RufusScorpius: the Roman Emperor laughs from his capital in Byzantium..... Jun 2, 2020 14:34:21 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: "I defeated Rome!" (Geiserich's Latin was questionable) ((June 2nd 455 AD, sack of Rome by the Vandals)) :D Jun 2, 2020 14:05:49 GMT *
Dandelion: ROMA VICTRIX! Jun 2, 2020 13:03:05 GMT
RufusScorpius: Probably, but the Romans, quite naturally, perfected it! Jun 1, 2020 19:42:03 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: The Greek? Didn't they invent the whole barbarian thing? Jun 1, 2020 18:01:20 GMT *
RufusScorpius: Us Romans can teach the barbarians a few things about barbarism.... (rofl) Where do you think they learned it from? Jun 1, 2020 17:27:33 GMT *
AndiTheBarvarian: Sounds barbaric! Jun 1, 2020 13:20:33 GMT
RufusScorpius: Man up and throw down some Mad Dog 20/20, Red White and Blue beer, and follow it with some Aftershock. See ya in the mornin' Mr. Nottyhead..... Jun 1, 2020 11:22:21 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: The London N°1 is my Romulan ale, it's blue, tastes a bit flowery. May 31, 2020 17:26:42 GMT *
AndiTheBarvarian: It's one of the two best gins I know, Gin Sul is similar. 1 ice cube and they turn white, full of essential oils. May 31, 2020 17:24:08 GMT
Dandelion: The "Monkey 47" is quite famous by now... May 31, 2020 16:41:56 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: I know both, not bad but I like some other gins better. May 31, 2020 10:10:50 GMT *
Dandelion: Hey, Andi... excuse for "ginning in" ;-) Try these two, from "just around the corner", out of the Black Forest: google "Boar" and "Needle" dry gin! May 31, 2020 9:25:11 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Yeah, I remember it's a good one too, just forgot the name. May 31, 2020 5:00:08 GMT *
ouroboros: Canadian Gin I like is Ungava ... nice flavors May 31, 2020 3:46:15 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Monkey 47 or Gin Sul from Germany, The London N°1 (really blue!) I'm not a fan of London Dry Gin, less herb flavour. May 30, 2020 16:03:13 GMT *
taylorac: Sounds like a good way to get into gin -- any brand recommendations? May 30, 2020 14:48:28 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: You don't know German modern style gin, clean spirit with a lot of tasty and healthy herbs. You'll never mix it with anything, just a few ice cubes. May 29, 2020 21:53:58 GMT
christain: Gin sucks, Andi. Get yourself a bottle of good Vodca. You can mix it with anything. A good Bloody Mary is the BEST on Earth. :P May 29, 2020 21:46:04 GMT
christain: I'm so sick that I feel death would be a proper alternative. Not Conid virus...just crappy-feeling. (puke) Maybe I'll have a beer and feel better. :D May 29, 2020 21:36:48 GMT
