Responsibility

I can't stand looking at the Special Diets board because of all the medical advice asked for and given there. The worst offenders are those who "have had the exactly the same condition," "throughly researched" it, and consider themselves experts not only on diet but medication as well. I only hope that someone doesn't make a bad situation worse by taking advice that may not be as good as it sounds.

Banquet dinner options--how to choose what to eat?

I think I would just pick one and be sure to wear my big girl pants to dinner. Everyone involved with the wedding probably has a million other things to deal with without guests who must be sure the menu is to their liking. If you truly find the meal inedible you can always eat a roll and butter while being the epitome of graciousness while you butter the roll. The wedding truly is about the bride and groom, and they have done more than their part by offering 3 choices for guests to choose from.

Obama cuts the line at Franklin BBQ in Austin

It's actually fairly restrained compared to how it started out. Many of the original replies are gone.

Banned

Some "go away" for a while and then are allowed back.

Obama cuts the line at Franklin BBQ in Austin

From what I've read about Royal visits, the Queen wouldn't be picking up anybody's tab at the head of the line.

I dunno, maybe when they are elected President? There are limits to egalitarianism, maybe this is it.

Hilarious Menu Parody of Guy Ferry's Dreadful Times Sq Restaurant

The parody menu has been online since February, which indicates to me that it's not much more than a blip on the Fieri radar.

Does the meal have to be amazing?

What does "amazing" even mean? It has been overused to describe everything to the point it's nonsense.

Where you land from My Discussions

Nope, the "last reply" feature does not work on my iPhone either. You are not alone in this suckitude.

Moderator guidelines?

Nope. IMO the moderation here is the only thing that separates Chowhound from the anonymous and unpleasant cesspool that forms the rest of the internet. This is not a democracy but everyone is free to go elsewhere, to let the diamonds and rubies that fall from their lips land where they may.

Food Quests, Again...

Then, those who think it is stupid, myself included, should stay off it and not manipulate the content. Let it go down on its own. Presumably if CHOW wanted help or opinions they would ask for them.

Take Roe. The Gregory route is in an area of town many consider to be unsafe.

Anyone else enjoying Create TV?

Direct TV Pacific Time Zone does not carry Create. One over the air station that carries it in LA is KLCS CH 58.

Make These Delicious Fried Egg Tacos

Not knowing a taco from a toastada , what a joke.
------------------------------------------------------------------

So is spelling the word "tostada" incorrectly in your case.

Hover over avatars - no longer enlarges

Let's see, you originally posted on Thursday, so that means in theory if anyone in tech even read your post on that day, they probably didn't open a ticket until Friday, which means the first time anyone would even think of addressing the issue would be Monday or even Tuesday depending how many other items related to the latest push are ahead of it. So, not today. Not tomorrow. Maybe the next day. See you next week.

People will never stop this kind of behavior. You either stand up for yourself in these situations or not.

Everything's in circles now. What's THAT about?

Yay, something to complain and bicker about just in time for the weekend. I'm hoping for lots of capital letters and exclamation points.

So annoyed with dinner guest

Of course it is for validation. No one here really believes a poster doesn't how to handle a friend or family member who acts like a pantload, or doesn't know what to eat because they had their wisdom teeth out, or what dish would make them feel better because they just got dumped, or whether canned tomatoes have more salt than fresh ones because they just got diagnosed with kidney disease. People make posts like those here because they will want commiseration and there is always someone who will join in. Neither good or bad, just is.

More IPad troubles.

Do you have "block pop ups" turned on in Safari?

Would you buy it?

I wouldn't worry about safety as much as just wasting money on a nasty little plastic-sealed piece of injected nothing. These "rib eyes," as well as bacon-wrapped "filet mignons," go on sale at all kinds of places around here and they are universally not good. I just feel sorry for folks without much money who think they are really getting something with these.

Gluten Free Deep frying

Some people think the carbonated water makes the batter lighter, but many recipes use just plain water. It looks to me like the only ingredient in your recipe that would have a chemical taste would be the baking soda...you only want to use a quarter teaspoon or so.

Name for/where to buy individual metal muffin tins

They look like egg poacher cups to me - they may have fit inside an insert at one time.

Using Tin Foil and Plastic Wrap

Odd Question of the Day

www.fodors.com/community
Their forums contain questions that are asked over and over again, a core group of people that bawls the questioners out for it, longtime posters who find themselves extremely amusing, and know-it-alls who reply to every question whether or not they know the answer. It's just like Chowhound without the food.
