National Just Because Day Shortbread


Sous vide garlic and olive oil pork tenderloin briefly seared directly over a ripping hot chimney starter. Just because.

Very cool to see frame time reporting on other sites, and that HotHardware writer is quite handsome.

I think the beard, mustache and glasses are all fake. Also, we expect graduation pictures–you have been warned.

I was a 40-year-old graduate of a community college, and I didn’t allow photos (let alone actually go to the ceremony). But we went out for an amazing dinner the following weekend. Had a big ol’ 18 ounce ribeye and a baked potato the size of my head.

I do have a photo of the diploma, and that’s all I ever cared about. πŸ™‚

As for GloFo suing our pals at TSMC, we here at Intel shill central have Samuel L. Jackson on retainer to deliver our response if GloFo foolishly decides it wants to sue us: https://youtu.be/T-K8qi_AoXI
