    Weird food related question I don't think will fit in other food threads:
    Is it weird to eat something purely because you appreciate all the effort and time that went into it? For example, brisket. I'm not a huge fan of meat in general but like. I know how long it takes to make what people consider Good Brisket, and it's not something you can set and leave. It's gotta be babysat, for up to 12 hours sometimes. I can really admire the dedication of a pit master. I just. Dont at all feel satisfied or happy after a piece, I'd rather eat a shitton of the 45 minute potato salad, or fill up on rolls and soda. Is that wrong?

    I think 'eat something because you appreciate the effort and care that went into creating food for you, despite the fact that you feel neutral or lightly negative about the taste' is a pretty standard social contract, at least it's what my parents taught me is the reason you at least try a food every time even if you think you won't like it, because you're showing appreciation and respect for the cook. I think it makes sense that that expands with the amount of effort taken.

    I have fairly different tastes (and dietary principles) than my mom, but when I lived with her as an adult I would eat till satiated on whatever she made for dinner, and if I didn't like it enough to keep me full for the night i'd have a low-effort snack a few hours later. it works out!

    I've been diving in and out of different books and art WIPs all day and managed to forget about lunch, apparently?

    Porn discussion, not graphic but about the industry itself:

    Was at a community ministry thing last night and some of the elders were jokingly talking about porn for reasons I can't really remember (derogatorily of course, because sexually repressed christians) and someone said " all porn doesn't even have dialog so how was (person being discussed, don't know who) credited for writing for (porno being discussed)" and I so desperately wanted to tell them about the lemon stealing whores because the Internet has ruined my sense of humor

    The children in genshin are out of control. Just was asked if I was gay "because I act gay" and wether I was old "like a wrinkle bag" WILD

    Possibly stupid question: If I found a note on my windshield after work that said someone hit my parked car, but I don't see any damage that wasn't already there, do I have to call them and get the stupid insurance company involved?

    Me: "Oh boy, new Maintenance Phase episode!"
    Mike in the intro: *joking about how all the feedback is about them mispronouncing words instead of about the content*
    Me: "haha"
    Aubrey a few minutes later: *repeatedly pronounces "Gila" with a hard G*
    Me: *screaming internally*

    I've been feeling kinda overwhelmed on and off about holiday prep but on the upside I am actually on top of it, in spite of badbrains??

    Also I got a cute little plastic critter as part of an early gift last night, he very much was a similar whimsical fantasy aesthetic to a Pokémon but I am 90% sure he isn't one. But he is adorable and I want to go on adventures with him.

    Do y'all ever have a Very Specific Food (or Drink) that you can't get a satisfying amount of regularly (I'm talking like. Once or twice a year at most), for whatever reason; could be cost, or seasonal, or scarcity, maybe location restricted, whatever? For me that's cashews. Those fuckers get me feeling like the world's happiest woodland creature, I'm just nibbling away at those weird little things. Love em. So pricey, too far to get to unless I want like... The world's smallest bag of em from a store that's not particularly accessible without a car. I love them. Nibble nibble nibble.

    I like other things, and crave stuff like everyone else, but cashews are Special.

    I've been watching scavengers reign on max and I'm really enjoying it! Love the mix of: here's a funky little alien creature, followed by some really gross body horror. Anyone else watching this?

    Bluesky is open now. It's not quite as busy as twitter, but I've been browsing and found like... almost zero nazis!
    A weirdly large number of birds, though. Maybe it's just me. — Bluesky
