Willen wrote:Masking: it is a term in painting where you cover all or part of a portion of an area or object so you only paint the sections you want to paint. For example, if you are painting your all-white walls blue, but want to leave the trim around your windows white, you mask off the window trim (usually with tape made specifically for this purpose called "masking tape"). Then you can paint your walls and the area around the windows without worrying about getting blue paint on the white trim, since the masking tape will protect the window trim from being accidentally painted on. Then remove the masking tape to reveal nice, crisp lines separating the blue of the wall and the white of the trim.
Rendering: the process of converting waste animal tissue produced from the slaughtering of animals for food into feed meal for animals and other products like glues and greases. The processes are not something that I want to detail here...
Pan: either 1) a fry pan - a cooking implement generally used for frying and sauteing, or 2) baking pan - a large cooking dish or tray with raised sides used in baking. The first type of pan is usually having a round, circular shape with sloped, shallow sides and a handle for holding/moving, pans are typically available in sizes from 6" to 12" in diameter and sides that rise to about 2" to 4". Do not confuse pans with pots, which have much higher sides and are used in making soups, stews and sauces. Common materials that pans are made of include, iron, aluminum and steel. Another popular variation is a metal pan coated with a non-stick material like Teflon.
Crop: cultivated plants considered in a group: "the corn crop" or the total amount of such products produced in a certain place or season: "this year's orange crop was about average".
And yes, I took this joke post way past the point of amusing to annoying. Even I got tired of this joke about halfway through typing it. I blame the lack of sleep (again). BTW, googling "masking" and "rendering" bring up primarily image/graphics-related pages. Googling "pan" brings up GTK+ newsreader, Greek mythology, and pesticide related pages. "Crop" brings up agriculture, poverty research, and cosmic ray research related pages.
Build a man a fire, and he will be warm for a night. Set a man on fire, and he will be warm for the rest of his life.
