Every wonder about the people who have a great skill for something, but live in the wrong time period to find out.
For instance maybe pig has amazing skill to be a blacksmith, or a jouster. I also feel bad for someone who would have been an amazing computer programmer, but was born 200 years ago.

Boston is having for lease amount of snow this year. I like to believe the lack of snow this year is related to the fact that I bought a new heavy duty snow blower this past October.
They are also good for people with limited refrigerator space. When we host big family events these come in handy. You can lay them down, and you can stack them, and you can store them on an uneven surface.
There is some weird psychology/science going on:
Large portions make people feel like they are getting a better deal, strangely the fact that it might cost more usually goes unnoticed.
But…Cooking in larger portions doesn’t increase price to make proportionally. IE if you give a person a portion that is 10% bigger, it might only cost 5% more to make.
If you are making things were you can cook multiple people’s food in the same batch (pasta, soup etc) things get even cheaper. If you limit the choices then you can get more people ordering the same thing. Make the portions bigger, attracts more customers, means cooking more at once, means cost of cooking gets cheaper. Bigger profit, or lower costs.
So basically if your bigger portions bring in more people, you can make the same food cheaper, and sell it for the same price. There was a restaurant I use to go to all the time in college. It sells several types pastas, and has several types of sauces. They have 2 large pots for each pasta, and 2 large pots for each sauce. The second pot doesn’t start cooking until the first pot is almost empty. When you order they mix your pasta and your sauce, it would come out quickly, it tasted great, it was cheap, and I would have enough left over for 2 or 3 extra meals. They used to have a competition, that if you ate their entire plate of spaghetti in one sitting (this was their regular portion size) your table’s food was free (only 4 per table though), and you one a free shirt saying that you ate the plate (and your picture on their wall). I usually went for their ravioli, but I once ordered the spaghetti. I think I ate the left overs for dinner every night for a week.
But I digress. After restaurants start doing bigger and bigger potions, their competitors will fight back. So the competitors portions get bigger, and cheaper. After a while the original restaurants portions won’t seem that big, so they make them bigger, and cheaper, and on and on it goes…
It might appear lost, until someone is looking for ammo to prove you are a horrible person.
Growing up we had a dog. When she was a puppy, she used to walk on her hind legs more often than on all fours.
For me they took a while to stretch to fit my feet properly. My only problem now is they are often a bit too warm for me.
I did get usb heated smores for my step daughter. She likes them, though she tends to forget to recharge them
I see no problems here. I have “killer bunny” (Monty Python) slippers at work. I often wear them when me feet are hurting. I really like to wear them when I interview prospective new developers to see if I get a reaction
I once went to a panel where two artist from Spider-Man where talking. Naturally when they were taking questions they were asked who would win in a fight Spider-Man or Superman, and in almost complete sync they responded “depending writing it”. Which is always going be the answer.
Ironically, I had a complete different thought, because as a general rule, when Spider-Man meets someone new, he always loses, badly. Then he limps away does research and wins in a rematch (sometimes it takes several rematches). Basically I figure he would lose to Superman, survive, then he mix kryptonite into his webbing, and win the rematch.
