    Dunno mate, I've never actually bought any, or used it. All about the olive oil, me.


    Think they used to cook chips in it.

    Yeah, pretty much.

    We used to get spam fritters at school when I was a nipper. Which wasn't during the war btw. **** knows who still buys corned beef. Mix it in with mashed potato though, and chopped spring onions. World class hangover cure that, back in the day.

    I used to live with someone who would deep fry stuff in lard. ****ing stunk the house out and I ended up lobbing the fryer out the window when drunk one night.

    What do we do with suffering? As far as I can see, we have two choices—we either transform our suffering into something else, or we hold on to it, and eventually pass it on.

    In order to transform our pain, we must acknowledge that all people suffer. By understanding that suffering is the universal unifying force, we can see people more compassionately, and this goes some way toward helping us forgive the world and ourselves. By acting compassionately we reduce the world’s net suffering, and defiantly rehabilitate the world. It is an alchemical act that transforms pain into beauty. This is good. This is beautiful.

    To not transform our suffering and instead transmit our pain to others, in the form of abuse, torture, hatred, misanthropy, cynicism, blaming and victimhood, compounds the world’s suffering. Most sin is simply one person’s suffering passed on to another. This is not good. This is not beautiful.

    The utility of suffering, then, is the opportunity it affords us to become better human beings. It is the engine of our redemption.

    My Nana used lard to fry all the time, even for my bacon sandwiches. I'm probably due a heart attack in another or year or two.

    The person you think you used to be has gone, and is never coming back. The idealised impression of your past self that your present self competes with is a mirage. Every moment you live is a rapid and shocking abandonment of the last version of yourself. You are forever ‘straying from the person you used to be’. You are an autonomous entity coursing through time, moored only to the eternal now.

    We should not attempt to return to a past that no longer exists, or seize upon a future that is forever beyond our reach, but should instead travel along our own inner axes to a more meaningful part of our present selves.

    We may feel sadness for what we have lost to the past — our freedom, our vigour, our values, our playfulness, our openness to life — but regrets can be a wonderful indicator of how to improve the current condition of our souls. Rather than allowing these regrets to swallow us up, we can let them identify our present needs. We can call back these lost parts of ourselves and live them in a wiser, more experienced way, instead of wasting precious time in pointless competition with the past.

    This call to adventure can begin immediately, in the next moment. We can incrementally shift the direction of our impulses toward the next best thing, rather than the worst, and not become consumed by our regrets, but informed by them, as they guide us forward toward the more necessary part of our nature.

    8 a.m. My husband moves toward me. He’s always hard in the morning. He’s kissing my neck. I happen to love his morning breath, I always have. Our kids are miraculously still sleeping. I let him make love to me. It feels so good. We both come pretty quickly. I’m not regretful.

    1 p.m. The rest of the day feels a lot lighter. Sure, I released some tension with the orgasm but I think it’s much deeper than that. I think the sex gave us both hope that we might be okay, and hope is the most important feeling in the world.

    6 p.m. I go for a jog around the neighborhood before dinner. I don’t want my husband to get away with murder; but I don’t want to burn down our marriage just because I feel like it’s my moral obligation. I still don’t know what to do, but perhaps I’m slightly less stuck.

    The OP says Questions and Answers but I don't think we have to follow a chronology ask a question or just provide an answer, it's all good.

    It's not from a book it's from a Nick Cave site where fans post in questions, anything at all and he answers some of them. Sometimes the answers are very interesting, well I think so anyway.

    That last one struck a note with me.

    It's an interesting one, many aspects of which I would agree with. I'd like to say I wrote it, but sadly I never. <laugh>
