This sweater guarantees me a dramatically increased number of cordial interactions with strangers in public

Idea: enabling "quote tweets" in Hometown but only for accounts that are self-identified as bots (aka the Service actor in activitypub). That way you're by definition not using the feature to dogpile on a person. There are so many times I want to surface some cool bot content but with a little commentary or context.

Note that this is just an idea, not a plan for Hometown. Curious to think what others think of it.

Testing a theory that dalle2 does worse at generating things the smaller they get, I discovered that it makes really mean eye charts.

food dream 

I bought fancy peppercorns that were perfectly smooth and iridescent

Bean experiment 

Garbanzo bean report: the Rancho Gordon won by a landslide -- nuttier flavor, and way better texture. The generic chickpea got waterlogged and started to fall apart, and lacked the depth of flavor.

Bean experiment 

For the pinto, we were split on flavor; Rancho Gordo had a sweeter note. I preferred the Ranch Gordo overall, and we all agreed that the texture of the Rancho Gordo was better. The generic cooked less evenly and held up less well

Bean experiment 

My friends and I cooked Rancho Gordo beans and generic beans and did a blind taste test. We have tried black beans and pinto so far

The Rancho Gordo were more robust for both bean, they held up better and we're firmer at fully cooked.

For the black beans, this meant we all agreed that their skin was too thick, the generic bean had a preferable texture as a result. We also rated the flavor of the generic black beans preferable to Ranch Gordo

incredible that I worked at Internet Archive as long as I did and still could not identify a single grateful dead song
