wow. Had never cooked with eggplant before, was one of those fruits that I just stayed away from. Well, wife set out a recipe for ratatouille and some veggies when she headed off to work.

I must say, it is pretty damn good! Made a few changes along the way, nothing major, but am very happy with it.

If you liked that, try eggplant parmigiana, food from the gods.

Some people recommend salting and rinsing to reduce bitterness, but I have never had that issue.
Plus who needs more salt in todays processed food diet.

Yea I have had eggplant in many forms prepared for me at a sit down joint, egg parm is one of my favorites. I also have enjoyed it with a steak on the grill (not my own) with just oil. Very tasty. I made 2 batches, and went different routes with each. Damn good.

I've been going through Mr Robot and its hard to believe its a USA show, the home of bland light comedy. Burn Notice, White Collar, The Glades, etc all felt like they were produced for retirement age white dudes. I'm nearly done the first season of Mr Robot and other than the OMG COMPUTAR handwaves and pointless *nix terminal commands, its pretty good.

Really? No love for Burn Notice or White Collar?

Food actually DOES NOT taste better with salt.

This is the dumbest thing I've ever read. The day I eat a potato without salt is the day I chop my dick off and braise it for a savory bolognese.

*shakes head

But you aren't eating the tater cause you like it, you are eating it bc you like the salt.....

Food actually DOES NOT taste better with salt. Those who think so are addicted to salt.

lol you just dont know how sodium affects the nervous system

btw - its necessary for life

duh, but without adding ANY SALT in ANY of your food, you naturally get way more than what your body needs daily. Salt is a silent killer, and should not be on any tables in any establishment. I cringe every time I see people add salt at the table.

So I assume this "Force Friday" is a marketing ploy? Or have I been missing it all these years?

I use a Dynaflex powerball for wrist strengthening

http://www.amazon.com/Dynaflex-Pro-Gyro-Exerciser/dp/B004RZIBZU

Been thinking about getting a foot switch for a long time but they all seem to be designed around needing to use too much force to use, I want something like a capacitance switch on something thin.


Interesting. Might have to check those out. I was looking into the standard flex grip stuff, but watching some videos and people that use them seem to be pretty impressed. I think I will need a flex one as well though, need finger and grip workout.

The other thing I backed recently was GRIP. Unfortunately, it got canceled, but it looks like it will get on Steam Early Access.

I backed that too and I was also bummed that it didn't meet the campaign goals. But I will definitely back it on Steam.

OMG! Grip is Rollcage 1 and 2!? Awesome games. I'm on it.

(hmm, 650k seems pretty lofty for that game though)

That Humble Bundle is sick!

11 games for 10 bucks. Would be cool if a bunch of people got it, would love to play Vegas and Vegas 2 co-op. Two awesome games with friends.

Do they call us thieves? I've never seen that.

Do you pay $65 CAD for an AAA game when the CAD is strong and $65 when it's weak? If so, then you're not the one being affected by the currency's strength.

No. Regular price is $60 for a AAA game. Dollar has been slipping in the last year, so yes the prices have adjusted. I wouldn't call this a AAA game though. There is no consistency in pricing. MGS is $75. Blops3 is $80. That's not really what I was pointing out though. I was pointing out that it was $60 in a region where the dollar is weaker, while being more expensive in a region the dollar is stronger. It doesn't make logical sense.

And yes they call people thieves for using third party sites to get cheaper games. Several companies have taken away games from customers that purchased on sites like G2A claiming they weren't legit keys. Or how about CDPR initially squabbling with GMG over selling Witcher 2 claiming they weren't selling valid keys.

I don't care though. I haven't lost a game I purchased on G2A yet (only a few) and I always pay the insurance. $2 for Watch Dogs (that I haven't played yet), can't beat that.

Unless prices have gone up globally then yes, you're bearing the brunt it. The Australia pricing doesn't seems to make sense at all. I don't begrudge them getting a cheap game for once but that's not the point

I think that publishers get an unfair reputation with some of those keys and AFAIK they have never said anything like that people using these sites are thieves. I don't know the ins-and-outs of all of these controversies but in the case of Far Cry 4 keys from G2A, those keys were bought using stolen credit cards. People who bought the keys weren't called thieves, they were treated as what they were: people who bought illegitimate produce. The victims of the crime shouldn't have had to give people who took a risk to save a few bucks a free copy of their product. Really, if you buy from a site that offers insurance to guard against what they're listing being a scam, you should really expect that sometimes you're going to buy into a scam.

My problem with that stance is that as a consumer, you are telling me that I shouldn't shop at the cheapest stores. G2A has region locked games, you have to be careful what you buy. SOMEONE bought the key, and are now reselling. Leave it alone, it is a free market.

I can get everything cheaper at Amazon - should I not buy my things from there? Am I going to be told where I can buy stuff now?

Mad Max is listed at $59.99 USD on steam for me (AU). Is it the same price for the US?

$59.99 USD here in USA.

Greenman Gaming is 40% off through today.

CDKeys is 19.99 (works on Steam).


Get it as cheap as you can. DO NOT PAY FULL PRICE.

Annnnd, I broke down and bought it after watching some streaming. $18.99, couldn't beat that with a stick.

I would be happier had I paid that price....I paid $38 and feel I over payed. Although it does fall under my Value=$/Hours, it just doesn't GRAB me like I had expected it to....

It's not funny if you're 6'3 and every time you go to the damn grocery store you're the person getting shit off the top shelf for the "vertically challenged" people.
I'm going to start asking them to get stuff off the bottom shelf for me cause I'm too tall.

In your defense, it's really hard on the back for tall people to bend over that far. Also, due to the distance from heart to brain in tall people, you are at risk for "red-out" when bending over when you get older. Your heart isn't strong enough to push the blood out of the brain when the head is lower than the heart, and you can get dizzy and pass out. So, ask away!

As someone who has lived with back problems their whole life. Work smarter not harder. Squats are your best friend.

Anything with Randy Moss is going to be in bad taste. Guy is a loser, i can't believe they have him on TV for football. He can't even put together a list of words that could be considered a sentence, let alone understand him. His knowledge of football is no great than that of a fan. (and isn't the last scenario racist?)
