BAGELS! (more or less from here)

I'm sick and tired of trying (and failing) to remember what amazing modifications I made to the recipe last time, so I'm going to stick my version in a more or less convenient place.

1. Mix 1.5 cups of flour, .5 tablespoon salt (1.5 teaspoon), 1.5 tablespoon sugar (4.5 teaspoon), 1 package yeast in a nice big bowl.

2. Add 3/4 cup hot water (any temperature seems to be fine), go light. Mix. Add another 1/4 cup flour. Mix.

3. Knead. Approaching 15 mins by an unskilled kneader seems good.

4. Rise for 1.5-2 hrs.

5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put water and some sugar in medium pot over medium-high heat.

6. Make bagels (5 produces nicely sized bagels, if a little flat). Let sit for about 10 minutes.

7. Bathe bagels for about 30 seconds per side. Place over nonstick spray.

8. Bake for 10 minutes, then flip. Bake for another 8-12 minutes.

Okay, I have a job. It's easy and pays well, and I can work whenever I like, from home.

The problem? It involves interpreting the handwriting of children. And when they get it wrong, I have to type out the correct answers in an attractive way, with ~tags~ and annoying shit like that.
 
I'm starting to wonder if my salary will even cover the massive amounts of painkillers I need for my poor head...

I despise year-end best 10/100/whatever lists. The decade-end lists are even worse! I'm not even going to start on the idiocy of best-of-decade lists due to the man-made artificiality of the decade. It would be ok if I agreed with a single one of these lists, but I never do.

I think the US winning the 4x100 freestyle swim relay at the Beijing Olympics was the best sporting moment of the decade. Now, some people are going to cry AMERICA BIAS!!!! Those Americans can't appreciate anyone that's not American!!! to which I will lol heartily. I happen to root against America every summer Olympics. Like, I am seriously basically a hater. I root for China kthx, which means I root against everyone else, but mostly America since they win the most medals and I like China to win the medals race, which is almost an Olympic sport to me. xD But even I cried when the US won that magical, magical race.

Also, to Time: Rio's selection as the 2016 Olympics host by a bunch of fat suits is not a sporting event. Nobody did any running or swimming or even swinging a golf club. This is in no way a top 10 sporting event of the decade. It doesn't even qualify as sporting event of the day. I understand that President Obama is very fit and very tall and plays golf at the White House, but just because he decided to (inappropriately imo) stick his nose in the Olympic selection doesn't make it a sporting event.

No, the new (or not-so-new, this is old news I guess) cancer screening guidelines are NOT the government/insurance companies trying to save money. There are actual legitimate reasons for the guideline revisions, and arguably the old guidelines should never have been implemented.

Some people don't seem to understand that mammograms / CATs / stuff can be dangerous and should not be randomly used just because you can. No, it is not "better safe than sorry". A mammogram is a X-ray. X-rays are radiation. I could get over this risk factor if it weren't for the fact that mammograms suck and don't even work well.

I HATE ANATOMY

The sella turcica is composed of, from anterior to posterior: the tuberculum sellae, the hypophyseal fossa (which contains the pituitary gland), the dorsum sellae, and the posterior clinoid process.

The sella turcica happens to be, max like a centimeter long. I am supposed to know all the bones and holes (don't ask) in the skull. .......This is either going to turn out surprisingly well or incredibly bad. I mean, there are supposedly 85 holes (don't believe this) and eight bones (also not true) in the skull, with their corresponding parts... I could luck out and only get things I remember, or I could uhh not luck out and get everything I skimmed. Knowing my luck, I will fail lol.

I HATE ANATOMY.

Why would ANYONE call a horse named Zenyatta, which is one of the coolest names ever, by either of her two ridiculous nicknames: "The Big Z" and "the Zen Master"?

Why.

Why.

Some people.... have no taste.

Every year I watch the Kentucky Derby, and try to get excited about racing... Usually I am bored to death, but this year I am so excited~!

A lot of horses are interesting, and, you know, good. Also pretty much every owner of an important horse this year is a douche, which is great. I'm not even being sarcastic, it's really funny. (Unless they're hurting the horses, it's hilarious to watch them go at each other.)

That said, dear Zenyatta's owners: you guys are retarded.

 

lollerskatesCollapse )



I'm laughing at them because it's funny to watch them fail at life, but the stupid makes my head hurt...

That said - Zenyatta is the coolest name ever~ :3

I hate it when people's hair magically changes length during music videos. I mean... is there any real reason you decided to do that?
