I know a lot of members have been here longer, but I just realized  I've been here for 10 years.

Giddy gawd how time flies by................. WTF!  Shocked

Annnnnnd, in other news, I recently started tweeting again. (no, on Twitter, I'm not growing feathers or anything. Yet...)

But, so far, nobody I followed back before I stopped tweeting or reading the feeds  back seven or so years ago will talk to me now. Or people I've followed recently. Maybe they think I'm a zombie or some such.

Addendum: checked past tweets and found the last was in 2016. So, four years and not seven.

WTF moment: Hedgefund rich boys throwing their toys out of the pram, when the 'dumb investors' screw over their plans to 'sell a rental and buy it back cheaper when the return comes due.'

This is what they're there to do, predict the market. People have a soft spot for certain stock. You try to drive it into the ground they will retaliate. They need to be on those forums and reddit threads. It's action and reaction no different from a typhoon in coffee growing country. They failed to do that, they failed to predict the market.

There are not many GAH's in cooking where you managed to change the state of a meal from a liquid into a solid. On the plus side if you had managed to turn it into a gas, a fire extinguisher would have been required. So silver linings eh?

That pan is going to need some work.

I’ve burned a lot of soup... If it has beans in it (minestrone), or peas (pea and ham), they need to be stirred a lot to stop them sticking and burning.

Nah, half an hour soak and a scrub with machine shop grade steel wool. Back to good as new.

To Mr Hogbin: A man with a plan who laughs in the face of adversity. Precisely what we need right now!
To SeVeNeVeS:  Little older, a little wiser. Less inclined to fight more of a mind to compliment. (although threadjackery around uncouth postings still stands. If not outright ban-able (not my row to howe) we'll humbly in our limited capacity, take all the -isms straight down to clown town where they belong.) I hope this minor dalliance finds you well.

Another GAH then (more a first world GAH): Waiting for 2 stonking 3D printed flintlock nerf guns to get.... well 3D printed.

Hello, Clym, long time no encounter! Not to worry, the pendulum will swing back sometime soon...  I hope ...



In any case, I'm glad to see that you also have not yet succumbed to the ravages of pestilence or the winds of time, Mr. Angus!

My brother once burned water - or at least that was what it looked like.  For a large gathering he tried to make pasta but the pot was too big for the heating power of the stove and it wouldn't boil.  The pasta softened, sank to the bottom and, when he left the room and got distracted, turned to a solid mass of dough which blocked the water and burned on the bottom.  When he returned the water wasn't boiling - it was smoking.

I feel we are more than likely to mutually agree, when I say. "If that death bloke comes near me before I'm good and ready. I'll rip his tits off." Not a warning mind you, more a statement of iron clad fact. Cheesy

"Predatory killing machines", you say. It seems fairly clear why Death would like them then.  Wink
