@Gef the Talking Mongoose

If I lose my number I'm out of here. It's the only reason I keep coming back here. Seriously, the instantly gratifying feeling of superiority to the 200k'ers is pretty much free happiness any time of day.

On I Am An Object Of Internet Ridicule, Ask Me Anything

@someguy I don't remember the part of the article where the unemployed author explains that he's so privileged that he could be making the exact amazing thing you'd like him to make with the aforementioned privilege. But anyway, instead of writing an article on the internet, what exactly is it he should he be doing? And for that matter, what should I be doing with my life? Please advise.

On I Am An Object Of Internet Ridicule, Ask Me Anything

@LondonLee It may be unclear how obvious the vitriol directed towards 'hipsters' is meant for 'poseurs' but I agree that it's definitely the crux of the issue and that people need to start using it correctly for one important reason: the word Hipster (as used now) is both complimentary and derogatory. Which makes it as useless as the now dictionary approved "literally".

On Drink Dispensers Balk At Crushing Burden Of Squeezing Lime

@Ham Snadwich - well, Makers is probably better served in ice anyhow. I do find ordering bourbon on rocks generally results in a huge glass full of both ice and booze. If you order the cheaper stuff like that or Jamesons, usually it's not getting measured out. If your barkeep is being cheap about the inexpensive booze, it's time to reconsider ever returning to that bar.

Your drink will be served cold and iceless if your bartender is your friend and that's what you want.

Why are you guys still ordering drinks that allow bartenders to use buckets of ice, taking precious alcohol space away?

Guys: Neat. Neat drinks. Neat drinks everytime. You get your money's worth and you prove who your real bartender friends are. Stop it with the ice. You give them all the power.
