To take a brief break from joking and be serious for a second... anyone who thinks that American food is only corn dogs or McDonald's simply doesn't know what they're talking about. American cuisine actually is among the best in the world. Tons of great stuff from California, Texas, New Orleans, Boston, Chicago, New York, Maine, and all parts in between. Such a rich fusion of so many different cultures. Some horror stories from the Iowa State Fair aside, it's a foodie paradise.

If myoglobin is red it is because of the red blood cells that are usually carried in the blood by haemoglobin before being taken in by the myoglobin, that is what Black Pudding is made of, that and colourless plasma, platelets, albumin etc.

^ someone responded to my above comment with a complaint that I was bragging. I'm not. There was a lengthy exchange that got deleted including what I thought was an illustrative anecdote about why it is I think people assume I am bragging when I'm only relating stories from my own life experience.
I won't type the whole thing out again but I wanted to reiterate the two bits of advice my posts contained.
1. if reading my posts bothers you, stop reading them. I'm not posting to bother or impress you.
2. if my comments about traveling or living anywhere seems like a brag to you, maybe you should travel more yourself. I've met so many people of limited means or from poor countries who have been traveling around the world for virtually nothing. It's not as difficult and doesn't have to be as expensive as you probably think. Stop making excuses and do it. Then you won't have to resent people who have.

The Rugby World Cup is held every 4 years; here's 4 minutes of highlights from the 2015 final. For those more used to American Football, 2 main differences: all your passes must be to a man behind you, and to score a try (ie, a touchdown), you actually have to touch the ball onto the ground!

Notes: Black widows venom is not lethal to a human. If left untreated (no antivenom) for around 3 weeks, amputation may be called for because the venom will kill off a small region of cells and tissue. Unless it bites around the spine, neck or head, it is not fatal. Even in these dire circumstances, antivenom within a day should minimalise further injury. Also: Extortion is not the same as blackmail. Blackmail is threatening direct or indirect harm for a gain, however, blackmail is usually the release of incriminating or embarrassing information, where extortion involves threats to damaging of assets, friends, family or your person. For this reason, I had difficulty getting these answers with these incorrect clues.

I'll kick myself in the morning for agreeing with Kalbahamut, but when he's correct, you've got to give hi his due. English food tastes horrible to those who are used to some spice/seasoning in their food. It seems the only spice used in English cuisine is salt (If you can call that a spice and not a preservative).
+2
level 49
Dec 6, 2017
I personally think that there are two contradicting ideas of how to make good food. One way is to dump seasonings (not only spices, I mean, sauces, salt, sugar, etc) to create blended flavours. Another way is to season as least as possible and let the natural tastes of ingredients mix together. Those who familiar with seasonings will say food from the latter is bland, and those who familiar with natural tastes will say food from the former is overseasoned or burning (in case of spices). I embrace both ways, personally.
+1
level 38
Feb 19, 2018
To each his own. It's a matter of taste/culture. I am used to highly spiced food (not sauces) which is broiled, baked or sauteed (frying does not enhance the taste of food at all). Therefore, I find British food bland and boring.
+2

English food might not be particularly sophisticated, but it is inaccurate to say that it is all bland. English mustard, horse radish sauce or proper pickled onions will bring tears to your eyes. Then there's Worcestershire sauce, real cheddar cheese (not the mass-produced candle-wax often sold as cheddar), stilton - and don't forget our love of curry (remember that the English don't love spices because we went to India - we went to India because we loved spices).
