Patchez - you once posted about Kessler whiskey. So what would you say about Kessler and Ten High compared to each other? I can't afford the expensive stuff, and Kessler is one dollar more than Ten High. But maybe I should pay a little more. I can't afford Jim Beam. Even Evan Williams is too much. I usually get the generic drug store whiskey. But I like the look of the label on Kessler and Ten High..


Ten High has more bourbon in the blend than Kessler's. That means a bit more flavor out of the Ten High. Kessler is good and at only a buck more, I'd say buy one before you finish the TH and let your palate decide.

Somebody recommend the highest proof whiskey that is available. I don't care how much it costs. I want to drink the hard stuff.
If you can find it Stagg Jr. is usually in the 130+ proof range. Easier to find would be Bookers or Bakers both 100 and up in the proof department.
Knob creek has a really good small batch at 120 proof.

Price for power any of the Bottled in Bond bottles from Evan Williams or Henry McKenna. Any BiB stuff you find is 100 proof.

Old Ezra is 107 or 109. Old Grandad has a 114.

Happy hunting.

Where do society's rejects/dropouts go? All I can think of is the French Foreign Legion. But I'm 53 years old. I'm in shape like a motherfucker. I can run forever, I can do the pullups. But I won't get the chance because I'm too old. What else can I do? HOw can I erase everything and start over like I'm a teenager again? It is just too hard to admit I'm a failure and just coast until I die of old age.

I feel the same way from time to time.

However, I employ a rather Buddhist response to it: recognizing that I'm clinging to something, and that it's causing me "suffering," and thus relinquishing it, as it does no good -- the cessation of clinging ensues, and all is fine.

We have a stable means of supplying our blood stream with alcohol, and this alone makes me pretty content. Stay alive.

Drink, drink, drink. As usual, you motherfuckers are right.

There used to be some British mercenary company that would allow gays into their ranks. They waged war in various places on the African continent, with queers like me aiding their efforts. I only wish I was younger so I could prove to the world I can carry my own weight, that the world can depend on me. There's no more important endeavor in the world than war. Nothing else has a chance to thrive - not technology, not art, not motocross, not football, unless war first succeeds. The fighting boys in Russia and the fighting boys in the West have made sure that all of us can pursue our talents and passions in our respective locations. The parades and monuments are not enough. Before any iPhone can roll off the assembly line, there needs to be a parade for the soldiers who fought to make it possible. Before any Russian vodka comes out of a state-owned distillery, a parade needs to be had right down the middle of red square. I'm exaggerating to make my point. But I think everyone understands that the fighting has to be taken care of first. then we can all get drunk.

oetinger, so when the wall came down, what did everybody say? I'm sure that not everybody in East Germany wanted to be with West Germany. What if they wanted to stay with the USSR? But since everyone in West Germany was richer than everyone in East Germany, did the western Germans want the eastern Germans to stay over there so that they wouldn't bum any money? Did the east Germans come over there and try to get handouts from the West Germans?

I would have liked to party in East Berlin, just to see what it was like, just to hear what everyone was talking about. There must have been some people who wanted to stay in the USSR. I wonder what their reasoning was.

See, here's the thing. If I was in East Berlin and I was a good communist, I could just show up to work in the state-owned factory, did my job, and then I would be supplied with all the booze I could drink in my affordable state-owned apartment. Is that right? That would be all I want. then I could just get drunk and write crappy poetry all fucking night. I wouldn't bother anybody, and nobody would bother me. Is my thinking right?
