Hey @koteeq

Any update?

I like ceviche. And some people freak out because it contain raw fish… And yet it’s normal for me.

I’ve never understood what it is or had an opportunity to learn/try it… raw fish and something with citric acid?.. it’s raw but it’s not?

Either way I’m sure I’d eat it without much hesitation
I love me some sushi… so raw fish isn’t even remotely concerning to me

Now you got me thinking… I grew up fishing and eating panfish (bluegill perch crappie)… by no means a high end fish… but something I’ve always enjoyed

… I wonder if some sushi could be made with this…

As I understand… “sushi grade” fish isn’t really a thing, and it’s more of a marketing thing… but I’d want to be safe either way…

Food for thought… (pun intended)

Lime juice chemically cooks it, you see it change from clear to white after 15minutes or so and it has coconut cream too. So good!

Or lemon juice, Very common / popular in the pacific islands

Edit
It occurs to me… I refuse to eat coconut because it’s gross…

But I’m about to eat a desiccated scorpion for shits and giggles…

Like I’m always saying, the lines we draw are weird sometimes

Cream or Coconut Milk !!!

Imagine diving in the warm clear tropical waters off Papua New Guinea, catching some crayfish ( Rock Lobster ) and the person in the boat has been fishing catching a variety of fish.

Heading back in with your days catch, covering the meat with Lime Juice, prepping the herbs and vege getting fresh coconut, making and eating a feast from your catch a couple of hours earlier, but politely declining the Betel Nut :face_vomiting:

or doing similar in Fiji, Tonga, Samoa and a couple of other island countries with slightly different ingredients, and of course other places, like Tahiti, but in a restaurant, exactly the same dish, just much more expensive and probably not quite as fresh

Are you still out? It is really good…:shallow_pan_of_food: :coconut: :lemon: :fish:

Ironically, For some reason, unbeknown to me ( I am now about to google ) Scorpion :scorpion: tastes slightly fishy :fish: , BUT I have only had it in Thailand, so it might just be the way theirs tastes or how they season it ( although I never saw them add seasoning ) , I also had roasted / fried Crickets, they taste nicer with a slightly nutty flavour

I didn’t find any definitive answers, I have my own ideas but there does seem to be almost a consensus on the taste across the board

The answer is: shrimp/lobster/crawfish. that is what they taste like.

You mean craw-dads

Aren’t scorpions technically crustaceans also?

Down the hatch btw, uneventful and crunchy

Important distinction, which makes less sense… I enjoy coconut water/milk… and I’ll eat fresh coconut meat…

But you put coconut in anything… and I’m out

9V tester on the end

Spring loaded arm to “squeeze” button and Coin Cells

Or between the arm for aaa,aa, C, D

an 18650 would fit in, but I would only use the meter if I swapped out the LEDs for a V meter

And yeah, without opening it up, there looks to be enough space for a small voltmeter.

I realized I pillaged my old coin cell tester voltmeter for my old electric Skateboard remote, but whatever, just picture yours, but not as tidy inside and a project box rather custom 3D printed ( yours is awesome and tidy by the way )

It’s hard to make predictions - something I learned in early 1990 when our history teacher gave us an assignment on the then “tensions in Iraq” and I predicted after a very thoroughly researched 25-page dissertation that the US would never take on the 2-million-strong Iraqi army. Fortunately, I got my grade before it did.

This is from The Daily Mail, best described by Dan & Dan if you are not British.

You were/are so right. Drinking one right now, absolutely delicious. I can see why it’s such a popular drink. It still has plenty of flavor from the whiskey (bourbon in my case), while taking away a lot of the harshness that I was having trouble with.

It’s hard to see due to my blue tumbler, but there’s a nice frothy head from the egg white, and a nice cloudy yellow interior.

I’ve been loving all of the cocktails I’ve made with egg white, the texture is just so good. I’ve liked everything I’ve made with lemon juice so far too, I love lemon and sour stuff in general, and it really masks the alcohol taste itself.

So far my favorite drink I’ve made overall was a Tom Collins I made yesterday. It was super super good, just gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup, topped in a glass with seltzer. I hadn’t had gin before, it was a great introduction. It’s super citrusy, with a ton of tang, while still being super easy to drink. Absolutely no alcohol taste.

I also made a Ramos gin fizz yesterday, and that was a challenge. So much shaking, my arms and fingers started to hurt from the cold + the weight. The texture was insane though, so much fizz, almost like meringue. The taste was super creamy, reminded me of lime yogurt. Really liked it, don’t know if I’d make it again due to the effort.

Hey all, I’m looking for a special kind of drill bit that I saw as a kid… I think. Basically it’s a super tiny but super long drill bit that you drill through the floor with next to something like a wall outlet so you can climb under the floor and basically see where the drill bit is located so you can drill a larger hole like an inch over so you’re inside the wall when you drill that hole.

What is that kind of thing called? Is it just a standard drill bit of a certain diameter and length?

Looks like they’re sometimes called feeler bits:

Made out of spring steel, the reviews aren’t good though.

I found a few threads recommending this method for that purpose:

Just uses a wire coat hanger, a nice cheap method.

Lastly, there’s these, which are used for that purpose, but they’re a bit less flexible:

I’ve seen them in different lengths, this one is 36 inches.

(this one is thinner, so a bit more flexible, but half the length)

Nice! I was able to find a 16th inch bit… just under 2mm diameter…

Stop that. You’ll only encourage them.
