Thousands of conservatives suddenly to live inside their dishwashers.
 
2020-10-20 9:23:24 AM  
For those of you visiting from nearby worldlines, this is the worldline where the US President talked incoherently about his making the nation's dishwashers function better with more water.

No farking way Trump has ever used a dishwasher in his life, or even put his own dirty dishes in one.

The best part is, water pressure has absolutely nothing to do with how a dishwasher works. Except for if you have no water, anyway.

Nope. He literally said women love him because dishwashers.

I would really love with Trump's mic cut, for Biden to just unload on him for this as the example of how completely stupid this man is.

"You are so blindingly stupid that you think for one second that people would run their dishwashers 10 times to do a load of dishes."  He turns to look at the camera.  "Have any of you ever done that?  This man hasn't WASHED ten dishes in his entire pampered boy life."  Turns back to trump.  "Now do you want to talk about the complex nature of foreign policy implications of the rise in sea levels as it relates to maritime fishing rights?  BECAUSE I GOT ALL NIGHT JACK!"

Doesn't a dishwasher fill the pan, then use the water, drain it, then refill?

Better pressure - at best would shorten fill time, which is a trivial part of the overall cycle time. Frankly, do more by upping the diameter of the feed hose

Right, it could shorten the fill time but the pump is doing the actual spraying. But I would guess the number of people choosing their president based on how long it takes their dish washing cycle to begin is somewhat low.

I just replaced the TCO on our dishwasher so I'm getting a kick...

I'm not an expert though. Wouldn't a dishwasher have a pressure regulator? I mean, I'm no engineer, but those people seem to know how to set up a machine to do it's job across a range of possible utility setups.

A couple of years ago, my landlord replaced the old dishwasher in my apartment with a newer, high-efficiency one that used far less water.

The difference was amazing.  I was basically having to wash the dishes before putting them in the old piece of shiat dishwasher; in the new one, I just needed to scrape off really large bits of things.

Trump's understanding of all this comes from the time he was 7 and following the maid around to insult and berate her about things.

Was gonna say, don't they mostly just fill up once or twice per cycle and reuse that soapy water? Does he think all the water that gets sprayed on the dishes is always coming straight from the water pipes and the soap just gets kinda thrown in there somehow?

/$5 says he came up with this one on his own.

According to Trump the things women do outside the home is: looking pretty on your arm, shopping, getting their nails done, and giving birth.

I've never understood his "it takes 7 flushes now" argument and the light bulb thing about how LEDs suck and make him look weird and now we can have incandescents again.

Like, on what planet?  I've had two new toilets installed in the last decade, one of them in 2016.  They're fine.  I also had a case where I had one incandescent and one LED recessed can light on the same switch.  The only visible difference between them was that the LED took a split second to turn on.  That was nearly imperceptible.  LED lights are pretty danged awesome now and you can choose whatever color temp suits you.

This is George HW Bush levels of out of touch.  These are Trump's "guessing at the price of bread" moments and people aren't seeing it somehow?

A guy who eats that many cheeseburgers and KFC apparently had some bad experiences with the early generation of low flow toilets. It was apparently traumatizing. It traumatizes me to think about his experience.

Ehh, the reality is that it's never clear until years later how well these things work, because lawmakers tend to engage in wishful thinking.  That's why virtually everything in California now is labeled as containing chemicals that are known to the state of California to cause cancer.

Back in the 80's they introduced water-saving toilets that allow much less water through per flush.  But then people started flushing their toilets twice because they didn't work well... using more water... and complaining about them.

Expensive dishwashers that are designed to work on well water are going to do just fine regardless, whereas cheap ones need more water...that's probably not going to change overnight just because someone made a new rule, because most people don't want to spend $1000 on a new dishwasher when the one they have works.

That's the closest he has to an argument for groups who refuse to support him even after he made a big show of giving them what he thought they wanted (regardless of whether he actually gave them much). They should vote for him because they owe him.

The Trump campaign are whining about an alleged lack of "foreign policy" questions to be posed on Thursday. Clearly Trump wanted to take credit for the Israel-UAE accord (in which his real role was minimal), and the assassination of General Soleimani, and insist that if American Jews had any sense of gratitude he'd vote for him in return for what he supposedly did for "their" country.

Like, on what planet?  I've had two new toilets installed in the last decade, one of them in 2016.  They're fine.  I also had a case where I had one incandescent and one LED recessed can light on the same switch.  The only visible difference between them was that the LED took a split second to turn on.  That was nearly imperceptible.  LED lights are pretty danged awesome now and you can choose whatever color temp suits you.

This is George HW Bush levels of out of touch.  These are Trump's "guessing at the price of bread" moments and people aren't seeing it somehow?

It's part of his whole "grasping at straws to come up with reasons to hate environmentally-friendly things because they're left-wing" shtick he does.

They were not our best and brightest, but pretty sure they weren't rapists or drug dealers.

I've had one of those door to doors show up afterwards. We got ours from a local store. Not to sound like a spokesperson for them but it's 16 years old and still going strong. Some of the prior cleaners we had would barely last a year before self destructing.

History of every law-demanded Tech change ever:

Old Tech uses too much energy/water/ or is unsafe.

Government passes law.

New Tech is uses less energy/water or is safer, but costs more or is less desirable because doesn't work as well.

People complain, Republicans want to repeal law, Democrats don't.

Companies listen to complaints, create New Tech v.2, which uses less energy/water, costs go down, people who are smart embrace newer tech because it is better than the Old Tech it replaced.

Republicans pretend New Tech v.2 is just the same as New Tech, still try to repeal law.

Everyone thinks Republicans are stupidly out of touch because they can't recognize that New Tech v.2 is superior to Old Tech.

Here's the deal, Trump experiences something once, and for him it never changes. Low flow toilets definitely used to suck, and that is when he encountered one. Either that, or he got that one from back when Ann Coulter was on his side, because that's been her rant for awhile now. With light bulbs, he's probably conflating CFL bulbs with LEDs. CFLs sucked major balls when they first came out, and they were never what you would call 'great'. Then they went the way of the dodo, to be replaced by LEDs, which were goddamn expensive at the beginning. So combine the poor light quality and color temp from the CFL bulbs with the high price point of the LED bulbs, and you have your boogey man.

Trump just doesn't update his points of reference, so if the toilet sucked 20 years ago, it must suck now. He has no grip on reality.

Seriously, who-t-f was asking for that?


My dad has been biatching and moaning about the loss of incandescent bulbs since...  well, since whenever CFLs started to take over.  He actually bought a giant stockpile of incandescent bulbs before they pretty much went away.

I'll grant him that CFLs are awful, and especially the early ones.  But he was still whining about it as recently as a year ago, talking about how stupid it was that he couldn't find them anymore and he was stuck with CFLs.  Then he came to my house, and asked where I was able to get all the incandescent bulbs for all of my lamps that looked so great.  "Dad, they're LEDs.  They are getting pretty good, and my energy bill is a fraction of what it used to be, especially after I replaced the bathroom halogens with those 10W LEDs.  Went from 400W to 40 for the bathroom lighting, which is great since the kids tend to leave the lights on."

He looked kind of stunned, and then said, "Those bathroom halogens are...  LED?  Wow."

He was a bit skeptical, and started asking me questions about how much they hummed, and how I dealt with flicker.  I told him the dimmable ones sometimes hum if you start them at a low power, but it goes away once they warm up.  I also told him it's been three years since I changed a lightbulb.  He now uses LEDs himself and I haven't heard him biatch about it since.

I am sure that there are still people out there that get all bent out of shape over lightbulbs.  My dad is a Trump guy, but he's at least finally come around on the lightbulb thing and stopped being annoying on that one issue.  Baby steps.

FTA:


Donald Trump has suggested that his administration's actions on dishwasher pressure meant women supported him.

Without providing details on policy, the US president told supporters on Sunday that "the women come up to me, the women they say dont like me, they actually do like me a lot".

And that, said the Republican candidate, was because he "freed up" dishwashers to dispense more water.
"So, you go into a hotel or you buy a house, and they have what's called a restrictor," he told supporters in Nevada. "[The] same thing with your dishwasher, I freed that up too."

In an apparent reference to environmental standards that his administration rolled back, the president said dishwashers had a problem until his intervention.

WTH?  Is he taking drugs before his speeches?
 
2020-10-20 1:32:12 PM  
To be absolutely fair to him (mark that down on the calendar, I don't do it often), Republicans biatch farking constantly about environmental regulations ruining all kinds of shiat, like water pressure, toilets, lightbulbs and the air, you know, by making it more breathable. They hate all that shiat. They liked it back in the 1970s, when the air pollution here was like Beijing on a bad day now, the lightbulbs put out a shiatload of heat while using up a surprising amount of electricity and every toilet used 15 gallons a flush, or something like that. Apparently, not wasting as much energy as possible is for pussies and spending more money than you need to on electricity makes your dick bigger.

So I'm sure one of his stupid farking minions wanted to keep him away from anything problematic (ie, everything else) and told him to focus on environment stuff and gave him a few stupid talking points to yap about so he wouldn't whine more about Fauci or Hillary Clinton or the stupid, failing Hunter Biden bullshiat.

So for him, this counts as ALMOST comprehensible. Almost.

Most all dishwasher are a time based fill. This is figured by the normal average water pressure to the home and the size of flow washer in the inlet valve. Adding more water, per cycle, than is needed to keep the pump supplied with water would not help anything.
Four tips to make a dishwasher work better and last longer :
1 Prime your hot water line to the sink before use
2 use liquid, powder, or gel detergent, pods are not right for dw's that have 2 chambers in the dispenser
3 load heavy items, on the top rack, to the back, and
4 prop the door open with a towel to let air out in between use. This helps the racks and door gasket last longer.

myth321: Most all dishwasher are a time based fill. This is figured by the normal average water pressure to the home and the size of flow washer in the inlet valve. Adding more water, per cycle, than is needed to keep the pump supplied with water would not help anything.
Four tips to make a dishwasher work better and last longer :
1 Prime your hot water line to the sink before use
2 use liquid, powder, or gel detergent, pods are not right for dw's that have 2 chambers in the dispenser
3 load heavy items, on the top rack, to the back, and
4 prop the door open with a towel to let air out in between use. This helps the racks and door gasket last longer.


The only way I can get hot water to my dishwasher is to prime the hot water line and then leave it trickling the entire time the dishwasher is running.

fernt: I don't know about dishwasher pressure, but I just want to find a source for some decent, old fashioned 100 watt incandescent light bulbs.

If Trump can fix THAT I'll vote for him.

LarryDan43: Did you know a handyman for the Trump family has been secretly messing with the flow of faucets and shower heads in his home to drive Trump crazy?

Gonzo317: Well at least it is consistent with the Make America Great Again message.  Which is all about taking the US back to the good old days of Mayberry, when the world was all white and women knew their place.

Fireproof: xrayspx: I've never understood his "it takes 7 flushes now" argument and the light bulb thing about how LEDs suck and make him look weird and now we can have incandescents again.

Like, on what planet?  I've had two new toilets installed in the last decade, one of them in 2016.  They're fine.  I also had a case where I had one incandescent and one LED recessed can light on the same switch.  The only visible difference between them was that the LED took a split second to turn on.  That was nearly imperceptible.  LED lights are pretty danged awesome now and you can choose whatever color temp suits you.

This is George HW Bush levels of out of touch.  These are Trump's "guessing at the price of bread" moments and people aren't seeing it somehow?

It's part of his whole "grasping at straws to come up with reasons to hate environmentally-friendly things because they're left-wing" shtick he does.

Is this related at all to his recent water-related Executive Order?

Xzano: August11: For those of you visiting from nearby worldlines, this is the worldline where the US President talked incoherently about his making the nation's dishwashers function better with more water.

Thank you for clearing that up. I saw the thread title, understood the phrase to be a temporally local phrase meaning, "Trump is bringing up trivial crap, when we got real problems." Clicked the link, and no that is actually what he said. I had to check my Chonalbraneometer, and sure enough I'm at 1.129954β.

eKonk: dildo tontine: maldinero: This is the same moron that pats himself on the back for "bringing back" incandescent lighting.
Seriously, who-t-f was asking for that?

Easy bake oven owners?

Yep, it takes FOREVER to get my brownies cooked over the LED bulb I'm using now...


My daughter's Easy-Bake had a first generation CFL. We're still waiting on that devil's food cake and she's 42 now.

Easy-Bake Ovens use a heating element these days.

Longer cycles may have a thermal hold, other than that, you could use one of the heat options ( high temp washe, or sani rinse).

Thanks for explaining my ultra-basic dishwasher to me. I obviously have no idea what I'm doing.

HerptheDerp: Happy Anniversary sweetie! I bought you a new vacuum cleaner.


My wife actually asked for a Shark vacuum for her birthday last year. She's not very big and had difficulty maneuvering our Hoover around.

Yes. I vacuum as much as she does.

in re hot-water line, TIL!!! so, tyty for that.

at some point a decade or two ago, a friend's father got it in my head that dishwashers "always" heat their own water (which sounded like it made sense - better temperature regulation, not depending on hot water supply / not stealing from a shower or washing machine cycle, no weird particulates from the water heater tank, &c. &c.) - and so up until this very day in time, cold-water line was always my belief/ass-umption. even having installed and worked on dishwashers more than a few times, the existing line was always cold to the touch, so, yeah, I just ass-umed.

also, very interesting note about the tidepods! we're about to run out, which is the point I sometimes do the "spoon of baking soda and 2 drops of dish soap" thing, so huh yeah I'll buy a box of Cascade instead of the blobs.

/it's always a good day when I learned something!
