  1. My buddy grows tomatoes and all sorts of crazy peppers (Carolina Reapers, Scorpions, etc.). He usually gives me a couple of "salsa kits" ever year with a bunch of tomatoes and peppers. I cut up a bunch of peppers for salsa without gloves on. Washed my hands at least twice during the salsa making process. Took a piss about an hour later and burned for about 2 days.
  2. One extension cord plugged into one outlet should not cause two different circuit breakers to trip...no matter how much current it's drawing. It sounds like you might have some double-wired circuits (i.e., circuits fed from 2 breakers).
  3. Sounds like a floating neutral. Do you have a multimeter that you could use to test the voltage across one of the non-working receptacles? When the neutral is not properly tied to ground, the voltage reference can fluctuate, and you can get lower than normal voltages. This could allow the lights to work, since they are low load and can normally light up at lower voltages. But once you turn the fan motors on, it could cause the voltage to sag low enough that nothing works.
  4. Seriously. Orange and mint sounds like a Wayne's World ice cream flavor.
  5. Cake is an icing delivery system, and I'll be damned if I'm gonna sit idly by while someone besmirches that noble cause.
  6. John Wick 2 and 3 are still decent, stand-alone, dumb action flicks. But if you're heavily invested in the story line, it gets a bit thin in both of them. But since I just watch action flicks for their dumbness, I still enjoyed them. I definitely don't think they were as bad as the Matrix 2 and 3.
  7. If Lisa Simpson had run, on either side, in the last 3 presidential elections, I'd have voted for her.
  8. Just wait until you hear her fake baritone voice. It's....unsettling. Especially once you hear the leaked recording of her normal voice.
  9. I would recommend a Sig P365 as a carry gun. Very compact with a high magazine capacity.
  10. I was at my local gun store the other day (not shopping...inquiring about an NFA transfer), but that is, by far, the emptiest I have ever seen the shelves and walls of that store. The cases and gun racks on the walls were, at best, 25% full where normally they are completely packed and replenished as soon as anybody buys something. And all the employees looked very tired. Apparently guns and ammo are being bought at the same rate as toilet paper and eggs.
  11. From what I can tell, the entire months of March and April have been cancelled in the USA.
  12. The funniest meme I've seen though this whole mess is, "Due to panic buying, Wal-Mart will be opening a 2nd register."
  13. I don't have coronavirus...or the flu. Doc says its probably just a run-of-the-mill virus. Still not going to work the rest of the week. In other news, the NCAA tournament will be played without fans in the stands. I think that is going to affect the players used to having lots of background noise, but I'm not sure which teams, if any, it will benefit.
  14. All the Minute Clinics around here have a 2+ hour wait for walk-ins. The first appointment I could get was for 2:30 (3 hours after I made the appointment). I wonder if that is related to COVID or if I just live amongst a bunch of sick mfers.
