Just time for a quick post tonight - have to get ready for the big night out. Haven't managed to get WAP up & running, so no mobile posts tonight.

Came across something a tad disturbing today at work; New Scientist reports that the Air Force Research Lab (US) in New Mexico has recently finished testing testing a new microwave weapon on human volunteers. Who volunteers for weapons tests? The people Dr Kevorkian rejects?

Had a section lunch at 'Jewel of India' over at Manuka to farewell one of the team. Great food, slight kick afterwards (I'm not really tolerant of chilli or spicy curries). Reminded me of a joke that came to me via e-mail a while back:


Notes from an Inexperienced Curry Taster Named FRANK, who was visiting
Phoenix, Durban from the U.S. "Recently I was honoured to be selected as a
judge at a curry cook-off. The original person called in sick at the last
moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking
directions to the beer tent when the call came. I was assured by the other
two judges (couple of local Indians) that the curry wouldn't be all that
spicy, and besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting,
so I accepted."
Here are the scorecards from the event:
Curry # 1: Manoj's Maniac Mobster Monster Curry
JUDGE ONE: A little too heavy on tomato. Amusing kick.
JUDGE TWO: Nice, smooth tomato flavour. Very mild.
FRANK: Holy shit, what the hell is this stuff? You could remove dried paint
from your driveway. Took me two beers to put the flames out. I hope that's
the worst one. These charo's are crazy.
Curry # 2: Applesamy's Afterburner Curry
JUDGE ONE: Smoky, with a hint of pork. Slight Jalapeno tang.
JUDGE TWO: Exciting BBQ flavour, needs more peppers to be taken seriously.
FRANK: Keep this out of reach of children! I'm not sure what I am supposed
to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me
the Heimlich manoeuvre. They had to rush in more beer when they saw the look
on my face.
Curry # 3: Farouk's Famous Burn Down the Barn curry
JUDGE ONE: Excellent firehouse curry! Great kick. Needs more beans.
JUDGE TWO: A beanless curry, a bit salty, good use of red peppers.
FRANK: Call Colesburg, I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I
have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now, get me more
beer before I ignite. Barmaid pounded me on the back; now my backbone is in
the front part of my chest. I'm getting face-less from all the beer.
Curry # 4: Barbu's Black Magic
JUDGE ONE: Black bean curry with almost no spice. Disappointing.
JUDGE TWO: Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other
mild foods, not much of a curry.
FRANK: I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste
it, is it possible to burn-out taste buds? Savathree, the barmaid, was
standing behind me with fresh refills; that 300 lb. girl is starting to look
HOT, just like this nuclear waste I'm eating. Is curry an aphrodisiac?
Curry # 5: Laveshnee's Legal Lip Remover
JUDGE ONE: Meaty, strong curry. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding
considerable kick. Very impressive.
JUDGE TWO: Curry using shredded beef; could use more tomato. Must admit the
cayenne peppers make a strong statement.
FRANK: My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead and I can no
longer focus my eyes. I farted and four people behind me needed paramedics.
The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her curry had given me
brain damage. Savathree saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer
directly on it from a pitcher. I wonder if I'm burning my lips off? It
really pisses me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming.
Curry # 6: Vera's Very Vegetarian Variety
JUDGE ONE: Thin yet bold vegetarian variety curry. Good balance of spice and
JUDGE TWO: The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic.
> > FRANK: My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous,
sulfuric flames. I shat myself when I farted and I'm worried it will eat
through the chair. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except
Savathree, she must be kinkier than I thought. Can't feel my lips anymore. I
need to wipe my ass with a snow cone!
Curry # 7: Sugash's Screaming Sensation Curry
JUDGE ONE: A mediocre curry with too much reliance on canned peppers.
JUDGE TWO: Ho Hum tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of curry
peppers at the last moment. I should note that I am worried about Judge
Number 3. He appears to be in a bit of distress as he is cursing
FRANK: You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I wouldn't
feel a thing. I've lost the sight in one eye, and the world sounds like it
is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with curry, which slid
unnoticed out of my mouth. My pants are full of lava-like shit to match my
shirt. At least during the autopsy they'll know what killed me. I've decided
to stop breathing, it's too painful. I'm not getting any oxygen anyway. If I
need air, I'll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach.
Curry # 8: Hansraj's Mount Saint Curry
JUDGE ONE: A perfect ending, this is a nice blend curry, safe for all, not
too bold but spicy enough to declare its existence.
JUDGE TWO: This final entry is a good, balanced curry, neither mild nor hot.
Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge Number 3 passed out, fell
over and pulled the curry pot down on top of himself. Not sure if he's going
to make it. Poor Yank, wonder how he'd have reacted to a really hot curry?
FRANK:--------------(editor's note: Judge #3 was unable to report)
