    What Are You Cooking?

    oh no no no! as you know, theres different versions of rice pudding all over the world, and yours just happens to be from somewhere that has it all wrong :P there should be ZERO added cream. just pre-boiled rice simmered in milk to a fairly dense consistency. then an extra dash of milk when serving (so the milk around the edges of the bowl is coldish while the middle of pudding is still hot enough to peel the skin off the roof of your mouth) + sugar + cinnamon (or any chai / pumpkin spice) + butter. vanilla, maybe. but certainly none of that zest nonsense! :D

    i like it. but its got to be served HOT! scandinavian style — like a hot dessert porridge, with cinnamon, sugar, a dash of milk, and a small knob of butter.

    i knew that question was implied, and yet somehow i didnt preempt it. yep, logged in. so never mind if it doesnt happen to anyone else. it may just be me, since ive had weird behaviour with my log ins since the last update. generally, if i log in without the "remember me" box ticked, i show up as logged in, but there is no quote button on posts and i cant reply. this is fixed by me logging in a second time, also without the "remember me" box ticked. but then during the session my ability to post would sometimes be revoked whilst still "logged in", even after i had posted moments earlier. not sure if this was after a consistent idle time or what. and there was other weirdness beyond that, but i am sketchy since ive been using the "remember me" box for a while. it could be my old browser version.

    search for anything, find nothing you like in the first page, click on page 2 — BAM! 2 second penalty sin bin page — wait, refresh, nothing on page 2 either, click page 3 — BAM 8 second penalty page — and so on... same if you search and then click one of the suggestions too quickly eg. searching for "Woozle Wuzzle" will give you a shortcut to search for "Woozle AND Wuzzle" instead. i just did it — BAM! 26 second penalty O_o

    What a joke

    Jean Baptiste van Helmont, 17th-century 'chemist': "If a soiled shirt is placed in the opening of a vessel containing grains of wheat, the reaction of the leaven in the shirt with fumes from the wheat will, after approximately 21 days, transform the wheat into mice" nature abhors a vacuum. if you create the ideal circumstances for a certain type of thing to exist, more often than not, it will arise. it could be argued that President Trump is the result — inevitable in retrospect — of a recipe cooked up by the corporate interests hellbent on perverting TV journalism over the last twenty years or so.

    What's on your mind?

    dont think ive encountered that yet... but its only a matter of time i guess. tell me this: they added the "Miniplayer" button, but what the fuck use is that if not to browse comments while watching a video — which you cant seem to do? that would actually be useful, because often while listending to video i find ive strayed all the way down the comment cess pit expanding threads when something happens that i need to see and dont want to lose my spot. its retarded that i have to copy some comment text before scrolling all the way up so i can Ctrl-F back to where i was.

    What's on your mind?

    do you log in? i dont have a YT account. never saw the rationale for why a video delivery platform needs to keep account of me, even pre-Google. the supposed benefits are.... what? — something like push notification of new content in your subscriptions, and lame robotic "you might also like" recommendations. yeah fuck all that. i bookmark the 'videos' tab on accounts i like, and check in every once in a while, ordering them by date. ...anyway. since i dont make much of an effort to be untrackable in my ordinary YT watching browser, Google still manages to stalk me with their creepy recommendations during a session. HOWEVER, my cookies are deleted between sessions, and this seems to be enough to cause something of a refresh. in a new session, recommendations tend to be populated with stuff solely related to the search string that landed me on a YT video, and with little to nothing related to the YT content i tend to revisit day-to-day. but then again, i really wouldnt know if this is normal????????
  15. HAHA speaking of four bean mix... i just made some baked beans for the hell of it. 1 small onion, 2 cloves garlic, 1 satchet of this shit + 1/2 C water, 1 ts mustard powder, 2 ts brown sugar, 1 ts chinese black vinegar, white pepper, 2 cans four bean mix, 1/2 ts mushroom powder had it on massive slices of stale-ish sour dough. actually pretty damn good, considering.
  16. nope :) heres an experiment for you. open up a can, rinse off all the sauce in a colander, and then report back on the flavour of those beans. i put it to you that the point of the beans is they are a neutral mush for the conveyance of flavourful sauce, but mainly because they are a dirt cheap source of protein and fibre.
  17. yeah, i often add either vegemite or promite to stuff, but vegemite in particular has a bit of hair trigger. promite is more mellow and sweet. oh and i forgot garlic. definitely some garlic.
  18. yeah, it neednt be a lot of work. whats your recipe robzy? off the top of my head, this would work: fry some finely chopped bacon + onion, add some passata + balsamic + mustard powder + brown sugar + smoked paprika + white pepper + a diced fresh tomato or two + tiny bit of salt, reduce a bit then add cannellini beans [+ porcini mushroom powder!*] , cook some more, maybe a knob of butter and some more salt. then throw it all in the bin, because you just made baked beans. * cant be sure the mushroom powder would work here. but i recommended it for anyone who hasnt tried it for boosting the umami factor. its expensive, but goes a very long way.
  19. ikr LOL probably the only way this could be improved is if the jaffle itself came in a can. ...i say the only way, but do i worry about the carb content of this dish. seems a little low. and thats why "Our new and improved Canned Spaghetti Jaffle in a Can™ comes stuffed with delicious melange of Tiny Taters and Deb instant mash!

    What a joke

    my point was, even in that wildly exaggerated instance of "global competition" completely undercutting our own labour force, there are still enduring benefits to having more people. infinitely better, of course, is if we were to create jobs for australians building large scale projects, but however its paid for, the right infrastructure can simulate the economy and create jobs in its own right.
  21. @~thehung

    What a joke

    yeah, theres issues with that, but think infrastructure. with the population density to justify and sustain it, even if we paid offshore contractors for FIFO coolies to build better roads and railways and broadband...we'd still end up with all of that shit.

    What a joke

    "In 2012, it’s arguably just as much in Australia’s interests to boost its population numbers, in the interests of economic security and (according to some) military security also. And again, immigration – not an accelerated breeding program of naturalised Australians – is the only way this can realistically occur. As domestic industries increasingly surrender to global competition and as energy, agriculture and services industries increasingly depend on foreign markets for their long term survival, the issue of Australia’s relatively small population – despite its huge continental mass – raises little by way of public debate. A larger domestic population might provide markets for domestic industries, for local employment and for community wide infrastructure." [emphasis added] link

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    whats your major beef with RCA? i guess it all depends on the application. ive always found they stay put well, while being satisfyingly smooth to plug in/out. i suppose theyre fairly noisy and bulky, but i quite like them for spdif.

    Real life Fallout

    of the square tubing i presume. i am curious, since ive never towed a trailer more than a few ks once in a blue moon, do you think that will be enough to notice the extra weight?
  25. ive made them from scratch a handful of times over the years. i think... pretty sure... its just...there wasnt any baking involved? and my tomato sauce was actually palatable. kinda defeats the purpose though, when i imagine half the point for most is the impromptu convenience of the canned stuff.
