They still have them, they just cost ~$250 for approximately 15 kids. Just like Chic Fil A. But that's the price of most other kids birthday places so it's less worth it.

They have to be slurpee/icee type if it's an actual slushie (liquid with ice/snowcone rather than sort of smushed & whipped popsicle in texture) it's asking for horrible sticky spills all over you/your car. If it is the correct texture then you put the dome lid on, put that near the nozzle and fill it up to the top, tap the bottom on the counter to get out any big air bubbles/settle the slurpee, then fill the last little bit more.
Everyone has different experiences, I've never seen anyone put the lid on second, including concession stand people at movies where they sell icees.
Xandri below is correct in that if you do it this way it will go everywhere while driving.

It's not always unbelievable, it just depends on what bar he/she was at.
A similar thing happened to one of my husband's coworkers a couple weekends ago, they were all at a local government and tech professionals conference, after all the sessions of the day they were in a bar, the coworker isn't into women but was chatting just like they all were, not intentionally flirting with the woman, just killing time talking, a couple hours go by and she asked if he wanted to go and the "expectations", at which point he politely gave the valid "Thanks but I'm gay" sort of line and she was offended asking why he was wasting her time. The other coworkers ribbed him a bit. Escorts are not uncommon, and honestly they tend to hang out where people with disposable income and likely lack of partners are, especially conferences/convention centers or $$$ areas, and they look/dress/flirt/act like someone you'd be interested in.

They're keeping the child in the safest place at the moment. The detachable car seat carriers are heavy with any sized child after extended lengths, and by leaving the carrier on the ground it lets the child not get jostled as they have to move and fill out paperwork. They're probably waiting on a patrol car with a carseat/matching base (the part the child is in needs the base to secure into a car).

McDonalds' usually have their braille menu, have had them for many years.
Braille menus are expensive to make (plastic, metal, anything other than paper), or print (paper). Honestly many restaurants offer their menus online and a refreshabraille or screen reader or text to speech app would allow them to have a readable menu without the expense of changing it each time an item was added/removed.

Superman did not have all those powers when he was a child, they came at various times from infancy through adulthood. If I remember correctly, first it was invulnerability (I seem to remember the Kent's trying to cut his hair and failing), then strength as a young child (maybe still believe in Santa age), then it was x-ray vision (past Santa age), then I want to say speed but could be remembering incorrectly, then flight, and then I guess frost breath because I don't remember that being addressed specifically.
Why did you even ask for a resume? 5 comments
guest · 7 weeks ago
I've run into attempts where they "try" to do that and it takes longer to fix their poor formatting import than it would be to just copy paste it in blank. Was super disappointed.
They don't look at the resume until later in the process, they need things entered in so that the HR person who knows nothing about what they're trying to hire can search for exact keywords (so if your resume says "Edited videos for XXXX" and they're searching for "Video Editing" then you're out of luck.) It is as simple as an idiot searching most of the time. That's why when you (supposedly) update your resume for every application you go to the job posting and copy exactly how they state it and rework your relevant skills to match those keywords. It is stupid, and frustrating, and the people who could look at your resume and go "This person is perfect!" don't get a chance to see the initial applicants, only the ones that HR passes on to them unless you're a really small business.

When it is very hard to tell the difference, you can tell them they're equal (or equally bad), it does help to focus on just one particular letter (I find the O's are the easiest because one will usually look a little taller and the other number a little wider; also things like T's for the edges, which is clearer).

They use pears because they're cheap, sweet, and mild flavored - you can cover up the flavor of pear without a lot of work, and it's solid instead of just being corn syrups (HFCS and standard CS). It has nothing to do with the flavor of pear being anywhere remotely close to natural or artificial strawberry.

I think keyboards have ruined me 2 comments

To be fair, penmanship was stressed for prior generations, as computers entered school, and timelines got condensed (compare Kindergarten even 10 years ago to now) kids are expected to know more, and do things like scantrons, not essay write. They are either not taught cursive or it's covered quickly.
When I was younger and had to hand write sooooooooo much my handwriting was better than it is today where the only thing I hand write is quick post it notes or entries on calendars, or showing my kids what to do. I haven't forgotten how to do it, I just don't waste time being neat (except for showing my kids, then I'm precision).
Sit down and practice how you want to do your signature for 5 minutes a day for a couple weeks and you'll improve, "designing" a signature rather than simple cursive writing of your name is the hardest part.

Plant fruit trees everywhere 13 comments
guest · 7 weeks ago
In addition to the points of the other guest, active fruiting trees are messy. The fruits that aren't easily reachable or the ones that fall and rot, or the ones that wildlife decides to take a few bites of so they rot on the tree before falling to the ground make a mess under and around the tree. If it's one or two trees, most are not self pollinating, so you'd have a very limited number of fruits available during a very specific time of year, if it's multiple types, it would still be staggered availability, messy, and even if intended for the homeless there would be the people saying "this is my tax money" and gleaning the fruits, additionally kids are assholes and would play around destroying the trees and chucking underripe fruit at each other for the hell of it, ruining the "harvestability".

Maybe a kind of berry-taste...? 20 comments

Or old timey medicines that were mostly alcohol. Wheat can be used to make (alone or in part of) various alcohols (Vodka, Whiskey, Gin, Schnapps, Baijiu, various sweet liqueurs), and flowers are used in others (Vermouth, Gin, Creme de Violette, Rose Liquors, Hibiscus liqueurs, Elderflower liquer). So the Skyrim one, depending on ratios would probably just taste like you're pounding back some sweet floral hard liquor.

Minimum wage is meant for one individual to be able to support themselves and live in ways that most people don't think of as an option. It's not there to support comfortable AC/heat in Summer/Winter just not heat stroke/freezing. It's not there to support your "need" for pets. It's not there to support TV/internet/cellphone/cable/new cars/more than basic clothing, possibly shared renting of an apartment, public transportation to that job, basic food. It's there to make sure you can survive, not to make sure you can be happy. Social programs keep extending what is "necessary" and many people think they have to have things that they really don't.
Freedom? 16 comments
guest · 11 weeks ago
A lot of people want a bit of their own nature, be it for gardens, pets, or just to have their own backyard they can sprawl out on a nice day without having to trek to a park.
Apartment life doesn't offer that, the small, formerly starter home, houses in most major cities costs exponentially more than these suburban homes, these are a nice in between. They give those who want to have a family a place that they can make friends, and have kids for theirs to play with and typically have better school options.
If you know you're wanting to stick in an area, it's not impractical to look at what's available. Commutes aren't always long, and mass transit is not always faster.
There are older neighborhoods and newer ones. Mixes of amenities, and different feels to different communities.
The worst part of them are the HOAs that are seemingly in every new community.

Chicken_nugget - they make minimum wage.
There are some states where the employers are required to pay the full state minimum wage before tips, there are some states that require the Department of Labor Fair Labor Standards Act minimum cash wage before tips ($2.13/hr), and there are some that require a minimum wage above the ($2.13/hr) before tips.
*ALL* states require that the employees earn at least minimum wage after tips. and $5.12 is the maximum tips/hr that can be counted against that.
You're a server work 5 hours, have one hour with $100 in tips, and four hours with no customers and no tips = over minimum wage for the shift, no extra pay from employer; you work 5 hours no customers no tips = employer is required to bring you up to minimum wage not just the $10.65 in minimum cash wage for those hours.

Where you work really impacts the tips you get. Some people get high and mighty assuming every single server should get a high percentage tip no matter the restaurant, no matter the service. If it's a buffet, you tip lower but you do still tip if they're refilling your drinks and taking plates away, if it's terrible you don't tip well, if you're ordering mixed alcoholic drinks at a place with a bar you tip extra so the server isn't paying out the tip on money they didn't get. But at the end of the day the people whining over and over that they've got it so rough, they are guaranteed the equivalent of minimum wage for the duration of their shift, that means if they have two amazing hours and the overall total divides out to minimum wage then they don't get extra for the terrible hours, but if they have a full shift with no customers they don't earn $2-3/hr, they get minimum wage. If you want to earn more, find a way to get a job at a more expensive/better clientele restaurant.

If he actually works for Pepsi, and that's not just an old shirt or giveaway, that (buying/consuming a competitor's product in public) could get him fired. Had a teammate in soccer whose dad worked for Pepsi, (both her parents were at every game, he took her to practice) even if they were part of the snacks some parents brought she could not drink Coke because he could lose his job for his that. Yes he got lots of free Pepsi products but it sucked for her. Same for people who are Coca-cola employees, assume it's the same for outside of beverages for the non-fast-food jobs (so like Hershey vs Mars, Frito Lay vs some other chip brand but they're owned by Pepsi so maybe they have the soda restriction too).

It is a fun show except they're always *always* shoving their political views in there. It's one of those shows where if you have an issue with the views they hold you won't be watching it, you don't need to be convinced that the hardships they face is bad over and over and over again.
Great, the dad calls Nomi his daughter for the first time, whatevs, let's get some more Sun and Wolfgang screentime.
*Another* orgy of the sensate? How about some more plot!
Ok, Lito and Co. are being blacklisted, fine, spend a couple minutes to express it, not massive blocks of screentime, you're an expensive show that was told you need to cut down the costs, let's move this plot forward. Did they do some of that push forward? Yeah, but it was very rushed at the end. It lucked out and is getting a final episode to wrap things up, but they were going like if they made everything the biggest political statement 'how could Netflix not renew them.'

The ones on the left are Costco rotisserie chickens, they (at least 3lbs each, the few I've pulled the meat off of and actually weighed have had slightly over 3lbs of meat once the bones, skin, and larger fat/cartilage pieces stripped away) are $4.99 plus tax every day for however many you want. (When you get them fairly often it's easy to identify because of their size and color, it's pretty standard).
The one on the left has extra seasoning or whatnot, it does not look like a Costco chicken so it (unless clearanced) cost at least a few dollars more.

(different 'guest') Sending a picture of yourself kissing someone isn't good a way of announcing a relationship to your parents no matter what your orientation, gender, race, etc., it's a way of trying to get a reaction. Swap the players for people of different skin colors, of dramatically different ages, in different religious garb, it's trying to get a reaction you can then either go "They're so supportive" or "Oh look at what terrible people my parent's are". It's a cry for attention for people who have to post everything on social media.

I had popcorn the afternoon before a dental appointment one time and forgot As the hygienist is doing the regular pre-dentist cleaning she says in her heavily southern accent what I hear as "Oh, I found a hole." My mind freaks out, and around the fingers and tools I mange a "What?!" "Found a hole. You had popcorn earlier?" Never have I ever eaten popcorn the same week as a dental visit ever since.
The best kind of starter pack 58 comments

It can apply to nearly any politician. With that election a lot of people ended up voting for what was "the best of two bad options" in their minds, one of those situations where you'd like to vote for a third party but if you do then it meant the "worse of two bad options" would be the equivalent of one vote higher because you weren't voting against them on someone who could win.
The real questions now are - is Trump going to run for a second term (with the ego he has I don't see him choosing not to run for reelection), and who is going to be the Democratic challenger. If their platform repeats a strong dose of "If you don't vote for me you're a [any number of options]-ist and too stupid to know better" in it's rhetoric they will once again piss off a lot of people who term themselves as moderates who don't vote party lines.

The only downside is if there's shifting/cracking. Our patio is stamped & stained concrete and looks nice except the long spaces where they cut through to allow it to shift with the ground/weather changes, it breaks up the aesthetic (still looks nice but they can't just cut along the shaped grooves to make "natural" separations). That's the thing about large stretches of concrete, they need those in order to not to form unmanagable cracks with the standard fluctuations of the seasons and so if there is damage it's a smaller area to remove/repair. (For anyone thinking of doing this on their own, the easy solution in this case would have been to make the small gaps then to roll the imprint over it.

Jolene has nothing on her 4 comments

She is amazingly generous, another good thing about this program is they partner with APH (American Printing House for the Blind) and provide books to visually impaired children - usually accessible books are *DRAMATICALLY* more expensive so a blind child would not have many that could engage them - for example the once a year, limited quantities, special print-braille tactile books, if you don't order the one produced this year within 1 or 2 months of their appearance then you're not going to get them and they don't reprint because it's a special arrangement with LDQR to get them produced - this year's was Goin' on a Bear Hunt, much like the song, (and while their standard $59 one from the past is nice, and likely closer to what's sent, it's nowhere near as engaging) it has a tactile line through the story and a tactile 'map' at the end (segments of the 'grass' 'snow' etc in order) for retelling, $299. You can search the aph site or youtube for a better idea than I can describe.

Isn't he the one who came back and was basically immediately physically and sexually assaulting his wife who was also kidnapped? The same one who took that pregnant wife to a known very dangerous place they were warned to stay away from, wants a large family and continued to try making that large family even though while in captivity they killed the daughter they conceived.
Yeah, I'm not going to care too much about what he thinks is a joke or not.
