Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

You: I love Campbell's chicken soup

Me, parachuting into your mentions: make your own soup, it's not hard

You: I don't want to

Me: you just need chicken wings, carrots, celery, onions, garlic— put it all in your slow cooker

You: I don't have one

Me: you need one! A good one is only about $100

You: I just want Campbell's

Me: uh, ok, but you really don't know what goes into it, it's not safe. Don't complain when you get sick

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

You: I'm just going to buy the soup I like

A second rando in your mentions: @.Louisa chicken wings? Do you get good results? I've always preferred to use a whole chicken carcass @.you

Me: @.rando2 yeah I like the wings better for a cleaner flavor and it makes economic sense a lot of the time @.you

Rando2: @.Louisa what if we could bulk-buy wings and share them, reducing costs further @.you

You: untag me please

@Louisa then they fight for 18 hours about chicken noodle vs chicken and dumplings, still tagging you in every single one

this probably makes no sense at all, Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Louisa sous vide is the arch linux of the food world

@balrogboogie @Louisa It's optimised for reproducibility ... maybe it's Guix

@Louisa this is exactly how nutrition wonks sound homg

@glitterwitch it's hard not to fall into the trap of "everyone should have the time and energy for the thing I've chosen to devote my time and energy to" but you gotta fight it

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Louisa I used to be that freaking guy, I was so snobby about ~whole foods~ thankfully I got my head out of my ass

@Louisa

I know this is a joke, but my mom did this techbro shit to me about soup last week! Some of her responses were verbatim what you have in your post.

@zzz it's an easy thing to fall into!

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Louisa this is so completely accurate i'm suspicious

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@finn I know the food part, and what it's like to *hear* the tech part, so I'm like 75% an expert

re: Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Louisa god if only techbros were like home cooking people. Just excited about it and sharing easy ways to do it instead of shit-talking store brands

re: Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Tel oh man that's a good point

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Louisa I do talk about food like that, sometimes

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@anarchiv me too! But I do *try* to find a willing audience

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Louisa aye that's the difference

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Louisa unironically I live with two chefs and we had this exact conversation

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Louisa they have this weird abhorrence of canned foods

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Aleums there's a lot of parallels in these interests! I try to keep food opinions to myself unless asked, but I definitely slip up

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Aleums @Louisa Im gonna go out on a limb and say it's likely bc lots of canned stuff is either oversalted or over preservatived, so the flavors are off...unless all you're looking for is "salty"

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@ItsJenNotGabby @Louisa thing is I've tried their soup and it's always way too salty, so it's mysterious to me

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Aleums @Louisa lmaoooo that is the only difference i notice in my soups vs canned soups, but idk what theyre doing so 🤷‍♀️

maybe theyre just the culinary equivalent of "oh i dont even HAVE a tv" people lmao

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@ItsJenNotGabby @Louisa I think you're spot on with that analysis jen, we don't have a microwave and they pride themselves on it lmao

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Aleums @ItsJenNotGabby @Louisa@mastodon.xyz see I’m the opposite of a food purist as I live solely on hot chocolate, coke, and m&ms, but I hate microwaves just because they make everything taste like death

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Aleums @ItsJenNotGabby @Louisa that's fucking insane, it's a heat source. Yeah, you can ruin things with a microwave and pre-packaged food meant for it is not the height of cuisine but it's like getting snobby about an oven vs a range top. It's for different things!

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Aleums @ItsJenNotGabby @Louisa sounds like they... 😎 spoiled the broth.

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Aleums @Louisa You just need a salt vacuum

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@jasonscheirer @Aleums ha, they're called potatoes 😌

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Louisa @Aleums there are no problems anymore

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Louisa

some fuck: i use the large hadron collider to create my own chicken, fucking plebs

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@Louisa don't forget to invest in my decentralized soup, it will solve all the world's problems

Talking about food the way techbros talk about tech 

@DarkWitchClaire @Louisa been waiting to go off about SoupBase, the SoupChain, and my cloudy-with-a-chance-of-meatballs based microsoup architecture
