So I bet a guy from work (3 weeks after the election!!) $5000 that Biden would be President on inauguration day. He was drinking the kool aid hard reading all sorts of crazy shit 1000% convinced Trump would remain in office. He'd send me Tik Tok videos as proof every day of random ass people explaining how it was going to happen. Seeing how relentless he was I said why don't you put your money where your mouth is. Soon enough a $500 bet quickly escalated into a legit $5000 bet after lots of ridiculous back and forth.
So here we are, I won, and you're not gonna believe it but the Trump guy is being a sore loser!! He is 100% going to pay me but he is trying to win the only way he can - by making it a pain in the ass for me to get my money so he can have a laugh.
He has ordered 75 small aluminum pill containers (see here) and has about 15 home depot buckets (see here) which he intends to fill with concrete. As of now his plan appears to be to put hundred dollar bills (50) scattered throughout the pill containers and buckets of concrete. Rebar or wire mesh may be used. He included me in a giant work group message where he is grandstanding his plans (see here) - that's how I know all this. Once again this is the only way a guy who just lost $5000 can "win" - right out of the Trump playbook!
At this point his intention is to make me work as much as possible for the money for a laugh. He certainly will put more thought into making this a pain in the ass for me than he did making the bet in the first place.
My goal at this point is to give him as little satisfaction as possible or even flip this in my favor and completely take the wind out of his sails. Since he revealed the pill containers he ordered, as a preemptive strike plan, I went ahead myself and ordered 75 of them as well. They'll be here Friday along with a stack of fake hundreds from Amazon. Here's a couple scenarios:
Destruction AllStars is for PS5 only while the other two are for PS4+PS5.
Good time for PS+ subscription- Jan games were Tomb Raider and Greedfall , with Maneater for PS5
I really love to terraform in Minecraft, and I would really like to create a black sand beach. But upon touching water, the black concrete powder turns solid, which ruins the view. So how about we can wax concrete powder, so we can create beaches, out of concrete powder?

There is also a post from a week ago on WSB about all the $800 calls on 2/12, 2/19 and 3/19 and why they might exist which I found pretty insightful (it has half the upvotes of this post despite being in a sub with almost 9 million people):

I'm about to work on the overview on anachronisms in the BoM (and what SHOULD be in there if it was a history of the ancient Americas), and I am not wanting to put a big list of anachronisms because I think in some ways it waters down just how damning they are. For me the top few off the top of my head are:
The new testament material - it clearly could not have been available to the BoM people, and long sections like the Sermon on the Mount are clear proof that Joseph Smith was using a modern text to write an ancient one.
Deutero-Isaiah - I realize there are a few scholars who do not believe the Deutero-Isaiah sections are truly from a second writer, but the consensus at this point is that they are, and this is a problem for Joseph Smith since he doesn't realize they were a late addition.
Having the 'Old Testament' put together on metal plates in Egyptian before Lehi left. This one has several layers of problems starting with those books not being compiled at that point, that there's no other example in history of records of any significant length on metal plates, and certainly not on Egyptian at that time.
Knowledge of the name Christ before biblical prophets in the Old World. It is impossible to avoid how the Book of Mormon knows the ending before it writes the beginning, and this is a massive problem.
Pre-Christian baptisms. This might be piling on to the pre-Christian knowledge in the Book of Mormon, but it seems like a really important anachronism in that it further shows the author is writing from a time long after the Book of Mormon begins the practice. And the write-up from u/Imthemarmotking explains the problem really well: https://lecturesondoubt.com/2016/09/15/pre-christian-baptisms-and-why-it-was-an-early-shelf-item-for-me/
I also want to point anyone to a thread about anachronisms that started after the Bill Reel/Jim Bennett interviews, because that's an important angle of the anachronism discussion for sure.
Anyway... what are your top anachronisms? It seems a lot more productive than working from large lists, especially since not all anachronisms are of equal importance.
