    Both...
    Biscuts and gravy for breakfast, then stew for supper.

    Nuclear power or coal?

    Well it is an either/or game, but okay...

    If the US gets off its arse and starts developing thorium reactors like China's currently whipping us like redheads over research for... nuclear (not nuke-ya-lerr). Coal dust's destroyed most of the priceless stonework in France and other parts of the EU due to its acidity over 200 yrs, and China's blowing smoke indiscriminately over Japan and Korea trying to catch up socio-economically with the West (they have the largest coal deposits in the world, after all... if you hate the weather outside, blame them). Time for it to go...

    If you got stuck on the side of a mountain and had no choice: bear meat, or wildcat meat (puma, bobcat, etc.)?

    Believe it or not, I have eaten both, (bobcat and black bear).
    The bobcat meat was white like lean pork and not at all strong tasting.
    Bear meat was dark and somewhat greasy. High cal no doubt.
    In survival mode, I would choose the bear meat, hands down.

    Mayo or Miracle Whip??

    Mayo -- Miracle whip is basically spiced mayo anyway, and if you make your own mayo at home, you can include all the ingredients in MW without any of the processed part or mold inhibitors (potassium sorbate) that makes sure your MW will keep for months on a shelf. If you make it at home, it won't be around long enough to need any of that garbage. :thumbsup:

    Mustard on a juicy perfectly-singed brat -- French's (standard US-style yellow mustard)... or spicy dijon-style mustard?

    (my preference is German Mittelscharfer-Senf, or medium-spicy mustard, that they put on my brats when I served over there -- hot with a bite but ungodly-good on pork sausage)

    Standard

    Today's music or music from the 80's and 90's?

    80s and 90s for sure. My reasons: Way less compression (more musical dynamics), interesting fad sounds (mostly synth), and serious shred from those days puts just about everything out now to shame.

    Dropping the soap, or driving a hummer to a Prius meet?

    Agree, '80s and '90s... though I am biased being over 40. :p

    Soap. Try doing that while in a hellish state pen like Attica or Ely... and welcome to the worst possible, and last, month of your life. When Prius owners suddenly become gang rapists, I'll behave accordingly. :mask:

    [Can you believe I was actually going to ask 'Seahawks or Broncos'? :roflmao:]

    Grapes -- fresh, or frozen? :hungry:

    Fresh...made into wine. Really, who buys frozen grapes? Those things taste strange.

    Numbness in your toes, or numbness in your fingers? (hint: I got both)

    Not buy, silly -- freeze fresh in your freezer. If you're a wine drinker, you should know that frozen grapes keep a wine chilled if it needs it, without diluting with ice. You're welcome. :laugh::thumbsup:

    No numb digits, since it's 75ºF outside here. ;)

    Obama. Reps had their eight years and blew it, in my vote anyway.

    Fries -- frozen baked crinkle or straight-cut fresh in peanut oil?

    Fresh most definitely. As a kid I would've preferred the fast-food fake fries ie. McD or BK.

    If forced to choose between body or brains in a mate ?
    A) physically unpalatable vs mentally attractive ?
    B) physically attractive vs mentally unpalatable ?

    If "unpalatable" is changed to "unhealthy," (the two don't always coincide,) does that change your answer ?

    EDIT: By the way, at least the Reps had a relatively cooperative congress. Since day one all the Reps in Congress have done is block, stall and sabotage. In the six years of this President, they've managed to block almost as many nominees and appointments as all other Presidents combined. Then they want to sit back and point at things that remain broken as if they weren't actively trying to prevent this Administration from fixing them. The "physical cliff" debacle proved they're perfectly willing to cut off the nose of this nation just to spite the face of one man in it. They like to pretend they're all policy fights but they refuse to support even their own ideas...

    Straight cut fresh, in peanut oil. I'll keep the grape thing in mind, but I prefer cool-room temp reds anyway.
    Not even going to touch the whole political debate other than BOTH sides are rubbish, have lied to, used the public, and are out for themselves anyway. Why cry about one when both are raping you in tandem?

    Dropped valve seats or melted pistons?

    A, and

    Definitely dropped seats. It would take far more wrong with an SPI to result in that much detonation, than simply being put together with the seat issue.

    I prefer fresh as well... though a *lot* of cooks in this country fail miserably at making them correctly. In Germany (actually all the EU), after cutting they're soaked in cold water, then fried at a lower temp, then fried higher to crisp the outside. This soak + two-step dip, makes ungodly miraculous fried 'taters, gents... it's a bit more work but totally worth the extra time... bonus if you fry in lard at 350-375. ;):thumbsup: However... I still have a weakness for crinkles, and oven baking is a tiny bit healthier.

    {Oh btw... usually whites need the chilling, not reds. Reds can get very tannin-bitter when chilled, even good ones. I drink Malbecs (or used to, before my pancreas sprung a leak). :thumbsup:}

    That partial frying is called blanching, BTW.

    I'm going with the first unanswered question, from kanak.

    Build it. Because nothing is more badass than building the very thing you drive, even if it isn't pretty, but all performance.

    wet dream...or wet nightmare?

    Music from the 90's. It was more dynamic and upbeat. ;)

    You know, I've never had either. But if given a guess, I'd rather climax in pleasant situation -- it is my dream after all! :p

    And I've been a lifelong tinkerer, if not always having the cash to do the big dreams (a nice kit GT40 replica like a Superformance or Safir, being the ultimate in my mind, anyway. Would need a house with garage, and that's not going to happen for a good long while.)

    Seemed like most of the video covered other vehicles; very little dedicated to telling the story of the '93 GT/T.

    Unfortunately its a compilation of all the footage I had of the car from other videos I had made over time. You may just need to skip through a few parts. ;)
