It's pretty smooth, and after a few sips I think I can beat Carlsen!
It is the smoothest Vodka I've ever tried. I usually mix with cranberry and pineapple.
Good luck against Magnus...
I do have cranberry juice, and I usually mix my vodka, but someone left this bottle of Goose for me and I just can't bring myself to mixing anything with it
[JOKE ABOUT LIQUOR DELETED THE DAY AFTER UPON REALIZING IT WASN'T FUNNY]
Did everything come out alright? I really hurt myself once drinking straight vodka. I was sick for two days. The heaves were horrible.
Have you ever tried Stolichnaya? If so is it any good? Like better than the "Goose"?
Not scary. Very tense though and some excellent drama from a situation bringing out the best and the worst of humanity. The ending made me cry, as it leaves you in disbelief over what has happened through the lives of the characters.
I liked The Mist too. I'm usually not much for horror flicks, but Stephen King always put a lot more into it and The Mist is a good one.
Right now I'm watching Machine Gun Preacher, as I got interested in it being based on a true story. It's not very good, they rush through and simplify a lot of events which makes it unconvincing and flat, although the actors are doing an ok job with the little they've got to work with. Fun watching Gerard Butler trying to hide his thick Scottish accent doing an American. Fairly good job considering. Gonna watch the rest of it now.
...and after that, well, the movie got a bit better but I still wouldn't recommend it. I read a bit about Sam Childers afterwards, the man the movie portrays, and it seems the movie painted a far to bright picture of Childers. Although he seem to have certainly done many good things for children in Sudan, he's apparently also involved in rather shady matters.
I third that. I enjoyed The Mist. I really like Stephen Kings short stories and novellas, and this novella was quite good. I thought the story translated well to the screen. I often find happy endings cheesy. Sad and indeterminate endings are more difficult to do well. The ending of this movie was particularly striking.
Indeed, the ending was good but it made me all depressed lol
I still am depressed.
Don't be, we have cookies here
Oh, I was fine, thank you. I don't get sick from alcohol, not for quite some time. And yes, stoli is very good, but I prefer Grey Goose
Just watched Searching for Bobby Fisher. I hadn't seen that one before but now I wonder how I could have missed it. Great movie, beautiful story, wonderful acting, just loved it!
My Week with Marilyn (2011)
Most pop culture icons escape my understanding, and Marilyn Monroe is one of them. That said, this is a movie about movie stars and their melodramatic insecurities. Michelle Williams and Kenneth Branaugh were excellent. Beyond those performances, I can't say that I gave a damn about it
There are a couple ratios that pertain to physical attraction in humans that might help explain the attraction to Marilyn Monroe, an attraction I do not share.
One is a low hip to waist ratio. Scientists believe a low hip to waist ratio indicates health and fertility in a woman, and that this excites the reptilian male brain. With all the testosterone that's in there, it doesn't take much. Marilyn had a low hip to waist ratio, but I always found her a little chunky.
There are two ratios that apply to the female face that apply. Men find symmetry to be appealing in women's faces, while both sexes are attracted to a "triangular" configuration with more volume in the forehead area. This ratio is characteristic of infants, and it is thought to have evolved as a mechanism to protect children. This ratio, with it's oversized forehead, is consistent with the ratio of Marilyn's face. Yuck.
Finally, her childlike speech pattern reminds me of a mentally challenged adult. I've often wondered why men find this appealing. On some level, does the fact that she talks like a borderline retard make her seem more obtainable?
Pretty harsh words there, electricpawn, can't say I agree with it.
Public discourse, no need for agreement among all parties.
He can't deal with people making fun of Marilyn Monroe due to a recent family tragedy? Odd response.
