Please look at the contestants for the upcoming season of The Bachelor and laugh with me.
Show us your cloning lab, The Bachelor.
The first man on the left is the original Big Bachelor. And the two after him are his clones with his dominant and recessive genes respectively (Also known as Solid Bachelor and Liquid Bachelor.) And the last man on the right is Venom Bachelor, who has no genetic relation to the Big Bachelor but was surgically altered to look like the Big Bachelor and was brainwashed into believing that he is the Big Bachelor.
so if you’re the bachelor are you allowed to request exclusively blondes or something
I think we’re back to plastic being nigh unbendable.
It’s an inert substance, manufactured from petroleum yes but with 0% water. Being an unnatural material (in the sense you’re not going to find “plastic ore” in the earth’s crust) it’s probably invisible to the 4 elements.
Keep in mind: an airbender can no doubt manipulate a plastic jug filled with air, and a waterbender can manipulate a plastic jug filled with water. But it’s doubtful they’d get much traction trying to (say) manipulate a smartphone. Better for a metalbender to go for the electronics inside.
Having said all that… can plasticbenders arise? I mean Toph invented metalbending, which everybody knew to be impossible.
Maybe it’s just an attitude change away.
So apparently crude oil can contain some water (thanks @ralfmaximus ) so waterbenders could probably manipulate that, and air benders could do gas, and figure earth benders could do it all bc there’s probably some earth material in all of them. But processing it into plastic seems liable to remove all water and also likely doesn’t have any air, leaving the question if the remaining material has enough in common with earth for an earth bender to mess with it?
Does crude oil contain water? I thought it was just all muck.
Depending on the type of plastic it could be any bender bc plastics are made from coal, salt (earth), natural gas (air), and crude oil (water), so really the only ones left out are fire benders.
I wonder what kinda bender could manipulate plastic?
Plastic is invented in the ATLA universe and a bunch of non-benders from various tribes are suddenly revealed to be long-chain-hydrocarbon polymer benders.
my high school sociology teacher was somehow convinced that if he left a big mac on the counter for the whole year, he could reheat it and eat it at the end of the year, and so he did this, and for the last week he called in sick

Mrs. Porcupine and I were doing research to buy a new mattress for ourselves. (The Tuft & Needle that you guys recommended for one of my children worked out quite well, but probably isn’t the best choice for us.) Based on what Consumer Reports says, we have tentatively settled on the Charles P. Rogers Powercore Estate 5000. If you have derogatory information on either the brand or the model, now would be the time to speak up.
For reference: things we care about:
On the firmer side (not actually her preference, but it’s easier to cushion one side of a firm mattress than to firm up one side of soft mattress)
Doesn’t hold heat
I sleep mostly on my back; Mrs. Porcupine sleeps exclusively on her sides
Provides sufficient stability during, uh, vigorous activity.
Controlled air mattresses were out due to puncture risks from dog and cat.

I’m not sure what this sounds like but it isn’t a mattress

got a stainless steel wok, it’s pretty neat, not non-stick of course so you have to take that into account but I’ve never regretted buying any stainless steel cookware, it’s robust and lasts forever and it’s surprisingly light and easy to clean.
Hard Same, stainless steel is a wonder material for like 99% of applications.
stainless steel is amazing, we don’t even deserve stainless steel
Oh, that reminds me. SpaceX is developing a heavy-launch spacecraft made of stainless steel.
Cast iron spacecraft next!

Alice has a secret which if Bob knew he would want to kill her and Bob has a secret which if Alice knew she would want to kill him. Mallory knows both secrets and hates Alice and Bob so he sends letters informing each of them about other. Alice and Bob fight, Alice kills Bob, Mallory tips off the police, and Alice is arrested. Has Mallory committed a crime?
Not as far as I know.
Hmm. Foundation and Empire thus far not grabbing me as much as the original Foundation did.
Will you finish the trilogy?
I’m only partway through F&E thus far, but I do intend to finish it. As for the last book, I imagine I’ll probably read it at some point, but I tend to bounce around a lot between different authors, so it might not be for a while yet.
I thought Foundation was by far the best and the later sequels unreadable.
The prequels I remember being a bit better (I did finish them), but it was a long time ago when I was like 11 or 12.

Actually acknowledging the pros and cons of anti-pandemic policies means
1) Acknowledging that the pros exist, that preventing the out-of-control spread of covid-19 is a really important goal.
2) Acknowledging that specific trade-offs are unique to specific policies, not an undifferentiated mass of badness (or goodness).
For example, if you’re objecting to widespread body temperature surveillance because it has limited efficacy on a disease with significant asymptomatic spread and, while body temperature per se isn’t usually too sensitive, the precedent it sets for surveillance of physiological data is dangerous, I’m inclined to listen (in fact, for this particular instance, I’m pretty much with you).
On the other hand, if your position is that all social distancing is bad because fates worse than death exist, I’m going to land somewhere between eye-rolling and angrily vague-blogging about you.
