  1. Where to buy green papaya

    the 18€ Papayas were small as well  
  2. Where to buy green papaya

    The Asian market near me has green papaya for 18€ / piece.  Has anyone seen this at a more reasonable price?

    I get hat hair worse than most, so if I put a hat on it generally stays on until I get home.

    I would really like this new beta to become available in the EU, because autopilot is just a steaming pile of crap these days. Autopilot got confused I guess, and simply turned itself off for no apparent reason last night on the Autobahn auto highbeams re-activate after engaging autopilot and remain on after disengaging.  Sorry for the blindness, fellow motorists. emergency lane correction tried to move me into another car last night countless warnings for getting too close to the edge of the road on a rural road with no center line.
  5. What are you cooking today?

    Pad Thai Pizza   Sauce: 30 ml oil 1/2 cup chopped shallots 6 cloves minced garlic 70g palm sugar (or brown sugar) 1/4 cup fish sauce 1/2 cup tamarind paste (the runny kind) 1/3 cup preserved radish (not critical but it's nice) 1 Tbsp dried shrimp (I make them unrecognizable with a mortar and pestle.  chilies to taste (I smash these up along with the shrimp)   Sautee the shallots and garlic in the oil until browned.  Dump in the sugar and let melt then caramelize for a short while.  Remove from heat and carefully add the liquids.  Once the violent boiling ends, add the shrimp and radish.  Continue to heat on medium until the sauce thickens up a bit.  Do not forget to taste.  If it's not tart enough add some lime juice. Too tart?  Add some water.    1 package of boneless Chicken (white or dark meat; your call): Marinate in fish sauce, honey, water, sesame oil for a few hours then sautee until browned up nicely. Chop up into smallish chunks.   1 package of rolled-up pizza dough.  Get one that utilizes the entire area of your oven's cooking sheet.  For me this is the XXL-variety. Unroll and slather on the sauce, distribute the chicken evenly.    1 package of Pizzakäse or better yet, shred your own.    Bake according to the dough package instructions   Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro and chopped peanuts   Next time I plan to try adding fried scrambled egg, green onion and/or garlic chives to the mix.  Probably sautee the garlic/onion with the chicken, and make the egg separately.

      This is not my experience. Autopilot functions invariably get reduced in heavy rain because a side camera gets obscured.

    last I heard they are still only producing Performance Model Y in Germany.  Delivery range varies depending on which variant you choose.

    I had to get my windshield replaced, and the shop did not correctly reconnect all the autopilot cameras.  While the problem was being diagnosed and argued about between the glass shop and Tesla (with me as a proxy -- which was super annoying), I drove 4 hours to Schwarzwald and back.  NOT having autopilot, traffic-aware cruise control, speed limit display, safety features (like the automatic braking assistant) was really really kind of a pain in the ass.   So my point is, call it whatever the F you want.  When you don't have it you really notice its absence.   Carry on bickering, please.

    The tweet was sarcastic.  The event held by AXA was meant to be serious, but it was a big fail... except that it got press and people are talking about it.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      There will be a slight increase in the overall electricity demand due to EV adoption.  Remember: oil doesn't get turned into gasoline or diesel without substantial energy inputs beyond the oil itself.  This energy will simply be redirected into the grid.    The issue of this slight increase in demand is already being solved by capitalism.  Plus it's not like everyone on the planet takes delivery of an EV and scraps their ICE-vehicle tomorrow.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯    The biggest actual charging issue with EV adoption is the last-mile infrastructure, but SWM for example is already building out capacity.  Again, capitalism to the rescue, lol.

    So proud of you, Scotland.     
  12.   As more and more EVs are on the roads, this is becoming more and more of an issue.  Charging stations, just like gas pumps, can be blocked by anyone and anything.  Imagine the hissy fits if EVs blocked all the pumps at a gas station.    My hope is that as EV adoption goes up, people will start seeing that it's an issue.  Unfortunately, it will only be because it suddenly affects them.      2 charge points, 1 car   I had to ask the cop (not in the picture) to move his van as he had been blocking 2 charge points.  My car is the blue Model 3.
