    But wait, there's more, a restaurant can't mix drinks in view of customers, they call it the Zion curtain. They built a super fancy restaurant in salt lake a few years ago that had an upper level kind of a balcony type thing and they had to modify their drink mixing area because people on the balcony could look down and see them mixing drinks.

    HEATHENS!

    The real problem here is "why are they mixing drinks"????? There should never be any mixing of whiskey with anything ever!!! Ice and water are not mixers, but water should never be introduced anyhow!!

    Those that do are the real HEATHENS!!

    That’s insane. Especially coming from Maine, where most bartenders have had a drink or two or smoked a little pot before starting their shift.

    Yep, there are more weird laws like that.

    Wyoming is a money laundering front.
    Utah is a failed experiment in the combination of church and state.

    When it comes to weird, nobody tops Alabama.

    You are not allowed to drink standing up. If you're at the bar and a friend comes in and sits at a table, you aren't allowed to move your drink to the table. You move to the table, but the barmaid has to move your drink.,

    My rules for whisk(e)y drinkers:

    1. you drink what you like out of your glass.
    2. You drink it the way you like it, you bought it and you gotta taste it.

    I actually like a good “Old Fashioned” cocktail in the Fall. I also tend to shift to smokey Scotch, neat in the Fall and Winter. Spring and Summer invite the botanical flavors of gin and tonic or a Speyside or Highland Scotch.

    vodka is nothing without a mixer.

    I need GOOD tequila to drink it neat.

    I do appreciate a well crafted spirit, and think hey should each be tried neat to understand the base flavor notes in them. I understand the appeal and think there are some spirits that deserve to be appreciated by themselves alone. I’m also a flavor chaser, and like to cook and taste, and blend, and build flavor combinations that complement each other.

    I’m not going to take a 18 yr old or older Scotch and use it as a mixer. If I only get one shot to taste it though, I might just take it neat, then add a few drops of water to see what flavors open up in it. I’m not as likely to put ice in it though, as my experience tends to be that the cold tend to close down flavor notes.

    I guess, I’m really saying: “Never say never”. You actually may be missing something.

    I actually popped in here to say, there doesn’t seem to be that much about this object that is that fascinating other than it’s placement.

    I saw close ups of it and could see seams and pop rivets. So I’m thinking “monolith” is a misnomer, and human hands were responsible.

    in re mini pyramids: there was a row of inverted miniature pyramids on a dry lake near where I worked in California. military jets would fly a predetermined path and RADAR them. RADAR techs would calibrate their readout, to make what they got match what was on the ground the next time they flew over.

    most of the cables had popped, and most of hem had flipped upright. I told visitors they were the missing capstones from the Egyptian pyramids.

    in re ice cubes: do not freeze a mentos into an ice cube and serve it in a carbonated drink. that would be bad.

    Depends on if you’re the pourer or the watcher.

    -- tightens foil hat a little --

    The rivets and seams were added in the pictures by government agencies so the public wouldn't get too frightened.

    They are here now, possibly collecting some covid samples to duplicate for taking over other planets.

    The tweakers that have been stealing copper pipe and wiring out of houses to sell for scrap heard about the "monolith". It is now down at Zion Metal Recycling, which paid him $4.90 for it.

    So you think aliens have not yet discovered pop rivet technology?
