Does alcohol go bad? I have a couple bottles of Gin (those mentioned above) that probably have a total of three drinks poured out of them that are at least 7 years old. Years ago I full stocked my bar, and I pretty don't drink 80% of what I have.

Depends on who you ask. I'm sure beans will have the correct answer.

OH, hey, VB...I was at a "party" this weekend and got to talking to a dude who works at USC. He does shit with helping people get over PTSD using virtual reality and stuff. He also is doing some project with a reporter friend where they recreated an incident at some food bank using "second life" and motion capture to create some immersive scene that got accepted into Sundance. I think his name was Bradley or something. You or your wife know him? I thought about asking if he knew you but didn't feel like explaining why I would know you, etc.

Beer won't last long at room temp and higher. Wine eventually turns to vinegar if the cork dries outThe rest depends on the sugar content. Stuff like moonshine and shnapps turn to syrup... Quicker if openedBourbon would prob last an eternity. I have a fairly large collection of the stuff my uncle bought before I was born. Still take a whang of it from time to time. Forty year old cheap stuff tastes better than the single barrel of todayJust don't ever drink anything from the proabition era... It turns into some sort of shellac that's deadly. Being distilled with car radiators and such does thatI could share much more but I hate pecking on this phone

I had this idea just now in the showerI can't browse FCP at work, and I always have stuff to say about the hundreds of business news articles I read per day, but I never put in the effort to find the articles again after I get home. so, let's harness this at-work work ethic and get an old fashioned proxy going with a post in the politics forum like "emails from strategy"PM me your email if you want to do it

I've been meaning to mention it for a while now; this season has been pretty disappointing to me so far, but this episode was one of their best ever. It hit a little close to home though.
there were no special effects, no special effects.

It's going to be near impossible for them to ever make anohtpther episode as good as the Christmas episode or the gang buys a boat episode, so this whole season has been a step down from the last two seasons. I think I might have actually disliked the class reunion episodes, which might be a first for me. I can't remember actively disliking any episode in a previous season.

I've finished the first 4 so far, and the main thing I've noticed is that something seems to be "off" with the directing. like the lighting is different, or they're using more camera angles, something. it doesn't "feel" the same. they've also gotten a lot more outrageous with the story lines (the jersey shore one). I mean, it's still hilarious, but I feel like they need to get back to basics or something, keep it simple you know?and speedz, I'll look for that but I don't think I've ever seen it before. doubt they'll have it at our liquor store. might have to go to the big city to find it.

I also actively disliked the re:union episode. I may be in the minority, but I was never that crazy about the Christmas special.

I find there to be a bigger jump in noticable quality from $10 to $25 than from $25 to $100.
If you talk to winemakers who actually make wine they'll tell you it's pretty much impossible to make a bottle of wine for less than $20 unless you resort to using chemicals, cheating the process, using low-quality grapes and yeast, etc.

Nah, it's more like the jump from $200 to $500. An '82 Chateau Beausejour Becot will change your fucking life, whereas e.g. an '03 Bellevue Mondotte St Emilion will seem pedestrian by comparison.

do you mean the original nightman/dayman episode (i.e. dee dates a retarded person) or the one with the play? my very favorites are the original dayman episode and the full on rapist scene. that scene alone is probably the funniest thing I've ever seen in anything.

If you're looking for some evidence of $10 wine sucking ass relative to $25 wine, find a bottle of Burgess Cab or Ransom Pinot and compare to appropriate $10 stuff. Both have decent enough distribution that you should be able to find them at any place with a good wine selection.
