Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

True story: a barbeque place in a nearby town had a history of poor grades and occasional shut-downs by the health department. I ate there every chance I got. While I'm generally in agreement with the idea that food sanitation is important (In my kitchen, I treat raw chicken like HAZAMAT), I make e...

Re: Market Failure!

Ha! We just used one the other day to get Black Panther. Redbox is good for people like me who never get to see movies in theaters, hate spoilers, want to see movies as soon as they come out on DVD, yet are still too cheap to pay $5 to rent them. :lol:

Re: Home $weet Home

Peel-and-stick doesn't come in any pale wood colors, which is what we'd like to get. But now that I'd mentally prepared for peel-and-stick, the floating floor sounds extra hard and extra expensive! *flops around in agonies of indecision*

Re: Home $weet Home

Hmm ... I'm waffling about doing a peel-and-stick vinyl floor instead. It would require a lot more prep work to get the subfloor ready. But it seems like it might be a little easier to install than the floating floor kind (not having to make sure to leave the spacing on the edges, for instance) and ...

I'm in a bunch of sewing groups on Facebook and I cannot BELIEVE how many posts are "I made the [blah blah shirt] and hacked the pattern to give it a cold shoulder!" You did EXTRA WORK ON PURPOSE for that look that will not get any more current or sensible or flattering. why. whyyyyy.

There is something to Bourdain's assertion that if you're not willing to get the shits, maybe resign yourself to the more boring foods, but know you're missing out. Agreed. I'm willing to turn in my decoder ring over some food safety laws. I don't hate that restaurants have to meet certain standard...

The Obamas are coming to Netflix. The former president and first lady have a multiyear deal to produce shows and films for the streaming service.

Re: Thar's Silicon In Them Thar Hills - Westworld w/ spoilers

So they have guns that shoot blanks and real bullets at the same time? (Edited to add: I had assumed the guns only fire blanks, but the hosts' synthetic skin is programmed to react to a blank and "explode"/bleed as though a real bullet hit it. Or even to a blank coming near it -- wasn't there a mome...

I also feel like there's a large overlap between people who fap over the royal wedding and people who bitch about American society paying too much attention to Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian and other "famous for being famous" rich people.

Re: Thar's Silicon In Them Thar Hills - Westworld w/ spoilers

Has it been explained anywhere how the hosts suddenly got weapons that are fatal to humans? I understand the idea of programming being overridden -- e.g., while once they could only wave a knife at a human and would be prevented by their programming from stabbing, now they can slash and hack at will...

Re: To Infinity War and Beyond: the MCU Thread with Spoilers

Finally saw Black Panther . If we were real woke white people we would have seen it earlier, I suppose. It was ... fine. I liked that it wasn't an origin story or a "look at my suit's cool powers" movie, as we have had plenty of those, but I don't know how well what it actually was worked for me. Ki...
