Have you tried it yet? If so, was it worth it?

Actually, you're right about the girls. This is getting strange.

I've said this to my wife and god how I hope I'm wrong. Considering how much the GOP projects their own issues as Democrats doing them. It occurred to me, what if PizzaGate is in the same category and this situation is the setup to allow that to happen.


Found out last week that I was going to get to Cisco Live, which includes a complementary cert exam. With 4 days to prep, I decided to go for the CCDP exam. I've speed read the ARCH Foundation Learning book to go with my CCIE lab prep knowledge.

Wish me luck everyone! If I pass, I'll follow up by taking the CCDA exam to actually get the title and become a triple Professional cert holder.

EDIT: I passed with a 945! Super excited. Now I get to focus on my CCIE lab exam to earn two new titles

The fact you decided 4 days before that you were going to do a complementary exam, and you were able to, is amazing.

They had "run out" long before then last year. Surprisingly they hadn't run out of half price exams. Hmmm....

Also how does the CCIE lab get you two new titles? Or are you saying IE lab instead of CCDA?

Since I haven't taken the CCDA exam, but have passed arch, route, and switch exams, having your CCIE can count in place of the CCDA.

Yah, I'm aware of that, but you originally said

I'll follow up by taking the CCDA exam

My bad, that was my original plan before I realized that the CCIE could count towards that requirement

Edible sugar lace recipe

Boiling hot water 70ml

CMC 3gm

Glucose syrup ½ tsp

Corn flour 6gm

Icing sugar 7gm

Meringue powder ¼ tsp

Glycerin ½ tsp

Directions [ here's a quick video to explain the process ]

Add CMC to the hot boiling water { it’s going to be very lumpy } and mix thoroughly.

Add glucose syrup and mix.

Then add the dry ingredients and mix them in.

Lastly add the glycerin and continue to mix until no lump can be felt.

The mixture will be thick (almost jelly like in some instances).

Tip: If it feels too thick add hot water one tablespoon at a time and if it's too light add cornflour a tablespoon at a time.

Add your color of choice and mix it in.

Lightly dust the lace mat with corn flour.

using a spatula, apply the sugar lace over the mat and remove any excess.

Place the mat in an oven at 110° for 10 minutes { or until the sugar lace feels firm to the touch } and keep the oven door slightly open to dry the sugar lace.

With practice you will know to remove the lace mat at the correct time. Too early and the lace will be stretchy and loose and if over baked, it will become brittle. Allow the lace to cool and spread another second layer of sugar lace. Return it to the oven to dry. Once the lace is firm, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool.

Tip: If the lace mat feels stiff, place a slightly damp cloth over the mat for 30 seconds to unstiffen the sugar lace.

Fold one corner of the lace mat and slowly peel the sugar lace from the mat.

Ladders, they are deadly. I've met so many people who've fallen off some kind of ladder and hurt themselves badly. The worst are usually men in their 70's cleaning gutters, putting up clocks or generally doing some kind of maintenance. Ban all the ladders

This is what I've been saying for years! Ladders are more dangerous than guns, which is why I own a dozen guns, in case some MANIC trys to bring a ladder in our house.

I always wondered how that went... why coffee?

A huge burger with two giant donuts as buns. To be honest it wasn’t that bad, but that feeling of pure diabetus prevented me from getting another (or even finishing the one I had).

edit: To those of you asking, it was at a music festival in CA. It was about twice the size of an In-n-Out burger with Krispy Kreme donuts.

see more

I've made a burger with a single doughnut that was split and the cut side was grilled. The combo of crispy, soft, sweet, and savory all in one bite was mind blowingly good. I recognize that the single doughnut is fewer calories than a large side of fries, but still, it feels wrong to eat it in the most hedonistic way possible

Michael Cohen, Presidents lawyer, found dead in apparent suicide

This is really embarrassing.

If the dudes who've pursued me and the dudes I've dated are any indication, they think I want them to be smarter than I am. Nope. I want someone I can talk to. I don't want to feel inferior. If we can hold a conversation and teach each other new things, that's what I'm after. I don't want you to fake intelligence in order to condescend to me. Be interested and interesting.

That's one of the many many reasons why my wife and I work out as well as we do. We both have depth of knowledge in differing areas and we are both intrigued by the others fields. I'm into technology and her the science of food. We both learn all sorts of advanced things from the other, better ourselves in the process and have a great time bonding over our passions.

This just reminds me of the fact that the song "Ironic" by Alanis Morissette contains no lyrics which give examples of irony, making the song itself ironic.

What's more amazing is that she agreed to be a part of the song Semi-colon with Lonely Island, knowing full well that the entire song is examples of colons

That looks delicious but Taiwan ≠ Thailand!

Mittimers husband here. I picked out the recipe not thinking. In my mind, the Thai seemed like the abbreviation was appropriate for the theme.

I want to make a cake in her ass.

First I'd give her a non daily milk enema to clean out her fartbox. Then I'd add the ingredients and mix them up in her ass, using my dong to stir them. After doing a few squats, she will fart out the cake mix into a pan and bake it.

We will bake the cake and put icing on it, then she will sit on the cake and blast it to bits with her butthorn.

Everything will have come full circle, the cake will have been both created and destroyed by her asshole. Her ass is the beginning and the end, the alpha and omega.

Wing recipe: These were tasty, but not as crispy as I had hoped.

Ranch recipe: This was to die for. I want to dip everything in this from now on!

We've made an amazing ranch recipe using garlic powder, onion powder, and fresh dill.

No - it just has to be at least 51% corn, distilled in the US, and aged in new oak charred barrels. It can be made anywhere in the US - but about 90% comes from Kentucky anyway.

see more

Actually, it may be way less with a lot more made in Indiana, via MGP ingredients, which is the largest distiller in the country. If you see a small brand named bourbon or whiskey that is labelled as "distilled in Indiana", chances are, its MGPi.

Also, anyone who sources from MGPi must disclose on the label the state of distillation by law. The TTB is very particular about small details like that

how does the baking powder factor in?

see more

It modifies the ph of the exterior, which, when baked, results in a crispy skin without having to fry the wings

Evan William's 1783 is amazing especially for the $13 that we can get it for

THIS. The maple flavor is incredible in an old fashioned. I pretty much only use maple syrup for all of my old fashioneds now

Agreed 100% but make sure you are using actual maple syrup, not "original pancake syrup"

Do you use grade A or B?

If you can find it, grade B amber Canadian maple

You should try EW 1783, it's cheaper than black, but so much better IMO

Any specific shops that you would recommend in that area? I'm going to be in the general atlanta region next week.

He went to the back of the school, which had a side road next to it and shot himself in the arm and several shots into the adjacent wall. Claimed it was a drive-by shooting. Whole school was put on lock-down. Investigators were able to prove the gunshot wound was self inflicted and we didn't see him again after that.

Fiber-cut by cow. A farmer was driving and hit a cow. He felt so bad about doing it, so he tried to bury the cow. When he was digging the grave, he cut the fiber.
