Lefty Blogger Exposes How Political
Lies Are Spread Over Liberal Blogosphere

Begging the question: is a blogger who seeks truth eligible to be called a lefty?
  Someone on Twitter asked me last night if I’d heard about what was happening in Minnesota with the poor. I didn’t, so they sent me a link to Crooks & Liars that talked about a law proposed there that would make it illegal for poor people to carry more than $20 cash!
[...]
So that’s the claim. I sort of skimmed it and thought to myself “Sounds like a serious charge. “ Up until quite recently, I would have left it at that because Crooks and Liars was one of my go-to sites for information.

Now I think they might want to shorten their name to the more concise and appropriate Liars. [Lee Stranahan: HowPolitical Lies Spread on the Left]

Vac-U-Box

I took a flier on this Vac-U-Box (why does that sound pornographic?) a few weeks ago; cost about $20.  Here's Deborah Ball and "world renowned chef Tom Jefferies" (the plastic chef? snort) talking about it.

 It's actually like one big Food Saver bag, and  quite a bit roomier than I had first imagined.  I've taken to putting naked bread in the thing,  and so far it's kept stuff like new.  MoSup was delighted with this Woot because it's tidy. We've had a running battle over bread storage.  She likes stuff in a bread box. But what happens is the older bread gets buried on the bottom,  and the next thing you know it's green. She didn't like my solution of just throwing it all in a heap on the counter. 

The video makes the claim (several times) that the fast acting vacuum will suck out all the air in less than a minute.  I timed it: actual time, 1 minute 22 seconds.  Here's the part that will sour MoSup (I predict).  In order to open the thing you have to press an air release valve on top.  It takes several seconds before the vacuum is sufficiently lost to allow opening.  How stupid.  A "cork in the hole" solution would have been instantaneous, and far less expensive. 

The functionality, then, depends on who the user is. I've used our Food Saver for ten years now, and I do it religiously.  MoSup on the other hand has used it exactly zero times.  So, as long as there's one person like me in the house, this gadget will work for you. 

You're welcome.
