The Escapist Advice Thread

 Pages 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 . . . 15 NEXT

Inspired by LRR's "ask Kathleen" segments that existed in a time gone by, and the fact that the actual advice forums are filled with questions only about relationships and PC builds.
And I think that we here at the Forum Games can do a better job at offering help for life's small problems.

The game is that one person asks for advice, the other gives a reasonable and well-meaning ludicrous, malicious or silly answer and then asks for help with one of his problems.

Any question? Good.

Remember, all that free meat I told you to get. Well now, you can make good use of it.

First, remove the clothes from your meat, as they get in the way and also will soak up the spices.
Secondly, put the oil in a pan on the heat. Then leave the meat to lightly simmer until it's done.
