    Dangerously hot hot sauce

    scruffy: cheeky is the same, when it comes to my collection. some sauces have amazing flavours, that you may or may not be able to achieve without the heat. sometimes the heat is a major player in how to appreciate the flavour. A lot of these sauces tho, as well, don't really have much of a flavour as a presence. If i'm eating chili con carne, then I expect it to be hot as a motherfucker. Since i can't cook it the way i'd like, and still have Cheeky eat it, then I buy these sauces and put it thru. I've tried a few of the maddogs, the blairs, and a couple of others. I've never done the whole "dip a toothpick" bullshit - go hard (and get the hiccups and/or the sharts) or go home. The worst I had was when I accidentally put too much into a pasta sauce (i was drunk) i was eating after soundwave (i told you i was drunk), and got the hiccups so bad that i couldn't do shit about it. then 3 or 4 hours later, i was laying in bed with horrible indigestion. So i make sure I do a better job of being careful with these things. Having said that tho, I'm always on the lookout for hotter and hotter sauces.

    Restaurant etiquette

    There are a few places we go to that specify that they have "sessions". E.g. one place has a 6 - 8 session, and an 8 - 11 (or close) session. We always go the 8pm session. Otherwise, its pretty much as stated by MD. You tend to get a table for the night, however, depending on the type of establishment, they prefer you only stay while you're still ordering. Another bottle of wine on the table will keep them happy, or even just a round of coffee after dessert. I have found in a few places that if they want you to fuck off, they'll ask if you want to order a second dessert...

    The Recipe Thread

    Heres one for the blokes. Works well if you want left overs for lunch, or have a group of mates coming over and want something a bit classier than pies for watching the footy. Lamb shoulder. Rub it with ghee (or butter if you must, no real diff tbh). Get it really covered all over in butter, like so that its yellow on the outside. Rub it with cumin, coriander, thyme, salt, pepper. Grab some garlic, SMASH IT - NOT CRUSH IT, and rub it over the meat. then jam it into little crevices. place in a oven pan, tuck in tightly with alfoil, and put half a cup of water in the pan. Leave it in the oven for about 3 hours on 180 - 200. after 3 hours, leave it aside to cool. prepare some greek yoghurt, some pita pockets and halve a pomegranate. pull at the lamb shoulder with forks. place the meat into the pita pocket. add a spoon of yoghurt, a shake of the cumin and coriander. tap the pomegranate so that a few seeds land on the top of it all. pinch together in a little parcel (think like a 4 sided taco) and smash it with a few beers. Cheeky loves it, I love it because its easy to make and its decent bloke food, and it leaves fantastic left overs.

    In which case, look up vital call or similar. Still not as good as you getting your hands on a tty machine, and actually I believe it will be considerably more expensive.

    Anonymous declares war on Westboro

    If a retard deserves a flogging for picking a fight in a bar, then he deserves a flogging. What, equality is only good for people when it benefits them? If they can't act like a human in public, lock them up like the animal they are. In the same fashion you'd treat any other person who acts like an animal in public. What these people are doing extends beyond freedom of speech. These families have every right to grieve in peace. Your right to freedom of speech does not extend to suppress their right to grieve. Its the same manner in which people are slammed for speaking ill of the dead so soon after their passing. Fuck them. Don't kill them, but certainly make it known that they're not tolerated.

    Oh Noes who cut the Line

    QAS uses the same system as us. We work very closely with them because our vendor and support structure is the same. They use CLI info the same way we do, when they get it. Thats the thing - we don't always get it. Plus, they use the same triaging systems we do. So, for example, if his father is in cardiac arrest and they don't get any kind of information about that, his father runs the risk of getting the default response - which is inadequate for the situation at hand. Your mother didn't get anything other than a default response. You said "an ambulance" - i take it there was only 1?

    Oh Noes who cut the Line

    1) Vodafail is shit. I'm with them now, in sydney, and the speeds and coverage are ordinary at best. Expect constant dropouts. 2) Your tape idea isn't the best either. Simply saying "I need an ambulance to this address" isn't too great either. Without going too far into it, if you have an issue with a bad line, a drop out, and/or with the feed of the CLI data from Telstra, you run the risk of leaving the emergency services person on the other end of the line without even the most basic of information to assist you. Also, consider that these calls are triaged and graded based upon your responses to key questioning. The default response you will obtain by using this method may not be adequate should your father need a higher level of care. Theres a damn good reason why i linked to the above site. Any other suggestion in this thread is inferior and risks the wellbeing of anyone who requires an emergency response.
  8. Yup. No trickery here. Well pissed (thanks Dave!) and off the train. Stumble down the stairs and wait for Cheeky to pick me up. Cops drive past the train station, do a u-ey, and turn into the station car park. They do a loop and pull up next to me. I'm wearing headphones and am hard as fuck. Whatchoo gunna do, Serpico? I ignore them at first, but then she makes it obvious she wants me attention. Me: "Sup?" Her: "having a good night?" Me: "Sure am. Back from an xmas party. You?" Her: "Doing the rounds... What are you doing here?" Me: "Just off the train... You?" Her: "Just pulled that guy over for a breathalyser" *She did. I was watching her do it as I came down the stations stairs* Me: "Sweet. So... Whats your interest here?" Her: "Just making sure you get home ok" Me: "Thanks. I live literally 200m away, but up the hill. Don't feel like walking it in my current condition, and my wife is on the way" Her: "Fair enough. I'll wait. Had a good night so far?" Me: "Yeah, pretty good. Had a few beers, then played a few games of pool with a mate. Ready for bed before tomorrow tho..." Her: "Is this your wife now?" *cue Cheeky pulling into the car park* Me: "Yup... Do us a favour and flash your lights for me. Freak her out a bit." Cop: *Flashes lights* Cheeky: "WTF?!" Me: "Thanks for that. Have a Happy Xmas and New Years." Her: "Have a good one mate" Cheeky: "WTF was all that about?!" TLDR:

    Home Automation - Anyone doing it?

    Watering system would be something I'd like to do down the line. I helped my ex's father set up his own, but that was pretty much a full custom system. And even then, we still dug trenches to lay everything. I've been researching setting up a portable green house that can move with us, but thats something for future. As for things like peak vs off peak, I'm not really concerned about that at the moment. Tho the powering off of lights etc when someone leaves the room does interest me (again, it could only be lamps at the moment). Locking doors and windows is one of those things that'd come down the line with more investigation. Right now tho, all i'm really looking at is having centralised control of a few devices around the house. Ideally, I'd like to be able to let myself in the front door, hit my rfid fob against a reader, that will then turn on lights down the hallway (this house is weird in that the rooms are long and the switches are on the far side of the room), as well as kick over the stereo with a set playlist for my profile (or, in the case of Cheeky, a preset radio station). Then when its time for bed, and I realise that the TV/PS3/Lamps are on, I can use my phone or ipad to shut them off without having to get up. Having an automated pet feeder would be good too, as well as being able to feed them remotely. Another thing I've forgotten, is setting up a webcam stream to be able to watch the place from at home (security, mebbe. Moreso watching the cat and dog play all day :P ) Once the greenhouse is setup, I'd like to incorporate an irrigation system into that, but theres a million timer products on the market that can do that without centralised control. Still, it would be handy if I could integrate that too. Thats the kind of thing I'm after at the moment. The clipsal kits you mentioned: They're mostly just timer based products, no?
