Brian Gilmartin replied to Stephen Jashub Comstock's discussion What beer do you drink most regularly?
"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…"

"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)."

Brian Gilmartin replied to GV's discussion Swim wear questions
"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…"

Brian Gilmartin replied to GV's discussion Distressed Jeans
"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…"

Quote
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.

So Long Men's Barbers

In my modest little town of 12,000, which has 22,000+ when college is in session, we have two barbers. One is mostly retired and the other can hardly stand up half a day.The State of Illinois saw to it to regulate barbers and hairdressers. Excuse me... cosmetologists. A man, or woman, wanting to be just a barber cannot. They have to go to cosmetology school. That is an expensive school.

Any advice for a clogged bathroom sink?

Hey all - The sink in my bathroom clogs from time to time. Usually it's no big deal and I just have to pop off the trap and pull out a hairball or what have you from one of the sections.This time I've popped off all the plumbing underneath to dig in with an auger, but it's not doing anything. A look with the flashlight showed a caked-on, black, gunky mess two or three feet into the drain pipe; the auger won't budge it.
