    It's got a really sweet low-end sound. A nice, heavy rock quality to it. It'll make a a great rhythm axe for my Billy Joel tribute band.

    Speaking of Billy Joel, I recently heard We Didn't Start the Fire for the first time in a long time. I was shocked to realize that I knew the history of almost everything referenced in that song.

    Such a fantastic song.

    It's in the "What's D&D is cooking" thread. Tell me how much of an aberration it is, Shaz. I went to a Tibetan place in Davis Square a few weeks ago, and they served a lot of food that had Indian flavors but were cooked more like stir-fry - so they were a little toothier and with lighter notes, so I've been playing with that concept.

    edit: also, I might look white but I do not have a white soul..
    Honestly, I know fuck all about cooking Indian food, I can barely cook basic things. And my family is from Gujrat, so we don't even cook meat that often. Seems legit though and not too complex.... though I question the use of Jalepenos instead of those thin green chilis (I dunno what they are called, I know what they look like though!).

    You know, I would prefer to use the long green ones or even little green Thai peppers but my local Shaws is so shitty I was lucky to get Jalapenos.

    Still, it's worth remembering that no peppers are native to India, Europe or Asia. They were all taken from the Americas, and were bred down to whatever local varieties are in use today. Heat aside, there's not a great deal of flavor difference between Jalapenos, Thais, Serranos and what have you.

    I'll have you know my attention span is not ferret-like unless that includes being distracted by ferrets.

    I do this with some films BUT... the tv experience, including the couch, is so superior to anything else.

    I do realize this is a case by case basis, just sharing my experience. I love netflix, though I waste about a month and a half before getting back to Paris je'Taime on saturday.

    but he won't let me spend time with his book because he fights with him all the time when the book goes missing. and she won't get me my own book because it's to expensive to pay for it, and then also that on top of it. she's a bitch though, I wish she hadn't left so she would still be in charge of my learning about it.

    They had Malabar (black) Pepper, which is where Chili Peppers got their name. Outside of tangy flavors like garlic or onions, that was all they had in terms of spicy-hot. It kind of blows the mind.

    Also, potatoes, tomatoes, chocolate, peanuts, corn were all from the Americas. Most all the "native" cuisines we know of are quite recent. It makes one wonder what people in Europe or Asia ate before Columbus.

    That would be Jaipur Karhi. And no, they didn't eat those before because those dumplings are potato dumplings.

    If all my notes weren't still boxed up, I could totally tell you the staple foods of early Indus Valley civilizations. Instead, I'll leave you with an archaeological fun fact:

    It is impossible to distinguish between the remains of sheep and the remains of goats in the archaeological record. As such, archaeologists often use the term sheep-goats when talking about cultures that domesticated these animals, as we have no way of knowing which it was.

    That might have rung some bells if all the signs weren't written in Urdu. It was so nasty, though. Maybe they just didn't do a good job with it, but it was pretty fucking offensive.
