software moaning 

love when software you trust with your digital intimacy, like browsers and operating systems, give you extremely vague release notes that just include meaningless text or a link to the latest major release's marketing copy. we lost actual release notes long ago.

salt potatoes, lazy version

get a pound of small, smooth potatoes (if you have to cut too much off of them, they'll absorb too much salt)

put them whole into an instant pot with 6c of water and 1c (yes! really!) of salt

low pressure, 1 minute cook time, then let rest sealed for 20 minutes before opening

the strong brine makes water come out rather than pushing it in, you get this really nice creamy fried/baked texture with a potato cooked in water

drench in butter

I kinda think the ‘sexy lamp test’ doesn’t account for female characters who’s got powers and how, the excuse goes, they clearly aren’t a sexy lamp because look how they saved everyone with their powers!

So, I propose the sexy drone strike instead. This is where if you can call in a drone strike and achieve the same result story wise, then the character is still a sexy lamp, but with powers.
