Mutual assured destruction

Is this phrase still in use? Randall Munroe would know how to find out. Anyway, used to refer to the results of a buy one get one sale on coffee cakes.

I would also like to report that the parking ticket I've been procrastinating paying was a warning, not a ticket. Silly hobbits.

Pro tip: changing time records formatted as 6am to the format 6AM is not as simple as search and replace.

I pronounce this "pozeshun".  Whose idea was this spelling?

The granola bars were good.  Too good.

I'll try this next, though I might sub in peanut butter for a stash buster:

Applaud

Two p's, for some reason, and is "laud" a root word (a quick search traces it to "plaudere -- to clap").
