Mildly Interesting

This is for strictly mildly interesting material. If it's too interesting, it doesn't belong. If it's not interesting, it doesn't belong.

This is obviously an objective criteria, so the mods are always right. Or maybe mildly right? Ahh.. what do we know?

Just post some stuff and don't spam.

When it's sunday evening and you aren't prepared for school tomorrow.

Just like in video games lol. It should also sell potions!

AI image recognition for age verification.

Famously 100% accurate. Hence why even humans who need to verify age look at the birth date on your driver's license.

I hate it here.

America: You can't have free health because that's socialism but you can replenish your Glock 9 stock because FURDUM!!!!

Well, an ability to buy stuff for a gun does not exclude the possibility to have an affordable healthcare. US does not have affordable one, but I live in a country with "free" healthcare and it is so shitty that I and my family need to go to private doctors anyway 90% of cases. We need to pay twice: one for the "free" healthcare in taxes and the second time at the private doctor. Admitedly, less fucked up than in US, but this still fucking sucks.

THIS. Sometimes, a silly vending machine in Alabama is just a vending machine in Alabama, not the summation of what you think is wrong with other peoples' politics.

That's a good deal on ice.

[–] [email protected] 12 points 1 week ago (2 children)

in what universe is 1.99 a good deal on ice, get some tap water and freeze it

[–] [email protected] 4 points 1 week ago (1 children)

Not all tap water is good to drink. Some people wells or some city water is bad.

Personally I only buy it if the power is out (to help pack the fridge and freezer) or road trips / camping. Where yes is could try to store a coolers worth of ice in my freezer but its just not worth it

[–] [email protected] 2 points 1 week ago

Thank you! I feel SEEN. ya leave nice fresh ice in the freezer long enough, it gets funky, especially if it's stored with other food.

[–] [email protected] 11 points 1 week ago (1 children)

My freezer is tiny. Check your freezer size privilege, man! ;)

[–] [email protected] 4 points 1 week ago (2 children)

well wouldn't you need a freezer to store that ice anyways if there is some left?

[–] [email protected] 5 points 1 week ago (1 children)

No, I'm American. Every drink is 64 oz and I need 5 kilos of ice for one batch of homebrew beer.

Are you cold crashing when you brew? I brew beer but haven't cold crashed a batch yet. Is there a difference in the taste?

[–] [email protected] 3 points 1 week ago

So far, I always cold crash to get the impurities/ carbohydrates to fall out of the solution and leave a less hazy wort. I like a gnarly trub in my kettle, before I start transferring to the ale pail/ bucket fermenter. So, I don't know what a beer would taste like without it. I've only brewed ales and lambics so far.

Welp, no place in the freezer, guess I'll need to have another margarita!

This is la via.

The US has moved another step towards being an actual video game

[–] [email protected] 8 points 1 week ago (1 children)

Nah, I wouldn't even play a video game this bad... but you're right, there's been a lot of "GTA Online energy" to it recently though.

[–] [email protected] 10 points 1 week ago

Nah, in GTA you have to buy your ammo from a store. This is Bioshock and Borderlands energy.

[–] [email protected] 4 points 1 week ago

Why worry about accuracy when you can just fire more bullets!?

[–] [email protected] 3 points 1 week ago

how they work? Probably like any other vending machine?

Bullets aren't all that volatile.
