Microtome Beef

Slices of steak so thin they can hardly keep together.

I'm working in a lab now and we're using a cryostat, which is a microtome in a freezer pretty much. It cuts slices of the specimen nanometers at a time. I can't imagine what beef would taste like if steaks were this thin. (dribbling saliva and bubbles as noah goes comatose from an unattended chloraform spill.)

What the hell's a microtome? http://www.lib.uiow...inytomes/board1.gif

Brownie Point to [thumbwax] for getting the frozen right [gnomethang, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 06 2004]

       Mongolian Grill joints slice meats nearly paper thin while frozen. A host of oils and sauces to choose from predicates the need for moist beef, but your concoction would have to be in a bowl on ice, handled carefully and added at the last moment to the veggies of your choosing.

       I like it. Please give it a try and report back.

       thanks [thumbwax] for the tip. I wonder though, why do most people put brackets around others' names when annotating? Anyway, just wanted to know so i didn't violate etiquette in the future. I'll have to clean this cryostat really well before I try cutting food with it. When I get it right I'll annotate the RECIPE, considering most people's devil's-advocate-like responses to such horrible posts! see my icecream cup cakes. I'm sure there have been many other examples better than this.

       [jutta] wrote it in as a feature to make user names stand out from text when placing links, I believe. It just sort of spread.

       <still giddy from the chloroform> I thought you were describing the pepperoni on the pizza I got last night. I held one of those slices up to eye level and I could see right through it. They could probably make pizzas all night with one inch of sausage.

       I want the kind of chloraform that makes you giddy, where'd you get that &pluterday&? Every time i think of microtome i want to say microtomi, like nakatomi plaza in #Die Hard#(# is used for movies for all those who lag behind in the specialization of proper nouns.) Anyhow, #Die Hard#, yeah, if only they could shave time like i'm shaving mouse femur.

       Mmmmm, mouse femur, with a nice Chianti.

       + mmmm....Extreme Carpaccio
Simply add microtome beef to link.

       carpaccio, now I remember ordering that without realizing they were talking about raw meat. I saw the order being placed in front of me, and as a 10 year-old who didn't have a taste for tar-tar, I had to take a bite and send it back for the sea-urchin tongue instead.
