    Yeah, a simple fish like that is really about the same effort at that ham slice.

    No, you can wear capri leggings to Zumba - just not the ones that fall off you every five minutes.

    I've known some people who managed to screw up cooking fish. I don't know how - but they did. Talk about the black thumb of cooking!

    Aren't there some sort of special car requirements for drag racing?

    If I take it out of the package before I microwave it, that counts as cooking from scratch...

    Not really. As with most competition-based things, there are classes. And there is a class for street cars. Now, a lot of those 'street cars' will have drag radials, two-step ignitions, etc. Things intended to make them more effective in straight line acceleration. Personally, I don't have any of that. I run the same tires that I use for a 4000 mile road trip (we're leaving on one of those next month...) at the same pressure I use to drive every day. I have a manual transmission. I launch from idle, just like I would leaving a stop light (anything above idle and I just smoke the tires anyway...). As a result, pretty much anybody can beat me off the line. My ET (Elapsed Time) down the quarter mile is not bad for a street car; I run mid-12-second times. But my trap speed at the end of the run is 122-123MPH. Which means that if I put on drag tires and launched hard, I'd be running low-11-second times. And if I were running at sea level, instead of 7500 feet, I'd be running solid 9-second times, with trap speeds of 135-140.

    I'll post a video... :)

    Looking into buying a training dummy so I can practice with something other than my WOODEN dummy. So many different brands out there.

    Can anyone recommend one? Also, are these things capable of standing on their own? I see some come with chains, which implies having to hang them up...

    Or old fish. I've noticed that the fresher it is, the less "fishy" it smells. I eat a ton of seafood when we're in the Caribbean. In Colorado... not so much.

    I am addicted to fresh water fish and seafood both. Have been since I came to the States. I know people here complain about mercury in fish and other possible risks, but I'll tell you what - it is REALLY refreshing to have some confidence your fish is not poisoned or radioactive. Where I grew up, that was luxury.

    Didn't know that (about the cheap fish and Atlantic salmon). I am very non-discriminating when it comes to salmon - I've never had any until I came to the States. I really like smoked salmon - I make this little appetizer with rosemary Triscuits, cream cheese, and smoked salmon. @gpseymour usually picks up the dish and tries to run away with it. :)
