Re: Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy

I just had the sad experience of getting some bottles of beer that had been imported from Belgium (to the US), and several of them tasted like their metal bottlecaps. One of these was a Piraat Ale, plus others from the same brewery. I've noticed this with a couple other beers in the past, too. By wh...

Re: Favorite Place to Get a Burger?

My favorite place is my own kitchen. I pan-fry my floured burgers in butter, and mix Worcestershire sauce, finely diced onion, and bacon into the beef, topped with chevre and caramelized onion on a simple potato bun. If I'm out and about, I'm in the Five Guys camp. There are a bunch of them around t...

Re: Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy

Couldn't help but notice only one Leviathan made the list, though. No love for the Baltic Porter? I was fortunate enough to be the only person at a tasting at the Harpoon brewery, and I got to try 9 of their beers there, but only one was a Leviathan. Their beers averaged a low enough rating that I ...

Re: Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy

Has anyone here tried the Sam Adams Imperial Stout? My wife and I gave the Sam Adams Imperial Stout our second lowest rating out of 303 beers we've tried. It was way too sweet, and so disgusting that I could not finish my half. Their Imperial White is only slightly less gross. We generally love Sam...

Re: Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy

It's nice to see so many people with good taste! I could not stand the smell of beer until I was fortunate enough to live in PA and get exposed to Yuengling. Then I only drank Yuengling for years until a bunch of my friends had a contest to see who could drink 365 different beers in one year, and I ...

Re: What am I supposed to do with *this*?

I have five eggs in my fridge and no faith in my own cooking skills. I rarely cook, and bought six eggs so that I could use one to make pancakes, because that's the smallest number which sells in supermarkets. I also have a small amount of milk and plenty of flour; however, I'm not sure if all of t...

Re: Who am I?

First, I noticed that the solution could be both 2 digits and 3 digits, so it must either be a 2-digit square or a 3-digit even number. From there I determined that it must contain a 7. Then I made a list of multiples of 11 3-digits long with 7s in them (only 9 numbers), cubes+1, and square...

Re: What langauge do deaf people think in?

A typical deaf person in a first-world country will still be literate, and constantly subjected to the written language(s) of their culture, which have more nuance than SL. I started to learn some ASL when I worked with autistic children, and was interested to note how much information is left out i...

Re: Reading test for 6 year olds to include non-words

Such a test is nothing new. I have administered such a test to kids, and I think they've existed for decades in the US to test how well kids are learning phonics. Since phonics has been proven to be such an effective way of teaching kids to read, it is reasonable to teach with phonics and use tests ...

Re: I need a Game Recommendation

I'm probably just describing a game that doesn't and won't ever exist, but I've got to give it a try anyway: I'm looking for a game I can casually play every day or every other day for small amounts of time (30-120 minutes). I don't have a preference on genre but I'd like if it was multiplayer and ...

Re: World of Darkness Dice and Probability

Caesar's equation is correct, and illustrates the huge amount of work necessary for calculating each probability of an outcome. I started to calculate each possible (within reason) outcome for up to ten dice, but eventually cheated and used averages of tens of thousands of generated rolls in Excel t...
