About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Uh, shouldn’t we be talking about what to drink Tuesday night?
    What’s the most appropriate beverage to celebrate the election of the first black President of the United States?

    The founders, almost certainly, would have chosen rum.  Lincoln would have picked up bourbon,  (knob creek claims a connection to ol Abe).  Grant…old crow.
    FDR…also here relevant, National Bohemian or a Martini with extra olives.
    If ya buy into the messiah thing, wine. Preferably that started out as water.
    Maybe ya just throw a flask in the back pocket and ride around your town, soaking in the vibe and the groove and the smiles on people’s faces.

    Personally, I’m thinking simple top shelf.
    Myers Rum.

  2. I like the idea of the Myers but then I have a bias towards rums…

    Maybe something patriotic, ala sam adams?  Or more early/authentic along the lines of some hard cider–George Washington’s favorite??
    Good old fashioned moonshine perhaps. 

    If Obama wins there probably won’t be a lot of smiles in the Republican heavy southern suburbia I currenly call home.  More likely a lot of big frowns in the pervasive big SUVs.
    Which is funny.  Heard someone in the grocery line complaining about how bad their 401(k) was eating it, then went on to lament on how bad it would be if Obama wins. 

    Personally, I am thinking Jack Daniels, just because I haven’t had any in a while and it sounds good.  No special reason.  Definitely some Yuengling, if for no other reason than because I can.

  3. Just a quick note on the “water-to-wine” incident thing:

    I was reading somewhere that it’s more likely that Jesus turned water into beer than wine. At that time, those in the upper class were drinking wine and everyone else was drinking beer. The wedding Jesus was at was a lower-class wedding so it’s more likely that they were drinking beer than they were drinking wine.

    So, this source proposed, that if the liquid they had at the beginning of the night was (incorrectly) translated as “wine” than the water-to-”wine” should actually be water-to-beer.

    …and beer makes me much happier than wine.
