    Oh, no...no, no, no... :lol: I'm so sorry!


    I know you didn't mean me! I meant "I heard that" as in "I heard that...I totally agree. Adults can be such huge jerks, too!"

    I'm sorry I didn't make the context of my reply clearer. No, I knew what you meant. You're cool! (*Blows kiss*) :techman:

    ^:lol: Goddamn message boards. It seems lately I am either misinterpreting everything I read here or someone else is misinterpreting everything I write!

    Don't worry, my dear. And I've been there before...trust me. After eleven years on these boards I've been misinterpreted more often than I care to recall.

    I knew what you meant, but I pictured a sassy black lady saying it.

    TIL... that the "incredible edible egg" is widely misunderstood. The general idea I see presented most of the time is that the yolk is not good for you due to all the cholesterol within it and that the egg white is best.

    Well, it's really the opposite. There is good cholesterol and "conditional" cholesterol. There's no "bad" cholesterol, only TOO MUCH OF IT makes it bad. And the yolk contains a lot of other nutrition too. It's best to have an egg under cooked rather than over cooked. With hard boiled eggs, it's not as nutritious if completely cooked through, but it's still good to eat. Chickens from low stress environments tend to have a closer ratio of Omega 6's and 3's, whereas massive caged hen production results in much more Omega 6 to 3, which isn't desirable. You can find out more on the Cholesterol and Health website.

    For myself, I prefer to have eggs over easy if I'm cooking them in a pan. If boiled, I prefer soft to medium, where the yolk is just starting to firm up, still gooey. It still has its orange color. If it becomes bright pale yellow, it is cooked too much. The flavor tells all.

    Anyway... just a little tidbit for any of you out there who has cut back on eggs due to fear of cholesterol.

    That's making the assumption that all eggs are contaminated. If you buy from an untrustworthy source then yes--I'd cook thoroughly. But if you trust your source, you shouldn't have to be paranoid about salmonella.

    I had to take a Food Safety class for my current job. It made me paranoid about everything. :lol:

    Not much in this world is as disgusting as an undercooked egg, in my opinion. I want practically all the moisture boiled, fried, or scrambled out of my egg before it touches my plate!

    The only reason I like eggs is that I need them to bake a cake.

    TIL that some people actually care about what an athlete's hair looks like. I have no idea WHY they care, but they do, for some strange reason.

    I don't really care, but there's a dude in the Olympics -- volleyball, maybe? -- that has an epic unibrow. I'm sorry, but if I was going to be on TV all around the world, I would wax that shit. :lol:

    I'm shocked that a lady of such good taste normally can be so dreadfully wrong. :D

    • Omelettes should be nicely baveuse.
    • Fried eggs must have a runny yolk to cut open.
    • Boiled eggs need to be soft to dip your soldiers into.
    • Eggs Benedict demand a soft poached egg.
    • Scrambled eggs need to be squidgedly creamy.
    These are the Five Egg Commandments! All that the Lord of Eggs hath said will you do, and be obedient. :p
