CREAMY scrambled eggs with...CORNSTARCH!

3 large eggs
1 1/2 tablespoons whole milk (1/2 tablespoon for each egg)
1 3/4 teaspoons potato starch or cornstarch (1/2 + 1/8 teaspoon for each egg)
Salt to season
3 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 tablespoon for each egg)

First, crack 3 eggs into a medium bowl.

Then, in a separate cup or bowl, evenly whisk together the milk and cornstarch until it's lump-free (don’t mix them directly with the eggs or you’ll get lumps).
Add the milk and cornstarch mixture to your eggs, and beat until smooth. Season with salt.

Heat a non-stick skillet over high heat until hot, then add the butter (should sizzle right away). Wait until the butter’s melted and bubbly, but before it browns…
Add the beaten eggs. Wait for 3 seconds without stirring anything, until the edges of the eggs start to bubble up…

Then remove the skillet from the heat (yes, remove!), and start stirring the eggs, making 1 full circle per second… 1, 2, 3….
4, 5, 6, 7…8, 9, 10, 11…(If you use a mini skillet instead of a large one, it may need a few more seconds)... for about 11 to 12 seconds.

The eggs will have absorbed all the butter, but remain partially undercooked (add about 5 seconds more to every 3 extra eggs you’re scrambling, but I wouldn’t do more than 6 at once).

This is when you transfer them onto a plate. Do not wait until they look fully cooked!

Here we go again. Sanders - Clinton redux.

This time it's Sanders - Warren.
And once again we're tearing the party apart.
Way to go Dems.
Four more years for Trump.

I'm 78. I did not want my last years to be like this.

I don't know how long I have left.
Actuarially it could be 5-7 years, but who knows.

I suffered one fool in the white house and we somehow managed to survive it.
Sort of, oh except for the Iraq 'war'.
Now I've got a totally incompetent narcissistic idiot.

On top of that I learn (suspicions confirmed) that MY government lied their asses off about Viet Nam, up and down, backwards and forwards, inside out.
MY war.

Fuck this.
I'm done.
I no longer salute when the flag goes by.
I don't recite the pledge of allegiance any more.

I will die a bitter old man who late in life discovered that his nation was NOTHING like what he had been sold all of his life.

And global climate change?
Don't even get me started.
