Re: Market Failure!

I wish I could figure out why the OXO coldbrew maker clogs or leaks one out of four batches. The really enraging/confusing times are when it manages to do both.

Based on some brands I've seen in yoga, it's very, very little for some kinds.

Re: DOOM! (Insert extra Os as you see fit)

I am not trying to be glib when I point out that most elite college-educated women in their early twenties today live lives that would not seem very different from a prostitute’s to people in the era you are disparaging. Especially the part about leaving money on the dresser or paying their pimp in...

Re: the list of those things which are not food

In this thread because food bars aren't really food... WOLO bars are surprisingly good. They have the same weirdo fiber stuff as Quest Bars and ONE Bars, but less of it, so it's not as off-putting. The sweeteners are sugar (tapioca syrup) and stevia, which avoids sugar alcohols and sucralose, and fo...

Re: Powerful Mice in Space (The New Star Wars Gripe Thread)

On the minus side, Palpatine? Seriously? I read the 3 Timothy Zahn SW books and thought they were decent for what they were. However, I never ventured further into the books because I knew a plot point was the Emperor being immortal and recurring thanks to clones/the Force/whatever, and that struck...

This is the best marketing thing I've randomly watched in ages: Just a guy and his dog in the woods, hiking and fishing and camping and cooking.

Re: The son of "What the hell are YOU staring at?"

The hipster film bar near me was showing Fight Club for its 20th anniversary, so I went and saw it with a coworker. I've seen the movie many times, but I never saw it in the theater originally, and it's been years since I saw the whole thing with no interruptions. Aside from a few of the computer an...

I was thinking American Psycho, but perhaps she would manage to figure out it's a comedy.

I'm a borderline snake person, and most snake people I know are serious drinkers. Then again, I know lots of lawyers. That might be a factor.

Old Spice appears to have discontinued the body wash I've been using for 5+ years. Dammit. Same for David. He uses the Denali scent and suddenly can't find it anywhere in stores. He's been stocking up via resellers on Amazon but I'm not sure how long those will last, either. Yep, that's the one. I ...

Saw Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats last night, and it was a really good show. Only one opening act (Demob Happy, who were pretty good) and not a lot of downtime in between. Graveyard came on after UA, and while I didn't like them as much as UA, their bassist was playing a Rickenbacker 4003 through an O...

Re: Petty annoyances

The only good thing about Vegas is its proximity to the Sierra Nevadas, southern Utah, and some of the mountain ranges in Nevada (including Great Basin NP). Which is nowhere near enough to outweigh all the drawbacks.
