Out of the Blue

I recently picked up a simple kitchen gadget that makes me very happy. It's a silicone egg ring. Accompanying purchases were English muffins and some beyond breakfast sausage patties for some home Sausage McMuffin knockoffs. A lot of times recreating a fast food recipe at home involves trying to elevate things. If I was trying to make a Big Mac at home I certainly wouldn't be striving for well-done 1/4" thick patties. But in this case being able to reproduce a Sausage McMuffin that tastes exactly right seems like a triumph. My one variant is using slices of a gruyere/cheddar combo that melts beautifully without subjecting anyone to American cheese. This cheese is definitely going to make for some excellent cheeseburgers too. Though in that case if they turn out like authentic McDonalds I'll end up throwing away my grill.

Maybe you haven't noticed, but the right has been playing the victim card for decades. That's why they coined terms like "reverse racism" and "replacement theory." I don't know this guy's politics, but I don't think we can discern it by the fact he brought a claim like this. If anything, the fact that he is a middle aged working class white male bringing a "male as victim" harassment case suggests a conservative turning harassment laws to their favor. "Reverse sexism" as it were.

Nope, the left uses the term way more than the right. I wouldn't be surprised if they coined it themselves. Just like you just coined "reverse sexism".

Now we just need someone here to argue that men can't be victims of sexism.

Former Amazon employee doesn't trust Amazon reviews. There's an indictment.


Considering how many things I've bought from Amazon with cards in it saying "hey we'll give you a 10 dollar gift card to give us a positive review on Amazon", no I do not. Word of mouth is still better then online reviews.
That's strange. I've heard of that practice, but have never seen that.

I agree that not any normal human would equate being called a "bald cunt" with sexual harassment. But I fail to see the connection between "not any normal human" and liberals. How would you define "liberal"? Genuine question.


On some days that's actually a compliment!

Oh, I was going to mention but forgot. Watched The Northman two nights ago and last night. Damn fine movie. Damn fine. 10/10. Would recommend and all that jazz.

Be advised that you are going to watch a drama, not an action flick.
Saw it last night. It is a masterpiece, but it's also not a 4 quadrant feel-good movie. It's the anti-Marvel. Amazing how Eggers combines high stylization with high realism. You'd think that they would be incompatible. Also, Anya Taylor Joy swoon.

I second this notion.
The one I got was an impulse buy at the supermarket. It has no markings on it and I threw out the packaging. But it's just a silicone ring with a little swingarm with a silicone tab for grabbing. It's pretty generic but seems to work fine.

I was just saying to MrsBlue that I should get more so that I could turn these out four or six at a time for guest breakfasts/brunches. If I shop for more we can revisit this.

it's my birfday soon, and i just bought an $80 wagyu steak for myself. if anybody has any recommendations how to cook it i'm all ears. 12 oz NY strip.

Reverse sear. Put it in the oven at like 200 - 250 until it's about 10-15 degrees below your target temp. Then finish on a super-hot pan in a high heat oil (clarified butter or ghee is a steakhouse classic, but avocado oil, grapeseed, sunflower are all good high heat ones) for 30 seconds each side. Look up reverse sear for more tips, but you'll get a perfect interior with an almost non existent grey band on the steak if done right.

I second this notion.

Just make your own with some scissors and a soda can.

Due to legal matters I have to live within 1 block of my town's fire department when cooking. This also includes provisions prohibiting me from using "self-made" cooking utensils.

And I won't even go into the problem with scissors.

I clearly must be missing something, but if people are dying from Fungal Infections why the f*ck aren't they getting a course of Anti-fungal meds?
It's so bizarre they don't even mention Anti-Fungal medications.
