A captcha but it's not a captcha, it's just a fwd of one, so you're actually doing a captcha on a completely different site than you're on.

I'm really surprised that there apparently isn't a "not made with prison labor" symbol for products, verified by a third-party group similar to the Non-GMO Project or the Vegan Society

When Americans buy products that say "Made in the USA" they expect the money to go into supporting local, well-paying jobs, not fueling private prisons who utilize slave labor. This is the desire regardless of political alignment. People need the ability to make an informed decision

Brain: "This coffee brick. It is made of coffee."
Brain: "Before, it was liquid and nice."
Brain: "The pot is steel, do not microwave."
Brain: "Induction burner on low."

90 seconds later: *SPOOT*

Turns out if you've frozen your coffee in a steel stock pot in a sub-zero(F) kitchen, a seal is formed. Application of heat creates a coffee canon, lobbing an eight pound shot of frozen coffee about a foot in the air.

Brain: "Enemy on left!"

And this is why I punched the coffee. Because that helps.

@nivex Years ago, I was unofficially assigned to support the most difficult person in the Networking group, someone who despised change. He didn't want his cheese moved, even if it simplified his workflow. He had his habits!

I learned that the only way to survive delivering the news of moved cheese was to AGREE with whatever wacky reason he had to HATE the cheese move, "but since that's what we have to do, let me show you new habits" and we were fine.

Step 1: agree with the customer.
