So I just went to the first outdoor farmer's market of the year. This town has (or had - hard to tell what things will be like from here on) the second-largest market in Wisconsin, after the insane one in Madison, and some Saturdays they've supposedly had 5,000 visitors, pretty good for a 2 1/2 block market with just over 100 vendors in a city with under 40k people - and a fairly economically depressed city at that. Sure was different this year, in part because COVID and in part because they opted to start up in early May rather than late, I guess to hopefully give a leg up to some struggling local farmers, vendors, shops. I got there towards the end of it so not many shoppers but it was a sorry sight in any case with no more than 25 vendors selling - not much. Beginning of May there isn't much local produce available - rhubard and scallions are just about it - and not having a garden space, the sellers of potted plants weren't getting my business, nor do I care much for the trinkets or soaps which always make up a good chunk of the sellers early in the season. But even the vendors of meat, dairy, honey and maple syrup were sparse and not selling much it seemed; not sure if this says anything definite about the economic outlook in this area but I expected a little bit more action. I almost left without buying anything but at last minute decided to get a jar of salsa - I'm usually a hummus on chips guy but what the hell, why not. In any case I hope there's a little more going on by next weekend, and that I manage to get there earlier.

Oh and I thought my local movie theater was gone for good, but driving by I saw a "re-opening" sign. Somebody with some money behind that I think - it was struggling hard even before the pandemic. But still good news I think, though I don't see myself going back there often even after I finally get vaccinated, unless they really improve the way they run the place.

That's a great label on your namesake beer. Don't think I've ever seen that, doubt it's distributed in the midwest. Then again with the vast quantity of brands available now who knows, and I no longer bother really searching for beer, just get what looks good. Which has mostly been this for the past month or two

The label is pretty cool... beer not half bad either though I'm not a beer connoisseur. It's from a puny brewery in RI, so you might not have it in the Midwest. I'll check for that tripel next time. The store I was just at has an aisle of craft brews that are organized by region and the Midwest was represented so it might be there.
I went in looking for Bluebird Bitter, but I think I'm out of luck. No US distribution anymore...

Ah, I didn't realize you weren't a serious beer snob :lol: . If you were you'd know that New Glarus, the maker of that tripel, is only available in Wisconsin. Despite growing steadily over most of its - 25? or so year existence they've kept to in-state distribution after a brief disastrous move into Illinois (IL has really weird distribution laws). They're something of a cult brewery though and they get a lot of people driving in to pick up stuff - go to their brewery any weekend (well, before COVID - don't know about now) and you'd see a hundred cars from ON, TX, TN, NY etc, as well as relatively local IL, IA and MN. It's really a strategy that has paid off and helped them keep their prices low - helps that the Twin Cities and Chicago are both so close to the WI border, so really they have a market of 15 million or so instead of just the 6 million in the state. And they're employee-owned and a pretty progressive company; I feel quite lucky and happy that my favorite brewery is one I can support in good conscience.

Gee I went on there. Nobody to talk to about beer lately, oh well. Dunno if I ever had Bluebird Bitter, perhaps once in an old (now gone for a few years) B&B and British restaurant in Vermont which had a ton of Brit beers. If you like the tripel style, I'm sure you're able to get Allagash in RI (heck, they've been distributing here for a couple of years) and they make probably the best widely available American example. All their stuff that I've had has been good, they're certainly the best (primarily) Beglian-style brewery in the country that I know.

No worries on the rambling. I love learning any new knowledge on practically any topic and listening to other's passions is a good part of that. ... yeah I ain't no expert on beer. I just know what suits my palate. We're getting into the time of year when I move more towards beer and away from red wine and whisky.
That's pretty cool that the New Glarus has kept staunchly local. I'd be with you in support if I lived in the region. If I ever do another cross country trip I'll be on the lookout for sure. And I'm also keeping my eyes open for the Bluebird if I ever wind up in the UK again.

BTW I think there's a beer thread somewhere here... cueing Lammetje.

One of my grandmother's and I ordered some of those ancestry DNA kits back in February. They took ageeeees to arrive because of COVID restrictions and stuff but we got them and sent them off about a month ago. Just checked their progress and they've finally arrived at the lab and one of them is currently in the 'DNA extraction' stage with mid-June being the estimated time for results. Excited to see the results (and to see the differences for 2 generations).

Anyone else done of these DNA kits before?

Yea it’s the same thing. It does allow you to match with people sharing your DNA through the site but I just want the ethnicity results.

The site I used has the same matching feature, which I could care less about, but the ancestry/ethnicity part was pretty cool. And they refine the data once or twice a year, which means the results have changed slightly over the last 10 years or so. I think it has to do with increased size of the testing pool, which enables them to make refinements over time. I can also look at health reports, genetic traits, general likelihood of developing certain diseases later in life, etc.

Yep, I've done the DNA kit thing, apparently I'm related to Alexander Hamilton, which would explain my mad hip hop skills. :P 85.7% British & Irish, 11.9% French & German, and 0.1% Coptic Egyptian. I have more neanderthal DNA than 80% of the people in their database, apparently.

My dad has the distinction of being barred from using the DNA site I used. He sent in his sample and it came back "not enough DNA". He was doing everything right, spit in a tube and make sure it isn't too close to mealtime (to avoid contamination), etc., and yet it didn't work. They asked him to try again so he did, and again it came back negative. He tried one more time and, once again, it came back negative. They explained to him that some people just don't shed enough DNA in their spit, there's nothing they can do about it, and please don't send them any more samples. Yeah, he's a freak. :)

I believe it! :P

The whole concept of modern humans intermingling with Neanderthals is relatively recent, only about 25 years as an idea. At my college we had a "Center for Biological Anthropology" and one of the people there was convinced that modern humans had interbred with Neanderthals just based on skeletal and skull features. Neanderthal men had prominent eyebrow ridges (a bulge in the skull that runs above your eyes, largely following the line of your eyebrows). Old modern humans (Cro-Magnon) have it, but less prominent than it is in modern humans. It's in fact one of the ways you can distinguish male and female skulls. A fellow student of mine had a very large eyebrow ridge and was asked if he would be willing to donate his skull to the Center once he passed. "You have a lot of Neanderthal in you!" He was a bit taken aback, it was kinda funny. Knowing that he wasn't the brightest tool in the shed and quite literal-minded only made it funnier!

By the way, for all those people testing their DNA, please be aware that the government may at some point in the future access your DNA without your permission. It's happened in the US recently. Maybe you're fine with that, but I hope it's just something people keep in mind.

:think:
The cost is way 2nd place for a reason I'm not going to consider it. I thought about saying something but didn't feel like writing yesterday. I also remember reading or hearing that besides governments accessing DNA archives (for criminal investigation?) some of these companies (was it 23 and Me?) were actually selling data to biomedical researchers. While composite data might be no big deal - like when some of us give rights to share telemetry and crash reports with software companies - I do wonder just how much they make of this stuff. But hey, people are more than happy to let Facebook and Google crawl up their arses so they can share shit "easily" online and collect likes and friends. Yeah, I'm sure it's probably in the pages of 5pt type, but ...

Nah, I see nothing I need from this transaction.

It wouldn't surprise me. I don't care much. They probably have access already to many peoples' DNA who didn't willingly submit to one of these tests. It's pretty easy to get a DNA sample from any random person hanging around...

I was a little reluctant about participating at first for the reason you mention, to be honest, but the kit was a gift from my partner and I didn't want to ruffle any feathers, so that was my primary consideration (rightly or wrongly). Having had blood tests over the years and surgery in the last year, though, there have already been plenty of opportunities for the government to have access to my DNA via the hospital. The sad truth is that if they want it, they may already have it . Hiding your DNA is a young person's game these days, if ever you need medical care of any significance (and many of us do eventually), you're exposed. I'm definitely not condoning this practice, mind you, just resigned to it (to a point), and your warning is an important one, I agree.

For people not looking up the gaming thread: The lighting of this is absolutely abysmal, but I'm getting quite a few compliments on this. I hate watching on my own work but I've watched this like 4 times in 3 days. I've never been so proud of something in my life :) I actually think the pacing and editing is better than in some films

I got my DNA results back but I'm not sure how confident I am in them since I got 0% Australian lol. A bit confused since one half of my family is English and the other is Macedonian/Australian.

Europe
North and West European: 61.4%
Iberian: 20.0%
Balkan: 8.2%
English: 8.2%
East European: 1.1%

Middle East
Middle Eastern: 1.1% :mw_confused:

My genetic groups:
- Greece and North Macedonia
- England
- USA (New York City, Philadelphia, Boston and Chicago) and Australia

My grandmother:

Europe
English: 56.6%
Irish, Scottish, and Welsh: 33.9%
Iberian: 8.1%
Finnish: 1.4%

I've been catching up with high school classmates and am having a fun time chatting with a few. Would it be a bad idea to message the far right one who I was closest with in high school and tell him how much of an idiot he is now? Haven't spoken to all of them in 13 years

A few days ago I started getting a twitch in my right index finger when I was at the computer for too long, it would start when I had my hand on my mouse. It wouldn’t last too long and it would stop if I took a break. Yesterday afternoon it started twitching and it didn’t stop the whole day. I woke up just now and first thing I felt was it twitching. It’s actually driving me crazy. I guess I have to go to the doctors about it but ugh I feel like my body is falling apart.

The most common answer you'll get is that you probably have a small deficiency of magnesium. Get some rest, it should be OK, I wouldn't go to the doctor for that

I’ve been taking extra magnesium for weeks because of other muscle spasms I’ve been having so idk. Ive had RSI since 2016 so I’m assuming it’s related to that. I’ve got a wrist brace on and it seems to have calmed the twitch for now.

It depends. What do you hope to gain from doing so? Certainly, you won't convince anyone to change their ideas doing it that way. It's possible you could also alienate this broader group of classmates. On the other hand, maybe telling someone off online brings you enough pleasure to make it all worthwhile. It depends.
