Hungry? Well, let’s do something about that.


I have neither the patience nor the inclination to write about most things that are the “norm” for the manosphere, so I decided to go with something that I’m passionate and (somewhat) knowledgeable about: food.

Not too surprisingly, The Mighty Sumo is a carnivore. If I’m eating, there damn well better be meat involved (save the smarmy comments, jackasses). One of my favorite things to do is throw a couple of steaks on the grill (or Barbie, for our resident Kiwis & Aussies), but here in the Great Frozen Wasteland, that’s only an option for half of the year.

The alternative, though, is in some ways better. I’m talking about pan roasting, of course. That’s a bit of a misnomer, as there are 3 separate culinary techniques involved here, but calling it a seared, roasted and basted steak doesn’t have the same flair as “pan roasted steak”. Little bit of butter, garlic, thyme, and of course, beef and you have a fantastic plate of meaty goodness at any time of the year.

All you need to cook this is a properly seasoned cast iron pan and an oven. And a steak, of course. Living in the beef capital of Canada means that while beef is a little pricey, it’s not nearly as expensive ‘round these parts as it is in other places, so I eat a lot of it. Given the aforementioned reasonable pricing, I also tend to opt for better cuts, like ribeye. It’s ok, though; any decent grilling steak will work here.

Anyhow, to business – you’re going to need:

270 g beef ribeye
10 ml canola or grapeseed oil
30 g unsalted butter
1 garlic clove (smashed)
2 sprigs fresh thyme
salt and pepper as needed
a spoon

First off, pre-heat your oven to 400 F (205 C). After that’s taken care of, grab your cast iron pan and heat it over high heat until it’s smoking hot.

BTW, when cooking, white smoke is good. Black smoke, not so much. That’s not racist, it’s just the way things work.

To continue, season both sides of the steak liberally with salt and pepper. When the pan is hot, add the oil and steak, then LEAVE IT THE FUCK ALONE!!!! Seriously, don’t touch it. Have you ever been cooking meat, and had it stick to the surface when you try to flip it over? The reason for that is simple – the meat ain’t ready yet. When it is ready, it will release itself from the cooking surface, and then you can flip it. True story.

Anyhow, this will probably take about 3 or 4 minutes, and your steak will have a beautiful crust, and you can flip it over. Place the whole pan in the oven, and roast for 2 to 3 minutes, depending on the thickness of the steak. Take the pan out of the oven and get it back over medium heat, and add the butter, garlic, and thyme. Tilt the pan slightly, and use the spoon to baste the steak with the butter for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the steak from the pan and let it rest for 5 minutes before snarfing it down.

If any juices are released while the steak is resting, just pour them back over it before you eat it.

    Good and simple, Sumo! Even I can follow it. All my meat is farm kill and butchered by me. I think rib eye is what we call scotch fillet Down Under. I was tempted to cook it on my BBQ plate which is a better cooking surface than my pan, but I can’t put my barbie in the oven so I’ve decided on the pan instead. I’m at stage one (preheating the oven).

    A hint of a crunch at the first savage bite.
    Taste: Delicious as it looks.
    A1 for aroma.
    Visuals excellent.

    Overall: unadulterated, unfuckedup, straight forward, honest country man’s meat dish fit for a king.

    Hint: the mashed home-grown spuds and onion rings complement it awfully well.

    Okay, that vile trick played upon me by the Bloomer has led me to copy/paste the recipe I promised. I would have preferred to inject some smartassy Sumo-speak into it, but this is an emergency.

    2 Racks Ribs
    30g Kosher Salt
    10g Black Pepper
    600g Yellow Onions (Large Diced)
    60g Peeled garlic (Smashed)
    700ml Stout
    1L Chicken, beef, or pork stock
    120g Granulated Sugar

    Preheat your oven to 350F and turn grill to high
    Start by removing the membrane from the back of the ribs
    Season both sides liberally with salt and pepper
    Grill the ribs until golden brown on both sides
    Meanwhile, in a large roasting pan, sautee onion and garlic
    Deglaze the pan with stout
    Add the stock and bring to a simmer
    When ribs are golden add them to the simmering liquid
    Add stock to cover the ribs
    Double wrap with foil to make a good seal
    Braise in the oven for 2hrs at 350F
    Lower the temperature to 250F, braise an additional 90 mins
    Remove from oven and cool over an ice bath until room temperature
    Place in fridge and allow to cool completely in cooking liquid

    The next day:
    Remove ribs from Liquid and warm in oven at 350F on a bake sheet
    Slather with your favorite BBQ sauce and warm for 20-30 mins

    – recipe courtesy of Chef Alexi Boldireff, S’Wich Food Truck

    If you’re in a hurry, you can skip the “cool down” step and just start snarfing, but letting the ribs cool will infuse more flavor into them. 😉

    ***No triggers, but please skip this over if you don’t care about the previous comment from Missattempts.***

    There are 2 parts of Missattempts moved comment I wanted to discuss/clarify:

    Why does she sympathsise with MGTOW and “creeps” that can’t get any? (I don’t mean to say that those two cataglories are the same.)

    I sympathize with MGTOW because I have experience in being manipulated to serve the desires of another person who didn’t care in the slightest how it affected me as a person. Though the circumstances are different, I cannot help but see a connection between those events and a husband or father being dragged through an uncaring divorce court or living with a meanspirited/solipistic spouse. It was a terrible series of things that happened to me, but I hardly hold any sort of majority ownership of Crap That Life Throws At You. Plus, the ability to sympathize and empathize with others is a trait that helped us to become an organized society in the first place. “Do unto others” and all that jazz.

    I sympathize with incels/older virgins because I can quite easily imagine that their desire for touch is the direct opposite of my previous desire for a complete lack of touch. Both are painful to deal with on a daily basis, and it is not good for a significant minority of our population to be/feel unloved. Again, it simply my nature to care about other beings. Unfortunately, some are so consumed by their frustrations and anger that they begin to give in to their destructive side, and start to believe the only way for them to have any peace is if women are reduced to lobotmized cattle or deliberately maimed/made ugly so men don’t desire them at all. It is this type of person I cannot sympathize with, and no longer try to.

    But, my God, to associate with a wack a doodle F.W.B. that encourages her to sleep with other men? Doesn’t anyone understand the meaning of love?

    I try not to bring up “feelings” unnecessarily here, because I know various commenters will take it and run, using it as some “evidence” of overt femininity on my part.

    Screw it. This needs to be said. It hurts when you constantly question the care and consideration my lover shows to me and I to him. It is a slap to my face each time you state he isn’t “worthy” of me or that by wanting me to have more life experiences he “obviously” doesn’t love me at all. I want you to stop doing this, Missattempts. It is untrue, undignified, and most of all, highly inaccurate.

    My FwB wants me to have more partners *because* he cares for me. He knows that a part of me wants to experience intimacy with other people besides him, but that I can’t yet. If I was able to enjoy pleasuring other men (and perhaps some women as well) it would indicate a HUGE leap forward in my mental progress. Being able to handle and seek out touch from someone besides him is what he’s hoping for me, NOT for me to become an unloving slut who simply has sex because they can or because they mistakenly believe it “validates” their existence. We are sex partners, yes…but more than that, we are close friends. He wants to be able to clap me on the back and congratulate me on having sex with an attractive partner, the same as other men do with their friends. Yes, I’m physically female and perhaps a bit “blue-pill” and naive as other commenters have stated. I’ll own that. But I don’t think or act like one, and he has accepted this masculine mind of mine for what it is. For what I am.

    What type of love this is, I don’t rightly know. Maybe there isn’t a word for it, or perhaps it’s a combination we have yet to create. But if accepting someone for who they are and receiving the same in return is not love, then what is?

    To annoy Louise Mensch. And five more reasons for voting UKIP

    1. Louise Mensch. I once Tweeted “There is no more loathsome Tory than the kind which sees UKIP as a bigger problem than Labour, the Greens, the SNP and the Lib Dems.” It was her I meant.

    2. Nigel Farage. The very worst of all possible outcomes of this election is if Farage doesn’t win South Thanet. He has fought in the teeth of the most scabrous and unjustified Establishment hate campaign I think I’ve ever witnessed and thoroughly deserves to be in Westminster so that he can hold that Establishment to account.

    3. The Manifesto. Never mind the debate over Libertarian UKIP versus Red UKIP. The manifesto’s pretty sound. (Independently costed too). You look at their policies and you think: “God, wouldn’t it just be amazing if a party like this ever got into power.” Well stop fantasising and put your money where your mouth is. Obviously you won’t get a UKIP majority this time (though to read by the rabid tone of some of the comments below my piece yesterday, some of you are sufficiently delusional to imagine otherwise) but “from tiny acorns…. etc”. In any case, see 4.

    4. For UKIP this election isn’t necessarily about winning, but gaining sufficient share of the vote – second places are very important – to qualify for the enhanced funding which will put them in good stead to fight 2020 really hard.

    5. If you don’t vote UKIP, you’re David Cameron’s bitch. No really, you are – and this goes way back, possibly even to before the last general election when Cameron and his advisers made a cynical calculation: it doesn’t matter if we drift left because our heartland has nowhere else to go, so as well as natural Tories we can hoover up the squishy centrists, disaffected Blairites, etc. Yeah, that worked, Dave. That’s why you won such a stonking majority you didn’t have to go into Coalition with your ideological polar opposites. No, wait…

    6. Not just for disaffected Tories, yadda yadda. I put that one in because I know some of you get affronted by the idea that UKIP are the true heirs to Thatcher and you’d never consider yourself natural Conservatives and the reason that you were attracted to UKIP is that they’re completely different and resemble nothing that has ever existed in the entire history of politics. To which I say: “Yeah. Wotevs.” Now off you go and unseat whichever northern Labour candidate in your constituency deserves unseating.

    “They have shells.” True. “Shellfish” is a culinary and fisheries term, so very much open to regional interpretation. For regulatory purposes, “shellfish” are molluscs with shells.

    That man should be P.M.

    To be realistic, what’s the best UKIPpers can expect – a handful of seats and about 13% of the total vote? The way they seemingly rig the polls over there, it’s damn confusing down here, I tell ya. Is the most likely outcome a Labour-led coalition govt, or is it not?

    Sooner or later, you’ll have to deal with it. He’s getting too personal.
    Apologies are unnecessary. I wasn’t affected directly.

    About incels, they are suffering and it’s not just sex. They’re touch deprived and unloved. When I hear feminists say that men aren’t owed sex, the hair at the back of my neck stands up. While I can’t directly assail the statement, as it confirms the need for mutual consent, there is an element of condecension from a priviliged standpoint.
    I have to wonder what will happen when these hypergamic hussies end up sidelining eighty percent of the men and it’s undeniable. That would constitute a social problem. A big social problem.
    Speaking of hypergamic hussies, on his video today, Sandman told how the only interest he was getting on Tinder was from minority and fat women. He estimated that the SMV has discounted his maleness by a full three points. I am presuming that he is high SMV.

    I’ve seen betting companies favouring a labia bled coagulation. Pros tend to favour a tory one. All very knife edge stuff.

    I’d like to think that UKIP’s actual vote breaks way above the 14ish% that the anti-UKIP biased pollsters and the pollsters using crap methods to predict the UKIP vote say. (One pollster said 18% recently).

    But really this time round is more about:
    1) having people see UKIP as a proper contender in 2020 because it comes second in lots of places in 2015
    2) the vote in 2015 determines funding for political parties going forward…points make prizes. UKIP is not rich.
    3) putting the wind up the liblabcon. Lot of signs of panic in the tory party recently. Nutters and fruitcakes -> they’ll have to come home to the tories -> please come back to the tories -> scary labour+snp commie coalition (so vote tory). The polling results are rock-steady. The tories say that many kippers will have a last minute, on the way to the polling station even, change of heart. The kippers say ^(*&()&()&%^&% that and that there are many people being shy about voting UKIP when asked, but come the day…

    Doubt I’ll sleep much on Thursday night. Might investigate key results, specially for potential ‘Portillo moments’.

    I’ve already voted, but the incumbent MP will likely remain*. The UKIP vote might entertain.

    “business of adjusting results by reference to who they voted for last election”

    really does down UKIP because UKIP was very fringe, it got 3% last General Election (2010). (cf 35% in the euros last year).

    the other main trick is to prompt, “are you intending to vote Lib, Lab, Con…?” and not prompt explicitly for UKIP. Some pollsters pull this one, not all.

    Sounds like the Oort cloud to me…but with magical Space-Unicorns called ‘Spacelings’ iirc (read the books 25 years ago, at least) Frederik Pohl and Jack Williamson had a source of the good shit – allegedly. P’raps acid too.

    Far beyond the orbit of Pluto, half-mythical bodies circle the Solar System–the Reefs of Space, unknown, shrouded in mystery, the goal of human conquest, the obsession of the Plan of Man, tyrannical ruler of Earth. The Reefs of Space brings humanity to the brink of the stars. Steve Ryeland, enslaved by Earth’s tyrannical Plan of Man computer, is given the world’s most important job—to develop a “jetless drive,” an extraordinary new space propulsion mechanism.

    Yet the most important thing on Steve’s mind was not his work, but the iron collar locked securely around his neck. Filled with a lethal charge of explosives, it could be detonated any time the Plan of Man considered him too much of a risk.

    That’s why he had to obey every order, and succeed at his experiments. Only then, perhaps, could he use the jetless drive himself… and escape to the safety of the half-mythical Reefs of Space, strange formations rumored to exist somewhere beyond the orbit of Pluto. But if he failed, the next step would be the Living Body Bank—a scientific horror chamber from which no one ever returned.

    http://conservativewoman.co.uk/william-walter-a-farage-victory-in-thanet-spells-disaster-for-the-cameroons/

    And so it is that we find ourselves in South Thanet. For all the Ukip bluster, you can forget Clacton, or Rochester; there’s only one Ukip battleground that really matters at this election.

    The outcome has profound implications for the future path of the Conservative Party (and, for that matter, Labour). A Farage victory in Thanet spells disaster for the Cameroon agenda. The Tory leader – or more likely his successor – will have little choice but to shift to the Right; to take a tough line on immigration, Europe, foreign aid and defence. Forced to reconnect with the Tory base, hoody hugging and husky selfies will be out, replaced instead by a return to a more traditional Conservative agenda.

    [snip]

    A Farage win, however, combined with a Labour, Lib-Dem wipe-out in Scotland at the hands of the socialist Scottish nationalists will likely see a redrawing of the political divide not witnessed since the heady days of the early eighties when the SDP broke away from an increasingly extremist Labour Party. A Tory shift to the Right to counter Ukip, matched by an already left-of-centre Labour Party pulled even further left by a necessity to appease their backroom SNP bedfellows, could see British politics go back to the future.

    Centrism will be out; a real choice will be in. Politics might just get interesting.

    Religion clearly has pros and cons. Looking at where we are, I’d probably give Christianity the over all nod as a social movement. Again, there won’t be an argument because where I live and when I live, religion makes no difference in my day to day life. I understand very well that things are different in the USA. Maybe the brain blip is part genetic? And we exported the religious ones some centuries ago? An interesting question for the brain scanners and geneticists to work out.

    Recent archaeology uncovered a sealed-off area in an ancient Egyptian tomb. The workers had drawn pictures of the Pharaoh on the walls. The only god-like aspect of their depiction of the God King was the monumental size of his dick. He was using it in a most ungodly manner, dogging maidens and even stoking the arse of his horse as it pulled him along in his chariot. Not much reverence or fear of the hereafter in evidence there.

    Recently I seem to read about more online love scams, ppl sending lots of money to people they fall for who they have never even met. It seems to happen primarily in the western countries–esp US, UK and Australia. There are more women than men falling victim to these, but there are also men who’ve gone broke this way. I know they’ve been very foolish (and there are some very evil unempathetic people taking advantage of this), but I think it’s also an indication that the romance market in the west is getting screwed up and it’s harder and harder for people to find loving relationships.

    It’s harder for us to understand nowadays because we know so much about these tricksters, but say 5 years ago, many people had not heard much about the internet love scams. People defrauding their lovers out of money may have gone on for a long long time, but doing it thru the internet is relatively new because widespread internet usage is relatively new.
