Yeah, pretty fuckin' much. Though I've managed to so far resist all attempts to force me to use egregious amounts of truffles. And I will put my newfangled deviled eggs up against anyone's, at least until bottarga becomes the new truffles.

Which is to say, this shit isn't worth the money and I'm starting to realize that I REALLY don't give two shits for the prestige or "big fish in a tiny pond"-level "celebrity". I very well might be the 3rd best chef in Maine (Masa Miyake is like a GOD and I've got a ways to go before I consider myself even with Dana Street - sorry Melissa Kelley fans, she's not even the best chef in Rockland), but I literally could not give less of a fuck. I think I've reached that point that all chefs reach where it's time to get a book deal, resign yourself to being a broken down husk of a man by 45 who is going to die early, or GTFO and don't look back.

And I don't see a book deal coming down the pipes anytime soon.

Garlic scapes (the green shoots) are milder than the bulbs, but the owner decided for me and it's going to be the halibut.

Personally, I'm starting to lean towards option C: ECH throws a complete wobbler in front of a packed restaurant, says "fuck all this bullshit", puts ECHGF and the dogs in the SUV, and heads for Virginia Beach or somewhere further south.

So I got a big box of sea beans in and I'm torn between two dishes on how I want to use them this weekend. So, discriminating culinarians of PD, what say you?

No way, Delcon is my favorite current PD troll.


No Harassment of members or real life threats (This ban has been immediate following severity in the past)

It's rethorical at this point, but i felt that the racist and homophobic remarks counted as harrassment towards specific members, that's why I wanted a ban on him.

And you can't tell me it's a dick move on my part because im doing the white knight "person in power helps powerless minority" because I'm a minority myself and I was simply trying to express solidarity.

That's nice and all, but I don't think there was any powerlessness involved.

And the color of your skin has nothing to do with whether or not you were white-knighting.

I have to admit, I'm curious as to whether people would have had the same responses had PL directed some dumb made-up racial or homophobic slur against a male member of this forum.

That's a lie, I'm not actually curious. I've seen it happen before and nobody gets anywhere near that worked up.

Nigel, thanks for the add, but I was able to tolerate The Discordian Society on my feed for about 30 seconds before quitting.   :lulz:

You're a stronger man than I am.

About 15 seconds stronger. :lulz:

Actually, I was just talking about that crap he said in the "PL was trying to be edgily racist" thread. I don't know the first thing about his facebook page.

I just wanted to pop in here to point out that Gorightly seems to actually be just another two-bit asshole and fuck giving that guy money for some shit he didn't even write.

I don't recall name calling or racism being grounds for banning, but maybe I missed something.

However, having said that, the big thing I took away from this thread is that Gorightly is a complete fuckwit, and I'm glad I hadn't already spent money on his book.

Also this. He was about the only one of the "old school" discordians that I didn't find completely odious, now I'm beginning to think that was just an oversight on my part because seriously, WTF was that shit all about?

My two cents, for what they're worth. He should have been banned with calling Nigel a negress. He has now also called Gogira a queer.

PD has always had a pretty narrow band of bannable offenses. If the admins discuss it and decide that they want to amend the rules to make puerile name-calling a bannable offense, that's up to them, but personally I feel like it's simpler to avoid expanding the list of rules and just use our already-available individual powers of not suffering a fool.

This, and I'm more than a little saddened that I had to explain this concept to the very people that instilled it in me in the first place.

Well, at least it's the best place in Texas.

Which is sort of like being the fittest kid at fat camp, but still.

And before anyone says some shit like "but what about Austin?" allow me to point out that FUCK Austin.

Either way, a whole lot of PDX-heads woh otherwise hate sports sure do love them some soccer.

I've always said that Portland is the most European American city (with no personal experience of Europe AT ALL so I'm totally qualified to make such a statement) and that's one of my pieces of evidence. Also transit, bicycles, worthwhile beer, and a curious predilection for self-deprecation.

I should be free sometime in November.

(It's funny because it's true!)

Dude, they're having the centennial Copa America in the US next year, with the US and a few other CONCACAF teams added to the tournament for the special event. That means that next year you might have a chance to see Neymar or Messi or James Rodriquez work their magic live and in person. I'm pretty stoked about it. I can't imagine they won't have at least a couple of matches in Seattle so it seems like a perfect time to go back for a visit.
