Re: A Brave Familiar World; Let's Play...

Question One: You are in need of shelter. Which shelter is most ideal? A balanced distance between the countryside and the city. Question Two: Upon setting out for your new home, you are told that you can bring several books with you. Which books are most ideal? Scientific texts; to better preserve...

Re: Weird Al

Continued working through all of the concerts... I just got to Calgary, which is a notable exception to Weird Al's usual high quality. You can tell very blatantly that the playing is live since someone keeps playing in the wrong key at the beginning of every couple songs.

Re: Inspirational tales of Glorious Unfettered Capitalism

From elsewhere:
So..amazons "15" dollar cheapskate
We usually get a 16% bonus per month for peak (oct-Jan)
Since this change...they adjusted pay to be around a 6% bonus
So amazon is cutting 10% per worker with praise
And 2% off peak
So its effectively a pay decrease

Re: Inspirational tales of Glorious Unfettered Capitalism

As part of the SEC plea deal, Muskie's going to step down as the CEO of Tesla. He'll stay CEO, but step down as Chairman. The part that stings the most, though, is that he's settling "without admitting or denying the allegations of the complaint" which means that he can't claim to have do...

Re: What Do You Mean Yours Doesn't Do That?

Where I grew up (middle of nowhere upstate NY college town) the Asian restaurants tended to be yell-your-order-to-the-kitchen-in-their-language legit and everything else was white people.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

I not-infrequently eat burgers and I've had a couple Impossible Burgers from Bareburger. In my experience it's slightly not quite there yet to replicate beef, but it's close enough that if you told me it was some exotic meat (elk or bison or whatever) I wouldn't question whether or not it's meat - j...

Re: WEREWOLF 101 (PT)

I'm glad I at least called Newbie. If it was Beat I should've realized it because while Beat said Newbie was suspicious, Beat never actually voted for him (and the accusations were both of them calling the other suspicious on Day 2, but not actually voting.)

I'm curious to know what this was.

I was thinking of posting my list late at night and decided to put more thought into it first, but accidentally hit 'Submit'.

Re: WEREWOLF 101 (PT)

I rated you the most suspicious because this is your accusation record:
Newbie accusations: Caithness, Kayma, Leeham, Romo [fatal], hngkong, Grath
You've accused literally every surviving player except Beat of being the wolf, and you were the dogpile that killed Romo.

Re: Oh those pet peeves

I've never heard anyone refer to a scent free or free scent environment, though I suppose any public space rotates between the two. Well, the Canadian government has guidelines for a scent-free policy in the workplace (and you can even order posters !). I'm not sure what the regulations are for the...
