    What's the most you'd ever pay for a cocktail?

    I along with the people I personally know don't get drunk. A drink could be a cocktail or a glass of wine. A bottle of 1945 Chateau Mouton-Rothschild Jeroboam sold at Christie’s auction for $114,614. A bottle of Macallan Malt Whisky distilled in 1926 costs $38,000. Some fine dining...

    What's the most you'd ever pay for a cocktail?

    I live in a very affluent area and cocktails are always darn good to drink:biggrin: and fairly expensive. A good majority of the restaurants have a "Happy Hour" that makes it possible to buy a alcoholic drink for half the price. Here's a little secret, you can buy as many drinks as you want...

    Whats more economical, filling pot with hot water, or cold, to boil water?

    Aitimony solder was used on the copper pipes.:smile: It doesn't contain lead. I don't live in a home with lead joints. Yes, it is my house that I own.:smile: I also have a hot water dispenser attached to my kitchen sink. It's especially nice when I want a cup of hot tea. Thanks. I must...

    My house has copper piping so I'm safe to use the hot water coming out of the kitchen sink when I cook. :smile:

    Are you a vegetarian?

    NO the injuries aren't healed quite yet, I sprained both ankles. It takes a while to heal. The dog is a 70 plus pound puppy. Yes, the music remains since I've been to many concerts throughout my lifetime. I personally know many musicians and went to oodles of concerts. Lucky me got to go...

    4th May NL memorial day WW-II

    My ex-husband was in the Navy. A Vietnam vet. So I know a lot of Vietnam vets. Also, saw a ton of rock concerts while in California and stood at the shores in San Francisco when Joan Baez took off on a boat to Alcatraz singing her songs against the war. I saw and heard and so did my friends...

    4th May NL memorial day WW-II

    I'm not denying PTSD isn't real. What exactly do you agree with in the U-Tube Video that you know to be true? Are you agreeing with Zooby's statement, "For soldiers, the trauma starts in boot camp, before they ever see any battles." Do you think that ALL soldiers will agree with his...

    4th May NL memorial day WW-II

    The U-Tube video states "Scene from Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket (1987), novel by Gustav Hasford" and it is a fiction novel. I have a few friends in the military and don't think they *need* enemies. To make a statement "For soldiers, the trauma starts in boot camp, before they ever see...

    Near Death Experience: theoretical implications contingent upon validity of claim?

    Well, Zooby gave me the impression that it was from wiki. :biggrin: The main issue is that Zooby should know better than to give us an article from 1988.

    Near Death Experience: theoretical implications contingent upon validity of claim?

    The Wiki article you presented was from Neurology. 1988 Sep;38(9):1347-52. Clinical and electroencephalographic features of simple partial seizures. Devinsky O, Kelley K, Porter RJ, Theodore WH. Source: Medical Neurology Branch, NINCDS, Bethesda, MD 20892. This article I'm going to present...

    4th May NL memorial day WW-II

    I think it best for you to explain yourself. Making a sweeping generalization such as, " But I reject the premise of "in the face of threats". I think these actions are more about more about psychopathic and/or sociopathic power trips. Once so engaged, yes of course one is going to make...

    Duh! The event happened because Japan attacked the United States of America! We fought back! And foremost above all else, my father didn't die during the attack at Pearl Harbor even though he was there. Fortunately, I derive pleasure in the memory of my father!:biggrin: If someone breaks...

    I wasn't born during World War II, but my father was at Pearl Harbor when the bombs hit. He was in charge of the Electrical Engineering shops. My mother told me that he called home and told her not to worry. :smile: She said the sky turned black in an instant. Thank you Andre for remembering...

    News Tennessee to teach the controversy

    I would like add a tad more to this topic. It saddens and bothers me to think that there are people in Tennessee and elsewhere who want to 'teach the controversy'. Once again as an American I went looking for support of evolution in an attempt to help those who want to 'teach the...

    Why is the world scarier at night?

    Yeah, and that event happened in the afternoon.:eek: I learned early on after that event to always lock my front door once I got into the house even though I live in a very affluent area. Infact, just the other day a man posed as a PGE guy and thank goodness there was a neighbor who saw him...

    The forests' I have been talking about are remote locations that are far away from civilization.:smile: Also, I had an experience long ago in my 20's when I too lived in a very well to do community. I opened the front door and proceeded to head to the kitchen then I turned around to look back...
