Topic Eggs - in the fridge or no?

What's a larder? I'm from a back woods place called California.

My larder is a cupboard in my kitchen where I keep things like gravy salt, custard powder, biscuits (cookies) and stuff like that.

It's for stuff that you want to keep cool but not chilled

My understanding is that there is no definitive answer to this... I watched one of these cooking programmes a while back and they have callers and one who asked your question. One chef said fridge the other said not.

edit - apparently there is a right way up too !

Be serious! It's no yolk!

I'm a scraper, my gf is a digger. It doesn't matter cos I have Lurpak and Laura swears by Olivio.

When I go to my Grandmas, she insists on putting a small amount of butter in a separate dish. She is a bit posh lol

Great topic, Katie

No one knows for certain the origins of OK. I know Lush prefers okay to OK, but both are acceptable really.

I don't care, either way.

Humans are naturally tribal and so on a primitive level discrimination is innate in our species. But this behaviour is just not tolerable or acceptable in a civilized society. We are not in the palaeolithic.

It's right and proper that we recognize that there are differences between cultures and populations, who have different heritages. However to use those differences, especially skin tone to discriminate is just mad.

There needs to be a zero tolerance to racism at all levels of society

Well yes, but you know what I mean. As long as there's something to make us look, sound, or act differently there will be prejudice and hate. As little as that difference is. Even if we all looked exactly the same, people will find a way to discriminate.

Agreed

Passing gun control laws when a society is already flooded with guns does not make for accurate statistics. Plus those laws are only considered strict when compared to the rest of the gun laws in the US where the gun laws are some of the most lax in the entire world. Gun registries and laws similar to the way we treat cars is what is needed to make any kind of difference in that regard.

Race is another story. As long as there are different races there will be racism. It's sad but true. Maybe in a million years we'll all mix together but something else will replace racism once it's gone. Like if we all look alike then people will be prejudice of what district or barrio someone is from, or height or weight or left handedness or religion or some other bullshit. Prejudice will always be there, always. It's just in our nature to be shitheads.

There aren't different races, except in some people's ignorance

American is a nationality. African American is a cultural identity; the two are not mutually exclusive. The same goes for Korean Australian etc.

It's true, words are not enough. Basic anthropology should be taught in all schools. Young children don't 'see' skin tones. It becomes indoctrinated from the media and ill informed adults. If you can tackle racist notions at its root, then you stand a chance. Peace and love xxx

Ultimately, true harmony and equality will come when the false notion of race is crushed for the lie that it is. We are one race.

Race perpetuates the notion that people are more different than they are. It will probably take a hundred years, but it will happen, assuming we haven't blown ourselves up by then.

Alright...I've taken a breather.

'Global white supremacy' pertains to the system of White Supremacy on which this country operates.

It doesn't pertain to any one person or groups of people. It pertains to the system as a whole.

Global White Supremacy in this instance does not pertain to the KKK and neo-nazis that come to mind when white supremacy is mentioned.

So yes, you did misinterpret. And no, the message is not driving out hate with hate.

And rest assured, the victims' families are seething. But how do you think 'Fuck everything and everyone' would have blown over if that was the message they sent out? Since when has Black people publicly being angry gone over well?

Do you see how easy it is to pretend that all is well and that we've all swept things under the rug moved on? Do you really think that less than 72 hours after this massacre, these people's families are feeling kindhearted and forgiving? They know that they're not truly at liberty to say otherwise.

My impression and it's only an impression is that there is a particular brand of anti-black feeling in USA that's not abroad in UK and a lot of Europe. Frankly, racism is a mystery to me. There are racist movements and groups + individuals in Europe, but I don't think there is the institutionalized type of racism that you appear to have in USA.

Currently in Europe, there is a lot of Islamaphobia and general anti-immigrant feeling, but I don't see an anti-black or racist feeling per se. I think most of that has been exposed for the ignorance and stupidity that it is. It's old fashioned.

Dani, I really hope and pray that you see some justice and equality on your side of the pond one day.

There is clearly a major racist related element to this vile outrage. The killer was driven by hatred of black people, which led to this appalling mass murder.

We in Europe see that, but forgive us if we see the inseparable role of firearms in US massacres. I thought what Obama said yesterday, was spot on.

This is no more a gun issue than it is a pipe bomb issue.

The issue is White Supremacy and this country's obsession with sweeping it under the rug.

Gun control is an entirely different conversation, and to gloss over the obvious race issues to go for the gun argument is just...gross.

There is clearly a big racist element in this shooting, but it's still mainly a guns issue IMHO

Topic Women in the UK - Don't waste your vote!
Posted 10 Jun 2015 23:22



No offence Danielle but voting Green is to all intense and purposes a wasted vote as they will never realistically ever come into power.

No vote is a wasted vote. In my constituency by your analysis any vote other than Labour would be a wasted vote. Labour won with 28401 votes, The Green got 2140 votes and Conservatives only got 4098 votes and they won the whole thing.
