    Her videos have gone from smart, witty, and interesting to just kind of desperate and annoying.

    Wait, what?
    Y`all are jealous of her active brain! lolz!

    @sutra46 & MacGuffin: That kind of potato? You can eat the skin too.

    @CrakrJak: Um yeah? It would be WEIRD if she suddenly stated talking about "post-modern expressionsim & gravy" eh?

    Isn`t it NICE to talk about something OTHER THAN politics? (OR religion, OR AGW...)
    All praises to Vi!

    McDuff73: Lots of people. Adds texture, and if you steam the potatoes instead of boiling, it also contains more nutrients and is healthier.

    Of course, you`re just going to dump gravy on them anyways.

    Plus, I prefer a bit more texture to my mathed/mashed/smashed potatoes. It`s also one less step to do in preparation.

    For once I can agree with, 5Cats. Vi is fantastic. It`s kids like her that are going to bring us the next Einstein.

    ...and...Mashed potatoes with the skin on is called "smashed" potatoes. As long as you are using a thin skinned potato, it is very good.

    I seriously doubt the next Einstein is going to sprout forth from making a triangular `mathed` potato gravy bowl.

    I started keeping the skins on when I got too lazy to peal them.
    Then I got so lazy I just use instant mashed potatos.

    @CrakrJak: She "starts" with a triangle because she LIKES triangles!
    And snakes, and slug-cats...

    That doesn`t make her dumb, eh?

    As much as I love Vi, I`m starting to think she`s jumped the shark.
