    I always forget what broiling means. It's a horrible word none the less.

    It means grilling, so far as I understand.

    "Grilling" to an american is something more akin to barbecuing, I think.

    Nope. Broiling is applying high heat from a (usually close) distance above the food, usually for a short period of time in order to get a nice crust/melt cheese/etc. Grilling is applying moderate-to-high heat from a medium distance below the food, usually for a short to medium period of time, in order to cook the food entirely. Broiling is, AFAIK, never used to cook, rather to add something after the dish is cooked.

    Grilling is what it's called in the UK.

    This is basically grilling as understood in the UK, though it doesn't carry the same implication of high heat. You might cook burgers, kebabs, bacon, etc under a grill.

    In as far as there is an equivalent, this does sound more like barbecuing as I would understand it.

    Grilling is a variable.

    Huh. Good to know there's a regional variant to the terms. What would you guys call grilling, then? Barbecuing?

    And barbecuing is supposed to be just slow cooking a piece of meat over flavorful wood smoke and other such things, but so many Americans and Australians call what's technically grilling "barbecuing" that the terms are somewhat mixed now and only people who do actual barbecuing insist on a distinction in terms.

    I don't see how one could have a differing viewpoint on this

    I dont think there is a common appliance in the UK that applies direct heat from below the food, aside from an outdoor barbecue or a griddle over a fire, etc.

    I want to make a [religion] thread, please help me... :(

    It'd be about occultism. A 15 year old boy killed a 14 year old kid in one of the extreme Christian villages last year. No one really knew what the hell, but now the verdict is in and there was a rather harrowing article in the papers about the reason behind it.

    The culprit and the victim were friends, with the culprit being an unpopular kid. The culprit had told the victim in private that he had had contact with the spirits of the dead. The victim then went ahead and told it to others in front of his friend. The culprit lost it and stabbed the victim repeatedly. At first, none of the kids who were there wanted to speak up, but in the end they did and the culprit admitted guilt and has requested to be put in a Christian psychiatry ward that specializes in driving out devils.

    This whole story has confused many people, believing in witches is considered backwards by everyone I know. So the newspaper set out to learn more about why these kids took their occultism this damned seriously and spoke with doctors from the ward and other specialists. They argue that since they believe God, Jesus, saints and angels are real and that everything written in the bible is real. So why would the other side of the coin not be equally true? If a girl really saw Maria standing before her in Lourdes and if Moses really split the ocean...then why would it not be possible to seek contact with the dead and the devil as well?

    They went on to argue that every kids/young adults movie or book is full of magic and the fantastic and that many kids and young adults become convinced that if Harry Potter can cast magic, then it must be possible to do stuff like that in real life as well. They go out of their way to learn about the occult and try to do all the tricks they see on TV (done by such folks as Char, Urry Geller, etc). There are many people who are absolutely convinced that magic is real and it is possible to become possessed.

    Now I know there's plenty of Christians in the South of the US who believe in similar things, and it seems they have gotten their inspiration from their pre-Christian religions. Hell, there are dozens of stories from African nations where the greatest cruelties are committed because of evil spirits and spirit healing and more of that stuff.

    This is kind of where my train of thought stops at the moment, so there's millions of people - even in the West - who are absolutely convinced that magic is real. I consider this worrisome and a completely foreign concept to me. I don't know where the Debate and/or Discourse would be in this.
