I just got this using chatgpt:


  • 250 grams all-purpose flour

  • 5 grams baking powder

  • 3 grams salt

  • 45 grams vegetable oil or melted butter

  • About 180 grams warm water


  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt until well combined.

  2. Add the vegetable oil or melted butter to the dry ingredients and mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  3. Slowly add warm water, a little at a time, while stirring the mixture with a spoon or your hands until a dough forms. You may not need to use all of the water.

  4. Once the dough comes together, knead it on a lightly floured surface for about 2-3 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.

  5. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and shape each portion into a ball.

  6. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each dough ball into a thin circle, about 15-20 centimeters in diameter.

  7. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.

  8. Place a rolled-out tortilla onto the hot skillet and cook for about 30-60 seconds on each side, or until lightly browned and bubbles start to form.

  9. Remove the cooked tortilla from the skillet and keep warm in a clean kitchen towel while cooking the remaining tortillas.

  10. Serve the freshly made flour tortillas warm with your favorite fillings or toppings.

Also, if I plan to freeze do I freeze it after cooking? or before cooking when they're flat? or round dough balls?

I forgot to mention but I live in an area where 220V is the norm.

Can I Use my Multimeter to Test How Much Power my Appliance (TV) is Using?

I wanted to know if my TV actually uses only 50W of power.

If it's possible to use a multimeter to check, how do I do it and what should I avoid?

I want to go to Tokyo Racecourse or OI Racecourse

  1. Do I need to book tickets in advance?

  2. Would I be able to bet on horses even though I don't speak Japanese?

  3. Which of the two (Tokyo Racecourse or OI Racecourse) should I go to?

  4. Is it open on weekends? at nights? etc.

Going to Tokyo next week, here's our itinerary:

Day 01 - arrival (afternoon), shibuya, donki , and golden guy

Day 02 - Disneyland

Day 03 - tsukiji market, temple, and teamlab

Day 04 - mt fuji, and ski

Day 05 - free day or harry potter

Day 06 - Free day/Departure (night)

Just wanted to ask if there are any non-obvious things we should take note of?

edit: I'll add some more information.

We'll be travelling in a big group (16+) and we'd prefer to not move hotels.

The itinerary is kind of empty because we'd probably spend a longer amount of time than usual in every spot because of how big our group is.

Personally, I prefer food, some sightseeing, and shopping (thrift and souvenir shopping) which I'll probably do on the free day. (I was thinking somewhere along the lines of Shimokitazawa?)

I'll add:

~~1. Are there any Horse Racing Tracks where we can watch near Tokyo? (is it open on weekends?) ~~ I found Tokyo Racecourse and OI Racecourse.

  1. Do I need to book tickets for the Horse Race Tracks ahead of time?

Just Got My Basic Board Game Table, Where and What Accessories Can I Add?

I commissioned this very basic board game/dining table so there isn't much going on right now.

I was wondering if I could add something detachable on the sides like cup holders or card holders.

I was thinking to hire a 3D print service or maybe there are ready-made stuff out there that I could buy instead.

I'm very excited to play on this table.

From this post, I got the idea to remove and replace the wheels altogether using a hacksaw.

Here's what it looks like right now. My problem now is that I can't remove the leftover metal shaft from the caster wheel.

I've tried using some lubricant and hammering it with a screwdriver but it didn't budge.

I was hoping I could disassemble it further, but I don't know how.

Can someone teach me how to disassemble the wheels? or maybe another way to remove the gunk from between the wheels so it can turn smoothly again.

Can I Blend Frozen Cooked Shrimp (with Skin) to Create a Soup?

I have these frozen shrimps (leftover from the holidays) and I don't know what to do with it.

I was thinking I blend it up, and some water and stuff and it'd be like a soup.

Do you think it'd be a good idea?

Why don't I just defrost and cook you say? because it's already overcooked.

Is it Possible for an Appliance have Drastically Different Power Consumption Levels from a Similar Model?

Currently looking at TVs and stumbled upon this 55inch TCL model that's just right for our budget. I noticed though that a similar TV was being sold on a different store which are practically the same (size, display type, panel, software, I/O, etc.) but the average monthly power consumption dropped from 33kW-hr to 13kW-hr (based on 9hr daily usage).

(models of the TV in question is 55p747, 55P735, 54P635. 55P747 was the one that's exclusive to another store that had the insane power efficiency).

I tried looking at other similar TVs from othwr brands and nothing came close.

How's that possible?

55P747 had a power input of 49W

while 55P635 had 125W power input.

Help Me Find the Perfect Email App for Me

I am using an IMAP email.

I am currently using Outlook on PC, and the rules setting on Outlook is an important part of my routine.

I was wondering if there's an email app that I can seamlessly use both on Android and PC.

Commissioning a Board Game Table, What Should I Look Out For?

It's my first time commissioning something like this. The guy I'll be doing this with wouldn't know what a board game table is so I'll have to design it myself. (I have some drafting/cad experience so I'm up to the task).

What stuff should I look out for when designing this table? I made a partial list of things I think I ought to keep in mind.

  1. Add a gasket for each wood topper to avoid leakage.

  2. Use multiple wood topper instead of single wood topper

  3. Look for pre-made plans in the internet

  4. Find basic table design to get leg clearance height, and table height.

  5. Which wood would be best value? (I know this would be dependent on my area, Philippines)

I plan to keep it simple and probably wouldn't need extra features like led lights, cup holders, etc. As long as I can have my board game in the table while using it as a dining table when not playing I'll be okay.

The legs of the table need to go under the bed.

Currently there's zero space under the bed, that's why I need something similar to a riser.

Coming off as a noob here, but how do you actually utilize the debugger.

Mostly working on python stuff in VS Code, sometimes I just run the code and look at the error. Sometimes I try the debug and run option but it acts the same as just running the code; there's some stuff like variables window but I don't know how to utilize the information to debug.

Never knew I wanted this but it makes so much sense.

I like it, it's just missing some niche communities.

But overall, I get more response in "populated" communities compared to popular subreddits which is neat.

What are these dampers you speak of?

[-] counselwolf 6 points 5 months ago

it's an awfully convenient and accessible tool though.

I live in the Philippines and Masa Harina is rare, I could technically buy it but it'd be 5-7x more expensive the corn flour.
