Which Service Do You Prefer?

Recently I have begun working as a DoorDash delivery driver. While this is not something I want to do (full-time) for long, it is working out pretty well so far. Starting to wish I'd started months ago instead of picking up that last job I did which made me only half as much per hour and with tons of stupid rules to go along with the poor pay. Anyway, that's a bit off topic. As I drive around and make deliveries I have occasionally run into other similar delivery services such as Grubhub and Ubereats. To my knowledge all of them typically work in similar ways, thought as someone who also looked into Ubereats, one difference that means a lot to me specifically between Ubereats and DoorDash is the lack of necessity to have a 4 door car. It's something that makes total sense if you are driving people around, but totally nonsensical when all you are driving around is food. (So to anyone out there thinking, like I did for so long, that you can't even deliver food because your car only has two doors, see if DoorDash is available in your area). Anyway, back to my question. I've never actually used any of these services myself before signing up to work for one of them, so I'm wondering, for people who have used these services before, do you typically have a preference of one over the others or is it just dependent on who delivers from your favorite places to eat?

Should I stock up for the Polar Vortex?

I just moved to New York and I couldn't have had worse timing because the Polar Vortex/Winter Hurricane/Bomb Cyclone is about to make its way to the East Coast. Despite the dramatic terminology, I'm not all that worried about it. What I am a little concerned about is grocery shopping. I have some food in the fridge, but probably not enough to last me through the end of the week. I'm not going to want to venture out to a grocery store in the middle of a storm, but I could always just order something for delivery if I do end up running low. That would definitely cost more than grocery shopping, but it would save me a trip to the store.

Sleepless on Alcohol?

I recently started trying new types of alcohol, buying various kinds from the grocery store to drink them at home. Usually I don't drink by myself, but I figured having a bottle/can a night, maybe twice a week, wouldn't be harmful. But I recently noticed something about myself that I never noticed before - alcohol gives me energy. I drank a single bottle of beer around 6-7 pm, but it kept me up all night! I absolutely couldn't sleep. It energized me more than a cup of coffee.

I've talked to a few people about it, but they've never heard of this effect. Alcohol is supposed to be a sedative, but a single beer made me energetic. I'm not a stranger to alcohol; the beer barely affected me in any other way. I'm a little irritated that I'm not going to be able to have a single bottle of beer unless I drink it before 4 pm! Does anyone else have this reaction to alcohol? No one else I've talked to has had this reaction. How do I enjoy a bit of alcohol without being awake all night?

Is a hot dog a sandwich?

Ok, so my friends and I are having an argument here and we need to settle it. I thought this was obvious but apparently not. For centuries the hot dog and the sandwich have been considered different anomalies, as I understood. But, apparently some people out there group them into the same category.

By definition, they are the same. Meat in bread with toppings at your discretion. So, why do we classify them differently?

I never asked myself that but it raises a good question. In fact, this argument escalated well past hot dog. We went into burgers, tacos, you name it; how do we categorize food? It damn near caused an existential crisis. So before you answer, really ask yourself what a sandwich is and how it differs from a hot dog/etc. Really. Think.

A big bowl of fruit loops or m&ms?

My friends and I fell into a huge debate about which we would rather eat: a bowl of fruit loops or m&m. I was surprised how passionate everyone was about their particular answer. What's your answer: would you rather eat a big bowl of fruit loops or m&ms? Then comment on why!
