Because I haven't been able to get any laundry times since thursday I'm now going to have to handwash my work shirts. Should be easy, right?
Speaking of laundry, why is it that the detergent that I mixed up myself is far better than stuff I buy pre-mixed? I can go 15 feet from the detergent shelves, buy three boxes, mix those together, and I've got something that works better than anything else I've ever tried. Go home, detergent companies. You're drunk.
You'd think that Unicode is big enough to have a WTF character.
To all the FBI and ATF agents trolling this board, I want to make it clear that Griot is indeed talking about laundry detergent which is not code for ANFO or anything like that.
(they're onto you, man, run!)
I don't know why I bother getting toys for my dog, he annihilates the squeakers or in this case the crinkly bit within 5 minutes. He still seems to be having fun, though.
In dog-minutes, that's like 35 minutes.
My daughter's 6th grade class watched a video of how McNuggets are made last year and she has sworn she will never eat them again.
The very first rule is never to listen to Nute about anything that isn't related to kickball or explosives... and I'm not sure about explosives, guy did blow himself up after all.
When that is said, the answer to your question is yes. The nuances of taste in whisky is much greater than what explosiveman is trying to tell you. And at the pinnacle of that is the good single malts, which have been made with great care and over a long time, because it's not blended together to achieve some sort of standard taste every batch and every year is different and there's a lot of nuances of taste there to discover.
But it is an acquired taste and if your only use for strong alcohol is to get you drunk and add some bitterness and flavours to mixed drinks, then you have a long way to go. And it's not certain you'll ever get there, or will want to.
But if you're really curious, then go to the whisky-thread and ask your questions there. People more knowledgeable than me can guide you (I just know what I like and find it hard to explain why).
This thread confuses me. People really buy shit and leave it sitting about unused? Or buy things just to have them?
The concept distresses me! Stop doing something so bizarre!
When I buy stuff it's a purchase of something I'll enjoy at a price I consider reasonable. And then I go about using it. Like my new Calvin Klein jacket which I absolutely adore and spent a couple hours parading around in in my apartment last night. Totally not weird at all! And then I wore it today so that I can look extra snazzy while sitting in front of the giant window. My coworker was unimpressed, but he's wearing a moth gnawed NANOG shirt from the age of dinosaurs so I don't really know what I was expecting there.
Anyway I'm excited to do some post holiday Macy's shopping now that I've 'discovered' a trendy espresso place with delicious ginger molasses cookies a couple streets away. Cookies are of course an essential and non-frivolous purchase and if you disagree I'm afraid I'll have to stab you in the fucking face you fuck. The girls I was with were disapproving of the cookies because they don't like ginger SO THEY SUCK WE'RE NEVER HANGING OUT AGAIN FOR LIKE THE FIFTIETH TIME.
And can I ask why it is so hard to find a nice pair of faux leather jodhpur boots for men? I need frivolous straps on my fancy non-cow ankle booties so that I can feel ridiculously awesome and no one seems willing to oblige which makes me sad.
How many unplayed games do you have in your Steam library?
One, Orion Dino Beatdown. It was gifted to me.
Not everyone is all anarchy in the uk, dude!
Go fondle your chickens!
I think this firmly establishes you as an alien, possibly from Planet Fabulous 12, but still an alien.
The young ones started laying! I opened the pophole and one was all OMG WHAT ARE YOU DOING alarmed noises. I STOLE THE EGGGGG.
They're not a laying breed, so they're oddly non caring about the whole thing.
I misread this as "poophole"
No no no. I buy things I use. I use everything I buy. It doesn't make those things any less frivolous, though.
So did I.
To be fair, listening to Nute about scotch is like listening to Hanzii about hair care. ZING!
If a frivolous purchase drives
Aeon221 crazy, is it really frivolous?
Yes very. Ouch.
Eh, I don't get it.
Is it because I have as much hair as you got taste?
Do you want to hear about the time one was egg bound? No?
I make no bones about the fact that I don't know anything about scotch and, being surrounded by people who do, will not try and fake it. "Yes, try the Glumfiddlybits 25 year, it has a loamy character with afternotes of petrol and capsaicin!" I have not had very good experiences with scotch, to the point where if I'm going to drink whiskey it'll either be an aged bourbon or something mixed and flavored like Bailey's.
Were it not so damn expensive for something I might not even like, I wouldn't mind learning more and maybe acquiring a taste for it.
Nute: if you like a good bourbon, go find yourself a bottle of Evan Williams Single Barrel. Should be around $35. As for scotch, if you want to try a few different ones, best thing to do is find a bar that stocks a bunch of good ones, and go try some :)
OH BROKEN FORUM. OH YOU~
I went to one of the new BevMo's that has opened up in the Seattle area recently. I wasn't too impressed, to be honest. I didn't see anything in the areas I was interested in that really surprised me - just the same stuff everyone else carries. I bought a few pint bottles of beer and a fifth of Kraken rum was all.
Mom: "Have you considered the possibility that this is psychosomatic?"
Me: (unspoken) "Gee, have you considered the possibility that your entire trip out here was a waste of time and money and that you are, in fact, making my health issues worse by your presence?"
Psychosomatic. Fuck me.
Wasn't that, like, the first thing you considered anyway?
How long has it been since your last exorcism?
Hm. Good question.
I know a man. Oh and Quackers is good ___b

aaaaand the rolling pin. I'LL BE THERE IN FIVE MINUTES.
Here's what you do, Speak. Start talking to her about rashes, poison ivy, the like. She'll be all itchy inside of five minutes. Then you say, "THAT'S what psychosomatic feels like. Enjoy."
It's gotten to the point before Christmas, where I'm free with nothing to do, but everyone else is busy. So I'm just sitting about doing nothing.
I recommend switching it up by doing something.
