"Fast-food fried chicken is prepared in special pressure cookers (p. 785), which fry at the usual oil temperature, but raise the boiling point of water, so that less of the moisture in the meat vaporizes during the cooking."

Harold McGee "Food and Cooking: An Encyclopedia of Kitchen Science, History and Culture."

It's quite a funny meme really.


Fernando - yes it is a funny meme, and may well indicate more accurately what people are reading than book lists in a side bar! I just thought that there have been a lot of meme's about and that people may be suffering a little from meme fatigue.


You are right on both counts - there's potentially meme-fatigue going around and this meme might be a better reflection of what people are reading than sidebar lists.

"It's not rocket science Amy. If you can afford a Lamborghini all well and good, but if you've got one at the same time as you've got store card debt, credit card debt and a second mortgage that keeps you awake at night, or if you have to work such long hours to pay for the thing that you have time to spit, let alone smell the roses, then get a Mondeo!"

Brodie I am playing this time and have posted on site.


I love this meme... when I did it last summer my nearest book was a book of adult limericks so I turned to the designated page in fear and trepidation that it might end up being a limerick that was totally suitable for posting!! Huge sigh of relief then when I found these...

There once was a pious young priest
who lived almost wholly on yeast.
'For', he said, 'it is plain
we must all rise again,
and I want to get started at least.'

There was a young priest of Dun Laoghaire
who stood on his head in the Kyrie;
When people asked why,
he said in reply:
'It's the latest liturgical theory.'


I am not a big fan of memes in general but I like this one...


Stuart - you are fickle!


Danny - glad your limerick's were "clean"


Jason - thanks for tagging me on this.


yes, meme fatigue is in this summer :)
