    Friday and beer. Here's the lyrics if you were interested https://lyricstranslate.com/en/kaljalaulu-beer-song.html
  4. Bought some mac & cheese from Lidl today and noticed that the Swedish instructions had a hilarious typo. "Använd inte en minigun eller ugns grillfunktion!" (do not use a minigun or grill function of your oven). Now I have this image in my head of your average Swede having a minigun right next to his toaster. :haha:

    what grinds your gears

    Out of curiosity. How high is your rent and how big is your apartment? My rent is 540€ and I live in a typical 27,5 square meter one room suicide apartment. I think it's annoyingly expensive. Other expensive things that grind my gears: Obtaining a motor vehicle. Thanks to car tax that is included in the price of new vehicles. Owning a motor vehicle. Annual vehicle tax for my car is 440$. In return for that money I get nothing. Oh, and the mandatory periodical technical inspection is 100$ every year. Driving a motor vehicle. Regular gas costs about 6,5$ per gallon (again high taxes). Food is expensive, beer is expensive, cigarettes are super expensive. Basically everything that you can find in a supermarket is expensive.

    Did you buy anything recently?

    TNP-B periscope for T-54/T-55 main battle tank. Not sure what I'm going to do with it. It was just too cool not to buy. I'm guessing someone salvaged it when Finnish Defence Forces were upgrading their equipment years ago.
  8. Oh dog, I chipped about 1/5 of one of my back tooth when eating Karelian pie this morning. :kdR94: How is this even possible? Karelian pie is softer than the food at Mc Donalds.

    I didn't even realise it was part of my own tooth until I had thrown it in the trash bin and started wondering how it got into my food.

      My thoughts exactly. I kinda knew my teeth are not in that good shape but I didn't know it was this bad. Let's see how expensive this will get.:doublefacehoof:

      The free public healthcare only charged 59€ to repair my tooth. Private sector price would have been around 180€ so I saved about 120€. Then again I paid over 6k€ in taxes last year and this is the only thing I got in return. :flutterrage: At least the service was 6/5.

  9. Happy midsummer to y'all! Let's all celebrate the nightless night.

    Did you buy anything recently?

    Today I found a "new" front seat and "new" throttle body for my daily driver 1988 Chevy Caprice. I swapped the driver's seat and now both of my shoulders hit the back rest when I'm driving. The old seat turned out to be a real safety hazard. It had cracks all over the metal frame. I can't believe that I've been driving it for 2 years like this. It was just awful. I'm planning to change the TBI unit when my summer vacation begins. The throttle body it has now has so much play that I had to install double springs to close the butterflies properly at idle.

    Luna would be very proud!

    If it's organic fruits, it's OK to eat the peels.
