@The One and Only Tom Murphy: Max, I miss your wit and wisdom and will need to check back more often.

I don't care what everyone else says about you, I think you are a very witty, articulate, and discerning person LOL

I love Brussels sprouts, but I never saw them in Brussels. You see a lot of French Fries there, because they're really Belgian Fries. They serve them with mayonaise and, if you insist and can ask in a good American accent, they will give you catsup. You can't buy them with American credit cards because they aren't secure enough to purchase vegetable products in Belgium.

Max, I miss your wit and wisdom and will need to check back more often.  

Or am I lying?

However, i suspect that isn't your grandmother's recipe either..... certainly not mine (although my maternal grandmother was fond of seafood).

@mhrackin: ...Inclusion of a recipe is even better...

Hence the fact that my Bebop to the Boolean Boogie (An Unconventional Guide to Electronics) remains the only electronics book in the world to boast a recipe for Seafood Gumbo (this isn't your grandmother's electronics book)

In fact, it's only two places behind The Coagulated & Curdled Custard of Despair in terms of the most comments

Yup.  Here's a free tip to all EET bloggers:  throw in a mention of some food item, no matter how tenuous the connection to the original topic.  Inclusion of a recipe is even better.  That will GUARANTEE the ascent of your blog to the "Top Ten Most Commented" list!

Sadly, I was not aware of the fact that this blog was still alive and reaping numerous new posts.  I just saw some of the exchanges between Max and kfield and wandered over.  So many new wondrous nuggets of knowledge! (now how many posters can conceive of alliterating two words, one with an initial N, the other a K)?  I wonder how many of the vast universe of EET readers marvel at the grip food has on so many of the posters?  However, the references to the possible adhesive suitability of Acer Saccharum sap may mollify those readers who are interested in "green" technologies.

Max, if you had been to girls camp, I suspect you might possibly have become educated in other arcane mysteries!  Those too were likely horribly neglected during your Uni years (and for good reason!).

@kfield: ...everyone should note that maple syrup does not make a good adhesive!

If only I'd been to girls camp, I would know useful stuff like this. I cannot fathom why they never mentioned these nuggets of knowledge during my university course -- four long years and nothing to show for it -- I shall write a letter to the chancelor immediately!
