The Amare/Boris suspension still hurts. That was our year.
I almost threw my computer across the room when I read that one.
This must be a dream come true for that gaggle of narcissistic pricks and their delusions of persecution.
The first time I went to Cairo in 2007, I emerged at 9 p.m. to a crush of what felt like a thousand cab drivers, all pressuring me to use their services and assuring me that they knew the people that were actually there to pick me up, despite the fact that there are 25 million people in Cairo, a tenth of whom are …
That’s a false dichotomy for you.
Can I do that without upgrading to Windows Professional? The way they phrase things makes me feel like a hostage.
I ditched my iPhone for the same reason. I also noticed how shitty and compressed music sounds coming from iTunes when I accidentally did an A/B comparison with a Youtube video. That was the nail in the coffin for me.
I made the mistake of buying a Microsoft netbook and it forces me to use Edge (which is awful) and refuses to let me sync anything from my Chrome browser. If this is a means of addressing that nightmare I’ll be thrilled.
“Litigation” may not have been the term to use here, given where this will inevitably wind up.
My wife buys into the “butter must be perpetually spreadable” line, so we got a little French butter crock that allows you to smash the butter into a ceramic pocket and then submerge it in water at room temperature to prevent it from attracting ambient detritus and cat tongues. I thought this was a wasteful…
I’m not sure why they would even announce this prior to the Israeli elections. Anything that might look like a concession to the PA is a risk for Netanyahu, who is already legally fucked at the moment.
It’s definitely good to figure out local custom with this sort of thing.
He’s like Magic Johnson, but made out of cheese and then improperly refrigerated
According to Samat’s history of food, fish sauce has the same effect on the palate as MSG, so it will intensify whatever you add it to. Because of this I use it in probably way too many things.
I’ve spent years searching for the ideal fish sauce, and I’ve found that styles vary based on country, fish used, and brand.
Despite the absurd per-pound extra fees for an overweight bag, it’s often actually cheaper to just overstuff one single big bag (within the limits) than it is to bring a second bag. If you’re already bringing multiple bags, this works even better, though it’s best to keep it to one extra-heavy bag. I fly/move overseas…
Hitler was a shitty leader. He strongarmed his way into power and used brutal suppression and a total disregard for internal and international norms to transform one of the most advanced, best educated, best developed nations on the planet into a pile of rubble occupied by two superpowers, while forever associating…
It’s not much more complicated than that (cut off the head, pull off the skin, gut like a fish). But it’s basically a thin tube of muscle over a shitload of bones. If the snake is freshly killed, you may also have to deal with its random muscle contractions, which makes it flop around for a few minutes post mortem.
We think of them as terrifying, dangerous creatures, but we’re substantially larger than they are. Any encounter they have with us will likely end in their death.
It’s tough to get at the meat, which is tough and stringy, so I don’t recommend it. They do make great stock though! It’s kind of a mix of fish and chicken.
