Mac's got new threads?

Is she gonna model?

Are we supposed to oogle?

I dunno about this whole 'Mac as sex object' thing. I thought we were supposed to admire her for her mind.

Writers, Mac. All we need is a prompt, and an empty one is sooooo tempting.

I remember some troll we had a while back who said he was so great because he could start threads which got a hundred or two posts on them.

Pfffft, so? We have threads which have nothing of substance in the OP which have thousands of posts.

There's no telling how far this test thread will go.

Of course, we could fire it up a bit.

Rob can fart the national anthem. Really, he can.

Hell, yes, we can argue about it. So we need to understand what we're arguing about.

We could go with:

Pro: This thread is all about Mac having some new clothing, which might be imaginary clothing so she's parading around nekkid and everyone is happy as larks to let her do so.

Con: No, she's not naked, and even if she was, this is an internet forum, so who can know who's naked when anyway? It's just a thread test.

Pick a side, Don, and I'll take the other one.

Or we could find some conspiracy theory in this to debate, too. I'm open to suggestions.

I thought it was the price of tea in China.

Isn't it interesting, though, that all this time, when we thought America would always be the preeminent marketbasket of the world, that the true masters, ages ago, got us conditioned to think about... the price of tea in China.

See, the Globalization = Chinese hedgemony conspiracy theory was true all along!

You were right. You've discovered a conspiracy in this very thread. :eek:

The price of eggs in China is on the rise, but the underlying cause is the inclusion of melamine in the chicken feed.

Meanwhile, the price of melamine in China is skyrocketing. Simple supply and demand problem there.

Allow me to recommend Woodford Reserve (http://www.woodfordreserve.com/age.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fDefault.aspx) to you. A couple steps up from MM,imo.

My preferred method is neat, with water on the side. I'm told it is an old fashioned, "bourbon snob", way to drink. I can live with that. More to the point, I'll sip a double shot all night, and come out ahead in taste -- with no "morning pain management".

Now, see, as a Celticist, I am professionally obligated to like Single Malts. When we have a conference--there are generally only two academic conferences for Celticists a year so it's a Big Deal--the folk from the UK bring "special" single malts. I've tried a lot--including things like cask aged 18 and 21 year old "special" malts And varieties of Jameson and Bushmills that are only very rarely obtainable outside of Ireland.

I really really do try; I sip and I swallow and then there's this deep reflexive automatic shudder, very much like a horse with a deer fly.

I'm thinking maybe I need to find a "starter" single malt.

In all honesty, there's this thing about academic socialization with Celticists where I do need to be able to at least enjoy sipping it.

I'll recommend the same thing I recommended to Mac (to wean her off that Maker's Mark cooking bourbon crap):

Knappogue Castle (http://www.knappoguewhiskey.com/)

It's a single malt, Irish, easy to drink, and makes you appear aloof.

Heh.

MacCannister's tipple is Maker's Mark, on the rocks.

Which, I gotta say, I like. A lot. I also like Elijah Craig (http://poisonofchoice.com/2009/02/14/elijah-craig-kentucky-straight-bourbon-whiskey/), but Maker's is still my bourbon of choice. There are things I won't drink (http://poisonofchoice.com/2009/02/17/things-that-really-should-not-be-drunk/).

Lately, I'm exploring martinis, of the traditional gin vs the vodka variety.

Sadly I can no longer deal with bourbon. I ODd on it when I was a puppy.

I did the same with tequila. No more shots for me, but I'll drink a 'rita when it's hot. That's probably the main reason I moved to Vegas, it's hot here a lot.

What would I order? A draft beer, depending on what they have. One, it's simple. Two, it doesn't say anything about you in a strange bar. Three, the beer mug might come in handy if you stepped into the wrong place.

I heard a comedian, guy never made it big but he was hilarious, who talked about walking into a bar in Oklahoma while he was on tour. He had a beer, and the barkeep asked him what sorta work he was doing in Oklahoma. He replied that he was working at the comedy club downtown. The bartender replied:

"Comedy club? Comedy club? We got us a comedy club righ' cheer. See that stick over the bar? We're gonna beat you silly with it and laugh our asses off."

Now, see, if I mention scotch-on-the-rocks, or adding a splash of soda to a single malt to my fellow Celticists, I will be at the very least pilloried, but more likely, will be immediately condemned to a wicker man (http://copycateffect.blogspot.com/2009/01/wicker-man-burns.html).

Now, see, that's interesting.

When I first go to a bar, I tend to start with a draft beer--especially if there's something local on tap.

But.

Can you elaborate on the "Two, it doesn't say anything about you in a strange bar"?
