"Every American Waste 290 Pounds Of Food A Year"
False. Scared/terrorized into me as a child others were starving if I didn't finish the food on my plate. Oh have seconds, mr human disposal !
And I ate/eat too fast making me eat more food before my body says, "hey wft are you doing asshole?!"
I probably waste less than a 1 pound, absolutely and certainly less than 5 pounds.


Right, I was force-fed the same drivel (pun intended) as a child. That "I've gotta clean my plate" mentality is a tough nut to crack, especially when combined with the outside portions provided by most American meals.

But the article isn't about not finishing prepared foods, it's about throwing away unprepared "past date" foods. I almost never discard of any food I've purchased both because I don't like waste and I'm very frugal, but my partner is always just shoving things to the back of the fridge and forgetting about them.

Souls isn't ultra difficult. Something difficult requires mastery of precise timing and quick reactions (like arcade fighters). Souls games are actually fairly slow and only require knowledge of the game, world and mechanics to play well. The combat is more thoughtful than anything. Its reputation as a "hard" game comes more from the fact you can actually lose progress (XP/money, at least) if you die repeatedly.

Too many games now have basically no fail states; how anyone gets enjoyment from playing something you can literally beat with your eyes closed is beyond me. I think much of the popularity of battle royale games can be attributed to the fact that victory is particularly rewarding given the odds one is up against.

I don't mind seasons per se. It's "battle passes" that are the fucking problem.

Destiny 2 (a game which I paid for at release) has a tiny, pathetic free-to-play portion now with next to no content. You can buy the "standard edition". Then it has paid expansions. Then it has season passes. Then it has in-game microtransactions.

I don’t think micro center is center, looks to me like they’re leaning towards Nvidia
Typically, AMD graphics cards are more affordable but can require some modification or regular maintenance to keep working as intended. On the other hand, NVIDIA graphics cards function much like video game consoles and essentially work in a plug in play fashion.
The only differences I know is that you have to flush the electrons, replace the solder and repack the bearings every 3 months on AMD GPUs whereas Nvidia uses sealed bearings and permanent electrons/solder.

I try to flush my electrons one a month, and positrons once a year.

My GF and I have been watching this guy mrgstar321 on Youtube. He has a ton of playthroughs of Mortal Kombat games (including hacked mugen ones and even MK Mythologies).

He gets so enraged in his thick Australian accent when the AI gets cheeky (which happens all the time in MK). Very entertaining.

I don’t see the big concern. Photoshop already made pictures unreliable forms of evidence. Deepfakes just do the same to video. Any meaningful information needs to come from a reliable source and show a verifiable chain of custody.

Your EX can already photoshop you doing something embarrassing. This just moves the bar to the next technology.

Just think what it will do to the NFT industry!!!

Gaetz is not going to come out of the sex trafficking investigation looking well, IMO. The guy is a sleaze.

Matt Gaetz's ex-girlfriend to cooperate with federal authorities in sex trafficking investigation
https://www.cnn.com/2021/05/21/politics/gaetz-investigators-cooperation-ex-girlfriend/index.html
Basically everyone who knows anything is turning against the guy. Hard to see how he comes out unscathed.

An esteemed member of my state legislature (Ohio) is guilty of bribery and campaign finance violations. He took money from a power company to push a bill that gives said power company $1.3 billion of taxpayer funding.

He was later reelected. Even his own party is trying to get him out of office.

Yeah because installing drivers via a command line is a lot easier than clicking a .exe? I had a *massive* two-hour headache trying to install a wifi dongle driver onto an unconnected Linux box.

Broadcom?

Yeah, it was. Every "guide" for installing device drivers basically says "just open a terminal and type in sudo package install www.package.com/driver" or some such... which is kind of fucking hard to do when the device you are trying to install is a network adapter.

This is why you never buy Razer products. How much more anecdotal evidence do you need that they are absolute shit?

I've used a Sennheiser PC350 headset for almost ten years now. I would look into a Sennheiser Game Zero or Game One these days as far as value goes. They are only a little over $100. They are 3.5mm and higher impedance so you may want an amp, though I think they re-released it as 50ohm down from 150, so it might not be necessary.

...new standard team composition will be one tank, two dps, and two support heroes.

Well I'm glad Blizzard told me the "standard team composition" because for a minute there I thought I might have to actually decide team composition on my own with just my team. You know what Team Fortress 2 had over pretty much every shooter released since then? It was designed and continuously updated to be entertaining. I don't recall anyone I played with ever talking about "the meta" and yet somehow everyone playing always had a good time, day after day. I guess that all goes out the window with a "professional e-sport" title like Overwatch.

The seatruck is really lame. That’s a pretty universal sentiment. It’s slow, and once you actually start attaching units to it it gets stuck or hits shit all the time.

Paneer is literally the easiest cheese to make. You boil milk, add acid (I used white vinegar), and stir it. That's it. Separate the curds, rinse and drain, and compress for a while.

My masala is OK; I don't go so far as to grind my own spices, but I do obviously use fresh garlic and ginger and a lot of cilantro.

Oh and my preferred dish is makhani, but it's so rich I usually stick with tikka.

Most anyone that was unemployed at some point can also get the benefit if they make less than $100,000.

Experienced a substantial loss of income since February 29, 2020 with a total household income in 2020 at or below $99,000 for single filers and $198,000 for joint filers;

You just gotta send in your notice of termination/furlough letter from your employer and W2.
