    i had a buddy with a potato cannon style gun with a laser-sight attached to it

    it punched holes through thick wooden fences 'cus it fired 15lb blocks of cement, i remember shooting it across the river at night and watching trees shake where the laser was pointing

    this same dude also was in a metalwork class where he learned to weld/work industrial metal and he used scrap there to make a panzershrek that really really worked

    [edit] when i say river i am referring to literally this exact place

    Yeah, we're starting small scale right now. Somehow, I'm the only one to make it work properly. Either they spray way too much propellant into the chute, or something else goes wrong.

    no such thing as too much propellant with thick enough PVC

    usually the issue is that it doesn't ignite right or there's a pinhole leak somewhere that makes filling shit with butane useless

    also butane is the best accelerant for the purposes i think

    Also what the hell kind of gun do you have that launches a 15lb cement block

    Small scale, with Pringle cans. What we've been using is aquanet.

    i mean i dunno where it is now, he moved off to college

    but it was a big goddamn potato cannon

    like i said we literally destroyed small wooden structures with it. the projectiles (we also used lead balls) would bury themselves like six inches deep in the dirt behind aforementioned structures, too

    this dude literally had the bomb squad raid his shed when we were 17

    american bacon is weird. i think you just burn the shit out of it until it's brittle and crunchy and all the meat is burnt away leaving only fat and salt? as a rule bacon should bend, not break

    While I don't really care for the internet's bacon obsession. To be fair I don't really care for people who complain about the internet's bacon obsession.

    I love a good potato gun. Fandy, that gun you made was 15 year old Tef's dream.

    I got hit in the face by my own potato gun one time. We loaded it up and as we're about to set it off, the guy firing it thought it would be hilarious to point it at me and the FOOM right in the side of the head. Luckily, it wasn't a particularly powerful gun but it sure made my ear ring

    Also yeah I agree re: the internet taking bacon too far.

    You can definitely have too much bacon.

    It is good in lots of stuff though. Even by itself with a meal.

    I really love spaghetti sans sauce with bacon and garlic in it

    my mother has this bacon carbonara recipe that is absolutely incredible

    As much as I love bacon(and I do), French Fried Onions is the best thing ever. You know those little crispy onions that go on Green Bean Casserole? I put those on everything.

    Burgers, ribs, pizza, breakfast cereal, pancakes, sammiches. Sometimes when I'm drunk I just sit there and eat them out of the can like they're potato chips. The only thing it doesn't taste good with is ice cream and candy. I can't explain why, but they are the best thing I've ever had.

    how much bacon i eat is proportional to how many eggs i am eating

    6 eggs for breakfast? i'm probably eating a shit load of bacon

    I had a bacon maple bar at Voodoo doughnuts today in Portland before I got on the train back home.

    Remarkably, it actually lived to to the hype.

    The bacon maple bar?

    It's pretty simple.

    Make some bacon.

    Get some maple bars.

    Consume the bacon and maple bars at the same time (put the bacon on the maple bars).

    voodoo doughnuts is a donut chain (2 in portland, 1 in eugene) in oregon that is wildly popular in portland and prides itself VERY much on being "quirky" and "weird" and stuff

    they make some good donuts (like the ODB) but it isn't like the best place ever. a really tasty donut is still a donut, people overhype it.

    the best thing about it is that it is 24 hour. the worst thing is that during summer-ish the line can be up to an hour wait.

    exist on

    Yep.

    They have doughnuts covered in Froot Loops, on with marshmallows and chocolate sauce, etc. . .

    They are pretty ridiculous.

    yeah some donuts are pretty shitty after you get past the novelty of it

    like the cereal ones

    turns out cereal gets stale pretty quick, sitting on top of a donut in the open

    The bacon maple bar was pretty much perfect.

    Crunchy bacon on top of a soft maple bar.

    Top it off with a half-pint of milk.

    There is, in fact, a perfect medium between the two. I've found that it's mostly arrived at by baking your bacon on parchment paper. Starting from a cold oven, you put 6-8 pieces of thick sliced bacon on your parchment covered sheet pan. Turn the heat on to 375-400. It'll take 10-12 minutes for most ovens to start frying the bacon in the rendered fat. After that point, you check it every 2 minutes and you can rotate/flip your bacon to ensure even doneness. It should take about 20 minutes or so from start to finish, depending on your oven and how often you open the door. Take it off when the bacon still won't remain flat as you lift. If lifting from the middle, it should form a C shape, not a V. Drain on paper towel or brown paper, blot after it's cool enough to touch.

    This will produce a bacon that is perfectly chewy, with a satisfying crunch on the fatty parts.

    Or, you could just come to St Louis and eat at Uncle Bill's. They do it perfectly.

    This is dumb. There's no reason you have to cook american bacon to a crisp. If you want to? Go for it. But it's silly to suggest that you have to. I love my bacon just slightly crisping but still mostly chewy.

    You gotta get rid of the fat on the bacon, so you just burn it until it's ashes and then eat the ashes

    the best bacon is the bacon that is wrapped around a dove breast stuffed with a jalapeno and cream cheese
