daegog The recipe from BBC (the one that is written) has no molasses.
This stew has many variants.

Generally I don't like to post argumentative comments but here is one.
This is not the first counter-rotating coaxial rotors. For example Kamov Ka-50 was designed and produced in 80s and 90s.
Nor is it the first one to add a pusher propelle to a helicopter. In the 60s and 70s Lockheed made the AH-56 Cheyenne to compete with the AH-1 Cobra.
And it is not the fastest one in any measure. That honor goes to Westland Lynx with 400.87 km/h (249.09 mph). Not to mention the speeds of compound helicopters.

PS. Nice post.

Ok I usually know my weird science stuff but this was amazing and had me say wow twice.

woodyville06 It is called raita. It is quite different in taste from tzatziki. But for this dish tzatziki works just fine.

rammo34 It is a spice made of dried and crushed pomegranade jewels included white seeds.
If you want to have it made at home buy the most sour pomegranade you can find and throw it in a foodmixer.

You have many (well relatively) young blacksmiths. But extremely few young master blacksmiths.
If they stick around they might become masters.
In Sweden they have scholarships for traditional crafts. It is seen as national herritage.

woodyville06 Specially if you live in a cold place that heated dough raising program is great.

Draculya My guess is that they have to import the soil. This is not exactly dirt cheap to import soil. So just pay a little more and get some good stuff (like concrete).
But space is also at a premium as well.

BuckeyeJoe I agree with you on the explanation point. But for explaining to a child you do need to use anecdotes and simplifications.
PS. I am not a fan of Feynman. Specially how he held the introductory physics course (make it harder as a test of students)

I ment simply Heisenbergs undertainty principle and Brownian motion roled in one. When you cool helium (or anything) they loose "degrees of freedom" (thermodynamics). When it happens the number of available quantum states for a given energy-level is decreesed. Thus fermions have to keep a minimum distance from each other. This coupling of particle will give you the extremely fast heat/information transfer.

In neutron stars this phenomenon (quantum coupling) happens due to gravitational forces.

doiknowyou I was (first 3-4 seasons). After that it became like all other sitcoms with romance and repeating stories. It is a good sitcom but not as interesting.
If it is on TV I watch it. But I don't have a TV.

boredhuman I am with you on STRONG flour and SEA salt.
But tepid water is a good advice. (remember if everything is body temperature the yeast works alot faster)

woodyville06 I bought one ten years ago. The charm wear of really fast. Primarily because of the damn dough paddles made the bread too inconsistent.
But as a dough maker it was discent.
Essen wrote:
melcervini The bacteria/yeast cultures are unique from place to place. There has been fight over starters (for beer or bread). 
That yeast effects how the bread is going to taste.

Gerry1of1 The real estate agents here (Norway) usually put a couple of frozen pastries or bread in the oven before the house is viewed by potential buyers.

Draculya I have also wondered about that. But they used it on board ships and travelled.

Gerry1of1 ROFL. He'll learn to appreciate it (or fear it).
If you have any tips on international cuisine I am all ears.
Essen wrote:
Gerry1of1 It is really good. If you like beef Etiopian cuisine is taylor mafde for it (they have a lot of cattle). Their version of sushi is with beef.

Gerry1of1 In that case try this Doro Wat until your cheat day ;)

Draculya You are very welcome. I enjoy explaining science to people who are (at least some what) interested.
