UPDATE: Post 3,000 - Ask JeffDFD anything...AGAIN for 5000!

Postby JeffDFD on Wed Oct 05, 2011 9:21 am

I know, I know... "Psssh, 3,000" - but I prefer quality over quantity (most of the time). I read the board for a few years before I actually signed up and started posting. Many times I have had a post all typed up and refrained from posting it because I already thought it was stupid.

So go ahead...ask me any stupid question and I will answer to the best of my ability. Or completely ignore this thread, that is fine too. Try to keep it more fun and less R rated.

:fist:

I own one, actually. Mainly because I am known as the Penguin Guy around work and people like to come up to me to chit chat about the Pens. So a few years back someone said their wife's friend knew a guy who had a batch of the first Winter Classic jersey's for 45-50 bucks. Now these probably "fell off a truck" or came from China, but I did not know a lot about knockoff jersey's back then, so I took the deal.

I had been wearing an unnumbered black replica jersey before that so no big deal. I wasn't a huge fan of the baby blue, but for a cheap price, why not? I now can typically be found wearing a black Orpik jersey.

My best feature (besides my stunning good looks, that is :slug: ) I think is my personality and humor. I am pretty good at juding a crowd and am outgoing so I have never had trouble getting to know people or have intelligent conversation with them.

My worst feature is my humor can get too sarcastic and I like to argue because I always think I am right (even if I sometimes know I am wrong). I once had a friend make fun of me for something I did and I argued with him for a good bit until he relented and agreed with me, and then I told him he was right at the end anyway. That was more funny and friends being friends, but I get like that sometimes in real matters as well.

Nonetheless, there was a rationale, however thin, for the name. The product contained maltose, known at the time as "grape sugar," and it did have a nutty flavor. Moreover, bearing in mind that the name is properly spelled "Grape-Nuts" and not "Grape Nuts," one might argue that while there were generic commodities known as grapes and nuts, there was nothing called grape-nuts, in the sense that there were cashew nuts, and thus the name could have no tendency to deceive. A fine distinction, I suppose, but that is what we have lawyers for.



http://www.straightdope.com/columns/rea ... es-or-nuts


Despite its name, the cereal contains neither grapes nor nuts. The cereal is actually made from wheat and barley, in later years, whole wheat so that the cereal could boast the nutritional value. Mr. Post believed that sucrose (which he called "grape sugar") formed during the baking process. This, combined with the nutty flavor of the cereal, is said to have inspired its name. Another explanation originates from employees at Post, who claim that the cereal got its name due to its resemblance to grape seeds, or grape "nuts." The cereal originally prepared by C. W. Post when he was developing the product, was a batter that came out of the oven as a rigid sheet. He then broke the sheet into pieces and ran them through a coffee grinder to produce the "nut" sized kernels.

I drove over the speed limit coming into work this morning (until I hit the mess of traffic around 79 that is being talked about in another thread right now

I also fast forward through commercials whe using my DVR (How will I know what to buy!)

I put lawn fertilizer on my grass the other day even though the bag specifically said "do not apply if rain is forecasted in teh next 24 hours." There was a 20% chance that night, so I rolled the dice.

I should be working right now, but just got out of a meeting early and am taking a breather before my next meeting.

I recently had a child and even though they said only 4 people (including me) can be back in the waiting room area, I had both sets of parents, myself, and an occassional sibling or two in and out.
