    Election Night Libation Comment
    Gregory Morris, 11/3/08 1:00:51 pm
    Jay G wants some advice.

    Personally, I think Nov. 4th is usquebaugh-time, although there are a few types of barley-juice that will suffice if you find yourself lacking a quality distilled spirit (or if you simply prefer something with bubbles.) I am also partial to Ouzo, although I prefer to only drink Greek booze when I'm in a good mood. So...

    The first suggestion I made for Jay is Avery's "The Reverend". This is a lay-you-flat-on-your-ass Belgian-style quadruple. You will need precisely one pint of this potent potable. More than a pint and you risk waking up in another country with sledgehammers inexplicably duct-taped to your arms.

    I admit that I have a significant bias towards Belgian ales. If you were to ask my top twenty-five choices, about 18 or so would either be imported from Belgium, or artful copies. I don't expect many people will be able to find handcrafted Tripels brewed by a secret order of monks in 2 gallon batches once every five years. However, there are quality standards which can only be met by smaller operations. The standard go-tos Chimay, Duvel, Ommegang, or Unibroue are always adequate.

    Note: some people say French beer is basically the same thing as Belgian. I say those people have probable never tasted French beer. The French take a unique approach to brewing beer: they start by drinking a Belgian ale, then they piss into a bottle, cork it, and increasing the price. Avoid it like the plague.

    If you live in such a depressing locale that you can find neither quality whiskey nor Belgian ale, I suggest suicide. Errr... I mean... maybe you can try finding a good Dopplebock. You'll know when you've found a good one because it required a knife and fork to drink it.

    If you live in a county or state where Good Beer (tm) cannot be acquired, I suggest driving somewhere else after casting your ballot. Living in a dry county is no excuse for drinking 3-month old sun-struck skunk-piss.

    The Reverend is some tasty beer. Can one get Stone beers in MA? I didn\'t discover them until I moved out here, but Arrogant Bastard would probably go well with November 4th. Like the election returns, it\'s delicious to some but too bitter for others. And it\'s named after John McCain.

    Ahh, I haven't had Arrogant Bastard in quite a while. That beer is worth buying for the text on the back of the bottle alone.

    Damn, now I see that someone at the original site beat me to the "some candidate is an Arrogant Bastard" joke. Figures.

    Meanwhile, how much time did you spend thinking up word problems with the answer 13? And who the hell knows the conversion between land and nautical miles off of the top of their head?
    Re: Election Night Libation
    Gregory Morris, 11/3/08 5:11:28 pm
    Todd: it took days to come up with all of those... and I'm still adding more. If you think of any other interesting questions to which to answer is 13, let me know.

    The point isn't just to block spam, but also to block casual drive-by trolls. It has worked exceedingly well thus far.
