    That right there is a brilliant interplay of fog machines, weed smoke and lasers.

    @Juice your mention of the Vietnam vet reminded me of our elderly neighbor in Alabama. He randomly gifted my husband a shotgun over his chain link fence one day. I think hubs helped him with his TV the week before or something.

    I'd pop by.


    So settle a debate for me. Do you eat top ramen with a broth or do you drain the noodles and apply the seasoning pack directly on them?

    There is a right and a wrong answer.

    Ramen is not spaghetti.

    It's supposed to have a broth.

    Though I had a roommate that would sprinkle the seasoning packet directly on the dry noodles and eat them like he was eating the world's crunchiest granola bar.

    I strain them maybe halfway, for a thicker broth.

    I used to eat it with broth, but as I've gotten older I ust sprinkle some of the seasoning on the noodles. I use less that way, which is good because it's so high in sodium.

    One time on a long distance hike I was hungry but it wasn't time to stop for lunch yet. So I broke out a brick of ramen noodles, ate them dry, and drank some water to fill me up. Kinda gross, but it worked.

    We live in the country so our neighbors arent really right on top of us, though we can see each others' houses. One neighbor, a friend's dad, is awesome, and I was so happy when he and his wife moved in. On the other side of me is a childhood friend's daughter, who along with her husband is about useless as a bag of assholes. I'm pretty sure they live there rent free courtesy of mom, and they can't even be bothered to keep their yard cleaned up. Her stepfather drives his little lawnmower a couple miles to mow the lawn for them. What kind of man sits on his ass inside while his father in law mows the lawn?!?

    That and they have that fucking dog that won't quit barking when they tie it up outside.

    The rest of the "neighbors" in our town are a mixed bag, although a large percentage I either don't know or know them enough that I want nothing to do with them. It used to be such a nice little town, and to watch its decline over the past 20-30 years absolutely breaks my heart.

    Absolutely with broth. Occasionally I’ll add some veggies or onion.

    Forget the flavour packet and get some msg and chili crunch and fish sauce. Way tastier and way less salt.

    All in all everyone needs some Uncle Roger and MSG in their lives.

    And Auntie Ester.

    4/20 is tomorrow. @Misanthropic is getting started early. Does anyone indulge?

    What better way to celebrate The Day of Potsmoking then to continue the conversation about ramen and other terrible munchies. While we can all fancy up the top ramen any kind of way, I wanted to hear how it gets eaten in desperation in the darkness of midnight. @walt knows what up. Sprinkle it right on the noodles. Get it, girl!

    Happy Friday! Today is a good day. Beautiful spring is in the air, a pizza sandwich in the oven with garden spinach, and there's a brand spanking new dryer downstairs. Never ever buy Hotpoint. We got two lemons in a row.

    I have to be cautious about what kinds of junk food I have in the house, because I have zero self control.

    I made the mistake of trying white cheddar Cheetos several years ago, and now I need to limit myself to, like, 2 bags/year - 'lest I catch the diabeetus.

    My sister makes candy and gives me bags of dark chocolate covered gummy bears every year for Christmas. Fortunately, only for Christmas, because I'll eat a whole bag of those in a sitting, too.

    It's a good thing that, in my pot smoking days, I had an out-of-control metabolism and was biking 5 days/week.

    The existence of top ramen implies that there should be a bottom ramen. I'm not entirely sure I want to know that would entail.

    For the record, I pull the noodles out of the pan and cook the broth down to a thicker sauce and add the noodles back. I go with some of the crazier Asian ramens. I like having a place like Hmart close by.

    Don't forget, 4/20 is also Hitler's birthday, AND the anniversary of the Columbine Massacre!

    Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, stoners.

    I think you just described what a "bottom ramen" would entail

    This is my favorite depressing month. My dead mom’s birthday was Wednesday and next week is the anniversary of my brother’s death! Yay!

    We do ramen nights pretty frequently with a group of friends. Sometimes we go to the trouble of making our own broth but usually we just get decent frozen ramen from the Japanese grocery and have an array of stuff to put in. I’m team tantanmen with greens, sweet fried tofu, enoki mushrooms and a jammy egg. With LOTS of broth.

    Wow, Rebel Moon 2 managed to suck even harder than Rebel Moon 1.

    Zach Snyder needs to be, cold, a studio-contracted director. I’m talking ZERO artistic freedom whatsoever. You are no a visionary writer-producer, just film the fucking movie.
