>Seattle implements a $1.75 per ounce tax on sugary drinks
>Tax is designed to drop obesity in the city and increase revenue for other health programs
>A $16 24 pack of Gatorade is now $27
>People are now going outside the city to buy their drinks
>Beer/alcohol sales have also increased
>No evidence that taxing sugary drinks heavily has ever killed obesity (such as with Mexico)
>I live literally on the opposite end of the country from Seattle
>My local Publix is doing a buy-1-get-1-free on 8-packs of Powerade
>I walk out with 48 bottles of Powerade for about $14

So yesterday I got two ribeyes at a Whole Foods Market for around 16 bucks. 10oz, USDA choice, somewhat decent marbling, the whole shebang. I cooked one yesterday and I plan on cooking the other today. My problem though is that when I got the meat on the pan and searing, it started to shrink up and the edges lifted off the pan; creating all sorts of uneven cooking problems.
I don't know if it was because of the pan I was using, I don't have a proper cast iron and the pan I was using isn't entirely flat. I was gonna use a slightly bigger pan but one that was definitely more flat. I also don't know if the temperature on the stove might have played a role, I preheated the stove but I had it all the way up, not sure if I needed it on like a 6/7 out of 10 instead.
Any steak experts have any good ideas?

I watch streams of CNN on Youtube when doing other stuff because I like having some sort of live background noise. This commercial occasionally pops up but after several searches of the lyrics I can not find the name of the song anywhere. Would anyone know what it is or who the artist is?

Lets see how many super heroes we can cram into one movie without it feeling bloated.

Supposed to have a second date with the QT tomorrow. I told her Sunday that I'd text her tonight just to confirm. However yesterday night she texted me asking if we could slightly change what we were planning, but the time would be the same. I agreed and that was that.
Should I still text to confirm tonight or is that unnecessary since she texted to confirm kind of yesterday night?

Since none of you really bothered to ask anything in the Gundam AMA, I'll just do a general one!

Looks beautiful, can't wait to replay this underappreciated gem.

You have to split your birthday up into three days to hang out with all of them.

Spent all day yesterday with the cutie from work I saw Spider-Man with. She's super into Marvel and has me doing "Homework" basically catching up on all the Marvel films I haven't seen.
So right now I'm watching Iron Man 3, and man I don't know what to think about it. I don't like how the main bad guy is just a druggie actor but at least the rest of the plot is coherent.

My birthday is in two and a half weeks, and this will be the second time ever I'll be spending it with friends having fun. I never really celebrated it before because:
>Throughout school life, B-Day always landed on either the very first day or first week of school.
>First B-Day after graduating I was a literal NEET who laid around in bed all day while everyone else in the house worked/had school.
>Worked 12 hours shifts the next two B-Days
Last year was the first B-Day I went out with friends and had fun, I don't really count going out to dinner with my family as celebrating because we do that all the time anyways. It's weird seeing how things change in such a short amount of time.

I'm split 50/50 of how to feel about this movie.

Don't go see this shit show. What a tragic fucking waste of Tom Cruise.
Mike has the whole thing right, you'll end up laughing at moments that are meant to be taken seriously, you might annoy people in the theater. The Boss Baby came out back in March so it unfortunately doesn't get to take shittiest summer movie of 2017, but the good news is The Mummy came out so the void is now filled. I don't see anything else coming out before September that can seriously take its spot.
Here's hoping we have something to laugh at in 2019 with the Bride of Frankenstein

I was stupid and picked up a morning shift for tomorrow starting at 7am when my sleep schedule for the past half-year has me going to bed at around 2-3am. I already submitted my call-out online so now I don't have to spend the next few hours staring at the ceiling in frustration....

If any of you smoke, how did you get into it?
I have zero intention of ever trying it, the mere thought of lighting one up in mouth frightens me. But I would be lying if I said I wasn't intrigued by such a destructive behavior. When I was in grade school, the typical arguments I got from teachers and other authority figures was that everyone gets into it through peer pressure. I sincerely doubt that everyone was peer pressured into it, but I genuinely don't know any other way a person could get hooked on something like cigarettes.
I could just be overthinking it, but I really don't see how anyone could come up with the logical conclusion to intake a bunch of pathogens into their lungs to "reduce stress" when they could just go home and masturbate.

My oldest brother moved back in with me and brought a rice cooker. I picked up some veggies to add whenever I make rice but I don't know the first thing about cooking veggies.
I was told by my friend to add them in after the rice is done cooking and the steam will do the rest. He also said to not keep them in for too long or they lose their nutrients. I asked him how long I should keep them in and gave me a stupid "depends" answer.
So how long should I let veggies be steamed in a rice cooker to keep them cooked and keep their nutrients?

Taking one class at a time starting in August. I'll be taking Introduction To Theater to start.
I don't know how to feel about this, I'm more excited about getting out of the house and possibly meeting new people than the actual class.
