    You're mostly right actually, she was actually completely wrong in this case. Eg is correct. However they are interchangable a good portion of the time.
  • Ooookay. Seriously, if you guys can't handle the words Thurman is using, you should grab a thesaurus and learn something. Or read books that aren't chick lit.

    Now. Thurman. Let's have a chat, shall we?  I'm rather familiar with your particular brand of jackassery.  Frankly, you're nothing more than egotistical, overly-inflated windbag who enjoys the use of her 'intelligence' as a weapon.  Sure it's fun sometimes, but to make that your bread and butter?  I think you should start to branch out. What do you say you bring in some actual, controversial opinons? Chastising our behavior is already worn out.

    With that said, shall we converse on a different topic? How about abortion. That's always an interesting one around here.

    [QUOTE]Why do I feel like Thurman was the kid in school who "made friends" with the kids in the "slow" reading group just so she could feel superior and boss them around? Thurman, if you were half as smart as you seem to think you are, you really wouldn't need to spend days on end trying to prove what a genius you are to complete strangers on the internet.
    Posted by StephBeanWed61502[/QUOTE]

    There were no slow kids in my school. The funniest part is though, at NO POINT have i tried to prove anything. You guys just keep trying to prove than I'm not smart to nurse you're own egos. It's cute, and thanks for the entertainment until 5!

    So I've decided I need to meet J&K. Some how, some way. I'm also determined to make gf pasta. 

    ETA: LDY we should have a conversation in Latin sometime. I took it too, therefore I am fluent.

    No it makes you sound educated and awesome. I love it when people learn languages like Latin because it's not like your'e doing it for daily application.

    But when she's being "it means this in latin, duhhh" about it, she tries to make us non latin folks sounds stupid.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: FFF : You have to be a little more careful cooking it than regular pasta, but it's not that bad. If you overcook rice pasta, it tends to be super mushy. Corn pasta is a little harder to turn to mush, but it also is much easier to undercook.

    I actually thought I used "eg" and not "ie." I was super confused at how the hell you guys thought you had a foot in this arguement till I reread my post. My bad on that one.
  • It's only 3 on the East coast, isn't it?
  • Meg, I feel like wheat pasta takes nearly twice as long to cook as regular pasta (at least, to get to the same consistency).  It does get there, but it tries my patience (says the girl who only ate angel hair pasta for years because she couldn't be bothered to cook anything for more than 4 minutes).

  • I make rice pasta all of the time.  I always cook it until  a little al dente and by the time I rinse, etc. it's fine.  Corn pasta was awesomesauce until I saw the goo left behind one time.  That did it for me.  

    Also, Brandi, unless I'm not noticing your sarcasm font I think you completely missed what Eagles was saying.

    That's usually the best way to go.  There are a lot of people out there that beg for money for "food" but don't use it on food.

    That's funny! I never said I knew latin! Some people here didn't know "postulate" so I thought I'd cover my bases! Although, I was a national latin scholar in Highschool.

    Last part added because... well, why not? You're determined to be offended anyhow! =)
