    @Nabuquduriuzhur
    I was appalled by your blatant display of ignorance yesterday when you claimed that the US has sent forces to Central America only 2 times (and one of them, Grenada, isn’t even in Central America by your own definition).
     
    The actual number is in fact more than 50. You can find the list of all acknowledged military interventions of the US abroad up to 2001 in the Report for Congress by the Congressional Research Service called “Instances of Use of United States Armed Forces Abroad, 1798-2001”.
     
    To help you identify the instances corresponding to Central America you can use these webpages which specify the most noteworthy ones for all Latin America: this page mentions around 30 instances, and this one close to 50 (of course in both cases those are quick counts that do NOT include South America, the Caribbean, or Mexico).
     
    The number is obviously much smaller than 700, but still it is completely inadmissible that you try to “correct” a misconception by stating something that is no more than a obvious and blatant lie. That makes you at least as bad if not worse than the original “source”.
     
    Thanks to all those who called out Nabuquduriuzhur with specific famous examples that he blatantly decided to “forget”.

    If I were Jason Fox, I’d say Travel Channel’s “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern.”

    Oh he’s the past master at offering made up statistics and blatantly making up his own facts. He once attributed 90% of Allied casualties on the WWII Western front to a German weapon that didn’t even exist.

    re: curmudgeon
    .
    You mean the 88mm mortar that was so common on the battlefield didn’texist? I suggest you look it up. It accounted for most non-disease casualties on the western front.

    re:strod
    .
    You mean that we did hundreds of invasions? Gee, why are they not in the older, non-revisionist history books that didn’t pull punches?
    .
    I might give you our involvement in Panama, but that still is only three invasions.
    .

    Seriously guys, quit being dishonest.
    .
    Next you will be telling me that the Moon landings didn’t occur.
    .
    Merely because you don’t like something, doesn’t mean it’s not true.

    Was that the infamous 88 mm anti-aircraft gun or a mortar?
    I don’t know about 90% casualties … but, yeah … ask any WWII veteran about the 88.
    BIll Mauldin even did a cartoon about a GI standing outside Army Intelligence, glaring at a German soldier. The Intelligence officer remarks, ’I’ll call you when I find out who invented the 88.’

    Look up granatenwerfer 34 Several thousand made from 1935-1945. Variously called 8cm, 81mm, and 88mm.

    Well… This is something I thought I never see. Paige is cooking or least she’s trying to succeed where her mother failed.


    Paige’s scrabbled-eggs might actually taste good too.

    All scrambled eggs are fried, but not all fried eggs are scrambled.

    Still better then her mother’s.
    At least she’s using real eggs and not a tofu substitute.

    What does military invasion have to do with cooking eggs?

    True. But her mother wouldn’t even bother with the tofu substitute, she’d just make wheatmeal.

    I don’t know. Some people love to start flame wars whenever and wherever.

    Anyway, BACK ONTO TOPIC… I know the comic strip isn’t 2013, but Food Network does have Mystery Diners, which is probably more scripted sitcom than reality.

    All the eggs she makes are scrambled.
