The agricultural revolution allowed us to free our time to explore other tasks and here we are wasting our free time to marvel over someone else wasting way more free time.

This man found a little bunny and raised it himself! by rohit_x in oddlysatisfying

[–]fibonacci_veritas 18 points19 points  (0 children)

PSA bunnies do not need to be rescued. They are left alone for long periods by their mothers. DO NOT REMOVE BUNNIES.

This guy messed with nature. He did not do the bunny a solid.

That’s some nice caulk by cocksy101 in oddlysatisfying

Does she fill the tub full of water before she does it and then let it sit overnight?

It needs 24 hours to cure and the tub needs to be full or the flexing of people in the tub will cause the seal to break.

I'm a lazy person myself but not even I would call walking up 30 wooden stairs a "pandemic project".

Sauce

INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1/2 medium onion, finely chopped

1 small carrot or 1/2 large carrot, finely chopped

1 small stalk of celery, including the green tops, finely chopped

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon dried basil or 2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil

1 28 oz. can whole tomatoes, including the juice, or 1 3/4 pound of fresh tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped

1 teaspoon tomato paste

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

METHOD

1 Gently cook the onion, carrot, celery, and parsley: Heat olive oil in a large wide skillet on medium heat. Add the chopped onion, carrot, celery and parsley. Stir to coat.

Reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are softened and cooked through.

2 Add garlic: Remove cover and add the minced garlic. Increase the heat to medium high. Cook for garlic for 30 seconds.

3 Add tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, salt, pepper, then simmer: Add the tomatoes, including the juice and shredding them with your fingers if you are using canned whole tomatoes. Add the tomato paste and the basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Bring to a low simmer, reduce the heat to low and cook, uncovered until thickened, about 15 minutes.

Optional, purée for smooth sauce: If you want you can push the sauce through a food mill, or purée it in a blender or with an immersion blender, to give it a smooth consistency.

Very satisfying wall repair by idontreallylikecandy in oddlysatisfying

[–]OrganicDepartment 8 points9 points  (0 children)

American here. We mainly build our walls out of wooden studs and gypsum drywall with layers of fiberglass insulation inbetween. This gypsum drywall has a paper backer on it which is what you see in the video. There's nothing wrong with stone walls but they are by far much more expensive and take much more time to construct than stud and drywall buildings. The reasoning for this arose in the 1950s. After the second world war the US saw an enormous economic boom. This coupled with essentially a generation of men coming home from the war and having kids meant that there was an enormous demand for housing in the late 40s and throughout the 50s. Simply put people didn't have the money and didn't want to take the time to put up the very heavy and expensive stone structures like in Europe. This is actually also the reason behind the birth of the suburb. Unlike Europe the vast majority of homes and other buildings in the states have been erected in the last 100 years. Edit: Hey, thanks for the gold!

Any other wax lovers out there? by GameMasterChris in oddlysatisfying

[–]Captain_Sacktap 683 points684 points  (0 children)

I think this will become my exclusive means of communicating with my neighborhood’s HOA. I’ll dictate my words to a monk, who will carefully write them down onto a scroll that shall be sealed with a piece of wax bearing my sigil. I’ll then hire a guy on a horse to deliver it to the HOA meeting on my behalf and read it before the board in an official manner like “Hear ye, hear ye! Let it be known to this band of nitpicking knaves that Captain_Sacktap doth declare that he SHALL change the landscaping in front of his abode and anyone opposed may feast uponst a bag of dicks.”
