Yep, but it's here and it's here to stay. The only thing we need to do now is work out how to live with it.

Recipes / Re: An easy-to-make recipe

Quote from: daniel1948 on February 24, 2024, 05:03:50 PMThe fact that you just dump all the food into one container and nuke it suggests to me that you're not particular about food preparation. You just want it to be easy to make, and easy to clean up afterwards.

To be clear, there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. For some people, food preparation is a pleasure, a pastime to be indulged and enjoyed whenever possible. For others, it's an annoying delay to the necessary function of getting nutritional calories in one's gullet. It's okay either way.

Personally, I'm a little bit of both.

Stop the bickering. Don't make me turn this forum around.

I didn't realise that was a setting that people could change for themselves.  :huh:

ETA: I don't have that ticked. But I'm a moderator, which probably overrides it. Is it off by default? That may be a problem.

I probably did something wrong because I'm new at this. I don't appreciate malicious motives being ascribed to me. I'm looking into it.

ETA: The board has default permissions. You should see it as a sub-board under Health, Fitness, Nutrition, and Medicine.

Quote from: bachfiend on February 22, 2024, 07:15:43 PMI notice a thread has disappeared from this subforum.  Is this a new policy of the moderators to make threads disappear instead of just closing them?
They're not disappeared, they've been moved to the Recipes subforum.

Please post recipes there.

Quote from: random poet on February 21, 2024, 07:41:08 PMYeah the other fascists in Canada are also up in arms about their made-up strawman version of this.

You are in great company, Quetz. Just keep sliding on down the right-wing insanity pipeline.

I am not Canadian. Neither is Mark Crislip, Steven Novella, or David Gorski. Try again.

Also, from the article about Canada in the OP:

QuoteKnowledge Holders who know how the lake behaves and the characteristics of the lake. In the Indigenous worldview the lake is a living entity. The Knowledge Holders are stewards of this lake.

Is this, in your view, a belief that is equally valid to the knowledge of "Western science" and should complement it?

You're comparing apples to chalk. Nobody is peer-reviewing the concept of the lake being a living entity. Nobody is publishing papers in Nature about it.

There is science, which is done in a very specific way, with methods, data and conclusions, and then there is indigenous cultural knowledge, which is not.

In this particular case, the indigenous methods of managing the lake may well be ecologically valid, and thus should be taken seriously. But nobody should mistake that as being science.

It really depends on how you define the difference between a living entity and an ecosystem. The lines are not that clear.

A lake is an ecosystem. Some ecosystems (like humans) are living entities. Some biologists and environmentalists see them the same way.

At any rate, there may be a reasonable analogy in viewing an ecosystem as a living entity. Cf. the Gaia Hypothesis.

Quote from: bachfiend on February 21, 2024, 06:23:45 PMSorry, I misread your recipe.  I know it's possible to buy separated eggs in shops, which is what I assumed you were doing.  So you're wasting food by discarding egg yolks?  Not particularly environmentally friendly.

There's always things you can use yolks for. And things that you can use whites for. You don't need to throw away half the egg.

Though, if you do, the environmental impact is pretty tiny. Negligible, I would say.
