On Saving Summer's Trashiest Cocktail: Make Way For The $21 Long Island Ice Tea

For my 22nd birthday, I went to a bar with a few friends that was having "Long Island" night. Long Island Ice Teas were five dollars each. They bought me four, and then I went to a friends apartment to drink more, where I became a bit comatose and tried to play beer pong while sitting on a couch, watching the room rotate around my outstretched pong ball.

I then staggered back to my house and spent an hour puking into the snow off my porch. I woke up the next morning and couldn't make it out of my house without puking, which was bad, because I was a TA and was supposed to be working that day. And then a series of bad things unrelated to the LIIT happened, but still, it overshadowed the whole weekend.

In short: Long Island Ice Tea, never again.

On What Remains: Conversations With America's Funeral Directors

@lovelettersinhell I was actually discussing this with the owner of a cemetery the other day. By law, even if the burial is completely natural, it must be done within a registered cemetery. On top of that, in most states it is incredibly hard to get approval to become a cemetery, even if it is exclusively for single-family use.
