Come unto me, all ye who are weary of heavy-laden clients and I will give you REST.

Agile is the substance of features planned for, the avoidance of milestones unseen.

comment Eating mangoes with skin intact
There is only one research. The one in Israel is referring to that one research. It could be the mango tree beetle-cide that is used on the orchard. That particular "research" needs to be repeated. People should stop the circular referencing based on one "research", even if it was done with the NIH.

comment Eating mangoes with skin intact
I think its more that people are not using fruit/veggie detergent or baking soda to wipe the pesticides and whatever-cides before they ate the mango skins. Especially the ones you bought straight from the orchard. Mango skin has a layer of sticky oil that retains such chemicals well. A lady who had eaten mangoes all her life blogged that when she ate the mango with its skin intact from an orchard in FL, her lips started swell, and attributed it to the mythical presence of urushiol, she had just read. Wouldn't the "urushiol" could simply have easily merged into the cutting board too? Illogical!

comment Eating mangoes with skin intact
I have a huge doubt about human allergy/sensitivity to mangoes or mango skin. I have never encountered anyone who had such allergy. There is so far only one single research on this subject, and the same "research" has been referenced by every page attempting to document the subject, all over the internet. I'm afraid it could be simply like the doctor who fraudulently attributed autism to vaccination, which then everyone virally referenced his unverified "research" until some common-sensed people decided to verify his claims.

comment Why is it necessary for Turkish Coffee to start brewing with cold water?
+Mischa, "Coffee particles have more time to soak in the solvent". Then why not soak the coffee in a slow cooker overnight? I'm allergic to coffee, so I wouldn't know what I am asking.

comment Is it safe to eat chicken that is still frozen?
I am confused by this question. I have eaten thawed frozen chicken sandwich before. I don't see how eating the sandwich thawed is less dangerous than eating it when it was frozen.

comment Without knife skills, how can I quickly and accurately dice vegetables?
I cut either the parsley, cilantro, sweet pepper, mint or onions into ~2-inch strips (into quarters for onions) and simply throw them into a blender without exceeding the height of blender blade by more than a cm. Turn the blender on for 10 to 20 secs and accept the mushy result.
