Though the 'low' part bugs me...

Just take out the "w" in MS Paint.

I love it when my hands are talking to themselves. 

Wait, we're Justin too?

He's one of my puppets, like you.  I have many puppets. 

You're a promiscuous puppeteer.

Hush, before I throw you in the laundry.

Random fact:

I have and have had since childhood, through multiple moves to other states and countries, an actual sock puppet in my sock drawer.  He is a black sock with bright red hair.

He hangs out there and rules the land of the socks.  If he is not in there, I tend to get agitated and worried.

All opinions expressed by myself are quite tragically my own, and not those of any other poster or wall hangings.

So I went to a restaurant today that styles itself as an American restaurant. In here it means that the food consists of various kinds of burgers and french fries. It's kind of weid that despite the fact that nowadays people would like to think of themselves as tolerant, international and curious we still tend to think through stereotypes like this. If a fine dining restaurant advertised itself as an American restaurant people probably wouldn't have any idea about what they're offering.

BBQ tends to be a more southern thing. Burgers and fries are staples across the country. The fine dining restaurants here usually advertise themselves as French.  :D

Interesting point. I supposed there isn't much of a fully developed "American" cuisine, as there is several regional cuisines. But the same could be said of many other allegedly national cuisines: they often represent only particular regions or particular styles.

In our area, PA Dutch (German) cuisine is popular. I could live on pork sausage, saurkraut and mashed potatoes.

We call it PA Dutch because apparently we don't know the difference between the Dutch and Germans.  :laugh:

Well it's more because the German word for German is "Deutsch" (or "daitsch" in the PA Dutch dialect), and that sounds a lot more like "Dutch" than "German" so the PA Dutch's name for themselves got anglicized as Dutch.

Our Italians restaurants do not offer meatballs but rather pizza and pasta. Could be due to the fact that meatballs are part of regular Finnish cuisine.

Because the Dutch were closer to England than the Germans. You probably know the Germanic etymology of the word Dutch/Deutsch - i.e. the common/vulgar tongue in contrast to Latin. Up until the 17th century Dutch was called Duitsch, or more commonly Nederduitsch.

You obviously haven't had a proper rye bread. I live in Southern Finland and even here it's somewhat hard to come by with a proper bread. Just as the Sun of Righteousness rises from the East, as is the proper bread baked by Holy Orthodox matushkas in the East.

This bread is dark, sour in taste, dense, heavy and comparatively dryish.

Now, here is the true test. Notice the lack of rye. Herein is proof that Rye is an inferior bread.

Was Trisagion thinking of American caraway-flavored "Jewish rye" when he said that? Or of the dense, sour Scandinavian rye?

Once my mom, an American who married a Dane, was serving a Danish lunch to an American guest, including a glass of Danish caraway-flavored aquavit. The guest remarked that the spirit tasted "like rye", thinking, I suppose, that it was the rye grain that provided the distinctive flavor in the rye bread he was familiar with.

Yeah, I lolled to the description too. Then again it's kind of apt. We are called to ascesis. It also reminds me of some Metal bands. Maybe that's why have so many Metal bands. Can't make any lighthearted music while eating bread like that.

That doesn't sound like the description of deliciousness to me!

Quote
This bread is dark, sour in taste, dense, heavy and comparatively dryish.

Yeah, I lolled to the description too. Then again it's kind of apt. We are called to ascesis. It also reminds me of some Metal bands. Maybe that's why have so many Metal bands. Can't make any lighthearted music while eating bread like that.

Now, here is the true test. Notice the lack of rye. Herein is proof that Rye is an inferior bread.

Remote area of Greece;

Little known by the world;

Even those who know about it don't quite know what goes on in there;

Preserves an ancient lifestyle long forgotten for centuries;

Everything seems from the past;

It's inhabitted by people of only one sex.

Expectation:


Reality:
Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

If Fabio is as cool as I think he is, he is probably prevented by OCNet official rules from posting the real photos he had in mind. 
Please don't project meta-debates onto me.

I notice that the anthropological course "Evolutionary Theory" at the University of Pittsburgh has been given the section/catalog number 1611. I bet those godless atheist academic know-it-alls did that just to stick it to God-fearin Bible-believing KJV-usin folk!

Ugh! that has got to smell

The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.
