I grew up with Nintendo and Game Boy, and now I'm a big fan of iOS games. I play Sims Freeplay, Pocket Planes, Tiny Tower (original and Vegas) and Sim City BuildIt.

comment What's the minimum amount of oil for making popcorn?
Maybe it depends on how much popcorn you make. I usually do 1/3 or 1/2 cup. Never been greasy.

comment How does one tell if a jalapeno is spicy?
@MargeGunderson... LOL... That is kinda gross! I think the striations are genetic, so not all jalapeños get them. I'm not 100% sure about the age but it makes a certain amount of sense that they would get more as they grow larger.

I've heard that the striations actually have nothing to do with heat level but how fast the pepper grows. The striations are like stretch marks.

I think if I attempted that, I would shave off some skin too, knowing how clumsy I am.
