Let us begin

My original idea of printing out the pages of my old site to pdf’s didn’t work. The html didn’t translate very well. It wanted to break pages in bad places, for example. I had a workaround, but…look, it just didn’t work, okay?

I think the thing to do is dump the whole site into an area on this site. For now, I’ll link to individual articles. Later, I’ll fix the functionality the connects them.

Simply put, the “home” links don’t work yet. Let me know if anything else goes wrong.

Don’t worry. Just click.

I actually owned the lab coat in the graphic. You can’t tell, because weasels don’t have shoulders, but it was a proper mad scientist’s coat. Probably Fifties? It was a heavy, heavy cotton with little steel buttons that marched across the shoulder and down the side. And it fit! I loved that thing.

Our first experiment offers the cat raw meat and cooked meat to see which one she prefers. The answer surprised me.

Hell yes that’s clickbait. And do please click the graphic with the Zippo lighter. It’s a scrap of javascript and I was very proud of myself.

I really, really enjoyed that page, and the Zippo doodad made me grin. Thanks!

I’ve got to wonder, though, if the results of the experiment would have been the same if, instead of a naked unseasoned cooked drumstick, the non-raw offering had been chicken parmigiana or coq au vin?

You wrote about the lab coat in past tense. I hope you at least wore it to a Halloween party before letting it go.

My mother use to make chicken-fried steak quite often, and I would always manage to cut off a little bite of raw round steak to eat. Not sure why. I don’t think I’ve ever done it as an adult.

I dunno from raw chicken, but I used to sneak raw bacon as a youngster, very tasty. I guess a high fat content makes a difference in the raw taste, I loved raw bacon until I learned about tapeworms in 5th grade science class. Brrrrr.

Raw cookie dough or pie dough was the extent of raw till I discovered sushi/sashimi and raw salmon and tuna both tasted better than cooked.

Raw bacon no, but boiled bacon yes, which I really can’t recommend. Very chewy… and stringy.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
