I Love Daxflame

Daxflame is some kid who runs a popular video diary on youtube. There is debate surrounding the legitimacy of the videos, and if you watch a couple you'll understand why. I'm pretty sure the kid is just a really good actor... I've heard he's an improv student or something. Regardless, he's an absolute riot. If you don't think he is funny, you are wrong.

I would strongly recommend checking out a number of his videos (if not all of them). Some of my favorites include "I Pulled the Ultimate Prank at Lunch", "Trouble in PE Again" and (its a little long) "The Convenient Truth."

Be sure to click "more info" on the descriptions because they're pretty good, as are the tags he puts on each video.

Chips and Burrito Bol, You Will End Me

You learn something new every day. No matter how many times I've gone to Chipotle, no matter how many different orders I've made, I'm amazed that I can still find new things to order that I fall in love with. This tip is brought to you by my friend Chris, who turned me on to getting a Burrito Bol and chips, and then using the chips instead of a fork and treating the Burrito Bol as a 1500 calorie dip. AMAZING. I've done this for my last 7 or 8 visits and am nowhere near getting sick of it.

Of course, this 12% hike in Chipotle spending means I need to get a job 12% sooner...

How I order it:

  • Extra Rice
  • Black beans (sometimes both, that tip will come later)
  • Chicken (usually, steak sometimes, barbacoa is too tough to eat with chips)
  • Hot sauce (usually double what they try to give me)
  • Corn
  • Sour Cream
  • Cheese


I can't wait until the election is over... we can all be friends again

The Chipotle Dilemma

The Chipotle Dilemma, commonly experienced by unemployed males between the ages of 18 and 25, occurs when one wakes up around 11 AM. Groggy, crusty-eyed, and still half awake, should you shower first or go to Chipotle first? Here are the basic arguments...

Arguments for going to Chipotle first:

  • Usually waking up at 11 AM means its been well over 12 hours since you last ate a proper meal, so by this time you're usually famished.
  • After downing roughly 1700 calories of meat, rice, and tortilla, you usually feel like you need to shower anyways.
  • Beating the lunch crowd is key, especially when you're starved.

Arguments to shower first:

  • After eating Chipotle, you usually want to nap right away. If you don't shower and start your day as soon as possible, its conceivable that you won't start your day proper until 4 PM
  • Waking up with a hot shower makes the meal feel a little less like breakfast. Even though the deep hunger hits the moment you awaken, the thought of eating something as hearty as Chipotle within 15 minutes of waking up is often unappealing.
  • Showering is good hygiene. Showering first means you don't feel like a gritball while you're waiting in line with a bunch of cougars.

So there you have it. I honestly couldn't tell you what the right thing to do is. Sometimes it depends on the circumstances, and, in many cases, I would contest that there is no objective right answer. I guess that's what makes it such a timeless dilemma.

Oh, and I'm still unemployed
