There was an article on seriouseats that argued for the least amount of water. That way, it boils faster, returns to a boil faster after the pasta is added and more of the starches stay on the pasta which allows for better adherence of sauce. Also when you finish the pasta in the sauce, it makes for a slightly more smoother sauce because the pasta water added to the sauce can act as a thickening agent along with the surface starch on the pasta.
While the F-22 is a long-range fighter vs the F-35 is a short-medium range fighter. As mentioned previously with the F117 and the F-35, the most the F-22 can perform is niche. Especially with it's price and certain shortcomings, there was no reason to continue to fund it. I can see the point where the F-22 is the most advanced of fighters but there is are so many reasons why it's use is limited. I will use one example. It is safe to say that the days of dogfights in...
Mafoofan justs wants to pin every lacking of America as a failure on Obama's part.

This is idiotic. You say it's ObamaFAIL because the chinese have developed a fighter that can compete or even best the F-35 or F-22. The J-20 had to be at least in development during the Bush years. How does Obama cancelling the F-22 has anything to do with the J-20 being superior to the F-22? If my memory serves me right, development for F-22 started in the 80's with the F-35 starting in the early 90's. It's makes logical sense for the Chinese to develop something that...

This is not rocket science: Girl Hot -> yes Talks to you -> yes - - - Basically, she doesn't think you are a creep. Thus depending how you play it, you can sleep with her. That's enough to continue on. You are not gonna marry her anything close to that. Besides, a hot girl increases you chances to meet even hotter girls with a personality you match up with. So what's there to lose? Since you are not that interested anyway, you can keep her at arm's left...
After you rinse the rice and pour the excess water, you have to let leave it alone for 30 minutes so the rice kernels absorb what little remaining water coating the rice. That way, you ensure perfect texture of the cooked rice and less water during boiling and less boiling time. When cooking, the ratio is 1 part rice, 1.25-1.50 part water(closer to 1.25). You can add a piece of kombu to the water if you like. Personally, I have mastered cooking rice in a pot on the...
