500 g. of ground lean pork
3 tbsps. of finely minced garlic
1 onion, finely chopped
2 tbsps. of tomato paste
2 tbsps. of rice vinegar
2 tbsps. of soy paste Note:(Miso)
1 tsp. of salt
1 tsp. of pepper
4 tbsps. of dark brown sugar
1 tbsp. of fine unsweetened bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
1 c. of cooking oil
12-15 pcs. of kitchen wax paper, 6″ x 6″ in size

- Mix together all the ingredients except the cooking oil and the wax paper. (NOTE: You get a really nice uniform sausagey texture by employing a potato-masher. If you're using a pack of fatty ass pork from the Supermarket like what I used, do this. If you're using halfway decent pork from a butcher, don't. In the latter case you'll gain from the texture, in the former, shit's already been high pressure hosed off the bones anyway, so you're just completing the process)

 Divide into 12 to 15 portions, depending on the size you prefer. Form each portion into a log about 1″ to 1-1/3″ thick. Place on a piece of wax paper and roll firmly and as tightly as you can. Repeat for the remaining portions. Stack on a covered container and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Heat the cooking oil in a wide skillet or wok until it starts to smoke. Fry the longganisa in hot oil until browned. Drain on paper towels. Serve with fried eggs and garlic fried rice.

To make the garlic fried rice :

Drain the oil from the skillet or wok where the longganisa has been cooked until only about 2 tablespoonfuls remain. Gently fry about a tablespoonful of minced garlic in the oil until light brown in color. Add about 5 cups of cold cooked rice (mashed to separate the grains). Season with salt and steak sauce. Cook, tossing, until the rice is heated through.

(NOTE: Brits, Steak sauce is pretty much HP sauce.)

My friend stole my camera and I had to use my laptop's inbuilt camera. This is what I would assume it would look like if you had cataracts.

And this is what it looks like on the website.

Shit's delicious. Err on the side of burning with this.

Principia Discussion / The Brights and Mundanity

Quote from: Wikipedia
The Brights movement is a social movement that aims to promote public understanding and acknowledgment of the naturalistic worldview, including equal civil rights and acceptance for people who hold a naturalistic worldview. It was co-founded by Paul Geisert and Mynga Futrell in 2003. The movement aims to create an Internet constituency that will pursue the following aims:
Promote public understanding and acknowledgment of the naturalistic worldview, which is free of supernatural and mystical elements.
Gain public recognition that persons who hold such a worldview can bring principled actions to bear on matters of civic importance.
Educate society toward accepting the full and equitable civic participation of all such people.

Dawkins' analogy in the aforementioned Guardian article is instructive, comparing the coining of bright to the "triumph of consciousness-raising" from the term gay:
Gay is succinct, uplifting, positive: an "up" word, where homosexual is a down word, and queer, faggot and pooftah are insults. Those of us who subscribe to no religion; those of us whose view of the universe is natural rather than supernatural; those of us who rejoice in the real and scorn the false comfort of the unreal, we need a word of our own, a word like "gay". ... Like gay, it should be a noun hijacked from an adjective, with its original meaning changed but not too much. Like gay, it should be catchy: a potentially prolific meme. Like gay, it should be positive, warm, cheerful, bright.

The movement has been criticised by some (both religious and non-religious) who have objected to the adoption of the title "bright" because they believe it suggests that the individuals with a naturalistic worldview are more intelligent ("brighter") than the religious.

In subcultural and fictional uses, a mundane is a person who does not belong to a particular group, according to the members of that group; the implication is that such persons, lacking imagination, are concerned solely with the mundane: the quotidian and ordinary.[1] In science fiction fandom and related fandoms the term is used to refer, sometimes deprecatingly, to non-fans; this use of the term antedates 1955.[2]

In Asperger's Syndrome internet and verbal communication pop culture to show others, Aspies, use the term in the context derived from the term in Babylon 5 as a term for Psi Corps Telepath and is used derogatory to infer dullness of persons NOT with Autism or within the Autistic Spectrum other then Aspies; persons without a diagnosis are generally called Neurotypical.

In 'The Enemies of Reason' Richard Dawkins says that "The word 'mundane' has come to mean boring and dull, and it really shouldn't. It should mean the opposite because it comes from the latin 'mundus', meaning the world, and the world is anything but dull...."

In sanguinarian circles the word "mundane" means "non sanguinarian", although some consider it derogatory.

"the Mundanes" should be taken up by the dudes in Skepto-Atheisto-Naturalist circles who value humility. It's a negative adjective, a straight insult, and so apt for "reclamation of stereotypes" purposes, like "Queer" too. It sounds explicitly non-new-agey. "Mundane", "Straightforward". Get it? Mundane.

The number of fake £1 coins in circulation now stands at more than 30 million, according to the Royal Mint. How do you know if you've been given one?
That £1 coin in your pocket could be worthless.
The number of fake pound coins in circulation has doubled in the past five years and one in every 50 is now counterfeit.

Quote from: Ayn Rand
To form a concept, one mentally isolates a group of concretes (of distinct perceptual units), on the basis of observed similarities which distinguish them from all other known concretes (similarity is 'the relationship between two or more existents which possess the same characteristic(s), but in different measure or degree'); then, by a process of omitting the particular measurements of these concretes, one integrates them into a single new mental unit: the concept, which subsumes all concretes of this kind (a potentially unlimited number). The integration is completed and retained by the selection of a perceptual symbol (a word) to designate it. 'A concept is a mental integration of two or more units possessing the same distinguishing characteristic(s), with their particular measurements omitted.'

Quote from: Ayn Rand
"[T]he term 'measurements omitted' does not mean, in this context, that measurements are regarded as non-existent; it means that measurements exist, but are not specified. That measurements must exist is an essential part of the process. The principle is: the relevant measurements must exist in some quantity, but may exist in any quantity."

A person's knowledge of the difference between counterfeit and genuine pound coins is knowledge of pound coin concretes. (premise)

For most practical purposes (purchasing) a counterfeit pound coin is as good as a real one, because nobody bothers to check.

.'. minting origin is a nonessential property of pound coins, pound coins are pound coins qua pound coins (they are passed as currency) without being "genuine".

Until we know a coin is counterfeit, in which case it ceases to be legal tender because... validity is suddenly an absolute by virtue of being discovered? So it grows a concrete?

Fuck you, Ayn.
