I was a bit surprised Witten made it into the game. Lacerated spleen? Just rub some dirt on it!

Yeah, he's a pretty tough dude. OTOH, he had a terrible game with drops and penalties, so he seemed like a liability out there.

Sorry, saw that on a Facebook update and didn't engage brain before posting it.

No need for any driving tests, just take away their licenses at 75. Easy, cheap and by the time I get there I'll be happy to not be driving anymore.

It will free up traffic for those who can actually drive (and save some lives).

They should take the 100 year old who did this out back and shoot him.

Fatal accidents per 1000 drivers (by age) from 2009 (National Safety Council).

Any guesses what it shows?

19-under: 38
20-24: 36
25-34: 24
35-44: 20
45-54: 20
55-64: 18
65-74: 18
75-over: 28

Yes there's a jump for the elderly, which makes them slightly worse than 25-34 year olds. However, you'd make the roads *far* safer by banning drivers under 25 than those over 75. Not to mention how many more of them there are in total.

Just sayin'...

Agree with everything on this list except for Vanilla Sky...

Yeah, I like that one too.

I also did not understand how Kill Bill Vol 2 ended up on that list.

Very nice results, although keeping it clean and the rust off it is a job. But it's worth it.

Sounds like it may not be properly seasoned. My Lodge pans are very low maintenance.

You can Google about seasoning, but it basically is just cleaning the pan really well, oiling it, and baking it at about 400 for an hour or more.

They still sell unenameled cast iron pans. It's all I cook in, except for the occasional stainless steel pot. If properly cared for, they really do last a lifetime or longer.

I am a huge fan of Lodge pans, and own three of them. I was referring to my belief that Le Creuset no longer makes plain cast iron anymore... even the ones with black cooking surfaces are enameled.

Wow the day you ban me for having a different view than others is the day you first broke a bone? What about that? Well unlike most here I hope you feel better. With that said, people on here constantly cuss, say rude comments, etc...and I never see them get banned. A matter of fact, they are still going strong. However, let a christian say his view and he gets banned. Some would call that being a bigot...Go look up the word.

You got a last warning the last time you topped off an obit with one of your little bad-taste Westboro baptisms. You may not have believed me then, but I bet you're a believer now.

And Karma? You're branching out into Indian religions now too?

My patience with your pursuing your political and religious agendas here at the expense of topicality and good taste is at a breaking point.

Continuing with this going forward will earn you a ban. So will any attempt at using this warning as a way of launching a discussion about said agendas and/or the fairness of this.

Steak spices go very well with BBQ veggies as long as you don't overdue it.

Also, have you ever tried to BBQ Salmon on a plank? I tried it but I don't think I let the plank soak long enough as it caught fire and ruined the Salmon.

...smelled nice though.

I have a few planks to do this with, but haven't tried it yet. Definitely plan on soaking them well when I do, though, so I hope I don't repeat your fire experience.

Grill up some veg. Green onion, endive, peppers, etc. Good for what ails ye!

I don't talk so much about the greens, but we always grill some. Today, in fact, MrsBlue and I had a bit of a fight, because I was astounded at the potential waste represented by her spending $35.00 on a bag of veggies at the farm stand, as that's too much for the two of us to consume before some of it goes bad.

Nice advert Blue

Nice snide comment netnerd.

I have a problem with Skype sometimes grabbing focus from games, and while I probably wouldn't buy (or subscribe to) this, I thought it might be of interest to others with similar problems.

If it's not, please feel free to attack my integrity.
Forgive me El Presidente Quiver I did not mean to attack El Presidente's integrity Bawling

Puppyeyes Forgive? Nervous

Sure no problem. No forgiveness needed, I wouldn't hold a grudge over that, just wanted to defend myself. This was just a news post: I don't do advertorials.

I'm hopeful that he will eventually grow weary of failing to mark the stove and/or walking around in a soggy belly belt, but so far that's not the case

I'm gonna have to go with "doubt it". Animals (like humans!) can be incredibly stubborn...

Yeah, I hear you. And I think I've mentioned before that the Gunnar-man's adaptability I wrote of is sort of voluntary. When he wants to be stubborn, he can be quite mule-headed.

Chefs put salt and pepper on *everything*.

That really sums it up. When something has too little salt, a chef will say it needs "seasoning." It's that basic a concept.

And it's not really even about moderation: The adverb most frequently used as an instruction for salting meat before cooking is "liberally."

Yah, same here. I'm a sucker for that stuff.

As for other questions/remarks: Gunnar-man has always been fine, even when he was flooding us, but the belly-belt has been working, though he shows no signs of relenting.

And I sent NetSol the blinking light diatribe word-for-word.

If you don't want skype interrupting your gaming why leave it running while you game?

Because it is how my friends contact me to play.

My urge was to reply asking why someone would assume someone was too stupid to think of that solution, so I think I'm in a bad mood.

Apologies.

My father was a burger fiend, but he never did seasoning. Might have been why a home cooked burger doesn't really appeal to me, years later.

There's a myth that home cooks are stuck on that salting meat before cooking it draws moisture to the surface to be evaporated away. This leads to a lot of them cooking meat without seasoning it first, which is a crippling error right off the bat.

It's science: Salt does that to everything and it toughens meat. Just "season" it with everything BUT salt! Try it yourself and you will see that it is 100%. Best example: Bake a Peeled Potato One Salted and One Unsalted.

I won't come out and say you are just wrong about this. But you will be hard-pressed to find any trained chef who will agree with you.

Salt make's food taste better by sucking out the taste from within the food. Works great on clotting blood to but stings a bit to much for my taste.

This time I'll say you are just plain wrong. Salt brings out the flavors in foods, it doesn't just move them around, as you say. This is one of the most basic understandings in the culinary arts.

A cursory Googling of the topic will show this to pretty much be universally accepted.

Love to have a 5 Guys or Fatburger here. The one time I tried a White Castle while traveling, I wasn't overly impressed.

Ugh, I've always hated White Castle. Those nasty little overcooked sliders and the soggy bun. They are shit even fresh off the grill.

Basically, if you want a good burger here, you end up going to a mom and pop place (Ron's, Fat Guys). And that's not a bad thing at all (yea for local business!), but I would like more variety.

Well to agree with the post below yours, the best burgers I have are the ones I make myself: It's not even close.

Btw, to augment the recipe he mentions, the meat needs to be seasoned before cooking. Chef
