I dropped a cup full of soup and it managed to hit the counter in just the right way as to keep (nearly) all of the soup inside. So now the cup is stuck to the surface by vacuum, full of soup, and there are no easy life choices from here on.

Hold a large bowl at the edge and slide the cup into it.

Slide cardstock or heavy paper underneath the cup, and then you can turn it over.

just wipe up all the soup around it and leave it there as a surprise for the next person

Poke a hole in the top, put a straw through, and drink your soup ... your gross countertop soup

This fungus I found growing on a dead branch.

We're boned.

"This species was chosen as fungus of the year for 2009 by the German Mycological Society." Well congrats to you Blue Fungus!

When activated by external treatments such as high temperature (42 °C (108 °F)), exposure to vapors of toxic solvents, or contact with a water-toluene mixture, T. caerulea produces an antibiotic named cortalcerone (2-hydroxy-6H-3-pyrone-2-carboxaldehyde hydrate), that inhibits the growth of Streptococcus pyogenes.[12] The metabolic biosynthesis of this compound starting from the initial precursor glucose has also been studied.[13][14][15]

Neat.

The alien invasion is happening again just as the great historian and news reporter H.G. Wells experienced.

Limp drink syndrome.

They all look sad.

They tried, dammit!

Your repost is about as virile as those bottles.

suffocated Grape

the community demands a taste report

I wonder if that tiny portion of the grape tasted any different...

What happened when OP squashed the suffocated grape?

It let out a little whine.

Unfortunately it wasn’t mine and committed the crime of throwing it away because he was scarred for his life

Pretty sure baby carrots are just regular carrots that were "too ugly" and they were cut down until only the nice looking part is left.

That's an adult carrot

That's a baaaaaby carrot.

This tree I found hiking looks like a forest monster watching over you.

Put some red reflectors where the eyes would go and give someone a heart attack.

That would make at least one person shit their pants.

What if that really was a forest monster watching over you today, but your brain perceived it to be nothing more than sticks and wood?

I've never shit my pants out of fear and I don't know if it ever actually happens. But if anything could do it to me, it would be leaving my tent to pee and seeing that thing silhouetted against the twilight sky with reflective eyes.

Those are some OLD New Years glasses

If only it was october the 56th.

What

That actually makes me feel a little uneasy.

My fiancé and I drink beer at the same rate, but the foam on our glasses reveal the difference in gulp sizes.

Those rings are also a great indicator that your glasses were properly cleaned before serving.

I’ll respectfully disagree. I’m one of those Cicerone trained over-achieving bartenders. Check this out:

No need to read the whole article but here is the snippet:

You can also beer clean “test” your glassware. The three most common techniques are the sheeting test, the salt test, and the lacing test.

The sheeting test involves dipping a glass in water. If the glass is clean, the water will evenly coat it. If there is an invisible film, the water will break up into droplets on the inside surface.

For the salt test, sprinkle salt on the inside of a wet glass – it will not adhere to the parts that still contain a greasy film.

The lacing test happens after a glass has been filled with beer (so we recommend not wasting your finest pours with this particular test). As a beer is consumed, the foam should adhere to the inside of the glass in uniform, parallel rings forming a lace pattern. If there is film, there may be a random pattern from the foam or no pattern at all.

CHEERS!! And disregard the disrespectful b-holes hovering around here.

I dunno. Some in my family are bottlers and it was drilled into me as a kid: "FOAM STICKS TO THE INSIDE OF DIRTY BOTTLES."

TIL most beer glasses I drink from are dirty.

Fuck this. I’m going down the Winchester for a pint & wait until this all blows over.

You know, people said that Brexit would be bad, but this is just ridiculous. Way to be overdramatic, Britain.

Nice knowing you. Thanks for the tea n whatnot.
