Do you know how if you get a lot of hydrogen together it ignites an explosion that will last a billion years radiating enough light and heat to power the wildest dreams of its brightest children? It turns out if you sell enough spaceship jpegs, the same thing happens, only the explosion radiates schadenfreude.

Star Citizen's who haven't requested refunds in general need help.

Those that are continually pledging to the greater good of the Church need even more. But its a fantastic show from the pews here.

I was watching Fart Shitizen off and on from 2012 to 2014, holding off on building a gaming rig for it and never bought any ships. I got married and bought a couple watches to go with my $20 wedding ring with the money I would have spent on a decent gaming pc. My interest was reignited by all the drama that was bubbling up since the summer. I've been lurking for a while on the old thread, after seeing an @dsmart tweet with a link to it, and today's drama finally pushed me over the edge. The old thread and its baby are the most entertaining threads I've ever read on a forum. Here is my goddamn :10bux:

What happened that gave Derek Smart the keys to the kingdom?

He basically brought the whole thing into the public sphere that were simmering the whole time. Derek Smart wrote a thing on his blog, newsites went 'lol look at this Derek Smart says poo poo', Escapist then went and published something with their own sources which went 'hey, this might be true'. Then, Chris Roberts sent a long, rambling public rant about Derek Smart and The Escapist, threatening to sue. Basically what CR did was prove the project was in trouble, because a healthy company doesn't let its CEO do that. Also they are never going to sue because their financials would be part of discovery and that is the last thing they want.

The brown sea is dark and full of terrors, but the paywall burns them all away.

quote:

Coconut Tofu
:lesnick: Block of Tofu. 1lb. Extra firm.
:lesnick: Corn starch.
:lesnick: 3 or 4 egg whites.
:lesnick: Panko/Japanese breadcrumbs. They provide the finished product with a nicer texture I feel.
:lesnick: Italian blend breadcrumbs. They taste nice.
:lesnick: Sweetened shredded coconut. We'll need probably a third of one of the bags that you see in the supermarket.

Dip
:lesnick: Pina Colada mix. Powder. Mine came in a 35g pouch.
:lesnick: Crushed pineapples in juice. Pictured below is a 20oz can. I only had a can of chunks which I broke up myself, crushed is what you want.
:lesnick: Like 3 tablespoons of sugar.
:lesnick: 12 oz cream cheese.

Preparation
:lesnick:Get the block of tofu. Extra firm, as illustrated by Alton Brown. Freeze this solid, then thaw it out. This will serve to give it a meatier consistency than if you did not. We like meaty.

:lesnick:Slice it like Alton is demonstrating here, but a lot thinner. Like a lot. Like in the area 1/8" or so. The thinner they are without going overboard, the less we will notice that it is tofu instead of shrimp.

:lesnick:Lay your thin slices out on paper towels and throw a heavy cutting board on top or something. Leave it there for an hour or so. If you're feeling impatient just press on the board yourself till it seems pretty squeezed. Whatever.

:lesnick:Now while your tofu is being pressed, we will make the Pina Colada dipping sauce. This is modeled after Applebee's and after reading a couple of recipes decided that I'd mix the ingredients listed above until tasty to get what I needed.

:lesnick:It may not look like much but it tastes good. I used a hand blender to mix the cream cheese, pina colada mix, sugar, and almost the entire can of pineapples with juice. You may want to hold back on the pineapples a bit and do it to taste but they're my favorite part. That's all. If I had more pineapples around they'd probably go in there too. I like pineapples.

:lesnick:Now you could probably marinate the tofu in some excess pineapple juice for like 15 minutes, which I plan on doing next time. After this optional step, get the oil going. Get a big enough steep-walled pan going with like 1/8"-1/4" of peanut oil or something else with a high smoke point. We want that to be like 325 degress F. If you lack a thermometer like I do at the moment, just drop some coconut shreds in there and see if they take a minute or two to turn brown. That's the temperature we want.

:lesnick:Now I set up the corn starch, egg whites, and coconut/breadcrumbs(both types) combo as pictured. The breadcrumb mixture probably came out to 3 parts coconut, 2 parts panko, 1 part italian breadcrumbs. Go in order from left to right, dipping the pressed strips of tofu into each item. Make sure you get plenty of the breading on the strips.

:lesnick:Drop them into the hot oil, let them go for a couple of minutes till the underside is golden brown and delicious, as pictured. Then flip and wait for the other. You'll have to do this a few times if you made the whole block of tofu.

:lesnick:When they finish in the pan, drop them onto a rack or paper towels or a brown paper bag or something and let them lose some oil and cool off a tiny bit.

:lesnick:Then plate them with the dip(which you have had chillin like a villian in the fridge) and eat. Enjoy. If it sucks, it's not my fault.
Attempted this recipe recently and found the flavor to be a little lackluster. Any advice on how to add a little more excitement?

So.. let me get this straight;

Angry disillusioned racist space nerds following a pube-hating b-actress who's secretly married to a washed out space game developer from the 90's that sells dreams in jpeg-format with Gary Oldman's face on them while laundering money through horse racing with the Swedish mafia and a guy named Fat Steve start an internet war with another Space Game developer that proceeds by threatening to sue everybody while leaking letters made by people who work at a company that dislikes everybody with a Something Awful account, pubes and a mind of their own.. also food recipes and funny gifs of broken space physics.

Internet.
