I finally just set the fucking thing down, went over and got a pen and paper and just worked it out the old fashioned way.
Because you know what, my brain and my hand will never be obsolete.
I don’t have to upgrade them.
Don’t have to get the new one…
You think in the future, when our body gets too old, stops working right, we can just get new shit?
You ever think about that?
Like how the starter on your car goes after a while and you gotta get a new starter.
Because a car will last forever if you just keep replacing the parts.
Why not have a system like that for the body?
Like what if in the future you can pick out different heads, what you wanna look like.
Just keep unscrewing and rescrewing a new fucking head.
Like a goddamn lightbulb.
Just keep trying out new heads till you find the one you want to put your brain in.
It’d be like getting a new car every couple years.
Who doesn’t want that??
Would you do it?
Or would you just ride out the one you have?
Is this getting too weird?
I mean they already grow ears in petri dishes.
They’ve been doing that for years.
Why wouldn’t they have figured out how to grow a head?
I think if they ever seriously figured out how to do that, we wouldn’t stand a fucking chance.
When you’re building heads…
When you’re at that level, you don’t have any morals left, it’s only about money.
And the temptation to sell that ‘technology’ to the masses would be too great.
But you know we wouldn’t get as good of fucking heads as they get.
They’d keep the topshelf shit to themselves.
And we would just get like, the Bud Light of heads.
Miller Lite hands.
And that would like be the goal of the future.
To make enough money that when you get your replacement head you can actually get a good one.
Like a decent looking one, you know?
Your parents give you a little money..
“Now don’t go out there and blow it all on a head! Save some for feet and hands in the future!”
But mom, if I get a better head, I can get a better girl!
“Ah you don’t need to do that, you just save up money and you buy the girl you’re with a better head!”
Can you see that in the future?
This is just an example of the random shit I think about when I’m alone people.
Chinese Steamed Fish
What I Used
1 or 2 Whole Fish (gutted and scaled). 7-8 Green Onions. 1 Knob of Ginger. 1 Handful Cilantro. 2 Serrano Peppers. ½ cup Rice Wine Vinegar. 1 cup Soy Sauce. 1 tbsp Sugar. ½ cup Vegetable Oil. Salt. Pepper.
What I Did
Pre-heat your oven to 400F.
Fill a large baking tray with a couple inches of water and place a baking rack over it so it’s elevated above the water.
Using a pastry brush, brush the rice wine vinegar over the fish and into each slit.
Be sure to brush the inside too.
Then sprinkle an even mixture of salt and pepper over and inside the fish.
I skipped this part because the soy sauce dressing later applied seasoned it enough for me.
Lay the leafy part of the green onion on the rack and place the fish on top of it.
Fit a few strips of ginger inside a couple slits on the fish and a few more on the inside of the fish.
Cover the fish lightly with tinfoil and place in the oven.
Roast for about 15 mins or until the fish easily separates from the bone when tested with a fork.
When done, place the fish in a large plate or serving tray, discarding the leafy green pieces.
Roughly chop the cilantro and thinly slice the serrano peppers.
Place the fresh cilantro, remaining ginger strips, serrano peppers and the white stalk of the green onion on top of the fish.
Lastly, heat the vegetable oil in a small saucepan.
Right before it begins to smoke, remove from the flame and pour the hot oil over the fish.
You’ll hear a lovely crackling noise from the hot oil meeting the garnish.
Don’ be alarmed, it’s a wonderful thing.
