So he’s gonna be Anorak in the future, I guess?

I know this is a couple of years old, but it just showed up in my Google feed. I’ve been daily driving mine for more than 16 years now. I bought it new with 2 miles on it, and last month I hit 222,222 miles. It is, as you said, just a blast to drive and still puts a smile on my face. I'm about to turn 54, so I'm a bit Read more

Saw this before a movie last month at the theater, and it was so good. Very deserving of an award.

For a brief, glorious time the little Midwest town of 8,000 where I work had a fantastic sushi restaurant. I knew it wouldn’t last, but while it was here my favorite thing was the kelp salad with octopus. I normally don’t like octopus particularly, but this salad was delicious.

Personally, I think Hardee’s burgers are always too dry. My favorite fast food burgers currently are the Quarter Pounder and the Whopper Jr. Wendy’s burgers are a close third. The Quarter Pounder went through a years-long period of being dry and bad, but for at least a couple of years now—even before the change to Read more

For compactness on this dial she used, I think the finger stop itself moves. See the gap near it? If you dial a 1, it looks like the whole dial and stop move 2 holes clockwise, then probably springs back to the position in the picture.

Something spring-loaded and fluid-damped that you open by pressing a physical release button seems like it would be ideal for a phone like this.

My parents still had a rotary dial phone when I got married and left home. The last four digits of all the numbers in our town started with either a 6 or an 8. I remember that as kids we discovered that if the number we were calling started with 8, we could just dial those last four digits, and the call would go Read more

In college I worked in a biochem research lab one semester, and part of my job was going to a slaughterhouse to get 5-gallon buckets of pig semen (epididymides full of semen, technically). You could start there maybe.

I agree they were the worst parts. And I’m a guy who told my wife and kids it was fine. I mean, it was weird; it was Cats. It’s a weird story, as a live action interpretation of a poem. You probably either like Cats or don’t. I saw the stage version once at the Winter Garden, and I enjoyed it. This movie version Read more

Yeah, I was thinking, at least it didn’t break off in the hole! Potentially a much more frustrating problem.

It’s not easy to get an absolutely perfect score. I’m beginning to get old (in my 50s), and I managed to get to 849 once somehow. I wasn’t really trying, just checked it once and that’s what it was. Currently sitting at 830 with these stats, according to the reporting agency: Read more

The best mint chocolate chip is Breyers. None of that artificial green color. It’s pure white minty vanilla ice cream with big chunks of bitter dark chocolate. Perfect complement of flavors!

Yep, I sometimes tell people (when it fits in the conversation, not just random people on the street) mix cream, egg yolk, sugar, vanilla, and salt. If you freeze it, it’s ice cream. If you bake it then torch some sugar on top, it’s crème brûlée. If you add a little nutmeg and maybe clove, it’s eggnog.

Absolutely, but then you should reduce the amount liquid.

The person who supposedly took it has said it was run through the iPhone color enhancement filter (or whatever it’s called--I’m an Android guy), but even in other unaltered pics taken by several other people at the same time, the line is there and pretty obvious.

The only Doctor I’ve been lucky enough to meet! He and Nicholas Courtney were together at a convention I went to in the 80s. They were hilarious, and seemed to really enjoy being there together.

Our local favorite style is that crispy thin crust, tavern cut. A couple of days ago I had some fresh at the restaurant for the first time in a while, and I forgot how much better it is right out of the oven. I mean, I’ve picked it up and taken it home fairly often, but it tastes twice as good when it’s still almost Read more

I’m not a diver (did it once at a resort), but I remember hearing that you could use baby shampoo like J&J No More Tears to help keep the inside of a diving mask from fogging.
