Detergent?

Like dish soap?



Just water worked pretty good. Perhaps it was the only way your mother could get you to bathe?

Where did you pick up that cooking tip?

Um... I lived in Japan for 6 years. You pick up on things, when using fresh ingredients. Unlike Uncle Ben's rice, real rice requires preparation.


So real rice doesn't come in a 10kilo bag with Asian writing on it?

I have always just threw it in a pot and cooked it.

In Japan it came in many forms. My favorite was the bulk vending machine type. Bring a 3 gallon bucket insert 500 yen (US$4.75) and it fills.

[culinary geek moment]

To prepare white long or short grain rice, the best method is to rinse the crap out of it until the water is no longer a milky color. Using either a colander or placing the rice in a large pot you rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse, and rinse. When that milky color is gone, you want to soak the rice under about a nuckle of water for 12 hours.

I steam my rice on a bamboo steamer and the cheesecloth comes in handy throughout the entire process. First, it keeps the rice contained and managable while rinsing; I've mastered rinsing in a colander. Then you let it soak for about 12 hours in a bowl; again the cheesecloth keeps everything together. And finally, when steaming the rice, the cheesecloth keeps everything together and from falling through the slats in the steamer. My rice comes out super sticky and fluffy. By pre-soaking the rice, also, the cooking time is down to about 5 minutes.

Cooking it this way requires some planning and preperation but the quality is much better, and you can get rice cheaper when it's uncooked. For flavor, rice takes on the flavor of whatever you put in it. It's the ultimate starch.

[/culinary geekery]

Cooking is a passionate hobby of mine, can you tell? I like eating good food, and if I can get supurb taste cheaply I'll do it.

I dunno. My parents could only afford that cheap black plastic you use for painting projects. We only used a hose and more often than not the plastic - being black - was super hot regardless of how much water we put on it. It was good until about the 5th or 6th slide when it would tear and we'd have a rock go through our chest - living in the desert isn't really conducive for lawns. We had one, but it was thin and brown most of the time.

My pool involved a 1/4 mile walk to a pond. This pond had multiple vehicles - cars, jeeps, motorcycles, 4-wheelers, and a school bus - in it. I didn't swim much there. No one in my subdivision of 250 houses had a pool. If you could call it a pool, it was more than likely a horse trough, or one of those 10" deep plastic thingys.

I'd rather just cook it for 20 min or whatever it takes than have to plan 12 hours in advance.

I might try rinsing it though. Ours always wants to come out overly sticky.

I thought rinsing it took away any nutritional value it had?

Cooking is not a very passionate thing of mine. After 12 hours of soaking in my belly I can turn a rice into a big pile of brown poo in less than a minute. I just can't get passionate about something like that.

I'd much rather stick to being passionate about conquering meaningless rocks.Crazy

We had a lake pretty close to our house. It kind sucked for swimming though. It wasn't very deep. And full of weeds. It was pretty good for fishing though. And leeches.

The psycho bitch decided she did not want to be in the hospital anymore. The hospital staff decided that she was staying. And I didn't exactly have time to bust out the camera phone.

I never knew that the hospital could decline a persons right to decline health care. Wouldn't that, in a sense, be hurting a person by doing so?

Unless a person is STATE admitted, that person is allowed to leave under their own free will.


At least this has been the impression that I have always had about health care.
A police officer can hospitalize someone for 24 hours. An MD can do it for 72 hrs, and then they have to go to an oversight commitee
I'd really like to expand on this topic, but I just spent the last 2 hours talking health care in class and don't feel like doing it on my own time - let alone time I paid for.

Seems a bit ludicrous to me, regardless.
Yeah I disagree with 98% of the us healthcare system. The 2% is the amount related to patient care.... And it's all about the paycheck.
So you think Canada is better?


You are such an idealist.

spent my fair share of time in those as a kid. It was my job to make sure they were always full, so I made sure to enjoy my work from time to time.

'course, there was always the pool I'd make myself when I dammed up the creek flowing through the front 40. No diving allowed, and that water was COLD!

I thought you guys were boys?!?!?! When I was a boy I tried a lot of things, including putting detergent on my plastic slide.... and if results were favorable, like in this case, I kept doing it until my mother decided the lawn was clean enough... it was definitely a pre-emptive strike on the grass stains though.... and the biggest bonus of all.... BUBBLES!!! Lots of them!! You guys missed out!

Yeah, we also had a nearby dam with leaches.... we'd just go there, take the leaches out, just by immersing a leg or two and bring them back for the slip'n'slide... bring all the action home, so to speak.

I figured as much. Is this true Art? Do your people really cook rice in cheesecloth?
If by 'your people' you mean Americans, no.


No, I meant his people. Japanese, not the other half of his people, Americans.

Well fuck....

Here we thought you were actually longing by a real pool when you were all laid up. Like some sort of rich kid.
Not quite... There were many afternoons of my broken ass floating in the pool with a six pack. But it is an above ground pool.

Yeah, I'm picking up on that.

All that time wasted being jealous of you.Crazy

Guess I'll just have to be happy with being jealous of L'Habitant's rich kids pool.
When I was a kid, living in a middle class neighbourhood, there were only 2 families with pools. I remember having to be really nice to those kids to get an invite into their pool. So, I decided that when I had kids, as soon as the bank would give me money, they were getting a pool. I didn't want them to have to grovel like I did just to keep cool.

We have a pool.
We aren't rich.
You can all come swimming.
Party at Wanders house. Can you grill us some steaks too?
I think your house would be closer for most.
for most? Only for you and Beccs.
