I would strongly dissuade you from using spoiler tags. Mistborn has been out long enough that you don't need them in this board. When Alloy comes out, that will be different. See: http://www.17thshard...-to-17th-shard/
I'm strongly tempted to go edit them out, simply for readability
EDIT: Though, if we do start talking about Stormlight, that may warrant spoiler tags because those spoilers should be in the Stormlight boards. But we are very lenient on them, especially very minor ones.
Wow, that's pretty messed up. It sounds like Penguin interpretation of a non-compete clause requires her to live on NOTHING other than their up front payment of $20,000 for well over a year. Personally, i went ahead and purchased her self published book, not because i have any particular interest in it, but because i wanted to help support the author because of this.
so....i knew this was going to happen eventually when i first heard this news, but, i'm going to go ahead and vent this here. I'm all ready sick of hearing people talking about all the things he invented. Seriously. I've looked through a few different articles/discussions on this topic in just the past half an hour and saw people claiming he invented....pretty much everything. For example, he invented clicking. Like with a mouse. Despite the fact that, looking it up, the very first trackball was made 3 years before he was born, and the first mouse prototype was when he was like 7.
Note: this has nothing to do really with jobs himself, and is more a comment against the collective fandom and their complaints/praises/tributes about the whole thing (also, has nothing to do with anything on here, just stuff i've seen around the 'net). Also, it seems like discussions about this topic are everywhere, in everything i do.
YOU'RE WORNG!!! Actually that sounds like it would taste amazing and I plan on trying it out as soon as I can get a hold of that Sriracha sauce. do you know if it's something that most grocery stores would stock or if I'm going to have to go find an store that's exclusively orient in order to get a hold of it?

Holy crap, Eeron, that sounds ridiculously delicious. I think I'm going to have to try that sometime!
Has anyone here ever tried cooking with dark soy sauce? It's hecka stronger than normal soy, and it really gives a great zing to anything you would want to eat with soy sauce. It can be hard to find - typically it's only sold in Asian markets - but it's worth the quest.
never heard of it, however, i loves me some soy sauce. I'll have to look into that.
Also, I figure i'll put my signature recipe for chili out here. I have a buddy of mine who thinks this stuff is the best chili he's ever eaten. So much so that he made me show him how to make it, and he cooks himself up a pot every few weeks.
This recipe usually changes a bit every time i make it, since i usually just make it on the fly, but overall it's pretty much the same.
first i take a pound of bacon and cook it up nice and crisp. Then, i take some cut up onions and caramelize them in the bacon grease. Once they're good and done, i throw a half pound of beef on top of it and cook it up in the onions and bacon grease. while the beef is cooking, i always season it, it's my opinion that it makes the chili taste better to season the beef heavily and let the beef flavor the sauce rather than putting seasoning in the sauce. For spices, i usually go with garlic salt, onion powder, chili powder (lots of times i'll buy a prepackaged "chili" seasoning mix and throw that in instead of chili powder), pepper, cilantro, and cinnamon. once the beef is nice and cooked up well, i usually throw the vegetables on top of it, this can consist of whatever veggies you want, but what i usually do is bell peppers, carrots, celery, and corn. after that cooks for a little bit, i then throw tomato sauce (or tomato paste+water depending on what's available at the time) and beans (usually black/kidney and chili hot/mild, pending upon my mood at the time) on top of it. Crunch up the bacon in it, throw in a diced jalapeno if you want, and let that boil up nicely for about an hour or so. Throw in some cheese and crackers and serve.
Also: I personally am of the belief that it's not chili unless it has beans. I know this is contrary to the opinion of many people who say chili DOESN'T have beans, but it is what it is, and chili aint chili to me without beans.
