  1. I don't know why you're worried. It worked out great for the National Socialist German Workers' Party.
  2. From my research, coronaviruses (including SARS, Covid-19, and the common cold) mutate slowly relative to their total genetic code because they're quite large as viruses go. So the typical mutations don't have much effect on the ability of your immune system to recognize and attack them. Which isn't to say that they won't mutate, just that they probably won't mutate quickly.
  3. And essentially everybody had a vehicle to evacuate in. Which is not the case in most of the world.
  4. One that we eat regularly (including leftovers for me for lunch today): Slice spicy sausage (use more than one type for more complex flavor) to a thickness of about 1/4" - 1/2" (6mm - 12mm). Slice bell peppers (again, use more than one type if available) and onion into strips. Sautee in oil and seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic, ....) until the structure of the onion starts to break down. Eat. It's quick and really easy to make and very tasty.
  5. I don't actually care that much about the underlying ... discussion. But at least in the US, one side is willing to assault kids if they don't wear the correct color and the other side isn't even heard from. I don't suffer bullies gracefully.
  6. Ah, yes. The wearing of the orange. @redambrosia has the right of it: baked potatoes, french fries, potato chips, potato pancakes, scrapple, hash browns, .... All the potatoes.
  7. How are you going to fill your swimming pool with only 48 liters of soda? I mean, that's probably not even enough to take a bath in. Geez.
  8. Do you have Interior Desecrations as well? (Here's the Institute page for those who don't, since the book is out of print.)
  9. Generally leftovers or frozen food in that case.
  10. I don't know, but if that's the case, predict more doom. OTOH, washing your car to make it rain doesn't work, so....
  11. Note that if you have a power outage or take too long on a warm day to get home, food can spoil before the date. Use-by dates are suggestions.They're also kept conservative both to reduce consumer complaints and to encourage early re-buys. For any sort of food, it's all about the smell, taste, and appearance, not the date on the label.
  12. The issue is that with a matte surface under the decal you can get "silvering", which is microscopic bubbles of air trapped between the decal and the surface. The gloss coat is much smoother and allows you to get the clear part of the decal to disappear (usually with the addition of something like Micro Set and/or Micro Sol). Then you can matte/flat coat over the whole thing and the decal won't look any where near as much like a waterslide decal on the surface.
  13. I hope it was worth it. Because White Castle would be a sad place to die for. Sucrose (table sugar) is a disaccharide composed of 50% Glucose and 50% Fructose. Note that the disaccharide is broken down into its component monosaccharides almost immediately in the body. HFCS (a mix of monosaccharides) is composed of about 45% Glucose and 55% Fructose (proportions vary, but that's typical for the HFCS used in sodas). In blind taste tests, there has been a slight preference for sucrose over both HFCS and honey (which are chemically quite similar to each other*). There is a problem with people "extending" honey with HFCS, which can only be detected by very sophisticated testing.
