Was broiling some garlic bread this morning and ended up burning it. Was in the oven for a few minutes and wasn't even closed to browned. Let it go for 1 minute more and it was charred.

Also, fuck fruit flies.

Dude. I'm going to save your fucking life right now.

You need these things.

1. Apple cider vinegar (not a lot, get the smallest bottle you can find)
2. Plastic or otherwise disposable cup
3. Plastic wrap
4. Rubber band

Pour a few fingers of the vinegar into the cup. Plastic wrap over the top of the cup. Rubber band the plastic wrap in place. Then use a fork or the tip of a knife to poke some holes in the plastic wrap. Half dozen holes or so is fine. Place it somewhere near the main infestation of fruit flies. In 2-3 days that cup will be full of dead flies. They can get into the tiny holes to try and get at the vinegar but they're too stupid to find their way back out. I make myself one or two of these traps and place them in my house every year and they always work like a charm.

Goes without saying I guess, but make sure you don't have any rotting fruit of vegetables in the house. Also make sure your shitty roommates are washing the dishes. Fruit flies love general food filth, but even if your place is filthy that vinegar trap will do the trick 100% guaranteed.

Yeah, I actually went and got some jars to make traps out of. It was just a bummer that I bought some hot dog buns yesterday and when I looked at them this morning, fruit flies got into the "closed" package of buns. I've also seen a tip to make sure they aren't in you sink, feeding on rotting food.

I assume the accumulation of fruit flies had to be because of unwashed dishes or trash in the trash can. We don't exactly have any food sitting out that would be the main culprit.

I like that you use finger as a reference of measurement. I don't actually know how much that is, but I know the term.

It's an alcoholic's unit of non-specific measurement. It literally equates to the height of your stacked fingers. "2 fingers" is enough liquid to fill a cup to the height of two fingers wrapped around it.

I've set up a few. Lots of flies in one, but they refuse to go in the vinegar, so they are just resting on the inside of the plastic.

That's how it's supposed to work. That cup's going to be lined with dead bugs in the next 24 hours.

A few days ago I had another one of those suspicious login attempts to my Steam account. Probably the 3rd or 4th I've ever had total, but my first in a while. So I finally broke down and changed my steam password to a crazy long one with xkcd password strength rules:

http://xkcd.com/936/

And just got yet another suspicious login attempt. Changing my password didn't help.

To my knowledge, nobody has actually managed to access my account. My dollar and change in my steam wallet is still secure and none of my Dota hats have gone missing, but these suspicious logins are starting to annoy me. Doesn't getting to that point in the login process, where Steam is emailing me the 5-character login codes, actually require the 3rd party to have actually attempted a login WITH my password?

Wow. So since changing my password didn't help, I changed it back to the old password and since doing that (like 10 hours ago) I've been bombarded with more login attempts from exotic locales such as the Ukraine, Italy, Brasil, et al. Changed password yet again. Does anybody else get these? Is this just me??

The next 2 years of my life are actually going to be hell on earth now that mainstream marketing departments have discovered trap music. I survived 2 years of dubstep in fucking everything no problem because dubstep was easy to appreciate on an ironic level. Trap beats make me want to shit myself and then take handfuls of the poop and mash it into my ears.

This was the specific commercial I saw when I made that post but since then I've seen another shitty trap song used in another acura commercial. Something about a horse...

Can't find the actual commercial, but this is the song used in the other Acura commercial. Shit makes me fucking gag.

It's medical science. Shit is proven to work. Please tell me how I'm making myself worse, Dr LiQuid, when literally every actual Doctor I've consulted on the matter (like, almost a dozen at this point) and my own personal experiences tell me otherwise.

Cool story bro. Meanwhile a watering can of salt water cured my sinus infection that otherwise would have taken hundreds of dollars in doctors visits and prescription medication.

Symptoms that landed me in the emergency room a few months ago have resurfaced in the last week. Last time I went undiagnosed after multiple blood tests and I baffled both the ER doc and my primary care physician. I eventually just got better on my own after a few weeks of abject misery, so I guess I'll just stay home and look forward to that to happening again.

Yes, but it still doesn't produce a seal because I have an elongated bowl style toilet with an oblong drain hole. Shit sucks.
