    I think it was maybe 4 years ago that Alex posted pictures of him all dressed up in some Lithuanian folk costume for some festival and I called him the Mayor of Munchkin City. So he's like 3.5 yrs later than he should have been.

    It doesn't matter. I delete half your replies on my feed anyway.

    So, FB really is just a continuation of high school, isn't it?

    The Iron Man mask and overstuffed toy cabinet in the back really make that video. Guy totally does not have kids either. Clearly an avid WWE fan too.

    I'm sure it's good, but in those random jugs it has that 'this may cause blindness' look to it. Or that it was delivered by an orange Dodge Charger with a confederate flag on the roof.

    (Edit - just looked up the recipe. 190-proof?! Wow! That'll make you forget about winter!)

    So, probably as a result of this thread, I made a stray Arby's reference to one of my daughters yesterday and then I asked if she knew what it was. Of course she said. Coincidentally, one of her classmates had just given a presentation about their apparently industry-worst animal cruelty issues. Started right out with "WE HAVE THE MEATS!" as his intro.

    Unfortunately it has put quite a different connotation on the thread title for me now.

    Tell her I said " sorry for partying".


    My daughter is a vegetarian for those reasons.
    She told me one Time she had to make up for my earth destroying tendencies. She spends too much time around her mother.

    Well, yes - you make it with grain which is 190 proof, but there is also water added. After the simmering and honey and spices, it ends up about 80 proof.

    How clear does it get if you let it sit for an extended period of time? I imagine time is good for it.

    Tell her that it's her business if she wants to abdicate her place at the top of the food chain. Just don't make it anyone else's.

    Being half Lithuanian, I'm offended.

    I use FB out of necessity for business pages. Hate that I have to keep a personal profile there (although it's an alias, so nobody knows who I am). But damn, it's a very useful tool to weed out potential hires. People say the stupidest things under their own name for everybody to see.

    I like pork bellies in moderation and in a balanced entree or appetizer, like in a Sichuan dish. As a sandwich, especially a fast food sandwich, it would be overkill.

    Letting it sit may mellow the flavor a bit but basically just lets the remaining unfiltered spices settle out. The small bottle is my wife's the larger one is something a friend will be bringing to market soon in CT.

    If we're talking 20 minute residence time, I don't think you need to be concerned about either fat or sodium absorption. A tasty BOOM-a-lax.

    Are you really defending a pork belly sandwich from Arby's?

    Go get one.

    It amounts to a bacon fat sandwich.

    Delicious

    The way he lets the cheese just slop off his sandwich without any regard like some sort of pre-historic barbarian is unbearable.

    Went to Mrs. Chin's 20 year HS reunion about a month ago.

    FB has killed all the fun of reunions. You are FB friends with people you like and know exactly what is going on in their lives. People you really don't care to talk to aren't your FB friends and it helps avoid the awkward conversations at reunions.

    Never had one, but the anecdotal evidence for significant therapeutic value is compelling.

    It ain't the best lobster roll by a long shot (for starters, it's cold, which is not my preference), but in a pinch it's a decent value, shockingly decent quality and relatively healthy as compared with the rest of the menu.
