I'm pretty sure you can alter that Tora so that your posts to groups don't show up in newsfeeds.
As far as the admin and I can figure out, you can't control that. Posts to open groups show up in news feeds; posts to closed and secret groups don't. We may be changing ours to a closed group.

Re: TIL...

Today I learned thatI am in no way (car) mechanically inclined. What should have been a simple enough task - changing a light bulb on my car's front running/headlight - took only five minutes in that youtube video, but took me about an hour and a half. Fuck that. I can pay somebody to do it next time.

Growing up, we had a white, gas stovetop. Beyond the usual food spills (common to any stovetop) that could be cleaned off in the usual way, I can't remember any particular problems. What's the issue? Is the gas somehow discolouring it? It shouldn't do.

^The grease splatters are impossible to get off it without scratching it the hell up; it's a cheap, piece of crap stove the builders put in.

I learned that Buitoni's ravioli feeds two people per package. The tortellini feeds two people per package. The Angel Hair pasta feeds about 4 very large people who probably haven't eaten all day.

GEEZ, that's a lot of pasta.

Recently, I learned that since i'm not a Mesomorph, I can never be one. It's all in my genes.

Still, I'm flattered that some people think I'm thin.
