So, I finally have a I don’t work here, lady moment! This happened Friday night. My boyfriend and I went to get some pizza for take out and decided to take a little walk around downtown. His dad’s restaurant/bar had music going on we so swung by for a bit. We ran into a few friends, and it became clearly obvious no one was social distancing.
We were standing outside on the patio where a some people were. At one point I went to go to the restroom and grab a drink, as I’m walking back to where my boyfriend was standing, I said a brief hello to a gentleman at a table who is friends with my bf. He’s sitting with another man and an older woman, the Karen. She looks at me and says “miss, we don’t have any napkins.” I looked at her and said, “ok?”, to which she says “well I need napkins!”. The whole time both guys are telling her I don’t work there, and I also tell her, “I don’t work here.” She then says, “I know you don’t work here but you can go tell someone I need napkins!” I was shocked... keep reading on reddit ➡
About a year ago I was working in a fast food restaurant in a mall and our uniform was all black : pants, shirt, apron and cap with the company’s logo. During my break, I would take off the apron and cap while I was in the mall and people would often mistake me for an employee in other shops, even though the uniform of said shop didn’t look at all like what I was wearing.
Once I was at a Starbucks counter to get myself and my coworkers coffees. I was texting, holding a couples of straw when I heard :
(Not quite a) Karen : hum hum sorry
I moved out of the way thinking the lady’s order was ready and I was in her way.
Now the same lady just tap me on the shoulder and says : Miss there are no napkins left.
Realizing she thought I was an Starbuck employee I give her a customer service smile.
Me : oh, I do not work here.
K : But you’re all dressed in black.
Me : I do work at (restaurant’s name) upstairs.
K : Well... can’t you put out more napkins? I need one.
Me : As I said, I do... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hello! I am hoping to invest in some reusable napkins but am stuck deciding between cotton and linen options. I'd love to hear which one folks tend to prefer and why? Which one lasts longer; which is easier to clean etc.
I did search through this subreddit but didn't find a post that explained which option most people consider "better", or why they prefer one over the other -- apologies if I missed it!
I have recently convinced my family to switch to reusable napkins. It took a while to get them to agree but due to napkin shortages I decided to press them about the cloth napkins. And good news they agreed!! I am so excited but they want me to find it. So I was hoping for advice.
Ideally they would have enough napkins to use up for the week so maybe about a set of 70 would be good? When I look up cloth napkins I usually find the decorative intense 12x12 you'd find in a restaurant. I don't want that. It needs to be a seamless replacement or it won't work. Something that could be used and then thrown into a basket for the laundry by the end of the week.
Any help would be appreciated!
I am no expert on finance, but let's say Athersys gets approval for stroke (about 600,000 new US cases annually) and ARDS (about 150,000 new US cases annually). Suppose each dose is $20,000, and we have 250,000,000 shares outstanding. Let's suppose a 20% profit margin net of taxes, and that ATHX captures 1/3 of the US market in each category (so 250,000 US doses), and there is a 25 p/e ratio:
Aren't we at $100/share for US sales only? (250,000 doses x 20,000 = 5,000,000,000/250,000,000=20 x .20= 4 x25= $100/sh)
Is my math methodology for s/p calculation correct?
Is this conservative or overly-optimistic?
If correct, shouldn't we be there in the next 2-3 years?
Would love to know your thoughts.
Now I know what you're all thinking. How can we definitively crown any team the national champs without an actual tournament. Well I'm here to give my thesis and defend my doctorate as to why NC State would have won the National Championship and should thus be given the title of 2020 National Champions. What lies below I must warn you is a drunken thesis that cannot be disproven.
All of this is based off of this bracket prediction Bracket. Every other team will be advanced based off their seed except my team because that is how basketball works.
Xavier vs Wake Forest
In the first round we have NC State playing Xavier and see as NC State hasn't played any team from the Big East to we need to look to Xavier's record to find a shining beacon of light. Xavier lost 80-78 against wake forest. Now this is important because NC State beat wake 2-0 giving them th... keep reading on reddit ➡
So, I am currently living with Kevina. I am 19 and she is 20. Here's what happened a few days ago:
we're eating and doing our own thing, when she goes 'there's a red spot on my tongue what is it?
Me: Maybe a burn?
K: A BURN!?!
Me: (shrugs. I'm not a medical professional) I then look over a few moments later to see her stuffing a napkin in her mouth.
K: I'm trying to soothe the burn
Me: put ice in your mouth/on your tongue
K: (goes to the freezer, grabs ice and puts it in her mouth, only for it to instantly fall out. This happens again. We have an ice maker so the ice kind of has an oblong shape.
K: (laughs) I'll eat something cold (gets ice cream from the fridge). Hey, is this mold?
Me: Looks to see a long green stripe of mold in the strawberry ice cream. FYI, Kevina is not good at putting things in the fridge/freezer when she's done with them.
Me: That's mold
K: Oh. Can I have one of your yogurts (why she can't get her own is beyond me, but whatever)
Me: Yes... keep reading on reddit ➡
So at the restaurant, there is a trash can🐀 and I fell in (on accident) I stuck my dick🍆 in a raccoon corspe☠️ (on accident😯) I managed to get out ok though
So I crawled into another trash can 🗑️ and there were maggots crawling and I stuck it in my vagina and now im having unexpected orgasms
Update: 😭😭 I keep passing out I threw up in the toilet and my dick is turning purple so I had to take it off 😪 and then I fell asleep. The next morning it tjey are tickling me and I tried to open up my vagina but I fucked up and tore it I am crying 😭😭
I have spent 7 hours without a break recording the instruments, mixing the audio, and making the video. All of the parts are done in one full take. I played guitar, bass, electric piano, organ, marimba, and drums for this. The guitar and electric piano parts are completely improvised besides the main hook.
The guitar is my modified 1979 Vantage VS650, and both the guitar and the bass were running through my Line 6 Helix. If anyone has any gear/music/whatever questions, I'd be happy to do my best to answer!

Suppose that you were sitting down at this table. The napkins are in front of you, which napkin would you take? The one on your ‘left’? Or the one on your ‘right’? The one on your left side? Or the one on your right side? Usually you would take the one on your left side. That is ‘correct’ too. But in a larger sense on society, that is wrong. Perhaps I could even substitute ‘society’ with the ‘Universe’. The correct answer is that ‘It is determined by the one who takes his or her own napkin first.’ …Yes? If the first one takes the napkin to their right, then there’s no choice but for others to also take the ‘right’ napkin. The same goes for the left. Everyone else will take the napkin to their left, because they have no other option. This is ‘society’… Who are the ones that determine the price of land first? There must have been someone who determined the value of money, first. The size of the rails on a train track? The magnitude of electricity? Laws and Regulations? Who was the first... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m taking an RF engineering course, and it’s heavy on theory and math and very light on examples and time. I have been trying to find a big picture overview of some real RF engineering design.
A project I’d like to do (to kill two birds with one stone, one being learning RF circuit design and two to help my radio astronomy fascination) is to design a hydrogen line (1420MHz) LNA with real components (RLCs and Transistors) I can find on digikey or minicircuits. It should have a NF of less than 1dB and a gain of 15dB (just throwing some numbers out there. Sure it’s probably already been done, but it ought to be a trivial project for any RF engineering student to tackle from scratch.
Right now I wouldn’t even know where to begin. I think I would start buy buying an LNA and reverse engineering it, but I feel like one of you could design this in a flash on the back of a napkin.
Otherwise I would start googling filter and amplifier designs that have already been done, but this feels a... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi all! I'm trying to cut some costs by making and/or gathering linens for our wedding next year. I was thinking of buying a ton of different patterned, colorful napkins at thrift stores and estate sales but COVID has made that plan a bit of a dud. Everything I've found on Etsy is pretty expensive. Has anyone had any luck on used wedding supply exchanges or other ways to get used items over the internet? I know we can rent them, but we're trying to avoid added costs for things we can only use once. Thanks!
