Re: General Election 2019

What school is Badiou? I've always ignored him as a Zizek-type philosophiser. Is the book any good? The title sounds puzzling. Continental, post-Marxist, with strong grounding in math, logic, and Platonism. Or post-Platonism if you like. He’s part of the Generation that was influenced by May ‘68 ev...

Re: General Election 2019

Popular impression, as you know, is oversimplified. It has many variations and interpretations.  

Indeed Reed is strong on the counterculture, even today, I would expect.

Re: General Election 2019

I am trying to get serious work done today, but this really made me laugh. :D Did you know that towards the end of Paul's FAQs in Quantitative Finance book, he has a section for  "The Most Popular Search Words and Phrases on Wilmott.com" ? I think this h- word, though introduced late in the game, wi...

Re: Need Help: Vegetarian Recipes

Wow - nice! That's from Iceland?
Yes, this one really caught me. : )

Iceland is only five hours from here (+1) - an easy hop and no need to go any further than that. 

Just drive north.

Re: Need Help: Vegetarian Recipes

Yes, I noticed that news about the skis. Here, Johnson and Johnson has just pulled many thousands of bottles of baby powder off the shelves of some stores (I think 23,000 bottles). And this is *after* lawsuits already decided against the firm.   But as you were posting about that, I was selecting th...

Re: Need Help: Vegetarian Recipes

Long ago, second kyu in karate and 6 years in a Ukrainian torture chamber disguised as a ballet school (until they kicked me out for growing boobs, which resulted in anorexia, withdrawal and depression - oh, poor poor me! Seriously, that was a valuable life's lesson). Now, I have a personal trainer...

Re: Need Help: Vegetarian Recipes

You Americans always have to be so thorough about everything. Almost competitive. Why improve? Be someone's damsel in distress to save! I'm feeble and clumsy, and every man feels like Superman around me. Just an idea for your dinner and breakfast experiments. Had a nice laugh over this - thanks! : ...

Re: Need Help: Vegetarian Recipes

I like to mash rutabagas. I never got used to the midwestern habit of referring to them as Swedes, but I obviously get the similarities. Great - I found some recipes for glazing them too - a little brown sugar won't do any harm. The ones at the farm stand were locally grown and looked good. Enjoy N...

Re: Need Help: Vegetarian Recipes

Parsnips mixed with turnips!
good idea. have you ever eaten rutabagas?  maybe "neeps" for those in the UK?

But please do not call them "swedes".

If I told my sister I was having some swedes for dinner, she would ask me why one wasn't enough. : D
