kenarmy posts lots of "(x artist) is better than your favorite singer" and "if you would just listen to (y artist)'s (z song), it would become your favorite."  That's not how musical taste works for me.

That's not how musical taste works, period.  It's not like, if we don't like Britney Spears, then it's because–oops! we made a mistake–last time we listened.  No, it's because we listened and think it's crap.  It's condescending whenever he says that, if we don't share his taste in music, then we're uncultured swine who need to clean the crap out of our ears.  Or whatever words he chooses to convey the same message.

You should actually freeze bread it becomes stall in the fridge if you leave in there too long.

I've had bread get freezer burn, of sorts.  It gets hard on one side sometimes.  That doesn't tend to happen in the fridge.

If a tomato is a fruit, then ketchup (which has sugar) is a smoothie

The tomato is only a fruit botanically speaking.  So is zucchini, so are chickpeas, so are jalapeños, so are pea pods, so is okra, so are string beans, so are cucumbers–basically everything that's not a root or a stem or a leaf.  The distinction that makes tomatoes 'fruit' is meaningless in culinary usage.

If you put your sandwich ingredients in a flatbread, or a pita, is it still a sandwich?  If the answer is yes, then how is a taco different?

Quote from: kkt on August 06, 2021, 08:28:43 AM
Taco shell isn't bread.  It's crisp, more like a large tortilla chip.

Hard-shell tacos are an American invention.  I'm talking about the kind of taco you might actually encounter in Mexico.  Tortillas are a form of unleavened bread.

In a similar vein, gorditas are slightly leavened and commonly stuffed with a filling.  As such, they're basically pita pockets–which are listed on Wikipedia under pocket sandwiches (as are hot dogs):  "Pocket sandwich is a sandwich which is made using a single piece of folded or hollowed bread, such as a pita, which is made from dough cooked with fillings inside."
Sometimes if you put the stale bread in the toaster for a light brown toasting its good 2eat.

I'm a bit annoyed you included the word "oops!" in the same sentence as Britney Spears without following it with some variant of "I did it again".

In any event, I don't think Britney is the best musical act of all time, but I can think of a lot of stuff I'd choose Britney over. But then again, I tend to think of truly great artists as being the ones that change the norms of the art and set a new standard for other acts to follow in the future. While she might be enjoyable to listen to, it's hard to see what Britney did that was transformative.

Which only helps if, say, you're not making a PBJ and putting it in your lunchbox to eat at work.  And that's precisely what I was using sandwich bread for, over the course of several years, until just recently.

Well, now I'm actually quite proud that the thought didn't even cross my mind.  Especially since I was working at Target right after that song came out, and I about went insane having to see the music video on the TVs every time I walked through that part of the store day after day.
