Molavian: Seems like it'd be cold as all hell in the winter, with the added bonus of making sure you're f*cked in case of more than a day or two of bad weather.



They would have noticed that, but they moved in before it was cool.

I just want people from other states to realized that we have settled hipsters from all over the country in Portland, thus ceding a portion of our beautiful state for the betterment of the rest of the nation.

You're welcome.

DON.MAC: So how fast will that tenderbox go once there is a spark?


It depends on if she likes you. Most women decide if they're gonna f*ck a guy within 10 seconds of meeting them.

Did a thread about pretentious microhome owners really devolve into a flame war over what type of woks are used in China?

max_pooper: gweilo8888: TuteTibiImperes: gweilo8888: Dear people who buy a cast-iron "wok": You have completely missed the point of woks, and should kill yourselves now. Kthxbye.

Cast iron woks can make sense for a home kitchen.  The idea behind most wok cooking is very fast at very high heat.  Most home ranges can't produce the BTU output woks are traditionally meant to be used with.   Cast iron retains heat better than carbon steel so you can take the time to bring it up to searing temps on a home range and not have it lose that heat as soon as you throw the cold food into it, thus cooking your food in a way similar to how it would be done with a lighter weight steel wok on a wok burner.

No, they do not. If you think they do, then you do not know what a wok is for, pure and simple.

A wok should be able to cool down just as quickly as it heats up. A cast iron wok cannot do so, and therefore it is useless.

Also note that using a cast-iron wok does not somehow make up for a stove with insufficient thermal output; using a thin wok you will get just the same heat. The only point of cast iron is, as you note, that it takes longer to cool down, but if you're cooking enough to cool down the wok then you're trying to cook too much at once.

Go live in China and watch how locals use woks. I did. It will prove enlightening.

ArcadianRefugee: Shhhh. He thinks he knows something. Just let him have this one.

Aww, how cute. You're mocking others when you don't have the first farking clue what you're talking about.

Want proof? Go to China -- where you will find many people cooking on single, portable electric hot plates or small disposable gas canisters -- and find me the cast-iron woks they'll all be using, if your theory of wok usage is correct.

Note: They do not exist there, because they are completely useless as woks. What you will see being used is extremely lightweight, flimsy woks which transfer what heat the stove *does* manage to make as quickly as possible, rather than heat- ...


I have watched Yao Ming shoot free throws so if you guys have a question about Chinese culture just ask me.

It sounds like a good idea until someone farts.

Would be great to brag that you cleared out a whole house with one fart though.


What makes you think I can't do that now?

yakmans_dad: I do genealogy, and the combination of online census data and Google Street View lets me easily see the houses my ancestors lived in. Sometimes, there were 9 people in a shotgun (or camelback[1]) house. Several of them adult children of the parent units. I can't imagine my family was very distinctive in that regard.

Microhouses only reflects the fact that we've regressed from the economic forces we emerged with following WW2,

[1] A camelback is like a shotgun except with a 2nd story room at the rear of the property.
