    Also I find it way easier to avoid racism/bigotry/sexism/transphobia/homophobia/god-knows-what-else on IG than any other social media site (except the forums if you count them as social media).

    Not quite the same unfortunately. I use reddit for access to a bunch of articles on wonky topics that interest me. IG is a great vehicle for certain things (cat videos) but it doesn't scratch this particular itch.

    Perhaps if I just treat reddit like YouTube and religiously avoid the comments section...

    See, that's why you've gotta burn out the parts of your head that are interested in wonky topics. Simple.

    I can't argue with that logic.

    Not after burning out parts of my frontal lobe, anyway.

    Hmm, the pridewa website could use some work. Start time and place is the most important thing guys! Don't bury the lede!

    There's a PDF here. The parade actually begins moving at 8pm on the corner of William and James, but I'm going to try to arrive early to help the Greens assemble their float. I know other people may want to march with other contingents though.

    So uh, do you guys who came on that wine tour in Margaret River remember that particular place The Grove that had that old school relic of 'un pc' thought running the place who took specific pleasure in offending as many people as fast as possible in as horrible a manner as he could?

    Guess who went to a Gin Festival in Melbourne today to end up seeing an exhibitor booth selling liqueurs, which was what a coincidence from Margaret River, and then looked up to lock eyes face to face with that particular fellow again?

    Me, that's who.

    It was a little unexpected.

    First Greens meeting this coming Monday for the local group. Not sure what to expect. Hopefully they have a sense of purpose rather than just being a relatively unnecessary discussion where we go around in a circle telling each other how right we are about everything like some political groups can be.

    The senate enquiry into the government's bargaining framework has released its report today:
    Seige of attrition

    Hopefully we'll be able to break this wage freeze soon.

    I saw the first virtual reality arcade today. Optimus gaming in Balcatta. I love VR and I'm an early adopter so I went right in there to have a chat to them, they have a pretty great set up there. Going to try to talk my work into having the Christmas party there this year.

    If you're interested in VR but don't want to commit a whole bunch of money to getting one of the PC headsets, I reckon going down to try them out would be a pretty good way to see if it's for you.

    Holy crap

    Australian students recreate Martin Shkreli price-hike drug in school lab
    A group of Australian high school students have managed to recreate a life-saving drug that rose from US$13.50 to US$750 a tablet overnight after an unscrupulous price-hike by former hedge fund manager Martin Shkreli.

    The Sydney Grammar students reproduced the drug, Daraprim, used to treat a rare but deadly parasitic infection, in their high school laboratory with support from the University of Sydney and global members of the Open Source Malaria consortium.

    So how does the Australia thread eat a meat pie? I got my partner and I a nice pie each from the local bakery and where as I like a civilized human ate it as it. My partner, inhuman monster takes the top off, eats it, gets a spoon then eats the innards with a spoon with copious amounts of tomarter sauce then eats the rest of the pastry. Madness!!

    The top is the best part.

    Save it for last.

    eating a pie with a spoon does sound kinda weird to me, but that could depend on the pie

    like if it's a small mobile one I'll just eat it like a sammich

    if it's a big one on a plate I'll use a utensil (mostly for presentation's sake) but still go through the pie with every bite including the top and bottom and middle of it

    Top off, eating the innards and then eating the pastry is best.

    chrishallett83Cokebotle
  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    Depends on the availability of cutlery.
    - Top off, sauce in, eat innards with a fork
    - Sauce on top, smash pie with cutlery eat pieces
    - Sauce on top, feed entire thing directly into the gaping hole in my face
    Are all perfectly respectable methods of eating a pie.

    Unless it's a party pie.

    I've done top off, mix sauce through filling, slap top back on and then pick up and consume. Has the added benefit of cooling it down below scalding therms if it's a fresh one. If I'm out/about, it's chomp through in hand and add sauce as I go.

    Oh yeah party pies go straight in, you deal with the temperature as an after thought.

    I eat them holding them upside down.

    I find the pie integrity is more likely to be better eating them like that.

    It's just not the same unless the last two bites are just molten pie insides

    Depending on the pie, this can be a very important technique.
