Effects Of Online Public Shaming

Public shaming of individuals over minor or major social transgressions has grown into a massive component of internet discourse, with its share of supporters and detractors. The Onion takes a deep dive into the effects of online public shaming.
  • Creates dialogue between people who would otherwise not encounter certain memes.
  • Discourse between parties with opposing views has for the first time become somewhat tense.
  • 400% increase in usage of Notes app.
  • Encourages individuals to proactively delete their “Halloween 2008” album from Facebook.
  • Might get to meet Anderson Cooper!
  • Rampant awareness of racism, misogyny, and xenophobia.
  • Can’t even pose with carcass of endangered animal anymore without it being a big deal.
  • Meaningless petitions now digitized.
  • Occasionally makes people who should feel bad feel bad.
  • Turns us all into gods.

Thanks, Jeff's sending me a whole new carb kit for $13. I'm sure I'll screw something else up or it won't be the carburetor after all, but all my googling says it must be. So it must be.  I love mechanicking when there's no real downside to screwing it all up. Because in the time between realizing the mower wouldn't stay lit and breaking the piece, we borrowed a mower to get the job done and then bought a battery mower that I had my doubts about but has so far not run out of juice while doing a yard. So now I'm just trying to get the old mower to be a backup.

"21st Century Living"

You know, today I was asked only one question
One question all day
Do you know what that was?
"Do you want this supersized?"
Come to think of it, I'd like the whole fucking world supersized

Supersize guns
Supersize planes
Supersize satellites
Think about how many more channels you could get with supersized satellites

Supersize sales
How do you supersize a sale?
How about we supersize 3rd World debt relief?

Supersize love
Supersize honesty
Supersize government
Come to think of it
Actually, nah, let's not supersize the government

Supersize death
Can I have a supersized death?
I'd like to supersize a death with a Coke

You know what we need?
Some back-up singers, hook up like a little jingle

"It's all right, it's sooner or later" 

Kinda like that
Supersize the song
Really, if we supersize the record, we'll sell more records, it's a supersized record
That is, after all, our ambition

Fake lighting flashes over the skyline
A deer in your headlights
So gun it, gun it, gun it, gun it, gun it
We're singing songs about 21st century living
If hate's in your heart, man
You'll take what you're given

Ambition, ambition's a tricky thing
It's like riding a unicycle on a dental floss tightrope over a wilderness of razor blades
Ambition can backfire
Ambition means more
Ambition means faster
Ambition means better

I wonder if you can sup—
Can you supersize ambition?
Does that make you ambitious if you supersize ambition?
Around here, our ambition hurts more than it helps
Around here our ambition throws an non-perishable item in a donation bin at Christmas
And it pats itself on the fucking back because it thinks it's done something decent

"It's all right, it's sooner or later" 

Yeah, we're supersizing ambition
Make no mistake about it
Our ambition will televise the revolution
And it'll sell more fucking commercial spots than the Super Bowl, the Olympics, the World Series, and the Tragedy Du Jour
combined
We're supersizing
We're supersizing the record
'Cause we're ambitious

If hate's in your heart, man
You'll take what your given

A customer just came in and wants copies made of her old handwritten journal. Just to see how well it would photocopy, I slapped a page on the machine and her old book is just a 6x9 ruled paper like school notebook paper, not a fancy journal with acid-free paper etc. So anyway the copier picked up a faint ghost of the writing on the back of the sheet. Customer asked if we could prevent that by copying onto heavier paper.

With the ingredients thing, that's just it. If it takes 8 hours to make, lots of exotic ingredients that will go bad before I make it a second time, that makes it a good choice. I hate it when I go to a restaurant and there's nothing on the menu that's actually going to require any more prep and skill or inspiration than what I usually have at 5pm on a Tuesday. And since we had a kid stay with us for a while who showed us how to make some great taco sauce, salsa, stuff like that, even those things are becoming less exotic. His salsa is 6 or 8 roasted serranos, peeled and seeded, one roasted tomato, peeled and seeded, garlic and salt, grind in a molcajete and there y'go. Wow. Hot and great. Save it for a day and most of the heat will be gone.

 
We have five Mexican restaurants in Pete, but by far THE BEST Mexican food is the truck at the Farmers Market. It's not cheap. But it's a-mazing.

She came to the states by way of the river, with kids and husband in tow. The mayor at the time was delighted to have another Latina in town, and helped her get her papers in order. She started cooking at the Co-Op, and would sell out within an hour. Someone suggested she get a truck et voila! She's supporting her family and delighting the crap out of the local pasty people. I need to find out where she is in town during the week.

I have just discovered RP. What a genuine pleasure. And now, even better, the 'Forum'. As a Brit this is like  a whole new cultural gateway, primarily and gloriously American. Your comments are peppered with references, allusions, connections and assumptions - arcane, explicit and implicit that feels like one sitting in your living-room listening to a family conversation. Mildly creepy, as it almost seems voyeuristic but compelling uplifting. Kind regards, to you all. JWC

We have a taco bus here and it's fine but... if you're running a food truck, it can't just be good, it has to be worth the hassle. And cheap plays into it too... I'm not paying the same for tacos at a truck as I am for tacos at a place where someone brings me water and gives me a place to sit out of the weather. But then, I cook a lot, so convenience means less to me than it does to people who would never eat pizza if it weren't for pizzerias. Even when I ran a store selling $3 coffees, I would shake my head at the people who paid for it to go... because no cup of coffee is worth $3 if you're drinking it in your car. What half of that cost is paying for is a casual place to sit and drink coffee and read a magazine/blog without some wait staff needing to turn the table. So lining up at a taco truck for food to take home... makes no sense unless it's really better than what you make yourself AND any sit-down restaurant AND is cheap.
 
...altho the lamb sandwich I got in Kansas City in the middle of a good Westport pub crawl and ate on the sidewalk in the rain was worth every penny
