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

Also, Bernard is drastically under-utilized, while Lukewarm Hemsworth shouldn't be utilized at all. Agreed, but I think it could have worked to underutilize him even more, i.e. the show has traditionally not had a problem with just leaving important characters out of entire episodes to focus on som...

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

Yeah that car chase was pretty awful. And then the soundtrack put it in farcical territory. IMO worst episode of the series so far. Jarring shift in tone. Too much telling, not enough showing. Dosing Caleb felt pointless, or at best a failed attempt to make the chase more interesting. I think it wan...

Re: Gentry from the block

Well this is quite a way to spin rising incomes as a bad thing. Barrio Logan’s Latino population dropped from 86 percent in 2000 to 72 percent in 2010; its white population grew from 6 percent to 16 percent. The median household income in the neighborhood rose from $20,604 to $26,761 in that same p...

Re: Food

Looks like I fucked up the sourdough starter.

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

FEMA's inefficiencies really shouldn't surprise anyone here. Centralized systems, especially something as far removed from the ground as the federal government, are routinely bad about allotting resources. FEMA is also notoriously bad at this stuff. All the stories that came out after Katrina where...

Don't know how much laundry you typically generate (everyone is different), but if it were me, rather than risk going to a laundromat I'd rediscover the joys of washing by hand in a sink.

Been watching High Maintenance on HBO. Very entertaining. But wow, just when I thought New York couldn't get any more solipsistic, there it is. First episode of season 2, at the time I would have roundly mocked for being overdramatic about being traumatized by Trump's election. In hindsight complete...

Rather than rely on corrupt, conflicted international institutions such as the WHO, the United States and its allies should engage in self-help.

Re: Corona(virus)? ITS NOT EVEN BEER DAMMIT!!!

My take on bread has been that it's super easy to get it edible, but there's also an extremely high skill ceiling. And I like both of those things. Definitely. There's a reason that my go-to to bring to potlucks is fresh bread. Me too! If I'm making for other people, I find frying up some bacon and...

One note: if you've never made bread before, the shaping step can be tricky to nail. Watch a video. And accept you'll probably get it wrong the first time. For anyone who is interested in starting with bread, I've been a big fan of the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day approach, which I think the...
