A relatively small hill I am willing to die on: it annoys me when people refer to Election Day as “the first Tuesday in November.” It’s not. It’s the first Tuesday *after the first Monday* in November; so, every 11 years, it’s actually the second Tuesday in November. 2022 is one of those years, and I’d hate to see uninformed people try to show up to vote on the wrong day.
It’s a shame the colleges & universities in West Virginia don’t have strong unions like the public K12 schools do. The campus carry bill from last year was really bad; the new substitute getting ready to pass is even worse. https://t.co/YBGEghnzkK .
This leaves just 1 county in the state that hasn’t yet made an announcement. 54/55 sends a strong, clear message, but #55strong and united sends a much stronger & clearer message that our legislature cannot bully or ignore our children & schools. https://t.co/wuEWShHGUL .
SB451 (the "Education Omnibus" bill that caused the strike) was put on hold indefinitely, meaning that it will not be voted on/passed during this legislative session. I assume this means the teachers and service personnel will return to work tomorrow, and that the 54/55 counties that shut down today were effective in their message.· Mr. Noodle
At work, they're calling for ~4-6" of snow, with a glaze of ice on top of it tomorrow. Here at home, they're saying 6-10" of snow with .2-.25" of ice on top of it. Something tells me I won't be going to the office on Thursday, but, I could be wrong.
In the past hour, more than half of the counties in WV have announced they will be closed tomorrow. Will we see all #55strong united again in this fight for our children? .
Now 39 of the 55 have announced closings.· Mr. Noodle
51 of the 55 are closed now. Just 4 counties left (with 3 of those counties being ours and 2 of our 3 neighboring counties).· Mr. Noodle
Now just 2 counties left that have not announced they will be closed.· Mr. Noodle
The 54th county finally closed; that just leaves a single county that hasn’t yet made an announcement. 54 out of 55 sends a strong message, but 55 out of 55 sends a much stronger message.· Mr. Noodle
I’ve just been told on Twitter (can’t really verify) that the single hold-out (Putnam County) has started robo-calling its citizens indicating that they will *not* close tomorrow. It’s a shame, but the message should still be clear to our legislature.· Mr. Noodle
Not surprised at all by this news, but my lack of surprise doesn’t make me any less angry about it.· Mr. Noodle
I'm guessing some of those may come back once Disney starts its own service, but that's a whole separate service to have to subscribe to.· Jennifer D.
That's fair. I'm more irked with Disney than anything, because they knew Netflix was always going to be a stopgap, but they engaged in a way that all but guaranteed this would happen when they moved to setup their own thing. A few seasons of great TV is better than none, but most of those shows had the potential to run for years longer, but were never likely to be given that chance for none of the reasons that shows usually get cancelled.· Jennifer D. 3
Yeah, the whole thing is really crappy. I don’t know if Netflix initially thought the shows would garner more subscribers (there are rumors that indicate that these shows were popular, but not “I’ll cancel my subscription without these shows” popular), or if they just didn’t know their licensing deal with Disney would be so tenuous, but both companies really seem to have screwed their customers with this situation.· Mr. Noodle
RT @danagould: If your child asked you to build a wall around your house, you would ask them, “What are you afraid of?” All those chants of, “Build That Wall!” are really just chants of, “I’m Afraid!” All those tough-guy, MAGA bros. “I’m Afraid ! I’m Afraid! I’m Afraid!” #homeofthefearful .
As a colorblind person, I can honestly say that I can only see text in 2 of these dots. I assume that there is text in the others, but I couldn’t say for sure. https://t.co/SOSZZcMxGL .
Even without being colorblind it's annoying.· bentley 2

I should show it to my son. Neither the school or the pediatrician will test him and it runs big time in my family.· Christina Pikas 3
New cheesecake questions: I baked a new one this week (https://www.kraftrecipes.com/recipe/052676/philadelphia-new-york-chocolate-cheesecake). Since the last one (a regular New York Cheesecake) got a little brown around the edges, and since I'm using a dark springform pan, I turned the oven down 25°. When the timer went off, the center appeared to be set. We just cut into it, though, and the bottom-center is still very liquidy (it's a very thick cheesecake). Is there anything I can do to save this cheesecake, now that we've eaten 1/4 of it (I'm guessing not). How can I avoid this in the future if I make this same cheesecake again? Just bake it longer? Like I said, the center appeared to be set when I pulled it out of the oven, so I'm a little thrown by the fact that it wasn't baked all the way through.
Spouse says: he turns the oven off & leaves the cheesecake in the oven for an hour or so after. Then cools on top of stove until room temperature, and then into the fridge for at least 8 hours.· Stephªn1e☀️CogSc1L1brªr1ªn☀️ 2
Thanks. I did let it cool on a wire rack for most of the day before putting it in the fridge for 24 hours, but, next time I’ll leave it in the oven for a while and see if that helps.· Mr. Noodle 1
RT @GeorgeTakei: I’m going to say something unpopular: A president’s power grab under guise of “national emergency” is wrong when used deliberately to circumvent Congress, no matter who is in the White House. Trump may try it now, but it’s wrong. We shouldn’t hope a Democrat prez tries the same. .
