My mom used to put some coffee grounds on my ice cream when I was a little one, and I loved it so much. Or, if there was leftover brewed coffee, she’s splash some of that on my ice cream.  Then again, she used to put a scoop of ice cream on my oatmeal in the morning for breakfast, so as you might surmise, she was an Read more

When I was a teenager, my dad introduced me to the joys of pouring leftover, room temperature coffee over ice cream. I love how it crystallizes over the ice cream. It’s quite delicious.

About ten years ago a friend, who wasn’t exactly the generous sort, gave me an unexpected Xmas gift - a tin of Harrods Christmas Coffee, which apparently had cinnamon and clove flavours. I opened it after a few weeks and was surprised at how bad it was, stale, flat and actually quite unpleasant. I looked at the Best Read more

The tips in the article for sinus headaches are good, particularly around controlling humidity (though in my case I actually need to run a humidifier rather than a dehumidifier, because the cause of the inflammation is typically super dry air in my case.)

I constantly have issues with sinus headaches and have Read more

Good to know! I only saw a snippet of a bootleg because I’d really like to see it, but I didn’t want to spoil it. I was hoping for a proper theatrical release, but I can’t afford a D+ sub right now. This might be what gets me to plunk down $15 for a month of D+ / Hulu.

My only piece of advice is to NOT watch it with a Hamilton superfan. It’s a masterpiece deserving of all the praised heaped on it, but some of it’s fans are ... yikes.

The night that Princess Diana died, I just so happened to have brought home a gift basket from work that day, and in it was a big bag of chocolate covered espresso beans. I found myself completely glued to the tv coverage and was popping those beans like jelly beans. Read more

Seconding what Joel said. You should know that the entire Lifehacker staff has now read (and teared up over) your comment. This should be an essay published in the NYT. Email me at mwalbert@lifehacker.com if you need a contact.

Thank you for this article. I was placed “on the bench” just 2 weeks before my state was shutdown. It was very hard getting interviews, but eventually I was able to get a job within the company. Sadly, this new job is not the same work as my previous one. Right now, I really could have used a local office for some Read more

Joel, I totally understand your feelings in starting a new job during this coronachaos mess, and I am glad you wrote about them. I think your experience is both individual and shared in that there is a general anxiousness about the nature of work in this dank new world. With nearly 50 million unemployed in the US, it Read more

I started a new job and moved in April. I had been interviewing extensively before but the majority of companies I interviewed for went on hiring freezes. I chose the best option for myself and was happy to leave, but “lonely” is indeed an apt term for what myself and many others are feeling. I haven’t met any of my Read more

Don’t worry about it. I started a new job in a new city at the end of March.
I have yet to see my office or meet any of my new co-workers face-to-face. I haven’t even seen most of the neighborhood I live in now. Read more

I do contract work (Software Developer/Business Analyst) for Texas state agencies. I was offered a new job on a project which would have paid me 50% more than the salary I was getting. I put in my two notice on the current job, and started the new one. (Note: starting a new job right now for me, involves logging in to Read more
