People here in the US say it sometimes to be clever or cute or whatever, and to someone like me who really knew zero Japanese before, I thought it was Spanish. I thought it was like adios or something


Me too! xD

I recently realized that red velvet cake was actually chocolate cake. with food coloring. wow. This made me think to all my past realizations and wonder whether I'm just oblivious to obvious things or not.

Then! today, for as long as I've been a member of crunchyroll, my computer froze on an advertisement for crunchyroll. the very beginning. with the website for devices. It had the crunchyroll symbol. The way I was laying down made me see that the orange moon in front of smaller orange moon behind a white dot that's possibly another moon was actually an anime eye.... or is it?

I don't know anymore. You tell me


Fun fact: Traditionally, the red velvet cake got it's red color from boiled beets juice. It helped retain the moisture of the cake :)

As for me... I used to think that ponies were baby horses. I feel stupid o_o

They also used vinegar to bring out the red colour in chocolate, which is related to the pigment in beets.

I was sure that "vs" in Animegirlzvstheworld was intentionally misspelled abbreviation of "will save".
Apparently everybody knew it was just a vs. that stood for versus?!
I don't know if I can go on with my life now!!!

I know about the beats now, too! But every red velvet cake I've eaten was just food coloring. And now, I'm starting to understand the reason I began loving red velvet was because it was a homemade one with beets. A completely different taste. A much better taste.

No, a good red velvet cake has only a minuscule amount of chocolate (1-2 teaspoons), which isn't enough to make it a chocolate cake (a very light chocolate spice cake may have the same amount, but the flavor of spice cakes mostly come from cinnamon, ground cloves, etc...). The components of a red velvet cake that sets it apart from most other cakes is the use of buttermilk and vinegar (Masafuta mentioned the vinegar). Also, a characteristic of red velvet cake is that it's popular to specifically use cream cheese frosting.


I've nothing to offer for the just-found-out-that-everyone-else-knew challenge.

EDIT:

It used to also be popular to use carmine as the dye for red velvet cakes (the one made of cochineal insects).

That the "Misuse of Drugs Act 1971" labelled Schedule 3/CIII Opioid Pain Medication Hydrocodone, also known as "Vicodin", "Norco", "Maxidone" - All of these Medications, which come in combination of the Schedule 3/CIII Drug Hydrocodone and APAP which is much more commonly known as Tylenol/Acetaminophen/Paracetamol, was as recently as within the last 4-5 Days, was COMPLETELY moved from the lesser Schedule 3/CIII tier of Prescription Medications, to the much more tightly regulated Schedule 2/CII tier. Of the truly ABUSE worthy Opiates, Hydrocodone; when having been combined with the APAP, was the ONLY Pain Medication that, underneath the Scheduling, as Schedule 3/CIII, that could actually be Prescribed by the Physician to the Patient with REFILLS, as well, as be able to be CALLED IN to the Pharmacy by the Physician He or Herself, or a member of the Clinicians working within their Clinic via the Prescribing Physician's DEA number. Underneath Schedule 2/CII, You MUST have a Prescription written for the Medication each and every time. Unlike many of the WELL KNOWN and "Notorious" Opioid Pain Medications such as Oxycontin, Fentanyl, Morphine, Dilaudid, Opana and so on and so forth, those Medications renowned for their Addictive potential, Hydrocodone, while having JUST as much of a conceivable rate of possible resulting Addiction, be it from legitimate or recreational Use, at one time was kinda the "odd Man out" while sitting in position at Schedule 3/CIII. The only OTHER "Opiate" that found itself alongside Hydrocodone in Schedule 3/CIII, is the mixed Opioid Agonist–antagonist known as Buprenorphine, which is Used in fighting cases of Opiate Addiction. Now, it has been well known that Hydrocodone...when Prescribed in it's SINGULAR product, meaning a Medication containing ONLY Hydrocodone has been Schedule 2/CII. It may shock some of those in the "Medical Know" that even the even LESSER Addictive considered Opioid, Codeine...Yeah I'm speaking of the well known PARTIAL Medication that made up the so called..."Purple Drank"...the stuff that all of those Rappers...I believe it was "Three 6 Mafia"...
...(In)famously made look SO COOL in their Music Videos and Lyrics...But Yes, Codeine/Promethazine Cough Syrup with it's lower...yet AGAIN, not ANY less possible in creating and awakening an Addiction...Potency and Schedule 4/CIV status, even IT, Prescribed or compounded in it's SOLO form, without APAP or Promethazine - an Anti-Emetic, is ALSO belonging to the tougher than nails Medication and Pharmaceutical Scheduling 2/CII.

Granted, this wasn't something that I was absolutely BLINDSIDED by...Reports have been coming in from the DEA and many Other State regulatory Boards that this was something in the works. No One simply knew that it would actually have been enacted, and come into full fruition as QUICKLY as it has been done. You may be saying, "Why the Heck does ANY of this even matter to You?" For that, I can come up with 2 reasons. Not only am I in the Medical "Trade"...currently, a 5th Year Medical Student, who is actually but just a little bit of time away from beginning the "Countdown" to the commencement of My Psychiatric alongside Osteopathic Residency at the University of Kentucky in Early Spring of 2015. Aside from that, another much more Personal issue lies underneath it all. I've mentioned it several times on this Site, but I've kinda kept it as "hush-hush" as I can. However, for MANY...MANY Years, I Myself was a victim to the Disease, insanity, and repetition of Addiction. Especially when it comes to Opioids. At My worst, I was absolutely as physically, emotionally, and psychologically as LOW, and bad off as You can even possibly begin to fathom. I have been Sober now going on a little over 6 Years. So this announcement, To Me this is a relief. Not only because "Once an Addict, ALWAYS an Addict" and I'm just as close to Relapse as Someone who has been Sober 30 Years, or 30 Days. Something else that goes hand in hand with the decision upon upping the setting of this Medication into a higher Schedule...Don't get Me wrong, a Drug for those that's when Used respectfully and which when Used responsibly can be a great Aid in the fight against Pain; Chronic, or Acute...Is the fact that hopefully, as demonstrated as lately among the Medical and Pharmaceutical Community, that the Usage of Extended-Release and Sustained-Release technology, as demonstrated for the first time in an Oxycodone/APAP combination product from Mallinckrodt Pharma, known as Xartemis XR, and another from King Pharma known as Oxecta. Never before has Extended-Release technology or patenting been Used on a Hydrocodone or Oxycodone COMBINATION product before, only prior having been Used as a defense against the Abuse of ridiculously strong Opioid Narcotics such as Opana 'aka' Oxymorphone, and the One We ALL have heard of...namely, Oxycontin 'aka' pure Oxycodone, albeit in an Extended-Release form.

So again, to FINALLY finish off this "Term Paper" and answer the Thread's question, I just earlier Today became fully aware of this surprising and in My opinion GREAT news. And while as a Physician to be...At least on the D.O. side...This entire issue with Pain Medication and eventually becoming a Physician; obviously Someone with the ability to PRESCRIBE these types of Medications, WHEN and IF I actually continue to make it, and reach that point in time, Stars willing, where I will have to make up My mind regarding whether My Future Patients when I don, and take the "Hippocratic Oath", at least now, at this exact moment and period in time, I can relax...Kick back and think about things to come, rather than be forced to deal with them at this actual moment. However, this entire Subject was simply something that I found to be VERY interesting that I heard mentioned and brought up through the Grapevine at School Today, and Others were talking about it already like it was "Old News". Although, it surely, and ever so wonderfully, came as a shock to this little ole' Medical Student.

Thanks for Reading!

How to crack an egg properly...

I had thought I was doing it right but just being messy about it, nope! Totally wrong this whole time. Embarrassment and hilarity ensued.
