  • General Tomfoolery

    These kinds of threads always remind me of when I worked at KFC when they introduced the "famous bowl", this is the bowl that's mashed potatoes, corn, popcorn chicken, cheese, and either gravy or barbecue sauce all mashed together into this kind of pig slop substance. When they told us what this thing was, we were all like well this looks disgusting and nobody will ever buy this, especially the barbecue sauce version. People went NUTS for this shit, they would come in and order them 5-10 at a time. People would come in and get one of each just for themselves. It ended up being the fastest selling menu item of all time at least during the two year stretch I worked there. I feel like they missed an opportunity to introduce an actual trough filled with it you could tie your kids to at parties but they didn't listen to my marketing ideas.
  • Coronavirus / COVID-19

    Remember back when we had a politics thread, it was titled "U.S. Politics Vol. 7: A Dream of 2020."  

    Oh how dreadfully naive we were.  

    I remember when we thought 2020 was going to be a shitshow cause of the election, and we haven't even gotten to that yet. We'll see how long 2020 can hold the shittiest year of our lifetimes times belt, it's going to have some competition with a potential covid rematch in 2021 and the climate crisis years we have coming up. Here in northern California we're about to enter the triple threat period of pandemic + climate crisis + capitalism with pandemic season overlapping wildfire season while our power company prepares to shut our power off for days to weeks at a time because they spent all their money managing stocks and buying out regulatory boards over the last few decades and their entire infrastructure is a crumbling fire hazard. Fun times ahead.
  • Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy Developing ‘Fallout’ series for Amazon

    I wonder what the tone of this will be. If it takes itself Westworld level serious this is going to be a drag of a show. I'm struggling to imagine a show that captures what works about Fallout. The goofy nonsense and satire is key to the whole vibe of the games but the stories involve a lot of despair and death, I would have thought more Paul Verhoeven or Taika Waititi than the Westworld people.

    Can this get hi-jacked into a Syrup VS Jelly thread?  @Chinaski ?

    Syrup vs jelly for what? I've never in my life had a decision between syrup and jelly present itself. If this is specifically about eating ass, then you would obviously not want jelly unless you want to just watch chunks of jelly roll off someones ass onto the floor. It barely even spreads on bread. If you are into that ass jelly plinko life then you wouldn't  be considering syrup.
  • Eating Their Own. And their $$$

    Why are there so many people who feel like they're owed a "debate" as if anyone with a platform wants to spend their entire day arguing with every jabrony in their mentions quoting logical facilities off of Wikipedia
