  Drink and music? These fucking guys man. Their 1.618 vid still has me giggling like a tard.

>ammo box risers
I've been looking for risers that would offer some doohickey storage space as opening the boxes always ends up moving the monitors about, even with this desk I feel cramped with the 3D mouse so having more useful room under the monitors would be awesome. Plus using the ammo boxes as ammo boxes would be useful, my current ammo boxes are getting a little full.

I'm on the lookout to buy another one, I've polished the caps down quite a bit, I know it won't last forever. I have a spare G400s when they were on sale half price, so getting a spare keyboard would be a good idea.

Mostly because I can't really fucking type on anything else, especially when half a bottle down. I'd rather type on a mechanical but they don't really come in the ergo-ish flavors very often.
>> No. 109269 ID: 13f512

>ergos don't come with mechanical keys

They do, but you get into retarded expensive territory, look at Goldtouch and Kinesis offerings.

Personally, I'm using a microsoft sculpt. Not mechanical, but the keys are acceptable and it has roughly the same angles as the MS4000 but takes up way less desk space.
>> No. 109271 ID: 19518e
I use the numpad often for CAM stuff, but I guess it's an option if I can't reliably find a 4k anywhere. How's the key feel? I got used to this one on Stepmania, it was a godsend in 3k+ arrow song marathons.

>100 bucks for the sculpt

[grumbling intensifies]
>> No. 109272 ID: 13f512

You can definitely get a new 4000, I buy them all the time for da gubmnent. Let me know if you can't source one.

Sculpt keys are good (for not mechanical switches) and there is a numpad, it's just detached. I find that useful as I can hold it in my hand like a calculator - which lends itself well to accounting, but maybe not your application. You should be able to get one for about $60 USD.

Though expensive as shit, one product you might look at is the Kinesis Maxim. It probably has more adjustability than you need, but it does have mechanical keys.

Honestly despite the burgeoning number of "ergo" keyboards around, the MS4000 got it right the first time for like 90% of users. If you need more aggressive tenting, there is the Goldtouch or Kinesis Freestyle2 w/ VIP3 accessory, but those are drastic overkill for people without fairly extensive dexterity limitations.

God damn it this was supposed to be about booze, not ergonomics.
>> No. 109274 ID: 19518e
I did almost have an ergo mech on order, but it was back when I was eating very little to pay rent and decided the 200 hockey gil required to buy the thing was best used preventing scurvy and stuff.

Since then I did gain back a bit on the waistband but I didn't lose the perspective of what our currency, every dwindling in value, was compared to the slight difference of key feel between an ergo4k and a fancy shmancy ergonomic mechanical.

Back on the booze then. Fuck I haven't had a drink in a long time, because of aforementioned purchasing power or lack thereof. Broke out the bottle because it looked lonely and forgotten, figured I should give it attention.

Alcohol is just too expensive when considering the price of ammo these days. Damn priorities getting in the way of my liver cirrhosis plans...

My wife goes to sleep around 8 or 8:30 at home, and it turns out that celebrating our anniversary on The Strip is no different. So after she dozed off, I went for a walk around. Last night, for $48, I had a diminutive glass of a 30 year old port at Zefferino at The Venetian. It was wonderful. I didn't eat at the Italian restaurant upstairs (though I'm sure it is delicious, if the brushetta I sampled is any indication); Instead, I was the lone customer at a long, empty, beautiful bar. Pretty classy way to end three dry weeks. I talked the bartender's ear off, and tipped her $20. Had a Bellini with breakfast at Bouchon this morning.

I've had that. Ordered it on impulse at a Rogue pub here in Portland.

It wasn't bad. Really different, and you could definitely feel the heat. Probably wouldn't drink it on the regular but it was decent enough that I might order it again if I felt like something different.

Now the Rogue Voodoo Donut Bacon Maple Bar beer...that was a trainwreck. BURNT, not smokey, full on burnt bacon flavor and very underwhelming maple notes. All of which just didn't mesh with beer flavoring. Although reading reviews now...It would appear there's some major inconsistency with the stuff in regards to how strong the bacon and maple flavors are. Either way...pass.

As for me...I'm a cider guy these days. Went to a tasting a couple weeks ago and left with a few bottles of pic related. Goddamn that stuff goes down easy. Not too strong, not too sweet, very drinkable.

I tried garlic vodka and it was actually good. It did not have a slight garlic taste like how many flavored vodkas just have a weak, barely noticeable taste. It was like a strong garlic extract. Something they should serve at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, if they want to get everyone annihilated.

Garlic vodka can be made by adding garlic to the fermented grains and distilled (so I have heard) or by adding cloves of garlic to a bottle of vodka, shake well, infuse for 3 days, strain and pour into another bottle.
>> No. 109423 ID: 09c7e0
extracting flavors into ethanol is the first step to making really tasty and fantastically potent hash oil or other botanical extracts. if you wanted to make the ultimate garlic vodka what you would want to do would be to extract the flavor from the garlic using Everclear 190º and then mix the 190º down to 80º for drinking. ethanol extracts much, much more efficiently when it has less water mixed into it. 80º will generally extract 5%-10% of what 190º will do.

now, if you wanted to extract say about 30g of minced garlic into about 100ml of 190º Everclear in subzero conditions and then pour the strained alcohol onto a clean pyrex pie plate and blow a fan over it for a few hours until all the fluid has evaporated and then scrape up the residue with a razor blade, then you would be left with a purified form of garlic in the range of 75% purity. all of the plant fiber would be gone all of the water content would be left behind in strainer.

Dunno how this would work for you, but something that's good is bitters and soda water.

If you really want to keep yourself kosher, most of the Fee Brothers bitters are alcohol free. It hits the spot for me a lot, especially at work.

Invented a cocktail in honor of my wife and to mark 3 years of marriage.

2oz Blackstrap rum
1/2oz Cherry Heering
1/2oz Kahlua

"Da Hooch"

Its a concoction my best friend and I came up with back during my college days.

You take a big glass and fill it 2/3 of the way with cold half & half, and then add a bunch of Hershy's syrup to make it into thick chocolate milk. Then fill the rest of the glass up with good cherry brandy and stir. It tastes like cherry cordial candy, but in liquid form and makes for a great wind-down after dinner.

This tariff bullshit has gone too far! Now tariffs on French wine!
US President Donald Trump has lashed out at France in a series of tweets on Tuesday, accusing the country of charging “big tariffs” on US wine imports. But, unlike his previous attacks on high Canadian dairy tariffs, he didn’t provide any details about exactly how high these tariffs truly are. Perhaps that’s because the tariffs are really quite low.

“France makes it very hard for the U.S. to sell its wines into France, and charges big Tariffs, whereas the U.S. makes it easy for French wines, and charges very small Tariffs. Not fair, must change!” he said.

In fact, the European Union — a bloc which includes France and 27 other nations — is in charge of setting tariffs, and it levies very modest tariffs on imported wine. A typical 750ml bottle of wine from the US would face tariffs at the border of just a few cents, according to the European Commission’s online tariff database. Sparkling wine faces some of the highest tariffs, but it’s below 20 cents per average bottle. The US association representing American wineries, WineAmerica, was quick to respond to Trump’s concerns, but said the issue wasn’t worth a fight, noting the EU tariffs were only modestly higher than comparable American tariffs.

“The US charges 5 to 14 cents a standard bottle on EU wine … The EU charges 11 to 29 cents a bottle on American wine. So there is a slight disparity. However, not the level that the President seems to imply here,” said Michael Kaiser, vice president at the WineAmerica. “We would support a trade agreement that would make the tariffs more equal, however we don’t want to see this lead to another trade war like we are seeing with China.” https://uk.sports.yahoo.com/news/trump-slams-french-wine-tariffs-theyre-already-really-low-162922119.html

Sacré bleu! Time to load up on French favorites like Chateau Mouton Rothschild Bordeaux, Dom Perignon Brut Champagne, Petrus Merlot, Mouton-Cadet Bordeaux, Saint-Émilion Grand Cru, and other Champagne (prestige Cuvée and affordable non-vintage Cuvées) from famous houses such as Moët & Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, Bollinger, Louis Roederer, Taittinger, and Laurent-Perrier. Get 'em before Trump tacks on his tedious tantrum tariffs on 'em.

Occasionally I buy Champagne (or sparkling wine or low-priced Spanish cava) for my parents, usually domestic Korbel Brut or Natural Champagne from California, but today I splurged on the expensive French stuff like the above mentioned and the pictured Perrier Jouet.

  Donald Trump ramped up his spat with Emmanuel Macron, the French president, with an active day on Twitter. Stephen Colbert read and commented on the tweets — disputing Kim's missiles, defending his widely mocked decision to skip a World War I memorial in France due to rain, and several attacks on French President Emmanuel Macron, one of which included a threat to raise tariffs on French wines. "Aren't you losing support with suburban white women?" Colbert asked. "Maybe now's not the time to come after wine. What's next? Banning book clubs and Nancy Meyers movies?"

The most popular spirit in Mexico is not tequila or mezcal, but brandy. Particularly this bottle right here. It is definitely a working man's drink at $14 for a 750ml. The initial flavor says "sweet" and the aftertaste says "young", but it's pleasant enough on the rocks. I'll try it with tonic tomorrow.
