    But the comparative price is normally calculated to 1 Liter or 1 KG. Surely not 500 Liter (132.08603 Gallons).

    Uhm, that's 5 hectoliters. A year's supply, I guess. That would make sense at frist sight.

    TRWTF is buying beer cans in that discount.

    Sometimes they have a decent beer but it's sold in 33 or 50 cl bottles.

    No. 500 Litres makes 109.985 gallons, or, more to the point 879.877 pints.

    Well, unless you're using those feeble American gallons and pints, but why would you want to do that?

    Better the American gallons and pints than the beer served in those pints... ;)

    The Virginia Department of Education used to include QR codes in their email signatures. I have no idea why they did that, just put a link maybe?

  • Pabz (unregistered)

    The school clearly doesn't want people to be able to view the handbook on the same device as they are viewing the website on - that would be far too convenient. Instead everyone must have a second device available that is capable of scanning the QR code from the first device.

    That reminds me. Crane needed load-testing. After all the stress-tests were completed (successfully) the surveyor said "Oh, oh. The certificates for the weights we used are in short tonnes. Let's do them all over again." Absolutely hilarious. (after 15 years or so.)

    It's PEBKAC, I tell you. PEBKAC! Wait, I forgot. Which did I use in last week's article?

    PEBKAC. I know because somebody else wrote "PEBCAK" and I was about to correct them when I realised it works just as well.

    Problems are often commutative.

    Unfortunately I fear I understand the QR point: there is still a large number of people that can "perceive" text only if it's printed on paper. They would print emails and website pages, and in that case links would not work anymore. Typing them back is challenging, so the QR solves the printing problem. But I would still expect that the QR or a normal text would work as a normal link for everyone else.

    Never tried that. OTOH, I never tried having s*x in a canoe, either.

    Sadly the burger one appears to be fake.

  • SomeRandomName (unregistered)

    Maybe the burger people were struggling from having eaten their own product. After all, according to the top of the box, "IT'SZ SERIOUSIY SPICY".

    PEBKAC or PEBCAK, either way it's a wetware problem

    Sure sounds like a case of English printing on packaging that's being used in a non-English speaking country. Perhaps somebody got an excellent price on a botched run of burger clamshells and figured "What the heck, my customers don't know any different." Heck, whoever bought the clamshells for the restaurant may not know any different themselves.

    A closer look shows some characters that definitely aren't the ordinary Latin ones. Whether they're Cyrillic, Grek, Hangul, or what I can't say.

  • SomeRandomName (unregistered)

    Indeed. The blurring makes it hard to tell, but it looks like Hangul to me. I was in reality joking about a spurious reason for the sidetext, but couldn't resist quoting it exactly.

    My own experience is that it depends strongly on the specific spices, but high levels of capsaicin (my current max is seven bird's eye chilis or just one habanero, in a single meal, with plenty of full-fat milk to get the residue out of my mouth)(1) will, indeed, give me ... unexpected intestinal mobility, let's say.

    Not actual diarrhea, mind you, but pretty damned close.

    (1) Advice from the late Mrs Cynic, based on her time growing up in various bits of the US Desert Southwest. Capsaicin is fat-soluble, and prefers milk-fats to actual water.

    I get hiccups from hot curries. Not mild, easily concealable hiccups, oh no, massive diaphragm spasms that scream 'look at me' to the entire restaurant. I have to be very careful when eating out.
