  1. It is also used to make pocket bibles, like the ones the the Gideon's give out to college students...
  2. The remastering is mostly to blame as it usually involves remixing the whole thing and most producers/mixers today have noticed that young people respond better to louder mixes where everything sounds like the instruments vomited into the recording deck. Everything gets lost in fuzz and there is no nuance to the music anymore. There have been studies of music done recently that used algorithms to analyze trends and they have conclusively shown that newer music is louder, and less distinct than older; so those of us who don't like most modern music are actually justified in saying "it all sounds the same, anyway"...
  3. So my family had maple sugar cured bacon for lunch yesterday and now, nearly 24 hours later, the whole house still smells like maple syrup. I'm not complaining, but it does make eating dill pickles rather interesting when the senses of taste and smell are so intertwined.
  4. Vanilla sugar is what you do after the homemade extract is all used up... gotta use the rest of the vanilla bean somehow.
  5. Cooking is art, only baking is chemistry...
  6. So Make: magazine's website does a tips of the week article every weekend and this week there is a tip about a company that makes women's "work pants" (which I am assuming are jeans and the like) that actually have usable pockets. The company name is Moxie and Moss if any of the ladies here would like to check it out. Just thought I'd share because I know that usable pockets aren't usually a standard feature of women's clothes.
  7. I may, one day, correct the typo in my username here (the k is supposed to be an l), but that is me and has been for the better part of 16 years (though I've not been here for 16 years, the name predates my knowledge of Reaper). If I'm playing Minecraft with my brother on our server and we don't want anyone to know who we are talking to we will refer to each other by our first names or simply call each other "bubba", though everyone else calls us by our usernames.
  8. I actually DID get things done today, I reset 16 feet of yogurt at a grocery store today. It was jam packed full and everything had to move, needless to say it took all day to do.
  9. Sounds like they're trying to raise a politician (at least looking at the current political climes in the US, I won't say anymore lest the buzzing start).
  10. Lidl and Aldi also have them.
  11. As others have said, not strange at all. I, for one, cannot stand the feeling of microfiber cloths; which makes my job interesting at times as they are the best way to clean and dust shelves in grocery stores.
  12. Did he microwave the superglue covered rubber bands again, oh wait that is immmotality, not disruption of the space-time continuum...
  13. Whomever made that meme forgot the "Must kill it" part. Addendum: any cat capable of roaring is incapable of purring, and science has just figured out why (though I don't remember where the article I read on it was so that I can share(possibly on the IFLS(abbreviated because full name is nsfw) Facebook page))
  14. Sounds like me, I was reading Stephen King and hard science fiction by the time I turned eight... I actually read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep before I even knew it had been made into a movie before my birth.
  15. I can't believe we all completely forgot about the time a cover version of a Nuclear Krill song hit number one on the charts... Under Pressure [Pepe] Pressure pushing down on me Pressing down on you No Krill ask for [Pepita] Under pressure That brings us boiling down Splits a swarm in two [Pepe] Puts ee-els on streets [Pepita] Um ba ba be Um ba ba be De day da Ee day da - that's okay [Pepe] It's the terror of knowing What the world is about Watching some good friends Screaming [Pepita] 'Let me out' Pray tomorrow gets me higher [Pepe] Pressure on ee-els ee-els on streets [Pepita] Day day de mm hm Da da da ba ba Okay Swimming around - splash my brains around sea floor These are the days it never rains but it pours Ee do ba be Ee da ba ba ba Um bo bo Be lap [Pepe] ee-els on streets [Pepita] ee da de da de [Pepe] ee-els on streets [Pepita] ee da de da de da de da [Pepe] It's the terror of knowing What this world is about Watching some good friends Screaming [Together]'Let me out' [Pepita] Pray tomorrow - gets me higher Higher High [Pepe] Pressure on ee-els ee-els on streets [Pepita] Turned away from it all like a blind krill Sat on a whale but it don't work [Pepe] Keep coming up with love But it's so slashed and torn [Pepita]: Why - why - why?
