We had maple bacon ice cream at Michael Simons place in Cleveland, Lola Bistro. I don't do dessert much but it was good.

I tried a maple bacon donut from our local "artisanal breakfast pastry (toroidal) shoppe" and didn't like it.

Does anyone have a good explanation why the Mac Pro Stand costs $999? I did a bit of research, but...well...the entirety of that research consisted of me watching a Hitler rant parody on the topic so now i feel i need to do a little bit more.

A high end VESA-compatible monitor arm (highly adjustable gas spring with good fit and finish) might cost as much as $300

So if you instead "think different" and design your own mounting standard, you can make people buy a $200 adapter to connect.

At that point, if people are going to be paying $500 just to use a fricking monitor-dongle...why wouldn't they just double the budget in order to buy a less-adjustable stand for $1000?

I mean, if you need any more adjustment than the stand offers, then you are looking at it wrong.

do folks stand up for themselves in real time anymore or just complain on social media after the fact?

It’s just you. Some cheeses, however, smell like they look like people.
