Re: What are you drinking?

A riff on a Boulevardier: 2 parts Rye (Geo Dickel in my case) 1 part Campari 1 part Red Vermouth (use something flavorful like Carpano Antica Formula or Vermouth del Professore) 1/4 part Fernet (I used the aforementioned Luxardo but at this amount Fernet Branca should be fine) Here's where you brea...

Re: What are you drinking?

Drinking some cigar city brown ale. Chocolate wrapped in espresso. It is amazing. Further, it does not set off my "coffee sucks" reflex. This is a really well done beer.

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

It is a more accurate way of viewing the arrangement than the common construction “insurance writes me a check in any amount no matter what”. That’s not how it works. You are agreeing to payment under specified terms. There are regs governing the complexity and prominence of key feature language. M...

Doesn't. Sound. True. Signing a policy and reneging is real. But an actual visit? Supported by prescribed notes and orders? It's begging for a settlement much higher than what was denied. And I work for an insurance ... thingy ... whatever they are calling it. They all basically do the same thing. B...

Almost forgot. He bought an $800 blue tooth set of some kind 2-weeks ago. I've already been warned not to talk to him about them.

I'm convinced my brother in law switched out the batteries in the Roku. Not to replace them. But to steal them for his man/child obsession with expensive electronics*.

Re: Video Games!

I don't really like Stellaris. It seems ok at first but it has that feature where any mistakes you made may not be apparent for a hundred hours and hey look its too late haha. Also I find the middle game boring after a point. Once borders basically get established its hard to progress in a fun way....

Liberating species. Uplifting species. Sometimes through boring head on attrition fleet battles. Sometimes ...

Huh. This was in the works from back in 2015 but the press release says the recent tax bill. I'm wondering if they are just trying to get ahead of any future nafta issues.
