BBQs are pretty much the best. Eggplant, zucchini, Portobello mushrooms, hot dogs, steak and ribs are the items that my friends and I typically BBQ. But every once in a while we get lazy and just BBQ steak...or just hot dogs. We've come to refer to these sparse BBQs as "hard times" BBQs. The "hard times" meme quickly dispersed and we use it in a broad variety of situations.
For example...here's a "hard times" milestone for pragmatarianism. It's the first blog entry that somebody besides me has dedicated to the concept. What makes it a "hard times" milestone is that the blog entry is a criticism of pragmatarianism. heh.
Opportunity Cost - The Barefoot Bum
As criticisms go it's not bad. It's definitely worth taking a look at if you're vaguely interested in the possibility of applying market principles to government organizations.
[Update] Hmmm...guess I should have realized that The Great Leap Forward is a touchy subject for revolutionary communists.
