not sure what you mean by web 2.0 but I hit twitter every morning for a quick scan of the news, feedly for the blogs I want to read, and tumblr is a distraction for my increasingly fractured mind. I think of tumblr as a glossy magazine where I flip through the pages. - MoTO: #TeamMarina

Last night I learnt that Americans don't usually like sauce on their steak... Or butter the bread in a sandwich... Is this true?
Yes to both - for me, anyway. Had quite a shock learning what a bacon butty was. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
So if I made a tomato sandwich (white buttered bread with sliced tomato and a little salt) would this get me weird looks? - Johnny from iPhone
i make tomato sandwiches like that with mayonnaise instead of butter. - kendrak
If the steak is a really good cut of meat, and it's cooked & seasoned properly, then I won't use any sauce. But I have a hard time believing Americans don't like sauce on their steak - what's your definition of sauce? Barbecue, Worcestershire sauce, or...? As for buttering the bread in a sandwich, I don't know that you'd get weird looks, but you might if you buttered your bread then added another condiment, such as mayonnaise. - Corinne L
Do you aussies have miracle whip for meat and cheese sandwiches? - Joe
Corinne... I do. Bread and butter is the base then stuff like mayo gets added on. Joe, no. - Johnny from iPhone
The steak thing doesn't sound right to me, at least for the south and midwest. It's pretty rare to not see someone putting A1, BBQ sauce, Tabasco, or somesuch on their steak, if it comes without a sauce. Also, you do your sandwiches like Uli does. But no, I don't know any Americans who use butter as the base. We tend to start with mayo, mustard, ketchup, and/or pickle relish, depending on the sandwich. - Kirsten
We usually use just mayo by itself - either one provides a good fat barrier (so the bread doesn't get soggy from other ingredients.) The sauce thing isn't uncommon, but it doesn't feel like something everyone does one way or the other. I prefer it without in most cases, but like it sometimes. - Jennifer Dittrich
Depends on the cut. I like some A1 or worcester sauce on sirloin. Mayo and mustard for sandwiches. - Rodfather
I would have said that no sauce is the usual. - Steele Lawman
Don't tell anyone else, but I like to put ketchup (or catsup) on my steak. - Joe
Most sandwich places will put in butter only if you ask for it. - Bruce Lewis
A sandwich is a butter delivery system. No butter and it's not a proper sandwich! - Marina's Godmother :-)
Oh see, Helen, that's butter-bread (as it's called in my family, at least). A snack, sure. But not a sandwich. - Kirsten
Buttered bread for sandwiches: Rare, I think (certainly not for me--horseradish sauce or chipotle, depending on the meat). Sauce on steaks: All over the place, but the better the steak, the less likely the sauce, at least for me. - Walt Crawford
My ex-husband was a butter-then-mayo sandwich person until I said to him, "do you realize you're adding a lot of calories doing it that way?" Never crossed his mind because it was the way he was raised (he was from central Pennsylvania & his mom was Pennsylvania Dutch, which may have had a lot to do with it). - Corinne L
I don't generally put butter on sandwiches (unless it's the outside of a grilled cheese sandwich). Usually it's mustard or the like, depending on the other sandwich contents. I don't generally have sauce with steak unless the steak is really dry or tough. I will eat butter on toast or on bread that I eat alongside a meal. - John (bird whisperer)
I'm convinced that this is why a true Aussie restaurant/cafe in the States wouldn't work. There are tiny fundamentals that would shock a lot of folks but the culture isn't exotic enough for people to embrace it. - Johnny
my mom used to put butter underneath the mayo but then she started worrying even more about dad's health. <threadjack> had a "club" sandwich in UAE in a British bar. so not what I had in mind. It was weird and disappointing. - Christina Pikas
A bacon-based sandwich in the UAE? - Johnny
Johnny, I think you could have an authentic cafe, but not a chain restaurant. Those, by nature, smooth out the edges of any cuisine (even American dishes) so it isn't quite what it started as. - Jennifer Dittrich
oh yeah there and Bahrain - not really observant. when I was there. - Christina Pikas
What Jenn said. Americans love to claim they have had authentic [insert cuisine type here] at some obscure restaurant. - Corinne L
I now butter my sandwiches but that's because I'm attached to someone of British extraction. - Sarah from iPhone
I just looked up the menu for Outback Steakhouse. I literally can't. - Johnny
Oh, yeah. I can't imagine that's anyone's native cuisine. - Jennifer Dittrich
No bloomin onion? - Joe
No. - Johnny
Heh. I never really thought of Outback as a place to eat Australian cuisine. It's just where they give you a fat piece of steak and a huge gob of mashed potatoes. - Rodfather
The fact they have opened Outback Steakhouses here in Australia should tell you all you need to know ;) - Johnny
Heh, totally reminds me of the random Taco Bell restaurants you see in Mexico. - Jennifer Dittrich
I'm a mustard-only person when it comes to sandwiches, though as a child, my favorite sandwich was peanut butter and butter. When it comes to steaks - I guess I'd have to ask what your definition of steak sauce is. Are you talking like a brown sauce or a BBQ sauce? Or do you mean something like bordelaise or au poivre? Because depending on the type of cuisine under which I'm ordering my... more... - Hookuh Tinypants
I tend to marinade my steaks so they don't usually call for any sauce after the fact. But I haven't heard of buttering the bread of a sandwich...might have to try that >.> - Chris Topher
I might also clarify, it's only a small amount of butter. More like a scraping than a thick layer ala mayo - Johnny
I'm beginning to be a fan of rub. I used this stuff on some filet mignon and it was awesome. http://store.tomdouglas.com/mushroo... - Rodfather
#random The closest I got to Miracle Whip in London was "salad cream," but it's not the same. I do love me some HP Sauce, though. - The First NoeLB from Android
My favourite steak sauces are chilli and lime, mushroom, blue cheese, sweet chilli, creamy pepper sauce and sometimes sweet caramelised onion. If I have a good piece of steak then I tend to go plain but a good balanced sauce in combination with the sides can bring up the whole plate. - Johnny
OK so you're talking proper sauces and not just bottled crap made by Heinz. :D This is why I love you. - Hookuh Tinypants
We have that too, but that's usually only used on the cheap cuts that end up on steak sangas or at BBQs on plastic plates :) - Johnny
I still love you. - Hookuh Tinypants
Caramelized onion? Oh, yes! - The First NoeLB from Android
I never heard of butter and mayo together on a sandwich until this one time in Canada. I got off the 401 at a small town somewhere between Toronto and Detroit, found a small sandwich shop, and ordered a ham and cheese sandwich. She took a slice of bread, spread something pale colored on it, then asked me if I wanted mayo. !!! I'm thinking, that wasn't mayo? So I said yes, and then she added mayo on top on what turned out to be butter. - bentley
(silently judges Joe for the ketchup thing) - Marie
I put a patty of butter on my steaks as I grill them. I like sauce on my steak too but then I'm sorta addicted to mashed potatoes and gravy so its more collateral. #gravyoneverythng Butter with mayo is just weird. Butter or mayo slathered on heavy and thick.... #okaymaybeitsjustme - WarLord
I need Melly in on this thread #Alone - Johnny
Butter on a sandwich brings back some middle school memories from when I lived with my mother. She would pack me lunches of salami & cheese sandwiches with butter instead of some other normal type of condiment on it, because she doesn't like mayo or mustard and refuses to buy any. - April Russo
No to either one for me. Why ruin a good steak with sauce of any kind? People in this part of the country (Southeastern Pennsylvania) often butter their bread for sandwiches if they are from a Pennsylvania Dutch background. - Friar Will
Butter on sandwiches is reserved for necessity (PB&J, needs it to help reduce the tacky starchness of the peanut butter and you can't do a proper Grilled Cheese without using butter to fry it), otherwise not really. Sauces, sometimes if the meat isn't great or wasn't already seasoned well, which could be with chili and lime or a good pepper baste. Caramelized onions don't count as a sauce. - NOT THE CRICKET
Cubano sandwiches need butter on them. - Steven Perez
Growing up, the only sandwiches I had with butter were tuna fish with diced pickles. Random, I know. I used A1 on steaks until I learned that it's a waste of a good piece of steak to sully it with steak sauce. I've had a few proper sauces on steak that were pretty good. The norm at steak houses in the US is to get a "plain" steak (marinated and seasoned) and have a few bottles of steak... more... - Jenny H. from Android
"Bread with stuff on it" is still one of the best phrases ever. :D Also - an excellent use for A1 sauce? Tater tots. Yes, I'm a heathen but I'm totally down with it. (C'mon, I'm the person who once stored their russet potatoes in the ice chest while camping; I've earned the right to be a potato heathen!) - Hookuh Tinypants
Depends on the quality of the steak. A good quality well cooked steak needs sauce like Dolly Parton needs stocking stuffers. - Todd Hoff

Face it, man. Money trumps freedom. #CapitalismFTW
It's not about freedom, anyway. Sony is "free" to choose whether or not to distribute the film(s), and the theaters are "free" to choose whether or not to show it. They are exercising their freedom, even if the people wanting to see the films don't like their decision. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed
It's freedom being trumped by fear at the expense of money. I don't see how Sony are choosing money over freedom. You could say that the money from any possible lawsuits but that's still fear. - Johnny
Exactly. Fear of losing money. If they knew releasing it would make billions of dollars even if people died, you know they totally would. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
A Seth Rogen and James Franco movie grossing a billion dollars? Yeah, ok. I see. - Johnny
Also, Sony pulled the film's theatrical release after the theaters said they wouldn't show it. Even if it did make a billion (how ever straw man that is), the theaters would only see a fraction of that, not to mention putting their staff in the line of fire. If the theater owners still said yes, this would be released next week. - Johnny
From Salon: I guess the answer was foreordained, but like so much that happens in America these days, it’s an answer that reveals our tremendous weakness and spectacular cowardice, our hilarious and pathetic tendency to resemble the proverbial elephant cringing before a mouse - WarLord
My point exactly. Sony is not going to make money if no theater is showing it, and a lot of theaters don't want to show it because of the risk of liability and because they think the threats will keep people away from all of the movies they're showing. Ergo, fear of losing money. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
"If even 5 percent of nervous parents kept the family home on Christmas, every holiday blockbuster would have taken a hit." http://m.laweekly.com/publics... - Victor Ganata from iPhone
"The truth is, America's commitment to free speech is dwarfed by our commitment to capitalism. Seth Rogen can stand in his house and say anything he wants about Kim Jong-un – but Sony has the choice to fund him, and even if it agrees, AMC can still pull the plug. The corporation, not the individual, has always had the power to decide what movie is a thoughtcrime. We're just only now visibly seeing the suits flex their clout." - Victor Ganata from iPhone

DRM Protection Removed for… Coffee? - http://hackaday.com/2014...
Keurig, the manufacturer of a single-serve coffee brewing system, has a very wide following amongst coffee drinkers. Their K-cup (pre-packaged coffee grounds with a coffee filter, all in a plastic container) is an interesting concept and makes brewing a single cup of coffee much more efficient over making a whole pot. Their newer line of coffee makers, the Keurig 2.0, has some interesting (and annoying) security features though, which [Kate Gray] has found an interesting and simple way around.

The right is coming for your birth control — they just don’t want you to know it yet http://www.salon.com/2014... via @Salon
The right is not publicly demanding that birth control be subject to the same regulation as abortion because to do so would be a political mess. But the logic of their argument demands precisely this. If it’s a question of “protecting life” and not, say, control over women’s lives and bodies or a cynical attempt to gut a healthcare law, then wouldn’t the SBA List’s drive to criminalize abortion trump any political calculus about when to express its belief that birth control is abortion and when to keep quiet? - WarLord

The failings of the torture regimen were, in fact, every conservative nightmare of a failed, out-of-control government program come to life.

In all the stories of American POWs and detainees who endured torture either as revenge or interrogation there are few instances where real useful "actionable" information even under extremely painful circumstance Most stories from WW2 involve soldiers spoofing questioners with false stories.

From Torturing to Killing Innocent People: This Is Who We Are http://huff.to/1AaMgDc via @HuffPostPol
President Obama claimed that some of the actions that were taken (note past tense), were contrary to our values. What seems to be lost on the President is that values are not something one professes; values are established through one's actions. Under the Bush administration, torture was systematic, brutal, widespread, and patently illegal - WarLord
We know from the torture report, innocent people were detained and tortured. We also know that innocent people have been killed by President Obama's drone strike program. Perhaps it was overlooked or maybe it was simply ignored, but the UK-based human rights NGO Reprieve published a report at the end of November. Reprieve investigated the numerous attempts to kill individuals labeled high-value targets. Its findings demonstrate the moral depravity of President Obama's drone strike program. - WarLord

Is shale oil is leveraged with CDOs?
Dark market hedges in the form of futures contracts mostly. It's a commodity so derivatives would not work the same way as bundling debt. - Eric Logan

RT @libyaliberty: "Does torture work?" as a question needs to be put in the bin with "Is slavery commercially feasible?" & "Can genocide help overpopulation?"
But slavery was commercially feasible! It was perfect capitalism. Wages/costs as some rounding error of zero with productivity at 100% or we beat you until you exceed your quota every day... Slavery was such a fantastic model that businesses attempt to replicate it at every turn See Amazon but really best model is mega plantation of Walmart... #slaveryisnotjusthistory - WarLord

It's a calming listening to the taxi driver drone on in his native language while a train clatters overhead as he turns near the March Mart.

The possible link between celibacy and Catholic priest pedophilla would mean something if the rate was different from non-celibate people.
I was thinking it might lead to more a Thornbirds kind of situation if anything. (I'm from the 80s) - Eric - ill subliminal from iPhone
My problem is it's another possible case of the Church blaming a situation for priests turning to pedophila, not the fact that they're pedophiles. - Johnny
I mean, there are countless married and unmarried sexually active men who are pedophiles and there are countless married and unmarried men who have forced celibacy who aren't pedophiles. Pedophiles are pedophiles, the circumstances be damned. - Johnny
I don't think priesthood in and of itself after all see Boy Scouts - WarLord
Right, no forced celibacy there and pedophilia exists. I get a giant weasley vibe from this "report" - Johnny
