It's a cure for penicillin, subby. You'll thank me one day.

there's nothing slow about how fast the gunk in my fridge is evolving. I think it's going to earn a bachelors degree before I do.

I thought getting the clap required having sex with someone else.

It still won't be able to get a decent job, but it will have achieved the appropriate amount of cultural brainwashing, so it's got that going for it, which is nice.

You can't stop the mold from grow-ing.

I once found a bowl of macaroni and cheese in my dorm room closet. I looked at it, curious, and it had a layer of green and white mold on top. I almost took photographs for someone in my university's biology department to identify it.

My roommate was as surprised as I was.

Incidentally, this thread is the reason why I now know how much whale fat has been used in the American diet throughout history.

You'd need more than one. The American melting pot is built from many cuisines, each one bastardized to fit.

I don't know. I saw it a year ago when I was out here.

I didn't think it was that good, but it was certainly educational.

Let's just say it's no Triple D or Restaurant Impossible.

Wow even NPR is now photodumping their articles, just placing photos of people, places, and things without any captions or context. Looking at pictures placed with authorial intent but captionless makes me feel stupid. And I don't need any help with that, NPR.

I don't know about those others, we don't have cable. It's all streaming/torrents/newsgroups. Also, a quick google search says it's currently on hiatus, with only a couple, few episode being released the past handful of years.

They run late in the evening, so I imagine a handful is enough to carry them through a couple months.

I'm happy for the guy. I just wish the programs were better.

The creature that lives in the refrigerator, behind the mayonnaise, next to the ketchup and left or the coleslaw?  His name is Bert.

It was fun watching his OCD displays at the counter. But I think it's all in reruns.

Now, now. Every American market has a museum area where the items are for show and not for eating. It's called the "produce section".

Clearly the NPR reporter didn't bother to walk down the block to the National Museum of American History.

I cleaned out my fridge a few years back because I got sick of my roomates messes in it and her telling me "tomorrow" when I asked her about it. The crisper was full of disgusting black sludge and the various food containers had many forms of mold. Of course she got pissed at me and I handed her the bag I put it in and told her she could keep whatever she wanted. She dropped it after that.

Room mate had a non-stick rice cooker (present) right out of college that he detested. He put it in the window sill with about two cups of white rice still inside.  It was relatively sealed with a clear glass lid that the sun shone through for - several - weeks.The surface turned several pretty shades, mostly of green, (some yellow/red iirc), and the rice slowly disappeared; until there was only grey 'dust' in the bottom.

It actually 'ate' whole portions of the non-stick surface...

/This was like 1985. The damned thing seemed to make rice at two settings, 1/3 raw, or 2/3rds overcooked.
//I have several friends that swear by them now, but it was such an evil thing I've never used one since - always make rice in a small pressure cooker - comes out great every time.

Had to think about it for a minute, but maybe Washington, D.C.?  Pork seems to excite them, there.
