Why are flasks so fucking hard to fill?

Post by Patchez »

Tiny little fucking necks and a shitty little "funnel" that comes with it if you're lucky. It's like the shitbags that designed them never filled one in their lives let alone drank from one.

Don't even get me started on filling one of the ill designed devices when in your cups. Why the fuck do we put up with this shit?





By the way did anyone see Michael Cuddlitz on the Talking Dead when Steven Yuen offered him a glass of wine? Mike whipped out a flask and took a long pull. It was pretty bitchin'.
In hind sight forget all I said. Flasks are the shit.

But you do know the paper-funnel, do you?
As long as you don`t use TP or Newspapers it works astonishingly well

While watching the debriefing, I raised my drink in blurry, vague recognition of him taking a swig from a flask on live, national television, and then that moment was lost in the fog and crash of the ocean waves as i chugged more.

Good that someone had the sense to record it, that fine part.

Now, why do I always feel the need to fill one of my flasks when near the end of a bottle?

It's it to save it and hide it from myself for the next day?

Nay, I say unto thee Wilbur, Neigh. It's simply reckless behavior. Or wreckfull. I'll start doing this over a bowl instead of the sink.

What helps is one of those pouring spouts, like in bars, and not having the shakes.

This is a device that you'll be using while drunk... who's bright idea is it to make it that hard to fill?

I also have a similar problem with a set of lowball glasses that I got free with a bottle of Alberta Pure vodka. Nice looking glasses, but they're rounded, with a narrow bottom. They are so easy to tip over, as I learned when I spilled an entire, freshly poured drink down the back of my desk. Something that will be handled while you're drunk shouldn't tip that easily. I switched to my cylindrical Canadian Five Star glasses.

Oh wow what a good idea! I would buy a lowball glass with a large bottom like that! Not only will it be hard to tip, but it won't leave rings on the desk (if you don't use a coaster.)
(Another thing.... about coasters; they're all absorbent and flat... who wants that? I want something that doesn't soak up liquids, with a lip that contains the condensation and the drink that drips down the side... that's why I use ashtrays as coasters.)

I reckon a syringe like you use for filling printer cartridges is the way to go. I've never had luck with funnels. I'll report back after further research

Pro tip. ?Use fresh syringes. Taste issues will crop up if you don't. That being said, cyan pairs with bourbon nicely and magenta is your go to for tequila. I'm a cheap shit and now I know. Passing the knowledge on.

My friend once joked that while I was filling a flask- that I should have done it over dozen shot glasses so we'd have couple of rounds ready for everyone.
