For everyone that has been here for a while you know what this thread is all about. For those of you that are new to the OTT this thread is a thread for everyone to talk about anything that is on their mind as long as it is of course not a violation of the CoC. Please try and keep volitile disccusion out of this thread so as to not get it locked. Other than that feel free to kick back and talk about anything that is on your mind.

This is probably the 8th incarnation of this thread due to us talking to darn much. I could be wrong, but either way lets keep up our friendly conversations and continue to keep this sort of thread alive for everyone to enjoy.


I've got nothing to start the thread off with. Just got up and listening to morning talk radio while eating some ramen.

Resident Grouch and Corrupting Influence A Monster Appears I'm Black and Blue how 'bout you?

Ramen for breakfast? That's just weird.

*thinks about it*

Sounds tastey, and I haven't eaten yet even though I've been up for 4 hours.

*wanders off to see if there's ramen in the house*

My house is currently ramenless.

Made a couple peperoni and cheddar sandwiches instead.

Only way I'd eat ramen is if I skip the seasonings and put stuff like chicken in with the noodles.

Am I actually first?

Top or real ramen? And what radio? NPR? Music?


yes you are.

It's top ramen cooked on the stove rather than microwaved. tastes better that way.

Listening to a somewhat local talk show called Rob, Arnie and Dawn. They are on for 5 hrs in the morning from Monday to Friday and air in Sacramento CA, Reno NV, and Anchorage AK. I find it quite an entertaining show to listen too. One of the best things about it is that it is one of the only radio shows that is not prerecorded. It really shows in their ratings. they've been in 1st place forever and have been leading the second place show by a 3 to 1 margin.

And I say it shows in their ratings because it's just not entertaining to listen to something that is fake. It however can be entertaining listen to some friend tease and joke around with each other. ya know stuff and junk and all that jazz.

OK now I'm eating carrot cake (home made) and drinking some coffee.

Question: Does anyone else make ramen on the stove, drain the water, then add the seasoning, stir, and eat like spaghetti?

Just wondering if I'm odd ball or not since someone once told me that's not how you're supposed to eat ramen.

I used to eat it like that but after a while I stopped liking it like that.

Truth be told when you make it like that it's not really ramen anymore but instead just pasta with broth or whatnot. So becomes less an oriental dish and more a European style dish. Ramen is more like a soup and so without the water it's not really ramen.

Anyways I eat my ramen with water now.

Ah, I see. Well that makes sense. I still like it the "European" way better. I know its supposed to be a soup but I'm not big on soups. As far as Oriental, not a big fan of that either except I do like lo mein which some people don't consider Oriental either.

My favorite thing is to order sweet and sour chicken with lo mein instead of rice. MMMMM, good stuff, maynard.

If I'm allowed a little cross thread thing, I've never learned how to eat with chop sticks so I don't eat any Oriental dishes correctly anyway, lol.

<3 Ramen.

So I put the car up on ramps last night, and sprayed the O2 sensor clean with electrical cleaner. I also erased the trouble code that came up with it, so we'll see if it stays off.  If it does then I've saved myself 80 dollars and about an hour's worth of work this weekend.

I normally add extra spices and stuff to my ramen broth.  A little garlic powder, some seasoned salt, maybe some chile powder... that sort of thing.  I'll also throw in either some chicken or turkey, either leftovers from other stuff or deli meat.  And some frozen veggies.

It's good.

What's not good?  Being at work for four weeks now and still having my e-mail address contain a spelling error in my name.

I love those guys. I hate the woman's laugh. Actually let me clarify; I don't think the show would be the same w/o her but Arnie's suggestion of replacing her with a trafic pylon last year was one of his better ideas. Shame it never happened.


Yeah even though she's annoying as hell the show would suck if she wasn't there. I remember the pylon thing. funny stuff.

Oh wait by "that woman's laugh" are you talking about Brandon? ;) Seriously though I don't find her laugh annoying but rather the tone or attitude behind it most of the time.

Resident Grouch and Corrupting Influence A Monster Appears I'm Black and Blue how 'bout you?

She laughs like a horse, and once she starts it's usually an entire segment before she stops. Is Dawn would just take a breath once in a while they would have 4:1 ratings.


I can stand her laugh because at least when she's laughing she's not saying extremely stupid stuff. What annoys me more about her is how she never shuts up, and how that leads to her always interrupting rob and arnie while they're trying to talk. Man she's such an annoying person. And unfun.

Resident Grouch and Corrupting Influence A Monster Appears I'm Black and Blue how 'bout you?

They're at 2,058 reasons why Dawn is the least fun person.

I've been thinking about it but not sure. It would be nice to have some extra money but not sure if I actually want to do something productive while in school. But I might (take that with a grain of salt) get a part time job during this next year of classes.

The Council was consulted (apparently the council is just ZB, so this is an autoritarian regime, if not totalitarian). Webster told him that the old one was getting to big and a new one had to be made. ZB gave Dirtyfrank the honor.


That's because being the over sensitive founder of the WDYWTTA thread I throw a tantrum if someone else restarts it.

And yes it seems ZB is the council and ZB seems to have a higher power that talks to him from time to time about important things, such as when a thread gets too long.

That remineds me.  Last Friday me and the SO went out to a few furniture stores in town1, seeing if we could find a desk for him and a dresser for the bedroom.  In each proper store we ran into the same thing... we felt terribly out of place.  I was about ready to say "Yes, please show me your selection for poor college kids and divorced men" to the next salesperson we saw.

We ended up getting cheap stuff from Wally-World.

Also, I'm currently eating a bowl of ramen with a pair of chopsticks.

1It's so exciting to be in a town large enough to have even one dedicated furniture store, but multiple.  Still no Ikea though.  'pparently I'd have to head down to LA to find one of those.

Yup thats how I do it as well, although I ussually dont get all the water out so theres a little bit of broth in there at the bottom. I guess I could use a strainer or something but I can never find it when I need it, my wife always hides these things, she does it on purpose I tell you!

EDIT:

Rewatched the skit and it was gamecube, although I've always seen the xbox as the bro system. It's probably just the system they had on hand to shoot the video. gamecube is the system for kids so would probably be more the **** system so likely something you'd see on dateline's "to catch a predator".

Only way I'd eat ramen is if I skip the seasonings and put stuff like chicken in with the noodles.



 That's basically the beginnings of my "poor man's tuna casserole" recipe - I throw a can or two of tuna into the pot with two packages of ramen noodles and then add some diced onion and either some frozen peas or a can of mixed peas and carrots... I then add my own seasonings.
I actually have a serious supply of ramen from the last time I was unemployed, and should probably start working some of it into my food schedule to save some money.

 EE's next footnote should simply read, " 1This is an unnecessary footnote."

What they're talking about? Not ramen. Instant noodles. Interestingly, developed by a Japanese guy as emergency food supplies in case of disaster, such as the earthquakes the islands are prone to having.


If you want actual ramen, well... go to a ramen shop. The real deal is very good, and not so horrifically unhealthy.

Instant Noodles... I see those a lot. They are indeed among the cheapest foodstuffs I've seen, coming in at like 11e for a 40pack. So what is Ramen exactly? A sort of soup with noodles?

The Ramen that I see on Wikipedia actually looks kinda tasty :P

Oh I certainly eat Noodles... but not the instant kind. I make my own, much more tasty that way.

And if you can't take 15 minutes to make some really good, tasty and healthy Noodles then you're missing out on something.
