2022.01.27 23:30 essenceofreddit I have too much Thomas in my life and am going mad
I have been exposed to entirely too much Thomas the Tank Engine. There are toys, books, model tracks, a legacy stop motion TV show, and a new cartoon animated (as all cartoons are these days) in Flash, All Engines Go.
For those of you who are blessed to not know this until reading this particular post, the Thomas universe was conceived of by one Reverend William Awdry. Apart from spelling his last name wrong, the Reverend had a very special, salient quirk: he absolutely hated diesel engines. This absolutely comes across in his work: the diesels live segregated lives from the "Steamies," and, like any perpetual underclass, often unsuccessfully plot the overthrow of current society. Of course, all their plots are foiled by the steam-powered Thomas and Friends, and usually end with one or more diesel engines plunging into a muddy river or some such fate. As a current ruling class in Sodor, steam engines are heavily invested in the maintenance of the status quo.
Awdry's bizarre hatred of Diesels is actually carried forth into the current media landscape of All Engines Go, which was actually developed with advice from the United Nations (the United Nations apparently advised them on the inclusion of a music loving steam engine, Nia, who is canonically from Kenya). In All Engines Go, there are fewer explicit references to the race war perpetually brewing on the island of Sodor (the engines are apparently allowed to cohabitate), and yet the superiority of the steam engine carries forth. For instance, Diesel, the sole representative of the diesel race, whom the good Reverend could not even bother to grant an actual name, is the primary antagonist. Unlike Thomas, Diesel has no friends, only temporarily allied fellow outcasts. Often in competition with Thomas, he regularly seeks to win via underhanded methods, such as switching the track behind him during races. He is often seen belching thick clouds of black smoke. This of course contrasts with the steam engines, which merely produce quickly-dissipating white steam, which they ironically blow from their smokestacks. The actual thick, black, carcinogenic coal smoke which issues from the smokestacks of real life trains is nowhere to be seen. Ironically enough, this disconnect leads to another curious deletion in the Thomas universe: many of the steam engines, most notably Thomas himself, don't even have pistons connecting their boilers to their wheels. The pistons of a steam locomotive are the features from which steam actually emanates, as a byproduct of reciprocation. How Thomas is able to propel himself remains a mystery to me.
I should note that there is actually a third category of trains: the battery-powered electric trains. These are represented in All Engines Go by Kana, the only recognizably non-white character other than Nia. She is, of course, an Asian-looking bullet train. In an echo of the Luddistic media stories which even today surround electric cars, Kana suffers from extreme range anxiety which is a feature of several episodes. She often runs out of battery and has to be towed by a steam engine. No steam engine is ever shown running out of either coal or water. As a bullet train, Kana is the fastest train on Sodor, although she remains inexplicably unable to navigate corners well.
I have no idea why I decided to ramble about this horrid television program or its even more regressive source material, but every day I trip over a Thomas train, read my son his requested Thomas story, and see All Engines Go playing on the living room TV. My cup overfloweth, I guess into this post.

2022.01.27 23:30 SailorFae Amano shrimp disappeared?
Hi all, I’m still fairly new at proper tank ownership. I have a planted 9 gallon fluval flex with one male betta, one mystery snail, one trapdoor snail, and just recently introduced two Amano shrimp at a local aquarium store’s suggestion to help fight algae growth.
The first day they were in the tank both shrimp were super lively and I could see them swimming, crawling, climbing etc. It was super interesting and it was awesome to see them already eating the algae!
However that was Sunday and it is now Thursday, and I have not seen either Amano shrimp since that first afternoon. While I was watching them I saw my betta definitely notice them, but wasn’t acting very aggressive. They’re also practically the same size as him so I feel that I should be able to find them?
Is it likely the betta killed them? Would the snails have eaten them so thoroughly I wouldn’t find any remains? I had ghost shrimp in the tank for a brief period before they died out (turns out they were feeders) and I did see their remains before and after the snails disposed of them. I checked the filter compartments in the back to make sure the Amano’s hadn’t gotten stuck. It doesn’t seem like any more algae has disappeared either. I was really hopeful for these guys so it’s pretty upsetting thinking I just sentenced them to death by betta.
Tips of what other creature I could try and introduce would be appreciated. I want the tank to be as much of a self contained ecosystem as possible but since it’s 9 gallons I know my options are limited.

2022.01.27 23:30 onawhatwhat Razer Strider XXL or HyperX Fury S Pro (durability?)
Hi /MousepadReview, my credit card rewards center just stocked the Razer Strider XXL and the HyperX Fury S Pro. Can you help me decide which is the longevity choice here?
I play Valorant casually. The reason why I'm so fixated on longevity is because I bought my current mousepad, the Corsair MM200, back in 2017 and it is still going strong. Hoping I can get another mousepad that will last me like this when I build my second desk. I guess my main concern is folks talking about how the Strider is rough on the skin. Let me know if I may be overlooking some things. Thanks!

2022.01.27 23:30 someStudentDeveloper How can I add more flavor to my chicken cutlets?
I like to make chicken cutlets for my niece and nephew. I follow the basic recipe: slice the chicken breast lengthwise, pound it, put salt and pepper on it and then do the 'all purpose flour --> egg wash --> panko bread crumbs' trio. Shallow fry it using a neutral oil and finish it off a little salt at the end.
My question: how can I improve the flavors in this recipe? What are some good spices I can use? And at what should I add them? Thanks!

2022.01.27 23:30 Creative-Movie-1231 House Siding Profiles - Traditional or Triple 3?
There was a huge hail where I live and my vinyl house siding got destroyed. My insurance is covering for the replacement. We have now decided on the color and we have to decide on available profiles which are Double 4.5 Traditional, Double 4.5 Designer, and Triple 3.
I'm not sure what to go with, is there any pro/con to any of this or is this strictly aesthetic?

2022.01.27 23:30 sly_cheshire AMC Theaters mobile app
Who uses this? i have never had a problem with it and left a glowing review on the App Store but noticed there are several bad/complainy reviews. I’d like to blame it on user error but am curious…have any apes had problems with the app and how? I encourage everyone to leave a review in whatever mobile app store you use. i never leave reviews but i love AMC so much and the app works so well for me i wanted to leave a positive review. Don’t let shills overrun the app store too! We need apes to support AMC in every way possible, so leave a review in your mobile app store!
