It only called for one whole stick of butter & 3 egg yokes (plus lemon & Dijon).

Not sure about the second part - are you saying as a departure from your normal protocol (I don't ever pile it with anything...)?

Maybe the show side is better but I'm not liking the scales. Looks like a flat slab of Ti that someone ran 120 grit sandpaper over and slapped them on.

But I can't use a fork to get the food to my mouth with my right hand. Cut with the left while holding the food with the fork in my right, drop the knife, switch fork to left hand and eat.

Ok, it doesn't look bad from those angles. At least it has some shape, the previous shot made it look flat. I'd prefer it to be a little less pavement-rash texture though.

Iowa: well your honor, my client only did each of the Schedule One drugs in very small doses. So in the aggregate, maybe he exceeds the federal threshold to qualify for a felony charge, but since each individual instance was so small, miniscule really, he should not be charged at all on the per instance basis.

Judge: counselor...

Iowa: yes your honor?

Judge: While I do appreciate creative defenses, even if your client snorted just under 1 gram of cocaine each time he did it, 100 times, that is still almost a kilo of cocaine. and the allegations are that all drug charges relate to one night which I would take to be one instance.

Iowa: your honor, in the space-time continuum-

Judge: let me stop you right there counselor. I said I appreciate creative defenses. I do not appreciate pure horse shit. You were walking a fine line before, choose your next words carefully and keep in mind you have to appear in front of me every day.

Iowa: your honor, my client would like to request a merciful, swift death-

Guilty party: Jesus Iowa, what happened to whatever I want if I send you an eightball?!

Iowa: Damn it man!

Judge: Counselor-

Guilty party: Fuck you both!

Judge: I think we have heard enough at today's preliminary hearing to skip the formalities and go straight to sent-

Iowa: Objection!

Judge: Counselor, you haven't even heard your part of the sentence, so save your objections.

Iowa: My part? What the fu-

Judge: Watch your language counselor or I may add another year.

Iowa: Year?

Guilty Party: LOL, serves you right you treacherous piece of shi-

Judge: The defendant will restrain himself or the bailiff may gag him.

Guilty Party: I want a mistrial!

Judge: Get them both out of here, put them in a cell together, they deserve each other. Adjourned.

I always thought the switching hand thing is stupid, but I believe it is technically proper etiquette.

The left handed thing is just devil talk though.

Pineapple, Melons, and Bear.

Following in his inaugural work which was influenced by Caravaggio and Monet, the artist in this image is showing more influence from Cezanne with the unbalanced individual items coming together to balance the whole image. However, the counter top back ground also implies the previous influence with the out of focus look that Monet was famous for. Note how the textures of the pineapple and the melons is reflected in the knife. The scales of the pineapple, the rough sections of the Cantaloupe, and the smooth sections of the watermelon are all present and represented in the knife. It's a subtle nod to the great artists of the past.

There's no Cézanne in there. WTF? Clearly you missed the exhibition at the Musée d'Orsay.
