  • Noob cooking question?

    I always use boneless chicken when cooking with chicken. But I grabbed the wrong bag this time and got chicken thighs. Twice now I've lost patience trying to cook these (stove top) cut them up and finished cooking them that way. Is there a way to quickly cook boned chicken or should I just cut it up after dethaw.

    A little while back I went to a doctor because I developed some tendinitis in my elbow. We went a head and checked out all of my popping, aches and pains. Xrays and other fun tests. He came back and advised me to stop martial arts, weekend sports and other extracurricular activities if I wanted to have an OK working body at 50-year-old. (I just turned 30.) My dad is mid-fifties can still sprint like a normal mid-twenty-something guy, thow an 85 mile an hour fast ball, hit home runs into the wind and more! After having his Achilles tendon rupture and surgery. Now, I know I am not my dad and he is above the whole family in athletics. But in my family Fifty is not a slowing down point... by any mean. I'm going to be the exception I suppose lol. I did have a second opinion and the other doc was only slightly more optimistic. I've lived a rough, rough life. All in all, I can't stop training or doing what I do. I'm going to be using a walker saying it was a hell of a ride getting here. But I am curious as to what other here on Y!A that I have gotten to know would do in my shoes. Thank you. P.S. Yes I am a lil depressed about this. Prolly why I am asking this at 2 am lol

  • 97 Nissan maxima breaks?

    The front driver side break will not engage. The pump is working and will bleed the line at the caliper but the cylinder will not push the pads. How do I fix this. **disclaimer** It is a friends car and while I've done hundreds of break changes I haven't seen this.

Are the higher displacement engines really easy to mod or are they that flipping fast in spite of the lower hp? Or are under ten seconds times a little exaggerated?

    Off and on people here at Y!A have talked about making a martial arts forum. The reasons mainly for better category choices and to get away from the trolls. I decided to try and make one and it was a fun little challenge :D I put in a general martial arts forum, an MMA section (to discuss fighters, events, and orgs), an off topic section, a welcome forum (if people would like to introduce themselves) and have thought about putting in a troll hunting section for people from here that would like to help clean this place up. Then I assigned certain groups to moderate the two main forums. (If the members show certain interests I can add more forums or subforums as requested) *Please note I am not advertising this forum* Here are my questions 1. Is this something that you guys would be interested in? 2. Would the interest be enough to make make this created forum an active one? I would not mind keeping this running, but is it going to be worth it? I feel I am at the point of no return, meaning I could delete it now with no problem. However, I do not want to move much further forward without knowing that there will be some sort of continual interest. All feedback is welcome Thank you

The Replied that it would take twelve years. So the kid asked again "If I trained five days a week and 6 hours a day how long will it take?" The master replied this time that it would take fifteen years. The kid frustrated with this answer asked "If I train seven days a week how long would it take to become a great master" The master this time replied that it would take twenty years. Angered the child asked how it was that even though he trained even more that it would take longer to become a great master The master replied, "If you keep your eyes only on the goal you will lose sight of the path" What are your thoughts on this story?
