  1. These pans are all restaurant ready and for the most part last a very long time in a commercial kitchen (so they'll last forever in your kitchen). You can find whatever you want from non-stick to all clad without chemicals. I've bought some deli containers from them, they deliver fairly quickly. As far as what metal, it's a matter of preference, but I tend to go for the steel pans with aluminum cores. This pan specifically is what I would normally use in a restaurant.
  2. Pretty sure he wrote it down in a word document first before practicing it in a mirror in case he forgot his line.
  3. Life is always worth living, even during the lowest of lows, there is always a reason to take another step forward. While my mind wasn't changed on the "sticks and stones" part, this video did resonate with me, as I was the freak, the weirdo, shorty, and so on. Later on it was "that Richland kid," as I had to transfer schools to a rival school. One of my epiphanes back then was that their words were as shallow as a puddle, because they were nothing but cowards, and as a result, they weren't worth my time, my breath, or my notice. I omitted their existence from my mind; it's strange to see a school of a thousand kids be reduced to less than 50. From then on, I chose only to recognize action, and not words, and let me tell you, it's a vastly different perspective. I live in a state of being where words can never possibly hurt me, because my actions, my choices, protect me. For example, someone calls me useless, "I know I'm not useless, I have been given added responsibilities at work because of my ability to work fast," or if they say that I'm a terrible human being, "I will care for anyone who comes through my door, and if someone says they are hungry, I will do what I can to make sure they are fed." Constant vindication was my ally, because even if other people hate me, I know there is nothing wrong with me. Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words will never hurt me. With that being said, I know other people aren't like me, I just wanted to share two of the methods I use to cope with my own mental struggles. If someone does try the method of self vindication or the method of erasing the existence of negative people from your mind, I would love to hear some feedback on how well it worked for you.
  4. @MadCast: Wazap This is not about the other kind of furries (not that there is anything wrong with them)
  5. Share your furry friends if you have them. This is Snow, she's about 9 years old, she's very loveable. edit: I need to change the video format edit 2: fixed it I think Edit 3: lol nope, this is it
  6. I'm both for and against. The idea that pineapple is a normal topping is wrong. The idea that pineapple can be used as a supporting flavor is not. I've put fresh pineapple on a pizza before because it tasted better that way, because artisan pizzas are not the same as normal pizzas.
  7. Growing up for me was not a good experience. From the age of 9 I had suicidal thoughts, I felt pain for reasons I never really understood. For a long time I had a long scar on my left arm from when I thought I was trying to commit suicide. I was bullied extremely often in school for being short, which led to me not having many friends if at all. I was 3 feet tall at the age of 12 (I'm now 5'7", one hell of a growth spurt). Between being a social outcast and my dad being fairly abusive emotionally, I really didn't learn how to start socializing until after high school. The one positive thing I gained from my experience is that if I encounter a problem I just run at it until it's fixed, and if one way doesn't work, I evaluate what's going on. In 2010 I started dating someone who would tell me occasionally that she didn't know if she loved me, so that messed with my mind, she dumped me in late 2011, and I really had a hard time getting over that, my issues with depression and suicidal thoughts and feelings really ramped up because I didn't have the social skillset to reach out to anyone. 2016 I tried doing summer sales one summer and my depression got incredibly severe that I got sent home so the company I was selling for wouldn't be liable. I took a few weeks to recuperate with my family and I really just put myself to work until I bought my first house, and the emotional high I got from that kept me going for a few months until I started dipping back into unhealthy habits (not eating, not sleeping, not doing laundry often enough, not socializing in church activities). At the end of 2017 I started taking meds for depression, and while it helped, I just felt mute and everything was in gray. I didn't feel anything different, it's just that my emotions were quieter. Going into 2018 I stopped to self reflect about what my problems were. I thought about what was happening to me and I considered if I actually had depression or not, because there are some mental illnesses have depression as a symptom. After some research, the one thing that resonated with me was hypersexuality. The traits and characteristics of that illness seems to fit me. Now, after knowing this and accepting this idea, I've become much better mental health wise. It's an uncomfortable topic to talk about, but I don't feel any shame in saying I'm a hypersexual, because it's true, and now I can take better care of myself because of it. I guess the thing I really want to say is that once you accurately come to terms with whatever your struggle is, and recognizing that it's truly a part of your life, you can begin to treat it or move on from it. I'm not trying to invalidate anyone's struggle, but make sure that you're treating the source of your mental illness and not simply the symptoms. If anyone would ever like to talk about what they are going through, I'm more than happy to listen. That's another thing I've found that helps me. Helping others helps me as well.
  8. My favorite phrase in spanish is "Quieres comprar un Pato?"
  9. Desert Punk isn't a movie but there's still lots of shooty gunnys
  10. So wednesdays are my only days off ever. The last time I did this I felt like it was worthwhile for the two candidates who took me up on the offer so I'm going to do the same thing again this week. I'm going to be available for most of the day on wednesday, so if you are looking to get some attention on your candidate threads, comment in this topic on what times during the day you'll be available and I'll make sure that I'm available at that time. I play Warframe, Overwatch, and League of Legends, and I'm open to other games as well so long as they are free to play, I really want this to be about you guys. I hope to hear back from some candidates.
  11. This is worth mentioning. My roommate came out of her room in only a blanket, ate some cake, said it was good, and went back to bed.
  12. So, listen up guys. Lately I've had a hankerin, the rumblies in my tumblies. The only cure for this is something that many of you would dare not consider. There are people who say it's unnatural and that it should never be done There are people who say I'm a terrible, awful human being for even wanting such an absurdity However, my need grows stronger. So I must satisfy it. Today I made Chocolate Cake With MAYONNAISE That's right, this forum post is dedicated to Chocolate Mayonnaise cake. There's the obvious question of "why would you ever put those two things together?" The answer of which is simple, because it's delicious. Let's get one thing clear. I hate mayonnaise as a condiment. It's gross, and disgusting to me, yet in the context of this cake, I love it. First, a little science stuff Mayonnaise is an emulsified form of oil and eggs, two common ingredients that are commonly found in cakes as well as an acid of some sort to help stabilize the mixture. The water inside of the eggs and the oil serve as a base of the mixture, while the fatty parts of the egg, known as lecithin (which is amphiphilic, a cool word that means it binds to polar and non polar molecules, aka oil and water) and the proteins inside of the yolk help to emulsify the mixture. As acid is added to the emulsion, the more oil can be emulsified without the mixture breaking (when the oil and water separates). Think of emulsion as people are going to a birthday party, and everyone loves the birthday person, but might not like each other. The Lecithin provides the house where the birthday party is, and the acid can make the house bigger (to a point, the water within the acid is still polar by nature, and there can only be so many friends at the party), and the only rule is that if you are going to be in the house, you have to get along. So they all talk about how they love the birthday person and keep it at that. Utilizing this method, you can emulsify lots of things. A plain butter sauce for example, is just butter and water, which normally would separate, but the milk solids within the butter is the birthday person, who is amphiphilic, so naturally, the water and the clarified portions of the butter like the birthday person. So, given that the mayonnaise, comprised of oil and eggs, is simply those two things and nothing more, it's only natural to assume that mayonnaise within a cake batter makes sense. Especially since the cake then becomes more moist and soft, mostly due to the broken down protein structures within the mayonnaise that you wouldn't find in regular eggs. Here are some pictures I took making this cake. The essential ingredient Mix it with everything into the cake pan we go The final product, it's more dense than I want it to be, but it's still very delicious. And of course, some spatula licking, no cake making is ever complete without it. I also need to shave Now for the recipe. I actually stole this from epicurious because I'm not a baker and anytime I've tried to wing it, it's always failed. Even today, I failed a bit because I adjusted the recipe, but the cake is still really good. INGREDIENTS 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate (do not exceed 61% cacao), chopped 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1 3/4 cups boiling water 2 3/4 cups all purpose flour 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 1 cup sugar 1 cup (packed) dark brown sugar 1 1/3 cups mayonnaise (do not use reduced-fat or fat-free) 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract PREPARATION For cake: Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour three 8-inch-diameter cake pans with 1 1/2-inch-high sides. Combine chopped chocolate and cocoa powder in medium metal bowl. Add 1 3/4 cups boiling water and whisk until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Sift flour, baking soda, and baking powder into another medium bowl.Using electric mixer, beat both sugars and mayonnaise in large bowl until well blended, 2 to 3 minutes. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating until well blended after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Add flour mixture in 4 additions alternately with chocolate mixture in 3 additions, beating until blended after each addition and occasionally scraping down sides of bowl. Divide batter among prepared cake pans (about 2 1/3 cups for each). Bake cakes until tester inserted into center comes out clean, 30 to 32 minutes. Cool cakes in pans on racks 20 minutes. Run small knife around sides of cakes to loosen. Carefully invert cakes onto racks and let cool completely.
