The Meijer near me has about 20 checkout lines, and 15 of them are now self-serve, and then they only have one cashier line open. I don't like that.

My Safeway just got rid of self checkout. Now how am I going to avoid being judged by someone who may or may not have a high school diploma?

I have a giant thing of crushed red pepper I got at Costco when I first got a college apartment in 2006. It is a decade later and it still isn't finished despite how much crushed red pepper I eat. The pepper is stale and not as flavorful. Still I refuse to relent. If I die before I complete this task, pour the rest of it in my dead mouth and bury me like the failure I am.

How much do you have left?

The only people dumb enough not to see it were poor people who can't think more than 2 weeks ahead. WAAAAA I have to pay 40 dollars NOW to save literally HUNDREDS of dollars on gas and groceries over the year WAAAAA.

There's some interesting research about how poor kids learn decision making and what's optimal for them, but you're probably just trolling.

This is what I was referring to but in a more over the top jokey way. Thank you for pointing it out.

Semi unrelated but I love those videos of really young kids trying to make a good decision about eating the marshmallow. They're so bad at it!

edit: plus it uh sheds some light on how I make my own choices

Persian Market - vegetables, herbs, mexican beef, single chicken breasts that are somehow 2lbs each

That's no chicken breast.

I want to use catstare here but it suggests too much.

Lol if you think cooking is some kind of art full of opinions and free spirits. Art doesn't exist. It's all hard science, and the best are so especially skilled and drilled in the rules that they can make fools think art is happening.

Like you think the dude wrapping his polish up in his pizza slice is some fatlord savant, but he's hitting all the basic rules of culinary excellence.

Cooking is art.

Baking is science.

I live in the boonies so it's like a 3 hour round trip to a Costco town. The shipping cost is offset by me not having to drive my day away.

Oster blenders are excellent budget blenders if you donít want to spend vitamix bucks. The Versa line that is. 7 year warranty too!

Total Crushing Technology sounds pretty badass.

edit: apparently that's a Ninja feature. My bad.

Yea, a good choice to hot dog myself to death

Might as well. Seems like one of the better ways to escape this prison planet.
