"However the disease finally got to her and she fell fatally ill. In the Sick Bay as she breathed her last, she was surrounded by Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, Dr. McCoy, and Mr. Scott, all weeping unashamedly at the loss of her beautiful youth and youthful beauty, intelligence, capability and all around niceness. Even to this day her birthday is a national holiday of the Enterprise."

Radlers and shandies are both things over here. They're the rebranding of wine coolers.

Miller discovered they owned an old, underperforming brewery by the name of Leinenkugel (which, amusingly, had previously purchased Blatz) so they made them produce "summer shandy." It's fuckin' Bartles & Jaymes minus the food coloring.

Well that's fucking depressing.

everything old is new again

Compare and contrast: CPM comes from traditional advertising - web guys call it 'cost per click' because there is no Nielsen verification but CPM for broadcast network television in the United States is between $15 and $30. Reddit's ads are paltry cheap by comparison, probably because they're thunderously ineffective. I can't remember who calculated it but the click rate on banner ads is like 0.06%, and it's estimated that half of that number is accidental.

But then, that's what you get when you aren't targeting for shit. If I buy Facebook ads I can target college-educated women between 25 and 35 within a 5-mile radius of my business. My CPM is closer to $10. Or I can go Yelp - I can target people searching for "midwife" and pay $10 per click.

And neither f'n one of them are half as effective as a little SEO 101. The economics of the Internet 101 right there: 4 hours following Google's guides on page rank are more effective for my business than a years' worth of Facebook ads at $200 a month... and that 4 hours is about as effective as a big fuckin' sign on the corner.

undrinkable mead is great for cooking with.

It's entirely possible. That said, my roommate cannot fathom the creation of coffee without invoking Folger's Crystals and he's watched me and our other roommate make coffee no less than four different ways.

Not all consumers are producers.

Dude Bellingham has two different mead labels.

Prolly hella easier to find in Seattle. The Greek community up there is substantial while the Greek community in LA is actually Armenian.

Hey, now! Mezcal is to tequila what brandy is to cognac - it's a less restrictive appellation which means you get a much broader spectrum of flavor.

Of course across most of the US the only one you can get is Monte Alban so it's kind of like comparing every cognac available to like B&B, except with a worm in it for some reason.
