A) All boxed mac & cheese pales in comparison to proper, baked mac & cheese.

B) If you're going to slum it with the boxed stuff, it's Velveeta Shells & Cheese FTW.

Of course it does. My like of it is completely a nostalgic thing, and I recognize that.

Disagree re: the shells & cheese. But I'm sure this is just a factor of what we grew up with.

The problem is that blue box of shit doesn't contain any actual cheese. So of course it's cheaper than making at home legit Mac and cheese. You can't compare the two, and that blue box shit shouldn't be eaten by anyone. It's very bad for you.

I'm having trouble grasping that people would spend $100-200 on a Simple Human trash can. Surely a trash can can't be worth that, right? Yet it seems like they've got a monopoly on the quality trash can market.

What is so special about those trash cans that they are worth so much? Perhaps I'm a plebe but as long as my trash can doesn't leak it is all the quality I need.

I suspect they make breakfast and pay the water bill for you. But I need a new trashcan that I can open with my foot.

i don't get the thought process of the individual put in charge of naming winter storm systems. Here we have a fairly substantial system that will really affect the Northeast US, what should we name it? Ah, Nemo! Yes!

I shower like 3 times a day so if it'll pay my water bill I'm all in.

With all this boxed mac&cheese talk I would like to share my favorite drunk food (that I have not had in 15+ years).

Take some ground beef. Toss into it a healthy amount of breadcrumbs or panko, a big couple of squirts of Sriracha, an egg or two, some S&P, and a couple health squirts of ketchup. Mix. Fry and break up into chunks.

Boil the noodles from two packets of Ramen. Drain and do not use those flavour packets. Toss the noodles in the fry pan with the meat. Enjoy.

Yes, that was a 4am meal many a drunken night for young Piob.

That is a super intense drunk meal.

Generally I eat on bacon when I'm good and drunk.

Gross--velveeta should not be consumed by human beings (cheese-flavored powder is ok though)

I found this model by my apartment's trash area last week (end of month moving day...there were some decent lamps, a microwave, and a toaster sitting there too). I cleaned it up thinking I might try having a "real" trash can (I use paper grocery bags under the sink for all of my trash). The thing is very nice. Solid, no-fingerprint "stainless", and the inside is removable so you can just carry it to the trash and dump instead of pulling the bag. The step-mechanism is fairly robust (won't break like some cheap cans) and has nice soft-close and prop-open features.
So...I am conflicted: They make a fancy-assed trash can, but they are also very expensive for a garbage receptacle. I also have no idea how fingerprint proof stainless works...is it a coating that will eventually wear off and make the thing look shitty after a few years?

I don't think I want it. I don't have a good space to put a round can in my kitchen, and I enjoy the fact that right now, my garbage is not visible since it is inside of a cabinet. So if either of you want to come and pick it up, it is yours (but I'm not going to find a big-ass box and mail this thing).

Apparently it is based on a system and they have the names planned out far in advace, like 20 years or something. I remember reading something about this not too long ago.
