I was out in Aurora last weekend. They're building a new Subway. But I didn't stop to look because I'd already had lunch.

Aaron, I am sure Houston is chock full of Subways.

$5 = footlong

1 mile subway (5280 ft) = $26,400


I told you it wasn't $1 billion per mile!

It's kinda funny that this same conversation happened last May on the development forum. And now I really want a sandwich after the $5 footlong comment...

All of this talk about subway is making me hungry. I'm going to eat some hot chili.

How the hell can discussions involving horrible sandwiches make one hungry? Subway? Yuck! At least give me a Quizno's, perhaps a Potbelly? Schlotszky's? Anything but that horrible SUBWAY!

Can we break out the Subway discussion into it's own topic? It's really detracting from the subway discussion.

That is an epic cake! Too bad it's probably mostly fondant.

No reason to close it. Just don't respond to it if you want it to drop down the list. It will disappear and all will be well.

How long would we have to keep this thread open for it to meet the minimum criteria for Sticky-ification?

I had Quiznos for lunch. It's Denver-based, right? That makes every bite I take a development. Not helping the Subway, though.

Unless we do a PPP and they build/sponsor a station.
