I may be lost here, but wasn't a message sent on an episode where they said it would take 25 years or some crazy amount of time for Starfleet to receive the message?

That was pretty much all of Voyager, right?

Shouldn't Coca Cola be labelled "Original Taste since 1985?"

No doubt. I worked in a small town grocery store in high school when the New Coke came out. The store owners hated it and took every case of original Coke home to their house. They had some of us help load all of it into the back of their El Camino.

I can't remember crap that I did yesterday , yet, I remember weird sh*t like that.

I was the one who liked New Coke, and the stealth return as Coke II, then it was gone. Where did I put my car keys?

I was one of the dozens that liked Crystal Pepsi

New Coke was trash tier, but Crystal Pepsi was awesome. It was just a lighter, less bitey Pepsi.

Is this where I confess to enjoying Zima?

Broke: Crystal Pepsi

Bespoke: Crystal Gravy

Trashcans should be built like our intestines. Our intestines are full of poop but we don't smell like poop. If this same concept was applied to trashcans they wouldn't stink. Who do I talk to sell this idea? Please don't try to steal my idea.

I will call it INTRASHSTINES CANS!

I hate to ruin a nice portmanteau, but the Diaper Genie (tm) is basically that, but marketed towards parents of newborns.

Speak for yourself.

Diaper Genie still smells somewhat. And soooo much plastic! You have to dispose of all the diapers in chained wombat poo form. Which... Yeah. About as fun as it sounds.

I think that you're proposing trash cans that fart?

Aren't those compost bins?

And "litter lockers" for cat owners.

Me too, and Pepsi Blue.

I miss Surge.

I'm starting to think we need a thread on "Answers You Want Questioned".

Be the change you want to see!

Huh, I thought those were giant Pringles cans... I've been misinformed.

Okay, this is driving me crazy today. Can anyone remember this SNL sketch... I think it was from the 90s? IIRC it had an artist explaining a painting and then he said "and now the BLACK ANTS" and put black dots all over the thing.

I want to say it was a Sprockets episode, but I can't find it.

Coca Cola with Coffee was amazing to my tastebuds. Still really bitter about that.

Okay, as a question:

Why the heck do people like brown, acidic, caffeinated, sugared, fizzy water and wtf does that have to do with Santa Claus?

Spoiler:

I liked Grape Nehi, A&W root beer, and Vernor's ginger ale as a kid, so...I guess I'm not supposed to make fun of liking colas. Which I do not like. Coca cola's pantothenic acid is great for cleaning mineral deposits in your toilet, or for cleaning your car battery, so...still useful, but still nothing the f*ck to do with Santa.

Questions you want some responses to be hot takes of your question? Maybe not.

Coke's popularized the modern image of Santa Claus through their marketing because they wanted to sell more drinks in wintertime.

One might therefore fairly grant Coca-Cola some credit for cementing the modern image of Santa Claus in the public consciousness, as in an era before the advent of television, before color motion pictures became common, and before the widespread use of color in newspapers, Coca-Cola's magazine advertisements, billboards, and point-of-sale store displays were for many Americans their primary exposure to the modern Santa Claus image.

Well, that's a sobering, cogent response to my obnoxiousness. Thanks there Leaping.

Have you ever sat down on a toilet and accidentally teabagged liquid waste drips on the rim of the toilet bowl?

On my iPhone, I have set Bing as my search engine for Safari. Today Bing started returning results formatted for desktop. It does not do this in Chrome or Edge. Having no luck finding how to fix this. Help?

I have cleared cookies, and it is formatted for desktop even if I toggle to desktop site then mobile site using the Aa menu.

EDIT: It looks like it is actually returning the mobile site, because when I set the text zoom to 250% it looks normal. I guess that's a workaround I can live with. iOS Safari remembers text zoom size per website.

Try DuckDuckGo instead. It actually uses Bing on the backend but is way simpler and cleaner.
