The best steaks are made on Cast Iron pans.

Cast Iron pans require more maintenance, but they hold more heat, which makes for a better sear in my experience.


The smell of durian makes me gag violently. I can’t comprehend how people eat that stuff

just brew it!

Some people feel the same way about well-aged kimchi. But the stuff is delicious!


drfish, on behalf of all the steakholders here, we appreciate your work. It’s a meaty contribution from a seasoned veteran. Aside from a few beefs, we really enjoy your work.

[You can really tell when the caffeine kicks in!]


how does a pizza get delivered vertically? via dumbwaiter? drone? dropped from a cliff? asking for a friend.

I’ve never had durian. I did try some durian candy a few months ago, and it was… interesting. Kind of in the same way that Malort is interesting. As in, “that wasn’t terrible, but if I never have that again for the rest of my life I think I’d be OK with that”.
