No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

Never had a Papa Johns near me growing up or even now.

 

I've got a Papa Murphy's though (Where they make the pie fresh and then you take it home and bake it yourself). Good Pizza, but something about the sauce doesn't refrigerate well. And really, is Pizza really Pizza if you can't enjoy it cold from the fridge the next day?

 

We had a Papa Murphy for a little while, but it is long gone and I understand.  They were more expensive than most pizza places and didn't cook it for me.  I don't really have very discriminating tastes when it comes to food, especially pizza.  If I have to cook it myself I can get one at Walmart for half the price and the difference between them is of no importance to me.

The ones at costco are surprisingly good, and the frozen ones are incredibly easy to doctor in some awesome pizza.

The only thing that Papa Johns has to stand out among the pizza chains is the little tub of garlic butter to dip the crust in.

But I live in Iowa. We get our pizza at Casey's, because nothing says 'quality food' like pizza cooked at a gas station.

...at least there are options now. After the francise wars, in the future, if we want to go out to eat, our only choice will be Taco Bell.

I know you didn't just do my boy Casey's dirty like that.

 

But in all seriousness, I find it mildly amusing because my hometown gas station (Not a Casey's, independently owned and operated) cooks Pizza. And it actually lead to my town's Pizza Hut shutting down. The gas station ended up buying the property specifically for the Pizza Ovens.

 

Some times, Gas Station food is legitimately good.

It's like a lot of things in life: it's not so much about WHERE, but about WHO. Get people passionate about something, people who want to be there and actually make it work properly: and you'll get good product.

Casey's pizza is better than any of the National pizza chains, by a wide margin.

Yeah, most of the towns I've lived, Casey's really is the best choice for good pizza. It just always strikes me as bizarre how they outdo chains that supposedly specialize in pizza.

...of course, the buy 10 larges get 1 free promo they run doesnt hurt, either.

That's as many as four tens.

The same reason people not allergic to peanut butter eat peanut butter. Preference makes a difference, and your mileage may vary. Personally: cold pizza is the only slice of heaven left on earth.

Ah yes, the schroedingers pizza argument. I know of a nice little local spot which will give your gas station pizza a run for it's money. :)

I've had Casey's pizza in a pinch, and I don't understand the appeal, but shrug

 

Depends on your area, really. For me, the only real independent pizza place is two hours away (Jerry's Pizza/Morningside Pizza in Sioux City). So if I want a "fresh" Pizza I either generally have to make it myself or go to Casey's (As they do make the Pizza fresh unlike other places). Otherwise it's varying degrees of quality from the Chains - which is Pizza Hut (Too Greasy), Pizza Ranch (Too bland, though they do offer more "off the wall" flavor combinations like Mac and Cheese), Valentinos (Too small!), or Little Caesar's (Which is hot and ready. Not good, but HOT. AND. READY). We've got Domino's too, but I've literally never had it as that's in the town I work in and if I want a Pizza after work, I'll either grab one of the aforementioned Walmart Heat and Eat ones for $5 or if I'm especially hating myself that day I'll get a Little Caesar's.

 

Papa Murphy's doesn't factor into my equations because, as I said, the leftovers don't keep worth a damn so I'm never inclined to spend money on it.

 

 

Likewise, I dont get the appeal of cold pizza? Like that is harder to chew and gives me upset stomach. Why would someone want that?

 

If you get a good pie, there's nothing quite like biting through the cheese layer and getting a mouth full of cold, spiced tomato sauce in the morning. Some people have coffee to perk up - me I'm always jazzed when there is Pizza in the fridge to wake up to.

 

Yeah, most of the towns I've lived, Casey's really is the best choice for good pizza. It just always strikes me as bizarre how they outdo chains that supposedly specialize in pizza.

...of course, the buy 10 larges get 1 free promo they run doesnt hurt, either.

 

Casey's has consistently good pizza because they supplement their income by being a gas station that sells booze and not JUST a pizza joint. A slow day in pizza sales doesn't affect their bottom line the same way it does a dedicated pizza joint, meaning they are allowed to be "wasteful" by throwing out any freshly made dough they didn't use instead of hoarding every scrap of material.

Maybe they're different in different places or something, and your Casey's pizza is just a different thing entirely than my Casey's pizza. I just can't really imagine preferring this stuff over any regular chain.

Still like Uno's deep dish the best. They started offering the day of the week specials on every day... Which means I can get a cheaper Farmer's Market pizza any damn day I want. This is very dangerous.

I also enjoy cold pizza sometimes. Also pineapple on pizza. :p

It took me a minute to mentally separate Papa John's pizza from Tony's pizza because I don't buy pizza much.  Now I feel like I owe Tony an apology, unless he's crazy too.
