I'm sure you guys probably read this before I did, but it's awesome enough to share it in case someone missed it. [livejournal.com profile] amethyst_hunter, you will love this, if you haven't seen it. You want to see a pro-gay-rights guy do some really elegant fucking swearing, right? Who doesn't?

“I can assure you that gay people getting married will have zero effect on your life. They won't come into your house and steal your children.They won’t magically turn you into a lustful cockmonster”: Chris Kluwe Explains Gay Marriage To The Politician Who Is Offended By An NFL Player Supporting It.


You are now a Minnesota Vikings fan.

Or a fan of Chris Kluwe, at the very least. :D

Have any of you made caramel/caramels before? I tried last night but it didn't turn out. I know candy is difficult, but I followed the recipe closely. The only thing that was off was the flavor. It tasted like nothing but corn syrup. The recipe called for a little, but not a whole lot. But to me it's an overpowering flavor and I find it really super gross. Should I try *gulp* an old-fashioned recipe without corn syrup? Have you ever made caramel and tasted the corn syrup in it before? I used light corn syrup; does that make a difference?

I did read on one site that "If making a caramel, and a recipe calls for corn syrup, you can substitute a dash of lemon juice or cream of tartar, which performs nearly the same function." But it was mostly talking about the way the corn syrup works and that people don't like it because of nutritional reasons, not the taste. If I can taste it, I'm assuming I did something wrong.

Maybe I'm just weird because I really don't like the taste of corn syrup and I can really notice it. It tastes foul and strange to me, not the way any candy should taste. Am I crazy?
