I was WAITING for that plate to be spun super fast or thrown, but I can't say I am disappointed.

This plate and cup combo would not survive more than 1 minute in any household that I've been in. If it gets prettier when it spins, it's bound to die.

They actually make a version with a wooden saucer for those of us only semi-civilized. Maybe I will wait till they make the cup out of plastic.

I do think it’s unnecessarily nit picky to correct things like this. But are we really still at the point where it’s “woke” to acknowledge that not every person on the internet is a man?

Edit: nope I’m wrong. Not unnecessarily nit picky. That was literally the person being referred to. Of course they should be able to object if someone’s calling them the wrong thing.

2

u/radicallyspalding Dec 08 '21

I appreciate your feedback, and here is my response:

  • The joke is that's a little "woke" to be pedantic in issuing corrections about speech, particularly when correcting the perceived gender of a theoretical cannibal
  • There's nothing wrong with being woke, and anyone who tells you otherwise is gaslighting you
  • Being pedantic about speech is a feature, not a bug: disrupting speech patterns helps you reevaluate what you are saying and can help eliminate accidental biases

And I just mansplained all that to you because humans are flawed

2

u/abarelybeatingheart Dec 08 '21

I think the reason I considered it legitimate correction is that it wasn’t in reference to a hypothetical person, it was in reference to a specific person who jokingly implied they’d tasted human meat.

And actually I just looked back at who that user was and it turns out it was the same person who corrected the use of pronouns. So I stand corrected. It wasn’t nit picky. They were correcting someone who misgendered them. I think everyone has the right to politely correct that sort of thing if it bothers them.

u/Megan_BAKchatPodcast Dec 09 '21

It's the only meat I eat. Has to be ethically sourced though, I only eat free range. It's best if they were outside a lot for work as well. It adds something to the flavor. Honestly, office workers are only good in stew or maybe some Indian foods but even minced or turned into sausage office worker is just not that great.

Farmer is defo the best meat overall and I always found a delicious irony there but they are harder to catch so... I have gotten very good at my office worker crock pot meals. It's actually hilarious because I actually work in a terrible office with terrible people and it's me greatest joy to feed a "Karen" to all the other office bitches every year. All I have to do is write a dear John to her partner and a salty resignation letter to HR and no one even looks for them... it's so easy. Every Xmas another Karen "quits" and no one blinks, but they all love my homemade Chilli like it's the best thing ever. Lol

Office workers do make for tender meat, almost like veal except do much more humane... I'm only cooking up a middle aged bitch... veal is a newborn innocent little animal.

It's almost chili time again 🔪 🗡 🍴 🍽 🍖 🥓 🥩

u/_-Saber-_ Dec 08 '21

Nah, it's not great. I bought a piece of meat in Rome to make a steak from and it was... OK. Tasted a little sweet, iirc?

I have no preconceptions about types of meat, I'd try dog or cat or worm burger or whatever with no qualms but horse just isn't all that good.

Imo, of course.

10

u/UpUpDnDnLRLRBA Dec 08 '21

That is probably a vestige of the days when horses were used widely. Killing and eating a horse would have been a last resort because they were too useful.

7

u/MuffinSlow Dec 08 '21

This, FAR to valuable to eat back in the day.

Horses are still very much eaten often, even in the states, depending on culture.

Unfortunately a lot of ppl who sell horses to auction think they are selling their horses to another owner/stable.... But more often than not, the people buying will slaughter and sell the meat without the seller ever knowing.

4

u/UpUpDnDnLRLRBA Dec 08 '21

more often than not

Are you saying the majority of horses sold at auction are slaughtered?

3

u/MuffinSlow Dec 08 '21

That was probably an over estimate, my bad!

But it is very prevalent within horse auctions (many different types), and a lot of sellers don't know this.

That being said, it is not illegal, and if you sell the horse then you don't really have the right to know what the buyer does.

1

u/stupid_name Dec 08 '21

The best way to know for sure is to put the horse down yourself and call the horse hearse. An auction is always an unknown. If you take a horse to a common auction you've already determined that it has no value to you. A sanctioned Thoroughbred auction like Keeneland etc. is a different matter but there's still no guarantee of destination.

2

u/WikiSummarizerBot Dec 08 '21

Barrier-grid animation and stereography

Barrier-grid animation or picket-fence animation is an animation effect created by moving a striped transparent overlay across an interlaced image. The barrier-grid technique originated in the late 1890s, overlapping with the development of parallax stereography (Relièphographie) for 3D autostereograms. The technique has also been used for color-changing pictures, but to a much lesser extent. The development of barrier-grid technologies can also be regarded as a step towards lenticular printing, although the technique has remained after the invention of lenticular technologies as a relatively cheap and simple way to produce animated images in print.

For those interested in this style of animated effect, there have been some published books containing similar including of the running horse.

It is known as Barrier Grid Animation, or commercially as Scanimation with many books on Amazon.

You can also print templates online to create your own. In the past I printed the vertical bars to transparency sheets, then print the "image" to regular paper. Then by sliding the transparency back and forth you create the same effect.
