  1. I've always been intrigued by that.. im going to take a pic of the section of hot sauces on our shelf tomorrow and see how it compares to how much space is dedicated to it in your grocery store up there. :P

    I finally got around to taking some pics the other day. I uploaded them to my random gallery, and heres the pics:

  2. Those Sriracha chips definitely had a great flavor. :nod:

     

    I have never seen either of those chips before. O_O I'll definitely have to try the flamas. I used to not be able to handle spiciness. I eventually built up my taste buds for it over the years. In hind sight, I wish I could have tried the super hot doritos back in the day:

  3. Good points.

     

    This actually reminds me of an article from NPR:

     

    http://www.npr.org/2010/11/10/131216486/in-israel-when-is-a-jew-not-jewish-enough

     

    In Israel, they don't consider moderate Jews to even be Jewish. Its an interesting read, because all these people that think they are Jewish and contribute money, time and service to their beliefs are considered second hand citizens and not Jewish according to their religious laws. Which more of less throws their cherry picking beliefs back at them because they don't follow every orthodox law.

     

    Many people pick and choose what they believe and then call the other people in the news "Religious extremists".. Its not that they are extremists, these are the people that are following their scriptures. Everyone else only believes what they want to regardless of what is actually portrayed in their holy books.

  4. I'd love the full separation of church and state.. but what I'd like just as much is the separation of church and everything. I have never gone 1 day in my life without someone referencing something religious. Whether its the local news talking to some priest that had a prayer vigil for a murdered teen, or anything on facebook. Its always there. Its not as bad as in Pakistan or some of the muslim countries where they broadcast over loud speakers that its time for prayer. But still, we have the right of religious freedom in the US. But its more like we have the right to not have a religious affiliation, but not the right to be protected from it.

     

    I know I'm not being accosted by people that want to hammer me in the head with a bible. But what I would like is not have it pushed on me. Some people want to shield their children from violence or graphic scenes on television and there are warnings for it. But in terms of religion its up to the person presenting the news or the director of the movie / tv shows and there are no warnings for it. I can only assume that the people pushing their religious beliefs in these programs, news, movies, internet images, etc. know they are emphasizing their beliefs. They are not ignorant of that, but the true ignorance is like what you said.. they pick and choose their beliefs. If they pick and choose their beliefs they should consider themselves agnostic and stop slamming the cross image on everything especially considering that the more orthodox people of that same religion are the people that are spearheading the very arguements many self proclaimed christians are against.

  5. Youtube is really pushing the "Use your real name" option every time I log into youtube. No youtube I do not want to use my real name at this point. Anyway, I think it would be really funny that someday all the trolls out their will accidentally click that option and all their FAP posts in the past would then show up as being posted by their real life name. And if connected into their facebook accounts all their friends can graph search their friends name with videos they liked just to see all their FAP comments show up in their results. Whats really disturbing is that some ppl are using their real names and posting FAP comments. Disgusting individuals.

  6. If men could carry children from conception to birth like in the movie "Junior", and it was possible for a woman who does not want to bring a baby to full term to have that fetus transplanted into the man that got her pregnant, I bet the amount of men pushing for fetus rights and anti abortion laws would drop significantly. I'd love to see some rapist asshole have to carry a child to full term in jail and if there is a miscarriage he would face murder charges as well.

     


  7. The only ingredient you may or may not find is that Buck's Seasoning.. if you can't find it you can substitute it with more seasoned salt. And don't worry about the brands. The ones I generally buy are the cheapest dollar a bottle ones. Any brand will really do as I've never seen any major quality difference in a single spice.. I'm sure if my taste buds were better I could probably tell, but I'm pretty low brow. :P

    btw, if you want to kick up this rub a bit more, substitute "smoked paprika" for regular paprika. Its supposed to give you a more grilled flavor.. I've never tried smoked paprika though, because its about 8x more expensive compared to regular paprika.. about $6 for a small bottle compared to the $1 large bottle in the pic above. I'll try it the next time I make a batch of rub though.
