Nope. The difference between the Melitta and Chemex cones is the Melitta cone supports the bottom of the filter and the Chemex is just open on the bottom. So the heat, hot water, and gravity work on that little seam and sometimes manage to get it to give. Folded, scored, or otherwise.
Have you thought about trying the metal reusable filters?
Yes, I've tried them. The paper filter coffee tastes a bit better. Also, I do not love the process of cleaning them out, though I suppose grounds rinsed down the drain is more environment friendly than throwing them out. One of these days maybe I'll start composting them again, but we have a very small garden.

Sorry about your Giants Blue. Even though I thought they definitely looked a lot better... that was a gut-punch of a loss.
I appreciate the sympathies. That really was horrible to watch. As I texted to a fellow fan after the game, the Giants had an indominable will to lose. They would not be denied.

Sir... one does not question El Presidente's coffee ability.... just run sir... RUN.
Haha, well, as I said, MrsBlue is the one with the vendetta against carafes. My own coffee disasters were more creative. Like when I had the maker with the timer that would grind and brew the coffee at a set time. I awoke to some disasters of biblical proportions.

Yeah, I'm planning to start over in Valheim when the update is released. I'm close to the end game now. I'll just backup my present save game (in case I want to finish it some day) and start over.

I did that recently in Astroneer. After completing it last year, I started over recently after some major updates, and it was fun playing it again.
Whenever I restart a game I am shocked by how long it takes to get back to where I was previously. I'm just like, lemme start over from scratch and avoid a few mistakes and I'll be back here at level 26 in no time. A week later I'm at level 15 wondering how I could have been so wrong.

The Chemex filters

Of course my brain read that as The Chexmix filters. I love me some Chex mix. 🀀

Ok... so I wasn't the only one

So do you like boil water, throw your ground beams in the top and then just pour the water in and toss the filter? (Sorry skimmed through the website)
Yup. Chemex and Melitta use the same pour-over drip system. Filter goes in the cone, grounds go in the filter, hot water poured over the grounds drips through into the carafe, and voila! Coffee.

The petition was started by Blizzplanet. They've been covering Blizzard since forever, so I felt it was a community interest post.

How many carafes have you gone through at this point?
No way of knowing for sure. Probably a half-dozen. And while I'm definitely responsible for a majority of the odd coffee disasters in the BlueTower over the years, MrsBlue is actually usually the one who ends up breaking carafes.

Could I get an explanation of this? Have no idea who RW is... (although, if after finding out, I realize I do know -- I won't be shocked. :D)
Given the (extremely grim) context, I think it's safe to say RW is Robin Williams.

You seem to interpret anyone disagreeing with one of your hot takes as flaming and personal attacks. Which is then followed by you engaging in flaming and personal attacks.

You are not in the right. I'm asking you to examine this pattern and rethink your approach.

You have not mentioned any long term side effects from when the boy was struck by the falling limb, here’s to hoping there are none.

He seems to have suffered no lasting effects. He's been for a few follow-up scans and they want to continue to monitor as he continues to grow out of caution. If it did effect his thinking it's pretty scary, as he is the smartest little kid you will ever meet. I've mentioned this before, but the twins are Sheldon and Missy from Young Sheldon. Some day he's going to be competing for Noble Prizes and she's going to be competing for gold medals.

Unless you count Russia's fall and the US "winning" the cold war then the plateau of the 90's, that was probably the US's Worldwide Empire's greatest moment and it has been struggling to maintain its chokehold iron grip ever since.

Your point is well taken. I was speaking more of that point when the various powers first finished grabbing up all available territories.

Ooops my bad.
Very sorry Blue, searched but totally missed it Shame
No worries. It's fine that other game news gets shared in the forums. But I do notice these are frequently items that have already appeared here (sometimes actually within the story that's being commented on!). Usually I ignore them, but sometimes I just want to make sure it's clear that something wasn't skipped or ignored.

i've always been curious (since watching House) if medical steroids and muscle steroids were the same thing. like if i got prescribed steroids for a flu, could i also use them to get swole?
Nope. The swole ones are the anabolic steroids. The kind the doctor prescribes for inflammation are corticosteroids.

That will be the last we hear of lugging wood pellet bags.
He'll now gleefully carry them downstairs and upstairs several times a day for the lolz.

Blue, quite frequently the pharmacist knows more about a medication or will take more time to explain it than the doctor. If you get a chance you might talk to one. But if you're really confused, and it sounds like the instructions are really confusing, I'd also hit up the doctor for more information.

PS
You know comments like "(I'm just talking around things I'm not allowed to discuss yet)" without context are maddening.
Is it about the site, is it about your new car, is it about the bird's nest, is it about your health,, is it about...πŸ‘Ί

Sorry, it's about my health. I'm trying to follow instructions not to discuss this right now. Unfortunately, I've been oversharing here for 25 years, so I'm not very adept at holding back at this point.

Nothing that's going on will be secret forever, so I'll explain all when the time arrives.
