They have one of those Melting Pot restaurants at the mall in Providence. For raw meat that gets cooked in broth, I go straight to phở. But that chocolate is something I could get behind!

Instead of "somesuch" I usually would use, "the like." As in: Use 100% Organic or all-natural, and not Purdue or the like. And as I am a heathen, I will probably make this with Perdue or the like at some point. Until I get a chicken farm of my own, or a generous chicken farming neighbor.

I like "suchlike" and I'd never heard of "somesuch," but I think we do need words to convey intentional ambiguity that is also easily understandable. It's important how they are used, not that they exist. Obviously, overuse is a problem. But here I am seeing a decent use that is absolutely clear to me.

Looks good. I will have to try it now. I don't understand why we don't use scales for measuring things like salt. It's not as though an electronic scale is expensive. It's a lot cheaper than most good kitchen equipment and a lot smaller. I have a tiny scientific one I use mostly for coffee and for baking. Anyhow, thanks for the technique!

I don't think there's anything you can do, except to be alert. And I think you know what would have happened if you and Andy hadn't come to their aid. Thank goodness for you two!

Right on about people who are comfortable in their mathematical illiteracy. I try to call that out whenever I hear it. I'm studying to be a researcher in mathematics education; we're applying science not only to how people learn mathematics, but what their relationship is with mathematics, including attitudes toward mathematical literacy. I agree with a lot of what you say here, but we do need better mathematics education. A motivated individual is a powerful part of that equation. I hope your frustration passes soon. I'll try to do my part for science and math. Cheers.
Look at all those beautiful, smiling faces! Wonderful.
