How To make people uncomfortable


I'm writing HowTos at work too, so why not just put some of those creative juices to work here, eh? This is (could be, uh, would be if you participated) a highly interactive HowTo. Other interactive posts, however, have all failed to cause any interaction. Put bluntly, they have ALL sunk into oblivion like Atlantis,… Continue reading How To make people uncomfortable

The important thing is to understand the concept and apply a dash of spices, a soupcon of common sense, lashings of  common culinary capability, keep it low and experiment, experiment, experiment.
