Comment on Of Strangers, Relatives, and… Rice by SaapLai http://www.slugsite.com/archives/1521#comment-254565 Tue, 29 Jul 2014 00:55:22 +0000 http://www.slugsite.com/archives/1521#comment-254565 “Sticky rice” is most definitely not unique to Hmong cuisine. Glutinous rice can be found in traditional recipes of most Asian countries and ethnic groups. It’s often used in dessert recipes, not as a staple rice. The ethnic Lao people of Thailand and Laos are arguably the biggest consumers and cultivators of glutinous rice. It is truly a staple food for ethnic Lao people and consumed with nearly every traditional Lao meal. How does this relate to Hmong people and cuisine, you may wonder? The majority of Hmong in the U.S. emigrated from Laos where they adopted most of their “traditional Hmong” recipes and cuisine from their SE Asian neighbors: the Lao, Thai, and Vietnamese. If you research the history of Hmong “traditional” dishes, you will discover they are not actually Hmong in origin or even name! Of course the Hmong are happy to let you believe these tasty dishes were originally created by them. However, when Hmong share their traditional foods, they are actually promoting the food of other ethnic groups. So if a dish is meant to be accompanied by sticky rice, it’s most likely an ethnic Lao dish.

The black or purple rice thing with savory foods, however, seems to be a Hmong phenomena.

Dat shit’s f***ed up, yo.” Say it out loud and you’ll be laughing too!

Comment on Down the Rabbit Hole by Al http://www.slugsite.com/archives/988#comment-245020 Fri, 20 Jun 2014 20:14:05 +0000 http://www.slugsite.com/archives/988#comment-245020 Ok. A couple of things:

This looks like a NYC manhole by the way the chimney is set up.

That’s not straw on the manhole floor. It’s cut offs from the wires he’s splicing. And all manholes have floors. Usually mud covered concrete.

The headset is used to establish a “talk pair” or utilize a working telephone line to communicate with other splicers at other locations.

The “transformer”, I believe is just a form for enclosing a lead splice. Most cables of this era were jacketed with lead and the splice cases were created by forming hot lead over the cable pairs.

The “asbestos” is a group of cable pairs wrapped to maintain their grouping or keep them out of the splicer’s way. It’s likely just muslin.

The fabric is cotton sleaving. It was used as a insulator inspllicing as well as tying up groups within a splice. It’s
Also used as a all around rope, just because it’s handy and plentiful.

The manhole ring at the top of the chimney is very temporary. It’s used to protect the employee and the splice from falling debris and water. It only takes a minute to set up.

It’s a slim chance anyone on here has insight into latin gangs here, but we had our front gate tagged (not very large, seemed like a message to mark our house). Although we couldn’t decipher all of it, the word (spelled in this way, not the way the band spells it) METTALLICA with some other symbolS. To the left of this, directly next to our entrance gate there was an X with a five-pointed star above it. Unfortunately, I washed it off this morning before taking a photo. Any educated guesses on the meanings or gang name of this tag?

Thanks in advance.

We have cameras outside our garage and were lucky enough to have it caught on tape, but we still were wondering what the sign could mean… If it was a gang sign or not or if it was just some weird spray paint. It was in black spray paint by the way.
