Eh, tomato tomato.
A lot of combinations that go well with pasta are also great on pizza.
While I'd personally prefer this combination with pasta, I wouldn't have a problem with it on pizza either.
That said, I also like pineapple on pizza. It's not my favorite thing but I'm not against it. So maybe my opinion isn't valid to picky eaters as I will eat almost anything.

Honestly I can kinda imagine the flavor profile and it might actually be good. Maybe instead of pizza I'd serve it with tagliatelle and add the mayo to some creamy sauce along with some fried bacon bits, but I can easily imagine this being good.

I recently switched to solid shampoo and vinegar water instead of conditioner because it's a lot more eco friendly than regular shampoo and conditioners and dang does my hair look good.
Point is you don't have to use expensive products (I have bad experience with how expensive "professional" shampoos make my hair look and feel) but find one that fits your hair type. And damn using a product when it might cause hair loss is is just real stupid.

and sometimes they're so heartbroken because they thought they had ancestors in some place granny told them about, and they found out they didn't (again it might just be due to the inaccuracy of the test itself). So really cultural identity is something in your brain, not your genes, and I think you should be able to celebrate a culture without being perceived as offensive.

Hmm, you guys make a good point about the ethnicity tests. Africa is made up of so many tribes that dividing it into countries as the colonial powers did messed up a lot of things because it forced warring tribes to be in one country while separating other tribes. So it might not actually be accurate, I didn't realize that. I also agree with guest_'s point about cultures, the US is a land of immigrants, of course the descendants of Irish immigrants probably don't speak Gaelic and don't know a lot of the history or traditions. But that doesn't mean they can't try to immerse themselves in the culture.
I dislike this trend of accusing people of cultural appropriation. Cultures are beautiful and we shouldn't try to stop people from celebrating them, whether they have a genetic connection to said culture or not. I watched some YouTube videos in which people did ancestry tests,

A piece of clothing can only ever mess up your laundry load on its first wash cycle since brand new clothing tends to bleed dye. And even then it might not happen when you wash it in cold water. However washing everything together will make the colors duller overtime. The whites and the blacks will become grey and the colors will just be dull. I personally separate blacks from everything because most of my clothing is black so I can just wash it all together to stop the color from fading so much. Obviously it's gonna fade in time no matter what you do but you can try to slow it down.
Also, fabric softeners don't work AND they're really bad for the environment, putting in a 1:1 mixture of water and vinegar (with maybe some drops of essential oils if you want it to smell good, don't worry it won't smell like vinegar anyway) will help preserve the colors better than softener.

Look I don't wanna sound unsympathetic to the plight of the African peoples of which I don't know much about, but I think it'd be much more fruitful to get an ancestry test and reclaim one's cultural/ethnic identity than to complain about a thing that happened centuries ago.
The note says West Africans so he probably has a general idea already. And if you wanna say "well he's not in contact with his ancestors and he'd be an outsider to the identity he'd try to reclaim", aren't we all? Culture, ethnicity, nation, they're all made up concepts that we're socialized into. It's never too late to rediscover it if you want to. But don't just put on rose-colored glasses and jump in, that's how nationalism starts, there are good and bad parts to every culture's history, so if you wanna get really engaged, study it too.

One of the biggest gaming events and not a single case of violence 4 comments

Well, some people's stench can be pretty violent at gaming events. To the point some of them place signs that you should shower before attending.

Dust, yeah. And cat hair. Water spots not so sure. But that's in my experience the case with clothing, I'm not sure a brick wall would have the same attributes in that sense.

Painting the inside all black would be impractical as hell. Not having any color variation inside (meaning, one color for everything including furniture) would be impractical because it'd blend together and it'd be hard to find anything. That's not a thing for the outside. So I don't think it's entirely fair to compare the inside and outside. The outside of a building is usually a uniform color. Going minimalist black on the outside doesn't seem as bad as going one color on the inside. Plus it can insulate in winter and dirt doesn't show up as much as on lighter buildings.

You can wear all black without being emo/goth. Black is very elegant, in fact. I wear black minimalist stuff and I don't think I look emo at all.
I'm surprised, I truly didn't expect the "black = emo phase" mindset of someone who's able to use the internet, it's usually shared by people who are over 70 years old and hate any tiny sliver of non-conformity.
But yeah fuck Kat Von D.

Also if you live in a colder country this is a great idea.

Yeah if your ideology leads you to believe that your only role in life is to be a decoration and a birthing machine, then yeah you're gonna spend more time on your looks.
But it's still not true in my experience, you can't cover everything with makeup.

Might not be the best time for a vacation, actually 18 comments
ewqua · 2 weeks ago
Tbh asking for a vacation just one week prior is pretty inconsiderate to the colleagues who will have to fill in for you as they might've had other plans already. It's much better to ask a few weeks or a month in advance.
However judging from the conversation, it looks like maybe they decide on the spot, seeing as the boss gets to decide if it's a good time or not. Maybe that's how it works over there. Also clearly the boss has been refusing to give this person a vacation to the point they were willing to quit rather than come to work for one more day, so I'm not feeling bad for him/her. I am feeling bad for the co-workers who will have to compensate for the absence, though.
