Nan-in, a Japanese master during the Meiji era (1868-1912), received a university professor who came to inquire about Zen.
Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor's cup full, and then kept on pouring.
The professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself. "It is overfull. No more will go in!"
"Like this cup," Nan-in said, "you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?"
And then Nan-in put the Japanese guy to work for 14 hours without pay or a bathroom break. When the master complained, saying, `What the gently caress, Nan-in', Nan-in replied serenely, `Katsu!' and smacked him across the face. Katsu is Japanese for the invisible hand of the marketplace.

Rule .303 posted:

I buy those and cook the carcass down with a pressure cooker, but I add in a tablespoon of vinegar to cook out the marrow and the collagen from the bones. I run it through a strainer and pick out the meat to add back in later. It sounds goulish, but when you do this you wind up with stock that wobbles like jello in the fridge.

I add celery and carrots and onions as a sort of garni that gets strained out with the bones, and add more veggies when I add the meat back in with potatoes. It is a great use for the back, wings, and the ever famous "chicken butt".

I'll be doing this next month with a friend who wants help learning to use her pressure cooker. (last month we made gedamptefleish with apricots in a pressure cooker 'cause her gramma used to make it)

I finally had enough carcasses to make stock, and it was a-wigglin' away in the fridge, and I realized that I have no idea what to do with it. Not in the mood for soup, I froze it in cubes and I guess I'll figure it out at some point...

You can make some interesting variations on rissotto or cook up some broth with couscous or bulgar. I don't like it with egg noodles, which is odd since I tend to eat anything.

~some broke rear end in a top hat
Partially true. Universities have, in recent decades, become increasingly structured as overgrown vocational schools. In this form, the syllubi are almost universally ill-designed---too bloated for pure vocational training, too threadbare for creating students with the sort of broad body of knowledge associated with University learning in prior centuries. The single greatest motivator for this change is probably a greater reliance on standardised testing and a corresponding decline in the general rigour of such testing.

So universities generally have the effect of keeping students out of the work force longer than they'd be without university, but this is not the intent of the system. The greater debt burden is also an effect rather than a goal of the system, but one which is structurally perpetuated because of the implicit economic incentives. All of this applies to nonprofit universities; clearly this is indeed an intentional end of any for-profit university.

In all cases it is becoming increasingly difficult to make a case for higher education purely in terms of value for money; most degrees simply cost more than they should, and in (increasingly) many cases more than they're worth (in economic terms).

Next.

Yeah, I think my first thing will be the next time I cook up rice, toss one or two stock cubes of those in with or instead of the water and see how it comes out.

I didn't expect it to be QUITE as concentrated as it is, so I'm a little intimidated by it!

I have been through two earthquakes and missed both of them. The first was in SF on Halloween many years ago, I was so loving loaded I refused to get out of bed and seek shelter, I was convinced my friend was being a jerk and shaking hte bed to get me to go out and drink more.

The second was the quake in DC this year. I was working a huge outdoor even on the national mall and was driving around in a golf cat with bad shocks the entire time and didn't even notice it. I only found out when my radio went crazy with people talking about it. Again, I thought they were kidding when they wanted to stop work and wait for aftershocks, I refused to believe them until one of the park rangers got on and told me to shut up.

I went through an earthquake when I lived in Cupertino, CA, at the wee age of 10. I remember everything shaking, but I never felt scared since it was a magnitude 4.something. I was more amazed that I actually experienced an earthquake than I was scared.

I don't understand how people freeze their stock as cubes. Do you have like 30 ice cube trays or something?

Yeah, I have to note that my mother was taking a nap in the other room, and she didn't even wake up until I bounded in all excited going "There was an earthquake! There was an earthquake!"

On a related note, the last day of school was nice in Cali, because we got to open up our earthquake kits and get all hopped up on the snacks and stuff we put in at the beginning of the year.

Freeze in trays, then pop them out and let them hang out in a ziplock bag. Refill trays with water.

I believe he means how do you freeze entire pots of stock in ice cube trays unless you have a lot of them.

Even when I make a giant pot of stock, once I get done straining, skimming and reducing, I'm left with a couple quarts at most. which is probably like 5 or 6 ice cube trays. Worst case, you freeze it in batches. And I generally don't freeze all of it, as I will use some the week I make it.

You can skip the whole ice cube step, if you want. just pour it in a ziplock bag and freeze it. Takes up less space that way, usually.

I put mine in sandwich bag sized ziplocks, which is usually exactly how much I want for a sauce or whatever. and then one or two bigger ziplocks for soups.

I lay them flat on a sheet tray to freeze, so when they're frozen they stand up like books and I can just stack a row of them side by side
