Cheese as we all know is best on toast.



Cheese FACTS!

Quote:
Cheese is made from milk and it takes around 10 litres of milk to make 1kg of hard cheese.

Cheese can be made from lots of different types of milk, such as buffaloes' milk, sheep's milk and goats' milk; most of the cheese eaten in the UK is made from cows' milk.

We all know that "Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet, eating her Curds and Whey" but I bet you didn't know that to make cheese, milk has to be separated into curds which are the lumpy bits and whey which is the liquid bit. We make cheese with the curds!

Some cheeses, like Mature Cheddar, are stored for one year or longer before they are ready to eat. They are kept in special rooms and sometimes even caves!

There are over 700 different named cheeses produced in Britain.

Cheddar is named after the Cheddar Gorge caves in Somerset where the cheese used to be stored to ripen. Cheddar is one of the most widely made cheeses in the world. King Henry II declared Cheddar cheese to be the best in Britain!

The majority of Shropshire Blue is not actually made in Shropshire, but in Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire.

Cheshire is one of the oldest British cheeses. It dates from Roman times and even gets a mention in the Domesday Book

Cornish Yarg came from a recipe found in a book in a farmer's attic - his name was Mr Gray (Yarg spelt backwards!)

Caerphilly was traditionally eaten by Welsh coal miners for their lunch.

Every spring sees locals in the village of Stilton, Peterborough, race along a course rolling Stilton shaped wheels.

Cheese comes in many different colours, textures, tastes and appearances. They can be hard, soft and some are runny!

Cheese is packed with the protein that we all need for growth and development.

Hard cheese is source of calcium with a matchbox-sized piece providing a third of an adult's daily requirement for calcium.

Cheese is a source of vitamin B12, which you need for red blood cell formation.

Each day our friends in France, Italy, Greece and Germany eat more than twice as much cheese, per person, as we do.

Cheese is one of the most versatile foods around and can be used as a starter, a main course or as a dessert - you can't do that with many other foods! Visit the Recipes section of our website to find out more

Cheese has the appeal of wine, and they naturally go together. Cheese, like wine, comes in many flavors but the underlying theme is rich, bitter smooth. Unless you like chunky ... but to each his own.

Cheese is an acquired taste, that, like wine, is often simplified almost like virgin wine and grape juice is for children. You have subtle cheeses, and some very strong cheeses. Usually strong cheese, again like strong wine, is used for cooking as some of the flavor cooks out or blends with other flavors to produce delectable sustenance.

Cheese and fruit go together better than wine and cheese if you ask me because I'm not very fond of wine. Try cheddar and cream cheese on a piece of pear fruit. It's delicious.

Instead of nuts you should use cheddar cheese...

As soon as the ponies saw what their trank's did to humans they moved in on the market and changed the scene for a while. Their shady dealing, sneaking hundreds of 1g bags into venues (hidden in their manes) then selling to anyone and being responsible for loads of ruined people who want to sit down mumbling crap instead of dance and have a laugh.

Well, I passed this copper in a town near me today, turns out the pony concerned has breached his Anti-Social Behaviour Order and is wanted for arrest and branding...



Honestly guys, they're an absolute menace in the SW of England. They've taken over the scene completely, made no effort to integrate at all, instead choosing to remain in their little enclaves producing low quality drugs and getting drunk on the local farm cider.

Luckily there is an answer, the local indigenous wild Dartmoor ponies have just about had enough, and as I type, I hear they are planning a raid on this invasive species of cheap trashy fake rainbow hooves.

Ice, amigo, you have to understand that the 'standard' pony is not a threat to our society and most people love them. It's just the rainbow hoof pretenders with their fake unicorn horns we have a problem with.
They've sneaked into society selling their euphoric pony drugs and conned a generation into accepting them as benevolent 'providers' in the dance scene.

If the situation was the same in your country then I'm sure you'd see what I mean, but they're so sly that they realised an unarmed society such as the UK was easy pickings for them so they chose to leave the US and attempt a takeover on this island.

Check out what they're packing these days...



...it's just a good job we have strength in numbers, and with the help of spray-paint, the Dartmoors have infiltrated at the highest level. We will overcome in time and the island shall one day be rid of this psychedelic & golden hooved enemy!

Dear Sir,
I write with some concern, for information about reports of feral ponies. Why have the government not told us about this? Clearly this is a conspiracy, and it goes right to the top.

Dear sir,
the 'ponies' shown are a well known conspiracy. A fictitious place called 'Dartmoor' was invented by the conspirators and they have since persuaded people that this place has feral ponies. The photographs are clearly fakes - quite amateur jobs. Even if they were accurate, they clearly show dwarf-necked lamas* rather than any pony.

Bikerman, I'm shocked, tell me you're just making a sick joke out of this?!
Have they got to you with their mind bending drugs, or has your account been hacked? I can't believe you would spread this dis-information and complete lies.

I've just got back from the moor, it's absolute carnage. The local pony population is struggling to defend against an overwhelming heavily armed force from the rainbow crowd. There are horrible reports of equine rights abuses and we're calling for a no fly zone to protect the innocent mares and foals.

Why does no-one take any notice of this? Why has the media largely ignored it so far?
Perhaps if there were oil reserves here we'd get the help we need, I can only hope the world picks up on this story and offers some 'humanitarian assistance'.

I'll try to get the proof you need, but even being seen with a camera phone is risky at the moment.
Stop spreading the lies Bikerman!! You might think you're safe in your part of the island but if they defeat us here in the South West you can guarantee they'll be spreading north - maybe you'll believe it when a pair of hooves break your door down in the night and you get a load of cup-cakes stuffed in places you wouldn't like.

It's truly a massacre, but now the cows are worried they might be next so efforts are being made to muster the Bovine Auxillary Detachment of the Agricultural Secret Service. They're a highly trained force known locally as "The Mad Cows" - I can see it turning ugly!

It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce the loss of 6 fellow Jesuits, a packet of cigarettes and a small bottle of 'altar spirits'. Our unit was on scout patrol around the 'St Joseph of the Blessed Cuckold' Church, responding to rumours of pony-like intrusions.*
They were ambushed by a company of suicide Mormons and, though they fought a brilliant rearguard scriptural defense, citing Aquinas, basic history and geography, and the laws of logic, they were eventually overwhelmed when they succumbed to the giggles after the Mormon-In-Chief shouted that the Native Amirican Indians damn well were so a lst tribe of Israel. Brothers Salvador, Sean, Patrick and Shaemus are reported missing believed converted, and an extensive search revealed no trace of the missing cigarettes and sanctified scotch.

* I have to say again that there ARE NO PONIES anywhere is these blessed isles. The last pony was 're-egineered for efficiency' during the Thatcher coup in the 1980's. As I remember it took a place on a government re-training scheme and became a Coy Carp. The former pony was extremely successul in the new role - an Essex 'businessman' paid a reported £100,000 to own the largest Coy Carp alive - and things would still be fine if the advice about buying cheap regulators for scuba gear had been followed.

It strikes me that she directed it, and the dialog might have been something like "You've followed me home every night this week (he never takes off the costume), so do you want to act in my music video?

Air Force One being the name of the President's airplane. It has little to do with the Air Force except that's who protects him when he's in the air, and I imagine some of the officers on board the plane itself are actually Air force. Most on the plane are secret service/body guards.

You should check out Air Force One... it's a good movie about the President's plane getting hijacked, and it has Harrison Ford in it! Oh yeah! I do think this is a scene from that movie.

Probably Bollywood. I don't understand or know any of the Indian languages, but at one stage I was completely intrigued by the shows.

I just checked them out, and before I knew it, I was watching some of the shows. I'm now doing exactly the same with Turkish movies. I have not viewed Indian movies in a long time, but I remember some of the sound tracks were really quite magnificent. I think it is also the soundtracks that attracted me to Turkish movies as well. The Turkish movies make use of the violin as well, and I like the drama in the music. Sort of has a language of its own. Very Happy

I did this with German TV when I lived in Germany, but did not do it with Hungarian. The reason is that I was fascinated with German, but Hungarian is one of the top three most difficult languages in the world. My exposure to Hungarian was relatively the same as German: 4+ years -- about 8.5 total.

I used to like how sure of themselves German people sound -- very harsh and firm. I also think corny jokes in German are much more funny as a result. Maybe it's because I can't predict jokes in German like I can in English... who knows?

I need to get some German TV, so I don't lose any more! I used to be quite fluent when I was younger, but now I can really just understand and speaking is difficult.

Laughing Good point. Somehow I got the idea that you were a passionate baker, but I can imagine you must be thinking along the lines of really small details and a major project. By the way, one can buy those little guitar "picks" at a number of online stores. I did not want to post the links, as I was not sure whether that would be against the TOS, but when I googled it, it came up with pages of links. Who knows, you may even be able to find those at your favourite cupcake store?

Once you have those guitar picks, you can buy cupcakes from a cupcake store or you can make an order for what your preferences are. And then just stick the guitars on. Maybe add some flashy sprinkles as well to give it a flavour of celebration? If I were ever in a situation like guitar type celebration, then that is what I probably would have done, given that I'm a really very lazy guy as far as cooking and baking are concerned. Cooking is still possible once in a blue moon, but baking is really not my cup of tea. Very Happy

Hellsing is currently investigating an infiltration of magic ponies on planet earth. Hellsing seems to think this could be a major threat and that the ponies represent a new class of supernatural beings that may need to be exterminated. So has sent Dante to check out what the ponies are.

Well, in a way, I am sort of a passionate baker, but not cupcakes. Basically anything I bake with the word "cake" in it fails. But I do bake 95% of our bread at home. Sourdough is my latest favorite. I also make muffins once a week, and the specialty breads like pumpkin bread, soda bread, banana bread. I'm a little annoyed by this cupcake project, though, so I probably won't be putting any more effort in than necessary--I'm busy enough during the week. But my partner wanted me to do the same thing that you suggested--decorating them like guitars. for heaven's sake. Like I'm not already totally overworked:)

Saratdear, you're right! Can you take over cupcakes for Deanhills... I think it was a mistake to put him in charge of the cupcakes because he doesn't bake!

I confess... I only wish I could fly that UAV! It's the coast guard's UAV, however, but I think it's really cool all the same. My and my friend were debating if the wheels on the ends of the wings, back side of props, were retractable. He made the comment that he'd like to see it in the air with all the wheels up, and I told him that I don't see any reason you "have" to retract the outside wheels. It stands to reason that they might because it appears like they spared no expense on this little beauty, but I still see no proof in the photo that they do retract, and can sight a few reasons why they might not if you are interested in discussing that as well.

It's too late Dean, they're already onto it, these two were captured a few days ago while hiding out in a local stables...



...they're currently being treated as 'unlawful combatant/spies' who do not qualify for prisoner-of-war status under the Geneva Conventions. As a result, they are now being held in a UK military base on the North French coast. This was recently leased from France and now it enables us all to hold & convict them under military rules, ignoring any problems with equine rights and information being obtained through torture.

I haven't been on Frihost for a few days, it's total lockdown across SW England right now with a sunset-sunrise curfew, although you'd never realise it because mainstream media just aren't covering it!

Gotta go quick now, the Sun is going down and I'm an hours drive from home. I'm using McD's free wifi at a drive-thru again, since the ponies got on to me and attacked my home last week. I'm running scared to be honest, but I know we will overcome this new axis of evil pony terror soon.

I confess... I only wish I could fly that UAV! It's the coast guard's UAV, however, but I think it's really cool all the same. My and my friend were debating if the wheels on the ends of the wings, back side of props, were retractable. He made the comment that he'd like to see it in the air with all the wheels up, and I told him that I don't see any reason you "have" to retract the outside wheels. It stands to reason that they might because it appears like they spared no expense on this little beauty, but I still see no proof in the photo that they do retract, and can sight a few reasons why they might not if you are interested in discussing that as well.
I wish I could fly too, the UAV has to be the next best thing. A friend of mine in South Africa was into this, there was a whole club for it, but because it is quite a risky sport, they work with really high standards. Must be awesome to be gliding in the air however. Very Happy

Gotta go quick now, the Sun is going down and I'm an hours drive from home. I'm using McD's free wifi at a drive-thru again, since the ponies got on to me and attacked my home last week. I'm running scared to be honest, but I know we will overcome this new axis of evil pony terror soon.
Guess Hellsing HQ must be responsible for the curfew? Can't be too careful, and thanks for the heads up. I'm sure Dante must already be in the know. Rumour is that the ponies may be a masquerade for Valentine ghouls, hence the curfew, can't be too careful Twisted Evil

I can't see how you can help mate, the conflict zone is totally closed off and you won't get within 10 miles East of the red line on the map.
I've also circled the pseudo-UK territory (military base) on the northern coast of France. It's where any captured terrorist scum ponies will be sent to be held for 'questioning'.

I've been instructed by the ponies to inform you, that if the prisoners are not released, they will be forced to use... winter wrap up (WWU)... a weapon of mass cuteness.

Now, I'm sure neither side wants that to happen, so it would be best to consider complying with this.

They're bucking stock for a rodeo, they're wild, unbroken horses. They're thin because they were on the road, I guess.

I use a Sony Alpha a300!

Also, with the little guy and his mother, the stock guy didn't think she was pregnant. Guy was like "No way" and the Rodeo Chairman was like "That horse is PREGNANT" and stock guy was all "Noooope." Lo and behold, there was a colt the next morning.

LittleBlackKitten
Then, Ocalhoun, you are either grossly misinformed, or completely unaware of REAL rodeo as a whole.

Anyone who says rodeo is abusive to animals needs to see a REAL rodeo and stop looking at that animal rights activist slander.

1) Animals are fed a healthy and strict quality diet.
2) Most animals are worth more than your car, and some of them, your house; no animal is intentionally injured or harmed
3) There is STRICT ruling on one animal one time per rodeo rule which states an animal can only EVER be used ONCE per rodeo occasion, be that occasion a weekend, week, or a month long. If a stock contractor violates this, he is generally NEVER used again at a rodeo
4) The animals are only ever in the ring a maximum of 30-45 seconds, after which they are fed, watered, looked at by a vet, and sometimes massaged. Yes, MASSAGED.
5) Pain compliance (eg, prods) is NEVER used against animals, only in life-threatening situations where the life of a human is being threatened, and if it happens, a full investigation is launched.
6) Animal Psychologists state that the animals understand they are WORKING animals and are NOT being "stressed" or "tortured".
7) All rodeo stock are access controlled via security measures, so that no one has access to hurt or harm the animals.
8 ) Anyone found abusing the animals are fired, charged, and blacklisted, be they staff, visitor, vet, or a cowboy.
9) Most money from a rodeo's profits go back into the stock, the grounds, and the upkeep.
10) Anyone dumb enough to think rodeo is abusive needs to be shot.
11) All animals are thoroughly examined before a rodeo and any animal that even has the SLIGHTEST injury is removed from the rodeo as usable stock and is often FLOWN OR DRIVEN OUT for further examination
12) Anyone accessing the stock, be they volunteers, or employees, must be THOROUGHLY known and trusted by past staff, or the DON'T get access. Everyone who crosses those bars MUST be trained to very high standards.

LittleBlackKitten wrote:

This is the one I disagree with.
(Well, besides the obvious #10: nobody should be shot because of what they think.)
Bucking is a stress response; a horse that is not highly stressed won't buck*.

(I also strongly disagree with those who still think that 'breaking' a horse by bucking it out is the way to train it. Bucking horses in a rodeo are subject to the same thing, but without the thin excuse of training; doing it for entertainment only. Not to mention how it glorifies this method of 'training', rather than encouraging more modern, gentler, safer, and more effective methods.)


*It may be possible to train one to buck, but you said that they're "wild, unbroken"... which would seem to preclude training of any kind, much less the intensive training that would be required to get an un-stressed horse to convincingly buck on demand.
LittleBlackKitten
Actually, you're wrong. They buck because an uncomfortable strap is placed over their testicles. It doesn't cause pain, just feels uncomfortable. It's not a stress reaction; it's a "lets get this cowboy and his strap off me so I can make the humans cheer out there."

They also don't break horses that way any more.

AND, Rodeo actually comes from a Spanish pass-time, its a cultural celebration, NOT a breaking ceremony. Its not training.

I am doubtful about the line between 'uncomfortable' and 'stressed'.

Oh, some people do. Some still do.
Some people, especially those who consider themselves experts, can be extremely resistant to changing their ways.
Quote:

Which changes what, exactly? Though I did already know this, I wouldn't care if it was invented by Martians; doesn't change a thing, ethically speaking.
Quote:

A cultural celebration derived from a breaking 'ceremony' (if you can call it that) that was considered training at the time. Its continued practice can reinforce attitudes of those who still consider it training.

Also, for a free bonus, I'll give you some anti-multiculturalism!
Being a 'cultural celebration' is no defense for an unethical act. The subset of Japanese people who slaughter dolphins consider that to be a cultural celebration; doesn't make it right.

Back on the cat theme - just discovered this INTERESTING Post on How to tell your Cat is a Pirate in the Introductions Sub-Forum no less. Author is sunagape:


sunagape wrote:
International Talk Like a Pirate Day is September 19th. In honor of this auspicious day, and to honor my pirate kitty, I have compiled a list of attributes to tell if your cat is a pirate kitty.

1) He, or she, says "arr" a lot. Pirates are very verbal.

2) He, or she, is very affectionate. Pirates like snuggles.

3) He, or she, has at least one behavior that cats don't typically display. Fetching, having other animal species for friends, high tolerance for strangers are all examples of these kinds of behaviors. Pirates are scofflaws.

4) He, or she, likes to steal shiny things. Pirates like shiny things.

5) He ,or she, isn't too particular about the litter box. Enough said.

6) He, or she, enjoys exhibiting feats of great physical prowess. Pirates like to swing from hempen hawsers.

7) He, or she, is primarily a glossy black. Pirates like to look sleek and fancy.

Cool He, or she, will show their fangers when they're happy. Pirates like you to see their pearly whites.

9) He, or she, is exceedingly handsome. Pirates just are.

10) He, or she, loves to play with water. D'uh.

11) He, or she, will bite you very gently but very often. Pirates are ferocious.

I hope this list will help you determine if your kitty is a pirate. Let me know; pirates like to band together.

The body of this thread is the background of hijacking that occurs on the forums, and I decided to make something constructive out of it, much like the artist saw a round head in the opening of the tunnel.

Now, your posts are like each piece of the face. They have nothing in common, and most resemble the light bulbs that are on the guys cheek. If you look up close you can't see the whole picture, and the light bulbs look out of place, but when you back up you realize that the artist has used completely different objects, all are "out of place" but when examined as a whole you get a really cool picture.

This has been one of my favorite threads! Keep trying to make it pointless fun!

I much prefer the Powerpuff Girls to MLP. I didn't like it at first, but it grew on me cause they totally kick butt! Smile Usually came on cartoon network around the time that Johnny Bravo came on, so I usually ended up watching a bit.

Somehow I think the pony craze among men in particular is fairly limited to MLP, at least from what I have seen. Although there may be some branching out of the metro-sexuality that bleeds over into the other effeminate children's programming, one would think that it's fairly limited since being effeminate doesn't seem to be the real attraction. Liking MLP, for some, appears to be another way of being bold and daring, and the chicks dig it too so it's a win/win situation for guys who have, up until now, secretly enjoyed MLP.

My sister is pretty much single handedly responsible for me not really ever being able to get into MLP, as she drove it into the ground for years on end -- not that I'm trying, mind you. All the pony action has desensitized me, so I can participate, but eventually it always goes too far, and I have to throw on some Man vs. Wild (Bear Grills) so I don't have an aneurysm or some other horrible affliction. Smile

Strangely I did pass the MLP smile test, and no one was more surprised than me! I actually loled at the end! Something about after all the song was over the donkey still didn't smile made me laugh really hard. I dunno.
deanhills
Thing is that the MLP series are completely changing as a result of bronies. Season 2 of the Lauren Faust era (she's no longer involved) shows how much it has changed to cater for bronies more than 5-year olds. You can check YouTube and places like Deviantart.com and it's anything but kid stuff any longer.

Not that I want to defend MLP. Each to their own and I can understand it is not really for every one. The power puff girls do however look great and I should check them out.

The entry to the VIP section cost 95 EUR per person, seats to watch the matches, food and drinks included. I was invited by the company I work for, so I did not have to pay.
I went there with 2 colleagues from the Ukraine. One of them said driving posh cars and displaying wealth is a must in the Ukraine to be taken seriously be others.
Which makes me wonder whether the rich people in your vicinity display their wealth in a similarly obscene or rather decent way (which is what I am used to...).

I like this as a true hijack. It pays not attention to where we've been before, takes us somewhere new, and ask unrelated social questions. Quite a jem of a hijack.

Yes, they do, and it's pretty human to display wealth if you have it. Also this effect comes from just having money. If you have money you will spend it. You end up with things that people without money cannot afford.

OK, but my question really was about being decent when spending it. Hamburg (my hown town) has the highest number of millionaires per capita in Germany but at the same time a good tradition of understatement. You will have to look very hard to see Ferraris or Maseratis over here while in other German cities such as Munich or Düsseldorf that is considered acceptable. Also people aren't dreaming of buying golden water tabs like in Dubai or elsewhere. So my question really was: how decently do rich people behave where you live?
IceCreamTruck
kaysch wrote:

I used to live in Munich, or in small town right outside, and I know what you mean. I used to love to go to Munich and look at all the awesome cars. There were definitely a lot in Munich, and I would see exotic cars every time I went downtown, and I was sure to look for them.

I currently live in lexington, KY. This is the home of bratty rich kids, and HUGE horse farms, racing clubs, and extravagant events geared towards the rich displaying their wealth to which your average citizen is most likely not going to be extended an invitation.

Some of the rich here live humble lives even though they have access to lots of money, but mostly there is a segregation between the rich and the poor and that means the rich keep to the rich and then there is everyone else. They keep to themselves because they go to private schools, and live in gated communities.

I'd say it's average here. There is some flaunting of wealth, but I wouldn't imagine that it's anything like Dubai, or Munich.
deanhills
I live in the UAE. I'm not sure whether any one here is really flaunting their riches. They're more like enjoying what they have and maybe not spending it very wisely at all times. Family means a lot here as well as buying gifts for family and friends. So someone would go to great lengths and expense to buy gifts, either for themselves or for their family and loved ones.

Nationals here prefer to drive very expensive cars. And don't keep them for long. So one will find the most up to date in four-wheel drives here, particularly Toyota and Nissan, but all the well known four-wheel drive brands of the world. There are many sports cars as well, but not as many as one would expect.

I agree it is surprising. I actually thought purple would win for a few reasons, one of which is not the fact that I like purple. I sort of avoid purple... I dunno. Just not one of my colors, even though I am fully aware it is the color of royalty.

Blue and Purple are currently tied at 6 if you ignore "All of the above" which is at 9. No one likes "up!" and that is surprising too! Whatever happened to aiming high?

BTW, we can make the Hubble deep space view (pictured) into a game. Can you point out the 4 individual stars that are in the photo? There are only four individual stars. The rest of the stars pictured are a part of a full galaxy of stars. I found three of them. Hint: they are the crosses

Also interesting to note is that the long slender orange galaxy in the upper right quadrant is part of the visible proof of dark matter, as only an immense amount of gravity can produce this distortion, and the amount of gravity it takes happens to be greater than the mass of any visible objects between here and there. They have proven that the galaxy is not located where it appears, but is, in fact, behind a large amount of dark matter, and the gravity of the dark matter causes it to appear higher and distorted, when in reality it's lower, and behind a cluster of galaxies that this proves are all embedded in a larger mass of dark matter. I think that's really cool. They have explained it well enough that this is the best example we have for "viewing" dark matter which does not interact with the electromagnetic spectrum, and is otherwise impossible to see.

These images did not load. I viewed them via the URL. Do you like ice climbing, Dean? I really don't like the thought of ice climbing. Mountain climbing is bad enough because it's cold, but ice climbing has other risks that I feel make it completely not worth it. Ice climbing is unusually dangerous, and a little bit crazy if you ask me.

I would love to be at the top of Mt. Everest, provided it's a good warm day, or to be able to say that I have climbed Everest, but going up or coming down completely illuminates the joy for me. Two Serpas (sp?) have died on the mountain just recently, among other less cold adapted people, and that to me says just how harsh the mountain really is.

Have any of you at least seen Mt. Everest, assuming no one on frihost has actually climbed it?
deanhills
I love reading about people climbing mountains, like Joe Simpson with "Touching the Void". I've also read all of his other novels. All of them were kickass quality. I'm not in that class of mountain climbing however. Last mountain I tackled was a few years ago in Namibia. It's sort of a once in a long while fun thing. If you haven't seen Joe Simpson's movie .... here's a sample of it as well as introduction to Joe Simpson and Simon Yates:

This topic never ceases to amaze me. I had no idea at the time how much hijacking people wanted to do, and I hope it's become a good outlet for people who want to say off topic things in other threads.

I wonder how many people actually still read all the crazy directions this topic has taken. If you are reading this now, and you've taken the time to read from the beginning just recently then I am amazed that you've followed thus far. I hope that new comers are inspired to hijack as well, as we make a play for creating the most diverse thread ever.

Ha, talking about the thread itself may derail other topics, but not this one! I have faith that more and more hijacking will occur, and I am happy to be along for the ride. Happy Hijacking!

It looks real... real, smart! I don't think it's a miniature or a model, but probably just somewhere that someone had ample time to prevent damage. Obviously this person spent a while knowing that the water was coming and decided to do something about it. Insurance companies love this kind of stuff, so it was probably done because insurance on the house being expensive allowed for a budget for other considerations. Typically flood plain home insurance is high unless you can prove you are prepared.

The thing that you cannot fake is the water. The waves would not look this way on a model, so it's real. It looks like it is probably in Mississippi or Louisiana.

Darn! It was for real. Just tracked down the story in the Guardian.co.uk. 30 July 2009.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2009/jul/30/motorbike-school-stunt-banned-in-tamil-nadu#


Quote:
A "bravery show" organised by a primary school in Tamil Nadu, India, has been banned after protests from children's rights groups.

A schoolteacher rode a motorbike over pupils' hands as they lay on the ground in a line with their arms outstretched.

The stunt aimed to demonstrate the strength gained by the children from their karate classes. In another display, the teacher rode over a plank placed on top of a schoolgirl lying on the ground.

The public display came to a halt when a relative of the state higher education minister, who was present, intervened.

The headteacher of the government school in the village of Villupuram claimed that parents had consented to the show.

State education authorities have now warned schools not to carry out activities that violate safety guidelines.

This morning my father passed away at the age of 71.

The diagnosis was tongue base carcinoma, with a metastatic spread into liver, lungs and spinal column. It was a struggle over almost 2,5 years. What a relief to see he finally made it...
Strange to see that with so much scientific progress there still does not seem to be any working treatment against cancer.

Did anyone see the end of the world is near? Oh dear - and all these pictures are helping. At least I'd die with a smile on my face.

What would you do if you were 100% sure that the world was going to end on the 21st December? I know I'd probably do stuff that if the world wouldn't end, I wish it had.... so, because the chances are the world is going to keep on rockin' as it has through every apocalypse, I am guessing I won't be ruining my life. Not this time anyway.

Thanks deanhills. Yeah, you said it. The people left behind have to deal with it. And although his death was a relief this is probably never easy for the relatives. My mum will probably start having a hard time once all the organisation that becomes necessary is done. That's at least what I expect. Well, we'll see.

This thread will be three years old on May 4th! Smile Hard to believe it's been going this long. We're probably going to run up against the maximum length a thread can be well before it gets to be 100, or 103 years old.

You can see the way the internet is going. It used to be the single greatest human achievement in global literacy since the invention of the printing press, but the faster and more bandwidth the internet has it's slowly becoming more pictures and videos, and its affect on spreading literacy is declining which means that one day the face of the internet will be very different indeed.

This is a steam driven a portable power take-off (from the early 1900's) to drive like a well pump or harvestor, etc. Notice the huge pulley/flywheel to drive whatever auxiliary equipment that needs to be run. This is not 'plow' tractor.

exactly! What he needs to do is get a barrel and strap that to the front of his tractor and fill it with water. That might at least help keep the front end down for turning. He could also put a wheel on the front of the trailer that would prevent the fold that picks up the front of the tractor.

I'm guessing that all he has to do is slow down and the front will drop to the ground for turning, but that is an assumption.

Yes, there are many ways in which it could be hijacked. I will enumerate possibilities just for fun:

  1. A mod closes it for it breaking the rules. I can't recall any rule against it, but it would be an impediment for the future 'hijacking' of the thread.
  2. Everyone stops posting. This would certainly be against the theme of the topic, since it requires someone to post off-topic stuff.

Yes, there are many ways in which it could be hijacked. I will enumerate possibilities just for fun:

  1. A mod closes it for it breaking the rules. I can't recall any rule against it, but it would be an impediment for the future 'hijacking' of the thread.
  2. Everyone stops posting. This would certainly be against the theme of the topic, since it requires someone to post off-topic stuff.

I was thinking whether my, and ratanegra's (and now your's =P) meta-discussion of this thread is a valid hijacking as well.

If we hijack it in the usual sense, then we are doing what is requested originally by the thread.
But if we don't, then we are being on-topic (including our current discussion), but the topic says we shouldn't Think
It's a version of the liar's paradox to me.

This thread used to be the funniest and surprising thread we have had over here for a long time. I'm afraid it will die unless I post something over here.

So let me re-start this thread by picking a new topic which is so boring that it would be a pleasure if somebody else could come up with something complete different.

My parents used to have terriers for a long time.

I have always wondered why. Terriers are noisy, aggressive and nerve-breaking dogs. Looking at the picture above you will understand what I mean. The dogs my parents used to have were always barking at other dogs, bikes and very often at people intruding their territory. On top of that they were pulling the rope when being taken for a walk almost to the point of suffocation. So bad education added up to the stresss I was experiencing.

Why would anybody buy a terrier? My parents never gave me a good reason for this. Maybe you can?

Those are 'handy' (laugh) for picking up leaves to put them in a container but not for raking. The county leaf vacuum came Monday and took all the leaves I had put along side the street.

Wow, that's a good service, we have to take ours to a recycling centre a few miles away in my part of the UK. The council sweeper lorries do clear the roads pavements/sidewalks each week for anything which falls on 'their' land and I know some folk do dump their leaves in the dead of night to save a journey!

Haha .... shows you how much I know about raking.

OK ... here's a great idea under development for how to use those leaves ...

standready
My county picks up the leaves to keep people from burning them and the resulting pollution. Now this guy wants you to burn them inside inside your home to help heat it and release the smoke, carbon-monoxide and toxins possibly in the glue inside?
Oh, I can hear my carbon-monoxide monitor beeping it's warning already!

Haha .... a new "healthy" version of "sniffing glue" indeed. But yes, not a workable solution.

So here's another suggestion. Don't rake the leaves but mulch them. That way you can "feed your lawn" at the same time?

I do mulch some of the leaves into the lawn but too much is harmful so I rake. Some leaves go into my compost pile and the rest go by the road for the county to pick up. I still have one tree that refuses to drop it's leaves. Those will go into my compost pile along with the 'skins' of my black walnuts.
Speaking of walnuts, I have started 'skinning' and drying. Still have 2 - 33 gallon trash full to work on then need to remove from shells. Lots of work but good eating.

Definitely my favourite of the nuts. Apparently one of the healthiest too. Well done! Cool

So do you get to hibernate after all of this hard work, or is this when the snow shoveling is starting?

My favorite nuts also especially if I could get someone else to do all the work collecting, skinning, remove from shells etc. Of course I could just go to the store and buy them.

No snow yet that needed a shovel. It will come soon enough though.

Good question. My take on it is that the car was stolen when he happened to be in the car. But the car was a target because he was much older. So maybe a combo of both.

Really it can mean both. However usually people arn't interested in the person in the car so much as the car itself. Way easier to steal a car that is already running.

Let's say you want to Link to a specific Topic, all you need to do is to click on the little icon left of the posted date.
This will append the #name of the post to the topic URL and gives you a direct link to the topic

I have always thought it was for SEO purposes. Pages with a lot of content rank better than pages with very little content, and it also prevents a lot of pages from having the same title. Now I think Google is probably smart enough to figure out that the thread pages belong together that it shouldn't be necessary, at least if the rel="prev" and rel="next" markup is used.

Lawyers have their own secret code that uses the English words but not actual language. That is how they keep themselves in business (as translators). Example: US Patents are to be written such that a child with elementary school education could understand and reproduce them.

Excellent! Smile I knew I could count on this thread being in the capable hands of Standready and Deanhills while I was gone.

BTW, there are 1042 "a"s before the "o", but I may have cheated a little bit. You have to be specific with programmers, cause we cheat when we can.

Highjack this topic by telling us about your first cellphone. I have to find my old model... It was Ericsson. You had to turn it sideways to play Tetris

Found it:
Ericsson T28 World

I loved this phone. It fit in my pocket so well
deanhills
Mine's a Nokia 1100. I still have it - I so much liked it at the time because of its fantastic battery life, low price and durability I got three of them. One for use in my country of residence UAE, one for traveling to Oman, which I used to do on a more regular basis, and one for traveling overseas. Then last year had to change because technology changes and got an al cheapo Nokia 100. Not as good as the Nokia 1100 in design as really REALLY plastic and maybe even along the disposable lines. Hopefully in the next number of months I'll upgrade to a smart phone. As I may be unemployed after October, and my communications will have to be more mobile.

This topic really bugs me!


deanhills
Speaking of bugs, bugs have been very much on my mind right up to tonight. Just had a termite issue. The termites here are ones that like to chew their way through concrete and foundations and made their presence known in a little store room under my stairs, like with a vengeance. Don't think this place I'm staying in is going to last long, as every one is having the problem in our compound, so instead of treating it at its roots so to speak, they are spraying anti-termite stuff. The spray helped probably temporarily and at least the store room looks OK again cleaned up of the debris and freshly painted, but in the foundation I'm sure it doesn't look pretty.

No way! Shocked Just read this article and totally changed my education. Termites don't chew through concrete, but they find gaps to squeeze through, enlarging them. They use dirt to cover themselves. Interesting!

Yes, as your article reference points out, Termites don't eat concrete (that would be frightening) but squeeze through cracks. Now, if you have some wood (especially damp or rotting) for them chew on in the rest of structure then look out.
Where I live, carpenter ants attack wood just like termites do.

There was wood nearby and they didn't go for it. BUT they did go for the cardboard boxes of my DVD and LCD. Which I guess is wood to a certain extent. Anyway, looks as though the pest control's spray has frightened them off for now. I've painted the little store area out, and for now it looks OK again. Much emptier than before. I'm not storing any card board boxes though, all of the ones that had been in the front of the store room and termite free, I've removed to the top floor cupboards of my town house.

You're right. They love damp and moist and it is VERY dry there. I noticed more, so will have to call pest control in the morning. I also noticed some on top of the door frame of my front door. That door frame is probably going to be toast soon ...

That's a great looking tree Stand. Looks like a nice neighbourhood as well.

Here's mine. Not much green, and that which is green is surrounded by walls. No parks, and no statuesque trees. Not healthy either as people around here burn their construction debris, so wood smoke hanging around if there is no wind, which often happens. No rain of course either. Quality of water not very good. I've gotta have my head read to be living here!!! Brick wall

Ok, chaning the subject again as that is what this topic is all about.
I have been showing around a friend of mine from Vietnam around Northern Germany for 2 weeks and we have taken zillions of photos. I don't want to buy any hardware, so where can I store them so she can download all of them when she is back in Vietnam? Webspace should be free and reliable, and Frihost is out of the discussion. Right now I am using Microsoft's OneDrive that comes free with my hotmail account but I am afraid the space will not be sufficient. Any idea?
deanhills
Try dropbox. That should work just fine.
https://www.dropbox.com/

I also use shutterfly.com

What I like about shutterfly is one can create a gallery and share photos through a Web portal that is free and where you can control who can download the photos. It has some rich features included.

Dropbox is more like a storage place that you can also share with friends. But will probably work much faster if you have little time for setting things up. Shutterfly may take slightly longer initially as you have to wade your way through too many features, but once set up it works like a charm and can look really professional.

Thanks deanhills. I am using dropbox but find the very limited webspace quite annoying. Actually OneDrive is not so bad. This morning I found out that I can use it just like Dropbox linking it to Windows Explorer, but compared to Dropbox it gives me more space.
Thanks for the tip about Shutterfly. I never heard about it before. "Free unlimited secure photo storage" and "we will never delete your photos" sounds good. I will experiment a little with that website.
deanhills
You're right Kaysch. The limited space in Dropbox can be annoying. To tell the truth, I haven't really taken that much to Dropbox. But Shutterfly I really like. Just takes a little time to set it up first. Once set up however it works very well.

I have seen this a couple of times before, and I always wondered what it means until I found the Wikipedia entry.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorem_ipsum
So what you quote is an excerpt from Marcus Tullius Cicero's "On the ends of good and evil" written in 45 BC. The text centers on why people seek pleasure or avoid pain. What Wikipedia does not explain however is why the Latin text got scrambled so badly. But it consoles me that it's not because I forgot all my Latin that I don't understand the text. It's really because there are mistakes in the text... Very Happy

I don't mind noise when there is a rhythm to it. The noise I can't handle is unpredictable unrhythmatic dead noise. I'm not very partial to vacuum cleaner noise. Can't understand how in our age of great technology someone hasn't designed a vacuum cleaner yet that makes no noise. Now there's definitely some money to be made. Or a vacuum cleaner whose noise is processed as music or something. You put a CD disk in, and the noise comes out as music.

You're right Blaster. Just checked and the www is also counted as a browser. A large number of browsers preceded IE. The browsers we count as "browsers" currently started in nineties, and Opera was before IE. Here's a picture of the nineties timeline:

Allow me.. your above browser timeline is really bogus, Dean ! no offense..

I created a browser in 1983-1984. For me and some collegue amateurs on 27 Mc packet radio, platform was Tandy TRS-80 model III, in Basic.

Alas, I haven't kept a screen print (or photograph) of my version... but it looked quite similar to this one below.. it had a "DIR" option too. Press D Razz

Others could use it to download and immediately store on casette tape and run a .BAS file on another TRS-80 computer,



Baudrate was 300-900 Baud (that is 30-112 bytes per second) depending on atmospheric conditions

Maybe nice to note.. that some of the code in my TRS-80 L III was written in Z-80 assembly, by a person named B. Gates.

Jump out while car's at speed and risk that kind of injury versus being burnt to death or burnt and maybe never recover from the burns?

Truck caught fire about 5 minutes after he got home. At least he did not park in the driveway which is along side the house or in the garage.
Ford has had several issues like this over the years.
That's weird. How does it happen when a truck is not turned on? Was it vandalism?

Not vandalism. Ford has had several issues that cause these fires. search "Ford 150 fire" to read some horror stories and causes.

If I had one of those I'd insist on a replacement with something different. I wouldn't be able to trust Ford ever again. All of those reports are out of this world - can't believe that happened! Real baddie for Ford.

From another manufacturer - no less. Despite all those problems and reports, people still purchase those trucks and they have had issues going back at least five years.
deanhills
Looks as though Ford is not alone with fire hazards. Searched on cars with fire hazards and there are others like Toyota and Nissan and probably more. Wonder how with their careful research when they manufacture new models, they can miss something like this? Don't they have a "beta stage"where people get to try the models out first? Or do different manufacturing standards apply when the models are first built (to impress) compared with when they go into full scale mass production?

Careful research with the thousands of parts made by different sub-manufacturers - not going to happen. Rely on each component manufacturer by provide safe parts (think air bags).
No, manufacturers that I know of do "beta" cars but then we have seen how well beta testing does in software anyway.

Follow up on this truck. Fire chief concluded that fire was caused by fuel filter leaking gas on to the exhaust.

Thanks Dean. Maple will make a nice campfire once it dries out.
The Popular has a friend in my back yard that was put the ground three weeks ago!

Getting them out of small container into ground allows them to really grow. The one above added 7 inches just this last weeks.
These hybrid Poplars can grow up to 10 feet per year.

They taste great Stand. I'm almost certain they've been cultivated for tasting great, looking great, lasting long. The skin is slightly tough to my liking. And I don't have complete trust in the tomato. I'm firmly convinced if it can't get rotten, then it can't be very natural. I haven't seen any of those tomatoes getting rotten ever. Their skin gets slightly wrinkled and then they get quite soft if I leave them out of the fridge - which I prefer to do, but they never rot.

On the other hand I've been thinking. Maybe if they don't rot, the ingredients to get them to have the appearance of health, could work for me too? Razz

So I received the poinsettia in a 4 inch pot last year for Christmas. In April, it looked like it was almost gone. I stuck it in the outside planter and it took off as you can see.

My gardening is limited to a very hardy Bougainvillea that has just about taken over my front porch, presently growing tall past my bedroom window on the second floor, and also taking over my neighbour's space. I was totally impressed when it continued to bloom during the hot summer months. Normally it completely loses its blooms and leaves, but this summer it just kept on blooming and growing as it has never grown before. I've been feeding it a special tonic, just a bottle of it over two to three weeks about a year ago, and haven't seen a plant as appreciative as this one. I'll try and take a photo of it tomorrow to show what it looks like.

Talking about the weather, this morning when I went out for a run, couldn't believe it. It was raining. We get rain probably 6 times plus or minus in the year, and mostly in January. There were only a few drops though, but long enough to wet everything and create a nice drizzle while I was out. And then to make it even more interesting. Tonight again a few drops more.

Also, usually the rain doesn't come in a nice drizzle. More like a huge dust storm first turning everything upside down, then a rain huge storm with wind that drenches everything to the equivalent of a cloud burst for about 15 minutes tops and then it's all over. Haven't had one like that this year yet.

You're probably going to think this hilarious, but we've just had two consecutive days of the worst cloud bursts I've ever seen in the UAE. Flooding everywhere. Trees destroyed. Schools and universities closed for two days. My town house floors were under water.

The weirdest thing for me was when I was mopping up my town house last night, I was cleaning up what I thought would be a one-off freak occurrence. Then today exactly the same thing. Exactly the same time - like a brutal storm raging, worse than the one of the day before. I had to double mop tonight. Very difficult to travel home as roads submerged under water. And today our offices at work got flooded as well. Carpets drenched completely. We were chased out just before end of day as they were worried there may be a fire.

Stand, I don't think the townhouses here have been built to last, in the same way they are built to last in other parts of the world. Problem is they built the townhouse complex on top of an old drainage system as well as outdated piping, so right from the beginning they were permanently digging up portions of the compound to fix pipes. So the roads in the complex aren't all even, you can see them leaning the one way or the other because of what is going on below with the pipes and parts of the road sinking. With the heavy rains of course there were huge portions of the roads, particularly at the entry points of the town houses that were completely under water.

The window frames were the ones that leaked the most, as the very strong rain that was blowing at an angle, pressed hard against the frame and found its way in through cavities in between the structure, the windows and concrete. I also have a vent in the kitchen that was pounded by the rain and got in, but the worst in the kitchen was the drainage system outside the kitchen that hasn't been built to take lots of water. It made the drain hole in my kitchen lift and overflow. First day on Tuesday, was more or less OK with a good degree of mopping but manageable, but the second day on Wednesday was lots of hard work, and you're right, probably if this should happen again, it will be worse as the window frames must have been damaged.

Looks as though it's from south western US in California and Mojave Desert.
Quote:
Yucca plants are tree-like succulents of the lily family (Liliaceae) with stemless stiff, pointed leaves that end in a sharp needle. The Joshua tree, the namesake of Joshua Tree National Park near Palm Springs, California, is believed to have been named by Mormon settlers because the plant's angular branches resembled the outstretched arms of Joshua leading them out of the desert. The yucca flower is a series of white or purple blossoms on a long stalk.
Source: http://www.encyclopedia.com/topic/yucca.aspx

Interesting article in the link above includes the non-medicinal and medicinal uses of the Yucca by native Indian tribes.

The Parents had the battery replaced in their car. They could not get the clock set or the radio to work. Dad said had tried several times to set the clock and radio did not work. They ask me to try. I get out the manual and follow instructions to set clock- nothing. I check the fuse just to make sure. Fuse was fine.
There was an error code on the radio display. So back to the manual to find what code was. Discovered a section called Theft Prevention. "If radio loses power, a security code must be entered to re-activate." I show this to my mom. Then my Dad chimes in "I entered the code xxxxxx and it did not work.
He never said anything about having entered a code. Grrrrowl!!!!
I went back out to the car found the code (which was what Dad had said) and entered it - radio started playing then set the clock. Go figure! GGRRrrowl!

I wish we had four seasons in Venezuela. All we get are two seasons. Rainy and dry. Next to the northern Winter it gets kinda cold here, at most 5 grades less than normal (°C), and in july and august, we get a bit of heat. At most around 4 grades more than normal. Our trees lose the same amount of leaves the whole year. Right now it's rainy season, which means that everyday it starts normal, then at noon we get some clouds, and in the afternoon we wish Noah were still here to rescue us from the great floods in our streets.

What most people, including me, love about our climate is that we can wear almost the same thing all year without worrying about ever feeling too cold or too hot. We don't have a great variety of clothes. Some sweaters for the cold mornings in January and the extra AC rooms and that's basically it. What some dislike it's that it's overall a bit hotter than humans like it at noon and in the afternoon, but it's nothing too noteworthy, I guess.

Everything tends to be cheap here. However, there is a lot of criminality so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I'm actually thinking of moving out of the country, just like many people (we call it the Venezuelan Exodus).

Hmmm, budget. The minimum monthly salary is about 25 bucks, so I'd say that's the minimum you need to survive, but it's not a very pleasant life. I'd say that USD $80 gives you a comfortable life for a month. You can rent a place, get some food to cook, move through public transportation (which is almost for free). My dad sustains our whole family with around 500 bucks a month. That pays for car reparations, house maintenance, food, some sweet stuff for our palates. Education is free here, also transportation. So the budget is very flexible depending on the life standards you want to have.

By the way, I'd only recommend someone moving here if they have enough to pay for a bodyguard or two. I'm pretty sure it's cheap enough that a minimum salary American citizen could pay for it, I think. With a bodyguard the rest is just very easy an safe, I guess. Well, outside the capital city there are electrical outages and in the capital city there isn't much water everyday, but that can be fixed with a good water tank.

So to sum up, it's cheap but not the best experience unless you're willing to make an effort to build your safety and comfort with well-placed investments.

OK got it. Today when I asked someone from Portugal about Venezuela, she said that (a) they don't speak much Portuguese in Venezuela any longer and (b) it's a dangerous country to live in - the latter came very spontaneous and very certain. Like no one goes there. Smile
