On a related note, if you are a big international company, you should probably know better than to have two products whose names differ only by one letter, an R or an L. Yes, it's a stereotype, but it's also true.
That's lacist.

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...

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 ...

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 thing 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...
