Re: The Omnivore's 100

5. Crocodile * 66. Frogs’ legs 86. Hare * 100. Snake These are all "not chicken". I feel like either frogs' legs or snake sufficiently represents the group. Rabbit is near indistinguishable from chicken. Alligator I've only seen either deep fried or stewed. I like frogs' legs for distinctive flavor ...

Re: The Omnivore's 100

I do the cigar maybe once every seven years. I'll just say that one night with a cigar and snifter of B&B stands out as one of my top ten.

Re: the list of those things which are not food

ya know what's not food? the rice i just burned in my pan because i was toasting it and washing dishes at the same time like a fucking clown. 2nd time in the last six months. I don't toast my rice anymore. Partly because burning is a real danger that ruins the rice and is a pain in the ass to clean...

There was once a proposal for a midtown airport, that would be built on top of existing buildings. Not on top of their demolished remains, but literally on top of them. https://untappedcities.com/2013/06/26/the-new-york-city-that-never-was-midtowns-dream-rooftop-airport/ It was tried back in Septem...

Those and the ones at Chipotle.
I don't have a Chipotle so I don't know about that. I just think of refried beans like I do mashed potatoes; they can be superb if prepared at the master level, but most often they are just there. Finding them "gross" is more shits than I have to give for them.

Re: The Omnivore's 100

I hate beans. There are a few items on the list I’ve never had just because I know I won’t like them based on ingredients. I have seething contempt for "I refuse to try this dish because I already know I won't like it". Your tastes can change. Some things are acquired tastes. Every five years or so...

Can't say that doesn't happen but man there are a lot of consequences to doing something like that and getting caught. Even having a plan summary materially different from full plan description / plan document is a big no no. Like I said, this was like twenty years ago, but since he clued me in, I ...

You've never eaten a Hostess Fruit Pie? Weren't you born and raised in America? How is that possible?

Since you also claim to have never eaten a McCombo meal, you must be trolling.

"I like sushi" also means very little. In most local cases it means "I like mayo based sauces on fried shrimp rolls".

One thing I would add to my list: 11. Have Thai food that isn't pad thai, Japanese that isn't sushi, etc. Sometimes the popular dishes from a cuisine are genuinely great ones, but a lot of times, it's just the most accessible one or something that some pioneer popularized.

It's a dumpster fire of a movie for other reasons as well. None of it makes any sense or has any consistency. Even if you just want to watch mindless splosions, you'd be better off with Michael Bay.

Re: Idiocracy is here

I wonder what the political orientation of the makers is. I could believe they are true believers or cynical manipulators about equally. I assume they're Chinese capitalists. So it's the fault of Richard Nixon, Deng Xiaoping, and the WTO? Yeah. And the libertarians of course. Mostly the libertarians.

Back in the last millennium I knew a guy that worked in our HR dept. He told me that coverage was denied based on how readily an employee could be replaced.
