Would you guys say tapioca is a type of pudding or an entirely realm of dessert due to its emulsified goodness?

Or you can just come on, and talk betting theory, bankroll optimization, share the occasional +EV nugget and balance that with an array of mockery and snide commentary. Works for some other people too.

Optimal IMO.

ldo.

Another pudding question. My local Thai place has a fantastic coconut custardish desert. It has a thai name. Can i call that pudding, if it shares the consistency?

If so, that's clearly my favorite pudding.

Also, what about creme brule?

Is there a formal definition for what truly makes a pudding?

Creme brulee is a custard.

Oh man I love me some vanilla creme brulee with some raspberries and whip cream. Doesn't get much better than that.

I really don't like pudding that much.
The texture just feels too icky for me.

It's kind of like mashed potatoes. I can't eat mashed potatoes straight up because the texture makes me want to gag. But with turkey or chicken or steak or whatever and then scooping some potatoes along with works for me.


I would also like some info or speculation as to the origin of the phrase 'proof is in the puddling'.
huh? What pudding? Seems kind of a strange thing to say. Especially considering that some of your audience might not even like pudding.

You know, I was wondering the same thing.

Ah, here we go: Link

Someone earlier included the whole saying - props to whoever that was.

I had never heard "proof of the pudding is in the eating" before.
I believe I have heard "proof is in the pudding" since I was a kid. If I heard it when I was 10 years old or so that would have been about 1980.

Yeah, it was an increasingly fast-paced society then too compared with 1960 or something. But it's not like this shortened version came about due to the internet-age or something.

If you're reliably making 3:1 every 60-90 days, you'd be a multi-millionaire from sports betting alone.

my suspicion is, you are just a troll. that's a strong suspicion.

What is the definition of a troll and what does it take to be banned from 2+2?

Is a troll someone who is purposely pretending to be retarded? or is a troll someone who genuinely is?

If it is the latter, I don't understand why people make fun of trolls so often...at one point in my life I was also a troll(though somehow magically I cannot remember such a time, nor does my memory beleive that time ever existed).

Also to those making bets with the suspected "troll", how often have you ever had real action from a thread like this? He comes here looking for fame and possibly affirmation of his beliefs and you directly contradict him and want to take the other end of him in a prop bet...Now how could you expect him to bet with you? The entire reason why you suspect he would want to take the bet with you is because if he thinks he is 62%, then he would realize he has an edge that is exploitable via the bet with you. But no one who legitimately makes posts like this would understand the second half and no one who is faking the post would be stupid enough to put money on it. This leads me to believe offering to bet against someone is just another "my penis is larger than yours because I say so" argument. Which is essentially also a troll job.
