  1. Tracking packages perplexes me as well, had a package shipped FedEx ground yesterday that the carrier is claiming will arrive Saturday. Shipper is about 5 hours west of me within the same state. Given the package was picked up late in the day yesterday i should actually receive it tomorrow as even going ground shipping is next day within the state (and most of South Carolina and Virginia too). At Least mine isn't medication.
  2. Things just working would violate the first law of thermodynamics, namely it would be a net decrease in entropy.
  3. Sparklers should be coming into stock in most stores relatively soon and burn hot enough to ignite thermite. Not going to mention how I know that aside from saying it was a controlled experiment.
  4. Sounds line he is allergic to something in the soaps. Is it just bars of soap that do this to him, or do other brands of liquid soap also present problems. I am allergic (as are my sister and mother) to the chemicals that are used to harden most brands of bar soaps. I can use pretty much any liquid soap and glycerin soaps as well as Lava brand soap (don't know how that last one doesn't give me greif).
  5. My Prusa Mini should ship in late August, I'm already planning out what to print first (after the self test and demo files, of course). I backed the humble bundle for dungeon tile stl files a year or so ago, no shortage of things to print there...
  6. Funnily enough, I had just locked in my order from the latest Skullsplitter Dice KS when i closed the backerkit window and saw this...
  7. Soeaking of work... We produce and ship air filters for use in homes and commercial properties (including at least one hospital's public spaces). Have gotten the machinery and materials necessary to produce surgical masks recently as well. That will ramp up in the next few weeks as the equipment is set up and people are hired/trained. We are all considered essential employees, so no time off for the foreseeable future (we did get off two hours early for Easter). The 5k new customers at the start of the month really didn't help with any rest a couple of weeks ago, it took almost a week to get fully caught up with all the semi-standard sized cuts that we actually keep in stock rather than making on a one off "Just in Time" basis. (Thankfully we keep several months worth of supply of filters on hand rather than having to wait for deliveries to produce bespoke items).
  8. Truth, just look up Graham Kerr on 'The Galloping Gourmet". Thankfully he got himself under control and went on to do several other shows.
  9. Given the correct enzyme and enough time the toilet paper hoarders can make moonshine out of it. Cellulose is pretty much just a polymerized chain of glucose molecules, so pretty simple to convert to ethanol (again, given the correct enzyme).
  10. Hydrogen peroxide is pretty good at killing most things, and is caustic enough to rip most organic (as in containing carbon, not farmed without pesticides) substances apart. It is widely used by hospital personnel to remove blood stains. I do not know about if it kills viruses (virii) or not, but it couldn't hurt to have some around (provided it is the standard 3% concentration and not the 50+% used in some rocket fuel mixtures).

  11. Classic plot twist is that their profits/membership fees go to support the orphanage that the founders grew up in. It may be cliché, but I still like it. You can always add to this with something of your own devising...
  12. I'm pretty sure that shirt should say "Bacon WAS my spirit animal" if for no other reason than it is gone now, because who can resist bacon. Even vegetarians can't resist it since they have "fakon" (as I've heard it called by several vegetarians) made from soy.
  13. I bought their $20 set of bits and bobs for rotary tools a couple years ago, used enough of them to justify the cost. I already had a name brand rotary tool and the few bits it came with so can't vouch for the tool itself.
  14. Looks like someone got tired halfway through preparing firewood and decided that they could make more money by selling it to hipsters.
