Magic Nerds mad about tiddies[edit]

A creator from the Wizards of the Coast creator program has been fired for allegedly sexualising the game with her onlyfans content and antifeminist chuds are blaming it on her being 'too hot so feminists shut her down' instead of a corporate decision about their image.

Do book reviews go in the clogosphere?[edit]

If so, here's a good one, from a soldier in the Spanish Civil War. Enjoy! — Unsigned, by: 2001:8003:59db:4100:c477:8214:79d9:b102 / talk / contribs

RE: "Bernie's mittens a sign of white privilege"[edit]

LMAO people actually believe that? Smh some people are just getting bored, and are constantly looking for things to be offended by- especially since they already have a confirmation bias against Bernie for not going down the identity politics rabbit-hole. --Goatspeed.

Not people. One person. Magnified beyond all significance by the internet. This is the Modern World. LondonGrump (talk) 23:34, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
It does seem to be a telling example of wokism's game of one-upmanship, to the point where it seems to be clutching at straws. And yes, that a ridiculous take like this gets amplified by the Internet is also telling. Smerdis of Tlön, wekʷōm teḱsos. 13:42, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

If we must fight another civil war....[edit]

... having Mr. Potato Head as the casus belli is an excellent idea. Smerdis of Tlön, wekʷōm teḱsos. 23:33, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

There is no "wrong" or "right" way to cook carrots[edit]

Bennet is a dumbass who promotes harmful ideas but out of things to attack her on, carrot slices being inconsistent just seems cheap and petty? I've cut carrots probably at inconsistent slices. I did peel them. But they're going to end up pulverized for soup anyway. It kind of reminds me of East Asian people denouncing how an Indian-heritage woman is "ruining" rice by rinsing after steaming (though only following BBC) but actually some SE Asians say they do this. Or that cheese on ramen is ruining ramen, but it's common practice in South Korea and among Korean-Americans or those with Korean heritage? Cultural appropriation is valid discourse and there's good and bad technique for cooking, but I can't fret over carrot slice thickness. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 22:48, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

Agree, kind of a meh complaint. At any rate, her Onlyfans dis in the second video is kinda funny, because lately Onlyfans is trying to broaden themselves instead of being focused on adult models, and there are actually some (non-adult, for the gutter minded :p ) chef-oriented Onlyfans out there. Also, "props" for Bennett (who previously had made anti-Semitic statements) for using Old BayWikipedia spice, a Baltimore success story from a Jewish man, Gustav Brunn. He created an enduring American spice blend, despite the challenges of dealing with Nazis in his original homeland of Germany, and dealing with anti-Semites in America. You probably didn't mean it, Bennett, but you just gave a great shout out to American immigrants and diversity there! PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 23:38, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
You definitely do need to peel carrots. And chop the top off. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 23:44, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
I generally peel them and parsnips, as well as potatoes, so I'm also wondering why she apparently didn't peel (the photo didn't seem super clear to me either). Again probably bad technique (her grip on the knife, I also can't tell if it's a proper grip but I do feel that a finger on the knife grants more control). But length of carrot slices seem like a nitpick and I still think it's important to know what she's cooking in the first place.
Anyhow, in the U.S. it's really hard to find food that isn't a product of immigrants. Ketchup has Chinese contribution. Pizza and burgers are self-explanatory. French fries from Belgium. Even in the U.S. the American stuff is icky brown native crap like corn, turkeys, chocolate, tomato, spicy peppers, potato. Without diversity, what the hell will food be? I certainly can't live without authentic Chinese food. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 23:56, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
As to peeling carrots, that's the common thing to do, but it's not always needed or wanted. For example, I'm fermenting a few carrot chips. Now, I could have peeled them, but I simply scrubbed them instead, because (a) the small amount of peel won't deter from the end result, and (b) much of the needed lacto-baccili is on those peels. (no, not for any probiotic reason, but rather because that's what causes the ferments. I just like the taste of pickled things. I make my own sauerkraut because what I make is miles ahead of anything I can buy at the megamart.) Kencolt (talk) 07:54, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
