Going off myself at the worst, a fifth of liquor and a couple high ABV beers a day, or a fifth and a six pack of regular beer.

You can clean cast iron with water as long as you wipe it down with oil and heat it up until everything evaporates/burns off of it right after.

Specifically you're turning the oil into a long-grain polymer, similar to a plastic that provides both corrosion resistance and imparts some non-stick qualities to the cookware.

I have a cousin who's straight up said she thinks there should never be a woman president because women are (in her words) pussies. She has nothing but withering contempt for women that show emotion make decisions based off of feelings.

I do hope someone points out to gun girl that if women are too emotional to vote well then they're far too emotional to carry firearms so the all male electoral needs to take that away from her as well.

Edit: should have read the thread closer I see several people mention that last part.

Well, women are responsible for pretty much all mass shootings and domestic terrorism so it's a good point

Wait, poo poo I think I got that wrong.

We've currently had over 6 times as many COVID-19 deaths as swine flu, and rising.

I wasn't in a position to read the news or even be on the internet often, or be informed on politics very much for the first couple years of the Trump presidency.

I learned @realDonalTrump was not a parody account during the Ukraine scandal last year, for 3 years I thought "there's no way he could be that loving stupid" because of tweets like this.

Doesn't pretty much every car on the road have an effective top speed of 120 because that's when regular use, off the rack tires start exploding?

That might be the speed rating of some tires, but they do not "start exploding"

E: the tires on my Nissan Leaf are rated "H" or 130mph (pretty sure this is the most common speed rating) the stack of Sumitomos for my Mustang are rated "Z" for over 149mph, most modern performance cars should come with a similar rating.

There is of course a generous engineering margin on any of these ratings.

This is super illegal and if anyone reading this is ever in a position where this happens, file a claim with the department of labor. Wage theft is one of those things where they absolutely come down hard.

More importantly, Gordon Ramsey finds it disgusting!



For real though, I've been comped a few meals, restaurants I worked to build, a couple small jobs we did work-trade for, wire something up and get your wage in free food, a couple people have bought me a meal because I'm eating lunch in uniform.

I always leave a tip equal to my meal amount, I couldn't imagine my rage if I learned the owner tried to take a piece of that.

European model of "pay your staff a living wage" and then maybe you throw a few pounds/euro/kroner as a thank you for exceptional service is an objectively superior model.

I went to see the Wicked musical and they made the one black character in the book white so no one watching it would have to suffer the trauma of seeing a white (green) woman in love with a black man.

It was... incredibly loving bad, all around.

Doesn't Theater just generally cast based on voice without regard to race though? So just because the actor's white doesn't mean the character's been white washed?

That tweet is awful.

Yeah, I guess it's way more important to cast black actors as explicitly black characters, for the usual reason.

Wicked seemed fine to me when I saw it last year, I went at my Girlfriend's behest and I'm not super familiar with the show/book/fandom though.

A few years back I had a couple dudes smash my car window, and start rifling through my car, I chased them away down the street, nice sunny afternoon, so the neighborhood was all out on their porches, called the cops pretty quick.

The dudes just kinda ambled down the street, kicking and punching cars, knocking over trashcans, shouting, etc.

Cops show up, dudes start yelling at them, a second cruiser shows up, with an obviously older/higher ranking cop, first two cops (one black and one white cop, and one black and one white dude, fwiw) engage the dudes, start talking to them, get both of them to sit down in the grass, cuff the white dude, ambulance shows up to take the black dude away, no cuffs but with a cop riding along.

Cops explain to us dudes got bounced from the nearby shelter for being wasted, probably causing a ruckus so they'll get a night in jail, food etc. they're booking the white dude, but the black dude is having a rough time so he's going to the hospital for psychiatric evaluation.

Seems to me about how law enforcement should work, the cops certainly didn't need to be armed, and at no point did they yell, much less use violence, they basically acted as social workers responding to a 911 call.

I know my anecdote isn't typical, and is horribly damming of a system that needs to be rectified, but having an unarmed police force that only gets to get dressed up and play army man when the next psycho right winger holes himself up in a bell tower with a cache of rifles seems like a good first step.

It's just absolutely astounding that apparently people were RATM fans and didn't realize their music was political.

I'm in a Facebook fan group for Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness, people get tattoos of his face and poo poo and post them there, in their most famous live show, Mike goes on a rant about Hitler shoving a cyanide capsule up his rear end and blowing his brains out, and encourages all white supremacists to "follow (their) leader".

A couple years ago he jumped into a crowd and punched out a MAGA CHUD who was heckling him about politics.

Several dozen old CHUDS in the group rage quit with posts about "WHY DOES HE HAVE TO BE POLITICAL JUST MAKE MUSIC RAGGGHHHH!"

What I'm saying is CHUDS aren't very introspective about what music they listen to, look at George W fuckin' Bush using CCRs "Fortunate Son" at campaign rallies, a song that literally descrubes how evil and lovely him and his dad are.

E: also I could see people interpreting RATM as fighting against the evil democrats trying to tax you, and framing their ideology that way.
