It is physically impossible to exceed the 70-pound domestic weight limit for a small flat rate box. The interior dimensions (8 5/8" x 5 3/8" x 1 5/8") are ~75.333 in^3. If you filled the box with pure osmium, the densest substance known to man, it would weigh ~61.48 lbs.

Just want to add to this thread that one thing that makes this tactic so effective is the golden mean fallacy, or the urgency by which the Mild Moderate Middle seeks to find "reasonable common ground" as the first step in resolving a dispute. twitter.com/AlexandraErin/…

“Everywhere Babies” offends these people. Insidious. Ominous. And sadly, frighteningly, the tip of the iceberg. Not hyperbole when I say I wouldn’t be surprised if they eventually close public school and public libraries altogether twitter.com/DWUhlfelderLaw…
@hels There really are endless wild facts about Chuck E Cheese and I will add one more, which is that the founder was ALSO inspired by the pizza + pipes trend of the 1970s tastecooking.com/life-death-piz…

For some reason this, my best thread and also possibly Twitter’s best thread, is getting traction again, and I don’t want any of you to miss out twitter.com/hels/status/13…

Just going to point out that part of why people think crime is so bad is because media reinforces that narrative by using percentage when raw numbers would actually be appropriate because the base is so low. twitter.com/tsrandall/stat…

The subway shooting is more proof that the most effective thing you as an individual can do to prepare for violence is learn how to apply a tourniquet

Eun Hee Chang, a home health aide, was stabbed by two men trying to take her purse in Elmhurst this Saturday. She's had to continue her physically strenuous job since the attack - this fundraiser is to help her rest and heal gofundme.com/f/help-the-vic…

Yesterday we met the father son duo who may have saved Eun Hee Chang’s life. They too got stabbed while defending her. Tonight we met Chang. In what is common Korean behavior, Chang is blaming herself, doesn't want to attend follow ups w doctors & cops bc it'll get in way of work

sometimes I try to explain to my students that the audiences for 90s daytime talk shows were essentially proto-Twitter and this post-LA uprising clip really nails that

i don’t understand why white ppl would want to use AAVE when they have terms like “watch it buster” or “oh for pete’s sake”, or my personal favorite “why i oughta”, these are so fun to hear

Here’s @jimleff’s original review from his “Eclectic Gourmet Guide to Greater New York City” jimleff.info/difara.html
Speaking of Chowhound, I meant to spotlight this last week, but its parent company announced its shutdown scheduled for this coming Monday (3/21). Here’s Jim Leff on that news jimleff.blogspot.com/2022/03/a-farm…
Prior to this, Di Fara was largely a neighborhood favorite with the bulk of outsiders coming thanks to @jimleff’s “Eclectic Gourmet” guidebook and posts on Chowhound, which Leff cofounded in the late ‘90s but which was in peak form (IMO) 2000–2006
This is the column that opened the floodgates and took Di Fara from somewhat-hidden gem to certified pizza hotspot twitter.com/EricAsimov/sta…
This obit does a great job of putting into context Dom DeMarco’s and Di Fara’s significance not only to the pizza world (in NYC and worldwide) but also to the early online food scene twitter.com/chrisecrowley/…
Idea for a television anthology series: "Roommates." Each season is based on a real-life pair of college roommates who both go on to be famous for different things. Season 1: Edward Gorey and Frank O'Hara. Season 2: Peter Wolf (from the J. Geils Band) and David Lynch

When I backed the mytranshealth.com kickstarter, I just thought making a nationwide directory of trans-friendly doctors was a good idea. I had no idea 7 years later, ~14 states would be trying to get antitrans legislation passed and that it could become so vital for so many

Never worked for Ivan Reitman, but I had a pretty surreal encounter with him back in summer '03. They were doing the Central Park outdoor movies, and Ghostbusters was playing one night. It's one of my favorites, and Reitman was set to introduce it, so of course I had to go. <1/>

Fun little trick in the Sunday New York Times crossword yesterday: the central theme clue was "The better of two sci-fi franchises", and regardless of whether you put Star Wars or Star Trek, the crossing clues worked

Nice article about ‘Twee’, the shop assistants, Sarah, tallulah gosh. tribunemag.co.uk/2022/01/twee-f… is making the point about these groups, just because your aesthetics may not be full on ‘punk rock’ doesn’t mean your politics aren’t.
