And while I've been preoccupied with this, SCOTUS basically dismantled Roe v Wade.

They'll be after the Gays next.

Didn't take very fucking long.

Unlike the dems, the GOP understands momentum.

With all the hateful shit, I'm moving away from Chicago as soon as my therapy and ADHD diagnosis/medication hit a point I feel confident in. It's not that Chicago is bad, it's that Chicago doesn't have enough trans density.

The PNW has some Issues with the White Queers (you know the fucking type) and a saturation of queer abusers, not to mention all the fucking neo-Nazis, but there's enough queer people that I would actually feel safe. If something Bad happened I'd feel like there'd be people around who would step the fuck up. And I wouldn't be minimum 150 miles from everyone I love in the process, or surrounded by young assimilationist queers (Chicago has SO MUCH assimilationist bullshit in its queer community it makes me sick) if I find a cluster of queer people at all.

So.  Ramen CAN in fact explode and now I have some light flash burns and I'm missing my left front tooth.

Yeah, happened to me back in about November. I got lucky and am unscathed. I treat ramen with due respect these days. Was it the semi-fancy Nongshim stuff that got you, too?

FTR, I'm not riffing or joking, I'm glad you're mostly okay because I have genuinely seen this happen firsthand (at a fair distance).

Naw, I'm fine with it.

I mean, okay, I tried something new and it WORKED but then it exploded.  This is better than when I cut off a chunk of my ear prepping burgers, because I was at least successful.

Well, after a fashion.  I have no idea where the ramen wound up.

If it's like what happened with my ramen, it turned to dust and smoke. There was a hole in the porcelain bowl.

Well, the roots have to come out.

Right now I put the pain, if measured from 1 to 10, at King Kong.

What did you try?

I figured you could sparge noodles.

Put it in a Pyrex sphere with water and no remaining air space, superheat the sphere with ether, and the water can't boil because of the pressure, so it just migrates into the ramen.  It worked, too.  15 second ramen.

Then the Pyrex went bang at about 15 atmospheres of pressure, squashed my face shield up against my googles, causing me to swallow most of my left front tooth.  Also some mild flash burns & concert ears.

I call it a partial success.  It would have been a complete success if I knew where the ramen wound up.  Not in my yard, anyway.

I am reasonably sure that the chlorine in the water came unglued into O2, adding vapor, which could expand and you'd only need the Pyrex to have uneven pressure for a fraction of a second.

Chlorine? You mean it might have been OK with spring water or distilled water?
Theoretically. Please don't try it. Hire a magat or somebody else who doesn't matter.

That is, frankly, entirely awesome.

Are you going to try again, maybe with a sturdier pressure vessel?

Is it possible that outgassing from the ramen is part of the problem?  I'm not sure if that term applies to non-vacuum environments, but I'd think the ramen might have some air dissolved or trapped in it, and of course the ramen itself has dozens of little nucleation points.

No, this is the sort of thing I feel you should only try once.

Quite honestly I cannot tel if this is fiction or whether you really did all this.

I would call that alone a true win.
