Halfbakery Hardcore

One week of 12 hours of ideas and annos. No excuses.
  [vote for,

This is one week out of the year where every active account chips in to book out a set of suites in the Waldorf Astoria. Once everyone arrives and has a kickoff martini and round of red bull, they then spend 12 hours a day for that entire week posting ideas and annotating. At the end of this, at least one idea will be worth a billion dollars, and HB can afford to give out verified checks again.

       Bring Elon Musk for a laugh, let him take over, and before the session one idea will be worth 40 billion dollars and after the session the same idea will be worth nothing.

       I'll be there as long as the caterers don't run out of bacon.   

       Oooh, my first billion-dollar idea: HalfBaked Bacon! Strips of bacon that are first cooked in an oven to render out most of the moisture so when they are popped on a piping hot griddle they crisp up to that delightful crunchy doneness that should be the formally-legislated and universally-accepted standard for this heavenly treasure.   

       Which brings us to my second billion-dollar idea: HalfBaked Turkey Bacon Strips, which will instantly make a billion dollars because cultures where eating pork is forbidden will now be able to experience legendary "Bacon Rapture" as the rest of us have known for years.

       Now I'm not denying the contention that bacon proves the existence of god, I've just got some questions. Does non-crunchy bacon prove the existence of the devil?   

       Hate to sound like a know-it-all agnostic, and I have yet to hear a suitable scientific explanation for the existence of bacon WITHOUT a benevolent and loving god, but I think it's a suitable topic to ponder. (while eating bacon)
doctorremulac3, Nov 19 2022

       Easier to issue a linguistic and semantic declaration that "bacon" and "pork" are different categories of substance, therefore eating bacon is permitted even when eating pork is forbidden. A bit like how tomatoes have been declared as a vegetable and not a fruit, so that you get them in the vegetable aisle and may not add them to a fruit salad.
pocmloc, Nov 19 2022

       So... declare bacon a vegetable?   

       Mind blown!
doctorremulac3, Nov 19 2022

       We seem to have drifted away from the existential core of this discussion. My point was not to so much an attempt to rebrand bacon but to subliminally reiterate the dangerous deleterious effects wrought upon one's nervous system and mental health by ingesting alcohol and stimulants together.   

       It was either that or this is simply a thinly-disguised attempt to superimpose a mantle of ovine textile fibre across one's globular optical organs.
Canuck, Nov 19 2022

       But I’m allergic to ovine textile fibre.

       Noted. We are able to deploy a synthetic substitute upon request.
Canuck, Nov 19 2022

       I think the existence of non-crunchy bacon is a myth, a canard, a distraction, created as a defense mechanism by inferior culinary artists who, to paraphrase the legendary British humourist Peter Cook, //couldn't be bothered to swaddle!//   

       If it's not crunchy, can it rationally, ethically, and morally be considered real bacon? Or is it just a food product that is tantalizingly one step away from fulfilling its destiny?
Canuck, Nov 19 2022

       Real bacon is meaty chewy and has hairs in the skin
pocmloc, Nov 19 2022

       I know it's been talked about to death, but the theory that the singularity has already taken place and we're simply a simulation experiencing a glitch in the matrix sounded far fetched to me until somebody pointed out what led to this theoretical evaluation of the universe and reality:   

       "So how do you explain chewy bacon?"   

       I tried to wrap my mind around this for years, tried to brush it aside, but it keeps coming back, and haven't been able to explain this away any more than the countless scientists who've been trying for decades to come up with another explanation.   

       Some things just can't be un-seen. From Scientific American, 1978:   

       "The inherent fracturial quality of caro sus domesticus known to peasants as "bacon" has given rise to the question of why, on certain occasions, reports of a semisolid, even gelatinous version has been observed. Some who are not clever and never went to MIT or Stanford come up with wild conspiracy theories like "It's just undercooked." ignoring the science and the simple question: "If it's undercooked, how did it get that way?".
doctorremulac3, Nov 19 2022

       // … We are able to deploy a synthetic substitute (for ovine textile fibre) … //   

       That’s very considerate of you. Have anything made from woven bombyx mori secretions?
a1, Nov 19 2022

       Kosher bacon. Ah yes, that was invented...
pashute, Nov 19 2022

       This is bringing out the hardcore. I'm not even that hardcore. My bacon slices need to have a bit of chewiness in the middle. They can't disintegrate into dust in the mouth. That is a different type of cooking reserved for making bacon sprinkles, or including in cheeze-whiz, which I really should buy more of
mylodon, Nov 20 2022

       Bacon dust.   

       There has to be seasoning called bacon dust right?
doctorremulac3, Nov 20 2022

       Yes. Two links provided because I know this is really important.
a1, Nov 20 2022

       I’d bestowed a bun, Only if this can be all handwritten. In cursive also.
xandram, Nov 20 2022

       I prefer my bacon juicy and floppy. Am I a harpy?
RayfordSteele, Nov 21 2022

       You might be Canadian?
mylodon, Nov 21 2022

       For no apparent reason, I love this idea/non-idea.
blissmiss, Nov 23 2022

       Where was this idea like fifteen years ago?   

       ...and for the record, most Canadians I've met prefer crispy bacon.   

       mmmm... crispy maple bacon.   

       Mmmmm... halfbacon...
