This was really fun! In many ways, this was reaffirming as well. I'm glad that though I've been mostly absent, hubski persists in such a great way. Thanks c_hawkthorne for doing the thing!

Ugh, why can’t fundamentalists be fun?

Oh, very cool! I was actually introduced to Vinthagen by another professor of mine, whose area is political violence and post-conflict transition.

If you were into Vinthagen's work, I'd recommend that you check out the UMass Amherst Resistance Studies initiative (which he heads), as they're involved in a number of upcoming actions.

It's been very interesting chatting with Vinthagen, particularly around protest as a primary form of resistance, as well as how he's seeing Everyday Resistance manifesting under a remote-work paradigm.

I had to laugh as one person in a group my org facilitated the other day refuses to turn on their camera or microphone, which again, drove home the point that in the US, people are mostly casting protests from democratic/democratic-leaning groups as "resistance" while casting what republican/republican-leaning groups as decidedly "something else".

I will check out Whispering Truth to Power, as one of my research interests is organizational silence, which I believe also manifests elsewhere as societal silence. Cheers!

That's fair and I'm largely the same. I will say for what it's worth, I do still follow the KB cornbread recipe pretty closely. If people haven't tried it, I'd recommend it!

Edit: added link to recipe

I didn't ask, but he was displaying many of the symptoms.

Today I saw an old man on a walk, who would stop to make faces at jack-o-lanterns that haven’t been taken down. When he came closer, it was clear he was talking to them too.

That set the tone of the day for me. How’s everybody?

I was not aware that this was a thing, but good to know! Do you follow that recipe? If so, how does it come out? I ask because even though the onion and other components do look like they add moisture, the fat content makes me wonder if this turns out on the dry side, though maybe the oats help to retain that moisture?

humanodon  ·  21 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Foodski: Cauliflower Meatloaf

Fair enough! I do have my go-to process, but always looking for ways to experiment, so good to know!

This is some wild shit. I love it!

I notice that there's eggs in the meatloaf recipe, but no mention of breadcrumbs, or milk, which I am used to seeing as part of the binder when combined with the eggs. Any issues with it being too crumbly/not really holding together?

Ugh, sorry about not making it! I’m glad this exists though!

humanodon  ·  28 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hubski Virtual Meetup No. 3

I’m down, thanks for explanation!

humanodon  ·  28 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hubski Virtual Meetup No. 3

How does this work exactly?

humanodon  ·  32 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Pubski: October 21, 2020

Oh nice! What was the course on l, if you don’t mind me asking?

humanodon  ·  32 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Pubski: October 21, 2020

I do love velveeta, but I'm trying to make sure I get all my vitamins and such. Sounds great, though I live in a tiny apartment with limited space, so my thought was that a meal replacement might hit the sweet spot of being not terrible for me and compact. Thanks for the suggestion! I'll look into it further!

I've actually been trying Huel out! To clarify, when I wrote, "makes me more hungry", that was a poor wording. I meant to say (as you also noted) that after Huel for 2 meals, I find that I am really looking forward to eating actual food (most likely) psychosomatically.

In a weird twist of fate, my cousin sent me some hulled hemp seeds, which I've started added to Huel before blending together. This seems to work better! Maybe I'll give the hot and savory a try. Glad it's not just me who feels like eating real food after 2 meals of Huel!

Thanks for the link! It looks like an interesting alternative to the oat-based product I'm using right now. Any idea why the crunchy/salty side helps? I've definitely munched celery before to feel full. Your response also has me thinking I should be really intentional about taking my time with the drink, so I'll definitely give that a try too!

I’m trying out a meal replacement so I can keep up my calorie intake while working, since I’ve been forgetting to eat while working and my partner says I get cranky (true).

I feel like it actually makes me more hungry, but I just started. I’d really rather just have a meal, but don’t like working past my designated work hours.

Anyone got tips on optimizing the whole meal replacement thing?

As a conflict management guy, I am so curious about these kinds of situations. When you find yourself in a position like this (assuming that this may not be the first time) is there a way that things tend to unfold?
