Krave Pineapple Orange Beef Jerky

Pineapple Orange is yet another one of  Krave’s gourmet jerkys. This is a very sweet and fruity beef jerky, as you would expect. It smells citrusy, but the odor of cooked pineapple can’t be ignored. It’s reminiscent of a holiday dinner, with meat and fruit scents fighting for your nose’s attention. The jerky is not as moist as I expected, it was pretty dry and slightly crumbly around the edges. It smells better than it tastes. It’s kind of dull on the taste buds, plus it was really dry and hard to chew. It takes like it’s past the sell by date but it’s not. This was a disappointing purchase. Krave has a lot of jerky verities that are better than this one, but this is one of the flavors you should avoid.

Sticking Your Phone in Rice

It was really hot the other day, so I went swimming with a couple of friends. One of my friends was being really meticulous about emptying his pockets before jumping into the pool. He took off his watch, his chain, he took out his cash, he removed his wallet, then he ran to the pool and did a cannonball. He came up a second later with a scowl on his face and his iPhone in his hand. Fortunately, other people realized what had happened instantly, and before you know it his phone was in a bag of rice. Sticking your phone in rice and leaving it overnight will typically get your phone working again. The rice absorbs the moisture and your phone should start working again once it’s dried out. It’s important not to test your phone out while it’s still wet because you can short circuit it, and then no amount of rice will be able to save your phone. Rice is a wonder food. It feeds the world and saves electronics. It does way more for humanity than I ever will.

A Damp Towel

You get out of the shower or the pool and it’s time to dry off. You reach for a towel and are dismayed when you find it’s still slightly wet. Fuck. A damp towel is damn near useless. You use towels to dry off. You associate them with feeling warm, dry, and comfortable. A damp towel might still absorb some moisture but it’s not going to cut it. And it feels weird on your skin, like your cousin putting a hand on your knee. It’s just not right.

Lying in Bed While It’s Raining Outside

It is raining cats and dogs outside but you’re as snug as a bug in bed. Lying in bed while it’s raining outside is one of the great simple pleasures in life. You’re warm and relaxed and enjoying the soothing pitter-patter as the raindrops splash down. You know that the world outside your window is getting drenched while you remain completely dry and completely comfortable. Life is good on those wet mornings when you have no reason to get out of bed.
