Things you just don't get - Page 1460

I also don't get how people sitting there drinking coffee can tell me that sugar free Red Bull is bad for me.

i dont understand how either is supposed to be bad for you

Caffeine is bad for you, it will make your base line for energy much lower and easier to fuck with, so in the end you get more tired when drinking caffeine.

That's what I was trying to convey: that saying someone you know "died" in English just feels too direct, impersonal, and cold.

If you think that sounds cold, you should hear the Danish word for dead. Try and get google translate say it. Død.

Not to sound like an old man but Letterman in the 80s was awesome.

'It was just silliness. And when that occurred to me, I felt so much better and I realized, geez, I don’t think I care that much about television anymore.'



 



Doesn't he realize that he made a lot of people smile at the end of the day for a lot of years and thinking about him still makes people smile? Isn't that worth something?

Watching Letterman in the 90s after begging my parents to stay up late was also awesome.

He only did four nights a week back then, Mon-Thurs, and it became ritual for my group of friends to try and catch the Thursday night show. Can't tell you have many times we finished off our beers at 12:20 and dashed back to a nearby apartment to watch Letterman.

I can tell my cats have been going to my youtube page because today Diderik said to me "I want to participate in the Crockett Cup Tag Team Tournament with Greetzel please sign us up!!!" (He calls Geneviève Greetzel because he can't say French words very well he is Dutch.)

All those artificial chemicals are terrible for you, dude. You need to try Crimson Taurus. It's an artisanal, 100% organic energy drink that's distilled in small batches by craftsmen in Williamsburg. The guy who makes my beard oil told me about it.

I enjoy reading about these US based 'artisans'. Invariably it's not someone like the fourth generation descendant of John Lobb, but more like a couple of frat boys turned bums that went dark a few years after college and reemerged as beer or chocolate or fun socks artisans that have sourced the finest production methods and ingredients.

I would dearly love to see a kung fu or Rocky style training montage to cover the unexplained parts of their history

"Hey, it turns out we can melt down chocolate from Trader Joe's and mark it up 700% if we call it artisinal and single sourced!"

Well yeah, because the descendants of the original craftsmen all took the product down-market and lowered quality in an attempt to increase profit and support their carefree lifestyle.

Then some distant cousin finds out about their great-grandfather's history as a craftsman. Maybe inherits some tools and decides to learn how it was done in the past.

Then some frat boys see their freshman year roommate making artisinal crafts on facebook and say "I bet we could source most of that from china, cut a few of the expensive details, and then do final assembly in Detroit for some street cred and turn a tidy profit".

I guess Trader Joe's counts as single sourced. I mean, you did get it from one place

Y'all here poasting about their questionable bidness practices while they're laughing themselves to dat bank.

It's true. I picture them twirling their mustache tips in a sinister fashion as they laugh
