"Used to be Guinness Draught. Recently I have had go-to breweries not beers.
Ommegang is from upstate NY, and I can't get enough. If I had to pick one it would be their "Three-Philosophers Ale" it's a Belgian Quadruple…"
"If he doesn't get too much taller I wouldn't really sweat it. Many people seem to over value the height issue in cars. I honestly think most men say they need a big car cause they wanted a big car, and they're tall so…"
"Can I be George Bailey? I'd like to be George Bailey.
But if we're sticking with fantastical extremes, I'm a Captain America man myself(he is sort of George Bailey with superpowers... think about it)."
"The only telemarketers that I have encountered who don't take you off of their list are the ones running a scam. Next time, answer the phone play like your interested and get some info on whomever is calling you. If they seem…"
"As far as the cigarettes go, lose them. There are other ways to get nicotine. Even if you chew a million packs of nicotine gum, or use chewing tobacco or "pack lip"(all of the tobacco options still have cancer risks), at least you…"
"I have worked as a lifeguard for 7 years(last day is today actually), and the one thing I will definitely say is, do not get board shorts if you have any intention of actually swimming. My favorite suite is a pair of swimming…"
"I generally avoid ripped jeans, and I would never recommend buying a pair of ripped jeans. If they are an old pair of jeans that you happened to have ripped, I would wear them to something that will have an activity, a bar-b-que where you know…"

I tend to prefer alternative rock, but I like at least one artist from every genre. I'd say Alt-Rock, Rock, Blues, and Funk would be my top four.
The Black Keys
Aerosmith(Particularly the Album Honkin' on Bobo)
There are way too many great quotes to pick just one. I'm somewhat of a quote collector, and I pull them out all the time. For some reason, when the great Men and Women of History say something people give it more attention. But there is one quote I use the most. I might even say it's my favorite.
A stopped clock is right twice a day.

""Jewish person": one modern wordsmithing technique is to emphasize the person not the grouping. Jewish person, not Jew; person with Down syndrome, not Mongoloid; child with special needs, not cripple (ack). It's hard for me to see a…"
"Yeah I understand it, just wanted to point out that semantic shifts have happened with the Jewish race as well. Also, it's probably more justified than the other shifts for the reasons you mentioned, except for maybe the word negro."
"And that's totally understandable. But that doesn't mean you may not be subject to social repercussions, even if misguided. Buck the system all you want, but it is much more likely to hurt you, than the system. I choose to pick my battles…"
"It has to do with how it is used.
A non-jewish person saying "Oh, you know Peter, he's a real Jew..." often carries some negative connotations. The way the term has been used by some, nearly puts in in a pejorative category -…"
"Censoring, in some cases, is a strong word. But it is a strong word when it applies to political correctness as well. At the least, those fixated on being PC will shut you out or label you for using the word that isn't "in," or…"
