    On far less serious matters, The ratio of eggs I've cracked to eggs I've exploded is holding at roughly 1:5. I'm rubbish at this. At least I got most of it into the bowl.

    tap it lightly on edge of bowl until you get it cracked then open it over the bowl with your fingers. If you get it cracked a little but not enough that you can easily finish the job with your fingers rotate the egg a little and tap it lightly some more to increase the crack size but again lightly enough that the shell isn't crumbling

    if you're tapping it hard enough that the shell actually crumbles and whites are coming out you're out of control and must turn in your egg-badge and egg-gun

    *edit*
    Also what skippy said. You don't want a sharp edge to crack it against, but most bowls are going to have a rounded enough edge that you should be ok with a light touch

    idk what you are doing

    but crack eggs on a flat surface not an edge hth

    I put a dent in it with a fork or a spoon until there are cracks along 50% of the circumference, then try to gently apply pressure to pry the two parts of the shell apart. 5/6ths of the time the shell just caves in entirely, and my hands get yolky.

    Fact One: Your voice bounces around and resonates in your head/sinuses and sounds wildly different to you than it does to the rest of the world. This is fact.

    Fact Two: You are a much harsher judge of your own voice than the rest of the world.

    Fact Three: You need to practice the sheet out of a cadence and get some speech training in if you want to do speaking gigs regardless.

    I just wanted to talk about soccer why does talking about soccer have to have all these other things about it

    Most successful podcasters and radio folks have "voices" that they affect purely for the radio/podcast. these voices are designed to be distinct, pleasing and easy to understand.

    If you want to talk about soccer, do so in a recording, listen to it back, figure out where you were flat, record again, see if you improved, and start honing your voice.

    This takes TIME.

    Unless you're me and then you just have an awesome voice automatically and people tell you on an annoyingly frequent basis that you should be in radio

    (not really, doing phone CS for the better part of a decade tends to hone your voice a bit and I legit don't think I could even access that tone intentionally it's just a reflex at this point)

    I have a presentation voice I shift into. It's calm, patient, and confident.

    wtf

    you hold the egg in your hand and sharply rap it against the edge of the bowl, not too hard, just enough to break the surface, then you press inward with your fingers while pulling it apart over the bowl with both hands

    usually a bit of collateral egg white gets out but that's the game you play

    Yeah this is pretty much what I do but a little more energetic depending on what kind of feeking I'm getting back from the person I'm talking to. Apparently it comes across as radio DJ/voiceoverish on occasion. Not really very similar to how I usually come across though I don't think. It really is just a thing I do unconsciously when in "helping a person mode" while at work.

    I'm the same way

    Like occasionally at work we have to listen to a call with our managers as performance review and the entire time I'm actively trying not to squirm in my seat out of sheer awkwardness.

    And it's always like "You did a really nice job on this call excellent use of tone to convey blah blah blah" and I smile and I nod and I thank my manager while in my head I am screaming "OH MY GOD KILL ME NOW"

    Tonight's game is a rematch between the Orcadia Nerdcrushaz and The Earworms!

    The first half goes by rather slowly as Geektossa flubs a kick-off yet again and Tom's Diabetes takes the ball! Tom's Diabetes makes his way through the pitch as the two sides crash against each other, and before long Gamebreaka is taken off the pitch due to a serious concussion as the Nurgle team smashes their way through the greenskins! The greenskins manage to gum up the pestigor's attempts to get the ball to the endzone, but before long Varag Lockerstuffa is knocked out. The greenskins do their best to give the Nurgle team some lumps, but the best they manage is to keep Tom's Diabetes from scoring for a while before another black orc, Varak Trilbysnatcha, is taken off the pitch due to an injury!

    Tom's Diabetes gets an opening and makes his way toward the endzone for a touchdown, but not before Libraryshouta gets a good hit in on Baritosis Girl, badly injuring the rotter. The Earworms kick off to the greenskins, but it's more of a formality than anything as only seconds remain before halftime. Still, the orcs line up and work off some aggression, knocking half the Nurgle team down. No injuries, but the Nerdcrushaz can't help but feel a little good about knocking a few rotters down, at least.

    The second half begins with the orcs lining up against the rotters while the blitzers move back to cage the ball handler. Unfortunately as Weedy Boy's called onto the pitch to fill in for one of his orc teammates, in the confusion he's sent to the line of scrimmage! Thankfully with a bit of quick thinking the black orcs make an opening for the little gobbo, knocking Toxic the Beast of Nurgle down! Weedy Boy races down to grab the ball as the blitzers cage him in. The Earworms advance on the gobbo, but Wedgiepulla knocks Tom's Diabetes down, badly hurting him and taking him off the pitch!

    The Earworms work to bust the cage up in short order, exposing Weedy Boy quickly. The little gobbo tries to toss the ball over to Wedgiepulla, but he fumbles the ball in a panic and gets knocked over by We Are The Chancroid! The rotters continue to advance over the greenskins, and Animekilla is given a serious concussion by an Earworm player in the chaos. Malaria Number 5 takes up the ball and runs it to the endzone, scoring another touchdown for the Earworms!

    The Earworms kick off, the ball soaring high and Weedy Boy scrambling under to catch it! He fumbles the ball, but Libraryshouta and Wedgiepulla immediately move to give him a little support as he scoops it up and moves on. As the three move up the pitch, It's A SARS World After All gives a good smack to Spectaclesnappa, knocking him out. Parovirus Rock Anthem rushes up on Weedy Boy and knocks him over, sending the ball to the ground. Wedgiepulla tries to give the gobbo some room to get up and grab the ball, but Malaria Number 5 has other plans and counters the orc's attempt to punch him, knocking him flat.

    Malaria Number 5 takes up the ball and heads for the endzone! Up in the centre of the field, the Earworms clump up on the remaining black orcs, handily keeping them occupied while the pestigor rushes down to the endzone for another touchdown for the Earworms, winning the match 3-0!

    I generally tell people when I see it because the mods will infract giant images something fierce.

    I'm just going to start using area-infractions.

    Just... just slam the entire page with a serious.

    Either people start checking their damned image sizes or we run out of forumers.

    Win-win.

    this is what happens when social pressure is used as the means to solve a technical problem

    I generally avoid posting any images while on a mobile or tablet OS, but out of curiosity have you ever tried to check the size of an image in a webpage on iOS or Android?

    Nope, sure haven't.

    I bet it's a real bitch.

    It is, hence why I don't even try. However iOS and Android are no longer just for phones. Thanks to the increasingly broad array of tablets and wearables it's getting to the point that someone could reasonably only use a web browser from a "mobile" OS. That's not an ignorable niche anymore and the percentage of people like that is increasing.

    On tablets it is not trivial to get the file size of an image and in a mobile browser it's actually pretty easy to underestimate how big a non-animated image is in the first place. Mobile browsers these days heavily auto-scale images down to fit. It does not require stupidity or carelessness for someone on a tablet to see an non-animated image that seems reasonable in file size (because their browser is scaling it) and be unable to check its actual size. Even if they are looking at the full size image there is not a linear relationship between pixel area and file size (for example in the JPEG format images with a lot of the color orange compress much less well than others).

    The post you were just complaining about, before it was edited out, looked like a quite reasonably sized photo. I would have guessed no more than 200K. As it happened the compression settings were such that it was over 700K. But if I wasn't on a PC (and using my extension, see sig) I would have no reasonable way of knowing that.

    I was talking to Icy about this a little while back and the method I used in the image checker extension in my sig should work just as well as a Vanilla plugin. I don't have the time to learn PHP and set up a test server running Vanilla but if this is really such a huge issue maybe someone should look into it.

    @RiemannLives‌
    I was only being half facetious when I said it's probably a bitch to check image sizes from a phone. Point is, it doesn't matter how hard it is. It doesn't matter if it is literally impossible to check image size from a phone, because the rule is based on the fact that lots of large images hammer the usability of these forums for a large number of users, and it doesn't hammer it less just because it was hard for you to follow the rule.

    There is a very easy way for you to never ever break the rule. It is: don't post images. If you are going to post images without the consideration of checking the file size first, fine - but you run the risk of eating an infraction.

    A tech solution is actually on our exceptionally long list of Things We Want. But until then, the rule is there and it is unambiguous and I will shed zero tears for anyone who runs afoul of it.

    I feel you dogg.

    But eggs are much more resilient than you think they'd be. By tapping the egg on a dish or a glass the worst youre going to do is crack it all the way through.

    As long as you dont CRUSH The egg in your hand it is hard to over-crack an egg.
