Speaking of the Austro-Hungarian empire, there's a delicious Austrian dish made from mashed bacon and bacon fat, aged in the cellar for 3-4 weeks, then eaten spread on bread like peanut butter. Sort of an open-faced cholesterol sandwich. Yeah, that sounds par for the course. Put a dollop of sour cream on top and serve it between dark bread, and I'd wager you'd have a representation of 90% of the cuisine. Superman - how could I forget? Still maybe the best of all comic book movies. I would have completely agreed with you up until 3 weeks ago. Christopher Reeve was the de facto comic representation, until Iron Man came long. I thought it was that fitting.
