    What happened today that neither pissed you off nor made you happy but is nevertheless noteworthy?

    I used to enjoy eating out all the time. My fridge was empty. It still is - as I only buy what I cook and I am on the road most of the time. My sensitivity to salt in my old age and the fact that my brother had a baby meant 90 minutes at a restaurant with moderate levels of noise is all I can...

    The greatest long term threats facing humanity This is depressing. Even after we fix climate change, an ice age will descend on us. And then after that the sun starts peetering out and our biosphere will be destroyed. I almost lost the will to leave when I got to the end of the article.

    I was at a cooking demonstration last night. This must have been some kind of beginner class. People had never tried rapini before. They needed steps to make roasted potatoes tossed in oregano, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Some bloke there kept getting confused because the chef did a few...

    Why do we need to always flip the gender or race of an established canon? It's like that Ocean's X movie with women instead of men. Go create your own franchise and your own story instead of trying to imitate some piece of work that was written for an English man to play. What's next? We...

    I meant to say miracles of science. Freudian slip there a bit. I dragged 300 jewel cases from one county to the city so it can be recycled. Hopefully some third world country accepts it and the babies of today get an extra minute to live because a sea turtle didn't die.
