1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I betcha a lot of nations turned to Celsius because France promised them a bunch of free croissants. (I would make certain life changes for free croissants too, but I would not pretend that 100 is the boiling point that cray!)

    For water, not all fluids boil at the same temperature, also it depends on elevation.

    Any liquid starts to boiling at 100 degrees gotta be a pretty weak liquid (can't take the heat get outta the kitchen).

    An old mountaineering trick is to boil water to calculate altitude.

    It's actually 83.785%, but only 3% of people know that.

    a gratin made with Daiya cheese might be the most discusting thing on earth. it's one tiny spot less vile than a poop sandwich.


    i ate a handful of that Daiya shit once. just reached in, and slammed a bunch into my mouth. MISTAKE.

    No wonder the old mountaineers went extinct. Why didn't they just check the GPS on their phones. Dummies.

    The problem with vegan food is when it tries to approximate something non-vegan. If it's just a dish that happens to have no meat or dairy in it? Fine. I eat lots of stuff like that. Hell, I had a bowl full of roasted broccoli for dinner the other night. But the minute you try to tell me something is "just like chicken/beef/cheese/butter/whatever", the gag reflex kicks in.

    I like vegetables. Fake meat made from vegetables, not so much.

    So you guys are saying that if you had a choice, you'd prefer to eat the "meat and two veg". I hear you

    I bet that that broccoli would have been better with some butter or some cheese. Just saying. However, claiming that fruits and veg as being vegan --- is not how the term is used. Its not as if produce at the grocery store is labeled vegan. No one asks for the vegan apple orchard to go pick apples.

    The real problem with "vegan food" is that it is vegan. It tastes like crap. No way of getting around it.

    I agree with all of your points (Ksilk, I put some almond milk in my mashed taters). I don't do the processed faux meats, cheeses, butters. If I want real cheese, I have it. Just not frequently. Tofu also does not tickle my fancy.

    Trying to make vegan meals that mirror non-vegan foods means you are missing the point entirely, IMO.
