F.A.O. Flex is the most depressing toy store in the world.

The Craft Beer 'n' Dylan section does tend to overwhelm.

While I'm glad he doesn't carry Mike Love, the shelf after shelf of Al Jardine action figures seems excessive.

I hate this thread. It's worse than waiting for Kaleb to finish a single fucking song for CtC 2013.

AL JARDINE IS A SAINT

Also, I knew 4-6 and part of 11 (I've never heard anyone call themselves a "Coloradical" before). Colorado is neat!

Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

The size of the airport stood out for me. I knew it was huge, but twice that of Manhattan took me aback.

When I was growing up in Denver, we didn't need no stinking twice the size of Manhattan airport. We had teeny, old, crash at any moment from the chinook winds Stapelton and we were fine! Stupid millennials.

The Denver Airport was the first place I ever saw motion sensor sinks and toilets. God bless the 90's.

I'm willing to sign on to idea that that's about the high point of the decade.
