Sorry, but:

Going Gaga about the royals > whining about going Gaga about the royals.
That sort of thing is the nature of this thread though. There's some kind of "it" that someone doesn't get.

Re: Home $weet Home

This is part of the death spiral of no savings. People will spend astronomical money on a forever basis so they don't have a one time event in the $1k zone. See also extended auto warranties. Low deductible high premium insurance. Anything so you don't have to have savings.

Having some bar friends who are just hitting 30 is weird because they were all emo kids and talk about the cure and bauhaus like something kinda old timey but classy thing your grandpa listened to.

That meat will not be cooked to USDA temp specs, no. 165F is a joke and a set of chains. I separate raw protein from non protein cutting and I wash knives and board yes.

I hate them. I don't understand what they are supposed to be doing. When people talk about nice shoulders, a window that shows your humeral head framed by fabric is not what they are talking about.

I dunno about better but the behavior is inconsistent with the “owned by the kremlin” narratives. You have to really stretch to make that fit.
