Having fragile food taking up a large footprint is Neanderthal level organizational skills. Better give some prime real estate to this 2" tall pallet of eggs instead of just putting them in a taller container. I'm sure you can't hear me over the din of banging those rocks together to get a spark to warm your chicken patty.
I have a shelf that's basically three, four inches tall next to a drawer that is reserved for eggs and yogurt. The real estate is there by design...and I don't have to go around handling eggs all the live long day...

That's cute. Do you live alone? That's two days worth of eggs.

Similar, then.

I guess I'll take my 18 eggs and put them on a deviled egg platter since that seems to be the theme. Eggs can only go in containers that have the requisite indentations to handle them.

I do eat a lot of eggs, but mostly because they're a good source of protein. 3-4 days a week I take two eggs and mix them with a half-cup of egg whites from a carton and scramble them with a bit of sliced salami. Good amount of protein for less than 300 calories. The other days I put peanut butter on an English muffin with a banana. Not as great, has over 500 calories.

I buy the 18ct eggs. Usually before they run out. So at a given time there are between 1-30 eggs in the fridge.

Yeah, no man can keep 50 eggs...

His egg basket theory makes more sense...I have max 12 eggs at a time...

Is this a fair compromise? Vertical stacking with individual footings for each egg?

I just always crack my eggs into an old OJ container so I can pour them out as needed

Replaced the battery in my dad’s Alienware laptop today, as the old one wasn’t charging. Got it back together and it’s still not charging. Dove into the issue and found that the ac adapter is showing as “unknown” in the BIOS. These **** cocksuckers at Dell require an OEM adapter to enable charging. So right now all it does is stay on ac power but not actually charge. Bought a new power jack, so I hope that resolves it, but seriously, get ****, Dell.

Source of the post That Apple level shenanigans.
Yep, that was my first thought. To make this even worse, it also throttles the CPU full-time, so right now it's running at around .8 GHz. Point eight.

It's trending on Twitter, too, because the photo is of a Ford, yet the alert says Chevy.

Desktop applications that do not respect the taskbar when it's at the top of the screen.

I don’t want to speak for him, but most controls are at the top of apps, so for the sake of efficiency, I could see it.

Portrait mode monitor people are worse, IMO.

He also might have a hidden taskbar, and depending on his common apps, it might be less annoying at the top of the screen so that it doesn't pop up over his app all the time...
