    On space exploration celebration day, is it wrong to celebrate 72 year-old Buzz Aldrin punching Bart Sibrel?

    Not “news” per se, but the dairy by my house sells their entire selection online and ships anywhere continental US.

    [url<][/url<] I personally recommend the dill havarti, bacon cheese curds, smoked gouda, and the olive cheddar. Cracked black pepper cheddar is also a great burger topper.

    This site should be renamed [url<][/url<]. As per checking now this domain name is still available. Hurry, guys!

      I’m just amazed no one has created a “What cheese are you eating RIGHT NOW” thread yet.

      It’s unjust to not have cheese as a top level domain. [url<]http://techreport.cheese[/url<]!

      • 2 years ago

      Wife and I are both searching daily. I don’t think LEGO realized how high the demand would be for this set.

        • superjawes
        • 2 years ago

        I try to search daily, but my wife apparently has her alerts set up, and she’s actually calling stores on possible delivery days because she wanted it to be a birthday present for me.

    Is it really happening? Are we past peak RGB?

      • smilingcrow
      • 2 years ago

      Just as we may be past peak GB after Brexit occurs; will the last one out turn of the (RGB) lights.

      • Neutronbeam

      You’re fooling yourself if you think that.

      The reason why it’s quiet–TOO quiet–is that they are luring us into a false sense of security and then BAM!

      RGB LED wrist rests, earbuds, belts, toothbrushes and toothpaste, napkin rings, hair gel, socks, jock straps, toilet paper, cheese and thousands more RGB LED items–they are all being prepared carefully, hidden away where we can’t see them in deep underground warehouses, being transported across the world by silent, massive blimps. THIS will be remembered as the good old times, before the empire, before the RGB LED apocalypse!


      Wait…who’s knocking at the door? Seems to be some some sort of weird, multicolored lights outside the front door…can’t make much from the window angle. Probably the police asking about something–those lights must be from the police car. Yeah, that’s it.

      Better go answer the door. Opening door…wow is bright out there, like a rainbow in your face.

        Forensic analysis attributed the fatality to a RGB laden LandShark …

    [quote<]They're in: your stories about cheese on apple pie @[/quote<] Family recipe for apple pie with a crust that includes shredded cheddar cheese in the dough. It makes an excellent pairing with the apples.

      • Chuckaluphagus
      • 2 years ago

      I will sometimes substitute out some of the butter in the crust for bacon drippings. Also an excellent combination.

        • blahsaysblah
        • 2 years ago

        Bah, you both ruin a good classic dish for no good reason. If you’re bored or in crisis, leave the poor apple pie alone. It did nothing to you.

        Its apple pie, not cheddar apple pie or piggy apple pie. You take a mouth watering bite of delicious memories and get glass shards instead, that’s what cheddar and bacon fat are. destroying good childhood memories.

        edit: to be clear, go visit parents, says made your childhood favorite, try it. do you like it? i just tried something new. double/triple sucker punch. arg!!!!!
