I’ll take it off for ya – along with the rest of the slice.
Carl is the embodiment of a fixed mindset.
Jason was entirely correct. The problem was that Peter put the decimals on the wrong end.
Not necessarily. When meat/poultry/fish is frozen, it’s done at extremely low temperatures to keep the ice crystals as small as possible and maintain the protein’s integrity when defrosted. That’s why it’s not recommended to freeze your own fresh-bought meat, or even to refreeze it after defrosting. Putting Han in carbonite took just a few seconds, so his flesh might have been preserved quite well. Using it as a method for full cryostasis may be another question entirely.
I agree, it is designed to perform with ridiculous futility. But the “rough as sandpaper” comparison eludes me.
Fun fact – even soft foods can break your teeth in the right circumstances. Years ago, my wife was eating a fresh tortilla. The compressive pressure of chewing on the dough pushed on a minor fault in her enamel of her molar and literally cracked it open!
Let’s use this on social media too!
We tried several and were too often underwhelmed by the value. Then we discovered HelloFresh has a sister company called EveryPlate. Instead of separating the items by individual meals, all the produce and ingredients come in one big box, with the proteins sandwiched in the ice packs. Shipping is the same as with all the other services, but the meals are half the price, satisfying in quantity, not too elaborate or exotic, and only take 30-45 minutes to prepare. Have some extra potatoes & carrots handy and you can easily upsize if needed, plus the recipes are very easy to “hack” if I want to adjust them to taste or prepare differently. Great overall when you’re too busy to meal plan but still want to avoid the crap in daily take-out, and genuinely costs less too.
Jan should install bidets. After we got ours, TP consumption went down by about 70%. Not to mention far fewer instances of post-throne itch.
Speaking only Spanish in my early years worked pretty well for me. Now people are often surprised when they learn that English is not my first language. My parents didn’t do it intentionally – they acclimated quickly enough but still spoke only Spanish at home for a while. But they were also not my only source of language. I had other sources (especially cartoons on TV) to expose me to English, so when school started I was already mostly bilingual. It took me another year or two to speak comfortably in English, but I understood it just fine. One funny side effect of the TV, though, was that cartoons don’t always speak in the most standard ways. This was first revealed when I got into an argument with my mom when looking at a turtle. I insisted that she was saying the name incorrectly, because I knew for a fact that Bugs Bunny had pronounced it “toy-tle.”
