    [–] Grilled Mac n' Cheese Sandwich with Crispy Bacon BrassMunkee 1 points ago in FoodPorn

    Yeah you can’t go wrong with some eggs, biscuits and gravy, hash browns, eggs Benedict etc. You have to find places that do a real hollandaise though or there’s no point. Our average shitty chain restaurants will just slop a mixture of mayonnaise, mustard and lemon juice. It’s terrible.

    Yeah certainly, we don’t have it the same way, but I would love to try it sometime. I’m think we have couple pubs around that have a traditional menu, but I’ve never been.

    [–] In a video game, if you come across an empty room with a health pack, extra ammo, and a save point, you know some serious shit is about to go down. What is the real-life equivalent of this? BrassMunkee 3 points ago in AskReddit

    Where I work, we used to mess with people that were being promoted. Kind of hazing basically, it was always when people were being promoted to a management position, the other managers would get in on it. We’ve gotten much bigger and smarter so the pranks have toned down a lot over the years.

    One memorable one, guy is being promoted into management. They pull him into a meeting with his manager and the department head, HR too. They had printed a fake web browsing report, that basically listed thousands of hits a month on a link to the current manager’s company profile picture. “We want you to know that we care about you, but we are concerned about this. Why are you looking at my photo everyday?” Going on about how even aside from how strange it seems, he should also be using his time more wisely. He was hard-line denying the whole thing and freaking out, saying there must be some technical error that is refreshing that. They get through several pages of this report, until that last page which his offer letter for the promotion. Everyone in the room was really close and knew each other well, so it sounds way worse than it was, but I can definitely see how dangerous doing something like that is.

    I’ve been able to promote alone, which is usually the case when someone is being promoted to higher tier in front line positions, but not management. The most I did was make my employee sit through a meeting where we discussed her career path and whether she was interested in moving upward at all. I made it seem like it was so far outside her reach and would take a lot of time, but damn it, bless her heart, she took it by the reins and confidently committed to trying. I then revealed the offer letter and said “good to hear, because you start today!”

    I honestly don’t think I am ever going to do that again, there’s so many ways it can go south. I was proud of her and she earned the promotion, I think I’d like to just make it about them and celebrate them.

    I can’t say I’ve had it prepared correctly, but when you compare it to Canadian bacon, that really just does seem close to plain ham to us. Grocery stores will sell Canadian bacon in packages and they are basically processed ham circles. Sometimes you get stuff like on an eggs Benedict at a restaurant, that is Canadian bacon.

    Really in texture and flavor it feels closer to ham than bacon. Little smokier and chewier than a traditional holiday ham like the one you linked but that’s about it.

    Your streaky bacon is so ubiquitously bacon to us, that without the salty, smokey flavor and the fat, anything less intense can seem like plain ham when compared.

    Well goddamnit after all this, I am eating breakfast for dinner tonight. Take care.

    [–] Nothing cool about doing JUUL BrassMunkee 1 points ago in teenagers

    Same dude, I’m 33, far from teenager. I’ll have to disagree with you though. Quitting cigarettes was immensely harder than quitting a vape. Different chemicals in a cigarettes, and different nicotine.

    I tried cold turkey on cigarettes and was losing my damn mind by day 9. Quitting vaping on another attempt was a stroll through the park after the third day.

    I’m by no means encouraging anyone to get into vape if they don’t have a dependency, there’s literally zero reason to do it. But, in my experience, quitting vape and cigarettes are nothing alike.

    [–] Grilled Mac n' Cheese Sandwich with Crispy Bacon BrassMunkee 1 points ago in FoodPorn

    It was a bad joke but that guy knew there was a difference between your bacon and ham. The joke is that it may as well just be ham, that is how inferior it is to American bacon.

    Not sure why he needed to drag it on like a petulant twat, that got weird. But, there you go.

    The conversations just aren’t natural. It’s not that extreme choosing beggars don’t exist, but the dialogue is too forced and hammy. “I’ll be home all day lol.” Oh ok lol as if sometimes people aren’t home all day lol, because I’m so relatable lol.

    Oh yeah. OP, this his the only post, and zero comments. 11mo old dormant account. Goddamnit.

    [–] What is something in YOUR life that is SUPER FUCKING AWESOME? BrassMunkee 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Oof I might be in for a wild ride then. I also drink a dose of zzzquil before bed after all the beer. It’s NyQuil but only with the sleep medicine. So I think I’ve got myself in a gnarly dependency on sleep assistance. I’ve never been “good” at sleep and have always been a light sleeper, easy to wake. I have tried not drinking at all a couple nights over the last few years and the zzzquil does nothing but make me groggy, and I can’t knock out.

    Keep saying I’m going to give this a serious go one day but I’ve been saying that since 2017.

    Also weed isn’t legal in my state, not even medical. So those options are harder for me. I don’t smoke at all and don’t know anyone that does so I don’t have a safe route for that.

    [–] What is something in YOUR life that is SUPER FUCKING AWESOME? BrassMunkee 2 points ago in AskReddit

    I feel like I need some time off work to try and jump off once and for all. It’s losing sleep I am concerned about. How long before sleep becomes easier without being drunk? Not sure if everyone has that problem with it but I just cannot fall asleep sober.

    Every online account you’ve signed up for, where someone could make money by stealing it from you, will require an ID to protect it from being stolen. Period. If they don’t, your account is at risk and can be stolen by pretending to be you when contacting customer support.

    Oh you use 2 factor authentication? Good, you should. It doesn’t protect you very much though, if you can ring a call center have it removed by some temp in the Philippines by answering a few basic questions.

    Your experience on the internet doesn’t mean anything here, no offense. That’s just your personal experience, doesn’t make you an expert. It wasn’t the same back then. Account theft is extremely common and one of the methods they use is pretending to be you when talking to the company. There’s money in this. I don’t know how lucrative a Facebook account would be, but video games accounts are stolen and sold all the time. Same with something obvious like your bank or PayPal.

    If hackers can sell it, or use your credit card with it, I guarantee the website will ask for your ID if they consider it suspicious. It is not rare. You just haven’t experienced it personally.

    It might be a long shot but this happened to my dad’s account. Back in like 2006 he signed up as Mister Hanky lol. When he tried to get it back, he had the same problem so he had to talk to a manager but they gave him the account back. His old credit card was still on the account that had his real name, so that’s why they did it. Worth a shot I think.

    [–] Twitter permanently bans Alex Jones and Infowars accounts BrassMunkee 2 points ago in technology

    Thanks for the calm reply. I know some of twitters users treat it like a public square, but I don’t know if it’s fair to call it that. It’s publicly traded but that doesn’t mean anything for this argument. It still has fiduciary duty to its majority shareholders. Being publicly traded doesn’t mean it has any responsibility to uphold public demands, unless meeting those demands are acting in the best interest of shareholders.

    Being my own devil’s advocate here, but I can see how creating something that becomes ubiquitous in everyday life can reveal unintended moral responsibilities. So when people talk about values, they are applying these values to situations where they aren’t legally required.

    Really, my comment was meant for the guy I replied to. I was pointing out the hypocrisy in his values, how free speech is so important to him, except when it’s being censored in smaller or more specialized communities, that’s apparently alright.

    It becomes even more absurd when Twitter didn’t even ban Alex Jones for speech, he was banned for streaming harassment. His fans don’t consider it harassment though because they agree with Alex Jones.

    [–] Twitter permanently bans Alex Jones and Infowars accounts BrassMunkee 5 points ago in technology

    So what exactly is the difference between Alex Jones’ forum and twitter? Why is Twitter a “public square” and the forum is not?

    Every argument you made in support of open speech without censorship can be made for why people shouldn’t banned from Alex’s forums. So with your line of thinking, you should be saying “fuck you” to Alex Jones for not agreeing with everyone’s rights express themselves on his own forum.
