Time for new !

I'm Jordi. expat living in , . I can say expat instead of immigrant 'cause I've had a super-sheltered and comfortable life. Nothing dreadful has ever happened to me.

I like , , , , and old because I'm old (not that old).

I also do software stuff because of course.

I work on assessments and , which I want to call cause we need that word again!

Is the music I chose for appropriate? It was the first thing that came to mind.

@JordiGH

The lap is not preserved for all homeomorphic transformations of the body, so the lap is not a topological feature of the body. In this essay I will

(I’m a rusty mathematician, if you have a correction to my wording please be nice)

Does your lap exist while you're standing up?

American recipes 

@JordiGH my mom and her sisters still laugh about their mom's recipe cards (from the 1950s) that had things like "one medium can of beans" and "one half ketchup bottle"

I have a sudden urge to translate her lyrics so I can show everyone how her songwriting was a bit more profound than what she does now.

Boy, this takes me back. I kind of miss when her music actually talked about important things.

We have a link at work that downloads all emission data that we have for a particular company. It's got an initial hardcoded date of March 11, 1776. I was wondering why that date.

Thankfully, there's an explanatory comment in the source code:

"Start date is the day the Watt steam engine was reported operational by Aris's Birmingham Gazette. This is so the date range will include all possible GHG emissions."

Oh.

American recipes 

Okay, so what I'm learning is that although American recipes use weird units, what they really mean is, buy this packaging of this brand that you can find everywhere in Burgerland and that's the real standard unit, but we're going to pretend abut some other bizarre unit of some generic brand and won't mention the actual thing.

The heck is a quart of strawberries? Am I supposed to liquify them to measure them?

@Shufei Hey, weren't you looking for some vertical writing? Looks like heard your pleas.

I'd like to inform everyone that you can stop saying we're 7 billion humans.

We've been closer to 8 billion humans for quite some time now, probably will hit the mark in a year or two.

Holy crap, that seems to have worked. A quick taste test and I proclaim it, "not atrocious".

Will have to cool overnight for the final verdict, though.

@JordiGH every single recipe needs to be converted to grams.

Huh, 30 grams. That's one packet? And 180 mL of rootbeer? Uhhh... this is 135 g of vanilla pudding powder and its recipe calls for 750 mL of milk, hm the proportions are pretty close.

Well, here goes, lotsa boiled rootbeer incoming.

Dangnabit, how much is an ounce? And do they mean fluid or solid?

Show thread

I see nothing inherently wrong about boiling rootbeer except that it will go super-flat, but does that matter for a pie??

Show thread

I want to make this pie recipe:

tasteofhome.com/recipes/root-b

But the problem is I couldn't find instant vanilla pudding mix. The only vanilla pudding mix I found requires boiling water. Surely I can't boil rootbeer, can I?

Also, what the heck is whipped topping? How do you say that in French? I just got Cool Whip instead.
