    Now you understand some of the beer snobs on here when we laugh at people who say, "I like craft beer, I drink Elysian/Blue Moon/etc." InBev.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Im a bartender...I get a laugh out of that at least once a shift. Then again I laugh at anyone who says stuff like that anyways because they are total ******nozzles but when they name some "microbrew" that is owned by a macro I just cant help but laugh.

    Great advice received long ago:

    When all is confused, when left is right, up is down, and nothing makes sense: Stop.
    Take a deep breath.
    Rise above the situation.
    Look down at it objectively ... and follow the money.

    I saw an exceptionally stupid Facebook post asking why Nike didnít run this ad for Pat Tillman.

    Twitter finally banned Infowars and Alex Jones. If I had to guess he's eating a bowl of too-hot sorrow chili and already forgot his kids' names.

    During his first trial to keep his kids (apparently his ex-wife is suing again) his lawyers argued he forgot his kids' names because he ate chili.

    Basically argued this Simpsons scene was real life for Alex.
