TIFU by trying to help a small restaurant's Thanksgiving Dinner takeout website, but wound up making things way worse

My girlfriend and I both tested positive for COVID, so going to either of our parents' homes for Thanksgiving dinner is out of the question. Neither of us did any grocery shopping, so we were trying last-minute to find a restaurant in the area that offers Thanksgiving delivery dinners. You know, support local business!

We were in the middle of doing our "research" by comparing food options and prices when I found one website that looked like it offered a pretty good deal: Three course meal, additional appetizers, optional cocktails, nice! Only thing is, it's a little pricey... so maybe we can skip the cocktails and open one of the wine bottles we've been saving for a nice night-in, instead. I decide to click through the order just to see how much this dinner might cost.

First page: I select a 4pm delivery for Thursday, November 26, 2020.

Second page: I select two Thanksgiving dinners.

Third page: I select two additional appetizers.

Fourth page: I try to skip the cocktail option and... uhh... it looks like I need to choose a cocktail before I place my order? Odd. Okay, let's just select one to keep things moving along.

Fifth page: Review and confirm my order... but, I don't want the cocktail so I try to a little backdoor maneuver to edit my order before putting down my credit card. Hmm, no luck. Might be best to call the restaurant and ask whether I can place the order over the phone.

When I call, I explain the situation to the nice hostess. My timing is pretty good because the kitchen is still getting prepared for tonight's dinner and it sounds like there's some downtime to address the website problem. She tells me not to worry, everything will be fixed shortly so I should try again in a few minutes. But, she takes down my name and number just in case they need... help? Okay, sure. No problem.

The call ends. A few minutes go by. I try the website again. I click through the first page, second page, and third page. So far, so good until... wait. The cocktail page has been completely removed, and so has the option to review and confirm my order. Maybe it's my phone? I'll try on my laptop. Nope. Same problem.

I call the restaurant back and the nice hostess answers again. "Hi, I just called. I'm having a different problem with the website though..." After some frantic, inaudible screaming just a few feet away from the phone, a man picks up and asks what the problem is. I explain the situation and he assures me he knows EXACTLY how to fix it! ...even th

Is Grievous Wounds even working? Heals are still massive.

I remember Riot saying they would nerf healing runes and buff Grievous Wounds in pre-season, but some champions are still healing for massive amounts. I recently faced this issue two times, with different types of champions, once with a Yasuo that would outheal even tower shots with what seemed to be lifesteal only and another was a Yuumi that made a Shadow Assassin Kayn tank more than Rhaast while still having massive damage. Both of these cases had the team building Grievous Wounds, but the healing was insanely high regardless and made them basically unkillable. I wonder if the debuff is even working, because it has done a very bad job at controlling healing so far.

YSK: you can pick up small microscopes that go over your phone camera very cheaply, aside from being fun they are also great for home first aid and allow you to check that small wounds are clean or to locate splinters and other debris

Why YSK:

I used one of these to find a tiny piece of glass that was stuck in my foot and I hadn’t been able to see with my own eyes.

Goes without saying, sterilise with an antibac wipe before and after using in this way!

Edit: for those asking for a link, just search β€˜Phonescope’ on your purchasing platform of choice ;)

Thornmail 60% grievous wounds should be changed from Immobilizing enemies to Being damaged by enemies 3 times, similar to Mortal Reminder. It sucks to play tanks like Mundo that can't apply 60% Grievous Wounds but people can apply 60% to you.

Thornmail is unreliable at inflincting 60% Grievous Wounds unlike its counterparts except for Chemtech Purifier which procs through Immobilizing also.

Chempunk Chainsword - HACKSHORN: Dealing physical damage to enemy champions inflicts them with 40% Grievous Wounds for 2 seconds, increased to 60% if the target is below 50% of their maximum health. It's reliable because most of the time enemies will be low hp and try to draintank or heal.

Morellonomicon - AFFLICTION: Dealing magic damage to enemy champions inflicts them with 40% Grievous Wounds for 2 seconds, increased to 60% if the target is below 50% of their maximum health. Same case as Chempunk Chainsword

Mortal Reminder - SEPSIS: Dealing physical damage to enemy champions inflicts them with 40% Grievous Wounds for 2 seconds. Attacking a champion 3 times within 2 seconds increases this effect to 60% until it ends. It's reliable because it procs 60% grievous wounds until you stop dealing damage.

Thornmail only inflicts 60% for 2 seconds when you Immobilize enemies, but tanks like Mundo and Malphite can't apply it, one has no Immoblizing CC and the other has only 1 Immobilizing CC and it is his Ultimate.

It is also unreliable because it inflicts only for 2 seconds when most Tanks CC's are 1-2 seconds long and have cooldowns, the 60% GW only lasts for 2 seconds and most champs that heal alot need to attack you or use abilities and they can only do that while moving, so it ends up being useless most of the time. It only works reliably vs champs that heal others like enchanters.

My suggestion was to make it work like Mortal Reminder but instead of attacking people, you get attacked to proc it.

I was playing against a Vlad/Sylas team the other day as tank Voli Jungle, and realized how badly I wanted an MR item that gives grievous wounds. I'm glad they've expanded the shop a little bit to make buying AP with wounds easier, but why do we have bramble and not something with MR?

Grievous wounds' rework is one of the best things from this preseason

One of my favourite things about Senna support was that she could buy exec extremely easily (and she applies it very easily too), and ever since her release I was hoping that Riot would let every class get some sort of healing counter. And they've finally done it!

It just feels so good to be able to buy grievous wounds on enchanters or mages, when you need it earlygame. No longer do you have to stand by and watch from afar as a Janna, while your team has 0 healing reduction versus Soraka Aatrox Katarina Samira and Zac. You can buy it yourself for 800g now! And you don't have to spend 3 goddamn thousands of gold for Morello either, which was neither gold efficient for a support nor cheap enough to be afforded by one. Phenomenal change and this game really needed it.

Not to mention that the game actually tells you by how much the healing is getting reduced now (%).

its actually criminal of how many champs need voice line updates. legendary skins rub salt in the wound.

ahri: had lore changes for 3 years. english voice actor did legendary skins TWICE. still no voice update.

mf: had the lore update for 5 YEARS. still no voice update. still references summoners like its 2009. at least remove her summoner lines and her 4th wall breaking lines.

vladimir: still has shitty ass blood puns for 10 YEARS. im not even a vlad main and this just pisses me off the most. ppl said in the comments of his [recent skin] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5BuU5Q_fh0&loop=0) said his voice lines were garbage.

yasuo: he got a "voice update" of 7 lines. his brother, which came back from the dead. the whole reason why hes depressed and edgy.

leblanc: an old hag (both literally and league age) but still says summoners and looks like a stage get up clown. had 100 years of lore updates.

kat: gets a legendary skin. still has 1 minute of voice lines.

darius, kats, dravens, and other voice actors added lines for league of runeterra. vlad and fizz voice lines sound much better from league of runeterra than in league of legends.

lor has so many potential voice updates for champs long overdue. channel for a lotta voices.

The new grievous wounds mark is very hard to see (especially in team fights) and needs some of the love that item icons got!

Ever since the latest update, I felt like the grievous wounds usage went down. This is not the case at all, it is just that it is very hard to see

The new icon is dim, and is yellow and red instead of red and white, which makes it really hard to see in team fights. Here are some pictures I collected from youtube videos: https://imgur.com/a/JdL3XVk

It does not show immediately as well, sometimes not visible at all like with the fourth picture where Katarina Ults Renekton.

For some people it might not be a great deal, but it is.

EDIT: Just to be clear on the image: top row is the old one, bottom row is the new one.

EDIT2: no ignite is really hard to notice too!

Best all-around balm for feet, wounds, whatever else?

I'm a climber too, so I always have ClimbOn on hand and have been taking it on trips for the past few years. It's got a lot of plusses:

  • It provides a decent (I think?) moisture barrier on the feet when I anticipate getting wet (this is a new concern for me as my Xero Mesa Trails do NOT dry out anywhere near as quickly as my Trail Gloves, but otherwise are better in every way).

  • It heals wet, pruny skin well

  • It heals dry, hard, cracked heel skin (from being wet too long) on the heel well

  • Not sure it'd be great for covering minor wounds

I carry a micro tub of vaseline as well to rub on minor cuts and scrapes, but I want to consolidate. I've been looking at Trail Toes as a good balm to perform all functions vs carrying multiple things; the silicone looks like it would be a superior preventative moisture barrier. Will it be a good wound cover?

Most of my hikes are pretty dry - in the mountains of Colorado - but there are wet times and wet areas where foot care becomes more important.

What do you guys and gals recommend for an occasional user of foot balm who wants whatever he carries to pull double or triple duty as wound smear and general skin care needs while on trail as well?

I’ve seen variants of these said about Kelly all the time but also Anelise.

Genuine question: is there evidence of this, specifically? All I’ve seen is evidence that they both had bacterial infections associated with the fecal-oral route of transmission.

But the overwhelming majority of fecal-oral infections have nothing to do with anything as gross as directly handling feces. It can be as simple as not washing your hands.

Do we know these people actually did these things? Or do we just know their bacterial diagnoses?
