Re: What are you reading right now?

Greensboro... Greensboro... I know someone from there... I barely survived a plane landing in Greensboro back in 2000. After the screaming died down, the captain came on the speakers and said "I'd like to thank you for flying United, and we sure are sorry about that landing there but the plane...

Re: What are you reading right now?

For work / study purposes I am reading"The Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome and Related Neurologic Disorders Due to Alcoholism and Malnutrition" by M. Victor, R. D. Adams and G. H. Collins. It is marginally less traumatic than nailing your own testicles to a grand piano, then pushing said piano...

Re: Cookbook, Anyone?

Cookbook? Forget it - you're aiming too low! In the UK, we have a bit of a backlash against fast food and the obesity epidemic, and there are lots of cookery programmes about healthy home-cooked food, some of which ( Jamie's school dinners ) have a distinctly political agenda. They are getting good ...

Re: What foods should never go together

Toothpaste and beer. I'll concede that neither of these is a member of one of the major food groups, but the resulting assault on your tastebuds is truly quite grotesque. Best avoided.

Re: Hot Sauce and Chili Pepper Heads thread

I am a bit of a chili pepper enthusiast. I use green Tabasco (made with jalapenos) on lesser foods like poached eggs; I use red Tabasco (habaneros) in more acceptable high-carbohydrate foods like soup or paella; but in anything sacred like spaghetti alla arrabiata, I use chili peppers themselves. A ...

I don't want to start some sort of theological schism here (I'm thinking specifically about transubstantiation), but aldehyde dehydrogenase deficiency is an inherited genetic thang.

Re: what happens HERE when a pastafarian dies?

I would suggest that, after whatever organs are viable for transplant, you should leave your body to science. Find out where your local teaching hospital / medical school is and contact them. They always need more cadavers than they can get. If it became the norm for Pastafarians to leave their bodi...
