Re: What do you like to cook in real life? I rarely cook anymore since I got married. My wife is just far superior in every way so me doing the cooking is almost a disappointment. But every now and then I like to smash out something special like back in the good old days (when she worked and I did the cooking).

Some of my specialties include a chicken pot pie, the 'gravy' filling is all natural juices from the vegies and chicken so is simply delectable. Puff pastry is the way to go. Another favourite is pannacotta for desert. I set some jelly (Jello to you americans) in the glasses overnight with them on a diagonal and then put the pannacotta in the next day to set. Leaves a beautiful looking but very simple dessert. But my best dishes of late have been using the French Black Perigord Truffle. Something as simple as a pasta carbonara with a little bit of fresh truffle grated in adds the most wonderful deep earthy flavour.

No pictures of my dishes but I do have some of the truffle I grow.

Re: Textiles and Scissors It's a known exploit ("known" in the sense that it's been mentioned at least once on the old board).

Another related exploit of the UrW logic is that anything produced from a single type of source materials can result in products of the higher quality(+1)  if you mix any amount of higher quality into it (if you also have a lower quality involved (-1) the amount of the higher quality input has to be at least marginally larger than the lower one). Thus, one harsh elk skin plus a decent willow grouse leather can yield decent quality cords, provided you select the willow grouse leather first and then "fill it out" with the harsh elk skin. You can even start with <0.1 lbs of the higher quality material. Using hides and leather is the most common case, but you can do the same in other cases as well.

If you've got multiple materials in the recipe the rules are different and not fully identified.
