Re: Nespresso capsules

I saw some people bringing used Nespresso capsules to the Nespresso shops, can I know what is done, is it some loyalty program..? Nope, at least nothing I am aware of. I order the capsules online from the Nespresso store and always request some bags for the used one. Upon delivery I pass the bag wi...

Re: Has anyone tried kombucha?

That's roughly the price for some kombuchas on Amazon Fresh. https://www.amazon.sg/Captain-Kombucha-California-Raspberry-1L/dp/B07PXMGPZ3/ I actually ordered 2 bottles of different kinds after our discussion. They were clearly diluted comparing to what my wife normally gets with the home made approa...

Re: Has anyone tried kombucha?

Scobys look indeed like a blob of toilet paper left to rotten floating in tea, but fortunately smells not so bad. And there is also some fun degassing it after fermentation. https://c.tenor.com/Xq5VbLPx-aEAAAAM/pop-explode.gif I believe none of the health benefits claimed has been ever verified in a...

Thoughts? Where do you get yours and how much does It typically cost you?
My wife is an enthusiast. Home made only. Myself, I don't like it that much. Drinkable but basically that's it. As of the claimed health benefits I am not the believer.

Re: Russia vs Ukraine- thoughts?

The Ukrainians are now, unfortunately, starting to treat POW's poorly (shooting them in the leg if they are otherwise unwounded for example, presumably so stop them having any chance of rejoining the fight) The morale of the Russian troops is very low. If they are shot I would expect they shot them...

Re: What is my PR chance

I heard that working at A*STaR gives a better chance of getting accepted for PR, and that was the entire reason I started on my PhD journey. I was desperate after the first rejection, and I am trying all I can to improve my chance. It may give a better chance but the difference is pretty much negli...

Re: Russia vs Ukraine- thoughts?

"Russia says its economy is taking 'serious blows' as isolation grows" https://www.cnn.com/2022/03/02/business/russia-markets-economy-sberbank/index.html I'm wondering if the effects are as bad as CNN is reporting, which is contrary to some opinions here, and if it is, then would it make much diffe...

Re: Russia vs Ukraine- thoughts?

I think China is quietly watching things unfold so they can do the same thing to TW in time to come. Not sure. I don't know enough about people of TW and the political situation around to compare and speculate but Russia not only officially recognized Ukraine as an independent state but also was a ...

Re: Russia vs Ukraine- thoughts?

They have overstepped. But *unpopular opinion* here. Show me a military power that is not starting military actions in other countries for lame reasons. You know who is covered in this list. Really? I would think that most would be on the Ukrainian’s side. Especially because the plight of Ukraine i...

Re: Russia vs Ukraine- thoughts?

Putin was, and is, a corrupt thug who has probably gone insane, given his ramblings in his Monday speech. It's naked aggression of the worst kind, and because of the greed of the western world, imposing sanctions on Russia that would make a real difference (cutting off SWIFT, for example, or an oil...

Re: Russia vs Ukraine- thoughts?

Putin sees Ukraine, at least its Eastern part as the part of some great Russian empire he keeps dreaming of. I don't really think he considers NATO as a primary threat but clearly if Ukraine joins NATO the imperial aspirations of Putin would have this important part destroyed. I see Putin as a pers...
