I'll have to look for the theme to Tales From the Darkside.  I can't remember it at all.

What happened in that episode, cookieface, is that the kid goes to some witch doctor-y sort of person for help.  The witch doctor gives the kid a mysterious package, which turns out to be a napkin full of pepper.  The dead granddad goes to open the napkin to put it in his lap at dinner, sneezes, and his nose comes off.

That episode was hilarious, I agree.  The guy's zombie makeup progressed, and he says, "I told you I ain't dead so often I'm blue in the face!"  :lol:

Tales From the Darkside reminds me of Dark Shadows, which I heard the theme of a million times, but I don't think I ever watched a full episode - I just couldn't get into it. It used to come on after school, about the same time as Gilligan's Island, Leave it to Beaver, Andy Griffith, etc. Although I never watched the show, I'd always listen to the theme song, because I loved it.

I'm not sure how that fits into the theory though.

I don't remember which thread we were having the pot roast conversation in...

So I've been cooking it in the crock pot on high for about 6.5 hours now, and it's still not falling apart. Some parts of it are, like the parts around the fat, but the other pieces feel kinda tough. I guess I should've used the low setting, huh? Or maybe I should've gotten a piece of chuck roast with more fat in it?

I browned it in a skillet first. Maybe I left it in there too long. I kinda like the charred outside part. I used two envelopes of the Lipton's Onion soup mix and 3/4 cup water. The recipe on the Lipton box says on high for 4 - 6 hours or low for 8 - 10 hours. That's for a 3.5lb piece. The one I got was like 2.75lb.

Should I just keep cooking?

The best way to tell is to taste it. You may be right about it being better to cook it on low for longer.

I am afraid I cannot give you much advice on the whole crock-pot thing. I always do my pot roast in the oven, in a dutch oven. I cook it at around 300 - 325 for several hours.

I like the crock pot for many things, but I prefer the roasted-ness that pot roast gets in the oven.

Forty-five degrees for three hundred and fifty minutes, if I remember the recipe correctly.





Maybe you need more water in there?  Is there still a significant amount of watery liquid at the bottom of the pot?

Ok, I have a stupider question.  I want to change my pic and can't get it to work.  Can I not download from iPhoto?  Cause apparently I can't download from iPhoto.  Please help the computer retard.   :(
I need this done ASAP, or whenever you can get around to it.  Tomorrow is fine.

Open iPhoto and drag the pic you want to your desktop. It should be easier to upload from there.

Keep in mind there's a size limitation. 

Why do I get the feeling that's going to end up in TFJ's sig line?

Yeah, there's a lot of liquid still in there, and I just checked on it and it's starting to come apart a little bit more now.

I knew I probably should have cooked it on low, but I just had to try it the fast way so I'd learn the hard way.

I'm afraid to taste it because I'm starving. I wouldn't be able to stop and I haven't cooked my rice yet. I'm about to give in though.

The change-a-my-profile-avatar-picture-thing page for BC has a maximum This by That pixel size, if I remember correctly.  But for some reason I can't load my profile page at the moment.

I used to change my avatar a lot, but I just like this one so much.  [Thank you, Sinfest!]

 :lol: @ TFJ's sig.

How big is too big?

heh.

150 X 150 pixels is the maximum.

Back to the pot roast: it was pretty awesome  :thumbsup:

Boston Butt is next.

D&D Experts, prithee hark:

We recently got in some early First Edition AD&D rulebooks, like the ones everyone was using in the early 80s.  These are in really nice shape, whereas my own, for instance, are beaten to crap in typical fashion, reinforced with tape, written in (many amusing comments, etc), and so forth.  I was considering buying these nicer copies from the shop, but of course first I have to figure out what they're worth.

And while it's First Edition AD&D, that doesn't mean they're first-edition books, if you follow me.  So I look online, and, uh, WTF is this person selling?

Even guessing that the "132 pages" is a typo for "232 pages", I can't tell if they know what they're talking about or not.  I was under the impression that the only really valuable edition was the one with Monster Manual pages accidentally included.  This website seems to agree, and see their helpful explanation of editions here.

Am I missing something?

Our copy is apparently a fourth printing, anyway, and consequently nothing I should feel guilty about buying from the shop, but since it's a conflict of interest I want to be doubly sure.
