Re: What are you drinking?

I like the brut stuff. It's IPA without all of that grainy sweetness. Yeah, it's out of balance and no I won't drink them all the time but when I want a bitter punch in the face it fits the bill.

ETA: I also like campari and most amaros so... yeah.

Re: Horrible, Offensive Geekery

Good call. It might be easier to start by eliminating the inessential movies: Thor, Black Panther, GotG 2, Spider-Man Homecoming, Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp. It's also not clear that any of the Iron Man movies are strictly necessary. So that's got it down to 13-16. All of your excluded movies ar...

Re: What are you drinking?

MODUS HOPERANDI - IPA by Ska Brewing (CO) At 6.8% ABV it's a wee mite strong for me. Damned tasty though. Good bitter bite without being overpowering (I'm looking at you Dogfish Head). But it's the finish that makes it. A bright piney dry-hop aftertaste that lingers. The can sports the phrase "Lip ...

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

The mayor of a mostly-white Georgia town about 50 miles from Atlanta allegedly withdrew a candidate from consideration for a city administrator job "because he is black, and the city isn’t ready for this" (exact quote). Another member of the city council says he shares the mayor's views about race ...

Thank you, but the point is that neglecting to include the name or number of the bills in question (especially when space is not really at a premium) is failing to do basic journalism.

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

Whelp, I guess good think I hadn't pulled the winter tires off yet. Just got a 2" dump of heavy wet, in my wife's words, "snain". It'll probably mostly melt off today but if not I'm hoping it doesn't freeze overnight. I have appointments to pull the studded tires Thursday and Friday.

That sounds more like a video card issue than a monitor one, particularly if you power off the monitor and then back on again and it shows the freeze frame.

Spring has sprung and almost a full month early! Daytime highs have been low 50s (one day it hit 60), nighttime lows are just at freezing, willows have popped and everything is reddening up. Got the first rows of peas in the ground yesterday.

I like that new show "What We Do In The Shadows" (based on a movie of the same name): it's a fake reality show about central European vampires living in modern Staten Island. Only two episodes have aired thus far, but they were very funny. If you haven't seen the movie, highly recommended. Matt Ber...

Moose bourguignon (filled out with some tri-tip to fluff it to 4lbs of meat) was the big family roast this weekend. Nothing fancy but damn it was good. I made it two days ahead of time since stew is always best on day 3.

A spherical birfer in a vacuum no less.

Also, MMR vaccination rates are pretty consistent all the way back to the dial-up era.
That is interesting. The outbreaks are because of concentrations among the unvaccinated I guess then.
So, that's a positive mark for social media, yeah?
