Tell me again, why do I need one of these things?

hugh huh (twitch)
Mummyfrog is cooking the apple/blackberry pie (which sounds so good) and has just read the instructions. Put the foil case of pie and put it in the oven with a baking tray. Here comes the really wtf-inducing bit - "to ensure even cooking, turn the pie halfway through, rotating it not turning it upside down"

Honestly? Wtf enough for you?

[Went to bed to avoid brane earlier, came back and found it was hosting a "skins party" - ouch - and much with the heady hurty]

Reading fanfiction surprisingly enough.
  • My experience in cooking is that, truly, there is absolutely NO LIMIT to the stupidity people will go to. This includes anything food-related, e.g. shooting turkeys at airplane windscreens in an effort to test their resilience against bird strikes.

    Results are significantly improved in such tests by thawing the frozen turkeys first.
    • Some of this idiocy is truly disturbing. The Sunday paper was runnning a feature of "dumb answers on phone-ins" and even managed one from University Challenge (College Bowl, apparently) and they just make you... worry for the future of humanity.

      Oh, there are two:

      (back when dinosaurs roamed the earth)
      Bamber Gascoigne: What was Ghandi's first name?
      Contestant: Goosey?

      [there was also a team who would answer every question with marx, lenin or similar... this might show how old this is]

      (more recently)
      Paxman: What is another name for the "cherrypickers" and "cheesemongers"?
      Contestant: homosexuals
      Paxman: they are regiments of the British Army who will be very upset with you.

      Sheesh. Shades of pterry on that one. I think it was in for the comeback, really, not on the level of Paris being in Rome and the frustrated attempts of dj's trying to lead the contestant to the right answer are even scarier. "Did I hear you say Israel?" "No"

      Bafflement abounds.
  • Awesome. If you're oblivious enough to turn a pie upside down in the oven, you deserve to eat fallen-out burnt pie bits from the bottom of your oven, don't you think?
