What 22-26 year old men talk about...

Follow up to my work vent of yesterday.

Today at work, the discussion all around me regarding lunch commenced at 10:15am, and lasted intermittently until 12:15pm, when a large group of young men left for lunch. Around 1pm, discussion of what was eaten at said lunch commenced, and lasted intermittently amongst a great deal of sunflower seed chewing, until about 2:30.

I felt like an anthropologist plopped down in an exotic land today!
