Hey, I didn't say I would eat the vile stuff!

I can understand that people ate such things in order to survive during harder times. What puzzles me is the insane idea that they did this because of, rather than despite, the taste.

Well, whatever rocks your boat...

That should be: That would be lutefisk, properly spelt. (A comma after lutefisk and a period after spelt making it a complete, grammatically correct sentence. )

Spelt, also known as dinkel wheat, or hulled wheat, is an ancient species of wheat from the fifth millennium BC. Spelt was an important staple in parts of Europe from the Bronze Age to medieval times; it now survives as a relict crop in Central Europe and northern Spain and has found a new market as a health food.

Lutefisk (Norwegian) or Lutfisk (Swedish) or Ludfisk (Danish) (pronounced [lʉːtfesk] in Northern and Central Norway, [lʉːtəfɪsk] in Southern Norway, [lʉːtfɪsk] in Sweden, in Denmark [luš̞ˠfesk] and in Finland (Finnish: lipeäkala)) is a traditional dish of the Nordic countries. It is made from aged stockfish (air-dried whitefish) or dried/salted whitefish (klippfisk) and lye (lut). It is gelatinous in texture, and has an extremely strong, pungent odor. Its name literally means "lye fish."
Just sayin' while we're on this definitely non-cheese, non-bacon, non sammich topic...

QuoteQuote:
Mämmi (Finnish pronunciation: [ˈmęmmi]) is a traditional Finnish Easter dessert. The Swedish language name for it is memma.

Mämmi is made of water, rye flour, and powdered malted rye, seasoned with dark molasses, salt, and dried powdered Seville orange zest. The mixture is then allowed to go through a slow natural sweetening process before being baked in an oven until set. Preparation takes many hours, and after baking the mämmi is stored chilled for three to four days before being ready to eat.[1] Mämmi was traditionally stored in small bowls made of birch bark called tuokkonen or rove. Finnish packaging still prints birch bark-like texture on the carton boxes.

Generally mämmi is eaten cold with either milk or cream and sugar, and less commonly with vanilla sauce. It is also eaten by some spread on top of a slice of bread. There is a Finnish society for mämmi[2] founded by Ahmed Ladarsi, the former chef at the Italian Embassy in Helsinki, who claims that there are around fifty recipes containing mämmi.[3] There are a number of websites with recipes using mämmi most of which are in Finnish.

Originally mämmi was eaten during lent. Its laxative properties were associated with purification and purging. As the dish keeps well for several days, it was also a convenient food for Good Friday, when cooking was against religious custom.

I'm quite certain that you have a FAR better understanding of my language than I do of yours.

I wouldn't be surprised if you're right. After all, our attempt at world domination failed quite miserably in its infancy!

I finally figured out why I should not buy a K3 (since I have no problem with Ricoh)...

I really don't want to sand down the bases on all my M42 lenses. Rumor has it that the K3 suffers from the same M-mode glitch that has plagued the K-30/K-50 and K-01 crowd.
