I feel like we often don't acknowledge how very strange US grocery store names are. People just think it's normal to shop at a place called Big Bear or Giant Eagle or Piggly Wiggly.
So I used GPT-3 to add to a list of Perfectly Normal grocery stores.
A software tester walks into a bar.
Runs into a bar.
Crawls into a bar.

When I was young and still learning the ropes, there was just one type of guy: That Guy. The rule was "Don't be That Guy," and in theory, any guy who followed this rule faithfully knew where he stood.
That theory, however, turned out to be inadequate, even naïve. Nowadays, scores of new types of guy are identified every week.
But the rule has remained in place, leading to confusion and error, since no guy can keep track of all the different kinds of guy he's meant to don't be.
A paradigm shift is needed.

There is bad reporting going on around the news about OnlyFans. Yes it is due to the "payment processor" MasterCard but *that* reason for change was due to Exodus Cry's incessant activism against PornHub and their attempts to abolish all legal forms of pornography, sex work, Strip Clubs, etc under the guise of "think of the children".
