Wouldn’t “show in Finder” just give people opportunity to break the Photos library?

If I had “show in Finder”, to not break the library, wouldn’t I option-drag the photo in question to the Desktop?

If I wanted to email, maybe, but if I wanted to upload somewhere, maybe not.
it is now a royal PITA to edit a photo in photoshop and save it back to photos. I hear an update fixes that... yeah...

I don't really drink much soda, I haaaaate sparkling water, and I'm not much for coconut. But somehow this stuff (got an 8 pack for a dollar) was fantastic. Went back to the store the next day and they were sold out.

Extra ingredients on pizza are overrated.

If you can’t shoot it straight cheese, it’s a bad pizza. Same goes for burgers.

I’ve also found, when ordering pizza for large groups, despite everyone saying they like all kinds of shit on their pizza, the cheese ends up the most popular. Of course, I only order good pizza.

I ordered pizza for a group of dudes a couple of times last month. In both cases, the meat lover's was gone first, and the rest of the stuff kind of languished. It wasn't super out there, but I guess when people say, "I like anything," they mean, "I like any of the three common pizza toppings, on their own."

My family will eat all kinds of pizza toppings, we like variety and are not vegetable-averse. Sausage/eggplant, pepperoni/pepper, chicken/spinach, are common. But if we have a party for kids, yeah, have to have basic cheese. I'm always surprised how many kids these days are still squeamish about vegetables or food with color even when they are 12.

Agreed that if the base sauce, cheese, and crust are not good, no amount of toppings will fix it. Our usual pizza/sub place got new owners and the quality of the crust/toppings went way down. Now we are shopping for a new place.

Is T. Anthony’s still around? They weren’t bad for a New York style.

I assume Jimmy’s is gone. I’m pretty sure they hated making pizza.

If I was having Iowa pizza, I’d try and bury it under stuff, too.

Well, it was Pizza Hut, so I don't know that anything about it was Iowa-specific.

The thicker the crust, the more oily it needs to be, and Pizza Hut benefits from the extra oil the meat gives it. Plain cheese Pizza Hut is dry.

A true first-class outfit with thicker crust will have an option to oil that sucker up, which brings the cheese to it’s rightful place. For example, the one deep dish place that’s any good around here has “buttercrust”.

I grew up eating Pizza Hut, it's definitely a comfort food for me. Except that their traditional (perfectly oily) pan crust is now a $1 adder, which I go for every time. Whatever cardboard they've chosen as the standard crust is chewy garbage.

I had one a couple blocks away, which was great. Then the supermarket next store burned down, and they dozed the entire property, which included the Pizza Hut, even though it was still standing.

A new one opened a half-mile away, and it is not good.

Aside from the occasional Bertucci's, we do local shops. In town I think there's a Dominos but never ordered there. Our Uno's got demolished and is now a self-storage facility. There's a Papa Gino's that's not bad, surviving I think because it is close to the high school and convenient for after-school gatherings. Bertucci's is good if you like that brick oven crispy thing.

As I’ve mentioned before, it’s a crime that Uno’s is my city’s primary pizza export.

Much better is Lou Malnati’s. Lou started out at Uno’s, and then left to make it right.

Our local grocery chain, H-E-B, has Italian made frozen pizzas. We get the 4-cheese variety and add a few things: pepperoni, black olives and mushrooms, and a TON of "pizza cheese blend". It bakes in less than half an hour, and turns out great. "Classic?" Nope. Not even "Chicago style-like". But it's good.
