Re: Twitter!

I'm not going to put a divider down behind my stuff. You want to keep your stuff from mingling with mine, you put the divider down behind me. I tend to use my shopping box as the divider in front of my stuff, it's super obvious. And the belt would need to be like 15 feet long to have 3 people's stuf...

Re: Good Cover Versions

I really enjoyed this. I like The Sound of Silence, and I like (the style of) Ghost, and I think this version ends up a LOT better than Disturbed's version (which isn't really in the style of Disturbed, more like "sung by the guy from Disturbed"):

Re: Food

I do not like pears. Maybe there are some varieties that don't have that horrible texture, but I haven't had any that don't have that gritty mush texture that is bleh.

With every day that passes, I go more and more in the "Musk is a shyster and a dangerous person" camp. And this Cybertruck, no matter what the Tesla fanboys in my FB feed want, will be vaporware.

Re: cars and how they get that way

I was in a budget planning meeting today and the campus planner went off on a brief tangent about how do you handle needing way more parking on your campus now, but knowing self-driving cars are coming down the pike (except you don't know exactly when)? It was a really interesting thing to ponder! ...

Re: Food

First time doing pan-frying (shallow frying) and it worked out really well. We were making a tempura-battered tilapia (from Hello Fresh) and we did great with the timing, temperature, and batter consistency. I love fried fish, and this ended up pretty darn good. The salad that it came with was trash...

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

But you have two hands! (I presume; tell me if I'm wrong) One hand holds elastic down and the other one aims if necessary. So none of this is an issue if I'm not also navigating the fly of my _pants_. But I need one [more] hand to handle that if the fly of the underwear doesn't roughly line up with...

Re: DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TWICE ANNUAL GRIPE THREAD

It's a plot by auto body shops to drum up more business. Or maybe a plot to expose Vampires, because apparently nobody plans ahead with their sun visor, so they come around the corner, or over the rise, and recoil in horror at the sudden appearance of the sun.

Re: Thumb a Hundred Bucks: The Cashless Economy Thread
