All joking aside, no.
I rub them, then rest them in the fridge all day.
When they come out of the boil they taste like you'd expect them to from the rub, and fork-cut tender.


I don't use a fork with ribs.


Finger food.

Yes, it's very sad, isn't it?

Our rules are pretty much the same, but individuals will be vandals/thieves, unfortunately.

Less hard to understand is when the damage occurs in plain view.

In Melbourne we have megalodon teeth amongst the extensive fossils in a 2km stretch of our bay, but a boat club wants to construct a marina on the site!
and there are a few who don't know

but ain't it sad when they do know better and they still say

go ahead honey pick that flower

or go ahead son, grab that fossil

etc, etc, etc, and so forth and so on

Yes, and even worse, I've spoken with someone from our Botanical Gardens who pointed out that the value of some of the specimens stolen from them would only be known to postgraduates in the subject.

I found that to be a bit upsetting. These are people who aren't ignorant, so it rocked my faith a bit.

I was at Yellowstone NP last year walking around on a short guided tour by the NPS

we walked a short distance from the road up a small hill and lo and behold all around us, ranging from good size boulders to small rocks and pebbles was snowflake obsidian

snowflake obsidian - Bing images

very pretty

often found for sale in shops after a little polish and work

the guide specifically reminded us to look, take photos even touch if we wanted but to put it back exactly where we found it and not in our pockets

of course everyone complied

how many might not on their own when not escorted ???

the meat falling off the rib is an essential test they should pass

IMHO, YMMV

Can I just rub until I need glasses?

Near fall off but still tender bite off the bone is perfection IMHO.

And that is why, close by here, in the Burgess Shale you cannot go without a guide.

But who guided the guide on his first foray into the wilderness?

Yeah, that guy could have done very well ... finders, keepers!

That's a slogan every tomb raider has used, I'm sure.

Sounds like you over-do the massage. Or are you giving time for a marinating effect to happen?

I remember as a Scout in Northeast Minnesota canoeing in an area where it looked like no one else had ever been there,

we rounded the bend and on the rocky bluff

" jimmy + sally " in bright spray paint

met my eyes

very disappointing

Yes, my wife and I were last in the States sixteen years ago (going again in September) and a ranger told a group of us tourists that sequoias have a lot of fire resistance, so the one we were looking at had survived teenagers attempting to ignite it.

The kids didn't know that ... they were trying to destroy something that might have endured a thousand years.

it isn't only immature kids

don't forget the immature adults

who will be destructive

either unintentionally or intentionally

hope you enjoy the upcoming trip

in 2011, my wife and I endured long flights from Kansas to Sydney, enjoyed a cruise with Holland America - visited Melbourne and Hobart and then the western side of NZ, around the SI and up to the capital and a worse flight home: interior seats completely full plane from there to San Fran and then back to Kansas

It is a foolish person who thinks they can go up against Mother Nature and win.
