    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.

    This both amused yet somehow ticked me off. So last night, great food, nice wine, great setting. It was a vintner's dinner. Two bubble headed girls/women obviously tipsy by the time first course arrives. Typically vapid, convinced everyone is watching them. Chef stops by our table to chat with me. After several minutes, they call to him across the dining room, to come over so they can ask a question. In a loud, shrill voice, "We were just wondering what this fish is?" She was holding up, in her fingers, one of the perfectly seared scallops that Chef had just talked about to the entire room. [​IMG]

    I spent about 90 minutes first thing this morning cutting habaneros for various preparations.
    My hands were double-gloved.
    Didn't do a damn thing.
    I wash my hands on average 30 times a day in an average shift. I've washed them about 50 times today, and it won't stop burning. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That is much more offensive than not knowing about food.

    I cut up habaneros this past Sunday. Wasn't thinking and accidentally rubbed my nose vigorously because got some random dust in it. Shit burned like a motherfucker for hours and Monday my hands burned for a good six hours.

    People who argue that a fillet is the best cut of beef. I counter that, no, the ribeye is superior as it has much more flavor and is just as tender. They come back with, the ribeye is just a bunch of fat, so you're wasting a lot of money on fat. Yes the ribeye is marbled, the fat is where the flavor is. Well, the fillet must be the best cut, because it's the most expensive. Logic fail [​IMG]

    After the argument we get to lunch at a seafood place and the guy orders a fillet medium-well.

    Just to tie this whole thread back to Style,

    how is this argument different from the clothing argument, highly regarded and held dear here, that the likes of Kiton are "BEST"?

    It's not, and I think it's safe to say that pretty much any argument of "X is the best because it's the most expensive" is a fundamental failure in logic.

    only way to get rid of the burn is to eat the pepper. by the time that stops burning so will the other spots.
