      Probably because you could charge >=$2/glass more for $0.25 cost just because people will want to post their beer foam art to social media.

        The people that would post foam art on social media are the same people who drink beer in bottle form and miss spell the word light.

          I can’t decide if you’re overestimating one group or underestimating the other.

            more like disowning a segment of one and encouraging them to belong to another.

    AMD has published it’s assessment of the CTS-labs vulnerabilities (surprise! they’re real):

    [url<]https://community.amd.com/community/amd-corporate/blog/2018/03/20/initial-amd-technical-assessment-of-cts-labs-research[/url<] Fortunately, a BIOS update looks like it will fix most of them. The remaining one (Chimera) looks like it'll need some more work.

      But, CTS said they were impossible to fix, that’s why they didn’t responsibly disclose them? Could they have been lying?

    [quote<]KFC launches 'triple cheese burger' laden with mozzarella and cheese @ dailymail.co.uk[/quote<] I'll only eat one if it's also laden with chicken [i<]and[/i<] meat of a domesticated bird that's not a turkey or any other bird other than a chicken.

      Parrot burger?

        It’s an ex-Parrot.

          Nah, he’s just pining for the fjords!

            • Growler
            • 2 years ago

            This parrot is no more!

            • chuckula
            • 2 years ago

            He has ceased to be!

            Well, you can’t blame British Rail for that.

        • tsk
        • 2 years ago

        Now that’s something I’d be willing to try.

      Fine, more for the rest of us!
