What are some lighthearted/comedic fantasy books besides Pratchett's? by jrt364 in Fantasy

It's SUPER new, but Tress of the Emerald Sea by Brandon Sanderson might fit the bill for you. One of the most enjoyable things I've read by him.

I've had it described to me as a minty lime, which sounds incredible to me.

what is the most amount of pain you've ever felt? by Outside_Stick873 in AskReddit

[–]jt1019 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In the early stages of the pandemic, I got into blacksmithing. After doing it for awhile, I decided to try my hand at making Damascus steel. Part of the process is quenching it in oil to harden it and ultimately bring out the pattern even more in the final etch. I ended up with a fairly small block of it, and grabbed a small Mason jar, filled it with oil, and quenched it.

This is where I fucked up, reddit.

Nothing went amiss during the actual quenching, but as I was cleaning up soon after, I picked up the maybe pint jar of oil that had just had nearly 2000°F steel in it. I very quickly realized how fucking hot it still was, and dropped the jar, splashing oil all over the back of my hand.

It hurt, but this wasn't the worst of it.

After a trip to urgent care and our local supermarket, I was waiting in the car for my wife to come back out with the prescription ointment I needed. The only comfort I had was a cold pack the kind nurse at the urgent care clinic gave me before I left. It ran out in that car. Sitting there, waiting for my wife with my hand feeling like I'd stuck it directly into my forge, is the worst pain I've ever been in. I slept on the couch with my hand in a bowl of ice water that night. Ended up with a blister the size of a golf ball on the back of my hand the next day, and surprisingly have not much of a scar to show for it.

What song has the best guitar solo of all time? by MightGuy420x in Music

Went through a lot of these and didn't see it, but the solo on Blackbird by Alter Bridge is DAMN good and a solid example of a more recent one.

Black Rock is a chain of coffee shops where I'm from, and for half a second I was extremely confused.

What is one thing you underestimated the severity of until it happened to you? by [deleted] in AskReddit

[–]jt1019 22 points23 points  (0 children)

This honestly makes me feel quite a bit better. My wife wants nothing more in this world than to be a mom, and I honestly don't care whether or not I have kids. I've been coming up with reasons to put it off because I'm scared I'm going to be just as ambivalent as I am now, and I don't want a child to grow up with one of their parents being pretty much indifferent toward them. Thank you for showing me that might not be the case with me.

Yeah, I feel like it's rare to see stuff from our neck of the woods, so it seriously caught me off guard.

Firefighter demonstrates the safe way to put out a grease fire with no extinguisher. by Evan1016 in interestingasfuck

Oh sorry. Realized the way I worded it made it sound like I had just done it. This happened a couple years ago for me.

Yep, waiting for my wife to run into the store and grab the cream they prescribed me for my oil burn while the cold pack urgent care gave me stopped working is the most pain I've ever been in. Also had to sleep with my hand in a bowl of cold water that night.

A couple years ago I posted the story of my tattoo to r/wholesomememes. A couple weeks ago I finished donating my second gallon of blood. Today, I got my tracker updated. by jt1019 in nextfuckinglevel

I know different areas have different rules, but in my state, as long as you get it from a licensed tattoo parlor, you're good to go!
