    The Fast Food Thread

    My rant is not at your post, it was just triggered by it. Those little fucking things are not human food. Never once has a "pink shrimp" (aka "salad shrimp") ever been deveined. Lets be clear. Deveining refers to removal of the intestine, which is a long tube packed full of shit. Shrimp are...

    I can't keep any interest in a mystery box show when right away in ep 1 they reveal that much or all of it is taking place in someones head. Lost had the good sense to wait til the final episode to reveal it was all just lol you were in purgatory. When you strongly hint in ep 1 that its some...

    A lot of that matches with conventional wisdom I've read. You may be right; certainly you're closer to the consensus viewpoint. I've come to doubt that markets are as driven by external events, or as rational, as many market watchers write about. But whatever the case, I'm not waiting for a...

    Yes. We are in a downward trough pretty much all year. Our next stop should be around 370. The great thing about investing though is there is no need to argue about it, and can just place our bets instead. Bear stuff has been making money all year. I don't think its done yet. Look how long...

    Whats rustling your jimmies?

    And thats what I'm getting at. When some bitch tries to tell you something that didnt happen, or happened a different way then she remembered, and you correct her, now all of a sudden you're the bad guy for "gaslighting"her. Fuck the phrase and anyone who uses it unironically.

    Whats rustling your jimmies?

    I mean, you're using it in a context where it could make sense to have the term used. I am not involved in many domestic abuse situations so I cant speak to how often its used in that context. What I know for damn sure is approximately half the women I know use it on a damn near daily basis...

    Disney+ Streaming Service

    Anyone know a way to hide or block a certain show on Disney+? (for kids accounts of course) I get the arguments for doing other things in response to their grooming efforts, but thats my specific question.

    Gaslighting. This fucking word. What it means is "you're telling me I'm wrong and I don't like that. So I'm gonna make up a fucking dumbass word for telling me I'm wrong, so you're the bad guy now cause youre GASLIGHTING ME" No, bitch, you're just wrong. And also apparently fucking crazy but...

    amazon support & refunds are amazing. It must be a huge cost on their balance sheet but I have to admit it makes me a lot more likely to buy from Amazon than anyone else selling the item. Its like ok I can choose between free shipping and absolutely guaranteed no hassle refunds just cause I ask...

    You seem to have a bearish outlook in general (which I share), don't your investments reflect that? I'm not talking shit here; but genuinely, there is money to be made on bearish positions, I've done well this year and I'm a complete idiot. Why not invest in a way that reflects your...

    Absolutely, fuck those things. EXCEPT, they do have one redeeming feature. When the cover art was done by some mongoloid who doesnt know what feet or hands look like but must have been related to the author and everybody in the family always talked about how good of an artist he was but now the...

    Leftists weird obsession with shifting A-vowel sounds rustles the fuck out of me. There are three ways to say A in the English language. Leftists always try to shift these as a tribal virtue signalling device. e.g. They'll say data so it rhymes with fat-a instead of fate-a. They'll say...

    Subway is truly the worst of all fast food, I don't think the runner up is even close. "Come on in and buy literally exactly the same kind of sandwich you could make at home without any cooking or special ingredients, but now, for 10x the price!"

    Speaking of which, aside from twitter, does anyone know a website for market news that actually updates on time? I was using marketwatch for economic calendar stuff cause I'm lazy and it shows up high on Google results so I clicked it. But those motherfuckers are always some random 10-30...

    Good show. I'm fucking sick of that bizarre alien looking black chick who gets cast in everything lately. I swear she's in 3 shows we're watching currently. The future chick. You know who I mean. My issue with her is this. If you cast the Rock in a role, at some point there will be dialogue...

    If cost is a concern, this, absolutely. For me its a Chefs knife, whats labeled "Petite Chef" in that image. I pretty much only use that for anything. Everything else is specialty purpose - bread knife, boning knives, etc. I'd be content with a good Chefs knife and whatever random crap for the...

    Didnt even see it as a controversial move honestly, big moves like this seem to reverse pretty often. But yes, there is a risk of loss. I do think a change in sentiment is coming. I think we are still in the confused period prior to that change, and I think there will be another leg down, or...

    Or you work in a shitty industry that forces shit like that and have decided to claim it as a badge of pride.
