stop insulting people i like
as a seal of approval on your friends
any tips for reading stupid amounts of books quickly?
*without* offering me speed,you drug dealing scum
or fiction books? and what are you reading them for? i need some context here!
for a coming exam
party systems and voting systems
still a few days mind
(and it's probably a bit more textbooky tbh), what i used to do was kind of quickly skim-read first time through, looking for paragraphs and passages which'll relate to what you need to learn/revise and noting those down. this'll do at first, but it'll also give you an idea of which books seem the most useful so you can attack them in more depth. but yeah, basically, skim as many as possible first, noting the ones that seem useful and what they seem useful on, but make sure you leave enough time to go back through them in detail
hope that helps
using a finger as a guide primary school style you can speed up your reading considerably your eyes can pretty much keep up whatever speed, the proper way is to teach yourself how to read the words around each word with out having to scan your eyes across, then taking in whole sentences at once, then doing the same vertically so you can take in more than one sentence until you can take in a whole page in three chunks, I gave up in the end it made reading unenjoyable
thats exactly the type of shit i had in mind
hardly gonna enjoy political systems anyway,heh?
is apparently not an insult in mart's book. again, it's lucky that he's gone for "loner" as a lifestyle choice
and don't bring fringes into this
especially not on the internetz (this is meant tto be a good thing)
except as a mark of utter taste and greatness neither of which you posses
i like it
your just a loner with nothing better to do than insult other people for being better than you
just fuck off now
is the best song ever.
it did have punctuation. It had a ' and a . .
some things are best left as they are.
Then you can be friends forever.
Start with the hot pan/oil combo again, but not stir fry hot. Try to brown the mince, don't turn it grey through steam. If cheap supermarket mince it might have a lot of water in which if you throw it all in a saucepan will steam it turning it grey. Cook in a frying pan and don't stir too much. Try crumbling a OXO cube on for extra meatyness.
might be best to do in two/three lots on the flat bottom of the wok. Depends how much mince you've got, if this much: http://tinyurl.com/5q3yjl
fry the onions (and a bit of bacon for extra yum) in a seperate pan so you dont burn them, then add when ready to add the tomatoes
it's worth it, because the non lean stuff just cooks down to nothing, as all the fat frys out. You get about 1/3 more mince with lean mince, when it's cooked.
add red wine and balsamic vinegar to it before you add the tomatoes. Use some fresh basil to garnish it at the end as well. And a bit of streaky bacon cooked in is ace. I also sometimes add a bit of flour to thicken if the sauce is watery. And a teaspoon of red pesto is a good 'flavour' cheat.
just a small glassful.
he's a student and the only cooking pan he's got is a wok. And it's his first ever time cooking spag bol. Best to learn the basics and build on that. He's trying to impress Athene just yet.
NOT trying to impress Athene just yet
or balsamic in and my bolognaises are stomach burstingly delicious, do they really add something?
may try next time....
dont add flour to thicken, add tomato puree and cook for about an hour (to get the meat really good and tender)
DONT FORGET THE GARLIC!
and the vinegar adds a bit of tang. I always like to add a good splosh of lea and perrins too, mmmm
hendersons> lea and perrins though.
they perform they same function, why double up? I use balsamic a fair bit, so I have that in my cupboards. Others might not, but might have lea and perrins. Simple.
too much garlic ruins bolognaise. One small clove is all ya need. And tomato puree is a bit shitty and processed, and I dunno, not the kinda thing I have in my cupboard as it runs out so quick.
if you're using the cheap value tomatoes, add a spoonful of sugar when you put them in. not too much though, add a little, then taste and add more if necessary.
chopped nicely, and one small one thrown in peel and all, for one lucky customer
That's a lot of garlic.
its got garlic in it too!
marts having these two conversations simultaniously
or giving the most attention?
it's ok though, we can't see you.
if you could choose to have either:
a)a nightmare which would cause you to piss your bed upon waking and for the rest of the day, or
b)a dream which caused you to change your entire outlook on life, which ultimately may not be the best choice for HUMANITY in the long run
which would you choose? people keep choosing the second and i don't quite get it.
(i'd send this in a pm but this thread is probably one which could've been pmed anywayz)
sod humanity, I can't be bothered to wash these sheets AGAIN.
in your bed
you so bad
I save my ire for those that deserve it most, clipboarding weilding charity sales people.
it's not a searchable database and I can't be arse trawlling through it all. Not that I've given it much thought mind.
and stops me in the street in the vain attempt to sell me charity for £15 a month.
is like being called a drunk by oliver reed
you seem to be getting a little riled there. you ok?
and yet you are really really calm in your name calling or:
but if your smirking is a sign that you're getting a bit tetchy, maybe you should get up, head to the toilet to splash some water on your face, or maybe just go to the kitchen to get a glass of water, just take ten minutes away from the computer and come back to it, it's ok, i'm sure you won't really miss much
you're finding it hard to form emotional attachments to anything? cause i don't think i can really help you through that, i dunno if anyone else can here
and more importantly, about what we can do to help you
do you like to plan these things, pigfoot. make notes and reherse your lines of posting and conversation. hey, it's okay.
i think the one where he called me an anus right at the top of the thread when i was giving doodthatkicksarse advice about learning stuff for exams was a better one
they might not have realised otherwise
but if that's what you want to do, i can't really stop you
i feel settled now.
so it is good that he's clarified it for us all on this occasion. maybe he could do so more often?
amirite? i'm right, aren't i?
I'm imagining this exchange of words is being spoken by a group of well spoken English gentlemen. It's funny.
No-one has any ultrajuice on the other, and so it tends to stick to "I know you are, but what am I?" sorts of grounds.
I'd like to take them both on, but I'm a Pigfan.
Possibly the most childish thing I've seen on DiS in a long time.
Why can't we all just get along?!
Athene can lead the faces.
I'll be Shane O Mac, dancing and signing the paperwork.
