  • 50 BEST MAGAZINES (as per the Chicago Tribune)

    Cook's Illustrated.

    Worst ever. I was apalled. These people are astonishingly pretentious, and the seem to HATE FOOD. The whole magazine was designed around selling their advertiser's products -- obviously so, but not candidly so. (Their comparison of rotissseries concluded that they are are generally worthless and silly, you need a "V-rack" instead.) The whole magazine was insulting. Recipe write-ups, too. Rosemary and Garlic Roasted Chicken, by a woman who thinks rosemary is insipid and garlic is rank. She experimented with several ways to cook it, and decided that the best way was with a V-rack.

    "while he bludgeoned the poor fellow."

    ...who was only there to...

    "...Moore, who suffered a fractured skull, admitted that he and two friends were in the neighborhood trying to steal a car ..."

    "..."Fat Nick," hurled the "n-word" during the attack and shouted, "We'll show you not to come and rob white boys."..."

    What a hater.

  • Mega-producers tip scales as organics go mainstream

    Organic and non-organic. Pretty stark contrast.

    Those pictures are a pretty clear illustration. For one thing, groups of organic vegetables have rounded edges and cast a drop-shadow. I also see that organic vegetable don't come with garlic or ginger. The only good thing I can say about these organic veggies is that they aren't already cut open, like inorganic canteloupe and red cabbage.

    LA needs more viking kitties.

    More cats, for sure! I could say a lot about this, but let me just emphasize that large cat populations really do lead to a low flea population.

    Fleas are the main 'transmission vector' for boubonic plague, and a several other bad afflictions. The big base population of fleas live on rats, mice, moles, squirrels, et cetera. Vermin. Cats despise vermin in love to destroy them. Waterbugs, moths, anything. They sometimes get a lizard or some kind of bird or nice butterfly, but the big trend is to kill vermin.

    Most cats kill any fleas that get on them, provided the base flea population is reasonably low, as it will be without vermin around to nourish them.

    Any outside cat, especially one who is a prolific mouser, should be treated regularly for worms. A small price to pay.

    Many are ignoring the problem of forged documents. I was an employer in California until 12 years ago. I was virtually certain I had illegals on my payroll, but they had "green cards

    You're right. Thsy get their fake papers on the way up here. It wouldn't be practical: the only way to confidently avoid hiring illegals would be to avoid hiring hispanics, and that will get employers sued for racism.

    So.....Michelangelo was a fag. I did not know that.

    Fags say everyone famous was a fag. Jesus, Alexander, Michelangelo, all the Greeks.... "All your heroes are belong to us fags!"

    Yes, he has liitle fast-food BBQ restaurants all over the place. But, his sauce is no longer sold in grocery stores.

    one very famous sauce is not mentioned.

    I've mentioned him before :), along with a few others.

    And this timely thread gives me occasion to mention another:

    Farm Boy's in Chapin, SC. They are only open(for now) Thursday through Saturday(I think).

    I absolutely must give this place props for the best mustard BBQ I have had in many years. The best, in fact, that I have ever gotten from a restaurant.

    Pros: Mustard AND vinegar-pepper styles. They also have both creamy and pickle slaw(marinated, no mayo). Assorted BBQ-appropriate sides. Desserts. All you can eat for about $8, tea included.

    Cons: the hush-puppies are weak. Also, I'm told that sometimes they get a little happy with the pepper in the vinegar-pepper stuff, though I'm focused on the mustard-based, which is definitely top shelf.

    I'm not sure if the yankee waitress is a pro or a con. Inappropriate, but I like her(I know her from when she worked at Hardee's), and there's something positive about the cross-cultural thing going on there.

    I haven't been on a Thursday, but I understand that Thursday is pork chop day,and that the chops are very good.

    I saw, by the Chapin exit from I-26, that a sizeable commercial building under construction has a sign that says "Future home of Farm Boy's," and more power to them. I hope they expand their hours when they get out of the little hole-in-the-wall they're in now.

    If you're in the area, try it. If not, it's worth the drive for a BBQ afficanado. Honestly, what I had was way better than even Mourice's. If they sold that stuff in the store, they'd make a mint, worldwide. "Highly recommeded!"

    Anudder INFP here (89 50 12 33). Makes me sound like something of a liberal, which, in my heart, I probably am.

    Are you gay? INTP is the main gay personality type, and many gays are liberals.

    It's okay, you can tell us! We wont judge you or tell anyone. We're just curious.

    A fifteen year old goes to her mother and says "I'm a lesbian and the mother says "I'm so glad".

    Something wierd there. Lesbianism as some kind of way for a homely woman to be proud of herself. Sour grapes as some kind of pseudo-therapeutic identity concept. Not healthy.

    Your "some facts" link (which, incidentally has the word 'rainbow' in the url) is a typical pseudointellectual faux analysis.

    From your link:

    Cameron's claims hinge on the fallacious assumption that all male-male molestations are committed by homosexuals.
    Male-male molestations are intrinsically homosexual. To suggest otherwise is absurdly dishonest -- unless, maybe, being married proves heterosexuality despite homosexual activity. Silliness, and the gay community's monolithic parroting of such mind-bending nonsense is just another illustration of the fact that the state of being overtly gay involves an element of proactive antisocial hostility.

    For one thing, most "strats" that you see big names playing bear only a superficial resemblance to the kind of thing you buy off the shelf. Inside, everything is usually customized.

    For another thing, for "soulful" of "bluesey," the best sound you will get live is one click down from the neck position on the pickup switch. In that position, you are playing the neck and center pickups together. The way strats are wired, in that position, the pickups are connected in what's called "pseudo-humbucking mode." That's right, your favorite live sound on a strat comes from a spread-out humbucker! Single-coils are noisy.

    This from a guy who has only ever owned strats or strat-style guitars. Strat body-style and neck are good(all I've ever owned), but they benefit alot from modification.

    All very good, to be sure. But, failure is a very big impediment to happiness, so it sounds like the chicken vs the egg. Correllation vs. causation, too, maybe.

    Perhaps, they find people with all-in-all easy lives, who say "I've always been a happy person." Then they find some people with rough lives, who say, "I've never really been happy, even when I was a kid." What they fail to consider is that the happy person was raised rich and always had a parachute, while the sad person came from the ghetto or trailer park, and never even made it to the break-even point in life.

    Nevertheless, a cultivated awareness of the Good and affinity to it are my own primary "stress management tools," and they seem to have been very beneficial for me lately, so I'll agree that positive thinking is generally good for you.
