    Bitches be like "looking for someone to binge watch Rick and Morty with."
    I can't sit still long enough to binge anything besides drugs and alcohol.

    Very offtopic, but why do cheap electric heaters have the worst thermostats in the world? Yes the cheap ones I can forgive, but say a more expensive one, like the dimplex glofanthe thermostat is in the top, right by the control panel. Obviously when the call for heat is up, the heater shuts off, and the residual heat from the heating elements causes the heater to think the room is very hot, and thus it quickly gets cold in the room again, and you have to hope that it will cool down again soon, or adjust the setting again to get it to kick on, and the fan then runs.

    Silly design. I have a vintage phillips fan heater which has the fan always running (yay but when cold drafts not good) and the thermostat is next to the intake so is always accurate, but a bi-metallic thermostat from the 1970s is not going to hold temperature brilliantly, and has a huge hysteris anyway.

    Anyway, heating the room with fan heaters isn't ideal, lots of electric use. So i want to get a personal heater, sounds like a cool idea 250w heater. why do they have thermostats for the room. The room will not heat up much with 250w and because its 250w it will be placed next to you, the user. Heating the room is not the goal.. Why not put a thermostat that is deliberately sensing the outgoing air stream, then it is a truly adjustable heater!
    OR use a thing called PTC heater that has been around for ages, and add a simple PWM DC fan on the back, granted it will be a bit more expensive say £30-40 but given its infinitely adjustable, and doesn't have ridiculous control (either all on or all off) it is well worth it i guess.

    For now, i better put on a jumper [/rant]

    I don't understand why talking to dogs is something people don't blink an eyelid at, yet talking to yourself is seen as weird. Sure, the dog is good at understanding human emotion, but it doesn't know your language, you are literally talking to yourself, with a creature that can't understand what you are saying. Yet even more confusingly, the people who talk to pigeons or cats are considered to be crazy. How did this standard come to exist?

    This is really good information for anyone who's worried about this whole COPPA shit going on with YouTube.

    FTC better be ready to crack their ass up more for enforcing this unfair BS on their creators, because YouTube seems to think solving the issue is punishing content creators with selecting whether their content is kid friendly and all that dumb shit that we shouldn't even need to worry about had YouTube not even broke the COPPA rule in the first place.

    My previous post was in jest. It is unsafe to binge drugs or alcohol.

    As usual, dinner on the last Thursday of November was filled with crazy conspiracy theorists. Always a fun time.

    Hey Reddit, my friend called my pet lizard ugly so I kidnapped his parents, chopped them into little pieces and mailed them back to him. AITA?

    Not a friend to your already lackluster throttle control skills though.
