    In fact, I would venture to guess that every single apple pie ever made has been scrumptious. On top of that, there has been one apple pie that fell short of delicious and went on to become a rubarb.

    But don't take my word for it.

    Carl fucking Sagan agrees with me. Why else would he be having apple pie?

    I think you need to re-read this thread, paying close attention to Coach Josh's post about nutmeg.

    A la Mode, FTW.

    ^^^^ Bullshit:


    You can't have it both ways, either the "Japanese will never, ever question their teachers, for example. They'll remain silent rather than ask questions. Group is far more important to Japanese than Americans. Most Americans wouldn't have a problem calling a teacher out on his or her ignorance (got me in trouble a time or two...)" or they have and will (as I have pointed out).

    I understand about the baker thing. Some of those people are just too damn sensitive about their products, but it is VERY difficult to screw up an apple pie.

    The crust can be too dry and flakey to the detriment of allowing the filling seep out. By venting the filling, you lose the elasticity of the bottom crust which will lend itself to becoming soggy instead of 'firm'.

    Like I said, it is VERY easy to screw up an apple pie.

    Another piece of Karate history that you may or may not know is that most of the well known names of historical Okinawan Karate, including Gichin Funokoshi had many teachers through their years of leaning. Some would go from teacher to teacher trying to learn this technique or that kata. Choki Motubu had to secretly watch his brother be trained by his father. He also got thrown out of dojos for bad behavior. Yet he would study as much as he could on his own and provoke fights with others just to try out techniques. There are all kinds of stories of karate students of old questioning, testing and eventually leaving their teachers. It really wasn't all that different from modern MMA philosophy.

    Bah. You don't know anything about it.

    A student could not speak up against a teacher and still go against said teacher's wishes.





    ...and PIE!
    APPLE PIE!!!!

    Yeah, ok that is my mistake, thinking that karate students left their masters, started their own styles, went to train with others without ever getting into an argument with them. What was I thinking?

    We'll leave it at that. Go to McDonalds and have an apple pie.

    Yet, could a student not also speak up using not his words but his actions against an unactionable instructor whose words also speak much about the dialog between teacher and student and their againstness.

    Yahtzee. Thanks for playing.
