Idiot Sighting - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    We had to have the garage door repaired. The Sears repairman told us

    that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough

    motor on the opener. I thought for a minute, and said that we

    had the largest one Sears made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower. He shook

    his head and said, 'Lady, you need a 1/4 horsepower.' I responded that 1/2

    was larger than 1/4. He said, 'NO, it's not. Four is larger than two.'

    We haven't used Sears repair since.


    My daughter and I went through the McDonald's take-out window and I gave

    the clerk a $5 bill. Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her a quarter.

    She said, 'you gave me too much money.' I said, 'Yes I know, but this way

    you can just give me a dollar bill back.' She sighed and went to get the

    manager who asked me to repeat my request.. I did so, an and he handed me

    back the quarter, and said 'We're sorry but they could not do that kind of

    thing. The clerk then proceeded to give me back $1 and 75 cents in


    Do not confuse the clerks at McD's.


    I live in a semi-rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local

    township administrative office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING

    sign on our road. The reason: 'Too many deer are being hit by cars out here!

    I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.'

    My daughter went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco. She asked the person

    behind the counter for 'minimal lettuce.' He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg lettuce.

    I was at the airport , checking in at the gate when an

    airport employee asked, Has anyone put anything in your baggage

    without your knowledge? To which I replied, 'If it was without

    my knowledge, how would I know?' He smiled knowingly

    and nodded, 'That's why we ask.'

    Happened in Birmingham , Ala.


    The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it's

    safe to cross the street. I was crossing with an

    intellectually challenged coworker of mine.

    She asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I explained that it signals

    blind people when the light is red. Appalled, she responded, What on

    earth are blind people doing driving?

    She was a probation officer in Wichita , KS


    I work with an individual who plugged her power

    strip back into itself and for the sake of her life, couldn't

    understand why her system would not turn on.

    A deputy with the Dallas County Sheriffs office,

    no less.


    When my husband and I arrived at an automobile

    dealership to pick up our car, we were told the keys had been

    locked in it. We went to the service department and found a

    mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver's

    side door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the

    door handle and discovered that it was unlocked. Hey,' I announced to the

    technician, 'its open!' His reply, 'I know. I already got that side.

    This was at the Ford dealership in Canton ,



    They walk among us...........
