Guys, that last thread lasted 66 pages. That's pathetic.

I ordered some larb at a local Thai restaurant and asked for it to come back right spicy. It was spicy alright, but it also smelled like straight up farts. I don't know what it was, but it was rank. There was just no way my girlfriend and I could eat it.

Maybe they amped the heat with nuoc nam, thus also adding smelly fish sauce to the dishes?

I have never, not once, experienced a bechamel or mornay separating. A gentle simmering for a little while doesn't do any harm. Plus, if I'm making bechamel it's always to top a lasagne, which gets the sauce another 30-40 minutes of high-heat exposure.

Mr. Wiggles posted:

No no no. I wasn't at the actual Oktoberfest in Munich, as cool as that would have been. Rather, I was at our town's fest, which is really cool on two levels. First, since we're a farm town, there's actual significance to a harvest festival since we've just finished, well, harvesting. But second, it's put on by and as a benefit for the junior high and highschool music programs. So it's in this great big barn, and everybody in town comes. There's good German music, plus the highschool band and choirs perform. All the kids work as servers bringing delicious foods like soups and hot kraut and assorted sausages and potato cakes and cucumber salads and everything else you can think of. The Rotary Club runs DAS BIERGARTEN in the corner of the barn under it's own little tent with it's own lights hanging and such and they bring in a great many kegs of pretty good actual marzens and weisbiers from good breweries that we all drink from big 1 litre mugs all night long. Actually, it's very close to the big party scene from the first LOTR movie - It's a real community thing, you see, and it's actual good wholesome fun for everyone involved. And we raise a ton of money for the music program, which is good because they don't get any actual funding from the school district.

Y'know, that sounds like fine way to spend your time. At least, better than being verbally and physically abused by Australians in dirndls. I want that country to return to being a prison colony after what I saw last week.

It's exactly what I'd expect you'd get if you filter five generations of Norwegians through American puritanism and church potlucks.

The guy in the video is a family friend of a friend.

They're usually best with a generous blob of brown sauce on them (i.e. something like HP Sauce, but more commonly just a generic brand)

Nice find. I can't recall seeing a report of metates on Clovis sites, but we have very few settlement areas to compare to. We've found more weapons caches than anything else from them. They're mainly thought of as nomadic hunters who followed big game around. The metate didn't become common among Mesoamerican people until they became semi-sedentary horticulturists. Before that, they tended to use more portable grinding implements.

How common is basalt near Reno? I'm not familiar with the geology. If there aren't any basalt outcroppings in the area, I'd be very skeptical of the metate dating back to Clovis. There's very strong evidence for trade from Mexico (which has more basalt than the indigenous people knew what to do with) later in the archaeological record.

He just did (though I'd strongly recommend the UNR Anthropology Department, they're excellent and far more qualified than me to comment). I'm no expert on radiometrics, but the best way to learn more about the material of this artifact would probably be trace element analysis to narrow down where it was quarried. The farther it had to come to end up in Wiggles's back yard, the later it probably dates to.

Theoretically there could also be some molecular food traces on the surface. I've seen a lot of good food-trace analysis done on ancient pottery, and while it might not tell us much the presence of maize proteins would be strongly diagnostic for post-Clovis. Absence of maize proteins would tell us a lot less, but it still might be interesting. We would need more than a couple of stubborn protein chains to do C14 dating or anything, though.

Not sure what proteins you're talking about, but microbotanical analysis (phytoliths for maize, starch grain analysis for squashes) would tell you a lot more about how that thing was used.

edit: Reminds me of the old adage that if you get 10 archaeologists in the room, you'll hear 14 opinions.
