  1. I've never enjoyed fois gras for the same reason I've never enjoyed veal: I keep thinking of how it was created. I don't think laws are necessarily the answer, but at the same time, I don't really have much sympathy for people that are up in arms about it. Yeah, it's just a duck/goose, but I believe in karma. Also, anything that raises the hackles of the fois gras and caviar crowd appeals to my rebellious streak, for whatever reason. Maybe those people can spend their fois gras budget on some food for hurricane refugees.

    Ayran

    I'm Armenian, so our name for Ayran is "Tahn." I usually drink it as it, with some mint leaves on top.

    Iron Chef America (Part 1)

    This episode was pretty good. Tsai won hands down, I thought. Flay's dishes weren't really inovative, thought I thought the hash looked pretty good (I'm partial to anything with an egg on it.) The challenger's dishes were all sublime, though. I thought the judges were better this time around, Allen really knows his stuff. All in all, I'm pleased with this series so far.

    Iron Chef America (Part 1)

    I saw the show, and it was cool to see new episodes, but Bayless definitely should've won. I was salivating at Baylesses dishes, but I think diabetes would be in my future after finishing a full course of flay's shit. It just looked like too-sweet fake-ass southwestern shit, while Bayless stayed traditional, which will always win in my book. The show didn't deviate from my expectations, the judges are still pretty annoying though. That Rosengarten dude reminds me of a pig. I'm looking forward to seeing more battles with Batali and Morimoto though, those fellas have some skills.
  5. I don't know anything about beef quality and fat content, but the meat should be semi cheap. Other than that, about a quarter-pound patty, extra-sharp cheddar cheese, toasted bun, lettuce, and mayo (and mushrooms if they're around), and some sriacha sauce. Preferably with fries made in oil that hasn't been changed in a while, and some kind of pale ale.

    Nasty Little Habits

    Speaking of Subway, after many drunken nights of complaining about the too-small breakfast sandwiches, my friend Justin convinced our local Subway to fill a sub with chopped breakfast sausage patties and eggs- great after killing a nine-dollar case of American Ice.

    Dinner! 2005

    I've been guilty of this in the past. It's just that the food sounds so amazing! Don't forsake us, Jinmyo!

    Iron Chef

    My mom got ahold of some bison meat once and made these, they were really good, not dry at all.

    Iron City to use aluminum bottles

    I had one of these Iron Citys, they were 1.10 for a single so I grabbed one to go with the rest of my purchases. The beer tasted fine (as fine as IC can taste) and was acceptably cold, though I don't nurse my beer. All in all, a cool gimmick, especially after my friend drilled holes into it and made it into a pipe. And it sure does hit!

    Chewing the Blubber!

    I've never had the chance to eat whale, though I'd wholeheartedly imbide if given the chance. As long as the species isn't endangered, who cares? I am as much an environmentalist as anyone else, but I really can't see a logical argument against eating a (non-endangered species) whale. I mean, we are not using the whale for pet food or makeup, we are using it for the same thing other humans have, i.e. sustenance. I don't like people using arbitrary moral judgements to tell me what to put or not put in my body (be it whale, pot, tobacco or alcohol). Using the "whales are smart" argument is the same slippery slope fallacy used by the people that tell me they won't eat venison or small game because it's "cute." As long as the animal isn't endangered, I'll eat it, and I'll eat an extra serving for all you vegans.
  11. Dear god that squash looks good. Squash rocks.
  12. Wine! and Milk. Also, those fake-looking sliced black olives (the fresh ones in oil or whatever are fine.)
  13. I'd go with some ham pot pie. The name is sort of misleading, it's wide, not uniformly shaped noodles, salty ham all in gravy. It's good as hell.

    Yuengling Light Lager

    I've tried the light lager, and always thought it had a weird taste to it. This was enough that I elected to just stick with regular lager or black and tan. The regular Yuengling premium ligh isn't bad i guess, just tastes watered down is all.

    All about Tequila

    I have to agree with the "tequila makes crazy" faction. One particular night comes to mind, and honestly, for all the crimes I committed, I didn't remember a thing. I don't drink Tequila anymore because I've always ended up getting rowdy as all hell. But enough of that. The crazy effect may be psychosomatic, but you probably don't remember that when you're piss drunk. Different alcohols cause different moods, and the posts on this topic have at least proved that anecdotally, if not scientifically.
