Is that like a barbecue you invite your friends and relatives to? You know, grill a few steaks, knock back a few beers, talk and maybe sign....

Well, I've always found a good vegetable oil with a high flash point, like peanut oil, works pretty well. Of course, the fat frying off is one of the things that enhances the flavor (unless you're in Canada or one of those places, when it enhances the flavour).

Abstract Background As tertiary structure is currently available only for a fraction of known protein families, it is important to assess what parts of sequence space have been structurally characterized. We consider protein domains whose structure can be predicted by sequence similarity to proteins with solved structure and address the following questions. Do these domains represent an unbiased random sample of all sequence families? Do targets solved by structural genomic initiatives (SGI) provide such a sample? What are approximate total numbers of structure-based superfamilies and folds among soluble globular domains?

It's amazing, innit? Here some guy sweated over phrasing that abstract in good faith, believing he was producing a value-added product, contributing some real thing to the world, and it ends up harmonizing with the whole theme of the MOAB. Ya gotta wonder whussup wid DAT!

That last statement implies that Moab doesn't add anything useful to the world must not stand unchallenged! Pistols at Dawn!

.... whispering....

Whats that?



....oh he's right. Ahh....

It would appear Sir I was somewhat hasty previously. Profiteroles at dawn will suffice

Ah, profiteroles! An exquisite choice! I would be most happy to serve as "friend" to either of the parties simply to be part of this affaire d'honoeur.

It should be noted that the last recorded duel involving profiteroles was in 1747 in Ballyfungus, County Donegal. Acting in a oafish manner the Baron Oatmele insulted the wife of Sir Hugh Mac Hugh ("THE Mac Hugh") by more-than-implying that the lady's second daughter by her first marriage, Caitleen O'Neill, had been instructed by the lady to be come "close friends (wink, wink)" with the Hereditary Elector of Ducky-Swanstein in the hopes that the Elector would "come through" with money to assist the lady in paying off the gambling debts she'd accumulated at Dublin's notorious Heckfire Club. Sir Mac Hugh, a man of considerable girth, challenged the Baron, and quite rightly, but insisted that the duel be conducted on horseback, at a gallop, while each man would have a dozen profiteroles. Given the inequity in widths (the Baron was widely know as "The Spurtle") the Donegal Commission on the Code Duello agreed and the duel was conducted at dawn on December 3, 1747. The Baron deloped and the Commission declared Sir Mac Hugh the "Winner And Still Champeen" and awarded him The Belt stating such. The Belt is still in the possession of the now much-reduced Mac Hugh family and can sometimes be seen in Red's Pawn Shop in Ballyfungus.

Is that from "Great Pastry Duels of the Western World" ?

- I once had a chance to look at Volume 1, which covers prior to the Fall of Rome, but have never had a chance to even SEE the later volumes.

The spurtle as we know it today evolved from this, which was found in an Tin Age house in the Outer Orkneys. Indications are that the "hussywyfe" used this to stir the porridge as her "hussiban" lay in the corner in a stupor brought on by too freely imbibing the local "whoopywattr" (actually he was still in the corner sleeping it off when the house was discovered in 1897).

The spurtle's evolutionary trail split when the perforated spurtle, or chanter as it is called today, was inserted into a sheep's stomach filled with oatmeal porridge and blown. The resulting sounds were so incredulous that not even the Highlanders themselves could believe them and adopted the sound of the so-called musical instrument as their racially-identifying mating call.

Because of this, a movement towards non-perforated spurtles gained tremendous momentum and resulted in the kitchen utensil of today.

The word "spurtle" comes from the "spurt" of porridge which comes when a perforated chanter is inserted into a pot of cooking porridge and blown.

The forgoing was adapted from Chinook and Hausenpfieffer's definitive work Highland and Lowland Spurtles of the Outer Orkneys and Scotland in General (Edinborough: Hamish & Wee 'Uns, 1906).

So it seems that not only did the huswyf not believe in the sounds, but the sounds reciprocally disbelieved there was any such thing possible as a huswyf?

I hate uppity, skeptical sounds. They should learn their place.

Considering that the Outer Orkneys House (or OOH) was reliably dated to April 7, 5398 BCE, at 1453 GMT and the haggis (which is Old Lower Scots Gaelic for "betcha won't eat THIS") from only 1867, I doubt it.

A similar dish was made from before history started until 1867 CE, when it changed. The earlier recipe was made in a sheep's bladder and contained chopped ilk innards, thistle roots, and the seeds of various wild grasses and seaweeds. The stuffed bladder was then boiled for several days in "wylde seewattr" before being thrown at the English or, on the three days when there were no English in Scotland, in the general direction of England.

This was called "hagus." Note difference in spelling and pronunciation -- it has very often been confused with the more recent culinary disaster, "haggis."

Now. Everyone open their Bibles and turn to Deuteronomy, Chapter 34, verses 5-7. There you will find it written that Moses, THE Moses, died in and was buried in...MOAB!!! And not the one in Utah, either!

Yes, Moses, the Leader of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, the dude who brought down the Ten Commandments, the Head Honcho of the Exodus, the cat who brought the plagues on Egypt, that Moses, is somewhere in MOAB.

Which tells you something about either Moses or MOAB (or both).

Speaking purely as a lesser prophet, I can confirm Rapaire's suspicion that Moses was buried somewhere in this thread. It wasn't his fault, really; he tried. He was just too serious, and couldn't keep up. So he got covered up with high-speed BS somewhere in the vicinity of 9,322.

Branding. Yup, all the companies today talk about "branding": Toyota, Coca-Cola, all of them. The idea is to became so identified with a brand that you immediately identify when you hear the word.

Now, out here in the Wild West "branding" has a bit of a different meaning. There's the Crazy-Leg T, the Ten In Texas (XIT), and lots of others.

So an email came through on "branding" libraries: making them identifiable with an idea.

But I'm in the Wild and Wooly West, not in New Yawk or Boise or something. So I have today sent off an application to the Idaho State Brand Inspector to register the brand MPL connected with a rocker so that this library can, if we choose, run cattle, sheep, and horses.

And by the way -- this isn't BS. I really have.

"Crap is a term meaning either poor quality or feces. The former meaning is sometimes considered mildly vulgar; the latter meaning is oftentimes considered mildly or moderately vulgar, but could be, on occasion, viewed as strongly vulgar by means of scatological and sensory-provoking use of the word.

In its former meaning it also connotes inaccurate, of little factual substance, lies, hype, or quackery. It can be partnered with "bull" to enhance the power of the word.

The word is considered by many people to be less offensive than "shit", which holds similar meanings and can be used nearly interchangeably. Some people find the word crap offensive, even if not intended to mean feces, and will use the minced oath "crud" instead. Alternatively, for some people, crap more closely retains its association with feces than "shit" and is therefore more offensive than the latter."

Before we start slinging around black pots and kettles, BB, let's both acknowledge that your bow is strung just a little too tight to tolerate much of the wide-ranging repartee on this thread. Your distinctions are of no consequence when it come to the quality of discourse in the MOAB.

Mom says you need to go outside and play, and she said to give you some sidewalk chalk so you can go write a sonnet on a freeway retaining wall. I suggest a linear format on the left side of the road or drivers won't have time to read it (unless traffic has ground to a halt, in which case you can make it as tall as you want.)

When Mom says 'Go outside and play!'
There isn't much a lad can say;
If wise, he just gets on his way,
Knowing there are worlds of folded danger
Within her gentle command.

And let him thankful be,
That she not spankful be
And let the screen door close behind
Unscarred by wrath in Mother's mind
And Mother's wrathful hand.

The world without is full of Other
To satify a curious brother,
And leave behind the mines and bombs
That lurk within all pissed-off Moms
Should one against them stand.
