Comment Re:Apparently no one here has worked in a restaura (Score 1) 165

Long before kitchen grease was used for biofuel, it was and still is used to make soap.
35 years ago when I started working in the restaurant business, the grease had always
been collected in a barrel out back when it was time to change the fryers. and about once
a month a company would collect the contents of the barrel to go towards the production of soap.
Been that way for the last 35 years.

When I first read the above, I was horrified. Then I realized that it actually said soap, not soup like my mind substituted.

I used to have pages of notes in my calculator back in college. And this was over a decade ago.

If it is possible to actually cheat with a graphics calculator, you wrote the test wrong. For any math algebra and beyond, showing your work is far more important than what the actual answer is.

I am liking the trend (started primarily by Paizo) of role-playing companies that give Print + PDF bundles for their books. I love having access to reference PDFs on my laptop. When regular ebooks start coming bundled with hardcovers or at a more reasonable price, they will definitely take off. As it is, who wants to pay more than a softcover price for a novel?
