That does all sound great! While we're on a slowcook/crockpot talk, I'll add this:

carnitas is one of my favorite meals, so I decided to try making it myself, w/ everything from scratch, and it came out unreal. I did the meat in the slowcooker (all kinds of spices, including some cinnamon sticks and an orange cut in half. Remove both when done cooking. It sounds weird, but it definitely adds to the flavor w/out tasting like orange and cinnamon). Once the meat is done, shred it up, and then just fry it up real quick in a pan/skillet with some oil. I also made all the salsa/pico de gallo, toppings and tortillas (and sides, like rice, beans, etc) homemade, but probably isnt necessary.

To be fair, in the video, Pelosi does ask "can we take our masks of quick just for a picture?" Happens right between the two images in this meme. Not saying it isn't hypocritical, but they did acknowledge it on video

Yea it's definitely worth it, and the pork even comes out great in a crockpot if you feel like making it an easy dinner. Can llterally just throw it all in, and decide whether you want to go w/ the kimchi or carrots for the topping (I like both, but the carrots were surprisingly good. I'd have to double check but i'm pretty sure it's literally just the raw shredded carrots with rice vinegar).

Man I got really into Korean BBQ a few years ago and started making some amazing Korean pulled pork sandwiches (I'd take a full day slowcooking the pork in all the barbecue and chili sauces, various spices, etc). It was always topped with either Kimchi, or... idk the name, but it was basically like shredded carrots in rice vinegar (sometimes both on top). Ugh, soooo good.

Shows how delusional they are. Even lefty publications and peer-reviewed articles have objectively shown that, ideologically, America has moved further and further left. As a result, we have a far-left that they think is moderate, and we have a right that is closer to center. This is why so many reasonable liberals no longer associate with the left anymore, why so many point out that JFK would be "right wing" today, why Trump himself had a number of centrist policies (and many even liberal) , and why the entire "right" today is not right at all. They only thing they point to are things like "racism and fascism" etc etc, which 1. Aren't "right" values anyway and can apply to ALL ideologies, and 2. aren't even remotely truthful to what today's right in America is today. Today, America's "right" would be best classified as classical liberalism (and wanting to "conserve" our constitution and values isn't even conservative, in the ideological sense. This is something "both sides" viewed as reasonable and noble until fairly recently). The left, however, are now full authoritarian, so maybe we should account for that... perhaps there really is a far-right, and they're it

no, you're correct. Coronaviruses have nothing to do with the flu, so comment is wrong in that sense, but the implication in the OP is correct (is PCR tests can't differentiate between coronaviruses and influenza, and HCQ and Ivermectin can take care of those "diagnosed" with covid, then it stands to reason that both of these antivirals are effective against both coronaviruses (common colds and covid) as well as influenza viruses

  1. We need investigations into election fraud.
  2. No way, because there's no proof there was election fraud!
  3. That's why we need investigations into election fraud.
  4. No, because the fact that there were no investigations into it proves that there was no election fraud.
  5. Return to step 1.

Someone more talented than me: put this into a meme, except use the recycling logo format to put each step into a circle with an arrow pointing to the next step, as the cycle repeats endlessly

So I should be denied medical treatment for an illness that prevents me from being able to get this vaccine? Fucking nazi. I was always really grateful that my family fled Germany and Europe, making my life and freedom's today possible. Now I'm starting to feel that same sense of duty for the future of my (eventual) kin, except there's really nowhere left to flee to. And bet your ass, this patriot historian who absolutely loves our history, traditions, values, the founding of this country, and everything it represents: I will fight for this land, the last bastion of freedom on planet Earth.

I got in an argument with my brother over this (I'm in health care, but he's a doctor). He's actually based in basically every other area, but... idk man, they got him with the vaccine (though he is at least rationale in the sense that he doesn't care if I get it or not, doesn't care if I'm around him, or anyone else unvaxxed, and does not want anything mandated, etc etc). Likely from being in two bubbles (healthcare, and NYC). But yea, was the only blowout argument we've been in since we were kids, and it was driving me nuts because he was acting like he knows better because he's a doctor, when just 2 weeks before that argument, I was asking him questions about my new insurance plan, and his exact response was "eyy, Idno, doctors aren't really trained to know anything about how insurance and billing works."

My grocery store’s self-checkout is exactly the same as the lanes with a human cashier (conveyor belt, bagging station, etc). I personally prefer it, since I’m way faster than any cashier, and everything gets bagged the way I want. Plus no small talk with a grumpy cashier who puts their grubby hands all over my food. Idk, maybe it’s because my first job was at a grocery store for a few years, but I trust myself far more than them

I_Used_to_be_me 1 point ago +1 / -0

Meh, I personally prefer self checkout. Maybe ideologically/out of principle I guess I shouldn’t, but technology removes jobs and creates new ones, it’s a tale old as time. The cotton gin, printing press, tractors... change is inevitable. If you prefer a human, go for it. But I can ring up, bag, and cash out my groceries twice as fast as any cashier/bagger, and know it’s all bagged the way I like it, all while not having to deal with some grumpy employee

Just anecdotal, but I keep getting sick anytime I'm around vaccinated people. I honestly was forcing myself not to believe it, because I'm just so done with all the fear and division (plus my mom's vaccinated), and didn't want it to be the case. But it had happened 4 times already, and last night I went out with some coworkers (because half of us have never even met each other), and lo and behold... sick again today. It's never terrible, but I usually get cold sweats (going back and forth between freezing and burning up), a sore throat, stuffy nose, lethargy, and usually a migraine - usually lasts about 3 days (I load up on vitamins, especially C, D, and Zinc). Starting Ivermectin today, because I'm pretty sure there's something going on w/ viral shedding, protein spikes, or something else that's causing me to get sick every single damn time I'm near them

ooh, weird (sarcasm) because I just got in an argument a couple days ago with somebody who said only handshake (or post-1/6) accounts can be trusted. "Anybody that diidn't delete their acct and make a new one after jan 6 is a moron and/or fed," I was told.

Lmao! Obviously not all new accts are, but (almost) all glowie accounts are def post 1/6. Never trust a post-1/6 acct w/out verifying

  1. Not to worship idols.
  2. Not to curse God.
  3. Not to commit murder.
  4. Not to commit adultery, bestiality, or sexual immorality.
  5. Not to steal.
  6. Not to eat flesh torn from a living animal.
  7. To establish courts of justice.

Can't find any legitimate information about their use in U.S. politics (other than "proclamation 5956,"/"education day," which, to paint as anything demonic or evil, is just blatant fearmongering, and has nothing to do w/ killing Christians by guillotine), but even if they are, I don't think anyone should have any trouble not breaking these laws lol

Edit - worth pointing out that the theory of "death by guillotine," etc etc was pushed by only a few particular bloggers, and was almost instantly debunked, and recanted by the authors. One such can be found below (with text copied, and link below it):

I had to come back and take a 2nd look at this post I made after my friend made a few good points about the Noahide Laws. Point one is that No Law passed to allow US Government to Kill anyone. His 2nd point was that this was a Law to make a new holiday to celebrate these Noahide Laws (H.J. Resolution 104, Public Law 102-14) and not to enact these laws. You look at the Laws yourself and tell me what you see is Bernie Wheater of Harvest Time Alert radio show correct? Now I may have gotten sucked into a dis-info campaign at first look but I am truly seeking the truth and don’t mean to mislead anyone that is not and was not my intention and if I have I do truly Repent of my mistake please forgive my bad judgment on this subject matter! Would I come back and take a second look and try to correct my mistakes and give credit to the people who question my work on this blog if I didn’t truly care to know the truth nothing but the truth so help me God?

Giving so much influence, power and recognition to somebody I've never heard of, doing something I don't care about, in a useless event on the other side of the world, financed by taxpayers' dollars is, at least in my opinion, the far better metaphor here

They weren't made to do anything - still a choice. I'm at an Ivy for grad school. Straight A's/4.0 GPA, done w/ every class and requirement with only my thesis left. Put everything on hold when covid broke out (had no choice, really - things were impossible w/ campus shut down) and grabbed a full time job, with the intention of finishing my thesis while working the job (once able). Fast forward to now, and they're requiring the vax. Not getting it. They can keep the worthless piece of paper, but I am pretty pissed about the time and money I wasted at this useless embarrassment of a "prestigious" academic institution.

edit - not gonna lie though; the only benefit of an ivy is networking and its name recognition. I already landed a job with the help of having the school's name, and being my program's journal's editor, etc etc, on my resume, so I guess it served its purpose. Still wish I had the funds to sue though. Getting a covid vax was not part of any contract or requirement when I accepted/enrolled

Um. This makes him look good, not bad. Just looks like he didn’t have a full picture the moment it happened and made a post that condemned violence (reasonable), then saw enough to know what actually happens and is now saying all the same shit we are

I_Used_to_be_me 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yeah. I called it before we even had our first case in the US. My mom still thinks I’m a wizard (yet listened to my brother on the vax since he’s a doctor even though I also work in the medical field and have been calling everything accurately since day 1). I told her, basically, “it’s gonna be a big deal, but I’m not concerned about the virus itself, I’m concerned about the panic and tyrannical governmental policies that will ensue.” Somehow, all she got out of that, was me saying “Covid will be a big deal here (meaning dangerous)”

Yeah I believe so. Don't remember it a ton, but I recall the first 20 minutes or so being completely new, and gave a whole backstory to the bald guy running the gameshow (and why he was doing it), so it felt like it changed the entire plot. Technically it gave the movie more purpose, but idk, it wasn't as good (imo) - the whole... not really having a point, just being about Malllrats just worked so well, since it was such a typical 90s cultural thing that we can all identify with. We alll knew mallrats like that, ya know?

I_Used_to_be_me 1 point ago +1 / -0

It just has a ton of different scenes to the point where it feels like a different movie. I remember for the first 20 mins or so, being like "wtf, it's like... the movie, but I don't remember any of this?" It's centered a lot more on that bald guy that hosts the gameshow and is the girlfriend's dad. Took about 20 minutes or so before it got to what I always remembered as the opening scene (Lee's character in his bedroom playing NHL 95 on sega w/ his girlfriend dumping him and climbing out the window)

Yeah he did lose a ton. Didn't it take him having a massive heart attack for him to finally lose weight, though? That was kind of my point about how he should have used the airline debacle as motivation to get healthier then... maybe could have avoided the health issues and near death experience
