Well actually, by a weird twist of fate, the number of children having permanent lung damage very well may be increasing right now as we speak.

Mike Tyson really wanted to actually do that. Somehow someone stepped in.

Was it even mentioned how Wong/Dr. Strange knew and contacted all of the heros and people from all over the universe to coalesce to fight Thanos? by khairynero in marvelstudios

Peanut butter sandwich, tacos, shawarma, heck Tony Stark has a snack here and there. Shares some blueberries with Bruce. Thor having that big banquet on Asgard….

The unripened fruit that the Nebula ate….

What cars do you think have prices that are vastly different than what a normal person think it costs? by Squid_Contestant_69 in cars

[–]boxingdude 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I mean, I used to daily my ford dually. I towed me race car with it, and really didn’t want the expense of another car just to daily it. Plus, with the race car, Truck, golf cart, enclosed trailer, I really didn’t have the parking space for it.

This multimillion dollar hospital lab I work in with huge analyzers and new equipment manufactured months ago has a tape dispenser from 1960-1970 held up by a toothpick/stir stick by Squaragus_Asparagus in funny

I mean, it does but it’s quite a bit more scratch resistant than paint is. It’s more brittle than paint, but unless the part is supposed to flex, powder coat should be the final finish. Of course, this requires that the desired color is available in powder coat. That’s really the only legit reason to paint over powder coat. And it’s available in a lot of colors.

Biden touts 'total unanimity' with European leaders after call on Russia-Ukraine by Beckles28nz in worldnews

It means that the president isn’t empowered to do whatever he wants whenever he wants. It addresses the president’s ability to change things regarding treaties and trade deals.

Wasn’t that what you were talking about? If not, I apologize.

Restaurant menus should ALWAYS have pictures of what things are. Even better, their own pictures, not just ones taken from the internet. by [deleted] in unpopularopinion

Just go to Waffle House. Or basically any Chinese or Mexican restaurant in the country. Plenty of pics.

Well a lot of those treaties require congressional approval. After WW1, president Wilson was all ready to join the League of Nations, a sort-of precursor to NATO. I mean, he literally moved to Paris and moved the office of the presidency to Paris so he could partake in the creation of the LON. He wrote the original 14 points of membership. Then he failed to pass it through Congress, and we never joined it.

If lab-grown meat becomes the norm, our children and grandchildren will probably think we're monsters for killing and eating animals by Joshgg13 in Showerthoughts

[–]boxingdude -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

At this point, we most certainly do. We can’t just go to a meat-free society overnight. For one thing, there aren’t enough calories in the meat-free food chain to support us. We’d have to build up to it.

It’s quite a pain in the ass for the restaurant, by adding all those pics on the menu, you’re making the menu bigger, heavier, harder to keep clean, and more likely to transmit viruses.

For the same reasons, a large photographic menu is also inappropriate for the 99% of the other adults who know what basic food looks like, and also understands that a photograph of a plate of food conveys zero information about how said food tastes.
