    Any whiskey drinkers?

    Increased demand forced them to mix in some younger juice. Which is fine by me - the 12 was probably a little too intense and oak-ey. I just had a sip of the new one and it's really good... very similar to the old recipe, just a touch less syrupy. :greencheck:

    Yeah yeah, that was me avoiding the question altogether. I have no serious answer. The simulation argument bugs me for a reason that'll probably appear silly. In the same way that a racing videogame is a reasonable substitute for real racing (and indeed, racers train on simulators all the...

    Any whiskey drinkers?

    No such thing here, amigo. Our selection is pathetic. I just realized I've never had Basil. Probably because the reviews are largely underwhelming and the price tag is too high.

    Zero seems easier to explain than 10^53 kg. Zero is a comfortable resting state. I did zero work so far this afternoon. I have zero desire to rewatch Hamilton. My wife never asks me why I didn't buy a new guitar pedal today. (I actually did and I snuck it in with the groceries, but as far...

    I think I'm just getting soft with age. Atheism is not an especially fun position to defend. Fair enough. I shouldn't generalize my own atheist posture. But I feel like there's something non-committal about atheism in general - not believing in a higher power and offering no alternate...

    Any whiskey drinkers?

    Got my first Elijah Craig without the age statement, looking forward to it. Saw some unusual bottles on the shelves including this Colorado whiskey: $80 for Bulleit?!? 🤦‍♂️

    Conrad Black is an idiot who knows big words and how to assemble them.

    I probably went around thinking "we exist because of this original explosion and that's that" for most of my life, not questioning said explosion. But sure, I think all atheists want to be proven wrong.

    Just thinking about the fundamental question: "Why is there something instead of nothing?" brings you to all sorts of scientific impasses. Atheism sidesteps that fundamental question. "We're here because of the Big Bang" is not an answer. What caused the Big Bang? I like having an answer, even...

    This. Now, the belief that life originated from aliens or another lifeform is in itself a form a religious belief, just one that falls outside of the current catalogue of deities and origin stories. I would say I've been an atheist most of my life, but I'm veering towards agnosticism lately...

    random MUSIC thoughts

    Bit embarrassed to admit that I am just now discovering Aphex Twin. Some of my high school friends were into this stuff but I dismissed it as inane bleeps and bloops, obsessed as I was with grunge and guitar-based music in general. So I would like to say, 28 years late, that Selected Ambient...

    The Politician S01E01 Not sure about this. Overwhelming first episode. They crammed an entire season's worth of plot points into it, and every character is a dickhead. Anyone venture farther into it?
