FTFA:"I almost always have oatmeal for breakfast (for 20-plus years): Steel-cut oats cooked the night before, left on the stove to heat up in the morning."

Nothing like a little food poisoning to get you going in the morning

Meh.  You really want to punish them?  You need to go with thermonuclear cabbage.

Half a jar of that and your turds will salute and call you "Sir" when they come out.

dittybopper: Half a jar of [spicy kimchi] and your turds will salute and call you "Sir" when they come out.


...I guess? Eating kimchi or cabbage of any description never had any effect on my digestion. Also the kimchi that I bought at the Korean grocery store that used to be a few blocks away was hot enough that most people probably couldn't eat half a jar at one meal. I miss that place.

My lunch is usually drawn from a small set of choices: Sandwich, fruit, cookies or half sandwich, fruit, microwaved ramen bowl or microwave pizza, fruit. No one's ever in the office any more, so going out happens rarely.

Also, "white cabbage" was mentioned in the article. I have never seen that at the grocery store, just green and red. What am I missing here?

So most cabbage in the USA is "white cabbage" even though the signs at the grocery store call it "cabbage" or "green cabbage" and it's pale green, not white. TMYK. Now to see if farmer's markets have heirloom hipster varietal cabbage....

I've eaten a lot of kimchi before, even redder and with a farkton of garlic and ginger in it. Never had that happen.

The Emperor Diocletian retired from being Emperor of the Roman Empire so he could go back to his homeland of Dalmatia (modern day Croatia) to grow cabbages in his garden. That was a man who truly loved cabbages.

Though what they called cabbages were most likely what we would call kale as head cabbages didn't exist back then. The closest they had was something resembling Savoy cabbage, but in a loose form.

It's a joke.  Actually, the first batch I made personally was too hot, barely edible.  Second batch was much better.  But if you're not used to eating hot food, as the Fark saying goes, you'll know it when "The oil hits the anus".

Ironically, my adopted son who is ethnically half-Korean won't go near the stuff.  I love it though, discovered it when I was stationed in Hawaii in the Army over 30 years ago.  Started making my own after I had to go on a low sodium diet.  I use water instead of fish sauce, which tends to be really salty.  Tastes almost the same, and it's acceptable for my vegan friends to eat.

My favorite use is to put it on burgers.
