2023.05.30 22:44 Legal-Dealer9588 I (21M) am interested in my coworker (23F)
I work for a retail store and I’ve seen a girl that works in another department that I found pretty. I saw her once inside the store and we had a 5-second stare-down then we smiled and that was that. A few days later I saw her in the parking lot, we had the same stare-down but I ended up say hi and smiling and she did the same (I kinda saw her staring at me first but she didn’t break it when I noticed). That same day I saw her near the pizza stand where I was talking with one of my friends, she came out of nowhere and asked me if I liked her pizza. I panic a lot when Im in the heat of the moment so I just said Im not sure Im about to try it. I know, Stupid.
A few weeks later I was working inside the freezer and she needed stuff from inside, but she couldn’t get it because I was using the Pallet Jack (basically a thing to move pallets around. I brought her stuff where she needed them and left for lunch. When I came back she was done moving her stuff from the pallet into the float (which is a big cart for retail workers to put boxes on) I asked her if she needed help and she said until 2 seconds later she she said she may need help. (Nobody really helps other departments because every department have their own managers, I was just being generous there). I helped her and then went on to do my thing. 20 minutes later I needed the float she was using so I went to her and asked her for it and she said I can take it. However, she followed that by saying “You can have all the floats” in a flirty way. Later on that day I saw her at the door when I was leaving and she asked me if I was leaving and it was still early. I told her I came at 4 and she said get some sleep.
A day later, I saw her again, at the door, this time she saw me carrying a bag with cauliflower and eggplant in it, she asked what it was for and I told her Im from the middle east so Im making middle eastern food, she said she loved the middle east (or middle Eastern I can’t remember ffs) and that was that.
Last Sunday I went on a 15-minute break and I didnt realize she saw me from the window behind me until later on I saw her outside when she was leaving. She approached and asked why Im still outside and if I needed a ride (nobody in my life ever asked me that) i said I don’t leave just yet and I had a little bit left.
Yesterday, nothing major happened I helped her like last time and she did the same but when I was leaving she didn’t say bye or anything even though she saw me.
Today, I found out she wants to transfer to another store in 3-4 months.
My friends think I should ask her out for coffee or something but Im unsure.
Ps; the reason I put (23F?) is because Idk her exact age but I know for sure she’s older than 20. She just looks 23 in my eyes lol.
TLDR: I work at a retail store and I had a few encounters with a girl from another department. We exchanged smiles and greetings, had a conversation about pizza, helped each other with work tasks, and had a brief interaction outside the store. However, the girl mentioned she plans to transfer to another store in a few months.

2023.05.30 22:19 HomeInTheMeadow Effects of over-fermentation on sourdough?
What does over-fermentation do to sourdough, or any bread dough?
I'm asking because of an ongoing problem I'm having with my sourdough pizza dough. After kneading the dough seems good - soft and elastic. I follow a recipe that instructs to leave it to proof for 16-18 hours (it's 380g flou250 wate30 starter). The dough usually triples in size - it gets very big and airy. when I make the pizzas it breaks easily and has lost a lot of elasticity. it also feels clammy and sticky. The finished pizza is not good - hard and kind of crunchy. The crusts don't puff up in a satisfying way. I'm thinking it might be over-fermenting? Does this ruin dough?
(I make sourdough bread, baguettes, and other types of bread with success. it's only the pizza that's goes wrong and I can't work it out.)
Here is the recipe I follow: https://www.francomanca.co.uk/stories/sourdough-recipe/

2023.05.30 21:15 Shrek_2_Soundtrack France/Italy GF Trip Summary
This sub was a great resource for preparing for my big Euro trip, so I wanted to drop this post as a round up for great gluten free places I visited! PARIS Patisseries:
Copains - fully GF bakery, amazing selection here and super friendly staff, everything I had here was delicious (and I tried way too much)
NoGlu - while my least favorite of the bakeries, NoGlu offers lunch as well, so getting a traditional ham and emmental sandwich on their baguette was a great treat. As far as their straight up baked goods though, they were noticeably GF as compared to others in town
Le Pont Traverse - this little coffee shop is operated by NoGlu and serves baked goods from their bakery. It was super close to my hotel, so we started pretty much every day here. The smoked salmon bagel was especially good
Chambelland - while it was a close race with Copains, this was my favorite of the bakeries. I legitimately couldn't tell their eclair was gluten free Dinners:
Brasserie Les Deux Palais - this is probably the only really "tourist trap" place we went, but we were hoping to walk along the Seine around sunset one night, and this brasserie by Sainte Chapelle was just the right location. It's definitely overpriced, but if you're looking for the traditional tourist brasserie experience while gluten free, this is a reliable stop
Le P'Tit Troquet - traditional French cooking, small restaurant with an even smaller menu, but gf adjustments available for most menu items and friendly about making the changes needed
Le Saotico - this little bistro was packed with locals when we arrived, which is always a good sign. The owners are a couple and the wife has Celiac, so she is quick to assure you that you are in good hands. They make some amazing duck and had great GF dessert options
Boutary - shout out u/MagneticPerry
for this recommendation because this was THE BEST MEAL of our whole trip. A caviar-centric tasting menu, tailored around my GF request, with some of the most delightful waitstaff I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. A true 10 out of 10 experience NICE
Taverne Messena - this place was a godsend when we arrived to Nice at 11pm one night. They stay open until 1 am and have a special menu labelled with allergens
Pop-O-Thyme - we ate lunch twice at this little crepe spot, traditional GF buckwheat crepes can be made with almost any of their fillings, and the GF crepes are made in a separate area than the others
La Rotonde - this is the mid-budget option for dining at the historic Le Negresco resort in Nice, with the Prix Fixe menu coming in around 65 euros a person. Your GF options are a little limited on the prix fixe menu, but everything I had was delicious, and they brought out warm GF rolls that were amazing. Dinner here also gets you access to the historic hotel, which is normally reserved for guests, so make sure to check out the incredible bar as well
GiGi Tavola - Someone told us the GF pizza at GiGi Tavola rivaled any GF pizza in Italy, which I was very skeptical of, but after having spent a week in Italy I have to agree. This is the best GF crust I have ever had. Make sure to make a reservation here, and if you're a craft cocktail person, ask about the speakeasy when you pay the check At this point in my trip, we crossed over into Italy, and here I am happy to confirm everything you've heard about being gluten free in Italy is 100% true. People are super friendly and super knowledgable, almost every restaurant has their allergen info handy, and the AIC (Italian Celiac Association) awards a seal of approval to restaurants that can the facilities and know-how to assure food safety for people with Celiac. GENOA
I Tre Merli - we had a stopover night in Genoa and wanted some seafood. I Tre Merli is AIC certified and sits out on the port, so we figured it was a good pick. All the seafood was fresh and delicious, and they offer several gluten free pasta options to accompany any of their sauces. I had some incredible GF seafood gnocchi here
McDonalds - yep, I tried the Italian GF burger. It is exactly what you expect: a frozen double cheeseburger that's been microwaved to order and served to you still sealed in plastic. But it's safe, convenient, and a Scharr bun is gonna be delicious no matter what. It makes me so mad no one in the States can offer something that is this simultaneously convenient and safe. FLORENCE
Hostaria Il Desco - another AIC certified spot, this one offering more upscale pastas. We got truffle bruschetta on GF bread and chinghiale pasta (wild boar, a local delicacy). This place was a healthy mix of locals and tourists, which for Florence is saying a lot, as it was flooded with American college kids the whole time we were there
Sgrano - a very popular lunch spot in Florence serves giant sandwiches prepared inside an entire loaf of focaccia, and Sgrano is directly across the street offering a GF version. These sandwiches are gigantic and filled with incredible Italian meats and cheeses. I highly recommend you split a sandwich, I had one to myself at lunch and couldn't eat for the rest of the day
Cafe Del Teatro Niccolini - this cafe offers several different gluten free croissants, store and prepared separately in the back, and is a convenient grab-and-go espresso and a pastry spot
Grom - no matter where you go in Italy you'll probably find Grom gelato. They started as a dedicated GF gelateria and got big enough to be bought out by Unilever, so they are all over the place now. While many gelaterias in Italy are knowledgable enough to be very safe about scooping your GF order, it's nice to have dedicated GF flavors and cones at places like Grom ROME
Taliani Pastries Cafe - I had read this place wasn't fully GF before going, so I was expecting a limited GF selection, but they actually have much more GF options than non-GF. The pastries were huge and delicious and reasonably priced, the staff even threw in some little tarts for free since they were close to closing.
Pizza in Trevi - at just a few steps away from the Trevi fountain, this place is filled with tourists, but it's AIC certified and has a unique buckwheat GF pizza crust that gives it a great flavor. Despite the crowds rushing in and out, they give gluten free diners a separate placemat and bring all the gf food out on separate dishes to insure safety
Mercato Hostaria - after sitting down here and opening the menu I realized this must be the more upscale sister restaurant to Pizza in Trevi, although the surroundings here are completely different. Instead of the cramped crowds of Trevi, this restaurants sits out on a quiet piazza, but they follow the same AIC safety protocols. All their pasta sauces can be served on fresh in-house GF pasta, and everything we had here was delicious
Mama Eat Lab - there are several Mama Eat locations around Rome offering GF comfort foods (think a lot of breaded and deep-fried options), but Mama Eat Lab in Vatican City is a smaller, dedicated GF location. The pizza here was probably the least impressive of my trip, but the pasta is delicious, and they make these like breaded, deep-fried mashed potato logs that are incredible
I hope some of this was helpful for any of you planning travel, and for anyone out there with travel-anxiety due to our dietary needs, I just want to assure you that France and especially Italy are excellent places to be! I felt more safe there than many of the places I travel in the US.

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft and Webb Telescope Discovers. NASA’s Cassini spacecraft
shared the wonders of Saturn
Saturn's ring system. The Moon referred to here is likely Saturn's moon Enceladus, which has been observed to have geysers or plumes erupting from its surface. These plumes consist of water vapor, ice particles, and other volatile compounds.
Enceladus' plumes primarily interact with its own environment. The plumes originate from subsurface liquid water oceans that exist beneath the moon's icy crust. When the plumes are ejected into space, they form a diffuse cloud around Enceladus. This cloud affects the moon's immediate vicinity and has been studied extensively by the Cassini spacecraft, which orbited Saturn
Saturn's rings are composed of countless icy particles ranging in size from micrometers to meters. The rings orbit Saturn independently of its moons. While the plumes from Enceladus might be in proximity to Saturn's rings, there is no substantial evidence to suggest a direct interaction between the two. NASA's James Webb Space Telescope
has provided new insights into the interaction between the plumes of Saturn's moon Enceladus and the planet's ring system. Enceladus
, a small icy moon, harbors a global ocean beneath its icy crust. Geysers erupt from the moon's surface, spewing jets of water vapor, ice particles, and organic chemicals. Webb's observations have revealed a massive water vapor plume extending over 6,000 miles, more than 20 times the size of the moon itself. The telescope's sensitivity has allowed scientists to observe how this plume feeds the water supply for Saturn and its rings. Webb's unique vantage point from the Sun-Earth Lagrange Point 2, one million miles from Earth, has provided a new perspective on the interaction between the plumes and the Saturnian system. The observations demonstrate that about 30% of the water remains within a torus, co-located with Saturn's outermost and widest ring, while the remaining 70% escapes to supply water to the rest of the Saturnian system. Webb's ongoing observations of Enceladus will continue to deepen our understanding of this intriguing moon and inform future missions to explore its subsurface ocean and icy crust. Please note
It's important to note that scientific knowledge is constantly advancing, and new discoveries can be made beyond actally knowledge cutoff. So, it's always worth checking for the latest research and updates from reliable sources to stay informed about any developments in our understanding of celestial bodies.
2023.05.30 20:11 Dogwood_Eng Wiring Guru help and experience needed. Standalone wiring a Ruckus engine.
Been doing some reading on here and want to say thanks for all the info you've compiled. I have a bit of a project I am working through and was hoping someone with more Ruckus experience might be able to shed some light for me.
I am attempting to run a 2003 Ruckus engine with minimal wiring in a swap application. It will all be fitted to a 2000 Honda Elite frame. I'm no stranger to engine swaps or scooters (mostly honda 2 strokes) but have never modified a ruckus with it's "complicated electronics". Judging by the Throttle Position Sensor, ECT sensor and ECU it probably has real ignition timing strategy unlike most fixed scooter CDI's
I have listed some things below that I think need sorted to get it running without a ECU. If you see any problems feel free to let me know.
Fuel system: Traditional carb with manual choke and gravity feed fuel system. I have a few Polini CP and Mikuni carbs I could jet properly, and the Elite chassis it's all going in has a gravity feed fuel system in place already.
Ignition system: Something like the Rolling Wrench EVI "standalone" ignition system. This seems to need +/- 12v, kill switch signal and connection to the service connector (RPM) to make it work. That said it is made to work in conjunction with a stock ECU, what that stock ECU would still be controlling I don't know. Fuel pump and possibly the charging/starting system https://www.rollingwrenchdenver.com/collections/honda-ruckus-nps50-ignition-system/products/honda-ruckus-plug-play-performance-cdi-coil-combo
Charging System: This is the one I am stuck on the most. Looking at the stock wiring diagram all of the AlternatoStarter leads go back to the ECU. It looks like the ruckus uses this as the starter as well as the alternator. Converting to a more normal scooter stator and using the kick start may be the move here.
If you read this far, thank you. Cheers.

2023.05.30 19:40 phantasmal-dream 41 [M4F] Toronto 🇨🇦 I like horror movies, coffee and pizza.
Not necessarily at the same time... Although coffee grounds on pizza would be pretty horrific.
Single loner homebody that is a fan of horror seeking another person to share a pizza with. Or have a conversation with while drinking coffee. Or watch scary movies with. All of the above is ideal.
Seeking long term relationship. Must enjoy scary stuff, must NOT want kids and if you're down with coffees, carbs and pizza, we're good! Ice cream too!
It doesn't have to be all horror all the time, we will enjoy other things, of course.
Non drinker, no drugs and would like to remain that way. I do enjoy an occasional toke of cannabis, but that's not important to me, and I am fine quitting that. I used to smoke cigarettes and that I have quit that for sure!
I am employed full time, I work close to where I live, and I take public transportation. I do have a license, but don't own a car. I don't live alone, in do have a roommate. I live a simple life, I'm not one for travel, I do like pets and I don't think I'd be a good concert buddy.
My ideal first date is coffees and chatting. I want to meet someone who enjoys comfortable attire, would rather window shopping, cafe relaxing, ice cream tasting, pizza consuming and healthy emotional attachment.
Me: 5'10, short brown hair, glasses, white, no facial hair, and 169 lbs. Not superficial and not perfect. Just hoping to find someone to love. I dress comfortably, jeans and a shirt - collared or t - and have a very relaxed approach to things. I enjoy humour as much as horror and want to make the most of our time together.
There's much to discuss, and compatibility isn't guaranteed, so let's start with a chat and go from there. If we don't click, no worries.
Thanks for reading!

2023.05.30 18:53 MizMarbs Suggestions for Two-Meals-A-Day Strategy
Hi Everyone -
I am an experienced Keto-er and I'm returning to the way of eating after several years away.
I am about to enter an extremely busy summer season at work, so I am wanting to do two meals a day and I want to eat the same thing every day (personal preference).
I am struggling to get my macros right in my meal planning for this go round and was wondering if anyone had some food / menu planning suggestions.
I'm doing a 40% deficit and here are my calculations:
Protein - 60g
Carbs - 34g
Fat - 142g
Kcal - 1651
Where I am getting hung up in my meal planning is reaching the 1651 kcals without totally going over the protein goal.
The foods I like most: chicken thighs & legs w/skin, ground beef, steak, antipasto-like salad, eggs, cheese, pepperoni, salami, ham, butter, broccoli, cauliflower, salad greens, tomatoes, nuts, olive oil, italian dressing, and stone berries like blueberries/strawberries when in season.
What I was thinking was an omelette for breakfast with ham/cheese/spinach cooked in butter and coffee w/heavy cream. Small stone fruit cup. Then salad, meat, veg for dinner. But I can't get the math to work across two meals. I'm always 200-300 calories short and then over on protein. I'm clear I can just add fats for calories, but I don't really want just empty fat cals to meet the kcal number. Are there any fatty snacks that won't overdo the protein?
Any suggestions for how to better portion/structure the two meals to meet the protein & kcal goal?

You know how when you get olives on a pizza it's just small sliced olives?
Well I took a big bite to get some of that crust in my bite, and i bite down on a olive pit and holy heck did that hurt my fragile tooth.
It's sore since yesterday and I'm going to see a dentist tomorrow. I'm assuming Domino's probably has some removal of liability in case of this happening anyway? Idk I feel dumb even asking about this and it's probably stupid to pursue anything unless my tooth really is messed up, I'm just wondering what the average human does in this scenario.

2023.05.30 15:45 HonkHonkCrash "How do roundabouts work?" and other adventures from a new biker
I took my first real out of town trip yesterday and put 300 miles on the bike. I had one road in particular that I wanted to ride and after that I just kept picking new directions to go. Every time I could have headed back home, it was like, "Just a little bit longer..."
My confidence has improved and my skills are following. The shop I took my bike to adjusted my clutch, so I now have an actual friction zone that I can operate in. I've also been practicing giving it a tiny bit of throttle. I did some figure 8s and u-turns in a parking lot before actually setting out on my journey. I was reliably within 3 narrow parking spaces, and got it down to 2.5 parking spaces. I'm really starting to like the workout of slow maneuvers and it's helped my confidence on the road quite a bit. It's weird though... during slow speed maneuvers, my right turns make me nervous. When I'm on the road, I'm better at right hands than left hand turns. I cut my lefts short and then have to overcorrect. I'm working on it.
I wouldn't be me without hitting a few snags and mishaps, so here's a list...
I encountered a roundabout during my travels. I rarely have to do roundabouts even in a car. My brain kind of stalled out, like "what do I do?" and I forgot everything about driving for a second. Pulled myself back, started setting myself up for a turn, and ope why am I about to hit a curb? I corrected from that, checked traffic, entered the roundabout, and for some reason let off throttle too much and stalled. Tried to start it up, stalled again, dropped to first, started it up, and completed the roundabout. Thankfully it wasn't a super busy area. Unfortunately it WAS right in front of a gas station filled with bikers, so I can never go back to this area again.
I drove on the interstate. That was scary in theory, but the reality was uneventful. I felt like I was going to vibrate off the motorcycle though.
I accidentally rode on a gravel road. I thought it would connect to another road but instead it turned to gravel. That felt unpleasant and very freaky. I dropped to about 20mph and after about a mile and a half, did a u-turn and went back. My front tire felt like it would just give if I made even a hint of a wrong move.
I made a sudden decision to turn to follow a different route. I slowed down safely enough to complete the turn but forgot to downshift so I stalled mid-turn going 30mph. Kept my head on, dropped a gear, pulled in clutch, started back up.
Since my friction zone is tiny and my bike will stall if I don't baby the throttle, I've switched to just rolling on throttle during turns, starts, whatever and let out clutch to control speed. I also found that I have to baby the throttle when coming to a stop, or else it will stall, even with clutch pulled in. It's an 03 Yamaha V Star 650, with two carbs, if anyone is curious. The jets have been cleaned recently. At this point I'm just calling it a quirk.
My favorite things are still cornering, the biker waves, and stares from children. Cornering feels amazing, even at my very safe speeds. The biker waves were awesome, there were tons of bikers on the road yesterday. When I finally got back to town, there was a group of children riding bicycles. One threw me a biker wave, so I pulled in clutch and revved a few times. They cheered, it felt great.
Edit: I should have mentioned that I don't have to baby the throttle continuously at a stop, just make sure that I have it slightly rolled on when coming to a stop. Then I can sit there and idle in first with clutch pulled in with no throttle. But if I don't baby it during the last 15-20 feet, there's a high chance it will stall. I still think I have carb issues, she's slow to warm up too. It's hard to explain and I don't know enough about the mechanics, but it just doesn't sound quite right and I'm nervous about anything sub-50 degree weather. Go through post history for a more in-depth rundown if you're bored.
