Because, despite all the progress that has been made, there are a lot of people out there who just don't care that much about misogyny. It's not a big deal to them.

Haha I will! I tried to get it dry and the pan hot. Need more of both?!

Get it dry as you can with a kitchen towel, then sear at high temp in a skillet (I like cast iron) with a high smoke point far like avocado or ghee.

No idea what this is at all. Sam Esmail is enough to sell me on this, regardless. I would still prefer he focused on finishing Mr Robot first. Because God damn is that show amazing.

If you are interested, check out the podcast on which it is based. Here's the first episode if you want to give a listen. It's a serial thriller and it's pretty interesting.

What is this show about?

Believe it on not, it's actually based on the podcast "Homecoming," a fictional thriller podcast series. Oscar Isaac, David Cross, Catherine Keener and David Schwimmer were in it (it seems like Roberts is playing the Keener therapist role). It's about a therapist who works for a facility for returning veterans--a program that appears to be for helping them re-adjust, but there's much more to it. I'm interested to see if it works as a show--the podcast had the kind of creative use of sound and voice that you'd find in old time radio. Here's the first episode if you want to give a listen, it's short.

I was a fan of the game show on PBS when I was a kid; if this movie doesn't have a 12 year olds running around and putting light posts down on obscure locations on a floor map, I will consider this movie bullshit.

I always thought it was kind of bullshit that some kids would get South America (easy) while other kids got stuck with Africa (much harder).

Could you please not drag "rightwing thinktank" part of the header into reddit header? It's, like, a bias without any argumentation until one reads the article.

I'm confused--how is it biased? It is a right wing think tank. That's not a smear, it's just a fact. It's only a smear if you think "right wing" is a bad.

I can't take credit--the video was made by Recipe 30, I just converted it to a gif and reformatted the recipe to be easier to read. But you're right, they did a marvelous job with that shot.

I’ve never seen the term “full cream milk” before, sounds regional.

As far as I know it's said in Australia and UK, although I've also heard "full fat" in the UK so I don't know which is more common.

It was 108F in my neighborhood today and I temporarily have no refrigerator. Seeing this makes me so conflicted because I want it but I know in this weather it would be a miserable meal. Come October, I'll be making a bathtub of this stuff.

The advantage of slow cooker meals in the summer is you don’t need to heat up your kitchen by running the stove or oven. The slow cooker is pretty well insulated.

Apparently, they’re going to reboot it.. I hope they don’t mess it up.

The film reboot is one of the worst, most confusing films I've ever seen. As much as I loved watching the show as a kid, the show was pretty cheesy and the plots a bit goofy, but the movie was straight up bonkers.

Wait, really? Is it confirmed that it's going to happen? I know a few people talked about it, but I never heard it was confirmed.

I love The Avengers, but I absolutely NEVER want to see it rebooted. It was such a weird, campy show. It would have to be drastically changed to fit in with what people are looking for in television today. And, to me, only Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg could ever be John Steed and Emma Peel.

Emily Blunt could pull it off. I don't know who Steed would be, though, that's a tough call.

EDIT: Okay, I thought of someone--Paul Bettany.

Yeah I did, guess this counts as brigading? Sorry!

Technically we ban immediately for that. If you delete your comment right now, then it's all good. In the future, avoid doing that because you'll be banned from SRD if you do.

Assuming you're not in a situation where you know a person really well and often take turns paying for dinner, here are my thoughts:

There's an art to picking the right things off the menu when you're being treated. I agree it's not polite to get the priciest dishes. My personal approach is to look at the range of cost between lowest and highest entree and pick something that is below the mean cost of that range. Sounds weirdly anal, probably, but it's a heuristic that works well for me.

And if you're in a situation where the menu has no prices, my advice is to go for the trout (if you eat fish) and if you don't like fish, pick the vegetarian option.

43 points · 1 day ago

If someone takes you to a place with no prices on the menu, they don't really have much ground to complain about the bill. The whole if you have to ask the price, it's too expensive. The only place I've been with no prices was this fancy steak house with dry aged steaks. $350 for 2 steaks an app and 4 glasses of wine. Steaks were amazing, but I think I'll stick with a $25-30 steak at Texas Roadhouse.

It's an old-fashioned practice but it still persists in some places--the women get handed menus with no prices while the men get the menu with the prices. This has happened to me a couple of times when I was younger and was taken out to dinner by a friend's parents or by relatives. It's common for teens/children to be given menus without prices, as well. I'm not defending that practice as I think it's infantilizing, but I figured out a way to navigate it that I was comfortable with.

Some places, like Epicure in Paris, only give the price menu to the person who booked the reservation. Similarly, there are country club restaurants that run this way--the member gets the price menu, the guests don't. I've also been in that situation.

I'm buying a few things for a new house. We have new color schemes to work with, so I'm looking to get some new duvet covers, wall art, accent items, etc. Is there any kind of app that lets you search items for sale using a color wheel? I've noticed on apps like Houzz they give you general color categories, but it's hard to narrow down my options to a specific color (e.g. I'm looking for a bedspread that's around a peacock blue and I would like to refine my search to items that are closer to that shade, not just blue in general).

I'm kind of new to this, so I figured maybe there was an app or site that offered this and I just didn't know about it. Any tips?

What's sad is that underneath the dumb asshole, redpill-style fuckyouspeak, there's actually a point hiding in there, but he absolutely wraps it in such a shit package nobody would hear it.

Not really--home canning jellies and chutneys is a very simple thing to do as long as you follow some basic food safety rules, and OP said he had some experience doing it so I would assume it's not that insane of a goal. I make jam as gifts every year--it's cheap and easy and people love it (and haven't died from it, lol).

Oh no, don't change your plans!

Take a look at this site to get your basics down. Also, subscribe to r/canning because those people really know what they're doing.

Definitely do your homework with the pressure canning, because that can be a little trickier. Make sure you also get a canning funnel and jar lifter if you're doing the whole shebang--the jar lifter makes life a lot easier. This page also has some helpful tips.

Thanks <3 i definitely just subscribed to that subreddit. I was planning on doing some jellies with the water bath method, so I made sure the one I picked out on Amazon says it doubles as a water canner. I just bookmarked those websites too

If you're ever in a pinch you can also use a stock pot with a canning rack--works just fine.

I agree, you are right. I took a critical thinking course in college and it’s true that it takes awhile to develop especially if you’re new to it.

I think this cheat sheet could help foster that development of critical thinking skills though. It makes people think about things more in-depth, which in turn could potentially increase their overall critical thinking capabilities.

see more

When I was in high school there was a huge push towards a "critical thinking skills" emphasis in the curriculum. My 9th grade class did a block format with bio and English (sounds weird, but it was actually great) and they hammered the concepts to death. I'm glad they did, though, I think it helped me later on.

Also, these skills are necessary for really excelling at college entrance tests (at least some portions, such as the reading section of the SAT and the science and reading sections of the ACT).
