Quote from: SredniVashtar on September 22, 2022, 03:46:49 AMIt's a mockery. At least we can agree on something. I'm very picky about the standard of Dick I put in my mouth.

Stronger and sharper than Ginsu knives and can even cut through a can of baked beans and still slice your bread with ease. Only 3 easy payments of 5 Guineas, sorry Euros, sorry Pounds and they can be yours!" Director: 'that take was great but less smiling, we can see those horrible teeth.'
Quote from: K_Dubb on September 22, 2022, 04:23:56 PMI'm not I used to be able to get the Heinz right down the street and once in a blue moon would pick one up with some Bird's Custard Powder, usually when a new season of Downton Abbey came out. It is bad, spotted dick should not be a sponge but an old-fashioned boiled suet pudding with the density of a cannonball, but it did have that fusty British taste. Sort of hate-eating. I feel the same way about Norwegian cod cakes, I never really liked them growing up but will pick them up once in a while to remind myself how awful they are.
Quote from: SredniVashtar on September 23, 2022, 04:43:26 AMI'd be surprised if they had any suet in them, they are more like treacle puddings with a few currants shoved in, that's about it. There's no reason they can't make them properly, because Fray Bentos steak and kidney puddings don't skimp on the suet, I think they just believe that everyone is so ignorant that they won't even question what they are being given. Anyway, you can't appreciate a proper suet pudding unless you are living here on one of those damp, cold miserable days and the only thing that can stop you from swilling down a litre or two of window cleaning fluid in sheer misery and desperation is a good old 'ribsticker', as my grandmother used to call them.By the way, I am currently re-reading Martin Chuzzlewit. Boy, did Dickens nail you bastards to a 'T'. It was controversial at the time and he had to do some reverse-gearing afterwards, but his withering assessment has more than stood the test of time. I'll have to buy another copy because the one I have now is covered in my comments like 'too fucking right!', and 'tell it, big boy!'.
Quote from: K_Dubb on September 23, 2022, 11:26:30 AMWe have very similar weather here, famously. I just don't think Heinz actually expects anyone to actually eat their spotted dicks, just keep them as objects of ridicule. It pains me to see these humble comforts so denigrated!

Quote from: albrecht on September 24, 2022, 09:43:52 PMSome amazing places. And some 'interesting' people. And wide variety of mountains coming down to plains. Coulees. Hanging Valleys. Injun stuff. Scab lands. Rich, rolling plains. Home of crazy flood that gained a geologist laughed at by colleagues final vindication.
Quote from: K_Dubb on Yesterday at 09:29:34 AMYes! J. Harlen Bretz, a hero to local geology, big hit here during pandemic was a professor Nick Zentner from Ellensburg who did geology lectures on youtube and some field trips, you might like him, nice folksy guy. We all know who J. Harlen Bretz was now haha
