Friday's ONT Has a Certain Je Ne Sais Quoi

Thanks for the clarification, I wasn't sure.

Bad Idea Jeans


Hey, let's ask Suzie to play. She plays softball, maybe she'd like dodge ball!



Miscarriage of Justice

Woman helps cop, kills bad guy - then gets sued

I don't say “there oughtta be a law” often, mainly because I usually think there shouldn't be a law, and a lot of existing laws need to be eliminated, but there oughtta be a law that someone who is killed, hurt, whatever during the commission of a crime has no right to sue for anything.


Climb Every Mountain


Why did the man climb the mountain? Because it was there? Because he was drunk!

Drunk tourist accidentally climbs mountain while trying to get back to his hotel

Honorary Moron.


Rare Footage

Everyone knows that men go fishing. What is not as well know is that sometimes fish go manning.


Oh, Dwayne


I've always liked The Rock, mainly because he seems to be a fairly affable guy, and he'd not afraid to make fun, sometimes silly, movies. Also because I haven't seen him get political at all. Actors are paid to act, not think. That's why I was disappointed to see this story.

DWAYNE ‘THE ROCK’ JOHNSON THROWS HIS SUPPORT TO NFL ANTHEM PROTESTORS


Not Quite Darwin Award


He Bought A Mini Taser For His Wife, And Tested It On Himself

I bet all his friends now greet him with “ZZZZZZZAP!”


Man's Best Friend

Get a dog, they said. Dogs will always look out for you if you're in trouble, they said.



Facts and Figures

Does Gun Control Reduce Murder? Let’s Run The Numbers Across The World.


Willful Blindness

American Jews should wake up to which side their most dangerous enemies are on.

Now I get that a lot of American Jews identify more with their cultural and political class than with their ethnicity. I guess I can sorta understand that. What I don't understand is the deliberate refusal to recognize just where the majority of today's antisemitism is coming from, and the historical ignorance to think that because their ethnicity doesn't matter to them, it won't matter to others if the time ever comes. German Jews thought they were good, solid German citizens. And they were. Until they weren't.

A Lone Voice, Crying in the Wilderness


When Schools Get Political, What Should Teachers Do?

This is a good teacher. Not because she pushed political views that I agree with onto her students, but because she didn't. (To be fair, not pushing is a political stance I agree with).

well, depends upon how you look at it. sure the rabbit lost one foot which is now hanging from someone's key chain, which might make you think he is unlucky.

However, he is much luckier than the rabbit whose entire body is hanging off of someone's key chain.

Pretty
good, but somewhat overpriced for the quality of the work. Christie
could have dome better hiring one of the best NYC artists for that
price.

The upside is that the finished painting will at least be a palate cleanser from the recent horrid Obama "portraits".

What if there are two crimes? Shoplifter gets caught; proprietor breaks his hand to teach him a lesson.

Both of them should be prosecuted, but there are also damages. Shoplifter, if he broke anything in the course of his crime, and the proprietor who caused medical damage to the shoplifter. I think they should both be responsible for the damages they were responsible for.

64 I think some states have laws preventing civil action against victims who resist and hurt/off the perps. Makes sense.


Since we are constantly balancing restrictions of freedom, inconveniences, etc., it's a no-brainer to reduce the protections given to criminals in the act. Their victims rank very high, the perps rank at the bottom of any conceivable scale.

A wrench is easy to dodge, because it's too heavy to throw really hard, much like the traditional dodge ball. A wiffle ball is easy to throw hard (although tough on the arm) but has no impact.

A baseball is pretty much in the sweet spot in weight, between light enough to throw hard, but heavy enough to do some damage when it hits.

But he never got hurt because those big round rubbery balls couldn't hurt anyone. He just had to sit on the sidelines watching everyone else have fun.

++++

Shoplifting is rarely a felony. Unless the shoplifter is in a jewelry store and the diamonds are unattended. Most shoplifting crimes are misdemeanors.

Besides that, the felony murder doctrine doesn't protect the person who commits a crime against a criminal. If an unarmed thief is stealing your car, and you come running out and shoot him dead, the felony murder doctrine has nothing to do with you. If the thief had an accomplice, that person might get charged with murder, but so would you. The accomplice under the felony murder doctrine; you just as a plain old murderer.

In the era before modern policing and forensics, the state lacked any real enforcement mechanisms to prevent crime so they relied on the fear of the hangman to keep people on the straight and narrow. Just as society was getting advanced enough to catch a good percentage of criminals to make fear of death a real deterrent, we puss out on the death penalty. Sad!

173 So, I got myself registered to view documents in the Federal Court for the Southern District of New York so that I can track the daily cluster-fuckery of the stupid DemonRats v. Roooshians case that was filed today.

The very first thing the attorneys who filed this monstrosity did, right after filing the complaint, was to fuck up and improperly follow the rules for requesting the court to issue the Federal Summons that is supposed to be issued for each named Defendant. Ha! Morons. The rules for that shit are very clear and easy.

The assigned Judge is John G. Koeltl (Cthulhu?!?!), appointed by Clinton in 1994. He was part of the Watergate Special Prosecutor's staff.

The Magistrate Judge assigned (a lesser form of judge that is really just a long-practicing attorney who helps out the geezer Judge who is overseeing the case) is Stewart D. Aaron. Don't know much about him.

The DemonRats are insane. The complaint is 66 pages long, with 107 citations contained therein. Almost every one of the citations are not to statutes, or cases, or even "evidence" as it would normally be understood to be defined, but are citations to NEWS REPORTS. Essentially the allegations in the complaint come from various stalwarts of probity and accuracy as . . .

Chuck Todd of CNN;
Michael Crowley at Politico;
Tom Hamburger and David Ignatius at the WaPo;
Etc. You get the drift.

Every defendant in the case has a right to "Discovery", in which they will get to dig into ALL the shit that JackStraw talks about, Bongino, Hannity, Levin, Rush, all the REAL facts about this whole mess.

Again, the DemonRats are absolutely insane to file this. This opens the door to public disclosure of every scandal they have been trying to hide with the Mueller witch-hunt.

182 In the era before modern policing and forensics, the
state lacked any real enforcement mechanisms to prevent crime so they
relied on the fear of the hangman to keep people on the straight and
narrow. Just as society was getting advanced enough to catch a good
percentage of criminals to make fear of death a real deterrent, we puss
out on the death penalty. Sad!

In years past, I doubt if it really mattered if the hanged were actually guilty or not -- pour encourager les autres, and all that...

200 Besides that, the felony murder doctrine doesn't protect the person who commits a crime against a criminal. If an unarmed thief is stealing your car, and you come running out and shoot him dead, the felony murder doctrine has nothing to do with you. If the thief had an accomplice, that person might get charged with murder, but so would you. The accomplice under the felony murder doctrine; you just as a plain old murderer.
Posted by: Anon Y. Mous at April 20, 2018 10:11 PM (pvjTE)


A bit of a straw man. If someone is stealing your car, most likely at night, and you have reason to believe he's armed - i.e., the most likely scenario - and you blow him away, depending on circumstances, you should be home and dry.

Yeah, you can contrive circumstances where that wouldn't be the case, but for my money, if you interrupt someone in the commission of a felony, and he doesn't immediately surrender, you should be free of legal consequences for blowing him away.

Think of the public policy considerations.

If the thief isn't waving a gun around, the owner can only know that the thief isn't brandishing. Of course he wouldn't know what the thief has in his pockets.

well, as pertains to cows it is simply a matter of right and wrong. you will have much more difficulty trying to brand through heavy winter hair than the lighter summer hair. ideally you would always clip the hair way down before branding so you do not have to apply the brand very long, the burn is less severe, and risk if infection is lower.

also a matter of right and wrong in humans too. bald is better.

"Why is there a problem with executing people who are insane? If they have no idea what's about to happen to them, it's easy to make it humane. Just tell 'em they're going on a ride at Disneyland."
Posted by: qdpsteve at April 20, 2018 10:31 PM (eMKNe)


I used to joke about that. There are only two possibilities: either they knew what they were doing at the time, or they didn't.

If they knew what they were doing at the time, then they deserve execution.

If they didn't know what they were doing at the time, then they won't know what we're doing when we put them in the electric chair.

If you are suggesting that I'm an apologist for criminals, you're full of shit.

The problem with a lax attitude about people shooting each other is when the cops show up at a scene with a shooter and a dead body and the only witness is the shooter. Make it too easy for people to shoot others with only the shooter's claim that a crime occurred, there will be lots more shootings. And all of the people getting shot will not be criminals. Sometimes, get this, the person who does the shooting lies about why he did the deed.

Which is a great reason to restrict shootings to circumstances where it is absolutely necessary. Like self defense.

A crazy guy just happens to murder someone. Fine. He should suffer the penalties for murder. He can't comprehend the consequences of his actions. Tough shit. Someone suffered from the consequences of his actions. The same way that that innocent person suffered he will have to suffer the consequences of his actions.

All this crap about someone not being able to be found guilty by reason of insanity is ridiculous and has helped to make a mockery of the law.

You feel bad that some insane dude happened to cut a lady up into little bits? Fine. Then you can cry for him as he's executed. But he should be executed, whether he understands what he did or not. He did it and she suffered. There's no moral problem in him suffering equally from his actions as the victim did.

There was a story in the news when I lived in southern indiana.

A woman motorist, who had her teen son in the car, shot a biker. Now evidently, she had cut the biker off in traffic on hwy 62, I believe. He was despondent. She pulled off the road and he pulled off as well. He got off his bike and came back to yell at her. He put his hands on the car roof and she shot him through the door. Killed him.

She was also involved in a similar incident 5 years or so earlier.

(Do you remember this one Scogg? You are in southern indiana, iirc. Am I missing or misconstruing any details?)

My big thing is there is a whole slew of bad decisions. Her being involved in a similar case is interesting. She should not have pulled off the road. The doofus should not have gotten off the bike and touched her car. It is like a giant chain of bad.

Why would carefully planned pre-meditated murder have a higher penalty than some nut who looses his shiite and kills granny for taking too long counting change at a wal-mart check out?

I'd think think the one with no control is a greater danger than one who spends maybe years mulling it over.

But no. The guy who kills spur of the moment is not as bad or just doesn't understand killing is wrong.

The lawyers have been working hard on that issue. THey will now tell you that the "pre-meditation" required for murder 1 can take place in an instant before the act. An instant! That's some turbo-meditation.

well, usually, the crime of passion is attributed to some circumstance that put someone over the top like catching a cheating lover or something. someone going batshit crazy in a checkout line would be more of a mental defect. the reason the premeditated murder is considered more dangerous is because their considered opinion was that this was a good solution to a problem.

Posted by: Steve and Cold Bear at April 20, 2018 10:58 PM (/qEW2)

399 the whole "anti-semite" name calling thing is disturbing.

it is a very powerful weapon against patriotic Americans, AND at the same time is mostly a left wing thing, to the extent bigoted hate for Jews really exists. (KKK types are historically Dems as well, still are in my view)

Most "real" so called anti-Semites" say they are anti-Zionist, whatever that means. They seem to think there is a semi-secret society of certain powerful Jews that control power globally, perhaps tied to the old Rothschild bankers (who were indeed the major banking power across Europe for 200 years, according to Britannica).

But even that version of "anti-Semite" (I believe the globalist banker/elite power is diversified now, even if it was not so much back then) is more against an elite ownership power that ruled above government, not against the Jews as a people (imo).

The people that want Israel pushed into the sea are some Muslim neighbors mostly (and Obama's ilk?). Madeline Albright said they should "go back to Germany or wherever they came from" ... which seems pretty insane, but she is a globalist and leftist hater.

There is no doubt there are powerful groups that prefer to remain in the "shadows" so their powerful actions are not identified and stopped. This is how the Soviets marched through our institutions, how the alleged "Masonic" secret society acts, how the crime syndicates operate in background, it is the whole concept of the "shadow government".

Corporate and foreign lobbyists also like to be anonymous. Power prefers to not draw attention to its tactics. Transparency should reveal them all. Any large "collective" that acts this way are often rightly identified as a "threat" to our American individual liberty, but only certain groups claim victim-hood and immunity for actions in their self-interest against ours.

Even the evangelical that is on board with supporting Israel gets called "white supremacist" and "Nazi", which is basically the same as "anti-Semite". It is often the same (powerfully effective) "assault weapon" as when "racist" is when used against those advocating border control. This silences the critics of Harvey Weinstein types and allows such problems to persist far beyond what a normal society would accept. (even if Weinstein was not really living as a Jew, just using the anti-Semite advantage)

To put American interests ahead of Israel's interests is not "anti-Semite", even though protecting an ally is important, as long as they are pro-liberty and acting as our ally. It's a two-way street.

Recently Israel said they would send their unwanted African migrants into the west "where they could be absorbed" ... and Netanyahu in 2016 scolded Trump about not taking in Muslims, saying we must. WTF? It does not make Americans anti-Semite to say "Hell No" we won't "absorb" your outcasts, as if we are your dump. Who are the real 'supremacists' in that case?

I think you only imagine some great difference between locking them up for life and executing them. You seem to assign execution some moral value that you don't to life imprisonment, but if you think about it either there are moral values to both or to neither.

I would be willing to entertain different treatment for insane people, depending.

Nope. For the hypothetical I used, where the car owner is in the house and comes out and shoots the unarmed thief, not legal. Murder in every state.

If you were in the car and someone is trying to take it from you, different story.

Posted by: Anon Y. Mous at April 20, 2018 10:41 PM (pvjTE)



In Texas, the crime of Burglary at Night (which can include your car in the driveway), is specifically mentioned in the State Penal Code as being justification for the use of deadly force.

That's cause in the dark, you might not be able to tell if the perp is armed or not, and the right of the "judgment call" goes to the lawful resident, and not to the unlawful intruder.

Still, a gun equipped with a light is a smart thing to have handy. 'Cause I'd really prefer to NOT have to make the shot, if at all possible.

Justified or not, it's gonna be an agony of interviews, interrogations, attorney's fees and etc., if the loud noise happens.

461 well, first of all, I distinguish between retarded / mentally insufficient to understand and insane. No problem with locking up someone forever for either reason if they commit some crime such as you suggested. executing them is something different.

I think you only imagine some great difference between locking them up for life and executing them. You seem to assign execution some moral value that you don't to life imprisonment, but if you think about it either there are moral values to both or to neither.

I would be willing to entertain different treatment for insane people, depending.

well, there certainly is a difference between execution and life imprisonment. not sure that requires a lot of explanation. indeed it is harder to imagine why someone would find it easier to think that there is no moral distinction between them than that there is a moral distinction.

I think there is a distinction between someone that is mentally incapable of agency, someone that is perhaps capable of agency but does not employ it, and someone that is "temporary insane." temporary insanity may be a thing but it is certainly not as common as is suggested.

A man-bun is the coiffure of desire, FYI

Posted by: Cicero (@cicero) at April 20, 2018 11:15 PM (kLBhp)

474 With respect to insanity - our laws today actually reach back to the English Common Law, and the ideas which were accepted even during the period of the most severe punishments.

The idea was (and is) that a) men deserve punishments for evil acts committed willfully, and b) every man is entitled to a fair trial where he has an opportunity to present a defense, no matter how obvious his guilt may be. The idea here is that men, no matter how bad they may be, have certain inalienable rights which cannot be taken away by government. This is the tradition which Jefferson referenced in the Declaration of Independence.

The problem with (real, not temporary) insanity is twofold - first, a man (or woman) who is truly insane is incapable of acting rationally or willfully. It might seem appropriate to put them down like one would put down a mad dog, but we don't do that because they still are men and women, no matter how defective, and out of respect for our own selves we don't treat any men like animals.

Second, a truly insane person is incapable of presenting a defense, or even of participating in a trial. Example - there is a local boy/man who at the age of 17 murdered a popular teacher with a butcher knife. He has never faced trial, and he never will - the psych report on him said that he can barely last for 5 minutes in a conversation with anyone before he whips around and starts to engage in an angry, yelling dialogue with "people" that no one else can see. The only break from this is for docs to give him so much thorazine that he just sits in a chair and drools all day.

These are very hard cases - warehousing them for life is hardly a good solution either, but as a society we've decided that's better than going down the slippery slope of executing the mental defectives.

Nothing.

But that's the point. Guards KNOW that about death row inmates, who comprise a small proportion of the inmate population, and presumably take appropriate precautions.

Guards wandering amongst genpop again realistically can't take the same measures. There's just too many of such inmates.

542 well, usually, the crime of passion is attributed to some circumstance that put someone over the top like catching a cheating lover or something. someone going batshit crazy in a checkout line would be more of a mental defect. the reason the premeditated murder is considered more dangerous is because their considered opinion was that this was a good solution to a problem.

Posted by: yankeefifth at April 20, 2018 10:57 PM (MTjB1)

I think it was not so much the level of dangerousness as about culpability. Though it may seem unwoke these days, it used to be thought that if a man walked in on his wife screwing her lover, and he saw red and shot them both dead, it would be more understandable because he was just unable to control himself. Whereas the guy who killed his wife for the insurance money was completely in control of himself and decided to do it anyway. Guilty mind.

You get convicted of, say, beating somebody to death with a baseball bat you can get 5 years PMITA prison time for punishment, then comes restitution the day punishment is done - you get beat to death with a baseball bat in the yard.

Because civil offenses are lesser than criminal offenses as is the making good on the bad you did.

I don't know where you get the idea that neither me nor mine have ever been the victims of crime. You keep on spinning odd little "facts" about me that are only true in your own little brain.

"Well, you're giving victims of crimes license to torture criminals"

Am not. In the above the storekeeper would wind up guilty of assault, a worse crime (and thus worthy of a more severe punishment) than the one the shoplifter committed. He'd wind up doing more time than the thief. That's the deterrent.

755 Tastes vary, but any reasonable non-chain or local chain fast Mex place in SoCal (they abound) will have much better or at least much less americanized border Mex food than Del Taco.


All depends on what you're looking for, like, know about, or can get to. One time, coming south on the 101 in Ventura, was dying for good Mex, so turned off into Oxnard, hoping to stumble on a genuine local taco shop (that area is pretty much Mexican). Jackpot. First place I saw looked right; went in - perfect. No habla ingles. Fresh tortillas. Amazing fillings.


Quality/variety of good Mexican food available now is vastly greater than the old days in SoCal (back then I imagine Boyle Heights and similar areas in LA had great stuff, but it wasn't everywhere).

I don't say "there oughtta be a law" often, mainly because I usually think there shouldn't be a law, and a lot of existing laws need to be eliminated, but there oughtta be a law that someone who is killed, hurt, whatever during the commission of a crime has no right to sue for anything.

What, and put hundreds or thousands of lawyers out of work?

Nevermind. There's a somewhat famous case of a guy who rigged up a boobytrap in his home (due to previous break-ins?) -- It worked on the next burglar but not fatally, and he was sued and found liable.

A bit of mixed emotion on that. Nah, I'm kidding. Too bad the burglar lived.

I think the justification for finding the guy liable is that trip-guns are so monumentally dangerous and stupid (and illegal!) that anybody who gets caught putting one up can expect to get the book thrown at them.

actually, it's Premarin, which is a trade name that stands for "Pregnant Mare Urine", which is/was the current source of the raw material, AFAIK.

we were told, back in the day, by our Army instructors who would, of course, never lie, that the original source was pregnant human female urine, but that that plan had fallen apart right after husbands found out that payment was based on output, and started adding their volume to the total.

YMMV.

867 This discussion of Sweet Caporals made me dig out this transcript of a Lucius Beebe article about smoking that my father cut out, framed and hung in the livingroom, and wrote on the back of the frame, "This is the best newspaper article I have ever read"

Beebe worked for the San Francisco Chronicle and wrote a syndicated column This Wild West for 6 years. Quite a character, but would not be a good moron, 'cause he wore extravagantly tailored trousers.



Lucius Beebe, This Wild West



ALWAYS THE ENEMY IS WASHINGTON



In the years of my youth, a period
approximating Appomattox Court House, as it now seems, or at least
ante-dating the Custer massacre, cigarettes were not a highly
regarded article of commerce. Their use generally was restricted
to the lower orders of society, pimps, race track touts, Congressmen
and the like, and certainly none were ever smoked in my father's
house by any member of the family, although now and then guests asked
if they might be excused to go into the garden and smoke a cigar
after dinner.



Smoking in the presence of ladies was
unthinkable and there was still a statute on the local Boston laws
books against smoking pipes on the public street, pipes being
associated with the Irish and not to be tolerated in the presence of
gentlefolk.



There were, to be sure, exceptions to
the rule. My friend Edwin Arlington Robinson, was notoriously a
smoker of Sweet Caporals, but he was a recognized and widely
acclaimed poet and was accorded the tolerance usually extended to
genius. A bleak and craggy Down Easter, he had been a mighty
skirmisher with the bottle in earlier times and cigarettes were
regarded as a sort of tapering off. Most other men of letters of the
time smoked pipes, and cigars were, of course, the universal hallmark
of manhood and symbol of prestige according to their quality and
cost.



NOR WAS THIS PREJUDICE against
cigarettes a parochial one confined to Puritan New England, As
evidence of bad morale among the ship's company in the sinking of the
Titanic, witnesses attested that in the lifeboats many stewards and
other members of the crew lit cigarettes in the presence of ladies,
not to mention the Grim Reaper and the greatest catastrophe of modern
times, It was, incidentally, the most serious evidence of misconduct
ever made against the company's servants on that ill-starred
vessel.



Tobacco in those days wasn't
especially big business, certainly nothing to attract the hostility
of a predatory federal Government bent on taxing out of existence
every possible source of revenue except the billion dollar union
racket, some of whose components are wealthier by far than the
industries they seek to impoverish by extortion.



Now the wowsers, do-gooders and
reforming trash generally including 'medical authorities' from
mail order schools of osteopathy with nothing better to occupy their
childish minds, are grinding out a sustained barrage of
anti-cigarette propaganda. The Surgeon General of the U. S.,
presumably an handy fellow in the realm of gunshot wounds, has
appointed the usual committee to investigate the potentialities for
lung cancer, and will publicity-mad politicians of the more order,
like California's superfluous Governor Brown, are rallying to
denounce the sinful cigarette as a smoke screen for the evasion of
more potentially dangerous issues.



To date the principal source of this
septic fright talk about lung cancer has been England where
socialized medicine has reduced the once haughty practitioners of
Harley street to a confraternity of seedy pensioners dependent on the
favors of the Ministry of Health that is a shining example of
bureaucratic incompetence, corruption and political expediency.



The massed forces of bigotry,
superstition, and infected politics are ganging up on tobacco in
general and cigarettes in particular with an ultimate view to their
total prohibition. And don't think for a minute this cretin
babbling about lung cancer isn't going to cost you and me money.
Tobacco taxes last year yielded $3.2 billions in State and Federal
revenue, and a least dime's abatement in this sum is going to be
compensated by some other confiscatory rooking of the tax-payer to
support he nest of boodling elected mendicants in Washington D.C.



The time for all men of independence
and integrity to start smoking is right now.

I doubt that I have smoked ten
cigarettes in the last ten years except when I am in England and can
get Sullivan and Powell's incomparable product, but I'm dusting off
a lot of gold cigarette cases that have been lying around bank vaults
for decades and am going to re-establish a habit I neither admire
nor take pleasure in as a patriotic duty.



The cold war that is waged every
minute of the day and night between the voters and tax-payers of the
United States and the Government at Washington is getting hot with a
meddlesome, impertinent and paternalistic hierarchy of shiftless
time-servers trying to move in once more on the personal liberties of
those of us who maintain them with their front feet in the pubic hog
trough.



For 13 long years I fought the good
fight along with 160,000 other American patriots allied against the
infamies of prohibition to maintain a state of universal alcoholism
and put the boots to the thrice damned religious bigots like Bishop
Cannon and Mrs, Ella Boole and the heels on Capitol Hill who did
their obscene bidding. I've got scars of battle on my liver to show
for it.

I'm not too old to enlist again in the
unceasing battle that all Americans have to fight against the enemy
and everybody's enemy, the Federal Government of the United States in
all its bureaucratic infamy



May I offer you a light?

903 pure Gatorade or Powerade is bad for your teeth in regular consumption, due to ionic levels that will demineralize your teeth.

additionally, you should drink them diluted, 1:4 or 5, not only for the teeth, but so that they additional minerals, etc, don't make your insides hypertonic, and actually dehydrate your further, instead of keeping you balanced.

That is true. Most alcohol sayings are rubbish. But vodka is one many heavy drinkers use because you can mix it easily and it doesn't have a strong smell. Of course all the stuff about say Tequila giving you a worse hangover or never mix beer and whiskey, pretty much that stuff is bogus. It all depends on the person's tolerance etc. Mainly I agree with everything you said. But let's just say certain drinks are favorites of certain types of drinkers.

Roasted beets are delicious, especially the golden beets. I also like borscht, both hot and cold, although I prefer cold as a summer soup. But I have Hungarian blood so paprika and sour cream are separate and distinct food groups to me.

And don't get my Hungarian Grandma started on saffron. She used that stuff like it was $.99 a pound and not $.99 for .5 ounces (made up cost). My Grandma drove my Mom crazy because my Mom would buy it for her and it was crazy expensive, even back in the '60s.

1017 Vodka is evil because you can mix it with so much. A few straight shots of booze are one thing. But it is mixing it that can lead to bad excess.

Alton Brown has YouBoob videos of "Useless Kitchen Gadgets." Pretty funny. And I'm with Alton on one thing: I don't want uni-taskers taking up space in my kitchen; multi-tasking gadgets only.

I must say, though, the one kitchen gadget I have that I got about 10 years ago and that has become indispensable is a Microplane (TM) Zester/Grater. I love that tool. Gave one to a friend for Christmas, and her hubbie loves it when he makes his lemon cookies with lemon zest. Much better than one of those box graters; easier to clean, too.

Nothing wrong with a microplane, I certainly would not call it a gadget. Yes, you can do pretty much everything with good knives, pots and pans. But there are tools that make things a lot easier. One I picked up on back in the day, and it might have been from Alton Brown, was good kitchen tongs. If you ever watch professional chefs in their kitchens, they use tongs for everything, such as moving pans around, moving pasta out of a pot into a sauce, etc.

Yep. Got kitchen tongs when I bought the zester. Never had kitchen tongs before. Now I don't know how I ever cooked without it.

I am with you on all the above. I felt the same way about kitchen tongs, once you use them a while, you wonder what you were doing before. Love corned beef and the Reuben is a fave. I like to make them open face in the oven, you brown the cheese on both slices for some color and texture. I got them that way many moons ago in a restaurant and it stuck with me.

Yes and thank you! Zesting the ginger carries it thru quite strongly. It does the same for garlic. You actually have to be careful with it. A little goes farther.

I kind of do a hybrid, it is probably not necessary, but I like the brown specks on the cheese. I butter both rye bread slices and put them on the range in a cast iron skillet. First meat, then sauce, then horseradish, then cheese, then put it all under a broiler. Like you I usually put them together and eat it as a sandwich.

Posted by: Quint at April 21, 2018 03:30 AM (n13/j)

I rarely grate garlic these days. I like using a knife to smash it out of the skin and then chop to control the strength. I learned that from a movie called "Big Night". Maybe you all have seen it but if not I recommend it, great flick if you like indie films, food, or old school Italian crooners.
