Bialik's physical appearance is so altered / made up / costumed for that show, she attracts few drive-by street encounters in everyday life. You'd have to be really focused on both her and the show...

But if you drive be sure to stop at the Mars Cheese Castle in Kenosha, WI or Ehlenbach's...

Some of these went bust (Braniff, Pan Am, Eastern) and some were merged up (TWA, PeopleExpress, Frontier, Continental). ValuJet did neither, just changed its name to AirTran.

Look again. The top bottle shown is 187ml, the second 350ml, the bottom two are 750ml. It is right there in the same size type as the product name.

Bit hyperbolic, don't you think? I am no defender of UA but even I do not think they wake up in the morning planning to torment their customers. It just turns out that way sometimes.
