    Wednesday, September 26: What is your favorite cooked vegetable? Do you have a recipe that you enjoy more than others?

    Broccoli! Steamed all by itself or with cheese or with shrimp mayonnaise.

    Tuesday, September 25: Do you enjoy fall themed activities like corn mazes, hay rides, corn cob shooting, etc.? If so, do you have a favorite memory of an activity?

    We've got one of the world's greatest corn mazes near where I live. Over 8 acres of corn featuring games, trivia, bridges, and a snack bar in the middle. You can explore it for weeks collecting stamps from all of the markers inside it. Plus it has a gate system that allows emergency egress and subtly changes the shape of the maze from day to day, so it's never the same maze twice.

     

    I also enjoy apple picking, pumpkin pie, and hot apple cider.

    Corn cob what now?

    Sounds like a very dangerous version of cornholing to me.

    Sunday, September 23: What is the dumbest solution to a problem you've had, that actually worked?

    I've successfully solved too many problems by just ignoring them and acting dumb when people ask about them.

    Thursday, Sept 20: What in the world is “Ashura”; does anyone know++ or are you observing it ?

    No clue. Apparently it's not important enough in the Muslin Calendar for the Cairo office to have mentioned it.

    What's the most epic way you've seen someone quit or be fired?

    I've heard of people who were so epically unqualified, they were in fact unhired. Essentially the company threatened to sue if the person ever intimated they had ever worked there.

    In Soviet Russia, a man named Rudolph and his wife Katarina were eating dinner. Katarina looked out the window and said, "Looks like it's beginning to snow, dear." Rudolph replied, "No, it looks like rain to me." Katarina sighed and told him, "Dear, it's clearly snow!" Rudolph stood up and said, "Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!"

     

    From a 'big book of jokes' I had as a kid in the 70s. Don't know why that one particular joke always stuck with me.

    Not as funny as the Reverse Yakov Smirnoff:
    In Capitalist America, Bank Robs You!

    If you had an infinite budget to build a fort, what would you build?

    A Victorian Mansion with porches on three sides, the fourth designed to look more like a castle for siege battles. It will include all the pre-20th Century energy efficiency features that were abandoned when air conditioning was invented as well as solar panels. The field will be hardy grasses that require little to no maintenance in this climate. It will be on a lake.

    Tell the whole story- a lot of us thought the KS Sophie was great, but then they said "Well, you can swap her for a Nethermaul, and nearly everyone ditched Sophie.

     

    Reaper isn't Anti-exclusives- but they are Anti-waste (so they won't have a plastic mold made that they're not intending to use a bunch).

    Also KS1 Sophie was metal.

    What is the funniest actual name you've heard of someone having?

    Dick Butkus.

     

    Honorable mention: I have a friend named Chris Smith (say "Chrismith" and you'll know why it's awful). You might think his parents didn't think this through, since Chris is short for Christopher. His middle name is Noel.

    Speaking of Asian characters, Crazy Rich Asians was an enjoyable way to spent 2 hours! Very little came as a surprise, but it was very well done, and the character actors were all FANTASTIC!  

    Yes, I saw it yesterday and loved it. I've been a big fan of Constance Wu from her work on Fresh off the Boat. Nice to see her play a different character but keep some of the wit. "Changi [Airport] has a butterfly garden and a movie theater! All Laguardia has is Salmonella and despair."

    Hoping for some neat reapercon pictures here...

    I took a photo of a drinks menu that had a tasty looking drink named after my wife.

    Monday, September 3: If you were cooking the last BBQ you could ever have, what would you have?

    Beef Brisket, Carolina-style so my wife could eat it with me. It would probably be terrible since I've never made BBQ.

    There are arguments for putting it away somewhere, to be sure. And there are arguments to keeping all the butter that isn't the "active" stick in the fridge (in fact, this makes the most sense), but there are no arguments I know of that would make me store my active, in-use stick in the fridge. Maybe if the AC went out, I guess.

     

    I can see people thinking it's easier to store it in the fridge if they have pest problems, but I would find a different solution, probably. Buy a butter crock with a good heavy lid, or buy a bread box and keep the butter dish in there maybe. But I would not give up room temperature butter unless forced to, anything is better than trying to use cold butter, or having to foresee needing butter in a couple minutes, or trying to time softening butter in the microwave without liquefying it.

    Agreed. Only monsters keep their spreading butter in the fridge. When the tub of Kerrygold starts to run low, we remove the seal from the next one and put it in the cupboard under the active one so we never have to deal with trying to spread cold butter on hot toast.

     

    We do have sticks of unsalted butter we use for cooking that stay in the fridge and come out 1/4 TBSP at a time.
