Elves aren’t Barbara Eden, dumbass

Elves eat trees, and like have like forest powers, and shit like that

Edit: You ruined it. :(

OK she just started making small talk with a dude in a Riddler outfit. Definitely not making eye contact.


#7649

At least it wasn’t the Joker.

Bus wi-fi, man. I can’t just leave a dupe post out there, eating up bandwidth and wumpus’ sanity.

I’m surprised it wasn’t Wonder Woman and Pennywise. I figure I’ll see about a hundred of each tonight.

The wife is outside giving out candy. It’s sweet to see little kids in their costumes. One was a jellyfish. Her costume was a clear umbrella with tentacles glued to it. They are as of yet untainted by memes and media. Princesses and witches. Of course a Hulk. But pretty tame. I had to come inside before I started tearing up. All of this innocence will be destroyed in a few years. Then they will be like us. So sad.

As opposed to?..


#7654

Well, someone’s never ridden the bus!

Anyone else saying “spoopy” instead of “spooky” tonight, just because?

Just me? Alright.

Not drunk, I swear.

I discovered what I think was a genius idea of cleaning the bottom of pots with sandpaper. At first it’s because I kept looking for uses for my shiny power sander but then realized hand-sanding pots is even better.

Any idea if there could be drawbacks? I am using very fine grit so I don’t see any scratches. I am wondering if the original pans have a special coating or something that I am destroying.

Just to be clear, I am doing the bottom, not the food side.

I could see micro-abrasions forming that might not be friendly to glass cooktops, but you’re gonna get stuff like that naturally anyway.

On cheaply made clad cookware I guess I could theoretically sand through a very thin layer of steel in time, but, um, I think it would take a lot of time.

Cleaners like Barkeepers Friend use abrasives as part of their mixture and are generally okay in small amounts and occasional use.


#7658

ok i see Amazon carries Barkeeper’s friend. I normally use stuff like… hmm farola, that powder detergent.


#7659

Barkeeper’s Friend is awesome, I’ve used it my whole life I think.


#7660

Hey, anyone know if it’s ok to use on glass cooktops too? The label says so but i’m a bit worried about scratching up glass.


#7661

I’ve never had any issue with using it on glass (Pyrex, etc.) dishes. I don’t use it on my soapstone countertops, but then, you shouldn’t use ANYTHING abrasive on soapstone. It scratches if you look at it funny.

Tried it. Works good. A++ would ask for advice again.

Woohoo!

Just heard a random Meat Puppets song on the radio that I don’t think I’ve heard in maybe twenty years. Love those guys.
