Jamie Oliver's face when the kids still want to eat the awful processed nuggets is one of my favourite things. Human contrariness <3
Apparently Flu Camp is really worth it, but only because they give you food, bed, entertainment, AND more money than you can get working a part-time min wage job for the same time period. My friend who did it said he wouldn’t do it again for any less money, and wouldn’t do similar schemes, but highly recommended Flu Camp itself, and went on holiday with the proceeds.
@meowmix There's a guy in my city who throws boxes of incense sticks at people. If you catch it, it is therefore in your hands and he will not take it back, so you have to either buy it or drop it on the floor. So aggressive!
@deepomega My thoughts exactly.
@perrywink ...Sticky? Seem like a great idea before you have them and not so much right after? Constantly paraded by the media as something everyone should be striving for at all times?
@selenana Oh yeah, cooling time takes a while, but you can make frosting while the cake's in the oven, or do cupcakes in two batches to cut wasted time and buy the love of all your friends through baked goods.
Depending on the recipe and size, it takes a little over half an hour to bake a cake from scratch.
@guenna77 Good point -my degree program was very much about learning to evaluate information from various sources, do efficient research, construct a watertight argument and spot a patchy one. The actual facts we learned and practiced our skills with mattered much less than the skillset and way of thinking. I'd argue that these skills are useful in all walks of life.
Re biking to bars, I was under the impression that it was no more legal to bike drunk than to drive drunk. Does it vary by area?
@Kirsten Hey@twitter Ikr. I can completely sympathise with his frustration and how unfair it is that the more ill you are, the more important it is to advocate for yourself and the less able you'll likely be to do so, but breathing a huge sigh of relief for the NHS. It's absolutely not perfect but it's served me and my family well, and really gone above and beyond in some cases.
