Read an article about some dude who was arrested for possession with intent to sell because he had 20oz of mushrooms.
Both mushrooms and alcohol keep for incredibly long periods of time, especially if kept in a cool, dark, dry location and are properly sealed in an airtight container. This means they can be used sparingly over the course of a few years.
I just don’t see why you don’t need a liquor license or even an alcohol handlers certification to own a huge amount of alcohol when apparently owning large quantities of something equates to being a vendor.
This is just another stupid double standard I noticed.
Edit: The question is rhetorical, which some people don’t seem to be getting, and while the case I was referencing does involve someone actually selling -and usually when people have large quantities of a drug they are selling- I’m pointing out that the ability to be charged for intent to sell based solely off of the quantity of a drug you own, regardless of intent, the... keep reading on reddit ➡
I live in a house built in the 70's in southern Finland and recently switched from oil central heating to a geothermal one. That meant that the former oil storage tank placed under the garage in a small 6 square meter (~65 square foot) concrete bunker was no longer necessary, so I thought I'd turn it into a root/wine cellar.
The project involved a lot of concrete casting, tiling, cutting 2 by 4s into blocks for the floor, a lot of burnt wood finishes and and a tiny bit of metalworking and electrical stuff.
The part I don't know anything about is about ventilation in a root cellar, currently it has next to nothing (except small cracks in the hatch), so if that's something I should worry about, I'd be happy to hear about it.

So, I’m an American teaching English in Poland. The company I work for uses a British English course book, which is usually no issue aside from some occasional pronunciation differences.
The vocab from the course book last week contained “cellar.” This I am familiar with. However, a student brought up “salt cellars” which I had never heard of before. I asked them to explain it. They said it’s where you store salt. I was imagining a special basement pantry or maybe a traditional Polish outbuilding used for storing large amounts of salt. I even asked if it was a common thing in Poland cue facepalm.
Then they sent a picture and I felt soooo dumb. I’d never in my life heard a salt shaker called a salt cellar before.
Has anyone had a similar experience where an English word from another dialect totally went over your head?
Edit: yes, I would have googled it but this all happened in a few second span of conversation. With the way our online classes are set up it’s hard to spark ope... keep reading on reddit ➡
I set up the cellar mod (to the exact specifications as the creator said) I checked the debug menu for the temp, and it's the exact same as outside. 7c. Now 13.5c. So I'm not entirely sure what to do? I have nearly three stacks of ice in the ice box. So again. Not sure
edit: using 1.7.10 technic
It was not written in the contract that i have to write a letter when i want to notice the cellar. It was just written that it has to be 6 weeks before the end of a calender month. I did it on whatsapp and they told me i have to send a letter. I send the letter a few days later, but it passed already the 6 weeks. Now they are telling me that its written in the contract that the termination can be accepted just with a letter. I read the contract a few times and its written that: If i want to change something from the contract, then it has to be written, but termination is not changing the contract, its part of the contract. I dont have to make a new contract because Im changing it, I just want to end it. Does someone know if I have a right and they are scamming me or i have to pay for one more month?
I was this close to seeing the outside world and feeling the warmth of the sun on my skin, to be happy, to be out of that dark cellar just like all those books said it would be like, but I would stay in that basement for a thousand lifetimes if I had known what they were keeping out.
Recently I've watched Donnie Darko, and in the movie the referenced that Cellar Door is one of the most beautiful phrases in English. Well that phrase stuck in my mind so I decided to check out if any domains had it and I ran into this website: cellar-door.com. It may be nothing but it seems like there is some hidden meaning here. The site is completely blank except for the phrase "the door is locked to strangers. speak, friend, and enter.". After a quick google it seems like it references the Doors of Durin from Lord of the Ring. At this point I'm completely lost, but I am convinced there is something more to this site. The title of the site also say it is "the Other Entrance", but whats the first entrance? Anyways I am stumped and was wondering if anybody else could come up with anything.
I very much like and enjoy the company of my son, Dwayne. We both live in the same house, though, and as such I have to deal with his constant nagging for food and other basic human needs. We've been doing this for years, and I'm pretty comfortable with it, but whenever I try to write on my desktop, I get that sensation of being watched. Of course, he's not looking at my screen and mentally criticizing me in reality, but I get that anxious feeling that he could be simply because he's nearby. Most of my actual productive writing, I think as a result of that, has actually been when I keep Dwayne locked in the cellar for hours at a time. While I've managed to get thousands of words out with this method, he continually tries to interrupt me by knocking on the door, shouting that he hasn't eaten all day, and even crying, which is very loud and distracting. Anyone in a similar situation have some advice?
I will be doing a live video in two places
facebook - open to the public you do not have to be my friend to watch it
Instagram - I think you have to follow me to watch it? but i'm not entirely sure. Just click the profile circle that's lit up and watch instagram live video
Here's an example of how the raffle will be run
There are 3000 tickets
5th - final - deciding spin...
boom output is again 3000 number/names.. but in randomized order
Let's say on the 5th spin the output is:
1021 - george
808 - chris
I think the boy lives with his aunt or female relative, who is perhaps negligent. He finds the faerie chained somewhere in a parallel universe/ in the past (the area was like an alternate dimension to his house's basement?) and spends time trying to gain her trust.
The faerie obviously has trust issues as she was displayed as a curioso. It described her, or maybe her wings as so transparent, that they seemed almost invisible when held up to light. Subtext about her life sounds like she was abused as well. There may have been other creatures as well. The boy fights with the owner near the end, I think.
Another thing- the book might have spelled fairy differently (faerie or fayrie etc)

Mariangela. I'd finally thought of a name.
Mariangela. It means "Rebel Angel". I'm not much of a religious man, but I think it fits. She's not a traditional angel, but she's my angel.
My guardian angel.
It was time. I was going into the cellar. I was going to apologise, no matter what it cost.
I couldn't lose her.
I went down into the cellar, closing the door behind me, looking for her.
I saw her, sitting on her bed, eating the arm of one of her older prey items. It smelt really bad in the cellar today. I suppressed a gag as I stood there. I called out softly towards her;
She gave me a sideways glance, before putting the arm down, and looking away.

I’ve been piping for 5 years but never stored tobacco for any length of time.
Some tobaccos really knock me on my ass; spins, dizziness, etc.
I’m not a light weight. More like a medium weight.
Would love to smoke some of those tobaccos (they taste so good) if the nic was turned down a notch.
Let me know your thoughts/experiences.
So about 3 years ago I stuffed a bunch of OGS into a quart mason jar and put it away. I packed it very tightly to the point that there was very little air in the jar. I opened it and it popped. Most notably the popping sound was loud enough that it actually reminded me of the gun range and it took a few seconds to compose myself. It also literally popped the lid about 2 ft or so in the air straight out of my hands. It scared the crap out of me. Not a safety issue, but a "new to me" warning for others.
And the smell... amazing...
As the bleeding abomination with the milky white eyes drags itself toward me with it's stinking maw gaping wide, I can only wish they'd also warned me about the attic.
My friend is telling me "it's not really structured like an mlm," but my Google fu tells me otherwise.
I remember watching this movie in HBO and Cinemax back in 2010 i don't know the exact year of the movie was made i think it was 50 to 70s and the film quality has a film grain in it i think.
I'll describe the scene i can barely remember it.
" In the beginning of the movie There was a writing in the wall AOA painted in white"
"The main characters are spies or soldiers i think they went inside the church and the church employers helped them and hides them in the basement"
"The German troops investigate the church they were searching for the main characters i think"
"The German troops pushed back the main characters on the main hall back into their basement they were overwhelm by German reinforcements"
"They defended the basement until every single one of them dies the german flooded their basement and the 2 remaining characters put their gun inside their mouths and committed suicide instead of surrendering"
That's all i can remember sorry for the bad English.
If you guys and girls don’t know about this. In his recent video with the roast he was sponsored by Bright cellars and a comment with 2k upvotes about how they are scamming people (no concrete proof) got deleted(I assume by Adam). Now a new comment claims that they made up fake wine producers to sell their wines. Hoping we get a statement from Adam soon. Please correct me if I am wrong or add anything if you know more about this.
Edit: Adam didn’t delete the comment and he has responded in the comments
First off I’d like to thank everyone for the overwhelming support for my previous entries. My dog recently died of cancer and my girlfriend broke up with me. I never knew these short stories would blow up the way they did and I totally didn’t copy/chop up a bunch of previous ones when I sorted by top posts of all time.
