  • Is it possible to turn oven off before cooking is complete?

    Now I know in baking sugar-based dish, a level of precise is necessary, such cakes, cookies, etc. and it is not advisable to turn off the oven early.

    But cooking a meat dish, casserole, bread, or anything else, is it ok to turn off the oven before the timer has run out? The reason I think this is because you pre-heat oven, then it shuts off for several minutes, and clicks on for a bit, shuts off. What I am doing is allowing the temp to drop without the last yo-yo 'up' at the end of cooking? Any foreseeable reason why this does not work?

  • Is this outlandish to imagine, men being raped because some women lie about rape?

    This is the reason I imagine this.

    "Rape" is defined as when a man gains carnal knowledge of a woman without her consent.

    Well, if a woman, of her own free will, chooses to put on make-up, get dressed, and go out on the town, later choosing to get drunk, go home with a strange man, and consensually have sex with him, she can't later decide this was a rape.

    Unfortunately, college students are bombarded with messages that if there is any question as to whether or not you were raped, you were raped; in fact, they go on to encouraging young women to file police charges and falsely accuse males, who had sex with them on a drunken night, of rape; because the consensual sex was fueled by alcohol [though leave out the free will of the involved woman] this is definitely the 'male taking advantage of the situation and her vulnerable intoxicated state.'

    According to former Colorado state prosecutor, Craig Silverman, up to 45% of rape accusations could be fallacious. He went on to say that he was amazed by the amount of false rape accusations that are made by women. [for further information, a list of false rape statistics available here http://en.wikipedia/ [DOT] org/wiki/False_accusation_of_rape ]

    If I accuse my neighbor of theft, with no proof and no evidence, it is laughed out of the police station...

    On the other hand, if a woman walks into the police station and says I beat/raped her, I get to spend time in jail....

    Continuing this chain,

    In a survey of 1,788 male inmates in Midwestern prisons by Prison Journal, about 21% claimed they had been coerced or pressured into sexual activity during their incarceration, and 7% claimed that they had been raped in their current facility. [for further information, many different United States prison rape statistics visit http://en.wikipedia/ [DOT] org/wiki/Prison_rape_in_the_United_States ]

    So in some cases, it wouldn't be unreasonable to assume, a woman, falsely playing the role of victim of rape, CREATES a REAL VICTIM of rape, by sending an innocent man to jail/prison???

    Thank you for your consideration and any additional resources or links you can direct me to are most helpful and much appreciated. I know I could have better built this series but I'm counting on you, Answers Community, to build up, or tear down, my position. Thank you all for answering this question after giving it serious thought, rather than your knee-jerk reaction.
