Chocolate Cake & Truck Repair GF Radio

The 5 minute chocolate mug cake recipe video how to starts off the show, as Eric and Mike discuss making the 5 min microwave cake. Eric fixed the posted recipe, hoping no one actually put 2 tablespoons of salt in the cake. Katja from Holland tells us that the Dutch use butter, not oil in their baking, and has some suggestions for making  grown-up version of the cake with espresso powder, orange liqueur, or rum. yum…

but its the ubiquitous fork in the chocolate cake recipe video that caught one viewer’s eye, and we learn Eric may have valuable silverware in the drawer. That’s not just a for, it’s a “Kirk Repousse Sterling Silver fork” and it may be worth some cash. wow.

we talk about the overnight cole slaw recipe, here is the link to the recipe

    Hi Eric and Mike,

    I just listened to this show and I wanted to comment on the topic of hotels and other businesses inserting ads into webpages you visit through their wi-fi service. Similar to Mike’s comments, I’m not opposed to being subjected to ads to help cover the cost of a free service. The problem I have with this is that the service provider (the hotel in this case) is inspecting and manipulating the data from the internet before it reaches your computer. While simply inserting an ad into a webpage may seem benign, it is not far from other types of manipulation that get into ethically hazy territory. It’s not hard to imagine going from inserting ads to, say, blocking ads (for example, ads from the hotel’s competitor), or even to restricting access to certain webpages (again, the competitor’s webpage, or maybe even a webpage that expresses political views that the hotel CEO disagrees with). Or maybe the hotel would make certain webpages free, but charge for access to others. This type of deep packet inspection and manipulation sets a dangerous precedent for major service providers to exploit and do this same thing at a much larger scale. Maybe I sound a bit like a conspiracy theorist, but I believe that the openness and equality of the Internet need protecting.

    Thanks for starting an interesting discussion, and keep up the good work!
