1. With the changes to MTurk's payment systems I'm recommending people take a moment to consider securing their on-site banking information from userscripts. TVJS has already been updated to explicitly prevent it from accessing sensitive pages, but workers should strongly consider permanently blacklisting scripts from running on pages containing banking information.

    [Guide] Globally Blacklisting Scripts From Running on MTurk's Bank Account Management Pages will show you how.

    Hee-hee! Got egg on my face! A big thanks to @ChrisTurk on this otherwise pretty awful day! :)
    You can't fool me!
    I can clearly see the 'mouth' saying "Give me my badge".
    But I can also clearly see it saying 4 more syllables after that,
    which I'll politely call a 'term of endearment'. :emoji_joy:

    Saw this recipe for making a pizza in a cast iron skillet and thought, sure that looks good. They sliced up some fennel and garlic really thin and said to use a mandolin and I have one of those, so all good so far. Turns out I shouldn't operate one of those after a couple beers. Worst part is that I was out of bandaids and had to tape a napkin to my finger to drive myself to walgreens.

    Anyways, one sacrificial fingertip later and my pizza came out great.

    I found it on the bottom of the mandolin. That was my first thought too because I was about to start over.

    I was a really clean slice. Went right through the skin. I'm just lucky that it was on the thinnest setting.

    When I worked with my sister at Quizno's, I cut the pads of both pointer fingers off on the meat slicer about six months apart. Had to shut the whole store down for hours just so we could sanitize the whole area. Purchased two new meat slicers because my sister was very particular (can't blame her). :emoji_joy: Good thing she owned the place, I'd have been out of a job.

    Every time I get on the mandolin I look at the hand guard and say to myself, 'nah'. I'll probably do it again too. Learning from mistakes is unmanly.

    Hey! Where's my GF @WildFlower ?
    I was thinking earlier that she might be one of the few people who'd understand that a David Bowie 'pronunciation' argument could have at least three alternatives for those of us who're familiar with driving north on route 450 from the Maryland 'Beltway'.
    Anyway, here's a Boomer love song for her to let her know she's missed! :ba:
