Overheard in San Francisco

Young Homeless Guy is sitting on the floor with a cardboard sign. Another guy walks by, holding what look like large leftover bags from a restaurant.

Guy With Bags: [stops and offers the bags] would you like something to eat?
Young Homeless Guy: is there garlic or avocado in it?
GWB: I don't think so, why?
YHG: I am allergic to both. Especially avocado: when I eat it, my throat gets all scratchy.

    I once oferred a homeless guy who asked me for a quarter because he's hungry, a muffin I just bought (I was sitting in the outdoor part of a cafe). He took it in his hands, examined it, and then said no thanks and returned it back to me. Annoying!!

    Another example of how Europe is investing a lot of money in research? Are there any theorists in the US who ever got that much money for a research award?

    I don't believe YHG was a European theorist...

    A couple of times, after failing to finish a ginormous salad at Intermezzo (in Berkeley), I tried to give about half a salad to a YHG outside Intermezzo. The response one gets is "what dressing is it?".
