HIS many names

Postby Omar Ravenhurst » Thu Sep 15, 2005 11:41 pm

Just ran across this list buried like treasure in a google cache of the many names that the FSM goes by in English alone!
The English language, English word pasta generally refers to noodles and other food products made from a flour and water paste, often including also Egg (food), egg and salt. Less frequently, the term ''macaroni'' is used for the same products. ''Pasta'' can also denote dishes in which pasta products are the primary ingredient, served with sauce or seasonings. The word comes from Italian language, Italian ''pasta'' which means basically "paste", and by extension "dough", "pasta", or "pastry" as in "small cake". As recently as 1918 the English word "paste" was used instead of or alongside the Italian ''pasta''[http://www.bartleby.com/87/0006.html]. Wheat noodles are by far the most common noodles in Asia (c.f., Chinese noodles and the Japanese udon and somen) and Europe (c.f., spaghetti), while rice noodles tend to be rare outside of Asia. In English-speaking countries, Italian noodles are the kind most often referred to as "pasta". In Italy, pasta with sauce (''sugo'') is often called "pastasciutta" ("asciutta" means "dry," indicating that the pasta is not served in broth). While it is often said that Marco Polo brought the concept back with him from China, pasta had been known in Europe for many centuries before his voyage. The earliest known records are found on Etruscan civilization, Etruscan tomb decorations from the 4th century BC. Thomas Jefferson is credited with bringing the first ''macaroni'' machine to America in 1789 when he returned home after serving as Ambassador (diplomacy), ambassador to France. Common pasta sauces include pesto (usually a green sauce), marinara (a red tomato-based sauce), and alfredo (a white cream sauce).

Although i find that fascinating, it was probably linkable. Read the copyright thread in Announcement for more detail. Kudos for finding it though.
Religious war at its very simplest is killing each other over who has the best imaginary friend.

Set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
