Is it true Olive Garden chefs get flown to Italy and taught to cook certain dishes?
Yes and no. Olive Garden has a deal with a small boutique hotel owned by a wine company in Tuscany.
They send their head chefs and general managers there for a week at a time during the off season, when tourist traffic is low.
They spend one afternoon with the hotel chef, watching her cook and posing for photo ops. The rest of the time they sight-see, sample wine and talk about numbers.
It's basically a corporate retreat. The recipes for all of their food come from a company generated cook book and are as authentically Tuscan as Chef Boyardee.
>source: numerous articles plus a friend of mine used to be chef of the OG in Rapid City, SD.
Given how "Italian" the food there is, I'm gonna say no.
n a somewhat related note, for the workers on Kia's automotive assembly lines, Kia actually does send all their workers to South Korea for a bit to teach them manufacturing techniques. Pic related. The Kia Optima race cars for the Pirelli World Challenge series have to come off the same assembly line as production cars according to race regulations.
The last time I was back I had just missed a guy who stabbed and wounded six people outside a bar downtown before the crowd managed to subdue him.
When my buddy told me about it, the first thing I said was "Damn, that guy should give lessons"
HAHHAHA, no. Gun ownership in America is at an all time low. Gun grabbers might say otherwise but a single person owning 50 guns doesn't mean jack shit when you can only fire 1 or 2 at the same time.
>Gun ownership in America is at an all time low.
It is quite the opposite. Gun ownership and gun purchases are growing exponentially each month, according to the FBI's NICS statistics.
You two lunk heads are the ones spouting "facts." Cite that shit or shut the fuck up. I don't pull numbers out of my ass like you. I use the FBI Uniform Crime Statistics, BATFE Firearm Commerce Reports, the Bureau of Justice statistics, the CDC, etc.
You won't find me quoting the fucking Brady Campaign or some other bias organization.
Put up or shut up, you anti-civil rights lap dog.
He's a leftist. "Typing", "communicating", and "making things up" are all synonymous, but they'll never admit they're making things up because then it would involve using their underdeveloped-amygdala-having brains. Plus, looking up actual real-life statistics hurts their little fee-fees.
>S&W and a ruger
What kind? The fucking fudd guns your dad gave you?
>I got a Ford diesel
I love when people call others retarded or stupid or correcting others but are they themselves the ones saying/doing something retarded or stupid or in need of correction.
Such is the case with >>7055623
>more CCW holders now than ever before, but most Americans do not have CCW permits
There are plenty of states that do not require permits.
>only 30% of Americans own guns
Dunno. Probably not too many. It's tough to tell though, someone who's good at carrying concealed would never let on that they were armed. Maybe 5% total carry legally every day. Probably another 1-2% carry illegally.
As for just owning a gun, thats much harder to figure out. There's no registry, so the only way to get any data is with surveys. And you can't really trust surveys because a great deal of people will lie about gun ownership. Would you really tell some stranger on the phone that you own guns? Which are both expensive and highly desirable for criminals. A "gun ownership survey" seems like a pretty good scam to find out which houses to rob.
There are four states that don't require a permit or license for concealed carry, I wouldn't call that plenty.
As for citations on 30% gun ownership:
