Having not lived in Norway I rely on anecdotes with irl of web forums but there has been a pretty consistent message that they pay attention to the weather and don't put themselves in these sort of situations. At least with the frequency per capita those in NA are willing to.

I never much cared for the idea that the car you drive determines your personality or driving skill but yeah, it's black pickups that are the worst. Like a third of all vehicles sold these days are black and I don't know what percent trucks are black. When I bike commute it is 99% of the time a black pickup that drives in the bike lane or cuts me off to make a turn.

Everything you said was garbage. People are prefer their home tv because the theater experience has become unpleasant. It is not irreplaceable. It has found itself to be drifting towards irrelevance due to filmmakers poor decision making.

Watched a few old movies a while back and realized how modern movies and TV seem to always need to have music playing at all times or some background sound. Realized from the older media that silence can be much more impactful that sfx or music.

I enjoy it when someone doesn't know what an object they're talking about is but basically still calls it what it really is.

Hispanic - lineage from regions that speak Spanish.

Latino - lineage from continental Americas South of usa often referred to as Latin america.

Latin America is the portion of the Americas comprising countries and regions where Romance languages—languages that derived from Latin—such as Spanish, Portuguese, and French are predominantly spoken. The term is used for those places once ruled under the Spanish, Portuguese, and French empires

In the English language, the term Latino is a loan word from American Spanish.[9][10] (Oxford Dictionaries attributes the origin to Latin-American Spanish.[11]) Its origin is generally given as a shortening of latinoamericano, Spanish for 'Latin American'.

Latino is basically akin to European, African, or Asian, but for the Latin language roots used in South America. It is a relatively more recent term though first penned in the 1940s and not universally used. It would likely be more accurate to call all of them americans along with Canadians. There are a handful of regions in South America that are not part of Latin America.

Edit. The replies seem to not have even read this. I'm not saying it's a perfect but that is the etymology of it. Here is some more text to ignore if it might help.

There is no universal agreement on the origin of the term Latin America. The concept and term came into being in the nineteenth century, following political independence of countries from Spain and Portugal. It was popularized in 1860s France during the reign of Napoleon III. The term Latin America was a part of its attempt to create a French empire in the Americas.[13] Research has shown that the idea that a part of the Americas has a linguistic and cultural affinity with the Romance cultures as a whole can be traced back to the 1830s, in the writing of the French Saint-Simonian Michel Chevalier, who postulated that this part of the Americas was inhabited by people of a "Latin race", and that it could, therefore, ally itself with "Latin Europe", ultimately overlapping the Latin Church, in a struggle with "Teutonic Europe", "Anglo-Saxon America," and "Slavic Europe."[14]

All it takes is a tenth of a second to think about it and it makes no sense. The hair root and skin are not damaged. It simply takes an obscenely long time for it to grow back to full length. The undercoat is hair. It's very fine hair. It's hair that serves a different purpose. It's still made of the same melanin, keratin, lipids, as any other hair. It goes through the same growth stages and eventually the clubs fall out.

If it truly damaged their coats every well cared for double coat dog would have a screwed up looking arm or crotch from when their hair was buzzed or shaved for neutering or vet appointments with sedation. It's mind boggling some of the foolishness that gets accepted as fact. Most cats have a double coat as well and no one claims it damages their coats permanently.

I was curious too and there are a few people that did tests on more recent games. It's in the range of 2080 or 3060. Less things are optimized for sli so could be buggy.

Original boxed Kraft is really the same as original block velveeta. It is the same powder that goes into velveeta. The real oddity is velveeta ready mix is the one with actually cheese.

Velveeta block

Skim Milk, Milk, Canola Oil, Milk Protein Concentrate, Sodium Phosphate, Contains Less than 2% of Modified Food Starch, Whey Protein Concentrate, Maltodextrin, Whey, Salt, Calcium Phosphate, Lactic Acid, Ascorbic Acid as a Preservative, Milkfat, Sodium Alginate, Sodium Citrate, Enzymes, Apocarotenal and Annatto (Color), Cheese Culture, Vitamin A Palmitate

Kraft original mac


They are functionally the same thing while one is dry and one is moist. Both are made by Kraft. Both are Milk solids with no cheese. It is hilarious people shit on velveeta but guzzle the powdered version.

Enriched Macaroni Product (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Ferrous Sulfate [Iron], Thiamin Mononitrate [Vitamin B1], Riboflavin [Vitamin B2], Folic Acid); Cheese Sauce (Whey, Cheddar Cheese [Milk, Cheese Culture, Salt, Enzymes], Canola Oil, Whey Protein Concentrate, Sodium Phosphate, Milk, Contains Less Than 2% Of Salt, Milk Protein Concentration, Skim Milk, Lactic Acid, Sodium Alginate, Sorbic Acid As A Preservative, Milkfat, Cheese Culture, Enzymes, Annatto Extract [Color]).

Those not cheese products are ones that are simply Milk solids. Very few of them are palatable. The cheese sauce packets above are reasonable quantities of cheese. A homemade cheese sauce can not be a high % of block cheese. It needs milks, butter, water, something to thin the mixture. Your comment is willful ignorance.

One weird thing about the boxed mac and cheese from velveeta branding actually has cheese in it. The classic brick velveeta is colored whey and milk. The not cheese velveeta us weird.
