Re: What are you drinking?

Yes if you know just a bit and ask just a few questions, you get treated really well. Notably, you aren’t “wooo! Bachelorette par-tay!!” Good producers fucking hate those visits and it’s a lot of their volume. So many people started getting a bit into wine chemistry with me and then stopped and apo...

Re: Home $weet Home

Cooking for others is fundamentally social to me. Open forever. My stated - if slightly tongue in cheek - requirements for my next hood are 1) I should be suck a chicken wing directly off of my cooktop and blow it outside and 2) it should make no sound in the process. Yeah if you have magic hood su...

Re: Home $weet Home

I fantasize about having a lab-grade fume hood for my stovetop. My current kitchen has an aftermarket above-stove microwave. They took out a vent hood that clearly vented to the outside - the holes are still there in the cabinetry above the microwave, and you can see where they patched the ceiling ...

Re: Home $weet Home

- any kind of odor, especially cooking odor, permeates the entire house and lingers (this one would drive me batty so I would have to find a workaround for my fantasy stealth box truck house) Hell this is why I oppose 'open concept' which it's not a fucking concept but whatever.

Just in time for Halloween the local Georgian-owned or similarly former CIS-citizen-owned liquor store is stocking Rogue Dead Guy. it's a fun tasty little beer and I can drink it out of its own glassware that I picked up at some pint-night thing at the Flying Saucer back in the '90s/'00s. http://far...

The pricing where I live is about $100 from Cox for internet + cable and about $120 for just internet.
So they're paying you to get cable?
Yes, because networks pay for access based on subscribers. So Comcast is selling the possibility of you seeing those networks' ads.

When AIPAC tried to bitch about it, the logical retort would be 'Supporting Israel is not the same as giving them a blank check." Logic? WRT mideast policy?

Yuge. There's a whole branch of Christians who think that propping up Israel will get the second temple built and bring on the end times and the sinners will go to hell and Jesus will come to earth and give them all the Handie of Moral Superiority. Also there are anti-Muslim (and anti-Semitic) racis...

I can't tell the players without a score card in the Mid East. Remind me again, what Wahabi regime did we successfully deal with?

I think it's also important to remember that the leaders of the Mujahideen weren't the Taliban. A couple basically signed non-aggression pacts with the Taliban, and the rest were either assassinated by them or ended up as the Northern Alliance - the guys who were our first allies against the Taliban...

Re: Orange is the new President

Someone said that he thought America having a president-for-life was a good idea. I suggested that he could be president for life if he followed the William Henry Harrison model.
