On Fries, In Order

You must have some amazing recipe for oven fries, because I've never seen a batch that wasn't a crime against potatoes.

On My Ambitious Attempt To Make Puerto Rican Pasteles

That is heroic. I could never skin a garbanzo bean. I didn't know that they had skin. Can I just have one of yours? There are still about thirty in your freezer, right?

On 'Atlas Shrugged': Who Is John Galt's Chiropractor?

The part that's still leftover from my embarrassing Objectivist adolescence is the atheism. It was a disadvantage to be a libertarian who listened to Rachmaninov and read Victor Hugo at 16 (Jesus what was I even, argh) but it was nice to have all the big questions about God out of the way. And for all her nonsense Rand explains it in a way a that a kid can understand: the universe operates according to its own rules, those rules are knowable, there's no such thing as hobbits or Jesus, etc. Kids these days can just skip straight to Christopher Hitchens though.

On 'Atlas Shrugged': Who Is John Galt's Chiropractor?

@19centuryman How about 1984, and to a (much) lesser extent Brave New World?

On 'Atlas Shrugged': Who Is John Galt's Chiropractor?

@Bittersweet Rush sings about Ayn Rand:

Live for yourself -- there's no one else
More worth living for
Begging hands and bleeding hearts will
Only cry out for more

Well, I know they've always told you
Selfishness was wrong
Yet it was for me, not you, I
Came to write this song

On The United States, In Order Of Their Contribution To American Music

@Reginal T. Squirge What of the Samples?! Are you trying to say that all Colorado culture is terrible jam bands? I grew up in Loveland, and I can confirm that it is true. However, if this doesn't move you then I fear for your soul: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-HJU4oF8jg

On A Ton of Long Things You Can Start Watching on Netflix Now!

The original Girl With Dragon Tattoo trilogy is up there.

El Bulli: Cooking in Progress is an absolutely gorgeous food documentary, and a lot more fun to watch that Jiro Dreams of Sushi. (I bet it was a lot more fun to eat there, too.)

Also, have you never seen Breaking Bad, you lucky so-and-so? This could be your best hurricane ever, at least until the power goes out.
