Pssst! Got a sec to chat?

We are utterly thrilled when readers want to hang out and talk – whether it's amongst themselves or in response to pieces we've posted. We want Eatocracy to be a cozy, spirited online home for those who find their way here.

Consider the daily Coffee klatsch post as your VIP lounge – the primary comments thread for readers who'd like to chat about topics not related to the articles we're running. That way, everyone knows where to find each other, and each post's comments section remains on topic.

Since you asked - is there a replacement for 5@5? It'd be much cooler if you think it up than if we mandate it. All we ask is civility and kindness. And occasional bits of pork fat.

    according to one my fave shows, Criminal Minds, you can scoop out the eye with a spoon that has been sharpened on all edges.

        If this ever comes up on Criminal minds or CSI we should sue 'EM. Yes my dear,we are demented.

        I was gonna be a GYNO 'cuz I like to work with my hands. Never panned out though.

      • Tazer@Rich

        HAHAHA you would say that!

        I think it'd be fun to be a doc, I was just never good enough at practical Chem to want to do it. Oh well!

        January 13, 2011 at 7:35 pm |
      • RichardHead @Tazer

        You have to know chemistry for this stuff? Approach the Body-Left leg,right leg. Left arm,right arm. What is sooooo difficult?

    Anybody have a knife handy? I'd like to stab my eye out.

    January 13, 2011 at 6:07 pm |
    • RichardHead @Tazer

      Would a mechanical pencil be of any help?

      January 13, 2011 at 6:12 pm |
    • Queen of Everything@Tazer

      For the eye to actually come out, you would need to sever both the nerves and muscles behind the eye. To do this with a frontal approach would be nearly impossible. A transphenoidal approach would be best but difficult to achieve with a knife. Sorry to rain on your parade.

      • Tazer@QoE

        How bout a spoon then?

    • MicheleG

      Actually I can't remember the differences between lager, ale, and porter. I just prefer dark beer. Dark and "chewey."

    • RichardHead @JBJ

      • Queen of Everything@Truth

        My beer is Rheingold, the dry beer.
        Think of Rheingold whenever you buy beer.
        It's not bitter, not sweet, it's the extra dry treat
        Won't you try, won't you buy Rheingold beer.

        January 13, 2011 at 5:25 pm |
      • Truth@Queen

        Scheaffer is the one beer to have when you're having more than one!

        I now have the theme song to "Laverne and Shirley" in my head.

        Those two were DEFINITELY in the closet...

        January 13, 2011 at 5:48 pm |

        They might have been but I always coveted Laverne's initialed sweaters.
