    This is very nice. I'm curious if you added any dressing. For this, I would have just added extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and lemon juice.

    The Food Thread part 2

    I'm going vegan for 6 days a week. I'm thinking unsweetened soy milk will give me the protien needed. I'm trying to rule out why my stomach is getting so big. People are noticing. I want to rule out allergies from dairy. I'm doing the 'one meal a day' omad diet. If I still have a gut with...

    Would you cryogenically freeze yourself?

    It's funny how we joke about this, but it will be an option soon. Your blood would be drained out and replaced with a preservative. If I woke up in the future, I would probably be wishing I froze myself earlier.

    Would you cryogenically freeze yourself?

    If they could revive someone without injury then I would probably do it, but not until I was fairly old. I'd want to wake up in the distant future and marvel at all the advancements, but knowing my luck, the morning cleaner at the lab wil unplug my cryogenic chamber to plug in her hoover and...

    Have any of you played the VR game Half-Life Alyx yet? The immersion is amazing! It runs flawlessly on my low spec PC. I just have an i7-4820K CPU, 16GB of DDR3 RAM and an Nvidia 1060 3GB graphics card with the Oculus Rift CV1. I'll be getting a new PC soon that can handle the new HP Reverb...

    I wonder if we will find planets more favourable than Earth for life with advanced evolution beyond what the human brain is capable of fathoming. If we found one of the said planets, we wouldn't be able to acknowledge their existence. We would be like ants walking over a shoe, not knowing it is...

    I have to go on a liquid diet from Sunday for 5 days due of a hospital procedure next week so decided to treat myself. I tried 5 Guys for the first time yesterday. A burger, fries and a shake came to £21. 4/10 not amazing I bought a dry aged marbled rib of beef today for £34. That was £50 a...

    I set my alarm for midnight to take my chicken thighs out of the smoker. The alarm went off and I laid down for 5 minutes more. I ended up falling asleep again until 7am. I just checked the meat and it came out perfect. The charcoal had burnt out, but the oak blocks still had some small glowing...

    I'm still thinking about creating my own drinks. I need to order citric acid, malic acid, phosphoric acid, taurine, B12 powder, sorbitol and other cool stuff off of eBay. I want to make sour fruit ice drinks. I can make it easily by buying a large slush puppie and adding an energy drink, but...

    I advertised a PS4 Pro with a wireless controller for collection for £200. Someone asked if they could have it for £180 and I agreed. He wanted to know first if the warranty seals were intact so it was covered by his hone insurance. He collected it and emailed the next day to say it he couldn’t...

    Today I learned

    You can get tapeworm ( Taenia saginata ) from eating beef that isn't well done. They can live in your intestines for many years without symptoms.

    I had BBQ ribs, fries and sweet pickled tomatoes for lunch. I think I'll order Chinese for dinner. I'll get the House Special chow mein, the spicy king prawns and a pancake roll.

    Today, I'm making 2lbs of Chinese pork dumplings. I'll eat a load and freeze the rest nom nom.
