    a meal prep app for single men called “grillfriend”

    this is too good, i’ll kill you if you steal it.

    the problem is this enforces heteronormativity & gender roles. i guess you can avoid this problem by expanding target audience. then it’s like tongue-in-cheek or something.
    Cut out all these exclamation points. An exclamation point is like laughing at your own joke.

    I approve the pun, but I think the problem of gender targeted meal prep is bigger than heteronormativity. Don't men and women mostly eat the same stuff?

    yeah, it doesn’t make much sense to target genders at all but i’m pretty sure gender targeted meal prep is a thing. it’s just based on stereotypes of gendered nutrition goals. (men wanna bulk up, women wanna lose weight)

    fwiw i got this idea cuz my bf and i meal prep for each other when the other’s busy... i texted him with recipe, and “i am your grillfriend” and the lightbulb went on. lol

    our goal is just saving time and money.

    A program that scans your conversation and based on various audio cues like word velocity, intensity, range, dynamics, and such, composes musical accompaniment.
    Most of time, when people ask why something terrible happened, they don't realize they are looking for someone to blame.

    A nightclub shaped like a giant whale, called "Melville's Dick". The DJ will always be introduced as Herman Moby. The hard part is going to be finding a highly skilled bartender/manager with a peg leg made of scrimshawed whale bone.

    Instead of darts, we'll have a harpoons. I'm undecided on whether they should be barbed darts without fletchings, or actual fucking harpoons and hay bales with a dartboard pattern spraypainted on. For some reason I think there would be more legal issues with barbed darts, so I'm leaning harpoons--but they're getting their own little side alley within the joint.

    The interior won't be some tacky nautical themed shit with line draped on the walls and rafters, needless life preservers decorating the walls, but there will be a fucking captain's wheel behind the bar and the handles on the top half will be draft valves. I ain't stupid, That's a no fucking brainer. Even better would be if all the handles were valve handles and you could spin the damn thing to dial your brew.

    Instead the inside will be made to resemble the night sky, without light pollution. The walls will be dark and illuminated with little light runners, just as much as is needed for safe navigation. Same for tables and chairs. It'll be like walking into a field of stars only the constellations below the horizon are tangible.

    Imagine floating in a sea of endless night, with Captain Ahab awaiting your drink order.

    And a DJ blasting some block rocking beats.

    And the only place in town to play harpoons.

    Heavily caffeinated apples
    What's the difference? It's just soda, bro.

    You can get near there by dumping caffeine into apple cider. My best stimulant mix involved pomegranite juice mixed with juice based energy drinks and topped off with a square of 70-80% chocolate. You can get a lot of studying and coding done on that mix. It's a variant on the crunch-time diet my dad used to use: diet pepsi and a box of Hostess Ding-Dongs. Personally, I think it's an upgrade--better chocolate.

    My personal breakfast pick-me-up beverage is a concoction I've developed by combining the key aspects of such drinks as, A White Russian, Thai iced tea, and Bullet Proof Coffee.


    The process to make the drink follows as thus:
    Steep 2 bags of Earl Grey tea for 3 minutes.
    Add 2 pats of butter and stir.
    Add 1oz of Kahlua, 0.5oz of heavy whipping cream and 2 packets of Stevia, or whatever sweetener you prefer.

    Mix and enjoy.
