Food

Post by richmond62 » Sun Sep 27, 2020 1:40 pm

A LiveCode programmer cannot die from hunger even if their fridge is empty.

They can survive on all the food hiding between the keys of their keyboard for at least a week.

What is a programmer?
– An organism that turns caffeine and fast food into software.

That explains why I not really a programmer: I never, ever eat fast food.

Stick to what my wife and I cook at home. 8)

My wife cooks very good potato chips (not crisps), and I sometimes cook chips made from sweet potato, carrots and turnips.
I always cook chips in ghee as the taste is fantastic.

Heh, the chips I'm thinking of don't get cooked (at home) :D

Pretty much my idea of 'fast food', open a bag, done :twisted:

Those are not chips, those are crisps.

These are chips:

Huh, I always thought the european version of chips were the fatter flatter fried (or baked) potatoes, like these -

Your image (fries), I'd never have come up with 'chips', since they don't resemble any other chip I ever saw. Sticks maybe, but chips? Never would have gotten there heh.

Other things I don't get would include spanner, lorry, the list is nearly endless :twisted:

What a strange world it would be if we all agreed on decimal points, paper sizes, pints and gallons (litres don't have an alternative measure afaik), dd/mm and mm/dd date ordering, and... pretty much EVERYTHING. (Not even getting as far as languages and writing systems themselves - in any event, there's enough variance just in English to boggle the brain.)

But Richmond's chips are definitely chips.

Don't get me wrong, I assume what Richmond posted is what passes for chips there, I was just pointing out that I always thought they were more like my picture heh.

I agree with bogs. I always thought the English version of chips were what we call potato wedges.

Then there are other chips like "silicon chips" and "cow chips" :D

...and the one thing that almost all of those have in common is that they are all (usually) semi-flattened and spread out...

You Europeans better get on the ball over there, and start naming your stuff after something it may resemble :twisted:

Thick chips are usually disambiguated using the terms 'chip shop' or 'chippy', as they tend to be what you get in Fish & Chips establishments. Sometimes thin chips are called fries, but generally if you see the word chips on a menu you probably have to ask how thick they're going to be.

That's the sort of question I tend to ask when someone rings up and wants to send their kids to my EFL school. 8)
