Seems like I'd been looking in the wrong places for all those years...  ;)

(That article is ridiculous - of course, it's "The Sun" - nobody has been looking "for 2000 years", the Grail legends appeared much later...)

What are you doing, reading The Sun? :1f635:  Don't you know that this sort of rag erodes the IQ? :P  It's like a gradual lobotomy. :1f636:

Yeah, I know you're using lots of effective antidotes, and sometimes one just has to look into the cesspool because to completely ignore it isn't healthy either, plus critiquing the cesspool tends to generate new and useful neural connections... but you handed me a spoon, so I needed to stir!  ;)

No of course not, the link was brought to my attention on FB when the daughter of a "serious" (ahem) Grailhunter shared it with her dad... his comment was "I can get the bus", seeing he does not live too far from Hounslow.  :lol:

Not too surprisingly, even the Daily Mail can do a better article than the "Sun"...

Seems like Chris Rea heard me (when I said he needn't drive off this year)...

An insanely entertaining documentary on the history of food, complete with dress-ups!  Old favourite.  :cool

Thanks to the "subtitles" I did understand most of it!  :smth023

There's a fun article in The Guardian about Australian place names:

They forgot about Denmark, Western Australia, and Dootown, Tasmania, and our favourite, Lower Crackpot, also in Tasmania:

For f*ck's sake, I can't f***in' stop myself from sharing this sh!t with you:

QuoteIf you've ever wondered how profanity actually became profane, Nicolas Cage is here to help you out. The actor is no stranger to swearing, but in Netflix's upcoming show History of Swear Words he'll be doing it in a more educational way. Though, if the trailer's indicative of what the show is going to be like, it'll still be very entertaining.

QuotePlace one clock at the top of a mountain. Place another on the beach. Eventually, you'll see that each clock tells a different time. Why? Time moves slower as you get closer to Earth, because, as Einstein posited in his theory of general relativity, the gravity of a large mass, like Earth, warps the space and time around it.

Scientists first observed this "time dilation" effect on the cosmic scale, such as when a star passes near a black hole. Then, in 2010, researchers observed the same effect on a much smaller scale, using two extremely precise atomic clocks, one placed 33 centimeters higher than the other. Again, time moved slower for the clock closer to Earth.

Years ago, when pocket books on positivity and light were all the rage and around every bookshop counter, Kaz Cooke published a delightful little thing called something like The Pocket Book Of Negatives (out of print now and I can't find it anywhere).  It was a negative thought for every circumstance.  :lol:

I thought to myself:  What would I write about, were I to write a pocket book?  And essentially, it's this:


COOKING WITH AN IRON

...emergency cookery when you have no other means of cooking available, say in a motel room.  Here's a verbal sketch - if there's any able illustrators reading, I could be persuaded to do a collaboration!  :)


Toast

Cotton setting, 2 minutes each side - more depending on bread type and desired amount of caramelisation.


Eggs Sunny Side Up

Use medium setting.  Hold iron upside down and perfectly level.  Crack up to two eggs onto the iron's surface (you may require an assistant, or a bench vise and spirit level).  Cook 3 minutes.  Extend time for less runny yolks.  Slide eggs onto toast for low-mess eating.


Toasted Cheesies

Open sandwiches are not recommended here, as it would necessitate tedious post-cooking cleaning of the iron or the opposing surface.  Use two thin slices of bread, sandwich them around the cheese, and apply the iron (cotton setting) to first one side, then the other, until the cheese is melted and the bread surface has caramelised to your liking.  The process can be accelerated by the simultaneous use of two irons.


Steaks

Cotton setting, 5 minutes each side, for medium rare.  Decrease time accordingly for rare, increase time for well done; 30 minutes each side will give you good shoe leather.


Roast Chicken

Insert iron, wrap chicken in alfoil, cotton setting with steam, 4 hours.  (Time may vary depending on size of chicken.  Roast turkey can be accomplished with this method but takes a little longer.)


Vegetables

Cook using steam setting.


Notes for Lamb or Mutton

Brett says it's very important to use the wool setting when cooking lamb or mutton.
