Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I wish we had [thing] in [country].

    david chang wrote something for the most recent esquire about how our meat-centric diet is a pretty recent development and that meat consumption is going to start to go on the decline that was interesting

    Calling bullshit on this. Pretty much every species in the ancestral tree of humanity eats meat, sometimes exclusively. And our closest cousins eat lots of meat, chimps have been known to abduct and eat human infants for crying out loud.

    eats meat? sure

    but a primarily meat diet is pretty recent for most cultures
    without modern methods of raising livestock, it's pretty difficult for many cultures to raise/hunt enough meat for it to be a staple food

    Mango is the fruit of the heavens

    Cutting both halves, then cutting horizontal and vertical lines on each half, then you "fold it" so it turns inside out, and then you got individual squares you can bite. Yum yum.

    It's also very good with something spicy, like the many awesome chili sauces we have the priviledge of having in Mexico

    it's not that we haven't or shouldn't eat meat. chang is pretty much the king of pork and refuses to make his menus vegetarian friendly. but what's happened is we've been overconsuming meat, and now that feed and so forth is getting more expensive, meat is skyrocketing in price.

    the idea is that we will likely a) need to embrace nose-to-tail cooking more, and b) use meat as part of a dish rather than the whole dish.

    I was raised doing the latter pretty much all the time. We didn't do much of the former, since my mom prefers using non-meat proteins (mostly cheap cheese, "cheese product", and the like) to organ meats. We did eat a lot of spam and the like, though.

    It amazes me how many things I learned as a kid are "poor people" things. Until I was a teenager, I thought everyone used cloth diapers, only went to the second-run theater, and passed hand-me-downs through two generations of five families. I like these habits. They have served me well.

    I'd use cloth diapers for economic and environmental reasons

    When I was a baby I had cloth diapers, but then that is because I am that old

    However, my mother didn't realise they were supposed to be used in tandem with plastic pants

    I can't decide is that's hilarious or horrible.

    We're about the same age, but disposables have been the norm here in 'murrca since the late seventies. Cloth wasn't unheard of when I was a baby, but it was unusual.

    Most new parents today don't even know there is such a thing.
