I have created a sleuth miracle!


Go ahead and try, but this thread is about anything and nothing, all at the the same time!

This is the place where Al can talk about world domination, Crunch can worship David Hasselhoff, SS can try and find even more complicated questions for his pub quizzes, Nikkie can advertise for Tim Tams, cfm can troll for more Sharpie victims, JR can beg for the chance to win Bobo back, and bedazzling can be a way of life!

So go off, rant and rave, talk about anything, i don't care, I just wanted to see my avatar on the page (when its actually me anyways)

So go ahead, I dare you all to try and hijack me :)

Hah. She foolishly used the idea I planted in her head. Okay, Biggie. Let's see if I can't hijack this thread with the....

<evil mad scientists laugh coming from underground lair> Muuhahahahaha <which is funny because my headquarters is an above ground courthouse, but anyways>

Oh biggie and al. You have no idea what you've just done. For a second I thought about hijacking the unhijackable. Its rather easy... All I have to do is start revealing secret details about the expansion coming up that I've managed to wrangle, steal, and torture out of those in the know. Details about Shangri-la and about another city... Be it Cairo? It is! Oh the details I could post in here and the long list of replies on message in response would be a satisfying hijacking of your thread. But this task is far too easy and wouldn't even impress you mere mortals. Instead, I will abuse your unhijackable thread to the fullest extent possible. Muuuhahahahaha!

Good Eats Fried Chicken by Alton Brown
1 broiler/fryer chicken, cut into 8 pieces
2 cups low fat buttermilk
2 tablespoons kosher salt
2 tablespoons Hungarian paprika
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Flour, for dredging
Vegetable shortening, for frying

Place chicken pieces into a plastic container and cover with buttermilk. Cover and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours.

Melt enough shortening (over low heat) to come just 1/8-inch up the side of a 12-inch cast iron skillet or heavy fry pan. Once shortening liquefies raise heat to 325 degrees F. Do not allow oil to go over 325 degrees F.

Drain chicken in a colander. Combine salt, paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Liberally season chicken with this mixture. Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess.

Place chicken skin side down into the pan. Put thighs in the center, and breast and legs around the edge of the pan. The oil should come half way up the pan. Cook chicken until golden brown on each side, approximately 10 to 12 minutes per side. More importantly, the internal temperature should be right around 180 degrees. (Be careful to monitor shortening temperature every few minutes.)

Drain chicken on a rack over a sheet pan. Don't drain by setting chicken directly on paper towels or brown paper bags. If you need to hold the chicken before serving, cover loosely with foil but avoid holding in a warm oven, especially if it?s a gas oven.

She was a tall glass of bourban standing there in the doorway. I said, "What can I do for you sweetheart?" She sighed and stepped into my office. "It's my husband. He's been murdered but the police won't help me. Please tell me you'll take the case." She broke down sobbing as she sank into a chair in front of my desk. As long as I'd been a detective I'd been having pretty dames like this walking into my office. Sometimes thier tears were sincere, othertimes not. I wondered which way this was going to break as I handed her a handkerchief. "There there. Why don't you start by telling me what happened." Between sobs the story spilled out, "My husband Earl was a real estate developer. I found him with a knife in his back on the steps outside out door when I got home from shopping today." I leaned back and looked her over. The water works had stopped and she had calmed down a little too fast for my liking, but that was something to remember for later. "Did your husband have any enemies?" I asked as I watched her face closely for signs of deception. "Well, his friend Michael Brown and him have been fueding for years. You see, Earl forgot Michaels birthday two years in a row." I fought back the urge to laugh, barely maintaining my composure. Two birthdays in a row? Now that's one hell of a motive for murder. "Uh-huh," I answered trying to figure out what game she was trying to play. "Two birthdays in a row? You know, I don't often here that as a motive for murder. Can you think of any other reason or anybody else that would want to hurt your husband?" The waterworks started again as she replied, "no. He's the only one I can think of." "Ok, ok. I'll take the case." I said as I escorted her to the door of my office. Her story stunk up to high heaven, and I intended to find out what really happened to Earl.

Just to harp back onto Justin's funny facts...

* If the population of China walked passed you, in single file, the line would never end because of the rate of reproduction.
* There are more chickens than people in the world.

Now if you think about that for too long it'll do your head in.

(there you go ferret err I mean biggie ;) )
