    When paper went 200:1 I started selling mine, at 300:1 I lost interest and haven’t looked since. So detached from reality it’s mind boggling.

    If a kilogram is 1000 grams, why isn't a metric ton a "mega"gram?:confused:

    This intrigued me. I researched it. Calling a tonne a tonne is actually an accepted non-SI unit. The actual SI unit is a megagram - Mg.

    1Mg = 1000kg = 1 tonne

    SI -> International System of Units

    As big as Godzilla is, why is it they never seem to hit him with artillery? They only seem to hit the ground around him. And people say the A-team can't hit anything:rolleyes::D

    Forced perspective.

    He's so huge, they think he's actually way closer so they misjudge their aim/trajectory :p

    Whenever I buy beer at the grocery store they always say "Oh are you having a party?" I don't like it... I feel like they're judging me...

    I've seen your pics when in your youth. You were a baby-face back then. If I was the checkout clerk, I'd ID your arse too just to fudge with you.

    Early on during the quarantine I took a trip to the liquor store to stock up. Used a cart and even needed to use the little area underneath and where a toddler would've sat. Checkout lady rang me up without inquiry or funny looks. I suppose that's Wisconsin for you but it did make me wonder what it'd take for her to ask wtf I'm doing with all of it.

    When things started running out at our local stores like TP and meat. Is it bad that all I could think about is getting enough beer to make it through.

    I’ve noticed lately around our county that the selection of beer is not that great.

    I like pumpkin beer. I'm not embarrassed to admit it, I don't care what you think. But the selection of pumpkin beer has been really weak this year.

    Wife likes it too...usually gets Shipyard Pumpkinhead. But she recently found a chocolate beer she really likes, so not sure she'll bother with the pumpkin this year.

    I'm sure it'll be awful but I really want to try kraft's new creation, pumpkin spice flavored mac and cheese.
