Re: Game of Thrones - 4/13/14

I didn't understand the concept of the live birds in the wedding cake. So Joffrey was stuffing his face with bird poop, right?

What did they think was going to happen?

Re: She Wrote A Check...Get Over It

Re: Colonoscopy (TMI)

Could you have had those two unmedicated births if you'd had to lay stone still on your side?

That's not an issue with colonoscopy.

Re: Anyone attend a rally today?

This board does seem serious. Although I (and we) do find some humor, perhaps gallows humor, in the foibles of our Christian fellow citizens. Don't you? Have you visited HURL lately? About as funny as a rubber crutch for the most [more]

Re: Anyone attend a rally today?

Yeah, a real knee-slapper. You should write a book. A second Ambrose Bierce you are. Or maybe not.

Well, sorry. No one bats a thousand.

But you know, now that you bring it up, I think probably the biggest change in this board [more]

Has it occurred to you that your smug, condescending sarcasm might be offensive, and unbecoming to someone of your stature and obvious intellect?

Alchook, this is a comment that's been long on my mind. I finally found your post again so now I can respond to this :)

Re: The Americans 032614

I'm confident she could beat the snot out of me and most guys (and gals) I know.

Me as well. But I don't know about a Mossad agent and her martial arts instructor from the KGB. That seems far fetched. And isn't the suspected killer of [more]

Re: The Americans 032614

My one big issue with the show is the female KGB agent who routinely beats the snot out of men. I think later this season she has a showdown with a Navy Seal or something?

That seems more like what you find in a graphic novel than reality.

Re: $15/hr Minimum Wage Makes All Richer

Actually, Walmart's net income last year was about $17B, not $27B.

Or a bit less than $8K per employee.

(By comparison, I think Apple makes a bit more than $400K per employee.)

Re: Induction range

I cut up meat and sliced, chopped, and minced vegetables so much faster with them, and it was easier.

I'd hazard a guess that anyone with yellow star and blue crown has enough free time to cut stuff up using generic utensils.

Re: Induction range

James Beard famously cooked on electric.

And I agree that gas has a lot to offer. I prefer it. And I'm sure most professionals do as well. Then again, they're cooking for restaurants full of people and have to get food out in a hurry. [more]

Re: Induction range

I think when I see famous chefs cook on something other than gas I will begin to think about that something.

Ever hear of James Beard?

Re: Induction range

For me, that is gas cooking for the instant response whether I'm turning the heat up or down.

I prefer that as well.
