    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.

    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.

    When this Covid 19 mess has cleared up, I'm going straight to Thailand. I haven't been yet. I just want the sunshine and the Thai street food. Can't wait.

    What is the best way to make Blueberries last longer?

    I squirting them generously with lime juice to the lower pH. They're all eaten now. I'm starting a 'fruit only' detox for a few days. They were a steal at 25p per pack. Thanks for all the advice.

    I had a gross experience late last night. I was quite drunk and watching 3D films on my Oculus Rift VR headset, so the room lights were off. The fridges are in the garden and I left my empty pint glass on the patio floor. I went out and got my last beer for the night and started filling the...

    What is the best way to make Blueberries last longer?

    I’ve got vinegar and baking powder too. They’ll probably be ok for a few days. It’s just the soft ones that got infected. I’ll probably make a smoothie with them tomorrow. I wanted to sterilise them first, but their dry, firm and fresh.

    What is the best way to make Blueberries last longer?

    I bought a lot of blueberries on sale but didn’t get around to eating them for 5 days. They were in the fridge. The soft ones went furry, so I meticulously sorted through them and picked those out. I only lost about 10% and the rest are nice and firm. A large bowls worth. I want them to last a...

    I'm working cold beers and wondering if atoms at absolute zero generate a magnetic field, or is it only electron oscillation that creates the field (not in absolute zero). Please don't move this. I'm just sharing harmless random thoughts :smile:

    I've never understood electromagnetic radiation. I've read a bit of the Wiki on it, but I don't get it yet. Every atom in the universe emits EMR unless in absolute zero state. You're emitting it right now in infrared. If photons are emitted from electrons (dropping a state), I would have...

    I saw a YouTube vid that showed an American diner serving medium rare hamburgers. I tried it myself at home and preferred it to well done. If you were to have a bbq and serve a guest a medium rare burger, they'll reject it, thinking they'll get food poisoning.

    The next few weeks will determine if we'll witness an extinction level event. Viruses are classified as non-living, yet are reprogramming themselves to attack the biggest threat of all to life on planet Earth. The human immune system. I think we've pissed off Mother nature and she's about to...
