Deep thoughts - Friend, Male, from Amsterdam

Getting to the point where I am now took 3 months. I am lucky it all worked out but I am going to enjoy it. True friends make life better... Oct 23, 2020 at 5:02 PM

      Best purchase in ages: cheap filter coffee machine. Why? I ended up with leftover coffees that are actually good, I have to use them...

        wish I could use that. I did until I found temp out of nozzle was 155 F, way below needed 193 for proper extraction. At this altitude we got to go vigorous boil and pour to get it right.

      Partial lockdown in NL. Guess what the Dutch king does? He really cares about his country...

        It seems that politicians and heads of state forget how fragile the lives are of everyday people. If they could walk a mile in our shoes...

        Even QE2 went visiting without a mask. They say they checked everyone and it was safe, but she, of all people, should understand about setting an example. Maybe she's been Bojoed.

      The Dutch approach to Covid19 even disgusts the Dutchies. No consistency, just favouritism and talk...

        NL is heading into the BoJo-zone. That is the problem. Testing was done on a small scale, not a large scale and the organisation charged with updating the numbers lags behind. The numbers are not to be trusted because the cabinet has been lying from the start. Save yourself and your loved ones.

        I'd ride a bike everyday if that would be practical regarding distances. I dont get city folks here, buying 60k-100k SUVs to sit in s** city traffic. I guess everyone wants to get out of the city, fast , on the weekends.

      James Hoffman was right. His approach to the French press is good. Thing is 15 grammes per 250ml is too little for me. I am at 20 grammes.

        In addition to his method using 75g/L, I stir for a minute after pouring. Always gives good result.

        Amir can measure a meter and still call it a yard. The HD250 II Linear is good, AKG K240 DF good without AKG build quality issues.

        Picked these up for a friend. If you want an honest sounding headphone for less than 500 Dollars/Euros, these are one of the best. Better than the HD600 for me yet I prefer the warmer HD600-sound.

      There is a point after your twenties when you simply know what you want. Enough happened, you wised up. More relaxed and focused these days.

        I have recently been offered another fixed job. Had a talk about my future at my current job. 50/50 I am about to walk out if I don't receive a good offer for further growth and/or development. Keeping my cool these days. Too many idiots there, trying to keep my department running smoothly.

        Good employees are getting hard to find. I've heard in the US restaurant employees are prone to drama. I hate drama. Therefore you would be a solid, no BS, for sure hire.

        There will be some talks. If there are no opportunities for development and/or growth, the answer is no. I am in my 30ties now, I need to work on my future.

        True but there was fake laughter, and that's handily worse. There are times when I wonder whether it's worth trusting that small voice that catches something off but it was right here, may be worth re-investigating that skillset.

        The fact that there was no or less financial compensation based on skin colour in the video participation, wow that is mean. Sure there are contracts and other contracts, but this is the 21st century. I would not want to have B.A. Test Kitchen on my resumé right now...

        If my constant talking about the show weren't obvious enough indication I was a big fan, but I'd happily see it buried six feet under because of how demeaningly they treated people. I doubt it'd kill a resume unless the position were one of authority but point taken
