Cooking and Dining

Don't get ride of the stone - place it on the very bottom of your oven under the lowest rack and use it as a heat sink. Or you could reverse that and use the steel as the sink and continue cooking on the stone. (That's how the Pizza Kettle works; the 20-lb steel forms the top of the cooking chamber,...

Is that the first time "MRE" and "relatively delicious" have been used in the same sentence?

Just started Detroit Become Human. I love this kind of game.
This was the only actual game I worked on while at PlayStation (I supported the streaming services). I cleared some of the in-game art assets for trademark/copyright conflict.

The Mandalorian, which uses state of the art everything, does not have Atmos audio. I guess Disney's budget was a few dollars short. I thought Se2 was supposed to roll out Atmos support?

The legality is a gray area. Fair Use comes into play, but with the transfer to MP4, that gets a little messy.

A more properly pedantic gripe about lightsabers would be why people fighting with them act like the hits have weight behind them. It's light photons, there's no weight.

It might depend on where you live. (In CA, you can't put an expiration date on a gift card/certificate, but I'm not sure if that applies to redemption codes.) Issuance of those codes could be considered an inducement to purchase, so I would hope they remain valid. Otherwise that's sort of bait-and-s...

interesting....... The big 3 defensive stats are takeaways, sacks, and points allowed; those numbers generally tell the story of a defense most accurately. No team has ever finished a season ranked #1 in all three, but three teams have finished #1 in two: Legion of Boom, '00 Ratbirds, '85 Bears. The...

Yup, I remember you saying that. :thumb: When UBL was tagged, there was a glut of documentaries on History Channel and NatGeo and whatnot about SEALs and spec ops and whatnot, and he was always on those, along with the same maybe half dozen operators (Ryan Zinke was one iirc).

Also, the failed Iran hostage rescue mission lead to the establishment of SEAL Team Six, and the ultimate reformation of the US special operations community in the structure we know today. So that's neat.

I would rather they ditched the PAT altogether and replaced it with something like a conversion try from the 2 that would give you extra 1 point, and the option of a conversion try from the 5 or 8 or something that would give you 2. Maybe even tinker with the manpower on the field for the regular tr...
