    [–] I made a free alternative to Photoshop, that is used by 7 million people. Ask me Anything! menchon 13 points ago in IAmA

    How did you grow your audience? Ads, posting in photoshop forums, word of mouth? All of the above?

    [–] Is ‘Foreign Policy’ a credible source for geopolitics news? menchon 7 points ago in geopolitics

    Le Monde diplo's quality is very uneven, and despite the name the outlet is unrelated to the reference daily newspaper. Guest writers can be really good, but boy some of their regulars really just start from their far-left leaning perspective and assemble a story from there, facts or context being largely irrelevant. Overall it is very Parisian niche rather than "French".

    [–] Alphorns by the Matterhorn. Today Switzerland celebrates its 829th anniversary (1291). menchon 2 points ago in travel

    Yup some sort of cricket. They weren't that noisy when we were there, I'm kind of surprised they came out so loud on the video.

    [–] Has anyone visited Uzbekistan and what's the process? menchon 2 points ago in travel

    I went to Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan and can only recommend David, the owner of Stantours (Google the company name, their site should not be hard to find). Got all the papers sorted in a breeze. UZ is definitely worth the trip (except Tashkent, very soviet). Bukhara, Samarkand, Khiva, and the Aral sea were all differently awesome.

    [–] Eggplant Curry in Coconut Milk (with recipe) menchon 2 points ago in MeatlessMealPrep

    Great! Why microwave the eggplants though? Is it similar to salting them in order to remove the bitterness?

    [–] My very first attempt at making classic French Tart au Citron. It turned out soo good, rich, sweet and lemony :) menchon 1 points ago in FoodPorn

    Custard, isn't it? For the baked version, next time try 3 eggs+juice of 3 lemons (+grated rind) +100g each of butter/sugar/almond powder. Bake at 180-200C until it looks right (30-45' depending on oven).

    [–] People who had covid-19 or know someone who did how bad was it? menchon 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Friend had it, mix of flu (painful muscles) and pneumonia (dry cough) for two weeks extremely tired all throughout.

    Grandpa (94) had it, mild cough for a week then literally passed away overnight when it got worse.

    Colleague's parents and in-laws caught it, 3 out of 4 are now dead.

    [–] Oh deary me menchon 1 points ago in memes

    This is a photoshop job from a Swiss stand-up (Thomas Wiesel). It was part of a batch he released on his FB page about a week ago.

    This thread explains how he lost control over it, thought the typos and bad PS job should be a giveaway, but how people are so eager to mock the idiotic Trump crowd that they virally bought into it.
