Oatly's bizarre Super Bowl ad helped the company sell out a t-shirt saying 'I totally hated that commercial'

Oatly's new t-shirt following its Super Bowl ad. Oatly Vegan milk brand Oatly released a bizarre Super Bowl LV commercial featuring CEO Toni Petersson. In the 30-second spot, Petersson plays sings a jingle about the brand while standing in a field. Bracing for a negative response, Oatly released an "I totally hated that Oatly commercial" t-shirt that sold out in under 5 minutes. Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories. Super Bowl LV watchers took to Twitter to flame Oatl...

Help with another template

My old #kobopath column (used for my device save template) was an enumerated column...which had the same values my top-level tags. So I changed it to this: Code: {tags:'list_re($, ',', '^(.*?)($|\..*$)', '\1')'} This works as expected - it shows Fiction, Nonfiction, Fanfiction, etc and it works with my save template. :cool: However, my old enumerated column also had a separate entry for PDFs. How would I change this template so that it shows "PDFs" instead of the top-level tag if tha...

Weekend Reading 2.7.21

How are all of you? No doubt watching the Big Game today! I love the Superbowl… the snacks, the commercials, and the game itself. That’s how I’m spending my afternoon. Today is my daughter’s seventeenth birthday. SEVENTEEN. I love hearing about her dreams and watching her live her best life everyday. I’m so excited for her future. She’s talking about exploring the world after she graduates in 2022 and going to university in Europe. I like to think she’s inspired by her mama but her courage and s...

OPDS Client that will allow selection of format?

I've been using Steiner Bang's OPDS client for calibre, and it's great for letting me know which books from Standard Ebooks have been updated. The only problem is that the only format the plugin will allow downloads for is epub, and I need azw3 since I have a Kindle Oasis. Does anyone know if there's an OPDS client for calibre that will allow for a selection of formats? Thanks, Kevin

Henry Repeating Arms Side Loading 45-70 Rifle Review

Side Gate Lever Action Rifle in 45-70 U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Almost 160 years after the fact, Henry Repeating Arms finally added a side loading gate to their line of rifles which for the longest time had only been front-loading tubular magazine rifles. A few months back I was lucky enough to try out one of the first of these rifles chambered in 35 Remington, but all it did was make me long for other calibers in the same platform! So when I was offered their ultimate big bore rifle in 45-70,...

How to combine chapter titles and subtitles

Hello, I have a problem with chapter detection in the calibre editor. I have a book in which each chapter is defined like this: Code: Chapter XX Title of the Chapter I can't for the life of me find a way to have both tags combined in a unique chapter element in the ToC. I tried some XPath functions and operators with no success, the best I can manage is to have them indented under the "chapter nn" element. Do you have any idea how to do this? Thank you

Are book readers a bubble?

Research Article Personal experiences bridge moral and political divides better than facts https://www.pnas.org/content/118/6/e2008389118 My conclusion: Book readers are a... bubble. Reading books gives you either more facts, or second hand experience. A well-read person mostly impresses book readers. It's like preaching to the choir. You could say you just read books for your own pleasure. Fine. Just don't expect to bring up something you read in a conversation and convince anyone. It's like br...

Pro-Gun and Pro-Responsibility: Not “Only Ones” Elitism ~ Video

Opinion Pro-Gun and Pro-Responsibility: Not “Only Ones” Elitism, iStock-greenleaf123 USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- A former executive of a gun company recently fell into a trap laid for all of us who know and use guns. That trap is elitism – the idea that because we’ve invested the time and effort into learning gun safety and skills, that we’re an elite fraternity. The “only-ones” qualified to safely and responsibly handle firearms. What’s worse, those who fall into this trap will often fall farthe...

PW3 Jailbreak option for PW3 on FW 5.13.3--not yet?

Hello, I'm new to the community and already pleasantly overwhelmed by all the helpful information. I have a PW3 on FW 5.13.3 that I'd like to jailbreak. I read the post about the PW4 version for this FW but can't find anything for PW3. Can someone smarter than me please confirm that a JB for the PW3 is not yet available for FW 5.13? If that's the case I can just stop looking and try again in a few months. Many thanks.

Gratuitous Gun Pr0n #197...

You know what nobody seems to make? Reproductions of the rather distinctive .22/.32 Heavy-Frame Target stocks. Since target revolvers were shot single-action, these add a little more space around the backstrap to better position the thumb and trigger finger for that style of shooting. Real original .22/.32 target stocks, almost always (and usually incorrectly) referred to as "Bekeart grips", bring hundreds of dollars on auction sites and, frankly, I just don't want them on this gun that badl...

Three Degrees Fondly Fahrenheit

It was cold out there, but the inch of fresh fluffy powder that dusted the walks last night was still untrodden. I decided to get at it before any masochists out jogging or dog-walking put footprints on it*, and so I wrapped my head in the soft, warm pashmina from friend-of-the-blog MK to ward off frostbitten ears & nose and headed out. With only an inch of dry powder on the walks, the sheet metal edge on the shovel blade was ungodly loud on the concrete at this hour, so I tried to get it ove...
