"Blaming the internet for your gullibility is like blaming a screwdriver for your neurological defects."

No idea where I found this, but I liked it enough to write it down. If you know the origin, please let me know.

I am amazed and saddened by the number of beginner bakers I see in forums saying that their bread tasted fantastic but didn't rise enough, or didn't have giant holes, or didn't a shiny crust, or whatever.

Just eat it.

Bread porn too has a lot to answer for.

It is extremely regrettable and demoralising that robbers and the élite agree on just one thing-- living in hiding.

I’ve been getting myself in a right old muddle about taste lately. Not music or architecture -- well, not entirely -- but gustatory taste, the taste of food. Of course, we all acknowledge that taste is subjective. 1/6

Chicken Skin Music is truly balm for the soul on an afternoon that feels weird for reasons I cannot put my finger on.

Today I happened across two wiseacres on Twitter -- and no I am not going to bother with a link -- who make me glad I am able to say nothing, there, in return. Turning off RTs doesn't help either, when people will insist on quote RTs when they have nothing of substance to add.

I fully endorse this proposal.

I'm prompted to note that the sounds our kettle makes depend on how recently it has been de-scaled, and I have no idea why that should be so. Our water is very hard, so I have observed this often, and it mystifies me.

I think it is a splendid idea to revisit indiewebify.me and reorient the expectations around that page. It does suggest that one fiddle with HTML, and that might well be off-putting if one is new to IndieWeb.
