    Maybe for a steak. If it needs A1, then it wasn't cooked right.

    I had a coworker from College Station and a friend from the Dallas Fort Worth area who had both made similar comments about BBQ sauce Being for people who can't Barbecue, and also random BBQ shows on TV, so it's not like I'm well cultured in Texas cuisine. Just second hand experience

    Stupid laptop.

    Anyway. BBQ is popular in Texas. There's a great place in Austin that me and another CB poster recently tried. Absolutely delicious.

    I know "real Texans" are against A1 sauce, but never heard of BBQ being off-limits.

    It would be nice if the "Wolves" introduced would also bring out Moon Knight and Blade

    The Kravinoffs are creepy as f**k...the way Ana idolizes her father despite the way he treats his family, how she didnīt care a s**t he killed before her eyes the mother that basically raised her alone, how she killed her brother to please him...she gives me Elektra Complex vibes big time, and that creeps me.

    And I donīt think she WANTS to be killed; she thinks her father is going to kill her because she is not good enough for him, but accepts it because he is like a god for her.

    THose guys had craptastic steaks, A1 covers up the bad, in fact a1 covers up the taste of everything.

    I will say if you want hair on your chest, you should get in a time machine and get a pizza hut A1 steak pizza. It's to pizza as Brute is to cologne.

    I bet Kaine wears Brute

    Great issue. It's definitely a 180 switch for Kaine to go from hunting Ben across the American Midwest to calling him "a better man" and worried about having to live up to the legacy of the original Scarlet Spider.

    I think Ana genuinely sees her father as "the real deal". He is a hunter. THE hunter. In her eyes, anyway. Everyone else pretended, even her mother who was more worried about regaining political power among the elite circles.

    And I donīt think she WANTS to be killed; she thinks her father is going to kill her because she is not good enough for him, but accepts it because he is like a god for her.
    Yeah. I just always theorize that the time will come when she wants to be like him too much. Way it basically goes is that Spidey (or in this case, Kaine) "kidnaps" her from the middle of a ritual that would have turned her immortal like her father, and Sergei tries to go and rescue her just so he can kill her. And Ana the whole time is trying to put herself in his line of fire, complicating matters.

    I just think it'd be cute in their freaky little way.
