  1. It is basically vodka infused with caraway. I don't know what that is, but it does not taste well with vodka.
  2. I see a lot of people describing similar problems here, so what do we do, and how far do we go? Caps on tuition fees/student housing prices, regulation against "predatory" banking luring people into debt, increase minimum wage, better job security for entry level, combat the idea that college/uni is essential, (I was recently looking into switching jobs, and I swear, you need a bachelor's degree to mop the floor at Burger King these days)... I had more examples when I was thinking about this yesterday, but now they've gone into hiding. Anyways, more people are working past retirement age, and automation is reducing the need for new hirings in many professions, with a lot more to come I think. Soon the only solution I see is either to create a shit-ton of makework-jobs to prevent mass unemployment, or go for a basic income thing, with the controversial redistribution of wealth that goes with it. For sure, young people have to become educated voters, as well as involving themselves in the political process (he said, hypocritically.)
  3. I've only tasted lutefisk once, 15 years ago, so forgive me if I'm hazy on the details, but what I remember most about it was its utter lack of flavor. There's a hint of the fish that it once was if you really look for it, but it tastes more like a damp rag that has been used to wipe fish leftovers from plates, then rinsed and wrung out. There's a mild, chemical aftertaste (like the smell of WD40, but not quite as strong) and the texture is that of slightly flaky jello. Often served with mustard on some lefse (a kind of potato-based tortilla), accompanied by aquavit, which is also disgusting. I've tasted both Vegemite and Marmite, neither impressed me much.
  4. Rothfuss XII: The Doors of Twitch

    And this is a grown man we're talking about here? I don't know whether to cringe or vomit.
  5. Goodkind 54: How to Revive a Dead Dick

    Moral celery, folks. Myshkin has it.
  6. Iron Fist [SPOILERS - after page 3]

    Almost every time Finn Jones is about to deliver a line, he scrunches up his face like someone's just spritzed him in the face with horse piss. Though to be fair, I pull the same face during every fight scene.
  7. Goodkind 54: How to Revive a Dead Dick

    So many salient WTF-moments. To pick on one would do a disservice to the rest. Thank you, Myshkin, awesome work.
  8. Something needs to happen WRT weight cutting, it's mental, and bad for everybody. Why not have three weigh-ins? Let's say the card is on Sunday. The fighters weigh in on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and forfeit 25 percent for missing once, 50 for twice, and you're scratched for missing all three (or W/E, maybe 15 percent per pound or something). An opponent can refuse if you miss twice, or even just the once if you're way over. If it's a title fight, both have to pass the Sat weigh-in for it to be valid - if the challenger misses Sat, the champ keeps the title regardless of outcome, and if the champ is over, 60 percent is docked automatically. This idea is probably full of holes, but something has to be done.
  9. Fox TV agrees to consider a FIREFLY reboot

    Summer's telepathic abilities have developed so much that she can make everyone see and hear a psychic projection-Wash?
  10. Movie trivia: Which movies contain these visuals?

    2. V for Vendetta. The flashback near the end, I think.
  11. Football: Reds Rising!!

    Ah, but was it windy on the day in question?
  12. A variation of the law is "Any sufficiently analyzed magic is indistinguishable from science."
  13. Clarke's third law: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
  14. Brooklyn Nine Nine [SPOILERS]

    Damn, captain Holt...
  15. Knight's Templar vrs Samurai

    I'm not an author, but I'm pretty sure the internet isn't what you might call a "safe space". Light ridicule is pretty much the best you can hope for most times. Now go punch those keys! Also, *you're.
