Cinnamon will burn human skin fairly easy if you spill it on you. Not surprising it would be more effective against smaller, more fragile creatureses.

Inquiring minds might want to know that ants detest cinnamon. It burns their little feet.
that made me go wtf, is that true?
are their tiny feetses hurt?

Yes, I've used it as a deterrent before. It works well, in my opinion.

Well... Endoskeletal and exoskeletal beings tend to have a few notable differences when it comes to topical applications.

So, I just read that cinnamon burns ants... and since I put sugar and cinnamon on toast, I was wondering what an ant would do if it wanted to haul away a sugar crystal that was powdered with cinnamon when the aroma probably assaults their chemical sensors too, and as I looked at it from the magnified viewpoint of that hypothetical ant, I got this image of a dwarf attempting to put a !!bucket!! into a stockpile. My chain of thought just ate its tail.

We are also out of cinnamon. Things are shaping up badly, more than usual because the lack of fuels.. the queues for gasoline last for weeks and numbers to thousands of cars, you can see some marked with numbers like 8 thousand or 12 thousand and some.... is madness and some food stuff is starting to be on shortage. Thankfully nothing really important for the general public, unless you count cilantro important, which I do.

Made it six years but I finally got smacked by the "Win10 randomly updates and deletes all Windows apps, including the start menu, powershell, and file explorer" bat.

Thankfully it took less than an hour to run a reset install and re-add my programs, but still. Fucking Microsoft.

I tested this yesterday by putting some cinnamon powder on the back of my hand. It took about 5 minutes for it to start feeling like a beginning of a sunburn.

This kind of shit is the reason I've stuck with Win 7, because it seems like everything they've done after that is kind of shit.

For the past few years, most of my job has been fixing the problems Windows 10 created. I dread the technological horror that will be 11.

11 sounds like a step towards apple-ifying windows, tbh.  Creating arcologies between the user-bases.

What is meant by Appleifying? Iím not sure what specifically youíre referring to, slowing down older systems each update?

I think is "shoppifinding" the whole environment into a closed one (wall in it) and making everything obscure and arcane to the user. This also has the perk for them to artificially make systems obsolete as they please.

Apple however, as much as I dislike it, is pretty successful at this crap because they have been like that from day one and have a pretty competent quality control over their own software most of the time.

Meanwhile mocosoft....

W10 hid directX 12 away from older systems, now it's auto-hdr and direct storage that are supposed to lure you in...

I love how journos are like: "improved look" instead of "oh wow look another alegria inspired bright mess -.-"

Basically that is happening with everything.... see games overall, the prettier they get, the more hollow, stupid, repetitive and nickle and dime they get, not to mention rushed and bug riden... But "look those 4k 120fps graphics!!!"
