Out of the Blue

I have another of my little homemade schemes in the works, as I've been thinking about trying to make pickles ever since MrsBlue and I saw some baby cucumbers at the market a while back. She convinced me to figure out what was involved before doing this, which was a good call, since pickling salt is a specialty item I needed for the process. As of today, I think I am set, as I have my salt, a wad of dill, and a pile of warty cukes ready for the brine. I'm looking forward to trying this, though there will be some suspense involved, as it will be several weeks before they are ready to eat.

I've made pickles before. The spices you choose has a great effect on how they taste. They WONT taste like store bought. If you do a good job though, they may taste better

Hmm, I made vinegar cured, that video link looks like an interesting way to do it with brine, now I want to try that way too lol
And he has some interesting things to try with pickles, such as the fried pickle and the sweet pickle.

Did you replace your browser? Make sure, in addition to being logged in, that on the page where you make a post, the "Remember Me" check mark is checked. I've had that issue once or twice when upgrading/reloading...

IE, you can tell FF to remember your password for posting, and it will, but the site needs the Remember Me checked to filter.

Superman? I'd agree, except it's from Zack Snyder, who's last movie was Stupid Punch. So I'm not holding my breath...

They were quite obvious in not mentioning that in the teaser:

From Zach Snyder, director of Watchmen and 300!

Batman was... OK. Not quite as precipitous a fall as Spider-Man 3 was, but it was definitely not up to Dark Knight snuff. And it was waaayyyy tooooo lloooonnnggg.

It'll be good. Bank on it. The following two will get subsequently worse however because that's how Hollywood works.

Blue you should go for homemade Kimchi or Sauerkraut. They are great additions to grilled meats and vegetables and have amazing health benefits, since they are fermented.

When I go for Korean Barbeque the side dishes are always a perfect complement to the grilled dishes.

Mmmmmm.... I now want real Korean bbq now, with things like sesame leaf...

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

There are 2 teaser trailers. 1 with John Kent's voiceover and another with Jor'El's voiceover.

Youtube has one (that Blue linked) VideoSift has the other.

And yes, that Alton Brown episode on pickling is fantastic.

The new Superman movie looks like it might actually be good. Hopefully it will explore the moral dilemma that he constantly faces. That is, the conflict between his god-like powers and the moral code his father instilled in him. Give the average person incredible power and they'll inevitably become corrupted by it, doing whatever they want because nobody can stop them. Seeing how Superman copes with this temptation is what makes him interesting but none of the movies have really dealt with this.

for one thing, hes not human..

Exactly. He was raised as a human but his abilities make it difficult for him to actually feel like one or identify with actual humans. The teaser trailer suggests that he's trying to live a life of solitude, which makes sense. The more he sees the frailty of others, the less human he feels.
