    ok . mselle marina orlova.
    ive been with no doubt for now 2 years and a half or something, ive been watching you nearly everyday since then, i ve been trully and deeply in love with you since the time you apppear.
     As im groing up, as im watching stupids shits on television i am, doubting, in fact, im just thinking that i , deeply can’t be consedering you for mine as we never seen eachother in front of eachother, or anything. Im thinking im too true to be lying and to in fact just force you because that’s what i think. so, as, uh, i have doubted truly of you, in fact of my love for you, both( :_( ), im sorry but i did, 
    we’re old but im true, i can now, no bullshit, say, that i don’t know what. in fact im thinking that maybe love can be not contagious. far in me , too far. the pick up chick, the clip, it was strong!! hi!, im so angry to me to be what i just am now. for what i would be. and i think im just thinking this better than nothing. so i can’t be , i can be. i was ill, i was under drugs, i was bad, i was not good enough, you are the best, so i need to doubt, it is very important…
    and now what, i really don’t know i need to talk to you, but i can’t, i know you won’t, bref, in french, and i completly lost so i stop.

    :idea: On an airport, a apron is the place where a plan parks.

    Exemple, tower can say to a liner when he taxi after his landing : “Flight nb AF4606, go to apron nb 6 :wink:

    Марина, it would have been better if you would have been wearing a napron.

    Anyway, how about the origin of “boot” – both as a tall shoe and as the operation to start a computer system.

    Oatmeal. Since breakfast is my fav meal, and I don’t always have eggs on hand to make a veggie ‘n’ cheese omlette,
    My fall back plan is to make oatmeal. The basic strategy is to have the ingredients in the cupboard, in quantity, bought when there’s a sale at the super market, to have on stand-by status. So, here is the recipe:

    Put water and salt into a pot, measured according to the directions on the box of oats…maybe add 10% more water, you’ll learn to adjust. Dump a handful of raisons per person, quantity is variable ( I prefer a big handful ) into the water and then bring to a boil. This allows the raisons to plump up and soften. Then open a can of either peaches or pears, take out roughly half of the fruit and chop up very fine and add it to the pot. Measure out the oats into a bowl.
    Then into that same bowl, add powdered goats milk ( I purchase Meyenberg Powdered Goats Milk, but regular cows milk powder will do…and if you have normal milk in the fridge, use it instead of water in the first step) and with a spoon, mix the oats and milk powder together, making sure to crush all the lumps in the milk powder. Then gradually stir in this mixture into the pot. Immediately reduce heat when it resumes boiling again, and stir occasionally for about 5 minutes. Serve in bowls, sweeten with honey or brown sugar, and garnish with a pile of croutons made from the heals of a sourdough loaf. Bon appetit.

  13. Homework: chicken and FISH!
    Whole chicken rotiserried with lemon pepper
    Almost any fish I can catch. Most folks don’t know
    how to cook bluefish (oily and gamey fish) but I
    have perfected it. Grilled and basted with a sauce
    made from butter, lemon juice and cashews. tastes
    and smells like a fine white fish – yum! The cashews
    serve to knock down the oil and game aspects.
    My grandfather taught me how to prepare blowfish.
    Tastes like lobster meat. The filets are deadly, but
    the tail meat is quite edible. They only take the bait once in awhile, so I freeze the meat and collect as many as I can before I cook ‘em.
    Also, someone recently requested tarmac, which is what
    pilots call the parking apron at the airport. :mrgreen:

  16. A guy is driving down the highway and a cop notices the guy has a baboon is his passenger seat. The cop turns on his siren and gets the guy to pull over. Cop says, “Hey, you gotta a baboon in the passenger seat… here’s $50… make sure you take him to the zoo right away”. The driver says sure officer… thank you… I’ll do that right away!.
    Next day cop sees same car with baboon in passenger seat. He pulls the guy over and says, ” I thought I told you to take the baboon back to the zoo!”. The driver replies, “I did!… and with the change left over I am taking out to a movie tonight!” :roll:

    OK… I gotta leave for a bit… going to the deli to get a pizza and a beer. So I’ll see y’all a little later. In the meantime, here’s another bad joke… told to me by an Irish uncle.

    An Irishman walks into a bar in Dublin, orders three pints of Guinness and sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more.

    The bartender asks him, “You know, a pint goes flat after I draw it; it would taste better if you bought one at a time.”

    The Irishman replies, “Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in America, the other in Australia, and I’m here in Dublin. When we all left home, we promised that we’d drink this way to remember the days when we drank together.”

    The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there. The Irishman becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way: He orders three pints and drinks them in turn.

    One day, he comes in and orders two pints. All the other regulars notice and fall silent.

    When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, “I don’t want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your great loss.”

    The Irishman looks confused for a moment. Then a light dawns in his eye and he laughs. “Oh, no,” he says, “everyone’s fine. I’ve just quit drinking.”

    *Saluting our Vets* Who among us have served or are serving in their country’s military?

    My family has a long history of service to our respective country’s armed forces… going back to the founding of the Colonies. I say respective because my family has fought on both sides of almost every major war in which the US participated… French, Cherokee, and British relatives during the French and Indian War, Rebel and Loyalist during the Revolutionary War, Yank and British during the War of 1812, Southern and *spit* Yankee during the War of Northern Aggression, Yank and Jerry during WWI, Yank and Kraut during WWII…

    More recently though…

    A very good friend of mine was a US Marine and a tank mechanic in Vietnam. So many tank drivers were killed that he was reassigned from being a mechanic to being a driver. In strange, quiet, rare moments he would describe a few experiences… twice he was the only man in his unit to return from patrol. For him I present Goodnight Saigon.

    An uncle was a pilot in the USAF during Vietnam. He was shot down while returning from a sortie into North Vietnam. Though (thankfully) he was not killed or captured, his left arm slammed into the canopy when he ejected, crippling him.

    My maternal grandfather was a torpedo-man in the US Navy during WWII. He missed Pearl Harbor by a few hours, and went on to survive the sinking of three destroyers on which he served (one was the USS Cooper). His brother, my Great Uncle, who was also in the US Navy, survived the Bataan Death March. Both were deeply affected by what they had experienced. Both came away with a hatred for war… tragically my uncle could never forgive his captors and died a very bitter old man. My grandfather hated the American Red Cross for their insensitivity during the war.

    My paternal grandfather had been a doctor in the US Health Service before WWII working on a cure for Hansen’s Disease (Leprosy). After Pearl Harbor he was commissioned in the US Army. He served in M.A.S.H. units in WWII and Korea.

    A Great Uncle of mine (Wilhelm or “Uncle Willy” as I called him), on my mother’s side, was a Prussian and a U-Boat Officer during WWI. His ship was captured by the British Royal Navy, and he emigrated to the US after the war. During WWII he worked for the US State Dept., providing information on the capabilities, armaments, tactics, etc. of the U-Boats of the German fleet.

    My father was a Communications Officer in the USAF during Vietnam. My step-father was an orthopedic surgeon in the USAF and was the on-call physician whenever Presidents Nixon or Ford were aboard Air Force One. His best friend during his service was a great surgeon and a good man, an Air Commodore in the RAF, Dr. Vera, from a small town North of London.

    I served for eight years as an enlisted man in the USMC, attaining the rank of Staff Sergeant, from the end of the First Gulf War to just prior to the Second Gulf War.

    • bsomebody says:

      I did my four in the USN. I was in during the latter part of the Cold War. I never saw combat, thank God. I did get to see Vladivosok from out at sea. I would have waved to our dear teacher, but she had not been born yet. My father was a career Marine. 21 years as an officer. He did two tours in ‘Nam, lived and died Marine Corps.

      • Dezdkado says:

        Before I joined the Corps I wanted to be Navy, just like my grandpa… and the Navy recruiter I went to wanted me to be a nuke tech on a sub… he was all ready to send me to Orlando for school when I changed my mind. Sometimes I wonder what would have been had I decided to be a glow-in-the-dark swabbie instead of a jarhead.

    • seesixcm6 says:

      Thank you for your service and for your family’s service. I served in the Army Signal Corps and then DOD decided to “loan” me to the USN to upgrade their electronics. I found out it was true that the Navy got better food than the ah, “calories” they provided in the Army.
      I don’t think the average civilian realizes how much Military service takes from you, physically and mentally. It took me a while to re-engage into civilian life.

      • Dezdkado says:

        It took me at least two years after I left the Corps to stop calling everyone a “piece-of-sh*t civilian.” Military life will make you see hardship and privilege with fresh eyes. I remember one of my USMC buddies telling me “We’ve worked so hard with so little for so long, that now we can do anything with nothing.”

      • orion_ss1 says:

        I was in for 20, now retired for 18, and I still find it hard to think nice things about civilians. I sometimes think my pony-tail is my only adaptation to civilian life. Please consider this a Veteran’s Day salute. Thankyou.

    • orion_ss1 says:

      I put in 20 in the Navy; 8 enlisted and 12 as an officer. One duty station was working with the Coast Guard ( and I proudly have two Coast Guard ribbons ).

      They seemed to have shooting everywhere I went overseas, although theoretically we were at peace for most of my service.

      My father was in the Army and two uncles were in the Navy; one had his ship sunk during WWII but he survived.

      My nephew was in the Air Force, and my girlfriend’s nephew has been to Iraq, and is still in the Army.

      Knock on wood I never knew anyone who died in combat, but sometimes surviving can be almost as bad. A friend came back from Nam a heck of a nice guy, but with rarely willing to share his experiences out loud.

      For everyone who reads this:
      Since ( most of us ) can’t directly salute the fallen, give thanks to those who made it through; and please don’t forget those still on the front lines. Even if you disagree with the war, even if you disagree with how the war is being fought, they ARE defending OUR freedom.

      FREEDOM ISN’T FREE.

      Semper Fi Marine. Sincerely.

    • My grandpa was an American outlaw who fled to Canada and signed up for WW1 at 69 years old.

      http://www.bikengruvin.com/wiliiamjamesmccelvey.htm

      He was a professional at changing his identity. He wrote a different name and that he was younger on his attestation paper… nobody really checked and he was in good enough health. He was apart of the 211th Battalion (Canadian Expeditionary Force – American Legion) at Vimy Ridge, France… came home, married a women 50 years younger and had 10 kids.

      He was 86 when my dad was born. My father was in the Canadian Navy for 10 years… out in the Pacific around the time of the Korean War.

      I was four years in USAF, where my toughest problem was keeping from falling asleep at the NSA (bored stiff). My overseas Morse-intercept posting was in Brindisi, Italy, which has a climate identical to my home town of Sacramento. My worst pain was that my back went out the day before I was to be discharged, requiring me to take an absolutely useless medical exam. Yeah, I had it really rough.

I’ve come up with about a dozen different ways to make them. I sometimes us tuna fish instead of shrimp. I like to use sea vegetables (aka sea weed), carrots, cucumbers, cilantro, etc. The rice paper is a fun challenge to work with. It takes a bit of practice to master.

      A salute for Captain Jack for Veterans Day… the USCG always gets overlooked.

      Captain, I have heard that the USCG has lost the authority of acquisition… Is this true?

      • CaptainJack says:

        Thank you sir! I served in the US Navy. But now I’m a part of the US Coast Guard as a licensed Merchant Mariner / Instructor. Im not familiar with this ‘authority of acquisition’. I’ll have to ask around for that answer.

        I just realized I missed Vets Day. :cry: I’ve had a difficult week with many project that over due for attention. I had an intruder board my yacht and attempted to enter my boat this week. They opened my back door but never entered. They closed the door and left. I didn’t see this take place but my sister woke me up at 3am to inform me of what happen. This almost never happens in the boating world. :cool: I was not able to capture the intruder on video because my computer froze, so I was not able to identify the intruder. Im not worried, and don’t expect this to ever happen again. Living on a boat is safer than living in house thats located in a large city. :smile: Most marinas have electronic gates, but this one doesn’t. :sad:

    • Dezdkado says:

      I sleep easier aboard ship… even in the bow, and even when the ship is corkscrewing. Perhaps your intruder was someone attempting to visit a boat in a neighboring berth? When he realized his mistake, he closed up and left… maybe? When I was a teen I helped my family to rebuild a 46′ sailing yacht (1973 Far East Trader… very sturdy craft). While I lived aboard no one could take a step from dock to ship (and vice versa) without my feeling it taking place…even when I slept. It made me feel secure, in a small way, to know I couldn’t be surprised. And yes, our marina had electronic gates too… but they didn’t always keep people out.

      • CaptainJack says:

        I sleep in the bow of this boat. It’s very cosy here.

        Nope, it was an intruder. I have very different boats next to me. One is a fishing boat the other is a racing sailboat. This is a tiny marina with about 12 boats in it. Can’t make a mistake on this one. The person also had prior knowledge on how to work the latch to the door. I also never assume its a ‘he’. Could have been a ‘she’.

        I have been working 12+ hours a day. I could sleep though a tsunami. Also my yacht moves all the time because of the ships that go by every 15 minutes or so. I also oiled the sliding door so its virtually silent when its opened.
        Funny thing about electronic gate is the keep people from the streets from just walking on to the docks but nothing to keep people from the water getting onto the dock or other boats. I think the electric gate are to limit yacht owners access to their yachts when they are late on their moorage fees. :shock:

    Dear Marina,

    I hate to overpost, but there is this other word a dear friend of mine and I found intriguing: “refrain.” In music, it means to repeat a certain part of melody, but in other contexts it means to stop doing what you are doing. How could the same word have almost opposite meanings?

    Thank you again for an interesting video.

    They do have vehicles that run on wind generators not ‘windmills’. Windmills are used to mill agricultural products, like flour.
    Wind generators can produce electricity which in turn can charge the battery of an electric vehicle also solar panels can do the same. :cool:

    Marina where does the word sex comes from?

  44. CaptainJack says:

    Word Request: California.

    I have been doing a bit of market research in L.A. and San Francisco, California area. I came across conflicting origins. Some say its Spanish for a wide bay. Others say its a combination of the Spanish words cala that means ensenada and the latin formix that means vault. Still I hear of a reference to a fictional island called California. Then I found out that it could been a combination of the Latin calida and forno into a word that roughly meant hot furnace. I think if I had to pick one I like the latter because my favorite appliance when I lived in Long Beach, Ca. was the air conditioner.

    I don’t need to know the etymology of this word to complete my research but was just a bit curious. :wink:

    • Che Volay says:

      I researched California years ago and found the same results as you, but I’m leaning towards the fictional island as referenced in a book.

      • CaptainJack says:

        Humm interesting. It seems that there is going to be more research involved than I have time for. Im a bit surprised that in all the years passed there is no definite origin agreed upon yet. Im thinking maybe a key book that has the answer might have been destroyed in a fire.

        Well I wouldn’t call it a superyacht. It’s not that fancy. Just yesterday I got lost in the engine room and had to use my GPS to find my way back to the salon.

You know I just counted how many boats I own. “4″!! :oops: Darn! Im running late for class. Got to go! bye. :-)

    • Dezdkado says:

      Here’s a quick excerpt from the Online Etymology Dictionary:

      California: name of an imaginary realm in “Las sergas de Esplandián” (“Exploits of Espladán”), a romance by Sp. writer Garci Ordóñez de Montalvo, published in 1510, which was said to have been influential among Sp. explorers of the New World and may have led them to misidentify Baja California as this land and mistake it for an island. Where Montalvo got the name and what it means, if anything, is a mystery.

      • CaptainJack says:

        I find that difficult to believe for how could they mistaken the west coast as an island unless they where referring to the islands just west of the mainland. Oh now this is just rising my curiosity a bit more. :roll:

      • Che Volay says:

        Didn’t the Spanish walk to the Pacific first and years later march to West coast before they ever sailed there around the South America.

      • bsomebody says:

        Remember Cap’n, Baja California is a relatively narrow peninsula. It could easily be mistaken for an island if the travellers did not go far enough north.
        It seems that I remeber the history similar to Che’s explanation. They did migrate by land very early. It would seem, then, that they would have to enter the peninsula by land. Coming from the north, they could not have mistaken it for an island. hmmm :???:

      • Dezdkado says:

        Yes, they did walk there first… I believe from Panama, and I think it was Balboa. He claimed the “South Sea” for Spain… and either he or Magellan named the sea Pacifica (Peaceful) because it was (to the observer) calmer than the Atlantic. Magellan sailed into the Pacific around 1500 C.E., before Cortez’s conquest of “New Spain”.

      • Dezdkado says:

        By walking there, I mean walking to the Pacific coast… not walking to Baja California or California proper.

      • bsomebody says:

        I know they did get into California very early. Spanish missions date from the mid-16th century. They got fairly far north, too, up towards San Fransisco.

      • Che Volay says:

        On the maps of not to long ago the body of water between the Baja and mainland MX was called the Sea of Cortez now I’ve noticed it is called the Sea of Mexico. Not sure when and why the name was changed.

      • Capman911 says:

        You wouldn’t believe what some people use to cool their machines. Ice water coolers, Freon cooling systems much like a fridge. I use multiple fans on my machines as Mijj is using on his.

      • mijj says:

        i didnt go for water cooling, Che .. it will run cool and quiet and wont need weird and wonderful cooling methods.

        dont need no other peripheral cards in there neither .. the integrated graphics on the chipset is good enough (i have no plans to play games on this).

        all i need to do now is connect up the motherboard, hard drive, power supply, and i/o connections.

        … but i’m gonna leave that til i’m enthused .. it’s pretty dreary stuff so i need to be alert.

      • mijj says:

        oh yeh .. after peering thoughtfully at all the options for the dip settings outlined in the motherboard manual .. i decided to leave em all at the default settings.

      looks to me that ‘Dominator refers to the fans, rather than the memory, but still has no effect on the validity of your comment on the name choice… ‘Dominator fans’ sounds equally absurd to me. :lol:

    • foxbow says:

      that site you linked earlier didn’t cover dual booting windows and MAc, if you want to dual boot you’d have take a whole different road….
      Also, I had kalyways mac osx 10.5, which worked…. but not as perfect as i’d like (there’s nothing wrong with it though, I even suggest you try that one first), so I installed the real mac thing, so no cracked version , after a long time of installing all kinds of patches and changing all kinds of kext files It finaly worked.
      I’m not gonna explain the whole proces, that would take way to long :lol
      I suggest you start hanging out at http://forum.insanelymac.com/
      I couldn’t have done it without that website, you can find everything on there that you will need to get you started on building your own hackingtosh.

      • mijj says:

        thanks .. i got a link to osx86project.org too … but those those links seem to be unavailable at the moment.

        i’ve dloaded a copy of osx 10.5.4 leopard .. but it needs to be hacked to get past the trusted machine thing ..

        … i think those sites have info on how to do that .. but i’m not keen on spending a lot of time on it and have it fail too.

        i think i might have one shot then drop it if there’s no progress.

      • mijj says:

        plus .. id really prefer to install the mac into a virtual machine, but i dont know if that’s feasible.

        plus .. do you know if the mac os needs partic graphics cards for the graphics to function well? … because i have no intention of using anything other than the integrated graphics on the chipset.

        • foxbow says:

          No, you don’t need any particular graphics card, although you need to configure mac to get it properly working with your graphics card.
          I have an onboard 950 GMA and after installing some kext files I got it working properly, At first I couldn’t change the screen resolution, but now i can.

    There is a slang word in Spanish to describe a man who is ‘pussy whipped’ by his wife. Not sure of the exact spelling, sounds like mantalon this translate roughly into apron or apron string.

    Further thought on the MX slang word mantalon concludes the definition is ‘to be tied to the apron of your wife’.

    Final Cut Studio 2 : £449

    i was planning to get
    Adobe Creative Suite 4 when that came out(about the same price) at a student discount.

    if i can get a big comparable student discount on FCS, i think i’ll consider a mac portable.

  51. mijj says:

    ok .. M uses Final Cut Pro (thanks pedantickarl – why dont i ever think of reading instructions/faqs/etc.?) .. which means iMovie which is free with mac isn’t good enough.

    Final Cut Pro sounds expensive.

  52. bsomebody says:

    @mijj. You prolly already found it, but here is what M says:
    What do you record and edit your videos with?
    The earlier videos were recorded on my MacBook using iMovie and edited with Final Cut Pro. The later videos are recorded on a Sony Camcorder, but again, recorded directly to my MacBook and edited on Final Cut Pro. Now I’m going back to recording on my MacBook again at times.. so it varies between the MacBook and the camcorder.

    The LAPD, The FBI, and the CIA are all trying to prove that they are the best at apprehending criminals. The President decides to give them a test. He releases a rabbit into a forest and has each of them try to catch it.

    The CIA goes in. They place animal informants throughout the forest. They question all plant and mineral witnesses. After three months of extensive investigations they conclude that rabbits do not exist.

    Then the FBI goes in. After two weeks with no leads they burn the forest, killing everything in it, including the rabbit, and they make no apologies. The rabbit had it coming.

    Then the LAPD goes in. They come out two hours later with a badly beaten raccoon. The raccoon is yelling: “Okay! Okay! I’m a rabbit! I’m a rabbit!”

        hahahhahahaa

    Perhaps he was just bored at Walden Pond and found that he had finally written something that somebody else would read.

  78. bsomebody says:

    I mean, who just pours their thoughts out on paper (or a comment board) for no apparent reason.

  79. bsomebody says:

    I do wonder, though, why Thoreau actually took the time to write it all down. He must have had some purpose for writing all that.

  80. bsomebody says:

    Whereas Thoreau was neither active or provacative. He just kind of jotted down his thoughts on stuff, paying little attention to pursuing a larger action of social change.

  81. bsomebody says:

    MLK and Gandhi were both very active and provocative, not passive.

  82. bsomebody says:

    Please notice that we use the nonviolence and not pacifism.

  83. bsomebody says:

    The widespread use of nonviolence with civil disobedience was not popularized until Gandhi and MLK.

  84. bsomebody says:

    Thoreau was definately not non-violent. He demonstrated great enthusiasm for John Brown after Brown’s raid on Harper’s Ferry.

  85. bsomebody says:

    His concern about ending the war or the practice of slavery seem to be peripheral, at best. He simply wanted to believe that he had no part in it.

  86. bsomebody says:

    My idea is that Thoreau was not in pursuit of social change; he simply wanted to exculpate himself of any active wrongdoing. His refusal to pay taxes was his method of “washing his hands” of the institution of slavery and the oppression of the Mexican War.

  87. bsomebody says:

    Many people attribute this phrase to Thoreau, but I am finding no evidence that he ever used it. His famous essay was not named “Civil Disobedience” until four years after he died.

  88. bsomebody says:

    I wonder if M could give me a quick note about when the term “civil disobedience” first came into popular use?

I see that you have over 131 million You Tube views (one for ever U.S. voter?). Your student body is swelling! So what’s with this strange word? What’s the origin of the word swell? Q :wink:

  95. stubbybassist says:

    Hey Hotforwords, I was wondering:

    Do the words “Cog” (as in a mechanical part) and “Cognitive” have any relation to one another? Also I would like to know where a word like this comes from.

    It would mean a lot to me if you could do this word, thank you.

    As far as the homework goes… I definitely like cooking ramen the most of any food. It is the food of champions.

    • CampKohler says:

      A few months ago I saw a TV segment on the explosive growth in sales and consumption of ramen in Mexico. The main concern was a lack of nutrition. Better slip a vitamin pill in there before eat it.

  96. mijj says:

    erm .. judging by my comments below .. i’m cluttering up this site with stuff that doesn’t belong here .. it’s really twitter stuff, isn’t it!!

  97. mijj says:

  98. mijj says:

    presumably, the flip side of the twitter assert-one’s-existence coin is .. does anyone care?

    … and so, i bet the dark core of twitter will be followers-angst.

  99. mijj says:

    ok .. just did a google for stuff about twitter .. it looks like it’s a means of continually asserting one’s existence. .. it could have been useful as a continual log .. but not enough characters allowed to log anything useful. .. so it’s about logging the fact that you’re still alive, basically.

  100. tok-715 says:

    An very good lesson dear Marina, short but sweet.

    In everyday use of language, practicalities such as ease of pronunciation and comprehension are prioritized over the correctness of the word, and thus it is no surprise that so many common words get simplified. In this case, a napron can easily be confused as an apron, so no surprise there.

    Napron means cloth in french, and this terminology again seems to be out of simple practicality, since to someone who knows not about the word “apron”, it is just a piece of cloth for protection.

    Since you live as a single and independent woman, I’m not surprised by your choice of soup, since simplicity and nutrition are very important to someone like you who’s always on some mission.

    Miso soup? I’m not Japanese myself, but I enjoy it too since it’s both delicious and healthy. Personally, I don’t exactly consider myself a master chef by any stretch of the imagination, but I’m a practical guy and will cook according to ingredient availability, nutrition, taste and of course, time efficiency. I’m not too fussed about what I cook an eat as long as it is nutritious and delicious. :smile:

  101. mijj says:

    and .. will the population of this site lose its twitter users? … or at least, be less frequent visitors?

  102. mijj says:

    I’m pretty sure if you get involved with twitter it’s a great way to keep communicating with a bunch of people .. but .. doesnt it eat into your existence?

  114. CampKohler says:

    My favorite is what we call in our family French pancakes (crepes). The recipe is 1c flour, 1 egg, 1/8th tsp salt and 1 c milk + add milk until it is like thick cream. You can add 1/2 tsp of nutmeg, cinnamen and vanilla for extra flavor. Spoon enough into a hot, oiled skillet to roll it around and cover the bottom. Flip when golden brown. Spread with butter, sugar and sprinkle with lemon juice; it should be juicy. Mmmmmm. Some like a warm strawberry and fruit spread, but this is herosy.

    Hi Marina

    Can you Please do the the origin for the term, “Scape goat”?
    Thanks!

    • bsomebody says:

      Not stealing M’s thunder, but check out the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur.

    • Dezdkado says:

      Leviticus 16 will give you more information concerning the scapegoat (Azazel). Leviticus 23 will give you a general view of the appointed feast days, including Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement).

      Theologically, the scapegoat carries away the sins of the people into the wilderness. Similarly, in our common usage, a scapegoat takes the blame for another man’s crime.

      The English term “scapegoat” was coined by a famous Protestant scholar (and philologist), William Tyndale. Tyndale was the first to translate the Bible into English directly from Greek and Hebrew texts. However, he also used the Latin Vulgate. He also used the “new” medium of print.

      Scapegoat comes from Tyndale’s translation (1530 C.E.) of the Latin phrase “caper emissarius” (one who is taken and sent out), which is a Vulgate mistranslation of the Hebrew “azazel” (or “ez ozel” meaning “goat that departs” or “goat for going away”). Tyndale combined “scape”, a shortened form of “escape” (in a literary practice common from the 13th to 17th centuries), and “goat” to form “scapegoat” (or escapegoat)… essentially, the goat that escapes from being sacrificed.

  123. Evan Owen says:

    A U.S. Marine squad was marching north of Basra when they came upon an Iraqi insurgent, badly injured and unconscious.

    On the opposite side of the road was an American Marine in a similar but less serious state. The Marine was conscious and alert and as first aid was given to both men, the squad leader asked the injured Marine what had happened.

    The Marine reported, “I was heavily armed and moving north along the highway here, and coming south was a heavily armed insurgent. We saw each other and both took cover in the ditches along the road.

    “I yelled to him that Saddam Hussein is a miserable, lowlife scumbag, and he yelled back that Senator Ted Kennedy is a good-for-nothing, fat, left-wing liberal drunk.

    So I said that Osama Bin Laden dresses and acts like a frigid, mean spirited woman!” He retaliated by yelling, “Oh yeah? Well so does Hillary Clinton!”

    “And, there we were, standing in the middle of the road, shaking hands, when a truck hit us.”

        A woman walks into a shop that sells expensive Persian Rugs.

        Looking around, she spots the perfect rug, walks over and inspects it.

        As she bends to feel the texture of the rug she farts loudly.

        Very embarrassed she looks around nervously to see if anyone has noticed her ‘little accident’ and hopes a sales person does not pop up right now.

        As she turns back, there standing next to her is a salesman. “Good day Ma’am, how may we help you today?”

        Very uncomfortably she asks, “How much does this rug cost?”

        He answers, “Lady if you farted just touching it, you’re gonna crap your pants when you hear what the price is.”

      The young lady, tiring of trying to start up a conversation, said, “You know, you should lighten up a little. Relax and enjoy yourself.”

      The Sergeant Major just stared at her in his serious manner.

      Finally the young lady said, “You know, I hope you don’t take this the wrong way, but when is the last time you had sex?”

      “1955, ma’am.”

      “Well, there you are. You really need to chill out and quit taking everything so seriously! I mean, no sex since 1955! She took his hand and led him to a private room where she proceeded to “relax” him several times.

      Afterward, panting for breath, she leaned against his bare chest and said, “Wow, you sure didn’t forget much since 1955!”

      The Sergeant Major, glancing at his watch, said in his matter-of-fact voice, “I hope not, it’s only 2130 now.”

      A little boy was sitting on the curb with a gallon of turpentine and shaking it up and watching all the bubbles. A little while later a Priest came along and asked the little boy what he had.

      The little boy replied, “This is the most powerful liquid in the world, it’s called turpentine.”

      The Priest said, “No, the most powerful liquid in the world is Holy Water. If you take some of this Holy Water and rub it on a pregnant woman’s belly, she’ll pass a healthy baby.”

      The little boy replied, “You take some of this here turpentine and rub it on a cat’s ass and he’ll pass a Harley Davidson.”

    Dear Marina,

    My favorite food to cook is fish. I love a simple broiled preparation with maybe some olive oil. Good stuff.

    We were thinking the other day at the office about why we use the word “trim” to refer to cutting a tree down to size and also adding to the tree, in the case of the Christmas tree. We also use the word in the context of having a turkey “with all the trimmings” meaning with all the extra good stuff. My thought is that the original word means physically cutting something to make it look better and the connection is to make something look better, like a finished look, by adding to it.

    Might you investigate?

    Best regards,

    Louie

    My favorite thing to cook (and eat): Vegetarian Omelet. First I chop a quarter of a peeled apple into chunks; then I do the same with a quarter of a raw 0nion. Then I chop up a small dill pickle, various olives and other additives. I place all of these these in a small jar along with two or three eggs and a small amount of salt. I put the lid on the jar and shake it until all of the contents are mixed evenly. I previously warmed a small skillet with peanut oil added. Now I add the contents of the jar. The fire should be on full heat as soon as you add the contents of the jar; the timing of the rest of the procedure is very important. Once the bottom of the omelet is browned, flip it over and do the other side. If you cook it too long, it will burn, but if you don’t cook it long enough, it will be runny. Once you get it perfect, it’s really good.

    I call this a “Frisco Omelet” (My last name is Frisco)

    I finally got to see Marina’s pr0n video. :lol:
    Isn’t that what she said, a pr0n?
    I usually leave most of the cooking to my wife because she’s so good at it. If I cook, it’s mostly European dishes which she doesn’t like; even if she says it tastes good, she prefers her Thai food, which she prepares days in advance. She lives to eat and is always thinking about what to have for the next meal or next week, even whilst still eating the current meal.
    I, on the other hand, eat to live, and usually can’t think about what I want till I feel hungry, so I tend to cook things which can be done quickly.
    Having said that, this Sunday I spent a long time making a Cullen Skink.
    The link gives a basic recipe, but I usually add chopped leeks, or experiment with adding other ingredients.
    One of my wife’s specialities is chicken with rice, which doesn’t sound very interesting, but tastes great because the rice is cooked in the soup left after boiling the chicken; and, of course it’s accompanied by a spicy sauce. It’s called “Khao Mun Gai” – is that what you were eating yesterday, Marina?

        I like to make thick-sliced ham,pancakes and over-easy eggs with toast for breakfast,but,bacon or deer sausage will substitute well for the ham. A well maintained and well used,large,heavy cast iron skillet is the best to cook breakfast in.The cakes need real butter too,margarine will work but real butter and good syrup top it nicely. Dip the toast in the egg yolk and stuff it in My maw joined by a big,syruppy bite of buttery pancake,,then a bite of ham too!

          His Omnipotence means power to do all that is intrinsically possible, not to do the intrinsically impossible. You may attribute miracles to him, but not nonsense. This is no limit to his power. :smile: [cat] If you choose to say ‘God can give a creature free will and at the same time withhold free will from it,’ you have not succeeded in saying anything about God: meaningless combinations of words do not suddenly acquire meaning simply because we prefix to them the two other words ‘God can.’… It is no more possible for God than for the weakest of his creatures to carry out both of two mutually exclusive alternatives; not because his power meets an obstacle, but because nonsense remains nonsense even when we talk it about God.

    So for me cooking transcends all multi-cultural barriers it is the great equalizer which brings us all together.

    I also stole a friend soup recipe for southwestern chicken and made it into a regular meal. Cook the chicken breasts with cayenne pepper. When cooked ad a splash of vinegar, a can of diced tomatoes, a can of corn, and a can of black beans. When this starts steaming turn off the heat and add shredded cheese and let it melt before serving. ( And only one pan to clean! :grin: )

      Classic English Scones-
      Crisp Outside, Flaky Inside

      Use big chunks of cold butter, barely mixed in, for the ideal texture

      BY JACQUIE LEE

      My mother was half Chinese and my father was English, so naturally teatime was important in my parents’ home. Tea-drinking in our family, however, was nothing compared with the Tea-drinking rituals I experienced while visiting my grandmother in England. She would sit, rather regally, taking individual orders for tea, a silver pot of extra-hot water standing ready. But more important to me, she served scones.
      My passion for this crisp-tender teacake began at my grandmother’s table but was fueled by my later travels around England. From Salmon Leap in Devon, where I devoured marvelous round scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream, to ultra-upscale Harrod’s in London where the scones are served with a side order of pomp and ceremony, I tasted enough scones to develop my own idea of the perfect scone.

      JUDGING A PROPER SCONE

      I always like to see what other bakeries have to offer, and I am continually amazed at what is passed off as a scone. For me scone should be crispy outside and flaky inside; it should not have a cakey texture. Also, if I prefer scones cut into triangles, probably because they’re less likely to be confused with American style biscuits.

      THIS QUICK DOUGH HAS THREE BASIC PARTS: FLOUR, BUTTER, AND A BUTTERMILK BINDER

      Scones are made from a few simple, basic ingredients, but it’s the way those ingredients are worked together that makes the difference between an ordinary scone and one that’s exceptional. The key to flaky scones is to mix the dough as little as possible, keeping the butter in large chunks.
      Almost any flour will do. The basic scone recipe (near bottom of this comment) requires no special flours; I’ve eaten wonderful scones made with all purpose flour. But because baking is my business I prefer to use a blend of organic, unbleached bread and pastry flours. In particular I like to bake with Giustos flours (available from Bob’s Red Mill, 503.654.3215), a brand of organic flours that I believe makes the lightest and flakiest scones. Blending bread flour and pastry flour helps me further fine tune the dough’s strength and tenderness. It can be fun to try several different kinds of bread and pastry flour and see the characteristics each contributes.
      For the best flavor, nothing beats unsalted butter. I’ve tried many scone recipes that use a vegetable shortening or lard, but I always come back to unsalted butter. The butter’s flavor is an important part of the scones rich taste. It’s also the ingredient responsible for the scones crisp flaky texture.
      Chilling the butter-and keeping it chilled-is a critical step towards a great scone: you wanted to remain in fairly large pieces and not get squashed into the flour as you mix. When scones are thrust into a very hot oven the butter will melt and bubble its way through the dough, leaving lots of little crevices in its wake.
      Buttermilk holds it all together. I make my scones with buttermilk because I like the tangy taste; besides, with all the butter in the scones, the fat in ordinary milk isn’t needed. What is important is that you don’t over-mix the dough when you add the buttermilk. This can be a hard call if you’ve never made scones before. The difference in flours and climates and how the liquid is absorbed by the dry ingredients can make the critical moment difficult to judge. Just remember that when you add the liquid you should mix just until the dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl. If not all of the flour is getting moist, add a little more liquid.
      A crust of coarse sugar. I paint the tops of the scones with a little more buttermilk before giving them a sprinkle of turbinado sugar. The large, unrefined grains of this sugar give the scones a really crisp top. You can find turbinado sugar at many natural- and specialty-food stores. Substitute ordinary sugar for the turbinado if you like; the tops just won’t be as crunchy.

      CURRANTS, CRANBERRIES, CHERRIES, AND OTHER ACCENT FLAVORS
      Currants are a traditional favorite, but there are endless variations on the basic scone. You can add dried cranberries or dried cherries-simply add ½ cup or so to the recipe. Grated citrus zest (particularly orange) lends a wonderful fragrance. Bittersweet chocolate bits make a delicious-if untraditional-scone. Or, for an even racier scone, try a combination of orange zest and chocolate. Add dried fruit and flavorings after the butter and before the liquid.
      Fresh blueberries are also delicious in scones, but because fresh fruits are moist and tend to clump together in the dough, dust them with the little flour before mixing them into the dough. As with the dried fruit, add the blueberries after the butter and before the buttermilk. You can use frozen blueberries; just don’t defrost them or they’ll become mushy and you’ll have purple scones.

      FREEZE LEFTOVER SCONES
      If you have any leftover scones, freeze them. Call them completely and reheat at 350° F for about 7 minutes. Serve with a bit of tea to get the day started or as an afternoon respite, however, your freshly baked scones probably won’t be around long enough to have any leftovers.

      Orange-Scented English Scones

      Add ½ cup dried currants, dried cranberries, dried cherries, bits of chocolate, or fresh blueberries to create a variety of scones. Yields 8 medium scones.


      8 oz. (1 ¾ cups) all-purpose flour (or 1 cup organic bread flour plus ¾ cup organic pastry flour)
      2 tsp. baking powder
      ½ tsp. kosher salt
      1 Tbs. sugar
      Grated zest of 1 medium orange
      4 oz. (8 Tbs.) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/3- inch cubes
      ¾ cup buttermilk
      2 Tbs. turbinado sugar (optional)

      Heat the oven to 400° F. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in an electric mixer. Using the paddle attachment, mix in the orange zest. Add the butter and mix just until coated with flower. The butter trunks should remain fairly large-no less than half their original size. With the mixer set on a slow speed, add 2/3 cup of the buttermilk and mix until just absorbed. Stop mixing when the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
      Scrape the dough from the bowl in shaped into a ball. With well-floured fingers, pat the dough into a 7-inch diameter disk. Cut the disk into quarters and then again into eighths. Set the scones on a baking sheet lined with kitchen parchment and brush the tops with the remaining buttermilk. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar and bake until well browned, about 15 to 20 minutes.

      Scone, scon, scoon – how do you say it?

      A young English friend of mine claims that whenever he hears scone pronounced with a long “o,” like own, his whole body begins to shudder. He says that it’s correctly pronounced scon. So as not to cause him bodily harm, I tried for some time to shorten up my up “o”.
      Then I heard from another in bush friend who said, “I grew up in a working-class family, and we pronounced it with the long ‘o’. To pronounce it scon was considered very hoity-toity.”
      Later I was reminded that the Stone of Scone- a chunk of rock that forms a base of the coronation chair in Westminster Abbey-is pronounced scoon. So, it would appear that it’s scone for the working-class, scon for the upper class, and scoon for the royal family.
      With that tantalizing but inconclusive bit of information, choose your own, on, or oon pronunciation and start baking.

        Buon appetito!

    I would like to know the origin of the word “smite” as in, “to smite your enemy”.

    HOMEWORK: I’m not that good of a cook, I usually eat out. But if I decided to stay home and eat, I usually keep it simple and boil up some spaghetti and heat up some mushroom marinara. :smile:

    My favorite thing to cook (and eat) is pot roast with potatoes and carrots in a slow cooker.

    Marina,
    How about a HotForWords cook book?

    Ah nuts, now I’m hungry, apron time.

    I usually get the Miso Soup that comes with my Sushi order, along with Green Tea and the Ginger Salad. :smile:
    I often order the Rainbow and Snake Rolls. Sometimes I’ll order one of their specialty rolls called the Happy Days and… I think it’s called Spicy Tuna (or I may be confusing it for something else). All I know for now is that it is coated with 4 different colored roe.

    Dear совершенная Marina, Your legs so beautiful in your short-shorts! I appreciate that you have many short-shorts! :razz:
    To answer your question, I enjoy cooking many different dishes, such as home-made pizza, chili, spagetti and meatballs, egg rolls, meatloaf and others. But tonight, I’m cooking curry chicken, which I stir-fry with fresh onions and green peppers and serve over steamed rice. Why? Because I saw your Twitter post about enjoying chicken and rice. :smile:
    The apron is a protective garment. Sometimes I will also wear gloves to protect myself from splatter when deep-frying or when cooking barneque at a grill. I have some scars from times I didn’t wear gloves! Your dear student, seesixcm6

      I know what you mean Seesix, I deep fry a turkey each year for Thanksgiving and like you said if you don’t have on gloves it is very painful on the hands and fingers.

      • CampKohler says:

        What do you do with the used oil? It gets kind of expensive to use all that oil just for one turkey, doesn’t it? I had one fried like that and it was great.

        Do you keep a camera going on it in case anything becomes, uh, suitable for posting?

      • Capman911 says:

        A CampKohler, I strain the used oil and reuse it in the deep frying in my house. Peanut oil will last a while when kept cold. Plus I call different neighbors and they us the deep fryer after I get through with it, so it gets used about three or four times that day. Some of them go in on the price of the oil so that cuts down the cost.

      • Dezdkado says:

        Peanut oil is great… higher cooking temp, reusable, doesn’t transfer the flavor of one food to another…

        If you’re willing to try it, diesel engines can burn used cooking oil.

      • CampKohler says:

        What about going the other way — cooking your turkey in diesel?

  178. Capman911 says:

    Hey Marina it sounds like you said Mesa soup. Is it a Mexican soup ?

  179. duffman8815 says:

    Hey Marina! I would like to request something. It’s not a word persae, but more of a number. My friend was telling me that the answer to life, the universe and everything was “42″ and that is all there is to it…i was wondering if you can do some investigating because i couldn’t figure it out. A lil help?:P haha thanks and i like to cook/grill carne asada or some chicken! yuM!!!

    HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT:

    I like to cook spaghetti. Tomorrow, I’ll be making stir-fried spaghetti with bamboo, onion and bell pepper. :grin:

  181. Capman911 says:

    I don’t have a favorite thing to cook. I just through stuff together and eat. :smile:
