I've tried in vain to get my friends to eat stinky tofu. Apparently there is something similar in Sweden.

+Richard Noggin Given its similarity to stinky cheese, I would think plenty of wine pairing would have worked.  But since many preparations are also spicy, then perhaps something on the sweet side, like a Riesling or Gewurtz.  :)

The Startling Photo Of Nixon's Resignation Lunch.

http://n.pr/1OdZmH1
A White House photographer captured the lunch that Richard Nixon ate before announcing his resignation. It's an unusual image of a humble meal as power is slipping away.

This was at a friend's house, and it is a way to enjoy good company and conversation.

Not all that different from a picnic BBQ with your friends. In fact, that's what we plan to do next. 

With the preparation, it is often not possible to bring the food all out at once. Some dishes needed the same oven at different temperatures. And if you want to serve the food at the right time, they have to be divided into courses.

Plus, you can't eat as much if you don't rest in between!! Pure gluttony. It is a sin!

How Air Pollution May Have Caused Catastrophic Flooding in China.

http://n.pr/1D5Xn11
Scientists believe soot that hangs over the mountains of Sichuan Basin — a byproduct of factories and cars — brought about the 2013 floods that devastated the region.

Well of course I knew the shrines - I visited Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo, and several local Gokoku Shrines across Japan.

No matter where you get the numbers (I got mine from Wikipedia), the vast majority of Taiwanese serving for Japan in WWII were drafted, and something like 30k of them died.

I personally believe all lives are equal, and a drafted soldier's death in 1945 should not be mourned less than a civilian's death in 1947 - I imagined myself into both situations and was literally horrified in both. But the public has decided to set up a memorial for one, while leaving the other muted in oblivion. That's quite a bit unfair to me.

Insanity in Europe over Greece.

It looks like the politicians on both sides screwed this one up badly, and a lot of people is going to lose a lot of money and are going to be pissed. 
Germany's latest plan is for Greece to "temporarily" exit the euro. This makes as little sense as it sounds.

germany has to show more generosity and understanding to greece and wish to see big harmonious pictures. from the beginning germany has prior benefit from the euro zone system. btw what about this? making some funds from the countries who get more benefits under euro zone system and support to other countries who has relatively smaller economic scale. i like europe so i wish all countries in europe help each other and grow together

FOOD POISONING!! Avoid! We were big fans of Mikuni for a long time, having been Northstar season passholders for a long time. We loved their beef-don that were served many years ago in the take-out section next door. Unfortunately, this place has been going downhill for some time, and I had really hoped that it would improve over the last few years, but we just had a food poisoning event here that is the straw that broke the camel's back. We will never be back again, to say the least. Last Sunday, I had family visiting from out of town, and we excitedly settled into our condo in the villiage and walked over to Mikuni for our very first meal on the mountain. The food was reasonably tasty, if not expensive ($13 for a sushi roll), but this was what I expected to pay in the village, so no big deal. We had two kid bento boxes, a California roll, two more sushi rolls, an Udon, and a beef teriyaki entree. Everyone was reasonably full and we walked out of the restaurant reasonably happy. The nightmare begun about 2-3 hours later. One of the kids on our trip started to throw up all over the bathroom, and this lasted all night. An obvious case of food poisoning! We happened to have a SF doctor friend who is also renting a condo nearby who came to check up on the kid, and confirmed it as a typical case of food poisoning. Given that the only other food she ate after lunch was a packaged chocolate bar (which I also had part of), I think this was pretty clear case of where the source was---Mikuni, a meal that I spent over $100+ for. The kid ended up missing the entire day of skiing, held up in the condo, vomiting water and Gatorade all day. We went to the restaurant to inform them of the issue on Wednesday. The assistant manager promised to talk to the supervising manager and get back to us in two days. They never called. We called again today, only to be told that it wasn't their responsibility, since no one else had called to tell them they got sick that day! Need I say more?!

Came here as part of a company offsite with close to 30 people. The service was efficient and professionally conducted. The guide offered plenty of explanation of the wildlife and was friendly and kept an eye on time. I only wish we could have paddled harder, but understate that they must accommodate abilities of all levels during a big group like ours.

This is the best restaurant in Barcelona when we recently visited the city. Reservations must be made 2 months in advance on the website at midnight CEST time, and I'm glad we did. This was not only a culinary experience that we remember, but I can already tell that we will keep telling the story of the amazing food here for years to come.

Good value, but quality seems to be going down some over time. My visit tonight left a bit of bad taste in my mouth given the amount of MSG and grease used in the cooking. Will likely to start avoid going here.

Good food and good service after coming down from the mountain. What else do you want? Had the squash bisque and the Lamb chops. Both well done and yummy. With 12 people at our table, service was good and prompt. Food came out at the right times. When we needed to add a wine, the service was swift.
