Wheat Loaf
Feb 13, 2012

I used to only have white bread, then I switched to brown bread and only realised how much I'd gone off white bread when I was making my sandwiches to take into work and we'd run out of the whole wheat stuff. White bread is far too sweet-tasting.

Pumpernickel is the best bread because it is both delicious and a good name for a cat.

White bread is not universally the sweet stuff you get if you buy like Wonderbread etc. There are plenty of freshly baked white breads that taste fine and are just as good as the bread you can get everywhere else, right in your American supermarket if they have a bakery.

white or wheat bread they ask and the sandwich shop, but all i can think is 'the brown bread, not the tan brown but the dark dark brown, the really dark brown'

So how do you differentiate between white and brown/wholemeal bread that are both made of wheat?

Gluten free bread should not be called bread. That's like calling tofu a meat substitute. Tofu is a perfectly fine complement to meat dishes but never on its own.

I'd say this is inaccurate for me just because I've seen people treat kids differently depending on if it's their own or otherwise. If someone treats kids like poo poo then they're probably not good people in other ways but if someone avoids or ignores a kid I don't see it as a bad thing, when I've seen people who dote on kids act horribly otherwise. How they treat service/retail members or animals works better for me.

One unpopular opinion I have is that ketchup is a bad condiment and there is always a better option.

Wheat bread and wholemeal wheat bread?

I mean I guess the US has a specific type of bread that's called "white", fine. But isn't that just wheat bread?

No. When you ask for wheat bread it's usually a brown colored bread or whole wheat bread. White bread here specifically refers to the ultra processed and soft wonder bread stuff.

There are other white colored breads like sourdough or baguettes or ciabatta but people don't call that white bread.

Yeah "wheat bread" is generally whole wheat bread. "White bread" is usually heavily processed, bleached garbage bread full of high fructose corn syrup. Granted sometimes wheat bread is that stuff made with whole wheat instead of processed what but you know.

Every other kind of bread is what you'd expect. Rye bread is rye, sourdough is sourdough, and so forth.

In Australia white bread is made of white flour and wholemeal bread is made of wholemeal flour. Wikipedia suggests that the same distinction is made in America.

Even the "best anime" is garbage made by people trained to use what are fundamentally cheap cost-saving animation techniques borne out of the economic conditions of their era, and as a consequence anime can't hold a candle to proper animated movies.

Ghibli movies are excellently animated, at least. Miyazaki set out with the intention of emulating Disney animation in its technical proficiency and did a fuckin' ace job of it. As far as the medium goes television-wise, it's as lovely as a ton of Western produced animation, just in a different way.

You're god-damned right. When at somebody's house, seeing their kid watching the cheapest, most terrible animated shows, I feel a huge urge to turn the TV off. It's almost as strong as the urge to fix the drat aspect ratio.

Nickelodeon 's Jimmy Neutron displays more technical prowess in animation than South Park, and has more potential to be a cultural milestone in American television.

I don't think anyone seriously thinks Trump is going to bring about the end of the world. There are a lot of people saying it, but deep down I'm sure they know that, while things may likely get lovely for them/the world, things will keep on going on as they have been and there will be no end of the world in our lifetime.

A somewhat related opinion: moving to another country solely because of an election result is shameful, and people who do this should have their citizenship revoked permanently. If you want to enjoy the benefits of US citizenship you should stay and try to change it when you don't get your way instead of throwing a tantrum and letting everyone else without the means to move elsewhere sort it out.

This exact argument is used by Finnish nationalists against refugees from Syria or Iraq. "If they were good people why didn't they stay and fight for their country?"

It's pretty clear from the post that I'm making no comment about the situation of any of these countries, but rather about the arguments used against refugees and/or immigrants.
