From what absolutely little I know, yes. Sustaining the reaction at such high temps for long is, as of now, difficult.

This sounds like gatekeeping with extra steps. If I enjoy something, why should it matter if internet strangers don't? Not to mention, I could give a rat's ass if others look down on me for enjoying something I'm not the "target demographic" for. That being said, Voyager's "Bride of Chaotica" is and will continue to be an excellent episode. Thank you for coming to my Tedtalk.

So, as a Star Trek fan over the age of 30, I'm not allowed to watch Star Trek Prodigy without being labeled a creep? Got it. There are better metrics for identifying people that might endanger a child. These blanket accusations might net you 1 in 100 million. Otherwise, it's just people enjoying something.

Shredder's underrated introduction from 1990's live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ( www.youtube.com )

I watched Mutant Mayhem over the weekend (which was great). I haven't watched the 1990 movie in years, but I was suddenly reminded how powerful this scene is for what is ostensibly a silly action movie for kids: the elongated shadow, the percussive score with ominous electric guitar accents, the camera tracking down from its...

Apex Legends streamers surprised to find aimbot and other hacks added to their PCs in the middle of major competition via anti-cheat software ( www.pcgamer.com )

Wow it finally happened. So glad I switched to steam running on linux mint last week. I refused to install helldivers because it wanted to install some no holds barred god level permissions anti-cheat software. Windows 11 was the last straw for me. Good times.....

I can't say I'm not upset by this, but then I was taught violins is not the answer.

While I don't mean to harp and I'm not one to bassoon, but I've noticed moreso it's boomers who fiddle around with emojis.

I'd be a lyre if I said yu weren't clever.

"I will never surrender!" The third 60th anniversary special script has a lovely, unfilmed coda for Wilfred Mott ( leminal.space )

A short while back the BBC added a batch of new/never before seen scripts to their Doctor Who database, including the 60th specials. Tucked away at the tail end of "The giggle" is an alternate ending scene featuring Wilfred Mott that the late Bernard Cribbins didn't shoot before his demise:...

So, this is what a 2 year delay worth of studio interference, poor audience testing, and aimlessly hopeful reshoots gets us. The only thing surprising is that it's not a WB product about to be shelved.

Back ribs ( lemmy.world )

Cherry smoke. 4 hours at 225, then wrapped in paper and back on for another hour at 275. I moved to Seattle a couple years ago and have been doing tons of briskets and boudin for the Seattle people that don’t know great bbq, but I was missing a nice rib. Cut em up and served em but kept the chonky ends for myself. Left the...

They look gorgeous! I've recently seen a trend toward not removing the silverskin and was wondering if it's just to help with rib meat retention on the bone or otherwise. Any insight you could provide would be most welcome.

Fair enough and thanks for answering. For baby backs, I'll usually leave it on as it's typically thin as you saw. I occasionally make a marinade style spare rib recipe where I cut them individually without removing the silverskin and quick grill. When smoking, I've taken to removing it, but recently saw a video on some top tier Texas BBQ place that doesn't bother. Thought maybe there's something to it.

Absolutely. Old recipe from my grandfather:

  • about 1 cup each equal parts white vinegar and soy sauce (I tend toward 3:2 for the tanginess)
  • 1 bottle or can of beer (he used Bud, but I prefer a hazy)
  • 1 rough chopped sweet onion
  • 1 whole head smashed garlic cloves
  • red chili flakes to your liking
  • 1 tablespoon or so whole black peppercorns or ground or both
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Stir and taste prior to adding ribs.

Trim and cut ribs (2 racks), marinate minimum 12 hours (I've pushed to 72 for heavier flavor), grill med-high heat. Turns out fantastic every time.
edit: spare ribs specifically, as baby backs have more fat and are more tender to start

New research shows that the insects flying around the streetlights are in fact in a living hell that we made for bugs.

Essentially, their tiny bug brains think the light is the sunset, so they keep turning to keep the "sun" at the same angle so they can go "straight." No matter how far they fly, they don't make any progress. They are trapped in this little hell we made just for them, not understanding why they can't get to where they are going.

No Paxton. No Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Can't abide.

Before reading the description, I saw a habañero over spinach and thought maybe I'd been missing out on some odd tradition. Might have to try it now.
