Re: the list of those things which are not food

The 'neighborhood walmart' mostly-grocery store near me has chicken feet and calls them 'chicken paws' which seems wtf by walmart standards. Asian marts, sure, but walmart?

Re: Horrible, Offensive Geekery

Also the heat of vaporization of water is about 2.2 mJ/kg. So to remove 340kg of water per day you have to dump about half a kWh into the air, so you're looking at best case around 50Wh for the heat pump, if every joule it moved went straight into removing water from the air, but a good portion is a...

Seriously, with strategic clothing, it's easy to be comfortable in Colorado from 20F to 90F and not that hard to be comfortable-adjacent in the next +/- 10F at either end.

I've run out of episodes of Tiny House, Big Living and have now moved on to Tiny Luxury, a show about an extremely punchable-looking couple from Portland who build tiny houses for a living. Only one season is available on Hulu, which makes me very sad as I feel this will be quite the buffet of hate...

Re: Market Failure!

That's cute you guys but seriously, "Kum N Go" is the only one of those that comes close to Piggly Wiggly. It edges King Soopers, but just barely. Seriously, Soopers. Just so we're clear that's a descriptor, not a surname.
