Are these the normal size tortillas or the smaller version? My local uses the smaller ones (2/taco) and even though I'm not a big eater I have no trouble eating two.

A "taco" isn't really a unit of measurement. How many you eat depends on how big they are. I usually get three from my favorite place; they're only about three or four bites' worth of food each.

I have no idea how long the average tacos are. I’ve never measured them. They are usually about the length and width of a flaccid cock, aren’t they?

Around here tortillas come in three sizes. The large flour ones are for burritos, the mid size, maybe 6 inches in diameter are for tacos in some establishments but the more traditional places use the smallest which is maybe 3 inches in diameter. The picture in your post looks like the small one, yes?

Edit, the 6 inchers are the ones people fry to make crunchy shells whereas I've never seen that done with the small ones.

A flaccid cock is not a unit of measure. :D

Yep, that's about right, maybe a little bigger. They make them by hand to order at the place I like, so while they're uniform, I'm not sure if they conform to any kind of codified dimensions.

And they're so good that every other taco in town tastes like roasted garbage.

"arepa" (the Colombian/Venezuelan version of a thick tortilla) is also slang for vagina.
Guess what "chorizo" is slang for?

Non-sweetened for me. I can’t stand the sweetened version, it’s cloyingly sweet.

If they are street taco sized I can eat three to five. If they are regular corn tortilla sized I can do two to three. If they are al mano the tortilla is thicker so I can just manage two. If they are the larger flauta sized ones or taco bell style crispy fried shells, I can't eat them on the grounds that I am from San Diego and we have laws against that sort of thing.

I think I had four tacos in Houston for lunch. That seemed like a nice amount.

After a few drinks I could easily eat a few more.

At any given time I could JUST EAT any number of fried meats: (CF) steak, pork chop, chicken ...

But I won’t
