Do You Remember

If you are over forty or remember cooking in the “stoneage” (pre-microwave) I ran across this hack on popcorn that left both Taki and me in stitches. If you want further entertainment read the feedback on the “this is stupid” trackbacks!

One suggestion to improve your hack Kottke, instead of stirring the popcorn try placing a lid over the pot and lightly shaking the pot back and forth over the burner to prevent burning and UFOs. This particular method also works well over campfires!!! LOL

I just found out that the Japanese writing that I so painstakingly translated for the Weekly Hogen☺ section doesn’t translate properly on my Japanese cell phone. Even though I used the Japanese IME for the written translation, all that appears on the Japanese cell phone is a bunch of garbledy goop. Trying to get the foreign written language to display properly is only one frustrating aspect of computing and being a native English language speaker in Japan. Why can’t the developers of computer languages agree upon one universal language so it translates properly no matter what system a person is using?
