PROSCIUTTO!!! Damn it!

I dunno what kind of prosciutto you've eaten, but in my experience, that stuff is always pink and damn near translucent. It looks to me like it's nothing but bacon on her, but either way...

My brain rebels against ... solid steel assault -thich aluminium handles !W!T!F!

Maybe what they mean is that the chain is solid steel while the handles are thick aluminium.
I like nunchucks. The problem most people have is that there's a sharp learning curve to them. You have to know what you're doing to be at all formidable.

I know, I kind of had the same reaction when I first read it. But regardless of the material, the construction looks a little more solid than your average pair of nunchucks.

In Canada , nunchucks are prohibited weapons.
Which means just having them on you can get you arrested.

I'm having a hard time finding laws about them here in the states, but in Kentucky you're allowed to have a conceal carry weapons permit, which extends itself to any easily concealed deadly weapon, nunchucks included. Tennessee (where I currently reside) only allows for a conceal carry handgun permit.

Personally? I'd love to be walking down the street and whip out some nunchucks on a mugger, just to see the look on their face. Maybe launch some throwing stars or a couple of sharpened stainless-steel chopsticks at them. That's me, though, my sense of humor has always been off kilter.

Could be cooked. Or it could just be country ham.

... why is it that when I become interested in a particular skill, I always have to find videos of somebody who's practiced that skill for so long it would be humanly impossible for me to become THAT good?

Self sabatauge. That was easy.
But really I can sympathize. It's like when I tried to learn guitar. Once i was doing that very basic practice of where fingers go for a cord, the very slow way beginners do like they're afraid the strings might explode, and a Santana video came on.

If that chick (s) wearing bacon was holding the nunchucks, and maybe proteas in the background giving a thumbs up, that'd be sweet.

I'm having a glorious wave of nostalgia right now...nobody better do anything to cock it up either because with my goddamn cynical nature if it gets cocked up I may not believe in nothing no more (already you can tell I don't believe in things like sentence structure and proper word usage).

Shrike, am I missing something? When were you remodded?

Had a very drama-filled night last night involving a friend. Will probably do a blog entry later, when I'm back from Pittsburgh. My boyfriend's gonna take a shower, then I'll hop in, and we'll go to Comicon.

Stan Lee was there yesterday. Boy, the place sure cleared out when he left. We didn't stand in that gimungous line, but our friends did. I am hearing mixed reviews about whether ticket prices/lines/etc. were worth it.

Boyfriend has a gimongous stack of comics but has spent less than 100 bucks on them since they all ended up being trades. XD I bought some DVDs and two Silent Hill soundtracks that I have been looking for forever. Gonna go raid the floor again today.

Then when I get back, it's time to go do some schoolwork. I think I can make the Wednesday deadline though because I already began work on the project. Other than that it's reading and whatnot.

Looks like the percentage of mods who are Regs is inching back up again.

UPDATE (redux):

brought my laptop and the AirPort Express over to our neighbours. Got it to work no problem using their modem.

VERDICT:

our modem is a piece of shit.

also, cocks.

Bacon is healthy. Doctors say it isn't because they're pushing their anti-bacon communist agenda with obama to pass the new Communist Health system where no American can eat bacon, only the immigrants that steal our jobs.

After watching Battle Melon on Iron Chef America, I decided I wanted to pick up a jicama root. There's a Korean grocery right by the place where we do Sunday brunch, so we bought one.

I have no idea what to do with this thing. There are recipes all over the internet, and I'm sure eventually I'll want to try all of them, but I'm kind of at a loss what to do with this first jicama.

So any suggestions would be hot ;)
