B-but raw onions are bitter.

i'm from walla walla

Motherfucker, I know you ain't bringing up a second class onion like that before Vidalia.

(Actually I think Walla Walla onions are better than Vidalia onions)

It might just be a little bit, but that tiny bit of spicy makes everything better.
It really does. I run out of cayenne flakes almost as often as I run out of black pepper. It's just one of those go-to spices for all manner of dishes.

So all your food tastes identically? That's pretty sad, being so afraid of flavour.

I have dreams to retire on a scratch farm, because so many people want to make things from scratch.

I also want to start a line of inorganic* food, to cater to the neglected population that cannot consume carbon.

*"Organic" food is high on my list for "most true-but-useless marketing label" award, since food not labeled organic is most assuredly not "inorganic".

It's just as funny in Norwegian... "Organisk" is the most direct translation of organic, and is used to describe things like organic chemistry and whether or not an event occurred "organically". This is not what's used to define food as having been grown organically, however (and is overall a very rarely-used word).

The word for organic-labeled food is "Økologisk". Ecologic. Different word, makes just as little sense.

Its a certification, and a good example of how lobbyists can practically patent a word that had previous meanings and make it their own.

'Natural flavors'
'organic'
'pre-owned'

et cetera.



If words mean only what we assign to them, then with the power of tv and government regulations/oversight and boatloads of money we can change the way the word is viewed.

*"Ekologisk"

And it makes perfect sense!

Well yes - that is why it's a WTF.  Language does have mutable meaning, but that doesn't mean I have to like it when "the infamous They" misappropriate words.

The Milwaukee Public Museum has a TV advert which is a voice over repeating the word moustache for about 30 seconds.

Like when people misappropriated the word "fruit" so that the grouping includes tomatoes?

And cucumbers! And squash. Also peppers.

So, basically, you can make some salsa/pico de gallo and call it a fruit salad. Just in case you're headed to a potluck and want to irritate people.

Umm... those are fruit though - they are the seed-containing portion of the plant.

I suppose arguing about that is like arguing about if Pluto is a planet, dwarf planet, dog, or deity of the underworld.  (In other words, perfect for internet forums!)

Pluto is a planet and I'll fight anyone who says otherwise.

That's not the definition of fruit, that's the way They misappropriated it :P

Can't tell whether or not the fact that the link redirects to "about:blank" in most browsers is an intentional statement about the usefulness of arguing about those topics.
