The snarky side of me said, "at least we won't have to see any more posts about the color of that damn dress."

That dress is a sacred relic

Reposted from something I wrote on another thread

I just remembered a really weird type of sandwich that they used to sell at a food truck at college. I forget the name (of the sandwich. The truck was called Pyramid Pizza) and I've never tried to put one together myself but it seems rather elementary...

You'll need:

2 hotdogs
a hoagie/hero/grinder/sub roll
french fries
Ketchup
Cheese whiz
Honey mustard

Directions:
1.) Heat up hotdogs and fries
2.) Lay hotdogs end to end in hoagie/sub/grinder roll
3.) add ketchup, mustard, and cheese-whiz
4.) jam fries into roll above hotdogs
5.) garnish with more ketchup, mustard, and spray cheese

This was one of the less weird sandwiches that they sold.

Why not treat it *as* psychology? That's something that to my knowledge hasn't been done in fiction really. Additionally, it makes it more or less useless in most of the situations where it would be a deus ex machina, but quite absurdly useful in certain other places where you might need it (taking the place of psychological warfare and in some cases psychoanalysis).


Isn't that pretty much the majority of what the Lancre Witches do on Discworld?


"Headology"

Yeah, but they also have real magic powers. They're just afraid to use them because using them excessively tends to endanger the user and/or drive tem insane.


EDIT:
As for the OP, that was kind of the plot of Wicked, wasn't it. "Glinda the Good" is a bitch, and the "Wonderful Wizard" is a tyrannical fascist.

EDIT:
Also Grendel by John Gardner.

A story where it is deliberately unclear whether it passes the Bechdel test because the female characters are of ambiguous sexuality and their unseen significant otners all have androgynous names.

-The tribulations of an Italian or Italian-American vampire living in a garlic-heavy neighborhood.

EDIT:

-A parody of Disney/Pixar's Planes about a flying  saucer that vehemently insists that it is a weather balloon

This isn't a recipe per se, but when making grilled cheese, try using Swiss or Munster cheese instead of American cheese. My experience has been that it tastes a lot better.

Anything tastes better than American cheese.

Even Kraft imitation American cheese?

I think that if you re-examine your misconception, you will find that that is not "imitation" American cheese.


No, regular american cheese contains some non-zero percentage of mild cheddar, whereas Kraft Singles don't contain any cheese at all. I believe they're made of a mixture of milk byproducts and petroleum byproducts.


EDIT:
but in all seriousness, iirc Kraft doesn't seem to use rennet, making its statis as chesse questionable. Whereas regular american cheese, iirc, is just ordimary mild cheddar plus an assload of additives.

But yeah. That's an awesome story.

That sounds like college.   :lulz:

That depends on if you have the meal plan or not

When I was in college my parents sprung for the expensive meal plan and so for me college was  remembering  at the end of the semester that I still had a bunch credits left over that wouldn't roll over to the next semester and blowing them all on five pounds of candy and so many energy drinks that they're still taking up space in my fridge nine years later.

EDIT:
And that's why I have health problems today and sometimes get winded walking up one flight of stairs

Q.) What do you call an unimpressive Greek philosopher?
A.) Mediocrates

The reason I hate 50 shades of gray isn't that it's soccer-mom bait, but that now everyone on the internet has to mention that they are a dom or a sub or whatever.  It's boring.  Shut up.

...plus, if they're gonna make a movie that goes there they should do it properly. Make an adaptation of Venus im Pelz, or finally do an adaptation of The 120 Days of Sodom that isn't just the frame story.

TED Talk Sound Bite or North Korean political slogan?

The slogans all sound like they were procedurally generated by a computer.

As an aside, I always thought that meatloaf was, like, the pinnacle of American food.  It is, after all, just a bunch of beef shoved together with some ketchup on top and some chopped veggies if you're feeling adventurous.

My mother always added bacon

Those last two drinks sound really good. I'll have to try them.
