5 stars: Microwave Panini Press

Back when microwaves first hit the consumer market in the 70s it spawned a whole bunch of platters and pots that would grill or brown. They all sucked.  I hate most cold sandwiches. This thing works.  The only negative is that it is too small to cook for two at one time.  I found a similarly designed, slightly wider one and ordered it.

Lekue Microwave Grill, Sandwich Maker, Panini Press, 10 In x 5.7 In.

Helps satisfy our cravings for restaurants.

More and more, we don’t actually own (in the sense of control) the devices that we own (in the sense of having purchased).

Traffic / Reddit, Tumblr, Onlyfans, Porn, Advertisers and Investors

Reddit has been gingerly grooming itself for an IPO for a couple of years now.  But there's no doubt that NSFW content is still a driving force of its userbase and content generation.  I'd estimate that porn is 60-70% of its new content on any given day, probably half of which passes moderator review and makes it to subreddits.

This leaves them in the same predicament as tumblr and onlyfans --kill porn and it'll decimate their stats & userbase.

OTOH, it *may* be that advertisers and investors are learning that they may have to keep the unsavory parts to get the eyeballs they crave.  I'll note that when GM introduced the Silverado EV this past week, they blanketed the general subreddits with ads.

The aftermath of the IPO will be interesting.
