He voiced the little boy in the famous 1969 Tootsie Pop commercial Mr. Owl "How Many Licks Does It Take?", often miscredited to fellow child actor Peter Robbins

Bonus “Mildly Interesting”: I don’t think I’ve ever seen the full version of the commercial before.

For reasons I have the same headset two times. The one I used just broke. This is the two headsets side by side. Used for roughly 7-8 years.

No caterpillers were harmed making this video. I'm assuming this is used as a scare tactic when they are threatened. Ice never seen this before and thought it was interesting.

I entered Experian into my calendar.

But I did NOT enter that weird emoji gibberish: dead roses, coffin, skull, cute puppies, happy faces, circus? What the heck is this

This tree face was on the other side of the yard.

We just lost two trees in the backyard because of a huge storm, so this feels like a good way to let our trees in the front yard know we still care.

Image on left is from 4 days ago, but the pimple was slowly forming over around 2 weeks.

The goop was sticky, not oily. Earphones are Panasonic RP-TCM130.

I was not able to find an explanation.
Something to increase cable lifespan, lubrication, rubber disintegrating, sweat and earwax that somehow got into the cable, dielectric grease, SCP-1407, no clear answer.

At first I thought the wires just somehow twisted. Nope.

Translation according to Google (with edits):

UNITED BANKERS UNION

"Alternative union for all workers"

Colombia is union territory

EVEN THOUGH THE BANKS WANT TO MAKE YOU BELIEVE IT

YOUR BOSS IS NOT YOUR OWNER

THIS BANK SQUEEZES, MISTREATS, INTIMIDATES, REPRESSES, AND HARASSES ALL ITS WORKERS VIOLATING THEIR LABOR RIGHTS

This is at JFK, does anyone know what they are used for? There wasn’t an obvious time when it was taking a picture.

I thought maybe I had accidentally put the screw in there myself but my only other box of this color I bought is 3-1/2"

Though I'm not sure this holds true for dyslexics.

This is for strictly mildly interesting material. If it's too interesting, it doesn't belong. If it's not interesting, it doesn't belong.

This is obviously an objective criteria, so the mods are always right. Or maybe mildly right? Ahh.. what do we know?

Just post some stuff and don't spam.
