    How bad does it have to get to consider emigrating?

    • RBG dies before the election, Mitch McConnell shoves in another lifelong lunatic into the Supreme Court, Trump wins his second term.garbage
    • Let's be honest though, Americans used to be figuratively toxic. Expatriation might be tough now that we're literally toxic.garbage

    • The imperial system of units (and anyone who uses it) can suck my dickbabydick

    • I'm totally metric (and definitely well mexico) but a 'craftsperson' made me realise recently that inches and feet have their place in some contexts.Nairn
    • Continuity nobody is measuring with body parts though. Don’t be ridiculous.monospaced
    • Not explicitly, but inches work with hand scales and feet with limbs, yards with general heights of people. As approximations, they kinda work.Nairn
    • Like, I know what a 6 foot drop is, but 1.8 isn't quite so meaningful. They're both useless in their own ways, but still we have meanings ascribed to them.Nairn
    • I still fucking hate it when people send me files based in Imperial units and describe them as such on the phone or emails or whatever. Twats.Nairn
    • 'nobody is measuring with body parts though' Really? What's a foot, then, other than a body part?Continuity
    • Hotroddy. We use both. The only reason we still use imperial is cuz we trade with US. Otherwise we will be using metric.pango
    • What would really make me happy is if Canada switched 100% to ISO216/DIN paper sizes. But, again, US trade ...Continuity

    • Uh, OK, mono.
      Fuck me, you're thick.
    • Thick? Please. Nobody uses a body part to take measurements, that’s ridiculous. Unless you are prohibitively literal you could understand.monospaced
    • That’s like saying you weight things with stones. You would reply “no, a stone is a weight, we don’t actually use rocks to measure. That’s ridiculous.” Samemonospaced
    • Obviously nobody uses their foot just like nobody uses rocks. Maybe once upon a time nearly lost in history it was done and set, but that’s the extent.monospaced

    What's with your bizarre aversion to measuring dry ingredients sensibly and logically by weight, instead of by volume in recipes?

    • Because our recipes are written in volumes and so are measuring cups.monospaced
    • And weighing each ingredient is tedious. That being said I do want a kitchen scale for when I want to cook like a proper cunt.monospaced
    • You people are fucked up.Continuity
    • Americans cook with cups of tomatoes and buckets of rice.face_melter
    • And a size 42 Air Jordan 2 holds just the right amount of beans.face_melter
    • Wait.
      Having kitchen scales makes me a cunt?
      I didn't need it anyway, but this on top of everything? Jeez. They're like £8.
    • Top tip: the measurement of flour in a crepe recipe should be about the weight of each egg used. Doesn't matter whether it's metric or imperial.Nairn
    • Can't do that with a fucking cup.

      Whatever a fucking cup is.

      Hopefully not menstrual.
    • Cooking is not exact science. Close enough is good enough. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯pango
    • it was a joke, Nairn, relax :)monospaced
    • Recipes that use cups and tablespoons are designed to have accurate weights in the end. The recipes work :)monospaced
    • I take my cooking seriously. I do want a kitchen scale. But I still have the issue of having 90-99% of all recipes using volume not weight.monospaced
    • Many ways of cooking, I 'spose. Sometimes I measure, I used to weigh, but mostly I just wing it.garbage
    • Perfect example: a cup of onions. I'm not going to potentially waste part of an onion because it overflows your fucking cup, which should be used for liquids.Continuity
    • Ditto garlic. A tablespoon of garlic? How many cloves is that? WTF?Continuity
    • oh please, even garlic cloves come in different sizes, so are you telling me you chop and weigh them?monospaced
    • Nope. I make a decision how many cloves I want in my dish.Continuity
    • ^Nairn
    • I have a garlic bulb here. One large clove is 3x bigger than one of the smaller ones. Not all cloves are considered equal. C'mon.monospaced
    • tablespoon works well for garlic ... it's an amount (volume) to use when your bulbs are of differing sizes (volumes). Weight works too.monospaced
    • I guess my point is that using volumes (which are based on weights, roughly), actually does work, and that's WHY we use them?monospaced
    • And like I said, I do want a kitchen scale. It allows for far more accurate baking (you're RIGHT). To write off WHY we do this as incompetence is just silly.monospaced
    • Finally please don’t confuse this discussion as me saying metric weight isn’t superior. It is. I’m only answering the “why” and defending it a bit.monospaced
    • Jeez, these comments. Cooking is about instinct and experience, not spoon fed (!) measurements.fadein11
    • baking is more of a science, but the rest... nah.fadein11
    • Garlic should be measured by the handfulscarabin

    Why do you call pasta and spaghetti 'noodles' instead of their actual given name? Is Fusilli 'twisty noodles'?

    And in turn what do you call actual-factual noodles - Mystical Eastern Edible String?

    Why is your better salt 'Kosher salt'?

    • as long as it doesn't come in contact with something not kosher...renderedred
    • as far as i know no pigs roaming salt farms :)renderedred
    • I don't know, I'm not versed in kosher processes, but I know they exist.monospaced
    • Not all salt is kosher, though. Iodized synthetic salt is not prepared according to Kosher standards. That's why there's a different version.monospaced
    • You're right in the sense that a rabbi COULD bless anything and make it kosher, but that is separate from Kosher guidelines, in my understanding.monospaced
    • ..."The name stems from the salt’s original use: to draw blood out of meat so that it meets the dietary rules set by Jewish law." :)toemaas
    • And it's made for cooking, not for shaking on stuff.toemaas
    • @mono you made research, there is a special kind of salt used to make meat kosher, yes, other than that all salt is kosher.renderedred
    • you made ME researchrenderedred
    • Salt can be kosher but not all salt is kosher style salt. There’s rock salt and iodized table salt too. Totally different.monospaced
    • My guess on why the name stuck is that it’s uniquely tied to some sort of actual history and sociology of the nation at some point.monospaced
    • ask any jew @mono salt is assumed to be kosher. i am only half jew so for me all salt is kosher ;)renderedred
    • See! Now we're getting somewhere! Woo!toemaas
    • It's pretty simple. Put a salt cellar on your counter, fill it with Kosher salt. Pinch to flavor.garbage
    • Just call it kitchen salt ffsi_was
    • Table salt and kosher salt are different types of salt regardless of official kosher blessing. It’s a name for a type of salt ffs not just the religious name.monospaced

    • Kosher is big scam, a bunch of Rabbi's shaking down food processing plants for a good buck. Nothing but extortion.utopian

    Also, is using the term 'Oriental' verboten over there?

    I've had flak for using it in the past on here - but in the UK it's a commonly-used descriptor.

    • I think it falls into the same 'no-go' category as saying 'eskimo' in Canada.Continuity
    • When referring to people, yes, typically not when referring to objectswhatthefunk
    • It also fucks up measuring out salt in a recipe, if you use antiquted spoons to measure a dry ingredient. So, then, one is forced to figure out ...Continuity
    • ... how much a tablespoon of kosher salt weighs, and then measure out the same weight in whatever other salt one typically uses.Continuity
    • *antiquated. Fuck me, I seem to have contracted whatever degenerative brain disease afflicts yurimon/deathboy.Continuity
    • Also, all three of the above notes belong to the post below. Fucking hell.Continuity
    • We have a lot of different asians, so we address them from where they come from.toemaas
    • hahaha, wonderful.

      @whatthefunk - makes sense! hadn't thought about it that way
    • Remember the scene in Peep Show where Mark makes a Nazi friend and he asks Jez if he fancies a Chinky? Oriental is not on.garbage
    • I'd not use it for a person. I hadn't otherwise thought about it much. I've only ever thought about it in vague cultural terms - food and generic articles &cNairn
    • Also, The Orient is a term for the East, traditionally comprising anything that belongs to the Eastern world, in relation to Europe.whatthefunk
    • It is the antonym of Occident, the Western World. So The Orient for the US is Europe I guess.whatthefunk
    • The term "Orient" derives from the Latin word oriens meaning "east". Do Aussies use the term? Seems geographically significant and not used there, idkwhatthefunk
    • To be fair, saying anything other than 'Oriental rug' would just sound weird.Continuity
    • In the UK, if you described someone as Asian you would probably be referring to someone from India or Pakistan.Chimp
    • Well they're not wrongpango
    • Only old people use "orient" in Canada. Or where I live at leastpango
    • Oriental doesn't even mean one place. It's China for UK speakers, Iran for rugs, Egypt for the Oriental Orthodox church. And it's racist in North America.monNom

    Why is it you Amercians — when abroad, in a non-Anglophone country — automatically launch into speaking English with someone from said country, without first respectfully and politely asking if they actually speak English?

    • As a matter of principle, when I encounter this in Germany, I simply say, 'Tut mir leid. Ich spreche kein Englisch'.Continuity
    • Or 'Désolé, j'parle pas l'anglais', when I encounter it in France.Continuity
    • I don't. We have free "Mango Language" programs at our public libraries that teach language learning for free and prepare you for the basics when visiting...toemaas

    • Most Americans don't like those people either :)toemaas
    • Fuck knows where they've been offloaded from. Certainly not cruise ships, I'm land-locked.Continuity
    • Maybe b/c out of the world's approximately 7.5 billion inhabitants, 1.5 billion speak English — that's 20% of the Earth's population.whatthefunk
    • English is by far the most commonly studied foreign language in the world, and most americans only speak 1 language so, ya know...whatthefunk
    • Brits do this too.
      I've seen Germans do as much in Spain.
      I'm sure lots of shithead tourists from wherever do this.
    • And that gives you license to ignore things like respect to local culture and language and politeness in a non-Anglo country. Got it.Continuity
    • Next couple of decades we're probably going to see lots of shithead Han chinese tourists come over and give us a taste of our own bitter medicine.Nairn
    • I could see that. They already think cycle lanes are meant for walking in, in their entire bus complement numbers, despite huge markings to the contrary.Continuity

    For the life of me I don't understand why there is such delight by you people in the notion of a decline of the American Empire. IF America were to cease to exist, do you not realize what that would mean for the rest of the free world? What that would mean specifically for you?

    Already America is the reason you people are speaking English and not German or Russian. What language do you think you would be speaking of America ceased to exist?

    • @continuity I missed this. I could write you a novel. The Carolinas have a their own civil war between Lexington and Eastern style. Lex has it right, btw.garbage
    • That style has bled down into the deep south, and they have their own flavors. Birmingham has the best BBQ, but that's my own bias. Less molasses, more heat.garbage
    • Also more burnt ends, which is traditionally a KC style. Texans deal with brisket, which is totally different. Floridians should stick to seafood.garbage

    Thank you for pronouncing "Z" as "Zee" and not "Zed". It rhymes with "A B C D E" so much better.

    We as the rest of the world will adopt this if you get rid of a "1/3 cup"

    • In modern Greek, yes, but not in ancient Greek, from which is originates.Continuity
