Serious case of procrastination this morning; three refresh of feeds while trying to avoid getting ready for work. 👀

Revisited ourworldindata.org/food-choice-vs-eating-local and apparently both pork and poultry are ~1/10th the emissions or beef.

Apparently sugar beets are a better source of sugar than either corn or sugar cane. Interesting...

Work finally implemented mandatory masks. Now I keep imagining I work with a bunch of Aiel.

Tangent: have reduced meat consumption somewhat. But have greatly reduced beef consumption in favor of pork (which I think is about a third of the CO2 foot print) and poultry (1/10). Haven't managed crickets yet tho.

As I was prepping supper this morning, it dawned on me that this evening will be the first non-slowcooker pork since the line speed restrictions were lifted. Had a talk with bae about cooking to the old 165F instead of the new 140F + 3min rest USDA guidelines.

It occurs to me that the head of the administration performing the roll backs probably doesn't care because he orders his meat cooked into shoe leather.

In fact, that's probably where the experimental physics should start their investigation. Cats. Oh, and I guess beds. 😁

I think inertial dampeners from Star Trek are possible. When my cat sits in my lap her effective inertia is 50x what her mass would normally exert.

Laurie Santos talks about percieved time famine. It explores idling and how our free time comes in smaller chunks, "time confetti". The encroachment of work on life as no one bats an eye texting for something.

This was a nice summary of my feelings of working a job where I am on call 24/7. If companies were serious about 24/7 support, they'd fill a position for nights/weekends. What willing 24/7 support means is "can we get free work out of you?"

Thinking how cute bae is when I see her foot twitching as she naps on the couch. The cat must be thinking it too bc the cat is watching.

Trump was always harping on trade balance. He's since made the US the #1 exporter of Carona Virus to Latin America.

No cal root beer drank: 0.5 tsp (2-3mL) root beer extract to 1L of water shake with CO2 at desired pressure to carbonate. I use 60psi (410kPa, Pa is the SI unit, right?)

Watched an episode of Nailed It! last night and felt my body get tense as Nicole leaned in to put the golden chef's hat on the first round winner. Just an interesting observation.

I should probably note this is the second time it happened. The first time my body tensed like that during Nailed It! was episode two, when the hat was revealed to be shared. It was instantly, just like every restaurant birthday hat before it, dubbed the Lice Hat in my mind.

Yeah, just for the moment Phonograph Joe is frozen in time.

When bae catches you chasing the cat, accusing it of being a new model of Sentinel, while wielding the last six carrots you were supposed to be cleaning like Wolverine claws.
