Wanna trade for my W-patterned crouton?

well the juicero itself was bad because it was $700 for an over-engineered IoT bag squeezer, and the bags had drm, could only be purchased from juicero, and it turned out you didn't even need the machine to get the juice out of them.

the knockoff lets you press whatever fruit you please, but is somehow even more expensive, and there's a ton of people claiming theirs broke, or their order was never fulfilled in the first place. i came across the indiegogo because someone was selling one on a norwegian marketplace at a 95% loss.

i can see the appeal of a juicer that doesn't get dirty if you're really into drinking juice, but neither of these machines justify their selling price. personally i'll just stick to buying cartons.

those other instances would also have to run versions of postmill released prior to february 2020

also i have to conclude no one is reading the intermediate markdown being sent to the server, as i have yet to be banned for my discarded aviation joke about 'airbussy'

no it's worse, that shit will cook your guts, and all we can do is take the word of penny-pinching appliance manufacturers that the shielding they chose is sufficient

also when i was like 12 i watched a ton of tv programmes where they blow stuff up, and it turns out microwave ovens will do that to themselves if you decide to heat the wrong thing

ethernet cables are very cheap and you already had success in replacing one of them, so i think replacing more of them would be a good place to start.

i've only used the ethernet over power stuff once and it was dreadfully slow, so it sounds to me like you could be running into limitations with those. but it could also be that the cpu on your router is being saturated if you have a cheap and/or crappy one.

i am being somewhat hyperbolic, like my frustrations with the horse controls and the pig lunging sequence are obviously terrible reasons to conclude the game is not good. but they are legitimate frustrations nevertheless.

i feel this. it hasn't even been a day into 2023, and i've already breathed in plastic fumes by accidentally placing a pot of creme fraiche on a hot, ceramic stove while making lasagne

Shame you have such exclusionary policies. I would like to discuss motorcycles, but I am not a gentleman; I am a crouton.

Carbon fibres are bad for aerodynamics and longevity. I'll be boycotting your company until you make car parts out of crouton.
