Pah. Bloody amateurs.

Pork Chops With Mustard-Cornichon Sauce
(Cornichons are tiny brine-packed French pickles, available at specialty foods stores and some supermarkets.)

2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 1-inch-thick pork loin rib chops (about 12 ounces each)
1/2 cup water
1 large shallot, minced (about 3 tablespoons)
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons minced cornichons* (about 4)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley

Melt 1 tablespoon butter with 1 tablespoon oil in each of 2 heavy large skillets over medium heat. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper. Add 3 chops to each skillet and sauté until lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side. Cover skillets and cook until thermometer inserted into center of chops registers 145°F, about 9 minutes. Transfer chops to warm platter; tent with foil to keep warm.

Add half of water, shallot, and garlic to each skillet. Cook until shallot is soft, scraping up any browned bits, about 2 minutes. Add any juices from chops. Whisk in cornichons and mustard. Season with salt and pepper. Pour over chops. Sprinkle chops with parsley.

You can actually substitute cranberries for the cornichons, but any french people in the near vicinity will have instant heart attacks.
If you're old enough, have a nice pinot grigio or burgundy with it. Yum.

No, ef, they really are not. My school in Germany (FLSH Gaibach), as a matter of fact, was a private boarding school (Gymnasium) where rich people could send their troubled kids. We had kids get expelled for stealing cars, knife fights, assaulting teachers, etc. It's pretty normal to rebel and do stupid things.

I got arrested twice, once for being a public nuisance (spring break), once for shoplifting. Got off with fines both times.
I had to do 100 hours of community service for reckless driving.
And the usual that i didn't get caught for: drugs, underage drinking, much shoplifiting, vandalism, a bit of breaking and entering (backyard poolhopping), software piracy, etc.
I'm reformed now. Really.

This is not a new thought, but why not have an all-drugs olympics? See what can be done through the power of chemistry, as long as there is a parallel drug-free olympics.
I'm sure the pharmaceutical industry would be more than happy to sponsor it, as long as everyone keeps the drug-related complications ten years later hush-hush.

Luxemburg is the European equivalent of the Cayman Islands. It's an offshore banking haven, it's no wealthier than Belgium or Holland. The wealthiest nation in the world, per capita, would probably be the Vatican, closely followed by Monaco.

I just finished reading 'Atonement' by Ian McEwan. Very well written (if you like revisionist psychology).
I tried reading 'M: The Man who became Caravaggio' by Peter Robb, but it was a piece of crap. It's amazing someone could screw up a book about a crazy homosexual painter who hung around thieves and whores and was killed in a duel before he was 40.
Currently working on 'John Adams' by David McCullough, which is a bit fluffy, but he weaves a nice story.

I'd say it's a toss-up between 'Maya the Bee' (Mitsubachi Maya no Boken) and 'Captain Future'. But i only saw the german dubs, mind you.

I understand transparent solar panels have been produced and are being perfected. So it's not too too far-fetched to someday have a lightbulb that could reclaim some of the power it expends.

Has anyone ever made a comparison test between, say, tomatoes from the supermarket compared to tomatoes grown in your back yard/porch/window sill (assuming you're not using salmon/tomato hybrid plants)?
The worst part about this whole GM thing is the total lack of flavor that comes with it. You get huge fruits/veggies/berries/whatever, but they all tast like crunchy waterlogged cardboard.

The best way to crash a Mac frequently and repeatedly is to upgrade its system software. Takes a while to iron out the kinks.
