    Default IS IT ILLEGAL TO: ..... ???

    There will be NO lawyering on this thread.

    We need a thread (or not) where people can ask whether something is SO good, or SO cool, that it might well be illegal.

    For Example: Is it illegal to cook eggs in the bacon grease these days? Or does one have to have a doctor's note?


    No one is allowed to answer with: "But it is a bad idea."

    By Definition All of the below will be BAD IDEAS. We are simply asking whether the Foo's consensus is "Legal" or "Illegal"

    Is it illegal to take your huge dog on "rides" in your sedan, so he can put his head out the window and ruin the front seats?

    Married men: Is it illegal to spend extra time (not flirting) extra time speaking to a woman at work or at a social event JUST BC SHE'S ATTRACTIVE, more time than we would with another woman? We are very much aware that anything more is an aggravated felony.

    (Jazzgirl: As our sister, you are allowed to answer the above question but you must do so with a dispassionate application of Foo law.)

    Can someone explain how one cooks eggs in bacon grease? I have not done this, but it sounds fantastic. How much grease does one need? Is there a different procedure? For scrambled eggs specifically, does the addition of bacon grease lend itself to other additions, e.g. onions?

    Cook the bacon. Then cook the eggs in the same pan.

    I don't use bacon grease, but you can put anything you want in scrambled eggs. I've done various combinations using stuff like onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, cubed ham, summer sausage.

    Way back in the day, when we did our extension on house which included a new kitchen, we got a viking wide enough for 8 burners but got one section done as a griddle. When we make a nice pancake breakfast... we start with bacon on the griddle and then do the pancakes right on top after the bacon is done. Don't care if it is bad for you... tastes too damn good to care.

    You need to cook breakfast potatoes in bacon grease too. Game. Changer. I keep the grease from bacon in the fridge and always cook eggs in it. I only use a small amount (but use a non stick skillet so it may need more in Stainless?), Basically I melt about the size of a quarter to a half dollar for an egg. We do occasionally add red onions or peppers into scrambled eggs. There's a hot sauce we love called Cajun Tears, it's so good on eggs. I like to add potatoes in with scrambled eggs or omlets, I learned to make "Tortillas espanola" in high school Spanish class and it's something I've done every chance I get (including using leftover french fries).

    So the answer is "Yes" or we're all going to Foo Jail.


    My grandmother always did it that way but since the whole health conscious, cholesterol thing, I got used to just a little spray oil. Until my daughter kept asking for them that way and I figure she's a kid, let her have it.

    I keep my bacon grease. Have a rubber container with a built in strainer on top that I pour it into each time I cook bacon. Keep it in the fridge. It is great for sautéing most anything.

    Bacon fat is a great starter for taco meat.

    That is all.

    I have pointed out particularly attractive women to my wife at parties and events. She normally agrees. Then one time I said “I think she’s lost, can we bring her home?” That actually was a bad idea.

    Hash browns that aren't cooked with some amount of bacon grease ought to be illegal.

    I really can't answer the attractive woman question... As a woman, I want to say "well, I at least hope she has a good personality that makes you want to continue the chat"...but as a wife, I'm thinking "I hope she's dull AF and has no sense of humor" ... because that presents zero threat.

    No way.

    When I was a kid having bacon and eggs for dinner was a treat, kind of like when dad showed up with one of those old-school buckets of KFC.

    Of course, we had cold cereal for breakfast, so bacon/eggs would obviously be a treat.

    I make bacon/eggs/fruit for my daughter every day. But I only have one so it's easier.

    If licking the bowl after having ice cream is wrong, I don't want to be right. Not illegal as far as I know.

    It is not illegal to have pizza any time of day, for any meal or a snack.

    That is very cool and funny.

    My daughter listened to a song I was listening to, something fast, hard, skater music, cannot remember what it was, she throws the headphones back, "Not bad, boomer."

    I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

    JzG: Great answer on the attractive thing. Something to remember.

    I was listening to some 90s alt rock, when my youngest son generalized it as old music from the “19-somethings.” He lumped an entire century of pop culture into a single category of stale, old people music. I might as well have been listening to Lawrence Welk.

    Is it illegal to watch South Park with your young teen?

    Before anyone say anything, I do flip the channel instantly if it looks to be getting gross, but I do that when I watch, too.

    I feel like "She's not hearing a thing she hasn't heard at school" and I figure that South Park teaches enough good lessons (and they do) that it's at least a wash.

    Man, that is harsh, considering the fact that I think the 90s put out the best decade of music in my time on earth.

    My daughter has taken to "grunge" and loves the Nirvana t-shirt and flannel shirt over it. I approve.

    Ha ha, young people. For any of them that casually dismiss anything from a 40 or 50 year period as "old people music" I think there are some that have an appreciation for and embrace music from previous eras. There's a whole phenomenon of being nostalgic for a time before you were born.

    I don't have kids, but I think you can trust your judgement. South Park is really hit and miss, but when they are on it's absolutely hilarious, and also incredibly astute and timely social and political criticism.
