Maintenance, obviously. The clue’s in the name, Yoink :p

For serious though, no idea.

The message changed from "brief maintenance" (iirc) to maintenance about a thousand bajillion hours ago.

Honestly good communication and, as far as I can tell, good backups.

Oh gods, my willpower has failed me. What have I done?! They were just sitting there at the supermarket looking so damn sexy, how could I resist? I'd been so good...

I want to know what these products are, I have a vague idea of what crumpets are despite being American and thus genetically engineered to be ignorant of foreign cultures, but on the right, is that... cheese? Never seen cheese like it but it makes sense.

Those are the crumpets, not cheese.

You stick the crumpets in the toaster, they have a very crunchy base, and those holes on the top. You put butter on, and it melts into it. Toast just doesn't compare, although I think crumpets are way more unhealthy for you to eat all the time than toast. They're one of those "incredibly unhealthy but totally worth it" things, but you need to toast them until they're crunchy and melt butter into them.

They're probably the most worthwhile British food you could go and look for. They make muffins taste like sawdust in comparison.

BTW Yoink, Aldi sells 6 round crumpets for $1.

Do you wear a sea shepherd beanie around most places?
I mean, I can't think of anyone who would be particularly against it, but heck.

I can. You wear that onto the Faroe islands, you're getting kicked out again. Sea Shepherd is registered as a harmful terrorist organization there.

The vast majority of Faroese exports, almost 95%, consists of fishery products

Yeah that makes sense.

One thing is fishery exports, but the Faroese also have the traditional Grindadrap, which is when they corral and kill pilot whales for meat, which is then distributed among the populace in a community effort.

The meat is strictly forbidden from being sold or used for commercial purposes, the pilot whale populations are carefully monitored to make sure they're not being endangered by the practice, and the whales themselves are carefully handled to try and make the ordeal as humane as possible. After all, if the whales disappear, they're not only losing out on a centuries-old tradition that's held very dear to most Faroese, but also an important source of food. The Faroe islands are hilariously unsuited to pretty much any kind of farming, so really the only other thing they've got is the sheep which are too few and too valuable as an export for the Faroese themselves to eat.


But no, they're actually all crass, thick-skulled barbarians who murder "the famous and intelligent Calderon dolphins" (not an actual animal) for sport and glory. As such, they've been very popular targets for groups like Sea Shepherd, Greenpeace and PETA. Eventually they got fed up with Sea Shepherd coming in and vandalizing public and private property and harassing people, so they were registered as a terrorist organization and any direct affiliation with the group will land you an immediate deportation.

A few of you might actually remember the Calderon dolphin thing, it was this viral email thingy that was making the rounds a long time ago. I think the original, horribly written and completely nonfactual website is still up and running...

I have it on good authority that the Calderon dolphin hunters are all located in a mysterious farmhouse in Potswin, Kansas.

Potwin.  Not Potswin. :P

Also, I live in that general neck of the flyoverland USA. No dolphin anywhere to be found. Clearly these are itinerant dolphin hunters.

Personally, I would suggest that if you are targeting this area, that you point the finger at the Kochs instead, as they are the resident evil billionaires, ready and willing to prove their evil devotion to the god of mammon, but that's just me. :P

Well, it's basically the only beanie I own (I've no idea where the other two are and they don't fit my head nicely anyway) and my bad hair day stretched into a bad hair week which is currently well on its way to becoming a bad hair month, so... yeah I've been wearing it everywhere lately. :P

I would be rather shocked to another anyone disapproving of it. Not that I personally care all that much about the whales (I mean, we routinely do far worse things to animals right here on land, but that's another story), but I admire the 'Shepherds for the way they risk life and limb, defying the law for what they believe in.


BTW Yoink, Aldi sells 6 round crumpets for $1.
Aldi scares me. Thanks for the tip, though!
Not sure where the nearest one is... I know I used to pass one on my way to work, but that was a few suburbs away.


PSA: crumpets are indeed still as fukken delicious as I remember them being. Perhaps even moreso! The brand of jam I chose to accompany them may have something to do with it, too.
