I guess nobody here likes Buffalo Wings.

You may have unrealized expectations in how popular your topics would be -- or how soon people reply to them.  And it is a weekend.

(And, you're right, I despise Buffalo wings.)

I am very popular on other forums and my threads usually have a ton of responses that go on for like 15 pages or more, so I guess I am just not used to this kind of response to my epic postings. :)

I don't see the appeal of them either....all that work for a bit of sauced meat.

Work? Well it's not like all I eat is wings, but the sauced meat you so eloquently referenced is tasty as hell.

I tend to go with Classic Mild Buffalo wings, ESPECIALLY if I'm ordering from some place I've never eaten at that isn't a chain. If I know the joint, such as B-Dub's, I'll try something different each time I go in. I've lost quite a bit of tolerance for hot foods in recent years, so my explorations are limited due to my weaker palate. That said, classic buffalo wings are really hard to beat, and I eat them regularly. 

Side note: I did have some amazing sweet Thai bbq wings at Thai-D recently that proved to be MUCH better than expected.

There's nothing like making your own sauce, man. For example: http://www.eatthelove.com/2014/01/mole-chicken/

I love Buffalo wings, and the Frank's original is pretty good stuff. I like a LOT of sauce on mine. I haven't quite found the perfect ratio of butter to sauce for me, but I like mine on the hotter side, say, a 6.5 on a scale of one to ten. One day I'll make my own hot sauce, but not just yet. I have also found/created a few different sauces for wings that I really like now and then as well.

Wings are so delicious because of the high ratio of skin and fat to meat as compared to the breast. Buffalo Wild Wings is good. I usually stick to the Caribbean jerk and mango habanero flavors when I'm there (rarely these days). When I make them at home, my coating is a mixture of Sriracha and toasted sesame oil, which is also a great dip for Chinese dumplings.

50 gallon water heater heats 25 gallons

Brand new 50 gallon water heater still can't fill a standard sized tub, but starts giving tepid water at 25 gals or so.  Service call couldn't find a problem.  I'm beginning to wonder if I'm crazy to expect a hot bath,  or if there's a spell in the house.  Any idea what's wrong?   I'm planning to call the installer again and if he can't fix it have him take it out...but will the next be better?  it has to be the heater, right?See More
