12. Smelts----

Boy that brings back memories. My mother would dip them in an egg wash, lightly flour them (guess you could add garlic powder, pepper, whatever) and fry them up in a skillet with about 1/2 inch or so of veg. oil. Cook till browned and crisp, drain on paper towels and lightly salt them while still hot. Heinz ketchup (we were from Pittsburgh area) as a dip. Good eating. We had them as a New Year's treat

I'm assuming they are gutted and cleaned already, if not gut them and snip off their heads - fins aren't a problem, but a few snips with scissors if you're so inclined.

I've been trying to get them in NE Florida and no one carries them. Do you have a source?

36. Ah, but mine had scissors kung fu decapitation and disembowelment...

and decapitation and disembowelment is considered pornography in some twisted circles.

Why smelts, not smelt? Is it a cultural/regional thing? Proper English? On the West Coast, if I fried a single one, or a whole pan full, I would say, "I'm frying trout".

37. Here, you'd be frying truchas but they'd better not be wild caught

since wild caught fish here are likely to be contaminated with heavy metals from a couple of centuries of old mine tailings.

In New England, people said "smelts." I suppose it was because a lot of the salt ponds near the shore smelt so bad.

38. How do you keep a fish from smelling?

Put a clothes-pin on its nose!




Years ago, when fish routinely turned belly up from pollution in Allegheny river, the fishermen created a new dish called "Allegheny Pine fish". They would nail their 'catch of the day' to a pine board and bake the Hell out of it. Then they would peel the fish away and eat the board.

5. I've had that happen before.

I wasn't looking up anything adult either.

Close the window and reopen it. It might take a few tries. It eventually works like normal.

13. Beware Google+

I stopped commenting on youtube years ago when they started forcing people tovattach their gmailcaccount. I use my gmail account for business, and I want to keep my business and entertainment/politics separate.

Finally the temptation overcame me. I just had to make a comment. This forces me to register for Google+. I did it thinking I could somehow keep this separate from my email. However the silly name I chose for issuing my video comments instantly became attached to my gmail account. The screenname remained on my gmail even after I deleted the Google+ account and swore never to attempt to comment on youtube again. When I finally found the obscure place in my gmail profile that stores this screenname, I could not delete it - only change it. I couldn't just put in spaces, either. I could only change it to something I could accept on my email. (not my real name, either - sometimes I use that email to register for stuff anonymously).

What an ordeal! How could Google so epically fail to understand that email users have privacy needs and thus it's a bad idea to chain it to random pop culture fan activity? This seems obvious.

Or perhaps in its struggle to force Google+ to happen, Google really did become evil.

because my ancient login, unconnected to anything Google, still works when I feel compelled to comment on one thing or another, like twice a year.

17. Is it any good for getting scrod?

A businessman arriving in Boston for a convention found that his first evening was free, and he decided to go find a good seafood restaurant that served scrod, a Massachusetts specialty. Getting into a taxi, he asked the cab driver, "Do you know where I can get scrod around here?" "Sure," said the cabdriver. "I know a few places... but I can tell you it's not often I hear someone use the third-person pluperfect indicative anymore!"
