We love our heat pump!

We did a DIY install a few years ago. Cost about $4500 in total for a Bosch 18k BTU unit and everything needed to install it.

We got $900 back from the state (WA USA) and $2000 back from the feds. That brought our total out of pocket down to $1600.

We had electric resistive heat and no AC previously. Our heating bill went down by $50/month in the winter. It added maybe $10/month in the summer for air conditioning.

For our area, with mild winters and low electricity costs, it's fucking amazing.

Same, I'd just use it to kill myself.

I'm OK BTW, but do have depression. I don't think it's worth the risk.

Don't sully the good name of President Camacho!

He was a good man who helped his people the best way he knew how.

I regret to inform you that he is still alive

This one made me really sad.

I loved his videos. I learned a lot from the disassembly videos.

Then he went all Covid denier as soon as the pandemic hit. I couldn't watch it anymore

Because prohibition doesn't work. We tried it with alcohol, it didn't work. We've tried it with most other drugs for decades, it didn't work.

Prohibition just creates a black market for whatever drug is banned. The drug will still be available. It will also be adulterated and untested for purity.

If they were banned, cigarettes would become more like modern heroin. The contents of them would be unknown. In addition to the harms of tobacco, there would be the harms of whatever adulterants the black market sellers put into them.

Instead of dying over the course of decades of consumption, the smokers of Black Market cigarettes would also potentially be dying immediately from whatever random stuff people put in the cigarettes.

Kinky people who want 3+ people involved

Agreed. It's been common throughout history for people to live on only beer and water for a few weeks at a time.

I imagine you could survive at least a few months on doppelbock if you were in good health beforehand.

Your troubleshooting skills are above average, tbh.

You've identified that there's an issue. You tried something simple to remedy. You even tried it again to make sure.

You didn't make a bunch of crazy assumptions about what the problem was. You didn't do a bunch of weird shit all at once to try to fix it. You didn't do something to make the problem worse.

You're doing great!

Cooking. I love to cook for my friends and family. I've been perfecting my homemade pizza for years. It's very good and I love to make it for guests.

I've had people say I should open a pizzaria, especially since the one good one in town shut down.

Fuck that.
