- Smarter than the Average Bear
- Almost a dozen friends forwarded me the same news story. It seems that Washington (the U.S. state) fish and wildlife agents recently came across a very drunk black bear; he was comatose at Baker Lake Resort. It turns out that the bear in question drank some thirty-six cans of Rainier Ale.
The bear chewed and clawed his way into campers coolers, then punctured the Rainier Ale cans. Now heres the good part: the bear didnt touch the other brands of beer.
At first, I was chuffed to see that another mammal shared by discerning taste in sophisticated adult beverages. Upon reflection, though, I realized that when Im out in the woods, the bear will be after my cans. Perhaps its time to switch to whisky.

- Sons of Satin
- Lux told me about an amazing piece she saw in Golden Gate Park. The work in question was a complex painting of satanic imagery: sacrificial animals, pentagrams, flames, that sort of thing. The coupe de grass was the signature: Sons of Satin.
Stupidity is always amazing (thanks Jean!), and typos are truly evil.

- German Climate Inquiry
- Gretchen called, chatted for a bit, then asked me about the weather.
The weather? I asked. I have no idea about the outside, I havent seen daylight yet.
But its late in the afternoon there, Gretchen protested from Berlin.
I have plenty of Rainier Ale and wine here, why do you think Id leave my laboratory on a Tuesday before dark? I replied.
Gretchen huffed a Teutonic huff.

- Cellar and Belly are One
- I just received a commercial proposition, Storage options for your wine collection.
Thats preposterous! My wine cellar and my belly are as one.

- Concurrent and Sequential Recreational Drugs
- I got a message from Samantha insisting that I must fly to Toronto tomorrow.
I discovered coffee beer, Samantha enthused, our two favorite drugs in one glass!
I did a quick Internet search and discovered that Mill Street Coffee Porter is purportedly, rich and robust, dark brown in colour with a dark roasted coffee nose, imparting an intense coffee flavour with notes of chocolate.
Coffee beer sounds like a big mistake, Even though I enjoy combining recreational drugswho wouldntI nevertheless feel caffeine and alcohol are delights best enjoyed sequentially.
