Is "dead popular" not a reason?

I love baths.
Since around 2000, most people I mention this to are horrified. "I couldn't lie in a tub of my own filth!" or some such.

I fucking love baths. Have at least one a day, often two, and don't even have a proper shower. My mental ex who hates me used to turn her nose up at the notion of baths, describing them as "dirty".

Sorry for two posts in a row but an obvious thing I just found out much to my disgust is that, once opened, a jar of pickled gherkins will go off. I'd always assumed that they'd last forever due to the pickle juice but it says on the jar to eat them within three days of opening.

Also, a thing that might not seem immediately obvious to most but is obvious to me given the amount of maths videos I watch on YouTube is that if you add consecutive odd numbers together, you get the square numbers.

ie: 1 and 3 is 4

1, 3 and 5 is 9

1, 3, 5 and 9 is 16

1, 3, 5, 9 and 16 is 25

and so on....

You may not if you eat them, but they will.

Thank you! My hat was so fucked from learning something so o2o210us that in my haste I fucked up.

That had always been the case with pickled gherkins in the past but this latest jar I bought didn't last very long at all. I blame Brexit.

I'll say this - I've never had an issue with pickled onions going off.

If it's under the vinegar surely it never goes off, that's the fucking point. Eggs, gherkins, onions, corpses - same rules apply.

They oxidise a little I think. They definitely get softer after the jar is opened, but it’s more a case of “best before” in the truest sense, and I’ve never had a jar turn lethal even after months open.

Until my parents got their kitchen done a few years ago I reckon they might've had jarred, pickled stuff that was probably lurking in there since before I was born.

They did have a tin of black treacle go pop once though.

Exactly. Makes so much sense and is blatantly obvious but I'd never realised what a lovely little quirk of maths it is. Still kicking myself for getting my example so wrong.

So the second difference of the square numbers (i.e. the difference between consecutive odd numbers) is always 2.
The third difference of the cube numbers is always 6 (= 3 x 2 x 1):
1, 8, 27, 64, 125, 216, 343, 512, 729, 1000 -> 7, 19, 37, 61, 91, 127, 169, 217, 271 -> 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54 -> 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6.
The fourth difference of the fourth powers is always 24 (= 4 x 3 x 2 x 1); and so on.

Factorials, innit.
2! = 2
3! = 6
4! = 24
And so on

Yeah - many traditional preserves have now been sweetened/made less acidic/made more palatable to the extent they need to be kept in the fridge.

The word “doff” means to take off clothing (like doffing your cap), and is the archaic opposite of “donning” to put on clothes (“don we now our gay apparel”).

And are contractions of 'do off' and 'do on', respectively.

The transactions I don't recognise on my credit card and was about to contact my bank's fraud line about are from the few days I had the card tucked into a pocket in my phone case, where I also keep my debit card in another pocket, and when paying contactless I usually just hold the phone up to the machine and it works through the case. What a muppet.

Was proof reading my Polish friends uni work on proper hygiene and PPE guidelines and assumed she'd done an interesting translation when referring to designated donning and doffing areas, but nope, that's the standard hospital terminology.

I learned to keep my cards completely separate from each other after some incidents involving higher than expected tube fares, having inadvertently - on more than one occasion - tapped out with a different card from the one I'd tapped in with.

Honeysuckle isn't a weird foreign plant for posh gardens, it actually grows natively and wild in the UK and you can see it in hedges.[1]
