possession of bacon covered in an unknown substance
'Merkins discombobulated by Brown Sauce perhaps?
A Virginia man is due to appear before a Grand Jury in February having been caught in his neighbour's garden while drunk, armed, wearing a camouflage mask and carrying "a suspicious bag of bacon". Evan Cater mugshot Suspicious bacon: Evan Cater poses for Amherst County cops Evan Patrick Cater, 31, of Madison Heights, was …
Tricky. Depends on the recipe.
Using rabbits as a proxy: the carcass is about 60% edible and gross weight (cat) about 4kg ...so 2.4kg of usable cat. Assuming high quality catsup with at least 50% emulsified cat and other ingredients liquid, that's nearly 6 liters of "brown" catsup per cat.
However, "red" catsup is a different matter. You only get around 50ml of blood per kilo of cat so that's about 2.5 cats per liter.
[*] I keep pet rabbits. If Gastropubs think it is OK to serve rabbit without general outrage, I reserve the right to devise cat recipes ;)
Came wondering the same
He's charged with "felony wearing a mask in public, misdemeanor trespassing, public intoxication and carrying a gun while intoxicated"
..of all that it's wearing a mask in public that's a felony!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!one!!!!!!!!!!one!!one
Only in "the land of the free*"
*free of sanity, presumably?
Virginia borders Washington DC, where anything even remotely related to "terrorism" is considered illegal.
Well, terrorism in the sense that a brown person devotedly following their religion is a terrorist, but a white guy screaming about how we should kill all the gays and bomb abortion clinics is just a patriot exercising "Freedom of Religion / speech"
'Well, terrorism in the sense that a brown person devotedly following their religion is a terrorist, but a white guy screaming about how we should kill all the gays and bomb abortion clinics is just a patriot exercising "Freedom of Religion / speech""
@COG, let's break down this diatribe of yours, shall we?
> "'Well, terrorism in the sense that a brown person..."
Here we have the race card. Sir, are you legally allowed to play that card? I'd hate to think a whitebread kinda guy was trying to generically guilt me on color.
> "...devotedly following their religion..."
I assume you refer to Islam? The 'religion' which accounts for 95% of all deaths worldwide due to terrorism? That one?
> "...is a terrorist,..."
Says your straw man...
> "...but a white guy screaming..."
Since you don't specify, I have to assume you refer to all white guys. Well, you're correct. All us white guys scream all the time. We're just filled with rage, that's why we riot at the drop of a hat... ..oh wait, that's some of those 'non-white people' you mentioned earlier. BLM I think they call themselves...
> "...about how we should kill all the gays and bomb abortion clinics..."
Is this what fills your dreams when you gently lay your head upon the pillow at night? Tsk.
> "...is just a patriot exercising 'Freedom of Religion / speech'."
Actually, I believe that inciting murder is definitely against the law in the US. Since you think otherwise you might want to re-examine your worldview for cracks.
> I assume you refer to Islam? The 'religion' which accounts for 95% of all deaths worldwide due to >terrorism? That one?
As opposed to the US that (in the 70's and 80's) accounted for the majority of UK terrorism deaths in the UK by liberally funding the IRA?
Glass houses, stones.
> "As opposed to the US that (in the 70's and 80's) accounted for the majority of UK terrorism deaths in the UK by liberally funding the IRA?"
Gee, and here I was thinking that the IRA was a home-grown problem! I didn't know that a handful of misguided kooks in the US caused all that death and destruction with just a few donations. You Brits sure are easily manipulated!
While the operational IRA were very much a local group, its finances very much relied on monies from the USA. Without regular payments from the Irish and Catholic clubs (and such like) of Boston, New York and other towns the Provos would have run out of cash and stopped their campaign much much earlier.
Thats why some Brits are often a bit wary of USA politicians with Irish surnames.......Kerry, Reagan, Kennedy, O'Malley, to name a few.
No, not O'Bama....don't think thats Irish
I didn't know that a handful of misguided kooks in the US caused all that death and destruction with just a few donations. You Brits sure are easily manipulated!
So you have evidence that the money for arms and munitions came from a "handful of misguided" millionaires rather than many small donations from kooks who enjoyed the idea of Brits being blown apart?
Yes, Brits are very easily manipulated by explosives. Perhaps Merkins aren't. Maybe that needs testing.
Citation please and why weren't the "handful of misguided kooks" arrested under terrorism charges?
Since planning to commit a crime is also an offence, could one be charged with 'conspiracy to wear a mask in public'?
Also, if you hear of someone planning to wear a mask but don't report them, do you become 'accessory to conspiracy to wear a mask in public'?
Virginia, as well as the rest of the South in the USA, for decades had problems with the KKK.
A cheerful group, known for cross burning rallies, practicing lethal vigilante justice, and violently enforcing segregation.
All while hiding anonymously behind their signature white robe and hooded mask.
Finally, most Southern states passed laws against adults wearing masks in public, and within a generation the KKK went from feared hooded goons to laughable, mostly low IQ individuals, known now for their bake sales, xenophobic marches and demonstrations.
So, the laws against masks in public made sense once, and are mainly kept for purpose like this, where it's added as another charge to pad out the arrest, but otherwise ignored
I'm pretty sure we still call pork chops, pork chops.
The back bacon being referenced to should be around an eighth of an inch in thickness or 0.0227th of a linguine.
Crispy is also good but not always a requirement.
See this for NSFW bacon on bacon action, enough to cover any bacon lovers kink...
That which our "old country" cousins call bacon more closely resembles what we former colonials would call ham and comes from a completely different porcine region*. Both are quite delectable, but distinctly different. Personally, I disagree with your assertion that "if you can chew it, it isn't done yet." My wife likes her bacon that way - WELL done bordering on charred. I leave mine a bit chewy with just a little bit of "crispy." All a matter of preference, really.
* shoulder, if memory serves, whereas American bacon is from the pork belly.
I beg to differ, massively!
UK bacon is not properly cured, and instead injected with water.
It doesn't fry like bacon should, making an awful sludge in the pan.
The fat in streaky bacon is the best part. Lean meat isn't very good for you. You would get sick if you tried to live on lean meat, unlike living on fat which works just fine.
You'll know in 10 years time that I'm right. Until then keep following the industry's advice, and shorten your life.
UK bacon is not properly cured, and instead injected with water.
Well that depends on what you buy. Cheap bacon - and every bit of Danish that I have tasted, maybe. Proper bacon - even available in well know retailers is properly cured. Come TTIP, no doubt US manufacturers will be able to get their are of the 'bacon - I don't believe it' action in the UK as well I suppose. Sigh...
Where do you shop then? Please tell us so that I (and others) can avoid it like the plague
My Local Butcher would come at you with his meat cleaver if you suggested that his 'dry cure' had any water in it.
The same goes for the suppliers at my local farmers market.
Pay crap and get crap.
I go by the rule that ALL supermarket bacon has water and god know what else added. My bacon supplier has his own smoker as well. Dry cures, no water.
If you don't have a local butchers (quite the rarity these days lets be honest) then there's probably a good butcher at your local farmers market.
Even better if it's the farmers themselves selling the sliced goodness, they've got a vested interest in making sure it's the finest examples of bacon and usually it's not that much more than the mass produced stuff from the super market.
You get better bacon for pretty much the same price, they get more profit (because of lack of middle men) and everyone's a winner since any veggie family members can busy themselves by the veg stall too (that said there's a pair of women who do some of the best lettuce and tomatoes for when you want to turn breakfast into lunch without calling it brunch)
Sounds like a fully qualified numpty. Doesn't live in the area for a year and gets to know his neighbors by having them sign a petition against his irresponsible behavior. The lots in the area are only about an acre and certainly not adequate to set up a shooting range in the back yard unless it's BB guns. Hell it's only about 250 yards between Sage and Ridgeview Lanes.
You sir, have never tried middle, back or streaky. Please define non-nasty bacon.
My bacon mission around the world.
Spain - Streaky with minimal bacon.
Germany - Streaky with minimal bacon and strange blobs of gristle within the bacon.
Turkey - Streaky with minimal bacon and strange blobs of gristle within the bacon.
Philippines - Streaky but made of american hotdog stuff.
Eire - Streaky but quite pleasant.
Turkey bacon (not country related) - Fuck off
I would also like to point out that the tastiest bacon in the world does not contain water, it does not cook and produce white scus, it is a treasure to behold and in this day and age it's getting harder and harder to find a proper butchers as opposed to those that buy a load of tripe.
...My bacon mission around the world....
Jowl bacon (American) - Streaky, wider than other varieties. Quite nice for sandwiches.
And for the non-pig-eating people of the world:
Beef bacon - Streaky, from the same cut as most American bacon, but more meaty as it is beef.
Macon - Made from mutton. Just found out about this and now have to try it.
Gribenes - Turkey or chicken skins. Pushing the envelope a bit, but satisfyingly crunchy.
Vegetarian bacon - See comment concerning turkey bacon.
Bacon style even varies across the UK, just look at the chunks of pig you would get in Yorkshire.
Much supermarket cheap stuff has followed the Danish style.
There are many varieties, of which the American stuff you would get at iHop, is streaky bacon - one of those products that is made for the convenience of the producer not the consumer.
"Canadian Bacon" is just what you Americans call overcooked ham. But how can you hate on it? Sure it isn't bacon, but its still a piece of a pig, which is by far the most delicious of animals.
But at least its not the abomination that is American "Cheese".
Firstly, True American cheeses can be damned good.
-The technical term is "processed cheese food"-
Now that stuff is a true abomination, and these days has moved so far from real cheese that it's now called "Pasteurized processed cheese food spread".
That stuff is less edible than the plastic it's wrapped in, and doesn't even have to contain milk, or any other recognizably edible substance.
"Firstly, True American cheeses can be damned good."
Certainly not denying that, one of the best pieces of cheddar I ever had came from a dairy in the US. Its that weird waxy, bright yellow stuff that is labeled "American Cheese" that , for some reason, doesn't spoil, that I find grotesque. Our bodies harvest nutrients, proteins, etc. from food in a very similar manner to spoilage, so if something doesn't spoil, is it also not digestible?

The violation of any provisions of this section is a Class 6 felony.
Of course, a true bacon lover would describe the American variety as "suspicious", even were it not served up coated in an unknown substance by a tooled-up masked man with a few liveners under his belt.
I thought the only stuff that might be called bacon in the US at least was smuggled across the border from Canada, along with prescription drugs at least than killing prices?
When I were a lad one of my first jobs was working a shop that sold what we called 'provisions'. One of which was bacon. (This was in the UK)
What we used to get for our 'bacon' was whole sides of pig that had been cured in a traditional way, no chemical added water etc.
This 'side of bacon' as it was called then had to be jointed up and then the joint was then sliced by hand on a slicing machine, basically a hand turned blade on a flywheel. And we used every part of the side to produce everything from streaky (the belly) bacon to hocks, gammon steaks and joints, back, long-back, oyster cut not a bit was wasted. Yum yum.
Not really sure what the point of this is other than the pleasant memory of real bacon hand cut and ever so tasty.
The icon? Because it was the food of gods
And it had rind... where has that gone? Even my butcher (also in the 'WATER IN MY BACON!!! wait till I get my cleaver' camp) looks at me as if I'm mad when I ask.
Apparently, I'm in a minority of one and it's easier to remove the skin before slicing the bacon.
Please think of the children who believe scummy over cooked tasteless 'stuff' in a sweet subway roll (Oh please don't get me started on that) covered in gloop is a bacon sandwich.
Yep rind and all, you'd open the fridge (more of a cold room really) and there would be the sides all hanging head down, looking literally like a suntanned pig, smoked sides looking dark brown and the un-smoked looking like a light tan. To me the rind was one of the best bits!!
