The Flood / I grew out a beard and now I have to shave it
« on: September 24, 2018, 11:48:33 PM »
My beard is full enough for work but hardly full enough for a real "professional" look and I got a call for another promotion interview on Wednesday, meaning if I want to look good for the interview I have to chop the whole thing off after I spent the last two weeks growing it out.

Console me.

Serious / Chipotle having ANOTHER illness outbreak

Health officials have inspected three Chipotle restaurants in Powell, Ohio, following reports from customers who said they got sick after eating at the restaurants.

In two of the restaurants, inspectors found boxes of raw chicken "leaning" on other packaged foods, according to health records.

The violations come as Chipotle has spent millions of dollars on measures to improve food safety.

The Delaware General Health District on Thursday found "boxes of raw chicken partially leaning onto boxes of packaged foods" at the Chipotle restaurant at 9733 Sawmill Parkway that's at the center of a suspected illness outbreak, according to health records. The proximity of the raw chicken to other foods presented a risk of contamination, the report said.

Following a visit to another Chipotle, at 8695 Owenfield Dr., on Wednesday, inspectors wrote that a "box of raw chicken" was "observed up against boxes of unopened beans and very close to ready-to-eat items."

Inspectors also found foods that were not being held at proper temperatures.

In an emailed statement to Business Insider, a Chipotle spokeswoman, Laurie Schalow, said: "Food safety is our number one priority and we are proud of the industry leading practices and training we have in place across our system. These instances where two SEALED packaged products were next to each other in the walk-in refrigerator were immediately remedied."

DGHD said late Thursday that it had received 703 calls and emails concerning potential illnesses stemming from the Chipotle restaurant on Sawmill Parkway. Officials have tested customers' stool samples but have not identified a source of the suspected illness outbreak and are conducting further testing. The location temporarily shut down on Monday for cleaning and reopened on Tuesday. No customers who ate at the restaurant since Tuesday have reported becoming ill.

DGHD has also received three reports of possible illnesses stemming from two other Chipotle locations — the restaurant on Owenfield Drive and another at 1710 Columbus Pike — prompting inspections of both.

I'm probably gonna get a lot of flak for this, but I'm definitely one of those loyal customer type people; I used to eat at Chipotle twice a week. As much as I love their food and think they're a great company, I can;t help but find this hilarious, they can't seem to catch a break with their health code problems.

In other restaurant news: McDonald's new burger is surprisingly not shit, Taco Bell Nacho Fries are still badass, the Outback near my house now delivers, and I'm one visit away from a free appetizer at Hooters.

The Flood / AMA Just aced a promotion interview
« on: July 09, 2018, 03:58:42 PM »
My last interview was only 15 minutes, lots of silence and quick short responses, and a half blank resume.

This one was 35-40 minutes, long detailed stories, a full page resume on resume paper, and both interviewers telling me I did exceptionally well, looked sharp, provided great answers/questions, and that I had the experience they wanted. Basically telling me I had the job without actually telling me that because they went through the whole "We have other candidates we have to interview as well" spiel and that they'll give me their answer soon.

When Jesus Christ was 21 years old, he came to Japan and pursued knowledge of divinity for 12 years. He went back to Judea at age 33 and engaged in his mission. However, at that time, people in Judea would not accept Christ's preaching. Instead, they arrested him and tried to crucify him on a cross. His younger brother, Isukiri casually took Christ's place and ended his life on the cross.

Christ, who escaped the crucifixion, went through the ups and downs of travel, and again came to Japan. He settled right here in what is now called Herai Village, and died at the age of 106.

On this holy ground, there is dedicated a burial mound on the right to deify Christ, and a grave on the left to deify Isukiri.

The above description was given in a testament by Jesus Christ.

The Flood / AMA Weeabs ruin everything
« on: June 05, 2018, 06:25:02 PM »
I’m in the theater right now to see the Heaven’s Feel movie. So far I’ve ran into:

Three fat neck beards playing F/GO in front of me.
A Saber cosplayer two rows down.
A gay black couple sitting right next to me.
More weeabs above me saying this is the best route.

I wish when I was selecting my assigned seat I chose directly two rows down instead....

The Flood / Megacon Orlando 2018
« on: May 25, 2018, 08:50:10 AM »
Guys give me suggestions on what I should do while I'm here.

So I went with my sister yesterday cause she really really wanted me to go, so I bought a half-day ticket for only yesterday since it opened at like 4pm, and it was only 24 bucks. But when the lady at the ticket booth gave me the wristband, she gave me the four-day deluxe band by accident so I get to go today for free essentially.

Of course I'm gonna buy some swag but let me know what else I should look out for.

The Flood / Power supply help
« on: April 30, 2018, 11:30:11 AM »
So when I first built this computer two years ago, I got an 850W EVGA PSU. It worked great until April of last year and it started making this God forsaken chirping noise, I bought a replacement EVGA PSU two months later and it worked fine...until now. The chirping noise is back, granted it's not as strong as the first EVGA PSU but it's still noticeable and very much annoying.

The PSU is fully modular, if I buy a Corsair PSU can I just swap the blocks out without messing with the cables? I'm not buying another EVGA PSU after this.

The Flood / Morgoth Did Nothing Wrong
« on: April 14, 2018, 09:57:07 PM »


Who's really in the wrong? Melkor for singing his own song and creating """disharmony""" in the music (which didn't amount to anything significant anyways), or Iluvatar for not letting Melkor just sing his own song? I'd argue the latter; what's with Gods and thinking they're all high and mighty? Would it kill them to be a little more humble?

The Flood / Depression/Good starting alcohol
« on: February 07, 2018, 12:16:32 PM »


I would like to take this time to apologize to Chally and Co. for not taking their advice which could have easily prevented this.

So the reason I haven't responded to anyone is because I've been coming to the realization that the girl I've been struggling with has no interest in ending things on a good note (or providing closure at all for that matter), and it's been eating me alive for the past three months. I'll probably never know why she's changed, why she's clearly treating me differently, what I might have done to cause this, or whether or not our date or hanging out as friends meant anything to her at all, and it fucking hurts.

I'm a teetotaler and that's been something I've taken pride in but at this point I don't care about my ideals anymore and I just want the pain to go away. Will a liquor store still sell me alcohol even though my ID says "Under 21 until X date" even though I'm 23? Also, is Vodka a good starting alcohol? I was told it has no taste and I was just going to mix it in with Gatorade or something. I don't want anything that has a burning sensation, and I don't know what wine is like so I'm not sure if that's a good one to get hammered on.

The Flood / AMA Converted to Hellenism
« on: February 04, 2018, 11:00:53 PM »
My response to Das in another thread has got me thinking more and more about the fact that despite being raised Catholic, the idea of the Greek gods has spoken to me more than anything else.



And I'm not trying to be ironic or meme or anything. I have been very unsatisfied with Christian theology for a long time in my life, other religions seem completely alien to me, and atheism personally is just too....depressing. But as I looked more and more into Greek culture and more specifically their religion, it sparked an interest no other religion has, and got me looking into trying to understand it.

The Flood / >He doesn't main a Dark Magician deck
« on: February 02, 2018, 12:00:39 AM »


Don't be a fucking pleb.

Anyways, I was walking around a shopping center on Monday while waiting for my car to get out of the shop for a simple oil change. Stopped off at a Gamestop and got the Legendary Dragons Decks box for ten bucks. Came with three structure decks, one Dark Magician/dragon deck, one Cyber Dragon deck, and one Odd Eyes Pendulum deck. Shit is pretty cool. Played against my sister's BF today and went back and forth in win/loss; he has a good Aqua deck.

Discuss Yugioh I guess.

Keep that hack away from my anime! He'll destroy it just like everything else he's tainted with his touch. If it was Marc Webb I might have been sold on the idea, but Mystery Box man of all people? Fuck no.

Serious / Seattle's Sugary Drink Tax
« on: January 11, 2018, 10:54:15 AM »
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/seattles-soda-tax-experiment-is-doomed-to-failure/article/2645568

TL;DR:

>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)

Meanwhile:

>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
>Not obese

The Flood / Ribeye cooking issue
« on: January 10, 2018, 02:34:27 PM »
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?

The Flood / Tokyo commercial song
« on: December 10, 2017, 01:14:27 PM »
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?

The Flood / Quick question
« on: October 04, 2017, 06:42:24 PM »
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?
