Animal Crossing: New Horizons
"One central predecessor of life sim gaming was Activision’s curio Little Computer Person (1985), released on Commodore 64, Apple II, Amgia, and other systems, the brainchild of artist and technologist Rich Gold. An ex-pat of the San Francisco experimental music nexus, Gold had been key in developing the user interface for Serge Tcherepnin’s People’s Synthesizer before studying under Robert Ashley and David Behrman at Mills College. He co-founded and was a roving member of The League of Automatic Music Composers, pioneers of dense “networked” electronic music and among the first to expand computer composition from solo to group endeavor. He was also known for a series of mid-’70s durational performances he called Books in a Day: he would inhabit a gallery space for 24 hours and write an entire novel, pinning the pages to the wall on butcher paper. In later iterations, he would develop AI systems to aid in the writing process."

Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 cup butter (1 stick, 4 ounces, 112 g), room temperature
1/2 cup (100 g) white granulated sugar
1/2 cup (110 g) packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (130 g) peanut butter
1 large egg
1 1/4 cups (160 g) all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

1 Make the cookie dough: Beat the butter until creamy, 2 minutes. Add the brown sugar and white sugar, beat for 2 more minutes. Mix in the peanut butter and the egg.

In a separate bowl, vVigorously whisk together the dry ingredients—the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the sugar butter mixture.

2 Chill the dough: Wrap dough in plastic and refrigerate at least 3 hours.

3 Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).

4 Shape the cookies: Shape the dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Place the balls of dough about 3 inches apart on un-greased cookie sheet. Flatten in crisscross pattern with a fork. (It helps to dip the fork in sugar to keep it from sticking to the dough.)

6 Bake: Bake at 375°F (190°C) until light brown, about 9 to 10 minutes. (Remove the cookies from the oven and let cool in their baking sheets for a minute. After a minute, transfer the cookies to a rack to cool completely.

Note: For chewier cookies, bake at 300°F (150°C) for 15 minutes."

The mattress landfill crisis: how the race to bring us better beds led to a recycling nightmare
from Mika

"The development of roll-down technology – which allows mattresses to be packed into small, easily shippable boxes...."

"Theoretically, consumers can cycle between these providers for high-quality mattresses at no cost: a Wall Street Journal reporter recently calculated that if she took advantage of all the offers available, she would be able to sleep on a free mattress for eight years."

"'We've introduced a disposable mattress business model at a time when we probably should be moving in the exact opposite direction,' says Alexander."

"'Wherever waste is, there’s criminality somewhere.'"


"Allsopp and Scollick have visited the warehouses from which the scammers operate. It is common for workers to run the minute they see them, mistaking them for Environment Agency officials. (It’s the hi-vis jackets.)"

Folgers Crystals
was just wondering what flavor crystals were

"Folger's Coffee spent years, a small fortune, and three tries at bringing out a freeze-dried coffee that "tasted, smelled, and looked like fresh-brewed coffee." Each time, consumers voted thumbs down, saying, "It just doesn't taste enough like fresh-brewed coffee."
Finally, the third (and last) product development project and market testing was completed with improved, state-of-the-art, freeze-dried coffee crystals that looked and tasted like fresh-brewed coffee, and even real coffee aroma captured in the jar. It was discovered that the key target consumer group, freeze-dried coffee users, were accustomed to their instant coffee and really didn't know or like actual fresh-brewed coffee!
(Quoted from, without permission, "fair use" assumed.)
Known for the series of commercials that would show a typical place where brewed coffee might be served (restaurant, office, etc) while a whispered voice-over would say "We've secretly replaced their regular coffee with Folgers Crystals, let's see if they notice", followed by them (amazingly) not being able to tell the difference!
The FolgersCrystals effect in action:
A friend of mine was working "subversive XP" recently. Management insisted on full design documentation up front. My friend lobbied and argued to no avail, so he finally agreed. He sat down and cut-and-pasted totally random segments of design docs he had available, added a couple of diagrams, formatted it up and submitted it. Total time spent: one hour.
It was received so well that, ironically, his group was held up to the company as the shining example of how to do design docs.
That looks a bit risky to me. In an academic environment it would be plagiarism. -- JohnFletcher
{I read that to mean his friend copied his own design docs, so his only sin would be claiming to have designed up front what he actually documented after development.}
Note that, for a consultant, such activity would constitute felony fraud. You can go to jail for that. Very phunny.
You can go to jail for being lazy and horrible at your desk job? Puhleez! The nonsense passed off as knowledge these days!"
