Really? Try selling your used Uniqlo Down Jacket to any recycle shop and let us know how much they will buy it from you

Should you really be buying Made in China sweatshop clothing anyway?

It can be great, if you don't overdue the butter. And Fuddrucker's and other chains are good with that.

It's a good idea though and something that in the hands of a real cook can be great.

Really, why not just have a person doing it?

They're trying to slowly automate most jobs and then have most people on UBI, sitting at home consuming state-approved entertainment like the people in Wall-E.

This displays culinary ignorance on the part of the creator. If you look at the ingredients of sandwiches in most countries in the world, the only dairy product that works well with (with certain types of meat) is cheese. Once I took a Japanese chef to task for spreading butter inside his pastrami sandwiches.

BK is doing it wrong; look at Fuddrucker's and how they lightly brush melted butter onto the buns before briefly grilling them. They're fantastic.

It's already bad enough that we have fake CG blood, now they want fake CG gunshots? How about don't allow live rounds on a set.

Posted in: Hair from culled Hokkaido deer made into jeans See in context

I am somewhat amazed that Japan would have a problem making cloth from deerskin or deer hair.

Not really, hair isn't exactly suitable for cloth, especially denim. Denim is best woven from cotton, or the insidious stretch poly-cotton blends. Some mills in Okayama have had success make wool-cotton and linen-cotton denim blends as well, but deer hair would be challenging, and frankly gimmicky. Better to make hair-on-hide patches and leather jackets with it. Most leather patches used on Japanese denim brands these days are deerskin anyway.

Or, if ghosting is not your thing, just do the 'fade out', and eventually the girl will think it's her decision to dump you.

This is the best option. Have you ever tried dumping a girl outright? Mama mia, it's a flaming dumpster fire.

To be fair, there haven't been many "far-left" looney's killing indiscriminately in recent years.

I guess the left supports Islam until there's a terrorist attack. Then they just turn a blind eye.

Posted in: Japan, U.S. business leaders call for diversified supply chains See in context

In a joint statement, the business councils said "onshoring," or bringing production back home, is "neither realistic nor desirable,"

Today the NYTimes had a huge article saying how climate change will make long-distance logistics more difficult than ever. At the same time the globalists are saying it's "not desirable" to on-shore production and instead try to exploit cheap slave labor in SEA and China.

Which one is it? Is big business just greedy? Are the chicken littles just fear mongering?

Unlike China, the US doesn't try to claim chunks of ocean that historically had never been theirs in the first place. Not to mention create artificial islands for military purposes, despite promising at the beginning that they weren't for military purposes.
