  1. Vince Gilligan-- I only found out recently that he was an early writer of "X Files.," He wrote 30 episodes. A very talented writer. BTW, what do you think about the retro cheesy graphics on the BCS opening credits? Humorous. Sent from my SM-T330NU using Tapatalk
  2. Quote What is happening?! I've never laughed so hard at reviews before. But, to be serious, these knives are great. 14 murders in, and they're still sharp enough to roughly cut through a beer can. Thanks! End My favorite. Sent from my SM-T330NU using Tapatalk
  3. There's nothing wrong with the balanced approach as one person's choice. But, my observations tell me that what really happens is more like "a little heroin for fun" and then BAM! they are off the wagon. Then, there is the problem of weaning one's self off all that overly spiced, overly flavored, overly prepared food. Compared to kale and apples and beans it becomes a rather persistent temptation. Since that food has very little nutritional utility (too much bad and too little good), there's no reason to keep doing it. I observe a lot of people who are obese, and I listen to what they say, and watch what they do. In general, they are giving in to temptations often enough that they can never actually make progress. My program is more like AA. You don't accept the idea of "just one drink." It's just a different way to go. Nothing wrong with other ways. You have described addictive behavior. Smoking is that way for me. I was a dedicated smoker for 30 years. I had to quit cold turkey. If I smoked even a single cigarette, I fear I would go all-in again. Therefore, I abstain completely. I am not that way with food. In fact, I polished-off a half gallon of Blue Bell Coffee ice cream this past weekend... and it was gooooooooood. Addictive is a medical term. I might nor go that far. But, there is no doubt in my mind that it's hard to go from sugary, salty, fatty recipe food to bland natural food. Sent from my SM-T330NU using Tapatalk
  4. I guess ole JimmyJoJimBob didn't get the reaction he was after, and couldn't take the ensuing hilarity, faux mockery, and puppeteering? Oh, yea, that's it..... I have a suggestion for you...why don't you show up in Hope in May, and talk/act like you do here? Or does your Mommy not want to drive you? That's a not so veiled physical threat. Which makes you a budding sociopath. We have to draw the line here pal. Moderators? Sent from my SM-T330NU using Tapatalk

  6. There is nothing inherently bad about intertwining food and culture. It just depends on the balance. There's a difference between having a food culture and having an unhealthy consumer driven culture. Some of the healthiest populations on the planet have a huge food culture and beat us in most every health test. The Mediterranean diet folks like around Greece, the Japanese, just a huge food culture yet they're healthier than we are. I was referring to life in the good ole USA. And, I have nothing to cut that needs a fancy knife. Sent from my SM-T330NU using Tapatalk
  7. I just KNEW it would be you who commented on the book! Funny!
  8. Brent Jesse has some nice Bugle Boys for $499 a pair. New Old Stock, made in Holland, in original box. Among the rarest of the BugleBoy type tubes made in Holland. These are the early Holland types with the long narrow plates, but these have the very scarce "tiny" Bugle Boy logo on the glass, the the very first production of the large halo getter. These may have been early test samples of the large halo getter, as the D-getter with the foil strip continued in general use until 1961. These are both Heerlen, Holland dated September, 1958. I have never seen other long plate Amperex 12AX7 with the halo getter, so it seems these tubes have nearly vanished from circulation, and a matched pair of these are usually not available anywhere in the world. The sweet sounding essence of the Bugle Boy type, these NOS gems have closely matched triodes internally and good labels.

  12. Some how, for the intended audience, this feels like the right response.
  13. Only 15,551 posts. So, not the whole thing. But, substantial enough to take not of when the DickClique says these 12 pages are BS, or whatever the latest is. I think I explained my love of FB in a very different way, didn't I? I think I described it as a universal aggregator. or is it aggravator, now I forgot.
  14. That's not quite my meaning. I put it in quotes as "food culture" to mean the massive campaign to keep everyone involved in (over)eating. The "food culture" is a mass media campaign of TV shows, magazines, newspaper articles, radio programs and corporate advertising which is aimed to flood the senses 24/7 with images of sugary, greasy, over-the-top food plates and recipes. An invasion of the consciousness to the degree that one can not escape the pull towards consuming ever more food of incredibly bad nutritional value. It's a permanent assault on the senses. I know you don't believe in advertising, or TV or media as an influential component in life, but for the rest of those who study sociology, it is very important. The evidence for this is everywhere you look - meaning, the waistlines of the population. Eating as a phenomenon of entertainment and pleasure is VERY seductive. Do you think those chain restaurants spend 100s of thousands of dollars making those dripping food TV adds because they don't work? Of course they work. So, Food + Culture might be fine. "Food Culture" is just my pet name for the phenomenon of getting the population to over eat.
