Grating ginger can be a grating activity. The grater gets clogged, you cut your knuckles and you end up swearing off stir-fries for life. In this week’s episode of Mad Genius Tips, F&W’s Test Kitchen boy wonder Justin Chapple shares his fast, easy and bloodless method for grating ginger that requires only a spoon and a fork. It’s so easy, you’ll want to grate some ginger immediately and make these blood orange-ginger margaritas. Watch more Mad Genius Tips here.
When I grow up I want to be Ming-Na Wen.
She’s the voice of Mulan, as if she wasn’t amazing enough.
She broke it with her fingers. Not a fist, her fingers.
Girl is 50 years old.
FIFTY. YEARS. OLD.
fun fact: When you break things with your hands like that you have t break your fingers on purpose before so that they heal stronger. So basically this woman is so badass she broke her hands just to do this.
You asshat,you’re making it sound like she snaps her fingers in half.
Martial artists like Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee (and yes, fucking Ming-Na Wen, that beautiful badass) will build up their bone strength by repeatedly (and fairly gently) striking sand, gravel, wood and steel - this creates tons of microfractures in their bones (smaller than even a hairline fracture) so the bones will heal over again and make the bones stronger and denser with increased deposits of calcium.
This has to be done over long-ass periods of time, so the bones have time to heal, and none of the fractures expand into actual breaks.
Oh, and she’s doing precise-ass kicks in HIGH HEELS.
