  1. You say protectionism like it is something bad, like lutheranism.

  2. Does beer need a case made for it?

  3. Is there any non-toxic product demonized more than bottled water?

  4. On a only very slightly related note – I used to point out in zoning related threads how I would like a pub on my street. Well, Im not getting that. However, the 2nd best beer bar in the Louisville metro area (which like the first, is not actually located in Louisville at all) is moving to staggering distance from my home. Admittedly, I will have to stagger 2 blocks along a major highway (US 60), but sidewalks are being put in right now, so it will be a relatively safe stagger.

  5. SugarFree,

    Dude, you can drown in that stuff, it is clearly toxic. Is is also the major component of acid rain.

  6. I could use a case of beer.

  7. the 2nd best beer bar in the Louisville metro area (which like the first, is not actually located in Louisville at all)

    Tease. Tell us the names, yo.

  8. Does beer need a case made for it?

    If you have 24 of them, yes.

  9. SugarFree,

    Rich O’s, or New Albanian or whatever you want to call it is clearly #1. Duh. In New Albany, IN obviously.

    Sergio’s in Shelbyville is the one moving. Moving to Middletown, which is lacking in non-chain restaurants and decent beer bars.

  10. Epi,

    Thanks. I was wondering who I was playing straight man for with that post.

  11. Peter Neumann, head of the ICSR . . . told Reuters that Internet Service Providers could do more to deal with users’ complaints about extremist material, and governments would regulate if the ISPs failed to bring in a system to better police content.

    Because, although it is ineffective to try to manage internet speech, that’s STILL no reason for governments to avoid trying to “police content” for “extremist material”, simply because some people are disturbed by it.

    And what extremist material beside Islam O’Fashism is out there and equally used on the web?

    While most of the focus has been on al Qaeda-inspired Islamist militants, far-right white supremacist sites are equally as popular, the report found.

    Sorry to indulge certain trolls but how long until they will be able to “police content” of Ron Paul on that basis? Or critics of federal law enforcement?

  12. “This movie was filmed in 3-B. Three beers and it looks good, eh.”

  13. Oh, never heard of the first one. Indiana makes me break out in hives.

    I’ve heard of Sergio’s but I’ve never been there. I didn’t really live there long enough to suss the city totally out. I hated living in Louisville, but that wasn’t Louisville’s fault.

  14. Sergio’s in Shelbyville is the one moving

    I won’t make the inevitable Duff joke, but someone should.

  15. Does beer need a case made for it?

    One that holds more bottles please.

  16. Sergio’s in Shelbyville is the one moving
    I won’t make the inevitable Duff joke, but someone should.

    I believe Shelbyville’s beer of choice was Fudd, IIRC…

  17. Water? Fish fuck in it.

  18. Fudd Beer
    From Wikisimpsons

    Fudd Beer is the main beer used in Shelbyville and Spittle County. It is the chief competitor of Duff Beer which is intentionally spelled with a parallel swapping of the consonants. Homer became aware of Fudd Beer while patronizing a “redneck bar” in nearby Spittle County. It was later revealed to be considered very popular in Springfield’s rival town of Shelbyville. Moe said he thought it had been banned “after all those hillbillies went blind”.

    “Sweat actually cleans this suit!”

  19. Regardless, the equity comes from TARP, and Elizabeth Warren of the Congressional Oversight Panel is no slouch. What will happen when she asks for reports of how the actions have gone (for instance, how many failed because the reserve was not met?)

    She’ll most likely “declare victory” and leave her position on the Oversight Panel to spend more time with her family.

  20. “This movie was filmed in 3-B. Three beers and it looks good, eh.”

    You want to know how to WRECK a movie, eh? Take a jar of months into the theater, eh and let .. and then like uh release them at a point in the movie when you know what’s going to happen, eh and then all of the moths will fly up to the projection booth window and cloud it up and you can demand your money back.
