I'm sort of obsessed with non-destructive construction aesthetic. No nails, no glues, everything connected with bolts and clamps and joinery, no wire ever laid in a place you wont be able to reach later, nothing permanent, everything renegotiable.

Follow these principles and experimentation will have no material costs.

I don't know how practical it is, but I was raised on Lego and Data and an edict of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and so I do not know if I can live well any other way, I just need it

Hm other sources are saying it's a complete protein, maybe they just mean it can be improved a fair bit with the addition of wheat.

If it turns out that the real reason I love this is because I started taking vitamin D pills at around the same time as I started making it (usually eaten during the meal) that's going to be disappointing

Hm. Nope, not a complete protein apparently: "Amaranth grain is deficient in essential amino acids such as leucine and threonine[9][10] – (both of which are present in wheat germ)"

An unprofessional recipe for the staple meal I have been scarfing for like 2 months now, Amaranth Chickpea: makopool.com/amaranth_chickpea
(I might update the review once I've measured and perfected the quantities involved)

"may well be at the very optimum of nutrition, taste, ease of cooking and affordability"

Dream that the country or maybe the entire world was flooding. The defense force were giving children helepacks and telling them to just fly east as far as they could.

It was a mistake to stick with Vivaldi as long as I did. Firefox + Tree Style Tabs + a few css mods to clean things up.

No, mum. You can't just "pause" mastodon. If I log off they're going to either start attacking each other like feral animals or make a new meme that isn't funny. This is very important.

Rekka has kept a really good diary of our day to day (mis)adventures. The TLDR version is that it was just horrible, 1000nm off the coast of Japan we we knocked down and the capsize ripped of everything that wasn't the mast from the deck, so we lost our solar panel, dodger, etc..

We'll start posting the transcription of the log soon. I

No true thing requires you to deny another true thing in the course of defending it.

For some reason this got spam filtered so a lot of people might have missed it, some visual/dataflow programming env formerly called Luna, now Enso, is rewriting its UI in non-web stuff medium.com/@enso_org/enso-dev-

I look forward to playing around with it when it's a bit more complete. It looks yum.

Has anyone ever seen sichuan chilli oil for sale? Lots of recipes, lots of sichuan restaurants use it, but none of the store-bought jars of chili oils I've tried use sichuan peppercorns. It doesn't seem to go off, so this is odd.

Hmm curious: "From 1968 to 2005,[15] the United States Food and Drug Administration banned the importation of Sichuan peppercorns because they were found to be capable of carrying citrus canker (as the tree is in the same family, Rutaceae, as the genus Citrus). This bacterial disease, which is very difficult to control, could potentially harm the foliage and fruit of citrus crops in the U.S. It was never an issue of harm in human consumption."

Chickpeas with amaranth and sesame seed, a cube of stock and chilis (today, included szechuan peppercorn). Extremely good with extremely little effort (beyond sourcing the amaranth and soaking the chickpeas beforehand, but these things become habit)

"Sam is the author of euphoric sound landscapes inspired by the writings of David Pearce, largely exemplified in his latest album — aptly named “Utility.” Sam’s artistic excellence, motivated by blissful visions of the future, and David’s philosophical and technological writings on the potential for the biological domestication of heaven are a perfect match made for the fusion of artistic, moral, and intellectual excellence.
