    Chli peppers tend to get hotter the hotter and drier the weather is. Usually the hottest ones are later in the season. But this year the first crop of my cayennes was extra hot because it was so dry for like 2 weeks before we get the tropical storm rain. Not sure but I assume the same would be true for jalapenos.

    This also may be a myth/anecdotal or totally useless information.

    In conclusion, could be a spicy jalapeno, might not be.

    Wheat Chex #1

    One of my favorite bits of trivia ever is that Chex paid to have a Doom clone made that revolved around Chex. It was called Chex Quest and it came in a cd-rom inside of the Chex boxes in the 90s. And it was actually pretty good.

    A few months ago, I ordered a "Manscaped" ball trimmer. Highly recommend if you're in the market.

    I also inadvertently signed up for a membership where they send me a new razor every 3 months (who shaves their balls that much?) and charge me $20. Saw the charge on my card, emailed them asking what was up.

    They replied immediately, issuing a refund and stopping my membership. They emailed me tonight saying the new razor has already shipped, but told me to keep it and I'll still be getting the refund.

    Very refreshing to deal with an awesome company. Buy Manscaped.

    Watching a show or a movie and I recognize a random spot in your neighborhood when it is supposed to be set somewhere not even close cracks me up. In this case Sneaky Pete is supposed to be in Pismo Beach which is almost Northern California, but it’s filmed a couple blocks from me in the LBC.

    Long Beach is just inside the 30 mile zone which is the cutoff to make it a local production for crew benefits, pay, etc. So a ton of beach stuff or downtown type of scenes will get filmed here. Pretty much anything in Dexter that had a water in it was filmed here. There was a scene that was supposed to be in the summer and you could spot floating Christmas trees in the water.

    They filmed scenes for the Giovanni Versace murder show which was set in Miami outside of my apartment building. Was kind of annoying cause they blocked off parking for a couple of days.

    Co worker just sent me and another co worker a screenshot of an email they received from their superior. It concluded by urging their employees to have tough conversations about race and diversity with co workers.

    He asked me and my co worker, who is black, to set up a meeting to have this discussion. Which is a fucking hell of a thing to do. "Hey guys, let's talk race, you set up the meeting... I don't know how"

    I am really hoping my other co worker says "nah I'm good". Me and him talk 30 minutes a day... we're cool.

    This could be awkward as fuck, especially since I know the guy is fox news brainwashed

    Every time I go to a farmer's market or anything with local vendors, I'll see all kinds of artisan jams/jellies, local honey, teas, and a million other things, but I've never seen anybody sell homemade peanut butter. Is peanut butter really difficult to make or something?

    I imagine it's because most people aren't growing peanuts. But idk, I've never tried making it. I've made plenty of jellys/jams with stuff I've grown.
