If you have sandwich bread, spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese, you can make some easy pizza bites at home.

TMW a decent fic writer finally publishes a story worth reading only for you to realize that the main plot is about abuse. I’ll pass this one.

You can add toppings to it too. It’s not like regular pizza but if you crave it and would rather not splurge on the real deal, these are a good alternative. Hope you like them if you do try them.

Same thing but with different targets. I think it's awful that all three of them have their finger on the button in real life, so I can't imagine what would happen if they had something even more powerful than a nuke


isn't a nuke technically more powerful?

this notebook can only kill people if you have their names and faces (is very labor intensive... writing names takes efforts if you want a large kill count). It's completely useless, say against a random tank crew.

Plus if a conventional army showed up at your doorstep, you can't just Notebook them out of existence (what are their names even?). But you CAN drop a tactical nuke on them... and everything, tanks, IFVs, helis etc... all gone

do you mean in terms of plausible deniability?

Twit is ringing round every number in the office trying to talk to my boss even though he's now been told a half-dozen times he's out of office in meetings all day.

In what world does "he's unavailable, he's in tomorrow" get logically flowed by "okay, I'll ring back in five minutes".

Still, good test to see which of my colleagues loses their shit first. Betting pool time.
