    AxeFx sounds best at home through high-end nearfields. They aren't cheap, but you deserve something nice.

    Thinking about a new ESP, but the one I want comes with a reversed headstock and that bugs the fuck out of me.

    You just gave me a mini flashback. Grandparents outside fridge was always stocked with Faygo, Fanta, Tab, etc. I remember the peach and of course the rockin-rye lol. Favorite was redpop. I never knew that the brand still existed... I'm ancient.

    Emoji must be made searchable. Pass this on to all your friends, speak up in your town halls, write to your representatives. If we ask for it, they'll do it.

    hows that a first world problem? I think you confused this tread with the un-popular opinions tread :p

    and btw I do also enjoy pop-tarts, even if they are 99% sugar

    So true.

    Also the supermarket ran out of their Salted Caramel and Chocolate Chip cookies. I feel lost...

    On that note... My local store was out of Keebler Fudge Stripe cookies. Had to resort to buying the off-brand version. I saved money and they're actually not bad but I'm left feeling like the elves just don't care anymore.

    Turns out those Keebler Elves, even though they work without wages, still want full health coverage, and with the rising costs of medical services getting out of control, along with the opioid epidemic hitting the elves harder than expected, it's just so much cheaper to use sweat shops to make the generic store-brand cookies. But this just further feeds into the problem as the elves now are starting to turn their magic into darker magic (not really black magic, more like medium darkish gray magic) in order to try to become youtube pranksters, but mostly just annoying people who refuse to give permission to be shown on a second-rate youtube elf prank channel.

    Oh well...

    Back to first world problems...I'm bummed out that I have zero comments on my youtube videos.

    Last time I bought a taco bell quesadilla, one of the pieces had no cheese on it, so today I treated myself to a taco bell quesadilla "with extra cheese" (which is some infinitescimal extra charge, like $0.20 or something). Still one piece with no cheese at all on it, although the other pieces now have too much cheese on them.

    Unrelated first world problem, but a bit of a long setup:

    So far this winter in Northeastern Vermont, it has been super bitter cold. We do not have piped natural gas here, so people need to heat their homes either with truck-delivered diesel fuel or with wood. My house has a small wood stove, but the only ducted central heating system runs on oil. Knowing truck deliveries were going to be busy, I ordered oil before the cold snap hit, thinking the delivery would come a week and a half or more after I ordered, so my tank would be full when the temperatures dropped. Well, the delivery guy came the day after and my tank was full 20 gallons before I got the amount I ordered, so I got charged a return fee. Now that it's been a few weeks, and I need oil again, there is a three week wait on deliveries while we are expecting a wind chill tonight of -45° F (-43° C), since everyone is in a panic. Time to huddle around the stove, I guess.
