All good, I've been there too :)

My guy they (formerly I) know. After you're hooked it feels out of your control. It becomes a mechanism your brain uses to alleviate stress or to relax. For me, for a long time, it helped me socialize, as I was alone in a new city, working a serving job. After it became a part of who I was, stopping wasn't just ceasing buying and smoking cigarettes, it was now changing my identity and my personality.

I've quit now but I'm here to tell you its big ask of someone, and you shouldn't judge folks who try and fail, but treat it as a vallient effort, and encourage them to try again.

I hear you though, having been a non smoker for a few years now I can smell it and I know what you mean. Just try to remember those are real people behind the addiction, and that for those of us old farts, some of us thought it made us look cool, and were led into it, despite the warnings.

Hey I've been there, and after reflecting on it, the truth is, (at least from my perspective), you don't really, truely want it yet. Don't take that as judgement, I'm certainly not in a place to judge, but I've kicked severeral multi-year addictions, and weed was one I had the pleasure of just "deciding to quit". For me quitting weed came with breaking a friendship of the longtime smoking buddy I had, though after getting off of it and reflecting, I realize he was just using me as a convenient spot to store his weed. YMMV, but I think you got this, and hopefully my experience lends some light onto your difficulties with quitting.

Oh I thought that was an April fools joke! I'm pretty sure I saw something about it on April 1st on the homepage. Had no idea it was a real thing.

What the heck is archinstall?

Me too, though, while I've seen him be critical of tactics, admittedly I've never seen JCS do an entire episode about crimes committed by the police themselves.

This looks great. Where'd you find it?

Hey, I'm not disagreeing with you here, but keep in mind none of those things are necessary for survival, and most such products can last decades if properly maintained.

I think you're arguing against the most extreme interpretation of what this person said.

To give you an example, I'll show you what it looks like if I were to interpret your comment in the same way:

In some capacity, you have to admit, self sufficiency is possible. Forged metal, magnets, and batteries aren't necessary to sanitize water, grow, forage or hunt food, or to build shelter.

I think that's how they said "gold digger" ~2700 years ago

That would be illegal. This is in a gray area

It's probably to avoid paying tolls, assuming the auto tag readers can't figure out the font

Get a wok. You can craft restaurant quality dishes in minutes. This little number was made from mostly leftovers, fed 3 people, and was downright delicious.

I know, I know, I'm late to the sourdough game, but I've been thoroughly enjoying easy bread with commercial yeast, so I wanted to give sourdough a shot.

Followed the recipe from Joshua Wiessman's "Unapologetic Cookbook" (side note: great cookbook), twice, but I couldn't get the dough to turn out right. It always seemed overly hydrated and liquid.

I've been reading through this community, watching videos, and cooking easy bread long enough though that I finally threw up my hands and decided to have a go at it myself.

I started with about 10g of starter, added about 450g of bread flour, 1/4 cup of sugar (to increase rise), and a spoonful of salt. Then let that mix in the stand mixer till pretty homogeneous. Next I added 1.5 cups of 100°F water, and mixed in.

At this point it was still very liquidy, so I mixed in quite a bit more bread flour until it "looked right" with an appropriate amount of shaggyness.

I then let that rest for a while, and came back with the dough hook about every 30 minutes. At one point it still looked a bit too wet, so I added even more bread flour. I just worked this in with the hook.

After all my working I was worried about overdoing it, so I switched to stretch and folds, of which I did about 3 over the next several hours.

Finally I left it alone for about an hour, and when I returned, it was nice and risen.

I turned it out into my working space, added flour, cut and shaped, and placed into the floured bannetons. I let them rest in the bannetons for about an hour before I refrigerated them overnight.

I let them rest while the oven was heating this morning, and followed my normal baking routine, but I adjusted the temp up by about 50°, based on the Weissman recipe, which I feel was a mistake, so next time I'll just stick to 450°F.

The result was good. Though I can still taste sugar, so I'm going to cut it way down in the next batch. I'm also thinking I may not split into two loafs, and to bake at a lower temp next time.

All in all, I'd say this is my first successful attempt, and I'm excited for the next iteration. Any tips or sage wisdom from fellow bread people would be greatly appreciated!
