Remember when people started hoarding toilet paper like it was bullets? It's been a year but feels like it was yesterday.

Now we have paper, but we still don't have bullets. What do?

Also now I'm wondering if you could turn toilet paper into bullets. Wet it down, form some balls of about the right size, put it over some hilariously light mouse fart load.

I have a few friends who will happily eat dry ramen bricks, and I'm reasonably sure they haven't been to prison or grad school. It's not my preference, but it's not as bad as I'd expected.

Au-gratin potato mix out of the box, though. Looks like chips. Very definitely, 100%, does not taste like chips.

My friends little sister would do this and we're were so worried about her that we made their parents ask a doctor. Turns out she had some sodium deficiency and her body was craving salt. They got that all worked out and she stopped doing it.

Ramen doesn't go stale, that's a myth perpetrated by Big Ramen to get us to buy more. We all know that, but what you didn't know is Big Ramen doesn't need to try to trick me to get me to buy more ramen I'ma do that regardless.

soak the ramen until it starts to break down into starch goo... use toilet paper as base structure material.

Eventually I'll get used to having extra money but for now it just means I get even more ramen all at once, though eventually I will find and try like IDK kappa's butthole flavor ramen.

news: Greg Abbott announced that he's rolling back all Covid guidelines across Texas, including capacity limits and the mask mandate effective immediately next Wednesday , then went to lunch at a crowded Mexican restaurant.

The answer is to order some high class bougie ramen. I know there have to be websites where you can get that really good poo poo they sell in Japan and Korea.

I order this stuff and it's pretty legit.

If I'm lazy, I have some Kikkoman ramen base concentrate. Toss it in a pot with water, toss in noodles, and fry up some green onions + mushrooms. I usually cook a batch of protein (my go-to cheap one is thin-sliced top round steak) at the beginning of the weak. All told it takes maybe 15 min to make a bowl of decent ramen.

Sometimes I'll get fancy and make a tare or my own broth or something but man, it's not so much better that it's worth the effort.

It was nice so I went outside, and I took the cat with. This time went a lot better than the last. At first he was just laying around, almost sulking. Then he decided he wanted to check out all the smells and started walking around, slowly at first, not going much further than the yard. After about ten minutes it was like walking a drunk, willful dog, but we were walking. And we had to go back, because I could hear his sister bawling her heart out from a good fifty feet away through a brick wall.

And then he didn't want to go back in.

Curiously, when they saw each other by the window at the door, the cat footballed under my arm, there was a little angry-cat noise. Not much. Just enough that I noticed. It went away as soon as I brought him in and put him down.

Thread Question!

As most of you know, I run the "Grandpa Emails" thread where we laugh at the Gun Industry spam email we all get on a daily basis. Here it is -

https://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3945740

I also get pistol and concealed carry gun magazines. These are loving loaded with loving level poo poo of all sorts. I've thought about doing a thread about gun magazines and/or gun advertisements. The main goal is humor, but as I've seen with the Grandpa Emails the past few months tinged them all with politics.

Would you fine folks like a separate thread for Gun Mag/Gun Advertisement bullshit? Or would it be better served rolled into the Grandpa Thread?

Motherfuck Abbott. I still haven't gotten the vaccine and was intentionally holding off despite having an actual congenital heart defect, because my risk of infection is low and I wanted to let people who legitimately are higher risk get it first. Finally signed up yesterday.

Now I will legitimately tell anyone to just sign up and lie, Texas is officially shirking it's duty to protect citizens and should no longer hold the authority to determine who is or isn't eligible for the vaccine as a result.

Hell, even if you are not in Texas just sign up and lie. I might get banned or probed for this but for the love of god, if ANYONE has a chance to get the shot, jut get the loving thing. I jumped the line and just got my 2nd shot yesterday. I am neither rich nor do I have political clout, I just know someone who was able to hook me up with a leftover dose.

Unless you are using your huge amount of money and political influence to get it, I just don't see an ethical dilemma there. There are not wrong people to vaccinate, we just need as many shots in as many arms as possible. And if you are being choosy about who you vaccinate, vaccinating old fuckers who frankly no longer have careers, or friends and family members they are going to be spreading it to is really stupid. If you are over 70 then you should be able to sit the gently caress down and wait at home while the rest of us that have kids and jobs that we need to sustain in order to live should be able to get vaccinated.

My wife is a classroom teacher and was forced back to work with a bunch of middle schoolers in a building that was, just in the last year pre-pandemic, intentionally built too small because they believe that just to the north of one of the fastest growing cities pre-pandemic we would see the demographic bubble pass and have excess capacity. And they skipped making the windows open to save money. Luckily, down here in Oregon they decided to let teachers get vaccinated, but supposedly you can still spread it when vaccinated and I have a bunch of high risk conditions. So when I had a chance to get a shot, it was a no brainer. We weren't being left with an option to protect ourselves otherwise. We have 2 kids so it's not like one of us was going to move out.

How do you even find out if the shots are available in your area? I haven't seen or heard of anything here.

All I know is the vaccine production pipeline has put a huge dent in other injectable prescription production, so that's fun and good and not at all frustrating

Well, I knew someone. But there have been other people that literally find out when a clinic is happening and wait outside to see if there are leftover doses. Find out the verification and screening process for your state. if they don't verify and it's possible for someone your age to get the shot, just lie. It's probably a crime but the government caused this to become a crisis when it didn't have to be so it's up to your own sense of justice if it is right or wrong.

Edit: I got the Moderna shot and both times it has left me feeling pretty sick the next day and the injection site pain is real. I thought it would be like the flu vaccine and it is very much not anything like that. Like, I won't let my kids touch my arm, and I took today off work between the stomach upset, fatigue, headache, etc. The injection site pain was surprising even though they tell you that you might have a sore arm because duh, of course, you're expecting a bruise from the injection. It is probably the thinnest needle I have ever been stuck with and I thought it couldn't hurt that bud, but holy poo poo my bod's inflammatory response to it has been something else. My mom on the other hand just got her first shot and has felt no side effects.
