    One Run Wonder

    I did a single Eldritch/Shenk/Pindle (Hell) with my Meteorb Sorc last night while I was making dinner. Shenk dropped a unique amulet, and when I tried clicking on it I was lagged out. Couldn't pick up anything. Crap! This was supposed to be just a real quicky run while my dinner was cooking (steak on the grill actually so it needed to be real fast), and I didn't even have any other characters in the game from my other computers. So I fire up Diablo on another PC and fortunately I can bring another character into the game, and am able to pick up the ammy. *phew* The sorc is still lagged out tho (which happens sometimes and really seems odd to me since I'm behind a router with both PC's, but anyway).

    As usual I'm always excited to get a unique ammy, but of course I'm thinking, "all this fuss and it's probably just another Nokozan". Much to my delight I identify it and it's a 26% Mara's! :clap:

    Bad thing is I got so caught up in what was going on I forgot about my steak and I burned it slightly. :bonk: Only slightly tho, it was still plenty tasty. :D

    Oh I didn't ruin it by any means. Just burned slightly on one side. I ate it with that side down. :teeth:

    Nice Find - must be nice to have 2 comps to run Diablo on - for me that would have been just another maybe item :)

    As far as I am concerned however steak that is cooked for more than about 2 minutes on each side is RUINED and the person concerned should be forced to eat the soles of my old hiking boots :lol:

    Chill

    Zappafan, I'm somewhat a new poster on these forums but have been reading the site for two years; I'm currently a 91 HC USW Ladder Necro (*vitenol96), but importantly, I'm a Frank Zappa fan myself. Have some live shows in tapes, some CD's, read about him some. Glad he finally (several years ago) got into the Hall of Fame. I love his style of compositional progressional rock.

    Mud Shark!

    Now listen here Oral Muffmuncher (Gotta love that Porn Name Generator) ... everyone with any taste knows a grilled steak (ie cooked on a BBQ) must be black and crispy, in fact the more burnt the better.

    2 minutes per side ... and it would still bleed when cut ... yucky !

    Trust me, I know these things ... my fireball sorc has done enough Cow runs leaving bbq steaks all over the screen :D

    Sorry Zappa-dude for the thread hijack, but I couldn't let Oral get away with blasphamy. Nice find with the Mara.

    Gotta love the randomness sometimes. My first hc ladder mfer (before dying) set out with 15-20 mf just to see what Meph would drop. I caught myself thinking "A skulder's would be awesome, yeah right".

    One dead Meph later, Unique Russet Armor.

    Then he died. :lol:

    Yeah, chiller.. inch thick steak, one minute per side.

    What is this ... a conspiracy ?

    1 minutes per side ... that damn thing would still be alive and moving ... BLACK ... the only way to ensure it is truly dead... and tasty.

    heh. If you want to eat a very very good steak, grill it for one minute on each side, then put it in a cast iron pan, pop in the oven.. 375 I think for another few minutes. My old roommate in college used to do that. Talk about juicy, and done 'all the way' :lol:

    Tasty? How is burned to a crisp tasty?

    If you want to burn everything, you might as well save yourself some money and eat SPAM :lol:

    A "Real Man" will eat his steak as long as it is hot and not moving! No, baking in the sun doesnt count it must of been cooked for some length of time!

    i personally prefer a slightly less cooked steak than Zappa described but you can bet your arse I would of ate it just as he did!

    Reminds me of my 21st Birthday, my Mother decided to get me this 20 oz Porterhouse and some Shrimp and her some Halabit (sp) and grill that up for my birthday dinner. My Step Father had to work and my brother was off to scouts so it allowed her to splurge for two of us and not 4.

    Anyway, I came downstairs when I got a good whiff of the meal to find my mother just crying like someone died to find out she got on the phone and lost track of time and burnt the steak much as Zappa described. By God I ate that thing, enjoyed EVERY crunchy bite and washed it all down with a few beers!

    There is a reason they offer Rare to Welldone as it still tastes great either way!

    LONG HORN HERE I COME!!!!!

    Why destroy a good piece of meat by cooking the snot out of it? My wife likes her steak 'black'. I just knock the hooves and horns off of mine. No more than 90 seconds on each side.

    I'm disappointed Wingblade - from your avatar I would have thought you preferred your meat on the hoof :D

    Meat should, no it MUST be cooked but it can never ever be burned, not a black fleck on the meat, and if it bleeds, so what? As long as its cooked I'm happy! (just to clarify, it has to be heated all the way trough)

    As long as its cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F its fine. Any lower than that though and you run the risk of food poisoning...or worse.

    Mara ... what's that ? This is a STEAK posting.

    I don't think I've ever seen a better thread hijacking than this. Not only that ... it happens to be a posting of our beloved moderator Zappa. Is nothing sacred ?

    Have none of you heard the expression "Black is Beautiful" ? And you all thought it had something to do with race or ancestry. No, foolish people ... it is an expression to describe how a steak should be cooked !!!

    Syxx
