How To: By You

How To: By You is a "sociological project is about the study of knowledge among human society and how it can differ and change." Topics range from how to cook the perfect grilled cheese sandwich to catching fish, with seemingly no limit to the possibilities. Got a question for the unwashed masses? Or maybe you have the ultimate martini recipe. Show off your intuition.

A good idea in theory, but some topics quickly lend themselves to mere goofy joking.

The grilled cheese sandwich thing is so wrong. The first person starts out frying, not grilling, then it all goes to hell in a handbasket. I'd post my own method but I know that it would be a pointless whisper amongst the madness. Great site though, thanks for the post mb01!

What is it with people who think you can grill something in a frying pan? Besides, they all forgot the most important part - you have to make sure the cheese goes all the way to the edge of the bread so there are no burnt bits at the edges. Only one person remembered the 2nd most important ingredient, being bacon bits and nobody added the most important one - tomato sauce in a spiral pattern on top of the cheese. Experiment failed.

Have you tried Welsh Rarebit? Its worth the extra effort and you get to drink beer at the same time.

Open beer, drink some. Melt about 20g butter in a small saucepan. Add 1 cup of cheese, ½ teaspoon mustard powder, a dash of Worcestershire sauce and ¼ cup of beer. Stir until smooth.

Spread over thick slices of toast and grill till golden. Drink rest of beer.
