The 10 Best Sandwiches in America » Gear Patrol | Men’s Lifestyl By Jesse Zanger - It’s almost impossible to compile a list of the 10 best sandwiches in America. That said, the editors of Gear Patrol put me out to do just that. Honestly, it’s like asking for a definitive list of the 10 most beautiful women ever with 50 of them standing there in front of you. First things first, lets settle on the definition of a sandwich. Main Entry: (noun) Two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between.Etymology: John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich died 1792 English diplomat. With that out of the way, let’s proceed. 9. Hot Truck – Ithaca, New York – Ithaca is known for many things: Home of Cornell. 8.

Cobain's suicide note To Boddah: Speaking from the tongue of an experienced simpleton who obviously would rather be an emasculated, infantile complain-ee. This note should be pretty easy to understand. All the warnings from the punk rock 101 courses over the years, since my first introduction to the, shall we say, ethics involved with independence and the embracement of your community had proven to be very true. For example, when we're backstage and the lights go out and the manic roar of the crowds begin, it doesn't affect me the way in which it did for Freddie Mercury, who seemed to love, relish in the love and adoration from the crowd which is something I totally admire and envy. Sometimes I feel as if I should have a punch-in time clock before I walk out on stage. On our last 3 tours, I've had a much better appreciation for all the people I've known personally, and as fans of our music, but I still can't get over the frustration, the guilt and empathy I have for everyone. Peace, love, empathy, Kurt Cobain
