Restaurant Introduces 'Clear Pumpkin Pie' And People Have Some Issues

I dunno what everyone’s up in arms about, because the people who made this are straight up genius. 

Alinea is a restaurant in Chicago that has for years been considered one of the finest restaurants in the world, earning a preposterously rare Three Star rating from Michelin. The fella at the helm is Grant Achatz, and I watched his episode of Chef’s Table, and he is a staggering culinary genius with an incredible story: Dude lost his sense of taste to cancer and got it back. And resumed creating insanity like translucent pumpkin pie. 

I’m in. Because of madness like this:

You might look at this pie and think, what happened? This is wrong.

But that’s because you haven’t seen Grant’s episode of Chef’s Table, and therefore you are not yet a believer. This guy served a balloon as desert and diners loved it. 

Behold: disbelievers.

The upshot of all this is that Alinea is something like $ 170-350 a  person, so very few of us will be able to personally try the clear, wondrous pie. So just do yourselves a favor and watch that episode of Netflix’s Chef’s Table. And save up, I guess.

Trump Had Some Specific Backstage Demands When He Was On SNL

Way back in 2015, Saturday Night Live invited presidential candidate Donald Trump to host the show. Nobody was particularly excited about the idea, including the cast and even Donald himself. It turns out, during his time working with the program’s creative team, everyone got pretty excited about a sketch idea that he absolutely hated and refused to be a part of!

Taran Killam, a cast member at the time, has commented on how little fun President Trump was to work with:

Donald Trump appeared in eight sketches during his time on the show, including this particularly cringe-worthy parody of Hotline Bling:

In a recent interview with Huffiest, SNL writer Bryan Tucker told the story of one sketch Trump absolutely hated:

Apparently Trump was also a bit unconventional in how he arrived at the show:

Perhaps in a happier alternate universe, Donald Trump took part in the Giving Tree sketch and America got the laughs it truly deserves. Until then, we’ll always wonder what the world may have been like.

Here Are Some Jobs You'll Wish You'd Known About When You Were In School

Growing up (thanks to TV and school) we always heard about specific professions: doctor, lawyer, police officer, fire fighter, nurse — more “standard occupations” — oh, and reality TV star, of course.

But as we pursued higher education, we still had this limited number of professions swirling around in our minds as the only options post graduation. But, as it turns out, there are a plethora of jobs out there that we’d never heard of or really considered — all of which make decent money. Time to start thinking about those… It’s never too late, right? 

Redditor EduardoA96 asked the question we all should have asked long ago — “What is a great career path that kids in college aren’t aware exists?”

So, lost souls, here are some professions to consider:

1. Perfusionist 

Oh perfect, no one knows about my career. Only 3,500 people doing it nationwide and we are in a job shortage. I am a Perfusionist and run the Cardiopulmonary bypass machine during heart surgeries. Get a Bachelor of Science degree, then go to a Perfusion School (1 or 2 year program). I am 4 years out of school and made six figures last year. I probably averaged 30 to 35 hours per week. It can be stressful because you can kill a patient very easily (won’t happen unless you’re careless) but it is very rewarding to know you are saving people’s lives everyday.

2. Accent / manners tutor

If you’re from the UK/US, some people in China will pay you great money to babysit their kids so their kids can learn the “right” accent and manners. They’ll prefer someone with a college education since it’s more prestigious, and I know someone who was earning $ 50k straight away.

3. Stagehand

Backstage

Stagehand, I am 22 I started at my local community college that I went to school. The starting position was $ 16 an hour and I was learning stagecraft, how to mix, focus lights, use the rail. Soon after doing that I started working for my local IATSE Local (Stagehand Union) and I am currently an apprentice there. I make about 40$ an hour doing the work and it is fantastic. I get to work for cool artists like Prince, Fleetwood Mac, the Who and see some really cool gear. Many people don’t really think about it.

4. Flight Attendant (although the consensus seems to be that it’s a better deal for people working outside the United States)

Flight Attendants. I recently started working as one. I get 72 days of paid holidays a year, more than enough money, they cover my language learning expenses and medicine is already free in my country. It is not an easy job, but interesting and beneficial one.

After being a junior FA you can become senior FA and then an instructor.

5. Card Dealer

Card dealing, just moved to Vegas. In 4-5 years you could work your way up to a top tier casino (cousin made it into Ceasers in 18 months but was a special case). Depending on your game could easily net 6 figures a year. Edit: tokes for Sunday and Monday combined were 700 usd a dealer. Gotta love football season.

6. Museum Worker

Museums! I am currently in my third year of an awesome museum studies program at my university and I also work part time in a museum on campus. It is an extremely diverse field. You could do: • Curatorial work – basically object preservation, both preventative and repairs • Collections Management – overseeing the accessioning, deaccessioning, cataloguing, and storage of objects • Educational coordinator – create and execute educational programs and collaborate with exhibit designers • Exhibit design – making those awesome exhibits you see, from the placement of the text and pictures to the actual physical construction • Basically anything else – museums need all kinds of people from all kinds of backgrounds. Digital design, video production, fundraising, HVAC, etc.

Museums are amazing and fun and creative. And you can pair museums with any area of study too.

7. Packaging Engineer

You basically engineer the packaging for products (so you hate that plastic clam shell packaging? You can be the solution!).

Great pay, interesting work and the job outlook is awesome. You can’t name many companies that don’t use some kind of packaging!

Not many school have the program, but if yours does, I highly recommend it.

8. Lesser-known health care professions. 

Doctor made a tomography

A lot of the smaller healthcare professions get forgotten by kids in college or high school. Everyone focuses on being a doctor, nurse, dentist, or pharmacist, but there are so many other professions in healthcare. Speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, respiratory therapists, medical imaging technologists (X-ray, MRI, US, Nuclear Medicine), radiation therapists, dietitians, audiologists, chiropodists, laboratory technologists. I’m sure I’ve forgotten some. They all tend to pay middle-class income or better with reasonable hours, they require specialized knowledge and skills that put your brain to work at least a little bit each day, and you get to work with patients who are typically quite appreciative.

9. Air Traffic Controller (especially in Canada). 

If you’re in Canada, air traffic controller. All you need is a high school education. There’s lots of testing to get in, iq and personality, but if you do you’ll get paid while you’re in training. Then, depending on where you end up and how much overtime you put in, you can make over $ 150k per year.

These Stories Of Horrible Roommates Offer Some Red Flags To Look For Before Signing A Lease

Roommates. When moving somewhere, having one is taken into consideration for no reason other than to increase our quality of life. The average American spends roughly one-quarter of their paycheck on rent and utilities, and having that extra 12.5% of your income freed up by splitting the month to month costs of simply existing with someone seems like a no-brainer. That is, of course, until you hear the nightmare stories people have about roommates.

Thankfully I’ve had a pretty positive experience with all of my roommates in college, but not everyone I knew was lucky. The worst I’ve experienced was having a suitemate that you could smell through the walls. As bad as that was, I wasn’t the one that had to live with him, and my roommate and I were treated to several late night rants by his roommate and some very high-end air fresheners in our shared bathroom that said roommate also purchased as a form of mercy for us and anyone that visited the suite.

Others weren’t so lucky. Perpetual house guests, bad hygiene, fighting, late with rent, and letting filth pile up were among the dozens of nightmare stories I’ve heard from friends on the topic. 

User ShallowTits on Reddit asked the community, “What are ‘red flags’ for roommates?” If you’re planning on sharing a place with one anytime soon, you’re definitely going to want to add these to your list.

  1. The number one offender that all refuse to deal with is the Kidult

    Mom moves him in while he watches. Mom sets his room up while he stares into his phone. Mom shops grocery andcooks it for him while he complains he’s hungry. Mom fills the fridge with pre-cooked meals while he eats. Mom cleans up everything and leaves.

    Congratulations! Now you’re his mom.

    juicius

    This is my most hated kind of person. Unfortunately it usually ends up being men. My #1 red flag for male roommatesAND potential boyfriends is if they are going from their mommy to me. Because inevitably you become their new mommy which is fun in exactly zero ways.

    Then there’s the problem of learned helplessness. You’ll ask them to do X, Y or Z chore and they go “oh I don’t know how” or they’ll give a half hearted attempt to prove to you that they can’t do it, so that you’ll have to from now on, etc.

    I WILL NOT DO IT. I was not born with the ability to cook, clean or organize. I had to learn it on my own, and so do YOU.

    blahblahblah539771

    This. I had to teach my boyfriend, who is 4 years older than me, how to cook for himself, do dishes, clean, etc. when we first lived together (with other people) towards the beginning of our relationship a few years back. I love him to death, and he’s a lot better at domestic things now, thank goodness. But 25 years as an only child getting doted on by his mom really did a number on him. Gotta nip that nonsense in the bud early.

  2. Several Take The Opinion Of Their Favorite Roommate Into Consideration

    If your cat loves them more than it loves you.

    Sir_Jorbxnor

    No one will believe this, and it will get buried, but I want to share, so fuck it.

    My dog tried to warn us about my best friend’s ex.

    She was sitting on our couch (in my wife’s normal spot), and we were all talking in the living room. My chihuahua is the most meek, timid, antisocial dog I’ve ever had. She runs if the wind blows too hard. Well this timid dog, in the middle of all of us, ran up to the ex, jumped on her lap, and took a huge shit. Then jumped off and ran. It happened so fast that I assumed her asshole must have had road rash. Everyone just stared in amazement for half a second, before said ex flipped her lid.

    Fast forward six months, ex turned out to be a heroin addict that took my buddy for everything he had that wasn’t nailed down. Thanks, dog, you tried to give us a heads up.

    pissclamato

  3. Of course you get the stray case that makes you wonder if you can scrimp enough change to not need a roommate

    Writes their name on their food in the fridge, and eats your food because you didn’t write your name on yours.

    yellowbythedozen

    This made me laugh. Has this actually happened to you?! (Not at university yet)

    enomancr

    Yeah this actually happened. Years ago, a co-worker was looking to move out of his parents house, and around the same time my GF and I were looking on moving in together. He talked us into renting a house so he could move in with us, which ended up being the start of a series of mistakes that would play out over the course of our one year lease.

    We each bought our own groceries, and we never took anything from him intentionally (might have used margarine he purchased for toast a few times if we were out of butter at best), but because of this he would write his name in permanent marker on everything he’d purchase, including each individual cheese slice in a pack. One day I had picked up a couple of steaks for the GF and I for a special dinner I was planning, and when I went to make them, there was only one left in the fridge.

    Turns out because I didn’t write our name on them, they was considered “free game”.

    yellowbythedozen

  4. One user tried to have others learn from his mistakes

    Oh, man. I have a couple, all gained from painful experience:

    • If someone, before they live with you, constantly comments on how clean your/someone’s place is, when in reality it’s just normal and not that clean at all, take this as a sign that you have very different standards of cleanliness.

    • A little more personal, but- if the person has a history of many friendships lasting less than one year (without excuses like moving or switching jobs), or seems to have a long trail of people that they no longer speak to (orall their old friends are described as crazy psychos), or seems like the greatest person in the world but inexplicably has no friends whatsoever.

    • If someone tells you who they are, listen. For example, when my old roommate said casually in conversation, “Yeah, my mom and my sisters don’t think that I’m capable of feeling empathy, like I’m a sociopath. They used to say that a lot.” The same roommate also once told me that she’s never felt guilt before, and didn’t know what it felt like (she’s almost 30). She also had a restraining order served on her a couple days after she moved in.RED FLAGS.

    • If friends of your potential roommate come to you and ask you if you’ve really thought this through, and mention that maybe you don’t know this person as well as you think you do, listen to those people.

    • If you’ve noticed that this person doesn’t seem to respect the property or personal space of others.

    Those are the biggest ones I’ve experienced.

    Eshlau

  5. And this one is a lesson for the post-college crowd

    In my experience, if you live with a stranger, than sometimes there’s a mutual understanding to be on good behavior. You may never be close, but it may not be an awful situation, either. Sometimes it doesn’t work this way, but in my experience it does a surprising amount of time.

    If you live with a friends, expect every one of their flaws to go up by a multiple of at least 5x. They always are down to drink? Guess what, your house is going to be a party house. Is their car a mess? Guess what, your house is going to be a disaster? Is their homework always late? Don’t be surprised if the rent is late, too.

    And with family, make that 10 – 20x. I knew a guy who always on the lazier side that moved in with his cousin. He then proceeded to stop paying rent and looking for a job. Be very cautious moving in with family.

    HarrysonTubman

  6. This one starts as general advice and gets more specific as it goes.

    Kind of too late to call, but if there’s a fight on move-in day, the whole thing is going to be a fight.

    Also, if one person tries to impose a cleaning schedule or rotation. These things are always doomed for disaster I find, because then there’s documented blame to go around if one person slacks off, even if it’s for a good reason (overloaded with school work, extreme bout of sickness, works 12 hours/day, etc.).

    Finally, if she disappears for four hours and returns bragging about spending $ 200 on professionally done glue-on nails one day, then has her grandparents over the next day bringing food because she’s broke, she has absolutely no understanding of time or money and will not be able to empathise with you when you say you can’t afford the $ 10 it costs to buy a pack of toilet paper because your part-time Wal-Mart job barely covers your share of the rent and your bus pass. She will also eat your food despite labelling and try to flush hard stalks of celery down the toilet.

    Anna_Draconis

  7. Then there’s the in house social aspect of living with someone. Make it clear ahead of time if you’re looking for extended family or just someone to pay the rent on time.

    Drinking habits are a big one. If you have a roommate who’s alright sober but always a problem drunk, consider having to deal with that every time. I’ve had roomates who were great except their drinking was too much.

    Another is expectations. My old roommate thought we’d be that household that goes out every weekend and has grill nights. I just wanted someone to pay rent. While it didn’t cause major problems with me, our third roommate was roped in a lot of social events he didn’t like and caused a great deal of tension

    Lennsik

  8. One user was clearly more experienced than the rest and gave the most in depth advice in the thread

    Having had several roommates, in various housing situations (house, apt, dorms, single-roomie, multiple housemates), my advice would be:

    • At same job for 18 months or more preferably: This helps show financial stability and so you are less likely to get stuck paying extra shares of rent.

    • A reliable vehicle: You don’t have to help them get around.

    • Reasonably clean vehicle: How they keep their car is in my experience a good indicator of how they will keep their personal area.

    • Do you know them already?: Think of the thing that you dislike most about them. That thing they do, that even if they’ve been your best friend for 10 years, still makes your jaw clench. Can you live with that as a daily occurrence?

    • You will likely conflict over washing dishes, cleaning the bathroom, and groceries/food. Do you have any idea how they handle themselves on these things?

    • Would you be okay spending time with someone who matters to you while this person is physically present? I’ve had roomies who interrupt 1-on-1 conversations to put in their thoughts, have horrible odor that permeated the apartment due to only showering once every couple days, and listen to their music loud enough that it interferes with other housemates media usage or family/friend visits.

    • Do they have a shitty significant other that you’re aware of? You’ll have an extremely high chance of also being exposed to that person’s crap also like extra bathroom mess, bottles of stuff in the shower, their clothing sitting around or ending up in your washing machine (assume you’re rooming in a house), cigarette butts if they smoke, sex objects, and so on.

    I’ve had my share of horrible roomies who stunk, left messes, had a live-in partner try to piggy back off of their share of rent, disrespected my family, and straight up opt’d not to pay rent thinking I’d be stuck paying for us both. Hopefully any of this helps someone avoid the same.

People Share Why They Got Fired And Some Of Them Are Hard To Sympathize With

Getting fired from a job is pretty serious…sometimes.  People took to Twitter to share their stories once the #GotFiredBecause hashtag emerged.  

While some were serious, many were able to joke about it since they were probably tweeting from the comfort of their new job’s work desk.  Let’s hope HR doesn’t decide to check in.

He might have a case here:

Some didn’t meet the prerequisites for the hashtag, but participated anyway:

This guy decided to expose a trade secret:

Going to have to side with management on this one:

That’s two for management:

Pokemon Master is a real job, isn’t it?

Uh oh:

I actually replaced the person that did this at my last job:

It’s all about who you know, after all:

A warning for everyone else today:

I thought everyone used hotels for this:

Only on Fridays:

You should’ve started it with, “No offense, but…”

Freaking leg prisons:

Three for Management:

That’s like, your opinion man:

To be fair, once you go past 2, 6 is the next logical point to stop:

This guy is officially the worst:

They were probably scrubs anyway:

Failed for not taking any probably:

Need to get those shades with the eyeballs painted on from the zoo:

It’s like Highlander, but with two weeks paid vacation:

¯_(ツ)_/¯

You were too good for that place anyway:

But ultimately:

Where you ever fired for an absurd reason?
