    Scissors for pizza?
    WTF?  There's no way you can preserve the structural integrity with scissors.

    Scissors for pizza was a fad here (sold on TV) until people realized it only really worked with cardboard pizzas.
    I have seen some places where they cut with a knife.  Lot of work.  A big see saw machete thing or a slicer is what is used 99/100 places here.
    The love he receives is the love that is saved
  • I don't know anyone who still uses the pizza cutters that they bought in.. I guess the 90s/early 2000s.

    Everyone uses a scissor, or a knife. Atleast here in Sweden. Amongst people I know. And we have many pizza places and great pizzas here.

    Scissors to cut up pizza is lifehack no 1
    Lifehack?  Yeah if your pizza is a piece of cardboard...

    Try that on a slice of good NY pizza or a Chi-town deep dish, it ain't happenin son...

    Scissors...

    I knew when I posted that you would respond exactly like the above. Agree with me for once.

    You are still making a mess of that with scissors and don't try to pretend otherwise.
    Unless you have special pizza scissors?
    That would be a ridiculous product lol

    I was just kidding, I've actually never seen one of those pizza cutting things.
    Off course, when we eat pizza here in Sweden we normally use scissors to cut the pieces with, I was wrong again my mistake  :)

    * $500 toaster ovens
    * Cat walking leash
    * Standup desks
    * Smart watches that require a giant smart phone in your pocket to work
    * $500 coolers



    I am guilty of all 3 and I will tell you they all make an absolute difference.
    Coolers I get. I know a $500 can keep ice for days, I wouldn't pay that ever, but I know there's a difference.
    $500 toaster oven though? My $59 toaster oven from Costco toasts, has a timer, bakes like a mini over, has 2 racks. What else can a toaster oven really do?

    Circular robotic vacuum cleaners.
    We visited friend today who have one of these.  They said it is constantly getting hung up on something and then starts beeping.  Annoying and ultimately a sign of laziness. 

    These are amazing!
    Its not being lazy. We have a 2 year old, 4 year old and a dog. 2 hours after we vacuum its messy again. This is just great to do when we leave the house to know it will be clean for our kids when we come home. It doesn't replace a regular vacuum because it doesn't get as much stuff, but we run ours every time we leave the house, usually about twice a day.

    Yeah, I would love one of these just to deal with the constant cat hair on my laminate floors, but I can't because sometimes my cat vomits. I looked up what happens if a Roomba runs over vomit (or dog shit, whatever), and it isn't good. Worse for carpet of course, but still... I don't need puke dragged all over my place, lol.

    :lol: You're hilarious! Thanks for the cat vomit visual. I'm picturing coming home only to find the vacuum lurching along trying to get through a clump of regurgitated food or feces and just spinning in circles smearing it all over. 
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Today's packaging.  This isn't a product that's ridiculous in itself, but it is kinda ridiculous that companies spend as much in R&D for the box your fancy tech product comes in than the product itself.   I got a room of super cool boxes that are useless but seem way too nice to just throw away.  :) :|
  • rgambsrgambs Posts: 11,866
    They are ridiculously sharp little boxes aren't they?

    What do you mean it's not a joke? Like, I assume it exists, but isn't it at least satire at Trump's expense? I assumed so because of the "Trumpy" part. And the comb-over. And the eyebrows. It's kinda funny. Like a gag gift, lol. How is it not a joke? Is this thing being sold at the WH gift shop or what??
