And this discussion is silly... making it a question of it's own.

And then there's the episode of Good Eats where Alton recants his previous "no oil on pasta water" because, while it doesn't help sticking, he says is does reduce help with boiling over.

@Aaronut Well, a good science-y source would do. In this book Hervé This clearly states that oil on pasta water is unnecessary to "coat the pasta", but says nothing about surface tension/boiling over, so if you've got a source where he addresses that I'd be satisfied.

@Aaronut I've heard it both ways, do you have a reliable source for that?

comment At what stage should Dark Soy sauce be added while making noodles?
What dish are you making? "I'm adding the sauce before I put my cooked noodles in", in what? The optimal quantity to add will depend on the quantity you're making.

comment Botulism, Garlic, Cold pressed Olive oil and mason jars
Due to the separation that would occur, I don't see how adding balsamic (or any other acid) to the mix will inhibit the botulism. Unless the marinade is stored as a suspension or emulsification, the pH of the oil will not be altered much at all by the acidity of another layer below it.

Disagree with @rumtscho. Trying something new with friends is way more fun that by yourself.
