I can't believe how hard that must be to avoid. Tomatoes are a brilliant thing, especially when warm. I can't imagine how it must feel to not be able to enjoy anything made with them.

The driver that police suspect caused the accident is being questioned in the hospital.

As for our track coach - original news at 10PM was that his spine was severed at the neck and he was in ICU fighting for his life. Last update I heard was at midnight and he had moved some of his fingers and was able to breath on his own.

Sounds like he has a partially severed spine.

Yeah, the pizza places exist, but they're not all that common. The local food is easier to find and it's really good. I only went to the pizza buffet in Shijiazhuang to keep homesickness under control.

19th century New Yorkers weren't too good with shielding either, and I really couldn't handle the added weight.

Also, if you're allergic to one nightshade, it's not uncommon to be allergic to the others.

I prefer them raw.

Is it good pizza tho?

Ah, I see then...

Yeah, the local food is good, that much I can agree... outside of the school food.

The context is that I went on a school trip there when I was much younger and we communed with the students there for the week and there was some stuff that tasted well enough, but others... not so much. Particularly the biscuits.

I'm pretty sure the author of the fanfic I'm reading has played Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, because some of the quotes they're using as chapter introductions are exactly as I remember them from SMAC. I played that game a lot in my teen years. It's probably my favourite game of all time.
