As a man, or at least as a sociopath, I do not have feelings and think instead. The source of the title quote is contested, but I pulled it from somebody at IGX.


I'm hovering at around 10kg below the ceiling of my current weight class and lifting progress is slowing. It may be time for a blitz. Crap, I'm supposed to be squatting 360#x3x5 today. I might cry afterward. And, all things considered, I might fit better in the 110s.

Fark, on this graph that just got sent out, one element is like two pixels out of alignment. Nobody actually looks at this stuff, but it annoys me.

I am helping somebody move a piano on Sunday. 70's big!

I have quite a bit of oblom about finishing my maths homework. I should do it and do it well, though. It's mostly plugging and chugging at this point. Not pleasant or tricky.

I'm pretty much down with ana's thing. Change a few things, of course, and also that I'm Orthodox rather than one of those other things.

I should eat more eggs. I tout their benefits and enjoy them, but I don't get around to eating them because preparing them can be a hassle. Four eggs per day would be a wonderful addition to most diets. QUESTION: eggs fried in butter or eggs fried in bacon grease? It is a tough choice.

More bacon... by ana (4.00 / 1) #1 Tue May 04, 2010 at 03:06:17 PM EST
...is better than less bacon. It is the way of things.

And thanks for the link and the kind words.

Scrambled in butter by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #2 Tue May 04, 2010 at 03:48:00 PM EST
Fried in bacon grease. The consistency is important in scrambled.

Scrambled in real butter (no spread shite) and fried in olive oil.

"in real butter" by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #16 Wed May 05, 2010 at 08:14:08 AM EST
Well, that should go without saying.

Olive oil is yummy. But you have to cook at low heat or you lose the flavor.

Yes by ucblockhead (2.00 / 0) #21 Wed May 05, 2010 at 02:01:48 PM EST
And the rule is that if you wonder if you put in enough butter, you didn't put in enough butter.

Lately I've been having scrambled eggs with asparagus mixed in.  I love this time of year...

My favorite way to make eggs: by toxicfur (2.00 / 0) #3 Tue May 04, 2010 at 04:01:00 PM EST
Cut a hole in a slice of white bread. Melt butter in skillet and dredge one side of the bread in butter and flip it over. Crack the egg in the hole, and fry until the bread is toasted on one side, then flip. The yolk should, of course, still be runny, and the fried, buttered bread is perfect to soak it up. Mmmm, butter.

you get to share your love of eggs with everyone around you.

you've not seen me eat eggs. by dev trash (2.00 / 0) #10 Tue May 04, 2010 at 09:21:08 PM EST
They're in the mouth and digested before anyone would have a hint of egg odor.

I do agree with this. by gzt (4.00 / 1) #14 Wed May 05, 2010 at 07:09:38 AM EST
I'm too lazy to hard boil sometimes. And if you want to do it well, you have to be careful about timing.

Timing, schmiming by lm (2.00 / 0) #15 Wed May 05, 2010 at 07:52:44 AM EST
Bring eggs in water to a boil. Turn off heat. Cover. Come back after the water is cooled. Eggs are done.

Another quick alternative is an Egg McMuffin from McDonalds.

I am dubious by ucblockhead (2.00 / 0) #24 Wed May 05, 2010 at 04:20:05 PM EST
I know that the egg slices from their salads start as a long tube of "egg".  I wonder if the egg macmuffin egg starts as "egg product" that's cut with stuff.

According to McD's by lm (2.00 / 0) #26 Wed May 05, 2010 at 04:43:53 PM EST
At McDonald’s, we only use fresh USDA Grade A shell eggs for breakfast sandwiches, or pure liquid eggs from Lucerne® or Egg Beaters® for scrambled or folded eggs.

I notice that eggs on salad are not mentioned.

Perfection by ucblockhead (2.00 / 0) #25 Wed May 05, 2010 at 04:22:29 PM EST
I've found that they come out best when you make sure it's a rolling boil and then drain them and throw them in the fridge at 20 minutes.  The yolk comes out best that way.

Your method works fine, though the yolks will be a little overdone.

an egg-perfect then. Put it in with the eggs, and when the colour's changed, your eggs are done.

The question is one of scientific experimentation, then. Which level of doneness on the egg thingy corresponds to how we want the eggs cooked.
