Favorite technology life hacks?
I'm using a paper clip to cut cheese, it works well.
I have crackers my friend.
It cuts more precise but I'm not trying very hard. I still recommend it.
but why is the cheese yellow? you know that milk is white, right? one theory is that yellow cheese came about when all of their white cheese spoiled. you know what else is yellow? the puss in cow's milk. is it made from infected cows?

I buy fancy cheese too, doesn't make the cheap stuff any less cheese, hipster
too many people on /g/ think of it like their local bar. conversations that belong elsewhere on 4chan (and would improve those boards) end up here on /g/ and - in some sort of double whammy - make this board worse in addition to depriving the appropriate board of potentially good content.
hiding threads is appropriate for threads that are on topic for the board, but not interesting to me personally.
This thread is not the first criterion, so the second is irrelevant. I'll report the thread, which should automatically hide it in the meantime while mods work through their report queue and quietly delete it, which will teach exactly 1 person that off topic threads do get acted upon.
tb.h fa.m I think you'd be better off cutting it with the shiny part of pic related
You know what, until recently I was thinking the same thing. But now I see this place as something special. You don't have to look at every watch thread, but having a variety of content makes this board the comfiest board on 4chan.
You just saved me $1.48 friend
You're looking for a web forum if you want a comfy, holistic place. Otherwise, if you're interested in fashion occasionally or tv or cooking, go drop in on /fa/ or /tv/ or /ck/ once in a while.
there's nothing preventing you from dabbling; on the contrary, you'll get a good mix of other boards and their interests, memes, etc...
moot himself said that the silo'ing trend of people trying to justify every off-topic thread in their "comfy" board is ruining 4chan. stop contributing to that.
I think any board that doesn't have a small population ends up doing that. For example /sci/ threads are usually pretty on topic, but people try to post anything and everything on /v/.
For a while even the active boards in their contemporary times (e.g. /g/ in 2010) would only suffer off topic threads in the form of meta threads (talking about tripfags for instance). It was common to have threads asking people what boards you went to, and everyone would reply with half a dozen or so boards alongside /g/.
I'm not saying we should just have one board that combines 50 different subjects, and I do visit other boards. I pointed out the watch threads because I don't understand why they invaded /g/. We have /diy/ and it's a very nice board for those sorts of things. I'm just saying that having an occasional "cheese cutting" thread makes this board more enjoyable. Generals are cancer regardless.
this is the "proper" way to cut cheese.
Americans don't use wires to cut soft cheese; typically americans just use a knife. I put quotation marks around proper because it's actually the more involved way that a cheese snob would insist on - something you'd be more likely to find in Europe rather than the US.
This is all pretty googleable. At this point if you still have questions you should go look for answers on your own.
Working on sensitive electronics? You can ground yourself by sticking a metal object such as a key in an electrical socket.
Save gas by throwing your car into park as you coast down a hill.
Dogs are arctic creatures. They're covered with fur for a reason. Keeping them out in a temperate climate is cruel as it puts them under constant heat stress. To fix this, put them in the refrigerator every night. You'll hear how excitedly they scratch and bark at finally finding the relief they've been so desperate for.
I don't eat that much cheese, and don't like accumulating junk that I might use only sporadically. Calling me a slob makes you sound hyper-defensive.
More importantly, you should be replying to the person who insists on just using a cheese plane and a knife for everything, not me. My only stake in this conversation is to explain to people who don't understand the premise of dedicated cheese cutting tools.

I just don't get it man.
Welcome to the 20th century.
Now I'm hungry for parmesan and I have to wait until I'm at home in 5 hours to eat it.
Also that was from Trentino, not from Parma.
I'm pretty sure it's called Trentingrana, then.

Wait... This can't be true.
I know Sweden are inventors of a lot of things people take for granted nowadays, but who the heck doesn't use one of these things?
Norways should try to make the rest of the world evolve from their barbaric ways of slicing cheese.
You guys are fucking niggers. Cheddar cheese is objectively the lowest tier cheese. Even a mildly more sophisticated cheese like Havarti blows Cheddar out of the water. Keep eating garbage you fucking mac using autists
Bothers me as much as people handling fruit and vegetables without a decent peeler.
In my chinese cartoons they drag out giant knives.
Unless you're using the loop end as as the world's most primitive grater, you might be better off using (unflavored) dental floss as a cutter. Possibly thread, or even monofilament, assuming it's food safe.
Good job, OP. No single taskers in this kitchen!
Oh look it's this thread again
>the puss in cow's milk
You mean "somatic cell count", which is the term the industry uses to describe pus in milk. They have an acceptable amount. Dairy consumers are disgusting fat fucks.

Discounting the "partially hydrogenated soybean oil, soy lethicin, and a ton of other shit that ISN'T cultured milk" cheeses like American "cheese" I'd place Jack, Colby, Colby Jack, Queso Fresca (it's literally curdled milk and chipotle juice and a ton of salt), and all of their various versions (pepper jack, etc) well below a good sharp cheddar.
What the fuck ghetto ass cities do you people live in? How have you never seen these? Do yankees just not have cheese slicers? Man you should move to a real state where cheese slicers are ubiquitous, like Texas.
Not that anon but it gets worse. I moved from Scandinavia to Ireland to study. I saw one of the girls I was sharing the house with trying to cut soft cheese with a butter knife and failing.
I gave her a cheese slicer from the drawer and she tried to cut it using the side of it, as if it were a knife.
>pull out cheese slices
>look at label
>discover the cheese of your childhood memories is not cheese
Mfv I can name half this cheeses...
And their toilet roll holders don't have the flap thing. Fucking backwards-ass country.
Nope, wrong. Your going to smash and tear your mozz like that. Pic related, is the best knife for cutting soft cheese. And these knives are like 4U$D, but be careful weebs they sharp as fug, on second thought stick to the string.
The only one in this "lifehack" series that's actually good wasn't posted but it's wrapping christmas light strands around clothes hangars. We've done it for years now and never got them tangled up again.
