn them into two different words.

Capitalizing it when referring to a specific region was your criteria.
If I live in a place where there is only one mountain range nearby, and I say, I am from the mountains, that doesn't necessarily mean that I am from the one mountain range nearby. If there is a mountain range that is known as "the Mountains," though, yes, I think you would capitalize it when referring to it. The southern United States are known as "the South." When I say, "I am from the South," and I am clearly referring to the southern United States, I am referring to specific region, which, again, under your previous explanation, should be capitalized.
The specificity has to be in the wording itself, not in the intent. Almost every noun is specific in its intent, but capitalization comes into play when something specific is known just from its being written/spoken, without context.
Context was the entire point of my previous posts, so I guess this is where we disagree.
Since getting rid of cable and opening up my Netflix and Hulu to roommates, I don't bother with anything anymore (ratings, queues, etc.). The things that are suggested to me aren't within the slightest realm of interest to me.

If you get ambitious you can remove things from your watched list so it doesnt use them to suggest anymore, but that does seem hard.

On the subject of star ratings, The only thing I really rate are books on goodreads which also is on,y whole stars. I go something like this 5 stars - I love it, basically worked its way into my "favorites" list. 4 stars - thoroughly enjoyed, would absolutely recommend, but not quite a favorite. 3 stars - satisfied, it is what is, didn't dislike. 2 stars - didn't enjoy at all, wouldn't recommend, but read completely 1 star - bad, usually reserved for material I can't even dredge through to completion.
I eat these like it is my job. They are good for bringing to work and are pretty decent quality for the price. The Moroccan is my favorite.
Do they heat in the pouch?
Yeah, you rip part of the top open to vent then heat for 2-2.5 minutes. When it's done, you pour it into the container of your choosing. I like it because it lets you get around having to touch a bowl that has been in the microwave and is 40000 degrees.
