Salt and vinegar is the only thing to put on chips.
They sound like they should be a lot grosser than they are. They're actually good.
Ranch dressing is also good. Especially 3-cheeses ranch dressing.
(one) fried egg
fried potato chips
layer of mixed mayonnaise and ketchup (optional: mustard)
meat patty or similarly shaped thinly-sliced meat
fried minced onion
Lettuce and tomato (position may vary)
^Is the only way to eat a fried potato unless you have the benefits of Spanish culture.
Well personally I'd like to make it to my 60s.
Then Spanish culture it is.
Sounds like a weird but very good burger.
But the best fries are best just plain with some salt.
Like fries, good potato chips don't require anything extra. If it is just a carrier for the dip you are after, just eat the dip by the spoonful.
Spain gets a bad rap for all the colonial atrocities, but where would we be without potatoes and tomatoes ?
Turnip fries/chips ? No !
To all the pre-Columbian civs:
Thank you for your sacrifice. If I had a time machine I would give you mayonnaise and flintlock guns.
If you visit Argentinistan don't forget to ask me for one of my awesome Schnitzel sammiches.
They are. But I can't believe that Americans are deprived of them.
TIL another way pot can kill people... CHS is a condition which rarely ends in death but with higher concentrations of THC its becoming more common. In some people the pot smoke can cause severe nausea and stomach pain accompanied with vomiting. If it gets bad enough a person can die from dehydration and kidney failure. The cure: stop smoking and eating pot and pray you didn't do too much damage. Acid reducers are modern medicine's solution but continued pot use is unwise.
At 1:40 pm MacArthur ordered General Perry Miles to assemble troops on the Ellipse immediately south of the White House. Within the hour the 3rd Cavalry led by Patton, then a Major, crossed the Memorial Bridge, with the 12th Infantry arriving by steamer about an hour later. At 4 pm Miles told MacArthur that the troops were ready, and MacArthur (like Eisenhower, by now in service uniform), said that Hoover wanted him "on hand" to "take the rap if ..."
Although the troops were ready, Hoover twice sent instructions to MacArthur not to cross the Anacostia bridge that night, both of which were ignored. Shortly after 9 p.m., MacArthur ordered Miles to cross the bridge and evict the Bonus Army from its encampment.
At 4:45 p.m., commanded by General Douglas MacArthur, the 12th Infantry Regiment, Fort Howard, Maryland, and the 3rd Cavalry Regiment, supported by six M1917 light tanks commanded by Maj. George S. Patton, formed in Pennsylvania Avenue while thousands of civil service employees left work to line the street and watch. The Bonus Marchers, believing the troops were marching in their honor, cheered the troops until Patton ordered the cavalry to charge them, which prompted the spectators to yell, "Shame! Shame!"
Shacks that members of the Bonus Army erected on the Anacostia Flats burning after its confrontation with the army.
After the cavalry charged, the infantry, with fixed bayonets and tear gas (adamsite, an arsenical vomiting agent) entered the camps, evicting veterans, families, and camp followers. The veterans fled across the Anacostia River to their largest camp, and Hoover ordered the assault stopped. MacArthur chose to ignore the president and ordered a new attack, claiming that the Bonus March was an attempt to overthrow the US government. 55 veterans were injured and 135 arrested.  A veteran's wife miscarried. When 12-week-old Bernard Myers died in the hospital after being caught in the tear gas attack, a government investigation reported he died of enteritis, and a hospital spokesman said the tear gas "didn't do it any good."
During the military operation, Major Dwight D. Eisenhower, later the 34th president of the United States, served as one of MacArthur's junior aides. Believing it wrong for the Army's highest-ranking officer to lead an action against fellow American war veterans, he strongly advised MacArthur against taking any public role: "I told that dumb son-of-a-***** not to go down there," he said later. "I told him it was no place for the Chief of Staff."  Despite his misgivings, Eisenhower later wrote the Army's official incident report that endorsed MacArthur's conduct
TIL Douglas MacArthur rolled tanks on US citizens. Re-affirming beliefs about Patton and Mac.
The marchers were obviously communist agitators attempting to overthrow the government!
Things not covered in American History classes. . .
@Estebonrober Cool story. Thanks.
Personally I'd start with a smallpox vaccine, but it's the thought that counts.
This is the best chip flavor:
This is a correct opinion!
On the subject of colonization and smallpox: I recently learned (not today) that the huge amounts of death in the Americas from ~1500-1650s caused the planet to become cooler. There was so much abandoned farmland reclaimed by wild vegetation, that CO2 levels dropped globally by several percent.
