Re: Food

General rule of freezing units of things. Freeze them without letting them touch during the process. Use a sheet or a plate or something, or use wax paper between stacks of things. After frozen you can store in bag while touching. Shitty frozen shrimp - one big lump o shrimp. Good frozen shrimp - e...

Re: Food

Does anyone have any experience with vacuum sealing baked goods, specifically cookies? Currently the cookies I make only last a week before they start getting hard and stale even when kept in a sealed Tupperware bin. So this means I need to make a batch every week. Ideally I would like to make a ba...

Baby Driver is a really good movie, but not for what usually makes a movie good. The plot and story goes completely off the rails and blows up. But the look and sound of the thing is astonishing the first time you experience it.

I think that their token (or cryptocurrency) is an ERC20 Ethereum token. i.e. separate cryptocurrency that is compliant with ethereum's protocols and wallets, so that it can be used on the ethereum blockchain.

Re: Observations of the Random sort

Mountain House and Backpacker's Pantry are both surprisingly good. Not gourmet cuisine by a long shot, but for an emergency/hiking hot meal by just adding water, they are a long way from the freeze-dried foods of 10 or 20 years ago. Well, they could be pretty similar to the better freeze-dried food...
