  1. Dumb question...how old is your akorn? If it's brand new it takes a few smokes to get enough gunk built up to help it seal airtight. If you've had it for a season or so, then you might replace the gasket. Just trying to save you some trouble if it's brand new. D
  2. I would rather deal with a rattlesnake over a water moccasin any day. At least rattle snakes with give you an audible warning and wont peruse you for the hell of it if you surprise them.
  3. It's a huge deal in Japan streetfood. I think I saw a special about it a few years back. They had machines that would make them by the boatload.
  4. You can't go wrong with ego, greenworks or kobalt. The key to any good power tool system is having vented battery packs and chargers that run air through the battieries while charging. Heat kills lithium ion batteries. I love Ryobi 18v line and have over a dozen tools, but I stay away from their yard stuff (even in the higher 40v range) because their batteries aren't vented and I've had some bad experience with their sting trimmer and blowers in the past. Also brushless is by far superior to brushed/traditional motors.
  5. I have a kobalt 80v mower that I leave at my mother in law's. Love it and easily does the front and back of her city sized lot on 1 battery. Ego products are top of the line and get great reviews. I just personally like the kobalt better (which is rebranded greenworks). And all of the kobalt line comes with brushless motors. I have a house on an acre and lake house on acre so I have riding lawn mowers for both of those. But I have two sets of kobalt 80v string trimmers, blowers and chainsaws at both locations. I won't go back to gas tools. Infact when battery powered riding lawn mowers grt more cost effective I will gladly great rid of my Cub cadet and John Deere riders. My string trimmers and blowers are around 4 seasons old, everything still works great and batteries still running strong. Only preventive maintenance I do is bring the batteries i to the house during winter, which I prob don't even need to do.
  6. Keto is like atkins about 10 years ago. Yes you can lose weight quickly, but its prob not in your best long term health goals. IMHO the only diets that pass the smell test are whole30 or diets like paleo. Where you get back to eating REAL food that is minimally processed. Start eating roasted chicken, grilled steak, steamed or baked vegetables (even potatoes). As long as you stay away from all the breads and deserts you will start to lose weight. At the end of the day its math, not magic that loses weight. You can eat a whole bunch of REAL food or you can have a few handfuls of chips, donuts, and cookies Yeah, we all can blame engineered food, portion size, sedentary jobs, 20 fast food restaurants on a single street, and ever compressed schedules. But its math, not magic.
  7. Nothing. No camera is going to help you if you don't change YOU. Dont leave your wallet or valuables in your car if you park outside over night. I have neighbors who every six months or so someone will leave an iPad on a seat or a wallet and then they will go FB postal that someone broke into their vehicle. They will post some grainy video from ring and most time their stuff is never recovered. If they do end up finding the drug user their stuff is long gone. Until you change that no camera system is going to help.
  8. I think the best question is, why does it matter to you so much? truth is I’ve been on keto and vegetarian diets before, and like with everything else you have to change it up a little to keep from getting bored. Especially on keto, little did I know a few days in of bacon, steak, and chicken I would be willing to kill for a baked potato and some Mac and cheese. I wouldve been ready to try calimari slivers in hollandaise sauce if you told me it tasted like Mac and cheese.
  9. You had a damaged package years ago that was replaced free of charge by the vendor. A few days ago you ordered a t-shirt and didn't like how they dropped the box it was in on the porch. Then you took the time, effort, and energy to try to file a complaint and post about it on the internet. I would personaly ban you as a customer for life. Dead serious.
  10. I get the hissy fit if it was a mail order pet, or family heirloom that someone shipped to you. But if it isn't broken or if the delivery driver didnt maliciously try to damage it, whats the outrage about? I look at it like trying to piss off your waiter, if you ever expect to eat there again you have very little to gain from filing a report.
  11. If you think that the big 3 package delivery services care about your box like it was one of there own and it should be gently handled with silken gloves? You live in a very, special world. You think the manufacturer in China who trucked it to the dock is handling it gently? You think the people who stuffed it into a shipping container handled it gently? You think the people unloading it state side handled it gently? You think the order pickers who work in the warehouse and picking hundreds of orders each hour are handling it gently? You think the massive machines and conveyor system are? You think those guys who load and unload the plane and truck are gently handling each box? From the moment you order it online those boxes are loaded and unloaded at least 4 or 5 times by the time it reaches your front porch. The guy dropping it two feet on your front porch is about the gentlest it been handled in the entire time. Hate to break it to you, but santa claus isnt real either.
  12. Stop being a cry baby. Ups, FedEx, USPS process millions of packages a day. If you ever make it to their warehouse or distribution center you will see the speed at which boxes move on the belt as they are automatically sorted. I saw a video years ago and it was 35 miles per hour, probably faster now days. So if you are worried about someone tossing a package on your porch suck it up buttercup.
  13. For the record. My yeti cups get zero use these days and sit at the back of the cabinet. Now days I have so many Ozark trail cups / ccozies / closable lids / jugsI can't even understand why I paid 70 bucks for two yeti cups and watched easily 6 hours of videos over 1 cup losing ice at 15 hours and 2 minutes and another one at 15 hours and 5 minutes. It's a freaking cup. Much like a clay pot is like another clay pot.
  14. It's annoying. Ignore it. They are high priced luxury items (compared to a traditional kettles/grills) and we all have to go through a long mental process to justify to ourselves and sometimes wife why we are choosing a specific brand. So when we reach a conclusion everyone else is a flamming idiot if they didn't make the same exact choice. Cars, trucks,boats, mowers, riding mowers,FREAKING COOLERS!!! houses, lot size, clothing, watches, baseball bats, gloves, blah blah blah blah. It's an endless list. Just ignore it. With that said, I will gladly give props to early adopters of kj. Heck even bge. When there isn't alot of history of a brand (or cooking style) out there it takes a bit of gumption to make the initial leap.
  15. You cannot do a high temp Papa Murphy's pizza. There have been numerous treads about it and I've even ruined one myself.... But you can make an excellent Papa Murphy's Pizza by cooking it at 425 on your Akorn. It's incredibly easy and turns out excellent.
