56 There's one of those Facebook things getting passed around where you take a test and it tells you how liberal/conservative you are. This one dude I know who is a fucking flaming liberal posted that he got 40% conservative, 60% liberal. And he's all like, see I'm totes a moderate, it's just all you rabid right wingers who are extreme.

That test is designed to do this. The results are skewed to make the extreme liberal position seem moderate. This is how the left operates. They're good at it. And the right never has a response.

On another note, the school is posting some pictures of the school orchestra and choir in Europe. One Facebook comment asked, "Is it just me or are their 40 girls and 10 boys? (It's a little hard to tell the gender of all the participants from the little photo) FenelonSpouse said, 40 girls?; I'd want to go too! He was thinking of himself as a teen boy, not as a 60 plus old guy. ;^) Since our son doesn't speak to anyone a lot, the fact that he's outnumbered by girls won't do him much good, not that I'd want his first sexual experience to be as a 16 year old on a school trip when they're supposed to be behaving themselves!!

101 2nd morning in a row I've received a call from Virginia area code CVS pharmacy calling about a prescription for "Jennifer." Didn't answer; they left a message. Weird.

When I tried to get the voice mail, somehow it started calling my mom, which was all right, wanted to confirm she wasn't hit by the twister last night, which she wasn't. But I don't know how I managed to dial her. ("Dial" - isn't that a funny anachronism.)

Then when I hung up on her, music started - a cut that I had last played half a year ago. (Rarely listen to music on the cell.)

What was all that about? Smart phones are dumb; or getting too smart for their own good?

Pair this with the as posted for the "Hamilton" musical specifying non-white people between the ages of 20-30.

Seriously, this is so freakin' illegal and just plain wrong. It violates everything the HR department drills into you about *not* discriminating by age, race, or gender. How is it that it is now OK - no, preferable - to announce these criteria for a university president, SCOTUS nominee, entertainer?

Your response is exactly what I'm talking about. The right always dismisses this sort of stuff as unserious. Same with Hollywood, music, etc. Oh whatever, who cares what some dumb Hollywood bimbo says? Well millions of people care. They are LIVs for a reason remember. And the left owns the LIV market almost exclusively.

Yeah those FB tests are stupid. But millions and millions of people take them and talk about them and post their scores for their friends to see. And if even a tiny fraction of those people are influenced even a little bit by the tests....it helps the left. Now add up all the FB tests, the Holywood bimbos telling the rubes how to vote and every other instance that the right dismisses as unserious, and it adds up over time.

On another note, joncelli I posted earlier this week (I don't know if you saw it) that I went to an evening liturgy at the local Orthodox Church Saturday evening. they were nice. The priest had been a military chaplain for 25 years before he transitioned back to the local church. An elderly woman who greeted me warmly is sending me by e-mail the Orthodox prayers for Great Lent, because of course Easter doesn't happen for the Orthodox for about four more weeks. So it's just goes to show that it's important for church folks to great visitors warmly when they come; It makes a difference.

If we are the body of Christ, we need to be welcoming others in, and helping them understand why its important and wonderful to be a part of the family of God. Too often, we withdraw into our comfort zones, and are unwilling to let anyone else in. I have certainly been guilty of this. So this is a good reminder for me as well.

I have to admit I'm enjoying immensely the specter of these nominal adult college administrators getting skewered on their own petards by the SJW team - who have show they are quite the effective little brown-shirts (I know, microaggression, I ritually denounce myself). I, for one, am having equally as much fun torturing the folks who call me up from my former universities crying poor-mouth and asking for money - with my best sarcasm for the folks calling from the Hippy-Ivy in Providence RI.

The college admin cartel knows who butters their bread and what side it's buttered on. Until the butter (donations from alumni, parents, etc.) stops showing up they have precisely zero incentive to do anything other than following the path of least leftist resistance.

Still fun to watch them twist themselves into little logic pretzels tho.

IIRC, Jackie was brought to Rolling Stone's attention by an Obama staffer who was heading up the WH's push for doing something about the campus "rape epidemic." Jackie had gotten to the big leagues with her rape victimization status, as her case was cited as a prime example of the terrible, rapey men on campus today. I hope that Jackie's WH contact is snagged in all of this lawsuit business, too.

Had a good life in Chicago. Stable situation, nice place to live, lots of in-law relatives including my sainted mom-in-law (now gone), knew how to get around without urban problems.

Gave it all up for... well, I'll just say moving to Oklahoma may be the last good decision I made. But it was a good one.

190 Vegetarianism over generations can result in genetic mutations which increase the risk of heart disease and cancer.

Researchers found a long-term vegetarian diet means populations are more likely to carry DNA that makes them vulnerable to inflammation.

The mutation is believed to make it easier for vegetarians to absorb necessary fatty acids from plants, but also boosts their production of arachidonic acid, which increases inflammatory disease and cancer.

This, coupled with a diet rich in vegetable oils, means the mutated gene turns fatty acids into arachidonic acid.

The problem is also worsened because the mutation obstructs the production of Omega 3, which protects against heart disease.

This is an increasing issue given the shift in people's diets away from fish and nuts, which contain valuable Omega 3, to vegetable oils, which contain the unhealthier Omega 6.

The new findings provide an explanation for previous studies which found that vegetarians were up to 40 per cent more likely to develop bowel cancer than those who eat meat.

The Crusades were relatively easy to carry out, because you could "go there" and fight them. Take back the Holy Land, push the savages back out of the back end of Europe.

It will be much harder to do, right there in the heart of the continent, with them spread to all the disparate lands of the godforsaken place.

Posted by: joncelli, Bridge Troll and Crossbow Afficianado at March 31, 2016 11:23 AM (PjWy4)

Brother, any step you take towards the Lord is a good one in my completely unbiased opinion. Besides ,Jesus said that we must become as little children so baby steps are good. :^) However, if you feel like you're "slogging": and you're starting with the OT, don't do that. It's all the Bible and it all has truth, but if you're slogged down in Deuteronomy or Leviticus, for instance that can be rough going. If I may make a suggestion-start with the Psalms and the Gospel of John. I am glad that you have a study Bible.

The Orthodox Church is very different-even from the RCC which I had been to. They stand up the entire time although there were seats and there's no kneeling but a lot of bowing and crossing themselves-but Orthodox do it from right to left and not left to right. There's also a lot on incense and they entire service is chanted or sung. I got a good sense of the awesome majesty of God. Obviously I can't go on Sunday mornings (which is when the "big" service is) but I told the nice woman that I would be back next Saturday evening.

I say this as an ex-New Yorker.

New Yorkers' ideas of pizza are stupid. They have a foldy crust thing that you're supposed to fold in half and eat by hand. They're so greasy that the grease spills off on your shirt and tie.

They get all judgy if you don't eat pizza their way, which is to say with cheese falling out after you take a bite and all the good pepperoni and sausage sliding about on the crust and falling on the floor.

Italians in Italy eat pizza with a knife and fork.

257 Several years ago, my husband and mother and I went on a trip that included a day in Naples. Part of the tour was pizza for lunch. Since there were three in our party, the tour guide sat with us as we were served our pizzas.

My mother has always eaten pizza with a knife and fork, which hubby (from Brooklyn!!) mocked her for every time.

But Mom got her revenge that day, as the tour guide took up knife and fork to tackle the pizza.

(Dang good pizza, too...wood fired oven Margherita pizza.)

258 Fenelon, I attended a baptism of a Russian friend's baby at a Russian Orthodox church years ago and it was amazing. Almost the entire service is sung in Russian, they repeat every thing three times (so the god parents had to make their pledge three times, circle the baby three times, etc.), and instead of just a little holy water on the forehead, the priest held the naked babe high over his head and then dunked her into the baptismal font - three times.

The choice in using an unleavened crust is to either make square cuts or use a knife and fork.

Given that central Ohio to Cincy draws heavily on Neopolitan influences in their dough selection for local joints it may well be he learned the habit that way.

Let's pick a candidate who doesn't cause any controversy or attract any crowds. With the help of our New York based right wing writers, we'll be able to choose the correct person who will promise the changes all the past presidents have failed to deliver on. But this time they will.

It just goes to show what a bad idea this entire primary thing was in the first place. Our betters know who should be in charge and if we would have listened, Jeb! would have already been the nominee.

No he is largely correct.

The Italians look at Pizza as anything from a quick portable meal to a near dessert depending on region.

A genuine Sicilian Pizza is hardly recognizable to US eyes as a Pizza.

Pizza is an interaction between dough, sauce, topping and bake style...

I have seen it stress varying portions of each as the vector for the caloric content.

Very true, sven, but moo moo does have a valid point about politics being downstream from culture. Leftist control in the face of rightist apathy results in Nixon being considered the worst president in history for his fumbling a third-rate burglary (which, IMO, was absolutely justified against the DNC nickelfuckers) and Scankles' outright violation of national security protocols being dismissed as part of the VRWC.

I have never seen an Orthodox baptism but the entire dunking is a big thing and I think they have a ceremony/prayers about all the clothing they put on the baby.

Sorry to get all "preachy" here but that's what I love about the church universal. You can go to an Evangelical church and have lively singing and
clapping, You can go to a Orthodox Church and have lots of prayer. You can go to a Non denominational church and have great preaching. You can go to a Roman Catholic Church and as long as you're a RC who is in a state of grace you can have the Eucharist every week. You can go a Methodist church and have great hymns of the faith. We serve a big God who can be faithfully worshipped in a variety of ways. As long as we're focused on Jesus and founded on his death and resurrection and the word of Scripture any good worship service can bring us closer to Christ and to others which-IS what discipleship is all about.

Thus endeth the lesson. ;^)

Not true unless you mean "franchises suck."

America has very distinct regional preferences in Pizza cuisine amongst the mom and pops....

as was alluded to upthread I *was* going to St Louis to get an Imo's Pizza...

Imo's is not Papa John's...

even amongst the franchises excepting Domino's and Pizza Hut there are regional undertones to the culinary selections.

Papa John's is very much influenced by the Founder's region...the sauce is sweet b/c of Cincy influence and his dough is a reflection of the Indy-Detroit take on it.

I find his dough to be boring, the sauce while good is inferior to La Rosa's as an example of the "sweet" taste of the Germanic influence on Concy's Italian population's preference.

Just my opinion.

Just about 20 years ago, in the Toledo not pictured above, one yoot slew another over the last slice of pizza.

There was no sense of emotionalism whatever over the slaying part; everyone, regardless of ethnicity, cut to the chase.

My favorite local place has somehow crisped the thicker crust so you can eat with hands -- crust, cheese, toppings, then diced tomatoes and sauce. Mmmmmm. I grew up with sugar in tomato sauce (cuts the acidity), so my preferences go with that as well as the sturdier crust to hold more goodies.

349 "Statistics" is the mathematical term for what was once called "lying."
Which reminds me, pizza-wise, the Pie Chart was invented by the founder of the Red Cross. Conspiracy?

I had a more-or-less genuine Italian pizza once in Cleveland, as a child. Then followed 25 years of ketchup on crackers, as pizza took the nation by storm. Pizza is now a world phenomenon, and it little profits to compare it to its real progenitor.

The ancient Greek "gyro" was invented in 1965. By a Turk.

Yup.

Butte's mom and pops are just about done being ran out of business by the chains.

Sad too, they had a thriving Italian community until the Anaconda Mining Company bought out Little Italy and Little Ukraine to switch from Seven Dwarf mining to quarry style.

Whole neighborhoods were demolished.

Anyway the latest chain joint is "pizza ranch" which just had an E coli scare with their pepperoni.

Yep. Deep dish pizza is for tourists. When I lived in Chicago, I didn't know a single native who ate it. Most of the local pizza places (not the chains) did a thin crust, heavy on the toppings. Very good.

However, if you've never had a stuffed pizza, that is kind of like a giant calzone made in a pan and is pretty good. There's a place on the north side called Piero's that does a really good job with those.

412 BBQ? Dry or wet, both good. Which is why I do one rack dry-rubbed (my own mix), one rack just salt ampersand pepper, sauce it at the very end, when I do my amazing, improbably excellent baby backs on the gas grill.


I do plan to get a smoker before long, but I have learned that, against the conventional wisdom, one can in fact do ribs low-and-slow (around 220) on a gas grill.


And to push further into heretical territory, a pork shoulder in the slow cooker produces pulled pork that I'd rank with anything "real" done the right way, as far as flavor. Current favorite is a bourbon-mango version.

Posted by: rhomboid at March 31, 2016 12:28 PM (QDnY+)

413 MW, I'm not surprised. A real Pizza Margherita is just about an appetizer. A form of bread, with just cheese and sauce. But oh, what cheese and sauce.

I'm in kind of a pizza town by modern definition, two national chains from here, one I can throw a rock to the original site, and almost every shop has dropped anchovies from the ingredient list. This is certainly a break from the Roman tradition. Romans used fermented-anchovy sauce on almost everything. Garum.

Before you gag, that's the basic ingredient of Worcestershire.

I can only surmise that the ewww-factor of the weak and squeamish finally triumphed. I've known those who couldn't be in the same room with it.

I have no idea what's up with this, but it *could* be that he wants to put the full weight of the FBI into the interview since Hills has long had a reputation of treating people of lower levels (aides, SS agents, etc.) like sh#t. Not saying she won't treat Comey like sh#t, but having the CIA Director does convey that they will not be intimidated by her highness.

I'm probably just being delusional, though...

Totino's lashed with your favorite parm and folded in half in a good "oh fuck I need to eat" meal ready in 11 minutes if your oven is preheated and you are feeding two people.

For just slices in Missoula, the Good Food Store has the best option. Oddly enough, it's cheap, too. But you have to eat it there or it goes downhill, fast.

Biga is Downtown between Higgins and Orange...better for whole pies, but they have oven problems. Their oven is too small and inefficient for the volume they try and put out.

Now some see Cruz as some sort of Knight of the Right. He ain't.

He's a gomer who is perfectly willing to stand at the border with Glenn Beck handing out toys to kids as they wade the Rio Grande and gas on with late-night hosts with dreams of running Donald Trump over with a car. A real class act.

I used to think a Ted Cruz administration would be something like a third-term GW Bush deal. Now I think he's a lot closer to Clinton.

Nah, people are generally openly happy to be manipulated and lied to. Look how easy it is for the regime here to do it. At some point it's a self sustaining system. In the US now I think we've passed that point and it is nominally stable.

Us morons are just bumps along the way that occasionally perturbates the leftist machine for a moment until it automatically steers back on course. We could shove it good and hard to see what happens but lacking that minimal effort on the part of the statists is really required any more.

463 Red Baron pizza is from the same company as Schwan's delivery service.
So, you can get frozen pizza, delivered. I had so many poor memories of it from motels and such that in years of Scwan's patronage I never got one. People say they are the better frozen pizza, but, what would I know. I am frequently dismayed at the grocery store, currently expanding to be more Whole Foodie, at the one entire Kroger-length aisle freezer bank with nothing.but.frozen.pizzas. My town.

A fond memory of Tombstone, even though I've found them crummy. Many years ago they were a sponsor of the Novi racing team. It takes one hell of a man to climb into an 800-hp Indy car with a widow-maker reputation that also says "Tombstone" in great big letters right on the aerodynamic fin behind your head.

I see a quiet person to person meeting where he has a somewhat deferential tone. Then he reports that he had a long interview with her and is satisfied that after exhaustive review (1) there simply is not enough evidence to indict; (2) she realizes things were done carelessly and she assumed full responsibility and will correct the problem; and (3) in any case, he is personally satisfied that she has told the truth and that there was no intent to deceive.

About a year from now." (and who hasn't appreciated not being able to do it--my cell phone locker key disappeared off my desk today):

"Holocaust Remembrance...what's the Holocaust...oh yeah, a good start."

"Remember the "beers, no bitches" parties?" ("beers, no bitches" said about five more times the next three minutes)

"Yeah, he was a homo. Homo...Homo...every model has a homo in it" (Homo said like ten times over the next five minutes).
