    Massive Fatberg Found Blocking Sewer In British Seaside Town

    January 8, 20196:41 PM ET
    [​IMG]

    A massive "fatberg" — a clump of fat, oil and other waste items — has been found in the sewer of a town in England. It's reportedly longer than the height of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It will take a sewer team around eight weeks to dissect and dispose of the obstruction.

    Nothing makes me mad quite like getting home from the grocery store and seeing something is expired. I check the meats in store but sometimes I won’t with things like sauces

    Do you guys usually take it back? I have a $5 bottle of habanero ranch that expired a month ago

    Recently took back a container of grapes and cherry tomatoes that had spoilage within a few days of purchase. GOAT box store, Costco, is great about returns.

    Diet Dr Pepper is legit

    btw from that video about how much piss is in your average pool, i learned that diet drinks don't truly have zero calories, it's just that your body can't break down the artificial sweeteners

    I always stuck with Coke Zero if I was going to have a Coke. I found it weird that they discontinued it.

    Eat the ranch and then sue the grocery store if you get sick. It’s a win, win.

    Speaking of grocery stores, I have become addicted to these:

    One of the things I'll probably never shake is that I say "sir/mam" to almost every service person in a restaurant, bar, store, whatever. Just really strangers I encounter in day-to-day life. My parents beat it into my head and it's obviously commonplace in the South. It gets some comments out West, but nothing big.

    However, there are lots of transgender people in Seattle. Twice this week I've gotten a big stink eye from what I believe are transgender men when I absent-mindedly responded, yes mam, or thank you mam. I was buying some pistachios at the convenience store just now, he asked "is that all?" I responded yes mam and his eyes shot up. I apologized, and just said, "yes, that's it." Need to be more aware.

    For some reason it just popped into my head how much of our daily life is spent working or on work adjacent activities (such as driving to and from work).

    Say you put in a 7.5-8-hour day at work
    1 hour for lunch
    30-minute to 1-hour drive round trip to and from work
    30 minutes to 1 hour getting ready to head in to work

    That's 9.5-11 hours a day away from home.

    If you sleep for around 8 hours a day that only leaves 5.0 to 6.5 hours of true personal time on a work day (I don't consider the hour of lunch true personal time since you are kind of limited with what you can do with it given you are in between work shifts), which includes making time for breakfast, dinner, and miscellaneous chores you have to do like laundry, dishes, cleaning, etc.

    No wonder I often felt like I didn't have time to do shit, I was working 50-60 hours a week and only getting in like 6-7 hours of sleep.

    working from home solves a lot of this. With that said, It's a natural tendency to fill those 3 items with more work. I get online first thing, generally don't take lunches anymore and then don't have a commute, so i'm on email more than i was when i was in the office.

    but t he flip side is that I cycle laundry, can receive packages from home, and do other random household tasks with more simplicity.

    Having the cable guy over? no problem.
