Courier New, Lucida Console, or Fixedsys?

I'm having a hard time picking a fixed-width font.

Courier New is like a typewriter, except better.

Lucida Console is curly, less pixely, and is smoother than the other fonts.

Fixedsys is for coders and wannabe 1337 people.

Which one should I choose? Hmm.

Post-China Ra..n...errr...Report

Remember when there was this Israeli or Russian or whatever "LAX" officer that told me to delete all of my pictures at the airport?

Apparently, the Israeli state airline El Al has this paranoid anti-terrorism or whatever rule. They make you have a full screening after check-in.

And they don't let you take pictures at the airport. Regardless of what airline you fly.

Or so I've heard.

If this IS true, here's a tip... DON'T BE SO PSYCHO! Planespotting is a hobby. Even if you don't take pictures for the hell of it, what if you're making a scrapbook or whatever? Jeez.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Usuyaki Chiizu Rice Cracker

The internet's never heard of it. I've never heard of it either.

FIVE SENSES REVIEW

See: bright yellow packaging and some Japanese i can't recognize

Smell: cheesy or buttery

Touch: the crackers are little flat tennis-ball size yellow disks. they feel bumpy.

Hear: crunchy

Taste: crunchy and buttery. THEY ARE AWESOME. You'll love them if you like rice cakes.

Overall: I WILL buy them again. The bag's a little bit empty though. (4.5/5)

Matthew's Best Hit Soda? WTF?

No, seriously, WTF?

FIVE SENSES REVIEW:

See: colorful plastic packaging. Japanese on one side. Crazy hippie dude on the other. Rainbow in the background.

Smell: LIKE RAMUNE! WTF?!?

Touch: bottly

Hear: fizzy

Taste: fruity, ramune-y, but quickly transitions to an acceptable but weird aftertaste. Fades out soon after.

Overall: it's good. I'd buy it again, if I didn't break a bottle at the store by accident :\ :/ (3/5)
