    Wow that’s impressive! Chicken is the hardest to replicate. I love Beyond meats and most stores sell them. I’ve preferred it at times.

    Seitan is probably my favorite of the options out there. Least favorite being tofu, but it’s become its own category now. When I was a vegetarian back in the day everyone suggested it but it doesn’t taste like meat.

    Doyle on Andromeda makes me think of Android on Dark Matter, and also ADA in The Outer Worlds

    Nope, It has been said before. :)

    Mark Twain, one of the greatest American authors and humorists, had a way with words beyond his books and stories. He was also quite sharp with insults and opinions, especially regarding politics and religion.


    [SIZE=5] Congress and Politics [/SIZE]
    "Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself."


    “There is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress."


    "Fleas can be taught nearly anything that a Congressman can."


    "Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it."


    "An honest man in politics shines more there than he would elsewhere."


    "All Congresses and Parliaments have a kindly feeling for idiots, and a compassion for them, on account of personal experience and heredity."

    Yes, but none of those quotes reference the episode "Time's Arrow". :p

    Yeah, it honestly kinda freaked me out a little how close it was to real chicken, with most of the others there's always been something that wasn't quite perfect.
    I've really liked a lot of the Gardein stuff that I've had.

    There's a place here that does burgers that look just like a regular burger but they are all veggie, and really yummy.

    @TribbleFeeder you are going to hate me but I've been here so long and only just realized the little joke in the tag under your name.. I feel so silly now for not getting it earlier.

    No worries! It’s such a silly tagline, but I am completely fascinated by the Kardashians! I think Kim is so beautiful, but more importantly she is a hard worker, driven, and she doesn’t “party” like many other celebrities.

    Say what you must about her past, but she’s smarter than we give her credit for. It’s pretty amazing that she’s not only risen to fame without any talent—but also managed to maintain that celebrity status for 20 years and grown into a powerhouse in her own right.

    All hot dogs are not created equally. I get Ballpark Franks but they weren't on sale. I decided to try another brand that wasn't on sale either but the price was more or less the same. I can tell there's a difference and it's not even close.

    But, they plump when ya' cook 'em, maybe you need the right brand of sauerkraut and brown mustard. [​IMG] Chopped onions also seal the deal.

    Ever needed a locksmith? How do you decide which one to use? Neighbor got locked out of house without phone and asked if I could find a locksmith. Did a Google search, the nearest known neighborhood locksmith was closed so I just picked another one on the map. However, they weren't actually nearby despite what the map said. Did the job just fine, but I'm a bit weary of mobile locksmiths. But at the same time, just because a locksmith is brick and mortar doesn't make them better.

    Some of the feeling from one of the places I had some skin cancer removed is finally having the feeling return, although I feel it in a different place than where I touch it.
