Boiled bananas... [Feb. 7th, 2016|10:29 pm]
The Question Club

zolotaev

Today I talked to my friend from Tanzania. Word by word , what are you doing etc. And he said « I’m eating boiled bananas with beef «

Boiled bananas , Carl !

I asked « what the hell ? Boiled bananas ? « , and he was really surprised as he found out that we’re not eating things like these . He says it’s « spicy « and yummy yummy :)))

He promised me to give the recipe .

So , has somebody ever ate boiled bananas ????

Is it worthy to try to boil them ? What does it tastes like ???

Do (or have you) ever taken the loose artificial flowers that have fallen of their stems at crafts stores?

If you work (or have worked) at a store with artificial flowers, what is the view on people doing this? What do you guys do with them?

anyone in here have your wisdom teeth pulled out while you were awake and have an okay time with it?

I have top ones only, I don't want to go under general anesthesia if I don't have to, the dentist said they could just numb me.

no wisdom teeth horror stories please, I'm freaked out and depressed enough about this.

If someone you never met were to go into your living space, what assumptions do you think that person would make of you based on what's around?

Tonight, after making dinner, I wanted some mustard. I opened the fridge and there was none. That's when I realized that, because of the Asian market just down the street, I have more Asian sauces, ingredients, and condiments, than any other genre of food. It's like I have to have someone come over and westernize my kitchen. I wonder if someone rummaging through my fridge would think I was from south east Asia.

To those of you who observe Lent - what are you doing for it this year?
I will be giving up meat for Lent. Last year I didn't eat out during the 40 days.

To those who don't - how do your diets now compare to the diets you had as children? If you are vegetarian now, was your family? If you eat healthy now, did you eat healthy as a child?

I'm thinking of getting one of those nifty electrified mattress covers so the bed can be warm before I get in it, and possibly stay warm if it's a super cold night. Worth the investment? Will such a thing work well for a couple where one person sleeps hot and the other is usually shivering at night?

This is my real life scenerio [Feb. 3rd, 2016|12:39 pm]
The Question Club

inmyblueheaven
Imagine that you are American, but you have been living for a few years in Mexico with your partner, who is Mexican, and his family. You have been encouraging one of your brothers-in-law, who you have noticed is super smart, to take an IQ test. Finally he does, and scores super ridiculously high. He has lived all his life here in Mexico, where he has been significantly limited by poverty, and where no one has helped him recognize or understand the full degree of his potential. Now he is 36 years old. He's had a so-so formal education, but he has also studied and developed himself intellectually and in question of wisdom, all on his own.

You know that this IQ score will open doors for him, in question of studying in schools and programs in other countries (which can offer him more than his own). To a great degree it will make economic hindrances irrelevant. What are some career paths that he might consider at this point in his life?

To give you context of the IQ test scale:
*approx 100 -- Normal, average
*120 -- Very intelligent
*approx 140 -- Genius begins
*160 -- Einstein's IQ
*200 -- High Genius begins: famous people who have made giant contributions to humanity fall in this range.

My brother-in-law scored: 203.

Do you have private bits of elevator etiquette? Do you get annoyed if other people seem not to share them?

Is there anything like official elevator etiquette?

By "elevator" I don't only mean within the actual lift, but also waiting for the elevator, navigating getting on/getting off, etc.

Do you agree that wanting to be thanked for a gift, or to have a gift acknowledged, makes it not a gift?

The quote above is in response to a post asking what one should do when a gift card, loaded with a considerable amount of money, is sent in the mail along with a regular card but no response is ever received.

Even an email asking if the person got the card went unanswered, so the poster was thinking about simply not sending future gifts.

What would you do in such a case?

Vinegar, corned beef, and birds? [Feb. 2nd, 2016|09:58 am]
The Question Club

vvalkyri
Short form: 1) is there even any vinegar in corned beef bought at the meat counter? I don't have access to the label, but my googling indicates not. 2) were there vinegar in the recipe would that be a problem for birds? Best I can tell, not.

3) how in the hell am I ever going to survive my stepmother?

So my stepmother is ...trying. Very trying. At my father's request I bought some corned beef and cabbage the other day. Didn't cook it in the evening 'cause my stepmother doesn't like the cooking scent. Went to cook yesterday morning but couldn't find any of the proper pots. Borrowed a pot but didn't want to leave something on the range without me in the afternoon, so got up this morning to start cooking .... And found this note in the fridge instead of the corned beef package, with the excuse that boiling the beef could kill the birds that keep dad company.

The note instead of the beefCollapse )
A quick google got me

http://www.cockatielcottage.net/hazards.html

...or I did find https://www.beautyofbirds.com/vinegar.html saying heated vinegar has killed birds. But the page seems to be an apple cider vinegar advert.

And http://www.thebirdschool.com/parrot-health/parrot-vinegar-scare-on-facebook-is-false-information/#.VrC_YWK9KSM says that the dishwasher thing is impossible, but that lots of vinegar in the air is indeed an irritant.

That all said, the package of corned beef is not full of vinegar! http://amazingribs.com/recipes/beef/home_made_corned_beef.html
https://www.google.com/search?q=is+there+vinegar+in+corned+beef&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&client=safari


Dad is actually even more annoyed than I am.

Okay, so this question is for all my fellow otaku people out there.
I can't decide on what anime to watch next. I've read about quite a few and feel a bit overwhelmed by all the choices I have. So many of them sound so intriguing!

I've seen and LOVED these already:

- Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan
- Noragami
- Tokyo Ghoul
- Ao Haru Ride/Blue Spring Ride
- Charlotte
- Plastic Memories
- Death Note
- Dragon Ball Z (of course. :P)
- Kimi ni Todoke
- 5 Centimeters per Second
- Any of the Studio Ghibli films

Soooo, any recommendations?

What would TQC recommend to stop a skirt from flapping up with a gust of wind?

I have bike shorts and leggings I wear for just this scenario, but I wonder if there's any other skirt hacks someone has figured out.
