Walmart’s beauty box is back with a special edition Halloween box. Two different options that have almost all the same items in them except for one has an option of a lipstick or an eyeliner. $9.98 for several full items shipped to you.
I think there’s a $100 off the Amazon Recast TV device (Tivo-like OTA DVR). There’s also a separate topic for Prime Day. The deals seem to be “spend $10 now at our less successful/well-known side gigs, get $10 off during Prime Day”.
My mom planted a crop of tabasco peppers on the farm a few years ago. I have no idea what funky thing affected them, but something in the soil, the sun, the fertilizer she used… I dunno. Tabasco peppers are normally pretty benign, but that season her crop like to melt my teeth out of my mouth! The habaneros and pot primos weren’t nearly as hot as that one crop of tabasco peppers.
@ruouttaurmind@CaptAmehrican this is the thing I said I wouldn’t eat. I ate a bag of their haunted ghost pepper chips and it was delightful in its excessive spiciness. But reviews of previous one chip challenges by people who love extremely hot things mentioned things like miserable, stomach pain, and never again. That and $7 made me pass.
FYI they are at Circle K stores for the same price if you need that hit faster.
When my wife and I were dating she brought me some jalapeno peppers her mom had grown that had the same freak thing happen to them. I grilled some up with fajitas and they were face meltingly hot. The green ones were way hot, and the red ones inedible to me. I asked her about them and she said “yeah, they’re kinda hot. I was eating them raw with a little piece of cheese.” That blew my mind. Now, though, she says many things are way too hot.
@CaptAmehrican@djslack@ruouttaurmind My daughter drinks jalapeno pepper juice like it is water. She dumps on cayenne pepper powder on stuff like it is sugar on cereal. OMG I have no idea how she can eat stuff that hot. She’d probably love red ones - me I’d make sure my food is cooked separately.
Additional 10% discount if you spend $300 or more on office furniture and/or home decor (you can mix and match between categories). Use discount code HDOFFICE10 at checkout. I put three of these in my cart and my total including tax was about $366.
Generous 36-inch x 72-inch tabletop, height adjustable from 24 inches to 36 inches. Steel legs and base, 1.25-inch thick high pressure laminate table surface.
I’m feeling like the size is just about perfect for crafty stuff, gift wrapping, a Silhouette Cameo or Cricut workstation and such. If it’s sturdy enough it might even be suitable as a garage workbench, or converted to a router table or woodworking bench.
You can use the offer multiple times, so if your order exceeds $200 try breaking it up into two orders to double dip the discount. If necessary, it’s probably worth adding some filler item or two from the list to round out two $100+ orders. It’s like getting free tools then, innit? I love me some free tools!

I finally get to replace that Dewalt Atomic sub-compact recip saw I got a few months ago. Great saw, amazingly lightweight and compact, but not really suitable for serious jobs due to the short stroke length (TWSS). Good for pruning trees or trimming up some PVC, not great for extended use tasks involving many cuts. So… now I have a better option for my use on the way!
@RiotDemon I received mine yesterday afternoon. It’s an absolute beast compared to the Dewalt Atomic sub-compact saw. It cuts better than the 18v Dewalt full-size saw, nearly on par with my old Bosch corded saw. But it’s really, really loud and vibrates like crazy at high speed. For the price I am pretty sure I’ll be satisfied with this purchase.
Amazon had Modernist Cuisine at Home (the $140 home game version of the $500 Modernist Cuisine multivolume epic, dumbed down so you don’t need expensive lab equipment to reproduce the techniques) on a lightning deal today for $76.99. Previous Amazon low price was $84.
I went back tonight because I still had a tab open. The book was back to $99.99 but now had a $33.33 coupon to apply. The $66.66 price is less than even used copies sell for. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/0982761015
