    Default Ionathus's Random Banter #249 -- Directionless Rambling Is Now Mandatory

    Welcome to the new Random Banter Thread! I have the sneaking suspicion several other posters were saving their eligibility for the big Two-Five-Oh but I have no such ambitions.

    This is where we talk about whatever meandering thought pops into our heads, regardless of what the prior conversation was. It's kind of like the entire rest of the forum, only we're being honest about it here.

    Spoiler: The Rules
    Show

    1. Spam. For RB, one-word posts are generally considered spam. Likewise, posts that are nothing but *actions like this* are also be considered spam. Remember that the quality of the post's content is much better than the speed of your response.
    2. This isn't the Play by Post or Town forum, nor is it the Silly Message Board Games or Structured Games forum. Please avoid continuous roleplay or mock battles and fights such as the "competition for control of the universe".
    3. If it's already a thread, don't bring it to RB. RB has such a huge range of subject matter even restricted to the little snippets that probably don't warrant their thread, it doesn't need legitimate thread topics cluttering it up as well. The exception to this is to bring something off-topic from one thread, but on-topic for RB and the subject doesn't warrant a thread of its own.
    4. Don't advertise other threads in RB. Just because these new threads move at speeds more appropriate to a message board than an IM session doesn't mean you need to come over to RB and browbeat people into posting in your latest brainchild.
    5. Please don't post single-line posts alerting us to your current status—as in "I'm back." This is Random Banter, not "How to stalk Random GitP forum members."
    6. Don't poke, kick or bump the thread. It will move at whatever pace it wants to. Also, please refrain from Captain Obvious comments akin to "My, the thread is fast today."
    7. Random Banter can only be as good, or as entertaining, as you make it. Demands to be entertained will fall on deaf ears unless you can add something more meaningful to the conversation.
    8. As this is a public forum, where the current topic is nicely recorded for you, and not a conversation where you could have missed the beginning, please refrain from asking something to the effect of "What's the topic?". Please take the time to read up a bit first.
    9. Thread Creator must include the words "Random" and "Banter" as well as the thread #. Try to be concise as well.
    10. Every post should contain two visible, legible complete sentences, Subject and Predicate. C'mon, make your old English teachers proud.
    11. Remember, Random Banter is not your IM client. If you want to have a back and forth discussion with just one person, look in their contact information for IM details.
    12. Whenever a new thread is created, all "first post," "first-page," and all posts of that nature will be deleted by the administrators. Please avoid doing this, as it is frustrating for them to deal with one-lined posts like this.
    13. Double-posting is not your friend. We have edit buttons for a reason.
    14. Once you have made a Random Banter thread, you must wait for 20 threads before making another one.
    15. If you can avoid dibs calling on making the next thread, that will avoid people needing to wait if the thread hits 50 pages while the dibs-caller is asleep.

    I love it! As a kid I always thought gift cards were "cheating" or boring, but my sister-in-law made a good point recently that stuck with me: she loves getting gift cards to a place she loves, because she's required to shop at a place she loves now. If she got cash, she'd feel guilty if she didn't put it towards household or family expenses. But oh no, now she has to spend 50 bucks on her favorite yarn (one whole strand of it, these prices amirite :P)

    100% in favor. Make the forum archaeologists search in vain for decades for the Random Banter Thread version of the elusive Pig #3.

    Every day is a new horror!

    Today's horror: Salmon grilled cheese sandwich. Also far more blood than should be expected at this point in my recovery process but mostly the former.

    ...if you don't want the sandwich can I have it?

    Also keep an eye on the blood, if it continues to be too much maybe a doctor can put some of it back.

    Agreed. I'm not usually the squeamish type about stuff like that (I reserve my squeamishness mostly for spoiled food), but I found my dad's story about being awake when they operated something at the back of one of his eyeballs quite disturbing. Though he didn't seem that bothered by it, so I suppose the drugs did their job, at least.

    Not sure what to think about salmon grilled cheese. It sounds like one of those combinations of two good things that end up bad when combined, but I've been wrong about such things before.

    I'm okay, just slightly injured myself.

    EDIT: Yes the salmon grilled cheese was one of the worst things I've ever put in my mouth ever.

    Fish and cheese together? It can be done, sure, but you'd better damned well know what you're doing. Sounds like dad's partner doesn't.

    First time my wife ever made a tuna melt, it blew my mind. I'd never had one before and genuinely loved it.

    Second time she made it, it was with cheddar instead of Swiss as before. I loathed the flavor combination and was thoroughly confused. I asked her why she'd done cheddar this time and she was baffled by the question. "What do you mean, this time?"

    Turns out, she'd used Swiss the first time because we were out of cheddar. If she'd made it "the usual" way that first time, I never would've touched a Swiss tuna melt again.

    Tuna melts are fine in my limited experience, but salmon aint tuna!

    I'm pretty sure that salmon and cheese was a flavor of off-brand cat food we got once.

    Has anyone ever put butter in coffee? Because the other day I had an interesting conversation with one of the Starbucks baristas near my house about it. If you recall my mentioning about the olive oil in coffee at the last Random Banter Thread.

    The nearest I've heard is that one FFVII character who puts it in tea, and I think he's meant to be kind of a weirdo.

    Would butter even mix like milk? I'd have thought it would emulsify, like the little blobs of fat you get if you add cream.

    Butter is way better than olive oil in coffee, but still not my fave. It does mix but in terms of flavor it's basically nonexistent. You're better off sticking with full fat cream for the extra flavor kick and oiliness, or just plain 100% milk if you DON'T want said oiliness.

    Also if you add cream and/or sugar first and then pour the coffee over it you don't get the blobs.

    Ah, this is interesting. There's an ongoing debate (stretched out over the decades) in the UK over if you add milk or tea to the cup first (naturally some styles of tea call for brewing within the mug, making the point moot), with arguments ranging from how it affects the resulting drink, to the risk of shattering fine china.

    BH, everybody knows that the correct way is to heat the milk and use that to brew the tea!

    I don't even drink this crazy concoction but obviously it's tea first, then milk. You always add acid to water, never the reverse. This is basic chemistry!

    I know some people hate the idea but it's never bothered me -- what is butter, if not cream that's gotten itself all worked up?

    I've had it a few times from relatives who swore by it at the time (fad thing, didn't last for them). It was okay -- interesting mouthfeel, and I can see how some people would like it. At the time, they insisted on its health benefits but I'm convinced that's a meaningless distinction and the only reason to do it is for the taste/experience.

    I do love the name. "Bulletproof coffee." Helluva fad name, I gotta give them credit.

    I won't weigh in on its effects on brewing, but I can definitely sympathize with the fear of a shatter-worthy temperature fluctuation. Ever since I broke a plate microwaving a frozen donut as a kid, I've felt hyperaware of the temperature in every glass or ceramics container I use in the kitchen.

    Listen, Peelee, I know it's our patriotic duty to dunk on tea (or, preferably, dunk tea in the harbor), but you gotta lay off the "hot leaf juice" schtick.

    The Brits, I think we can handle -- it's the Dragon of the West I'm worried about.

    Black tea is significantly more acidic than milk, and so by Peelee's logic should be added afterwards. Milk and tea are both mostly water.
