It's possible my generation is the last where nearly everyone learned to cook. But I don't think it died out in one or two generations; lots out there who CAN, and even enjoy it. But it's become really easy now to have incredibly good food pre-made, right along with incredibly bad (but great-tasting) complex food. So I'm sure it's changing still.



Nearly all women you mean? Otherwise it would mean you never met the men in my family in the older generations. These guys took it on faith that they would never have to do what they defined as 'women's work'. They could be monumentally ignorant about such as a result.

It sometimes was quite comical. For example, at one point when my dad was on his own for a bit, he complained to me about the cheap wire hangers in the closet, he couldn't understand why Mom [deceased] could ever waste her money on such cheap items. He had no concept they came from the cleaners.

An older brother is pretty bad himself when it comes to cooking. He nearly never had to do any of it, and the old joke about not knowing how to boil water pretty much applies.

I'm not saying I could do it under pressure like those contestants, but if I had enough time (a couple of weeks, maybe), I could definitely figure it out without formal training. After all, that's how it was first created!



I've never made souffle, or cake even, but it might not be that difficult to do. This, mind you, from someone who failed to mix tortilla flour with water to make tortillas ;)

The trick is to have the right equipment and use the right technique. Cooking, as I told the good father elsewhere, is mostly preparation (chopping, mixing, grating, etc). Sometimes lacking a single piece of equipment or utensil renders the whole enterprise impossible, like not having a tortilla press. Maybe I should try to bake a cake next weekend, or even a souffle, if I can find one that isn't loaded with butter and eggs.

My dessert goal, though, is flan.

My wife still laughs at me because when we were dating I agreed to make her dinner one night. I was visiting her in San Diego, while she was at work she texted me and said she wanted grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner. I had no idea how to make one and actually had to Google it.

My favorite TV show used to be "How To Boil Water" an introductory Cooking Channel show which unfortunately aired far too early in the morning and featured this faux bimbo who supposedly had to be shown simple things.

Yachtsmen have to learn how long things keep and what can be stored in close proximity to other items and what can not be. They have to know how to supplement items and the like.

It only takes a husband one time to think that cooking is easy. One time to forget to lock down the mixing bowl before turning the mixer on and suddenly the walls, floor and ceiling have chocolate cake all over them.

Home Ec was taught in my school, girls only of course, but it was all pancake mix and cake mix and prepared this and that.

I'm guessing bread, butter/margarine and American kind-of-cheese.

Long ago we had a sandwich maker (I guess that's what it's called). The thing about it was it pressed the bread slices tight along the edges. I'd put two slices of ham, one of near-cheese and some onions and pressed the whole thing. The result was pretty good, but I missed having mustard inside (I tried it. It did not end well). The downside was having to clean the appliance afterwards, too.

I guess it really depends on who you are and where you're from. My late stepmother was not an honors graduate of the Babs School of Home Economics. Visiting them one Thanksgiving about 25 years ago she got uncharacteristically ambitious for the event, deciding she would actually cook instead of doing the holiday at the same nice restaurant as on other holidays. We were not allowed to enter the kitchen side of the house while the (experimental) production of the holiday feast was underway. Unfortunately, the directions did not specifically say to remove the packaging material from the poor bird & other stuff. We got the fire put out without too much trouble, and after clearing the house enough to come back inside we settled in to their usual dinner of steak, grilled by Dad.

I'm not used to having TVs die on me so quick. Had a small RCA which died after a year. Now a Sanyo which is having picture problems after 2 years.

Both Walmart purchases. I used to TVs lasting much longer.

What kind of chicanery involves electronics designed to last barely out of warranty? No, didn't buy any extended warranties.

Bah humbug.

Plus the freakin' things just stay in one place. Not like they are getting bounced around.

I'd no idea those brands still existed!

In 2009 I bought my first HD TV, a 36" Samsung. after a little over a year it stopped working. I took a chance and brought it to an "authorized" service place. They told me what it had wrong but I forget what it was. A day and about $40 later it worked again. It's been working perfectly well ever since.

The funny thing is they told me it shouldn't fail again. I thought to myself "Shoudl it have failed at all to begin with?"

A guy at my job got his girlfriend a dog for her birthday(she also works at my job). She apparently loves it, but her feelings are wrong. They don't live together and the dog is obviously going to her place AND she has a roommate. So she has to buy all the food and get her stuff chewed on initially. She's also pretty and he's out of shape which makes things worse.

I love animals(particularly English bulldogs and penguins) but the idea of owning a pet doesn't appeal to me. Too much money. Food, toys, them chewing your stuff potentially, vet bills that really are just squeezing a little bit more time etc. I don't need pet love. I just want woman love and MONEY!

If you have kids (intentionally), you don't get to comment on the EV of other peoples' life decisions, IMO.

Love kids or hate them, you will probably never make a more expensive decision in your life.

I have been debating the +/- EV of the situation. I really never wanted kids but I love my wife. If we didn't have kids then we would probably not be together. Kids may be -ev but the relationship is +ev. I am just not sure which one is the greater number.

There's a possibility that while kids might be -EV now they can be +EV way down the line. You can potentially live with them, they can help you get around etc. But you MUST play the hand correctly!

That is very true. Since my 2.5 year old started crawling I have been making him use his left and right arm. He is going to be 3 in a few months and can throw well with both left and right. He also bats left handed. Hopefully his coordination is good and I just may have a switch pitching, power lefty. cha ching

I'm 6'4 and I was in a relationship with a woman a couple years ago who is 6'1. I joked, yet I secretly did mean, that I was going to turn our gigantic future baby into a basketball player. She later broke up with me mainly because of my AC trips. Not fair.

I ate T-day dinner once served by a woman who said she didn't actually know how to cook. So she got a lot of people to bring stuff and only did the turkey, helped by extensive advice at every step.

We discovered she never removed the giblets.

They're saying it was (unconfirmed) shot down by Ukrainian rebels backed by Russia. 23 Americans on board, which will help give the US investigatory status (along with it being a Boeing). No word yet on other nationalities, but the Ukraine has just requested the US lead the investigation. 280 pax and 15 crew, all fatalities. Also, Israel has put ground troops into the Gaza Strip. 10 mile debris field, which helps indicate it was an explosion. The rebels have already recovered the black boxes, but say they will only turn them over to the Russians. There is electronic evidence that the aircraft was targeted and locked on.

MH was only carrier foolish enough to use that route near a war zone. No one else was using it.

Its hard to shoot down an airliner at FL 33 if you are a militant rebel group even with Russian backing. Now an intermediate range missle from a Russian radar controlled weapons unit with telemetry and course correction, that is more military than local rebels. So it was more likely Russian than Ukrainian no matter which side the Ukrainians were on.

Some indication of trouble at FL 33 with descent to FL 21 but even that way, its hard for an insurgency unit to be doing that stuff, such as with a BUK system. It will turn out to be a military Russian unit, not a poorly equipped Ukrainian unit.

It was the Russians that had just shot down a high flying Ukrainian Transport Plane a week ago.

I don't like the idea of feeding or building an emotional bond with something with such a short lifespan. Dog food and vet bills are expensive. You WILL pay the vet bills if something bad goes down because you love your pet. I'd rather not have the pet to love thus no responsibility.

I tried that on the 6'1 girl. Here's one little example. When we went out to go eat, I generally paid about 70% of the bill. Virtually all the time. Instead she complained(after a long while, I would have altered my approach if I knew earlier) that I never "treated her". She basically wanted to go Dutch most of the time and I pay the whole thing once in a while. I logically tried to explain to get that in the long run I'm paying more. That certainly didn't work.

I tried that on the 6'1 girl. Here's one little example. When we went out to go eat, I generally paid about 70% of the bill. Virtually all the time. Instead she complained(after a long while, I would have altered my approach if I knew earlier) that I never "treated her".

It's not about who pays more.

It's about doing nice thoughtful things right?

It's about making her feel special. No one feels special picking up 30% of a tab.

I was at the park today with my son this evening and there was a little league play off game. It kinda made me sad that I am getting old and are so far away from playing little league. I guess that is probably the only reason that people coach, it is the only way they can stay in the game.



That's also why guys ump.
