Re: Thanksgiving: the most delicious time of the year

Serious eats method- boil, smash into pucks, pan fry in flavorful fat, bit of lemon and herbs. Lots of salt. Lemon juice or lemon zest? Am just starting to do potato work beyond 'bake' and 'mash' so I'm inexperienced on that front. Edit: I'm not familiar with using acid with potatoes. Edit my Edit:...

Re: Capitalism: It works, bitches

At most restaurants it's just a slight variation on naan. Have been to one place where it was really quite different and very good but it was in the '90s in South Carolina, so I haven't been there in 20 years and it's gone now and it could've been something other than roti.

Re: Food

(Also, while the chicken was nice, the pork ramen is just so much better...) Getting back to the meat (har, har) of this tangent, tonkotsu is a sublime dish. I've only had it prepared professionally once but it was 1000 times better than anything I could do in my kitchen. It's also 'Western' enough...

Maybe, bitches?

Wunderground just served up an ad for the Rotimatic. A breadmaker/Easybake oven for making roti right in your own home. Just USD 999 for one or two units.

Re: Our Friends, The House of Saud

One of the many, many problems with both the American Empire and the war on terriers is having to appease guys like Erdogan so they'll play nice. Of course, Trump would do it anyway because he cartoon hearts strongman dictators. Don't support the War on Terriers https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...

You may be right about Beto. Even so, Cruz is a shit sandwich.
Yeah, that puts a thumb on the scale in Beto's favor where there are two thumbs in Cruz's favor, so yeah, one shouldn't read too much into that. If Beto'd managed that showing against Cornyn, it'd be a different calculus, to be sure.

(I'd say the same thing about Gillum: he's going to lose Florida by half a point and that's going to be positive and impressive). Florida isn't Texas. Losing by a half a point to a shitty Red in Florida is like losing to a shitty Red by ten points in Texas. Close second against incredible odds is o...

Re: Calling 2020 for Entropy

Beto failed in exactly the way Hillary failed: Epically to a truly revolting opponent. That's the dumbest analysis Hillary ran a lackluster campaign, ignoring fundamentals, had no charisma, and lost to an eminently beatable candidate in a country that has a pretty even balance of Team Reds and Team...

And then Fawkes showed up to help because Adams was a faithful Gryffindor, probably?

Ours was olive and khaki shag. Literally the least military thing in those colors ever. And that includes a dirty martini spilled on a pair of Dockers.

There was a time when 'wall to wall carpeting' was considered a feature, and some people just don't ever want their feet to touch anything hard.

To the point that some psychotic fuckers put installed carpeting in fucking bathrooms.
