The difference between burritos, chimichangas, and enchiladas

I love Mexican food, but I'm embarrassed to admit that I always get confused between burritos, wet burritos, chimichangas, and enchiladas. Here are the descriptions, with the differences in bold and pictures following each description.

burrito
A flour tortilla wrapped around a filling (meat, beans, vegetables, etc)


wet burrito
A burrito that's covered in red chili sauce and cheese. Because of the sauce covering, it looks like an enchilada, but it's made with a flour tortilla, whereas the enchilada is made with a corn tortilla.


chimichanga
A burrito that's deep-fried. Sometimes covered with cheese or another topping.


enchilada
A corn tortilla wrapped around a filling, covered with chili pepper sauce

A much-needed post to assist what for many is a frequent question with many answers readily given by the typical uninformed cretins who are convinced their uneducated opinion is the definitive answer freely given and defended even when confronted with facts.

Basically, the all-too-typical well-indoctrinated citizen-sheep of the USA taught is the indoctrination system also known as USA educational systems intended to brainwash the masses of commoner's vile spawn.

Unlike the typical spewing of brain-dead citizen-sheep this excellent post was obviously created by a writer with actual knowledge about the subject matter and created a post that includes some well-taken pictures that, maybe unintentionally, create an intense lustful desire to partake of the vittles-types shown.

Your response is indicative of someone with serious issues. Get off the computer and check yourself into a hospital before it's to late.

@Scott - please go to other countries and see how they view the typical US citizen. I'm sure they are also "well-indoctrinated" by the media and other sources that we have here.
In fact, please go - and don't come back. It's obvious you are unhappy with the USA. Perhaps another country would suit you better.

My LASIK laser eye surgery experience

Yesterday was a turning point in my life; I had laser eye surgery (LASIK)! Here's a brief summary of my experience.

When I was 16, I barely passed the eye exam at the DMV, so they told me I had to see my eye doctor. Being a self-conscious geek, I opted for contacts over the stereotypical glasses. Although they were fine for most of the day, my contacts always dried out around 8 or 9 PM. My friends will tell you they got sick of my complaints that "my eyes feel like corks!" and "these contacts feel like sandpaper!"

Over the years, I've tried more than 10 different types of contacts, including extended wear, overnight wear, and high-moisture contacts. For a while, I even had contacts with bright blue artificial irises to cover my natural grayish ones. I got a lot of compliments, but they didn't help with the dryness.

I decided to put an end to the suffering this year. LASIK isn't cheap; reputable surgeons charge about $2000 per eye. It hurt to max out my…
