GM's Thread About Everything/GM's Thread About Nothing


Recommended Posts

It's pretty straightforward...

-Dollop of coconut oil in, like, a medium sized pan on medium heat(you don't want to scorch the hell out of the popcorn before it all pops)

- Throw in 3 or 4 kernels first and cover the pan(IMPORTANT!)

- Once those kernels have popped, dump in the remaining kernels you're gonna pop(like, 1/3 or 1/4 of a cup)

- Make sure you put the lid back on the pan

- Now you sort of need to "shake" the pan back and forth on the burner to make sure you're agitating the kernels.

- Keep it on the heat until the popping reduces to somewhere around two seconds between pops.

- Remove from heat. Season.

- Place popcorn in mouth. Chew. Swallow.

This is the step I've been missing, the magic moment it stops being jiffy pop and becomes a worthwhile endeavor. Thanks.

Moo.

HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad

Can somebody walk me through this "peanut butter and jelly sandwich" thing?

Also pretty straightforward....

- Open bread bag and remove amount desired(or slice off what you desire if you're dealing with a homemade loaf)

- Open peanut butter

- Using a butter knife, slather desired amount of peanut butter onto bread(if using multiple pieces, it's customary to apply it on only one side, but not restricted to that)

- Wipe butter knife clean to make sure it is free of peanut butter.(IMPORTANT! PB does not reside in the jelly jar, so do not cross contaminate. You aren't some kind of neanderthal)

- Open jelly.

- Using butter knife, slather desired amount of jelly onto bread(again, if multiple pieces are involved it is customary to apply the jelly to the opposite piece that was previously peanut butter'd)

- If using multiple pieces of bread, place one on top of the other with the peanut butter and jelly facing each other(IMPORTANT! This avoids unnecessary mess)

- If using one piece of bread, fold/cut bread in half so peanut butter/jelly mixture is on the inside of your sandwich(IMPORTANT! Again, this avoids unnecessary mess)

- Place sandwich in mouth. Bite. Chew. Swallow.

I am pretty sure we have already gone over this in GMTAN v1.0. You forgot the crazy steps where you transfer the pb&j into a bowl, and mix it up, creating extra items to clean, before spreading it on the bread.

you guys got some sort of link for this Ron story?

Blah blah blah, he raw-dogged some chick and spent way too much money on her. The end.

Wrong, he spent way too much on "bottle service in the champaign room" he was in no way spending that money to bang her, that just happened on its own.

We got rid of all of our butter knives.

Don't you dare start with this crap again. I will cut you.

If it makes it more palatable, the microwave burned out and I decided to use the microwave shelf as a liquor cabinet instead.

Always liked you, Henry

It just seemed like the only sensible thing to do.

Real funny guys, thanks for the homeless shelter and food bank links in the pm's but I assure you I'm not the Mexican living in GM's house, he has at least one other Mexican friend!

Kinda salty about being unable to buy Bitgold.

Bob promised me I could sleep with his wife and attend some swingers' parties. :shrug:

Canadian stocks can be a royal pain in the balls to buy initially. I think you have to lean on your prime broker and demand they let you buy Canadian shares.

We got another IPO coming this year. I'll keep you posted.

If it makes you feel better GM, one of my kids #### their pants and I can't tell which one because I'm too lazy to get off the couch

If it makes you feel better GM, one of our cats pooped in our shower sometime during the night and I didn't see it before turning on the hot water this morning.

proninja or anyone else..

I have a Cannondale that I bought at a garage sale 8 years ago and I haven't ridden in about 4 years. Pulled it out of the garage the other day because I need some type of exercise.

Both wheels/tubes need replaced. Neither of the brakes work either. How do I determine if I just need to replace the brake cables, or should I just replace the entire brakes.

Is this possible to do for about $50 on my own?

in what way do the brakes not work? when you press the brake levers, does the cable cause the pads on the wheels to compress onto the rims? are the pads visibly worn?

you had to replace your wheels? or just the innertubes?

Front brakes, lever pulled nothing happens, looks like one of the cables broke. Back brakes, pull the lever and the pads don't move.

Innertubes definitely need replaced. I think the tires do too because they look deformed from sitting in the same spot for 4 years. I'll take some pics.

might just need to tighten the cables. make sure to send close up pics of the pads.

Front brakes. Torn cable shown on left side of picture. Part I'm holding just fell off.

Rear brakes are just closed shut.

Tire. Does this need replaced or just the innertube?

Stick to the bike on the left with the pink pedals.

unless there's some length to work with, looks like the frayed bit makes your cable replaceable.

can't tell about the front brake pads- from the pic they don't look worn down, but hard to tell.

rear brakes... can't tell from pic. sounds like they're frozen- not cable issue, but just full of crud/rust and not opening. try to gently/forcefully jimmy them open. make sure the brake cable is are loose first

tire- can't tell. I'd say to ride it and if it's really wonky/wobby or you flat again on teh new tube, replace the tire.

but given the years of non-use, if you're serious about riding it semi-regularly, I'd take it to a local bike shop for a tuneup. IIRC, costs about 40 bucks. If it was in front of me, I'd brush off my own 10 years of rust and do it myself.

eta: missed that that bit "fell off". duct tape or crazy glue should work.

How do I know what cable I need? I guess just take this one off and measure the length and diameter?

Not sure about duct taping the "bit", whatever that is.

You got a collection of airplane bottles or pints lined up in there? Or am I just poor and the rest of the world has microwaves that are tall enough to hold fifths and handles? :isthisanahamoment?:
