    I wish I had known about National Brisket Day in advance. I live in Dallas and feel like I really ought to celebrate the holiday, but I’ve got too many leftovers to justify going out for brisket.

    I’m tempted to go investigate this squirrel.

      Do it! Gerbils deserve to know more.

        Okay, now for a list of cheeses to determine if it’s a cheese snob.

          If it’s eating cheetos, then I think the answer is “no”.

            Have you ever been to the park? I only work in downtown and don’t spend much time in the city otherwise.

            Discovery Park? The squirrel will be eaten by a cougar or stab itself with a heroin needle by the time you get there.

    [quote<]Rotten Tomatoes tackles review bombing by requiring users to verify ticket purchase before rating a film @ Slashdot[/quote<] They require people to buy their tickets through Fandango--who just happens to own Rotten Tomatoes. How convenient. Talk about pay-to-play.

      Now you’re getting it

    Chex Quest, now that’s a blast from the past. Since it was nothing more than a TC mod for Doom you could just copy over serial/modem and IPX launchers and have multiplayer.

      I’d honestly never heard of it, but the video history was pretty cool. It reminded me a bit of [i<]Nerf Area Blast's[/i<] spin on the first Unreal engine.

    [quote<]Which number is the brisket? Don't cheat.[/quote<] I'd say 6! Disclaimer: I used wordreference.com to translate brisket into italian...

      I do not know the answer but I decided it must be 6 because I recall that Scottish Pipers have something they hang in front and call it a brisket.

        [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cut_of_beef<]Here's the spoiler for y'all.[/url<] BBQ Brisket is fine, but I think I prefer a good, smoked pork butt.

          I LIKE PORK BUTT AND I CANNOT LIE!

            THIS OTHER BRO CANNOT DENY

          • just brew it!

          Yesterday I learned that pork butt is also delicious sliced, marinated in ginger and oyster sauce, pan-fried, and tossed with Szechuan-style spices. The family absolutely loved it.

            I’m not sure I’ve ever had oyster sauce, but everything else you’re describing sounds amazing.

            If you’ve had Woorcestermeshifyzingseltzer sauce, you’ve had oyster sauce.

        “Punta di petto”, that translates literally to “breast tip”, more or less 🙂
