    The east side of the cities is so ****ed up in terms of city and county divisions. Especially Maplewood. What a stupid ****ing city shape.

    These are getting really complicated and require really tight coordination with the other wrestler. I'm not sure who's working harder on some of them. I have no idea how they don't f-ck up and actually hurt each other.

    I've always wondered how they rehearse.

    It looks vaguely like a Tetris piece where a couple areas decided to say, "F--- it, we're leaving this mess."

    Sometimes they do, thatís the problem. Triple H famously paralysed a jobber because he thought Trips was doing a different move and got dropped on his head. Certain moves are legit banned by some promotions, like the Vertebreaker and the Piledriver by WWE.

    Yep. Even back in the day, some wrestlers had moves that were banned in their contracts (Stone Cold Steve Austin/piledriver) because of previous injuries. The Power Bomb is another notorious one for possible injury. That one could legit break your neck also.

    As for cities, Crystal MN is also messed up. There's an area that is completely enveloped by another city (New Hope):

    At least you guys in the West kinda planned your cities. I mean I see identifiable geometric shapes on your maps. You wanna see a mess come to the eastern seaboard sometime. They're all messed up but Boston is on an entirely different level.

    The Mormons are the only ones who did it right. Simple grid with two wide diagonals running through the centerpoint (which is, granted, their funhouse magic underwear mosque). That actually makes sense.

    Near as I can tell they went bankrupt, were seized, then 2 guys tried to revive them and they went bankrupt.

    Speaking of, is Blatz still around? One of my most happy Ithaca memories was picking up a case of Blatz at the local gas station in 1981 for $4 including the deposit.

    Even better, for such a dirt cheap beer, they had a genuinely beautiful stained glass logo:

    It was better than Busch Light Draft, the OTHER beer people drank when I attended tUMD. Pig's Eye bottled was decent (for pzz water). Pig's Eye Lean was worse than Bud Light.

    It is still going, sort of. Pabst has the label now, and has contracted production out to Miller.

    I think I remember it had already been at least partially eaten even way back then.

    It wasn't really atrocious. It was the most generic beer I've ever had, and I've had Matt's.

    The very worst beer I ever had was Piel's Real Draft. In a can it was Schmidt's (not to be confused with Schlitz although that was also horrible), hands down.

    Looking back, canned beer in the 70's was likely specifically enumerated in the articles of the Geneva Convention.

    Off the top of my head, bad canned beers I had back then:

    Ballentine (HS kids would buy this for us in JHS I wish I was kidding)
    Budweiser
    Hamm's (I think, that may have been college)
    Iron City (without perforated tops!)
    Miller
    Olympia (this was considered very exotic because it was from the west, like Shasta sodas)
    Pabst
    Rheingold (Mets' sponsor!)
    Shaefer
    Schlitz
    Schmidt's
    Watney's (this was actually GREAT beer!)

    There was just "Beer." Black lettering, white can. IIRC it was made by Miller.

    I bought a 30-pack of that stuff for $6.99 about 8 years ago. Wasn't terrible, especially for the price.

    Olympia is still all over in the PNW. It's ****e. Spend the extra Ę and go for Rainier, it's pretty decent for cheap lager.

    High Life is still the best for cheap-o, though.
    Nothing beats an ice cold cheap lager after working up a sweat on a hot day.
