The stupidest thing about making yogurt is that one of the ingredients of homemade yogurt is:  yogurt.  SO YOU WENT TO THE STORE AND BOUGHT YOGURT ANYWAY.'

yeah but you gotta start somewhere

And you never have another 'what comes first: the chicken or the egg' debate, as yogurt always comes first!!!

One of my new co-workers is clearly a Style Guide geek.  Reading her writing is so painful.

Passive voice is perfectly acceptable with the action and the object of the action is more important than the subject applying the action.  Which is like 95% of the time in business.

"The surveys were returned.  The data were analyzed.  The report was written and submitted.  The project has been approved."  Fantastic.  I know everything I need to know in a nice compact, easy-to-read form.  Which is just the steps and the status of those steps.

"The respondents completed the survey.  The research section analyzed the results.  The management team then approved the project."  See?  I don't give a shit who did what.  And if I did, I could guess.  The important stuff is all buried in the back of these sentences.

Also, TWO SPACES AFTER A SENTENCE AND OXFORD COMMAS 4 LYFE!!!

Oxford comma yes. Two spaces, never again. It took me a long time to break myself of 2 spaces (and I still catch myself doing it sometimes), but for the most part, I have purged the useless extra space.

yeah no.  i honestly don't think i see stray cats in the woods for some reason.  i'm out there often enough to where why i do believe i would find it a rather curious occurrence.  they can't eat shit out in the woods i imagine, conditioned to the city life.  that's just how goddamn lazy they are.  i mean look at the squirrel

Or insufferable.

If you're at a hotel, and you really insist on eating yogurt inside instead of exploring the city and having a nice, local breakfast you can get yogurt without even leaving the hotel.  And there's even like 50/50 odds that yogurt is free.

i'm not arguing in favor of bringing an instant pot outside my house just so we're clear. did anyone object?  i personally would encourage it and politely decline once offered with a breakfast
