How To Eat A Bowl of Pho

Resist the urge to dive into your bowl of pho immediately after it is placed in front of you. A little patience and adherence to the following will enhance and enlighten your pho experience.

Step One: Season your pho
Lift your spoon and sample the steamy broth. Mmmm. If the broth is a little bland, add a dash of fish sauce. Not too much, just a little at first and more if you need it. Next, add a sprinkle of black pepper and squeeze an entire wedge of lime into your bowl.

Step Two: Add herbs and sprouts
Add about a handful of beansprouts to your pho. Use your chop-sticks to push them down to the bottom of the bowl. Make sure to submerge any pieces of rare beef that are still pink as well. Next, add 10-12 leaves of Thai Basil to your bowl after removing them from the stems. If your pho restaurant serves saw herb, tear 2-3 of them into one inch long pieces and place them in the pho as well. Add 3-4 slices of serrano chili if you enjoy your pho spicy. Alternately, keep the serrano chili to the side for later use.

Step Three: Prepare for dipping
Squeeze some hoisin sauce and sriracha chili into a small saucer. A 50/50 split is recommended, but use less sriracha if you are sensitive to spicy foods. Mix the two sauces together where they meet along the border using the tip of your chopsticks. Take a taste of your creation.
At this point some like to add a splash of hoisin or sriracha chili to the broth. Purists frown on this practice, but to each his own.

Step Four: Time to eat
You are now ready to enjoy your pho! Use your chopsticks and spoon to evenly mix all the ingredients in your bowl. Pair pieces of beef with Thai basil, saw herb or a slice of serrano chili - dip into the hoisin sauce / siracha chili mixture you made in Step Three. Don't forget to sip the broth in between bites of noodles and beef. Enjoy!

I know something about you. It’s something very important. Something critical to your survival, in fact.

You live in a wooden home.

Furthermore, this home has four flat outer walls.

I know this not because I have divine powers, but because over 99% of the people who will visit this blog live in such structures. You probably never thought anything about this. You may have had to hang something up in your home by anchoring it to the wall studs, like a television or a piece of artwork or a pull-up bar, but you’ve probably never once considered just why materials like wood were laid together along right angles to protect you from the chaos and destruction of nature, like blizzards, raccoons, and bears.

I am now going to tell you why it is all wrong, and I am going to tell you what the solution is. This is not opinion or conjecture. This is hard physical science. Literally hard. I’m talking about concrete. But not just any old concrete. I’m talking about concrete domes.

Yes, that’s right: concrete domes.

“Why on Earth would I want to live in a dome?” you might ask. Well, you already do. Your skull is a dome. The dome, an excellent example of a curvilinear shape, is the strongest and most efficient shape there can be found in nature. It utilizes the least amount of material for the greatest possible strength. This is why it is ubiquitous in nature from skulls to shells to the Earth itself.

You see, when a force acts upon a cube-shaped wooden house, it acts upon a linear vector: a long, flat, thin wall, as seen by ex. A:

As you can see by the illustration, the house is NOT SAFE in the event of an earthquake because the forces are totally perpendicular to the flat wall. Thus, the full brunt of the force is felt throughout the structure, and the wood, much weaker than steel, is destroyed. Structures like these simply do not stand any chance to resist large forces like that of hurricanes or earthquakes and other natural disasters. Furthermore, wood is flammable, it will rot if left wet, it can become a breeding grounds for harmful mold and other fungi, and is the favored food of termites. Wood may be malleable and easy to work with, but as far as keeping you safe from a very dangerous and entropic world in constant pursuit of absorbing your life force, it is a terrible building material.

Reinforced concrete has none of these issues. See ex. B below:

As you can see, the greater strength of reinforced concrete in conjunction with the aperpendicular shape of the structure leads to the greatest distribution of force and therefore the greatest level of protection for you and your family.

So there you have it: proof positive that a concrete dome is the safest possible place for you and your family. Godspeed.
