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.

    Ugh I just got ma'am'd by a youth at the gas station, and now you come here to add insult to injury
    One of you whippersnappers find me a gif of that old man on Rocko's Modern Life saying youth is wasted on the young, I'm too old to get the googles to work apparently

    Don't feel bad. RJ has been taught to say ma'am or sir to any employee at any establishment he goes to, and to any adult otherwise. But...I get it. It makes me feel old too :emoji_joy: But what I hate worse is someone younger than me calling me "hun". :emoji_expressionless:

    I second @Tracy Wethington on the flaxseed oil. I'm also personally a fan of shortening and higher temp seasoning.

    I find this a solid helper. I had to restore a couple old pans I found in a basement and found the stuff on this thread was super helpful: https://www.reddit.com/r/castiron/comments/c4ntam/how_to_strip_and_restore_cast_iron_faq_post/
