I'm thinking of the meatloaf in shops. It looks like it's a blob of flesh that's been crushed together.

Okra is just beyond gross.

And shouldn't be eaten by anyone.

I love pickled Okra. Something about that slimy texture when it is fresh just gets to me though.

I never met a type of vegetable I didn't like until a month ago at an Indian restaurant and a friend say "let's try the okra".

Yes, it's the slime ... the slime ...

And, Madge, I assure you I am no ones' mother-in-law. I don't even really like kale, I just managed to eat it once. And now I'm being persecuted for trying to keep this thread on track. Oh, the horror!

But I have to say, my new favorite phrase is-

"This thread has been SATURNED!"

The biggest gripe I have about okra is when it's chopped, it looks like jalapeno. I love jalapenos. So when I get myself all excited to have some jalapenos and it turns out to be okra, damn; what a disappointment.

I agree. Okra, breaded with corn meal and fried, is a staple of my family from the southeast. I just can't stomach it. Ugh.

Ouch, that's harsh. Reminds me of about 30 yrs ago at a party, I was a moderately shitfaced and bit into what I thought was a chocolate cake in the dim light - turned out to be liverwurst. At first I figured the cake had gotten so rotten that it had turned into a fetid mush.

Your family fed you that stuff? Ouch again :( Mum used to serve mashed potato from a packet and would never put enough water in it so you'd get these horrible dried lumps on the plate that you were expected to eat under pain of parental disapproval.

LOL! A cake sized liverwurst? Fetid mush lol. I can picture that. Anyone else notice your horror lol? I cannot stomach liver. It makes me want to hurl. Strangely enough, I can eat liverwurst though. Agree Okra is nasty.

Ha! It just looked like a slice - like maybe the last slice of a chocolate cake. I freaked out - for a moment I thought I had a mouthful of penicillin!

As for okra, this part of the Wiki entry says it all:
The products of the plant are mucilaginous, resulting in the characteristic "goo" or slime when the seed pods are cooked; the mucilage contains a usable form of soluble fiber.

I'm starting to feel sorry for okra. I've always considered it to be a harmless and, indeed, pointless vegetable. It certainly isn't in the same diabolical league as kale or celery.

This morning as I was making and drinking my kale smoothie, I kept thinking "yeah, Magenta would call this Devil juice!!"

Calling it Devil juice made it taste that much better. haha.

Although I put so many other things in the smoothie, you don't actually taste the kale.

I love okra. I like it sliced and baked (least slime....actually, hardly any), I like it in soups, I like okra and tomatoes, and although I'm not real big on frying, I have always liked fried okra. So, there.

Chortle!

I don't want to know the answer to this, but I still have to ask: do you put raw kale in your smoothie?

I don't want to know the answer to this either, but again I have to ask: what else do you put in? (If you say celery and Brussels sprouts, I'll track you down - shouldn't be too difficult, I'll follow my nose - and throw okra at you.)

Well said. I couldn't really care one way or the other about okra, but I feel it is being much maligned. I'm glad it has one person to fight its corner.

yes, raw kale.

No brussel sprouts! Eww..

A handful of kale, a tablespoon of wheatgrass powder, a banana, some almond milk, maybe some coconut water, then either frozen strawberries or blueberries or both, top off with water. Blend, drink that, workout, ride bike to work.

Yup all the time. Not only because I wear black rimmed glasses(prescription mind you), but also because I have a weird taste in music. I don't watch much tv or listen to the radio(I often despise popular music).

Tempting, but I think I'll stick to gin.

Where I come from being called a "hipster" is tantamount to being called a wanker; I've been called a wanker plenty of times [I know, shocking isn't it?] but never a hipster. Mostly because I'm the wrong side of 30; wear glasses with prescription lenses instead of just plain glass; have never owned a pair of espadrilles; and realised vinyl records were a pile of shite back in 1988.

If you're still coming over to London for the London Drum Show, Larry, I wouldn't take it as a compliment if anyone calls you a hipster.

I'll preface this (only due to the title of the thread, mind you) by saying I have never been called a hipster, nor have I ever been fashionable or anti-fashionable, or cool or anti-cool, or anything relating to anything like that. But I just have to say that, not only do I disagree with you, but it is a fact that vinyl rocks. I don't have any proof, except for the magic that emanates from my 70's era Bose stand speakers...and that's all that's needed :)

I don't know what to do now. I can't have people thinking I'm trying to be a hipster at my age now can I?
I try not to follows trends, but everything you mentioned I like. Single Speed bike, check, but mine was vintage welded frame beach cruiser with monster handle bars. Built it myself.
Had to dump it at the dumpster when I moved out of my old apartment when my wife left me. It didn't sit at that dumpster for more than 2 minutes before somebody grabbed it. Damn.
-Vinyl? Had a good collection of rare Hendrix and some other classic rock, plus a lot of good 45's of punk music and stuff. It got stolen from my mom's house when I stored it there.
-Obscure musical taste? Check. Ever heard of John Gorka or a guy named Bookbinder? Probably not. Does anybody here even listen to Kimock? Anybody else here play the Autoharp?
Retro-style glasses? Nope. Don't need them, hopefully never will. But, if I did, chances are I would go for retro.
Ironic t-shirts? Of course! The shirt I was wearing at our gig last Saturday said "Don't bro me if you don't know me". Everybody digs that shirt for some odd reason.

Believe me, in no way do I try to be a hipster. I loathe people who try to be trendy, but I can't help my tastes. I would never wear tight pants or get a tattoo. Tattoos are for jailbirds and sailors, but now everybody want to get inked. I just don't think ink on skin is that big of a deal. Just being a drummer is cool enough for me.

Hipsters, absolutely, in Atlanta they wear bowling shirts, or, you know, that style of shirt. And skinny fitting trousers. Now I'll tell you about those trousers. I thought they looked great, much better than the dumb-looking old hippie jeans I was wearing. So you know what? It's Levis 511. And they fit me great! No big deal.

And they're not just jeans. They come in brown, and black, and gray, blah blah. I picked up two at Macy's on Sunday when they were having a special.

Hipsters also wear straw hats and have little mustaches and goatees. It's a real style, alright.

It's a sort of California 60s beatnik looking kind of thing. They should be carrying bongoes, and hanging around Ed Big Daddy Roth's garage.

About a month ago I was detasseling and some guy asked me what I was listening to. It was Coldplay. Apparently, you're a hipster if you pick corn while listening a 7 year old Coldplay album

I define hipster as someone who wears, listens to, or talks about any given things for the sole purpose of trying to stand out and be a special snowflake. Which is ironic, because they all end up doing the same crap.

If you are listening to something because you actually like it, and don't make a point of talking about the band all the time to seem cool, you're not a hipster.

I'm not very fond of hipsters. Neon framed Wayfarers, stupid hats, skin tight denim jeans, scarves in the summer time, etc. It's like a competition for who can look the most ridiculous. And the music....I can't wait till this trend of faux emo bluegrass dies and fades into obscurity.

Why did the hipster burn his mouth on pizza?






Because he ate it before it was "cool".
