That’s been part of my logic, too. I also figure that if Google wants to develop products that make my life easier, might as well give them access to as much random data so I can take full advantage of their offerings. I’m just waiting for an app that can look ahead at my schedule and pre-order a pizza for the day I’m  Read more

Thanks for clarifying the science behind mustard! The powdered form has been one of those spices that I rely on in a pinch if whatever I’m cooking is lacking that special *something*, but I’ll definitely be incorporating this info into my recipe development toolkit.

I also grew up in the burbs and totally get that it’s a matter of finding a balance between competing interests. I think in our situation we just realized that we really love where we live and that we significantly value location over space. When/if we have kids (emphasis on the “if” as we’re both cis-male, so having Read more

The problem with this plan is that we have no family nearby and where our families live, job prospects in our fields are bleak or non-existent. We’re also both wildly happy with our jobs and have a great life all things considered. We just can’t afford the $150-200k down payment required for homes in our neighborhood.

My partner and I did a test-run of the suburban life this past weekend and quickly realized it was not for us. There’s no point in moving into a larger space if you’re going to spend 2-3 hours less at home each day because of the commute. I’ll keep my tiny apartment if it means we don’t need to own a car and can both Read more

I use to switch it up between that phrase and “just another day in paradise” when asked.

This stuff was the most important seasoning of my childhood and it wasn’t until I left Miami that I realized how uncommon it was.

Minced mushrooms are my secret for making fake meat meatier. Heck, they also make real meat meatier! I sauté the mushrooms first until reduced by about half and then add the protein and proceed as normal.

I was about to complain that this seemed like a waste of good milk and butter, but the cooking liquid would be great in a bread dough and all you’d need to add is flour. I’m thinking a 2:1 white flour to corn flour mixture would make tender and sweet flatbreads.

If you’re waking up consistently at around the same time I would guess there’s an external cause. Could be anything from your freezer’s auto-defrost cycle to a newspaper being thrown at your front step (do people still get papers?). If you’re alert enough when you wake up, listen for any weird sounds in the Read more

Just my 2 cents, but if you have insomnia issues I’d recommend seeing a mental health professional. I dealt with regular bouts of insomnia for most of my life and various treatments would occasionally work, but mostly I just had to bull through the insomnia until it subsided on its own. A few years ago I finally saw a Read more

I like this idea. Much better than my “move across the country based on a less than 24-hour visit” during which I saw exactly none of the city. Read more

I feel the same way. The only thing I categorize in my budget are debt payments and money transferred to savings. The rest is just one big bucket of funds that can be spent any which way. Read more

My proposed qualification for the case of robbery was not meant to be exhaustive and I’m not going to engage with your example of the “wealthy” robber. The severity of the transgression is the actual issue at hand. As you said, hate crimes are never justifiable. Read more

Your examples are not equivalent because they represent significantly different breaks with cultural norms. Someone who has robbed a store (assuming the intent was purely financial and the outcome did not involve bodily harm) has transgressed a societal norm, however, it can be rationalized as the outcome of a dysfunct Read more

Legit, the big city is expensive. But once I’m not sending 50% of my paycheck to cc debt, I’ll be doing pretty fantastic.
