My brother sent me a link the other day:
In the comments some guy said something to the effect of: just go buy a bagel, it's not worth the time to make it yourself.
Coincidentally, I had just started making bagels again. The latest was my best iteration so far: 70% hydration and lye water bath.
The guy commenting doesn't understand that when you make homemade bagels, it's not entirely about the bagels!
