I used a pair of rubber/silicone tongs on the inside of the (dried) glass to help pull it out. That and a butter knife can sometimes work it loose enough to get it out.

You can make pemmican with it. Basically just grind it up into a powder and mix with an equal amount of melted tallow. Google "Pemmican Guide" if you're interested. It is a wonderful backpacking food.

A mountain of potatoes and a good amount of steak or other lean protein. Plus some fruit and maybe some milk.

I tried the method and while I got a super slick surface, some parts of the pan still had a brownish tint instead of being jet black. I did not do the vinegar soak step because the pans appeared to have no rust on them. Was that my mistake?

The comments on that article are also a gold mine of information. There is a link to a study that used different oils and discussion of iodine values. One of the comments posits that soybean oil is actually more effective since it has a higher iodine value.

www.nerdfitness.com is great.
They had a post a few months ago about "Walking to Mordor"

You could adapt that for jogging if that's more to your liking. It had been a great motivator for me to walk at least 5 miles throughout the day.

I'm going to dissent and say it's probably fine. If you wash it well with soap and water, you will probably remove all of the residue that might still be on the baking sheet. Aluminum is not very porous, so I don't think it's going to hold on to the chemicals.

I think the myth that eggs (or any other high-cholesterol food) are aretery-clogging has been thoroughly debunked. Dietary cholesterol has little effect on serum levels.

Nope, lard is pig fat. Beef fat is tallow. At least that's what they refer to in standard U.S. English. I think the meanings can differ in other countries.

Lard has a similar percentage of oleic acid as olive oil, though it's obviously more saturated. It's also similar to human body fat. It doesn't make sense that the human body would store energy in a form that is inherently harmful.

I second the recommendation of flourless chocolate cake. America's test kitchen has a good recipe that is made solely of chocolate (an entire pound), butter, eggs, and vanilla.

I also recently made this crustless cheesecake that was very good: http://www.cookingdebauchery.com/cooking_debauchery/2007/02/the_cheesecake.html

I'm also not big on dessert, and to complicate matters, I don't eat wheat. But I've found some things that I do like for occasions where cake is called for:

Crustless cheesecake: http://www.cookingdebauchery.com/cooking_debauchery/2007/02/the_cheesecake.html
I used honey in place of the sugar, and much less of it, so the cake was just slightly sweet. It's good topped with cooked down strawberries.

And flourless chocolate cake from America's Test Kitchen is also good. Basically just a pound of dark chocolate, 1/2lb butter, and 6(?) eggs. all mixed together.
