Regarding your thoughts vis a vis superficial characteristics of people we meet such as the color of their skin or where they were born or what they or their parents' religion or lack thereof is/was or their eye color or sexual proclivities or whether they prefer the Beatles over the Rolling Stones or whether or not the Genome Project does or doesn't tell us they have Neanderthal mitochondria on their motherfucking doubly helical DNA strands (which I definitely DO by the way and I hope that isn't TMI) -

li!

None of that shit matters!


For fux sake, are we not fucking aDULTs here? Have we not each of us at Our Salon lived an average of 4 to 6 motherfucking DECades? Are the use of nuance in a discussion, and the ability to think on more than one level at the same motherfucking time, skills which we abandoned when we left the more intellectually rigorous environs of Open Salon or is it just an unfortunate coincidence that approximately a quarter of the active members on this site somehow never developed those skills at all? Why do people who are OBVIOUSLY dyed-in-the-wool, open minded, compassionate progressives from working class backgrounds get raked over the coals time and time again as supposed racists or elitists or whatever kind of "ists" a particular fucktard is having anger management issues with that particular day? A very nicely dressed black woman once walked on a bus in Kansas City and spent ten minutes screaming and spitting directly in my face about what a worthless, evil, murdering honkie Jew I am and how I and every one of my fellow worthless, evil, murdering honkie Jews need to all die ASAP, but you know what? I went ahead and gave her the benefit of the doubt that she had more reasons to be pissed off than I did as I rode that bus to the end of the fucking line, jumped off, and walked a mile and a half so I could spend 10 hours in a fucking barn at negative 15 degrees Fahrenheit feeding clods of frozen fucking dirt through a dirt grinding machine for $8.00 a fucking hour.

Do you think I'm making that shit up?

Well, I'll tell ya what then, bro; fuck you too.

I agree about quinoa and tofu. They are both tasteless. You have to soak them in something tasty, then they taste like that. Quinoa is good in soup, adds texture, and as Monkey says, protein. It's too hot to cook here so I made a summer supper soup in my crockpot today (crockpot=hippie thing) with leeks, cauliflower rice, spinach, and a whole head of garlic.

Monkey, Nixon was a birthright Quaker. Quakers are big time pacifists. Something must have happened to get him off into the weeds.

We eat quinoa here about twice a week, and we ain't no damn hippies. Quinoa is exactly like potatoes, rice, pasta, yucca, cassava or any other vat- based source of carbs except that it also provides protein in its own right as well as serving as a great medium through which to transmit flavors based on garlic, cumin and dead pig. What could possibly be bad about that unless you're a goddam good for nothing mayo-ite ?

Hawaii by far leads the Nation in tofu consumption. So much so that a few years back, when some bad research implicated the soy product with memory loss and early senility there was actually a very measurable economic backlash which took some time to correct. I kept eating it the whole time- pretty much explains everything.

A great place for tofu in the Bay? Brother's on Geary. You will NOT be disappointed, though the lines get pretty long in prime time.

Shit, Maui, we need to meet somewhere sometime soon for a latte or a beer or an intra-ocular shot of ketamine. You're the only OSer I know who is willing to admit they live in the same city I do!

Like I said, I am damn proud of you for strolling anywhere near the Deep East and even just there on the cusp gives one that inimitable feeling of the element. I'm heading back to Maui though, and for those who think that is strange or difficult to pull off or something, for some reason I get that sometimes here, well, Hawaiian flies direct from Oakland to Kahului and you can usually wrangle a ticket out of them for 200 or less with a little patience.

I like tofu. Not love. Its not tasty. Its not not tasty. Its one of those foods you can use as healthy filler. I will not eat edamamis! out of the question.

Even sauced and boiled/steamed Quinoa maintains a strange crisp - delivering the taste and feel of cooked birdseed and I resent the push and pull in my mouth.  I make badass sauces but quinoa of any color - and we have a variety in hopes of finding The One thats tasty and doesn't lodge in your teeth - quinoa resists all efforts to behave like a properly civilized side/starch.

Maui... I am disappointed. Bro... wtf man? I am from Wyandotte motherfucking County. That is in Kansas. I was born in Bethany Hospital, which is now a giant hole in the ground just north of Central Avenue. Right near there is an area called Quindaro. I own a house immediately adjacent to Quindaro RIGHT NOW. Quindaro is one of the very worst ghettoes there is in North America. First responders to calls from Quindaro won't even go in there without a motherfucking police escort. I have been to the Sems.  I have photos of that. Where are you at bro?

Seriously, I have seen no ghettos here in Oakland which are worse than the ones in WyCo. The food here is slightly better, but it's hard to find good bbq
