Yes, I know what a gripping premise that is, but bear with me. While waiting on a friend and approaching four or five hours staring at the same wall, I recall nodding in recognition for the 200th time to the patrolling cop, who, I should add, had clearly identified me as a malingerer and up to no good by his 10th pass. Hoping to break the ice, I recall idly querying, “Excuse me, Sir, what exactly is a Chicago dog?” To this day, I’ve n...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The legislature’s Public Safety and Security Committee is considering the bill, which would prevent theaters from showing a film or preview that exceeded 85 decibels. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recommends noise should be kept below 85 decibels for workers for eight hours to minimize hear...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Shishito peppers, sliders and what’s that — some formerly inedible green thing made lovable with bacon — gotcha, we have a small plate tapas-inspired restaurant on our hands, case closed. Indeed, it’s not much of a further stretch to infer the contents of a menu simply by glancing around the general surroundings. Should you spy an array of suitably trendy Edison lightbulbs dangling in the distance, you can ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

From the sneaky dimple in your peanut butter jar eliminating precious ounces to the subtly smaller reworked contours of your soap bar, large brands are forever employing sleight of hand to cajole you into happily accepting higher prices. The reason for such mental trickery is that price is such an emotive, not to mention personal, topic. We all know someone who blew an unfathomable wedge on something seemingly preposterous.
