To Boldly Go Where No Macaroni and Cheese Has Gone Before

Saw this stuff for the first time last night at the grocery store — “Spicy Szechwan Kraft Dinner”:

Packages of "Kraft Dinner Spicy Szechwan"

(For readers in the United States, what gets sold as “Kraft Macaroni and Cheese” where you’re from is sold as “Kraft Dinner” in Canada.)

I can’t imagine it being any good, but I feel compelled to give it a try, just once. Maybe at my next grocery run.

While I believe that airline seats should be widened a little – even people of “average” build find them a bit narrow – I think that the Canadian Supreme Court’s recent ruling that the obese have the right to two airline seats for the price of one on flights within Canada is wrong. Just as airline cargo space has a value and you have to pay accordingly if you bring on more than the standard weight allotment, airline seats have value and you should have to pay for the seats you use.
