    chr|s sedition:
    katdaley:It's gettin' to be that time of year again folks! I'm posting this up early so we can have as many people as possible attend! August 14th is the date. It's a really fun time to meet with old friends and new. Prepare to bring and share nomz, make inappropriate jokes and enjoy the lovely weather at Castle Island.

    And as required, here is that photo of Eric from the first one:

    -14

    That was one of the kick-off posts for the 3rd annual. It is indeed "about that time" again. Is it time for the 4th Annual???
    And that was from the 4th.

    So it seems like people want it to happen.

    June 16th, 2pm – ????


    sound good?

    Location???:

    May: I'd think the next few weekends (in May) is too soon for a critical mass (no pun intended). 3rd week in May is Memorial Day, and I suggest it NOT be that weekend. That pushes us into June.

    June: I suggest June 1 just, well, because. Any weekend in June works, more or less.

    July: Too far out, IMHO.

    As to day, I'd suggest a Sunday afternoon. 2pm til done. Should try to get the Wednesday Social Ride crew in on this, too.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    seanile mick:google alcoholic whipped cream

    So, basically it doesn't work, at least if you want to make it at home (which I was assuming here) with anything more than a tablespoon or so or liquor; the resulting emulsion isn't stable enough (which is what I was getting at). You can have it from a pressurized can apparently, which is stabilized by all that "food science" shit.

    Thanks for the advice though, prolly couldn't have figured that out if you hadn't told me to google it.unstuck in time

    Not gonna lie. I might have that can over my fridge. For fucks sake is it that old? I need to throw it out....

    I describe it like this: Imagine really good whipped cream, nearly high quality. And imagine that infused with smirnoff.... That's what it tastes like. It works. It's non-dairy, so it doesnt need to be refrigerated (which is scary). It is a pressurized can. You can also make your own pressurized whipped cream if you have fancy cans.EPIC!

    Well, 'chemicals' is a bit of a misnomer (as in water, ethanol, salt, etc are all 'chemicals') so no, not really.unstuck in time

    If they haven't checked the thread, it's not going to get more orange for them just because you moved it to the top of the stickies.
    If they have checked the thread and not filled out your survey, it's safe to assume they're not going to click it just because you insist they do.

    Totally random, but after looking at google maps near the castle park...I found these two very large squares submerged underwater just to the right at coordinates : 42.331297,-71.006619 . Dunnno what it is

    point is maps are awesome. Anyone in here have experience with cartography?

    there's a couple over to the east, just north of fort revere too. then two in hull bay. and one by webb memorial state park.
    so i think it's something to do with how the satellite images are spliced together.somebody turn the lights off on this place already.
