What did you learn today?

(Bacon is the new bacon) #1380

Not deleted, but accidentally hidden from everyone. It will take Carl or Richard to go in and fix it, and right now they are working on other problems from the move to the new server.

(Jane) #1381

Yeah, not as much a priority as fixing the other bugs.

If it gets restored then perhaps this one can be merged with it so all our learnings are in one place.

No rush. I appreciate those working on the other bugs.

We’re gonna see how long you go before you POP! :slight_smile:

Today I learned what pedantic means.

That didn’t take long.

The lady doth protest too much, methinks :grin:

I believe her. She’s the expert on this subject.

(Boots on? Balls to the wall? Good start.) #1383

The lady & her lady are just fine thank you :roll_eyes::grinning:

(Eric - Less is more!) #1384

I learned that dreams can be metaphors for life. “There I was running to catch the train to the amusement park. Where is everyone? Why no lines? Oh no I missed the train!” You see earlier in my dream I had stopped at a buffet table and had to stuff my face with salty, crunchy potato chips.

Literally carbs take the fun out of life.

I also learned the blur is back. :+1:

What I learned yesterday: a 200 pound pig produces roughly 20 lbs of bacon.

(Awesome Cheerleader For All) #1386

That’s a good tagline, Eric!

(Empress of the Unexpected) #1387

I learned that cold bacon is even better that hot bacon!

(squirrel-kissing paper tamer) #1388

When I’m not too lazy to prep my 3 lbs of bacon ends and pieces on the weekends I take a baggie of bacon to work for lunch and eat it cold and I thoroughly enjoy it.


It’s because the fat solidifies in the fridge, it’s amazing.

Today I learned that my favourite kind of olives come with a blend of olive oil and rapeseed oil…and that I’m not happy about that! Kinda annoyed at myself for not looking at the label before. I shall be buying olives in brine until I find a trustworthy source that doesn’t mix nasty oils in with my lovely olives!!!

I’ve had to hold back on a couple of things I’ve seen on Facebook…can’t be bothered to comment! :joy:

(Ketopia Court Jester) #1392

I doubt it, but a lot of them talk from out of theirs. Crotchbook.

(Diane) #1393

I learned out it’s easy to pasteurize eggs by sous vide.

(Heather Meyer) #1394

What is the difference between…

RAPEseed oil? and GRAPEseed oil???

We have GRAPEseed oil in our store but we dont have the other one?? I hear rumors that RAPEseed oil is bad for you? So is GRAPEseed oil bad to use too???

(Heather Meyer) #1395


I wish i had a sou vide just for that purpose…would make ice cream making faster i should think.

(Janelle) #1396

You probably do. Rapeseed is basically Canola oil.

Grape seed oil

(Bacon is the new bacon) #1397

Rapeseed oil is canola oil, or rather canola (Canada oil, low-acid) is made from a variety of rapeseed.

No seed oil is a good idea. Nina Teicholz has a lecture on YouTube in which she describes the steps through which seed oils have to pass in order to be shelf-stable and palatable. Stick to olive, coconut, and avocado oils, or switch to butter, tallow, lard, and bacon grease!

(Ketopia Court Jester) #1398

Oregon farmers maintain huge fields of rapeseed for oil production. Pretty to look at, but let’s leave it at that.

(squirrel-kissing paper tamer) #1399

I recall learning about rapeseed oil years ago and that it’s a great crop because pests won’t touch it because it’s nasty and also that the oil is used in machines as lube. I quit canola oil after that and never looked back.
