When Amazon subscribe and save first came out, i did it w/o paying too much attention to actual size.
I got like 2.5 gallons of hand soap refill bags im still using like 5 years later cause the overall price/oz saved $.03
But i also got 6 liters of cleaning spray concentrate... where 1tbs + liter of water fills a spray bottle... Im not even through the first concentrate bottle after 5 years....
This is a stupid graph. They both fluctuate a decent amount if you look at them on your own, it just doesn't look like it on the combined graph because the number of times "fluctuating" has been used is so much smaller than the number of times "constant" has been used. Harder to see fluctuations in a smaller value.
EDIT: Since this appears to be the top comment, I'll post OP's separate graphs, taken from his post further down.
Seems to me that both vary by approximately the same amount relative to their proportions used.
EDIT 2: Thanks for the gold!
EDIT 3: /u/herptydurr pointed out that even when you blow each graph up to the same size, the usage of "constant" has changed more over time. But you wouldn't be able to tell that from the original graph OP put in the link since the scales are so different. My original intent was more to point out that using the same axis for data sets that differ by an order of magnitude is a poor way to communicate trends. This data would make more sense with 2 y-axes.
For the curious, here's the solution:
>containing up to a 15% solution of water, seasoning (salt, spice, modified food starch, monosodium glutamate, nonfat dry milk, maltodextrin, gum acacia, flavorings, fractionated coconut oil), soy protein concentrate, sodium phosphates, spice extractives.
Those two pictures look nearly identical with F.lux. I had no idea what I was supposed to be seeing until I disabled it and saw the blue stripes.
> the manager in charge of food cost is always on my ass about 'wasting chicken'
Your manager is an idiot then. This is an industry bible.
As far as JUST meat goes, waste on whole chickens is like ~50%. Of course thats as far as meat is concerned, you can still throw everything else in a stock pot, but you shouldnt expect even 2lbs of meat from a 4lb chicken.
A lot of times those custom mailboxes just surround a regular mailbox. Like, the bass fish has an ordinary mailbox in his mouth.
It's also a well known marketing trick that Dan Ariely described in his book (Predictably Irrational, great read if you have time). It's a lot like the trick subscriptions will use to turn you into a "bargain hunter". I'm paraphrasing, but he was trying to buy a subscription to The Economist and noted that the price for a web only subscription was something like $50, print only was $120, but the web+print was $120. They know no one wants the print only, but they put the price there to make the print+web option seem like a great deal. You now see it and compare the top 2 options, print only, or print and web, and think that the $120 p&w option is a great deal and buy that one, when the reality is you would have just chosen the $50 web only version if that middle option didn't exist.
They will do this on restaurant menus sometimes, too. You think to yourself "The blah blah is $59, I would never pay that. I'll have the $39 porterhouse instead." Chances are you could ask for the blah and they'd tell you the kitchen ran out, because no one buys it and they don't expect anyone to, but it made the $39 porterhouse look cheap by comparison which is what they really wanted you to buy. They tricked you into making a false comparison the same way a retailer will say 80% off MSRP (which we just made up to make it seem like a deal).
Maybe this store doesn't expect to sell the 8 packs and they don't even have a lot of them in stock. But they are getting you to think the 12 pack is on sale so you buy that instead, which they have a lot of and that's the normal price.

As an Alaskan resident who contributes regularly to Streetview using Photosphere on my camera, I've considered applying to rent one of these (Alaska has so much undocumented wonder, and so many people want to see it, but it's very expensive to visit) but I'm worried about some locals desiring to not be on camera.
EDIT: Realized I may make Alaskans sound like crazy coots, which is not the intent. I edited my comment appropriately. Alaska has the strongest privacy laws in the US, all the way to the Constitution level. This is the reason, for example, that the Anchorage man who shot up an airport in Florida had his guns returned to him after turning himself into the FBI with clear mental health issues and seeking help (before going on a spree.) This draws a very certain type of individual who wants privacy and things left off the internet, which I can respect. Nearly any Alaskan you will ever meet is very kind and nonviolent, but privacy advocates are definitely up here in a higher concentration.

It was the magic, perfectly-shaped object that allowed you to carefully fill in the teeny-tiny spaces of a make-it-and-bake-it suncatcher with teeny-tiny colorful plastic beads...as opposed to sprinkling a fine layer of them over every surface.

Funyuns are a delicious onion flavored snack. I don't know if they are regularly available in Australia, but you can buy them on Amazon or other places online. I'm guessing the shipping costs would make this not worth it though, but I'm also not a huge fan of them. I think they are good once in a while, but some people really love the fuckers.

Average inflation is 2%
That means that, every year, your money is worth around 2% less. Flipping that around, we can say that every year, your money is worth on average 98% of what it once was.
So, we can multiply $4,300,000,000 by 0.98^1000 to find out what that would be in today's dollars.
0.98^1000 is 1.68*10^-9. So, multiplying $4,300,000,000 we can get our answer:
Which is, coincidentally, just enough to cover a tin of Roland Flat Anchovie fillets on Amazon, priced at $7.19.
Luckily, this would mean that Fry has 5 cents in Current Dollars left over to play with after purchasing this tin of anchovies from Amazon. Converting back is easy: now we divide $0.05 by 98^1000, and we can find that Fry has the following amount left over in Future Dollars:
In one of his books (probably On Writing), he said that busy people have to learn to read in one or two page sips during moments of downtime, or else they end up never having enough time to read anything.
I kinda took this advice to heart and used to carry a novel around with me at the gym to read between sets, like some kind of mutant offspring of /fit/ and /lit/.
This will get buried but in King's 'On Writing' he emphasizes over and over that good writers must spend many hours per day either reading or writing. I love baseball and would never read a book in the stands, but he's a better writer than me and this photo is simply a snippet of the man practicing what he preaches.
Buy those and please try to find who the fuck asked.
I assume they aren't talking about biodegradable plastic. You can make straws similar to plastic using only plant starch/fibers.

I got my memory foam mattress topper from Costco! Love this thing.
But the great part about Costco is that you can return things much later. I bought a chair there that broke after 3 months, returned it and the second one I bought (for a full refund! What, what!), and Costco stopped selling that brand because they got enough complaints/returns.
So, I may not update my reviews on Amazon, but Costco takes the quality of the stuff they sell seriously.
But seriously, I've had this mattress topper for 3 years and it's AMAZING.
100% humidity is, at any temperature, the dew point where moisture from the air begins actively condensing into water. The highest recorded dew point in US history is 88 degrees (source: https://www.wunderground.com/blog/weatherhistorian/record-dew-point-temperatures.html ) so it seems unlikely that you've experienced a 95+ degree dew point in South Carolina.
Maybe you weren't quite at 100% relative humidity at 95+ degrees? There's an inverse relation between temperature and relative humidity, the higher the temperature the lower the relative humidity, so while it's possible to experience a 100% relative humidity day on cool, 40 degree, foggy day, it's almost impossible as temperatures go above 80 degrees.
Seriously. I goto 3-4 major festivals a year like Electric Forest, Bonaroo, Hulaween, and Camp Bisco (plus a Bassnectar gathering or two). This bag is the TITS.

- The osprey hydration system is second to none

- it weighs less than 2 lbs empty

To be fair vaping can cause popcorn lung.
So I guess the choice is take a chance on popcorn lung or have a much greater chance at getting black lung.
edit: See snopes for more details. Little is known just yet about vaping compared to an already existing century of smoking. Vaping so far has shown to be less risky as a whole comapared to smoking, but we cannot say conclusively if it is risk free on your lungs.

I'm guessing this is a lower cost option to the tiny little glass bottles they used to put in MREs (which you can get on amazon (of course)).
Cameras are so cheap now it's worth getting real ones for peace of mind. You can get a Blint XT2 2-camera kit for $180 regular price but I've seen them as low as $100 for two on sale. They're completely wireless so you just screw them in, set up the app, and call it a day.
That's why you kill the person while wearing a full-body hazmat suit ($9.99 on Amazon), melt down the weapon in an affordable DIY furnace, throw everything in a wood chipper you rented with cash and a fake name in another state, melt the chunks in acid, get a boat, and pour it out all over international waters. Bring the wood chipper too, you're not getting any kind of deposit back.
Now you can live with the knowledge that if anyone ever solves the case, they've totally earned the right to put you away.

Anyway those are the 8" ones which I have and they're the best set of dykes i've ever used. You can get 6" ones which may be better for stashing on a boat or in a fishing bag but I find 8" is good enough for my shop use.
I'm not sure if those are the same as the ER ones, I honestly can't remember if they were 8" or 6" but they were dykes and we used them a lot.
2nd best ring cutter in the business? Leatherman raptor sheers. Great for soft metal rings and makes such a clean cut jewelers can fix it easy.
If you where going to have a set of pliers for the shop I'd have: 8" channel locks, 6" needle nose, 6" linemans pliers, 8" dykes. That should cover a lot of applications and probably about $150 worth of Knipex. But then again about $150 money saved in gas going back and forth to lowes to get a better tool.

Well you see I'm just a dumb highschool student so the reason I bought them was to... Give them away I guess? There was no real thought. A friend text a chat I'm in and said they could be purchased for like 2 cents a piece. Earlier in the year, someone had given away hundreds of USPS stickers, which were actually free. But I decided I'd do one better and get pizza tables. The first box of 1000, I took on one of the last days of school, and as kids flooded into the cafeteria for post exam lunch (I had been in there already, as I didn't have an exam the last block and could have left if I'd chosen to), we handed them to people. I ended up giving the rest of the box to the kid who helped me, saying that I had no reason to take them home as I had an additional 1000 at home. I took the final box to school the next day, and handed a few of the sleeves like the one in the picture to some people. I also gave one to my sister who gave some to her friends at her school. This school year, I took some to school and managed to give more away from the roughly 350 that I still had, and am now at about 200-250, give or take.
Bonus fact: I showed them to my computer science teacher, and he thought it was funny. Fast forward to the beginning of this year, and it inspired this app that I made. If you have an Android phone, it's free and no ads. It was made purely because of my stupid antics.
I need these too! I found them!

Well $122 for 5 pounds comes out to approximately $1.54 per ounce. Buying individual babybels on amazon comes out to $1.67 per ounce. So if you're planning on eating 5 pounds of cheese it's cheaper to buy in bulk.
Also, the prices could be inflated, ya know "list price" vs "sales price." A quick look at Amazon shows the first Harry Potter (illustrated version) with a list price of $39.99, but they're selling it for $22.79. Wouldn't at all be surprised if the library's calc is using the "list price" in their calculation.

No, Stephen King is a die hard Red Sox fan. Mentions it in his book On Writing. But he also always carries a book everywhere, so he probably just got bored during a commercial break or something.

Dude... calm down. That is very unlikely, the airbag is designed to aim for your chest. Even if you're unlucky and the airbag hits you in the face, it's just as likely that your glasses will fly off your face instead of breaking. Roughly 30% of people in the US wear glasses, i highly doubt the manifactures would make their airbags dangerous to 30% of people without some type of warning.
I hope you don't read my comment as demeaning, i'm just trying to make you feel a bit better :)
*Edit: Also wanted to add that
1: If you have plastic lenses (i'm pretty sure plastic lenses are the most common today) then they would shatter in much larger, less sharp pieces. And some materials used for lenses, such as polycarbonate are very durable and could likely survive being hit by an airbag.
2: I found an article on WebMD about a finnish study on wether airbags can cause eye injury, according to that study people with glasses are no more likely to get eye injuries than those without. Here is the WebMD article i think you might find it interesting.
There are different ways to calculate gray values from a RGB image to arrive at a grayscale representation. You can just average out the red, green and blue values, but that's not the preferred way, or the way that, say, digital cameras, TVs, or quality software like Photoshop do it (or colour spaces that have a luminance channel like Y/Pr/Pb, Lab, etc).
This is because, according to our perception, the amount of green makes much more difference to how light or dark we perceive something to be, and blue makes much less difference. So for the Y channel (Luminance) we calculate a weighted average, giving more weight to green, slightly less to red, and very little at all to blue - blue makes very little difference to how light we perceive things.
A naive "saturation" control would just average the R G B, but any quality piece of software (eg Photoshop) should do it according to the relative luminance standard by default:
Y = 0.2126 R + 0.7152 G + 0.0722 B
Calculation must be done in linear space not gamma corrected.

Contrary to popular belief being a soldier in the First World War was often characterized by long periods of waiting around not doing a whole lot, and a lot of soldiers engaged in crafting things like this to pass the time and take their minds off the stress of being at the front. These aspects of soldiers' lives are discussed in Tim Cook's new book which focuses on Canadian soldiers in the Great War, The Secret Lives of Soldiers. I'd highly recommend any of his books, he uses a ton of primary sources from men who were there which really brings the history to life.
