    There is a place that does an awesome gyro within walking distance of my house (well, technically not a gyro because the place ain't greek, it's lebanese but, similar concept).

    You guys are making me want one too.
    There's a Middle Eastern place that is staffed either by Lebanese or Palestinians about a mile and a half from my apartment that is fucking delicious, and they totally call them "Gyros."

    So [chat], should I get a gyro or a cheesesteak for dinner on my way home tonight?
    Where are you? If you're not in Philly, then get a gyro.
    I need to go to Philly and have a cheesesteak there for comparison purposes.

    Somehow, I don't think it will stack up.

    I want to find this one place I went to as a kid in Nicetown, but I think they're gone forever.

    Those cheese steaks were amazing.

    There's a place called Nicetown?

    That just strikes me as being really sinister.

    it's a section of the city, and yeah it doesn't look nice.

    Yeah, I only trust descriptively named cities when they're somewhat disparaging. Like, my grandma lives in Old Town and just about everything about that place is old and shitty.

    Also, I finished up ME2 last night again, because I wanted the best ending, and I have to say that the ending isn't anywhere near as bad as I remember it being. It's actually very good, other than...
    The Terminator fight, which is retarded. However, the Saren fight wasn't very good at the end of ME1, either, and that game had one of the best last levels of all-time. I actually really enjoyed the end of ME2 this time through; I think it is a great payoff, that makes it seem like what you did in the rest of the game really mattered. So, while it wasn't as good as the ending to ME1, I think that's an unfair bar to expect it to meet. It's pretty great.

    last night watched a documentary on netflix streaming that was pretty good.

    It is one of the "Secrets of the Dead" series which are made by PBS (so, despite the title, are actually pretty good documentaries and way above what you'd see on the History channel). Most of it was about a couple quite well preserved shipwrecks from Roman times. But it also looked at some of the Roman ruins on the nearby island.

    What was really interesting was their water system (of course). There is no fresh water on the small island at all. Not even a deep water table to drill to. So the romans built two water collection systems that were pretty ingenious. At each one they paved over a large area. This would collect rainwater and channel it into an underground tank where sediment could settle out of the water. Then it was piped to quite a large underground cistern and from there undergound aqueducts ran for miles all over the island.

    Yeah, unless they're actually shaving the meat off a vertical spit just run away as fast as you can. Tzatziki is pretty dope but can definitely vary from place to place, I like mine to be pretty well blended, don't like big chunks of cucumber.

    I think gyro meat is usually cooked with mint, but there are several other spices in it and it has never tasted mint-y to me.

    You might give it another try at a restaurant run by an actual greek or turkish person?
