I've been ordering an online newspaper but opted for a paper one this year. I think I need to start getting up earlier so that I get to read it before going to work. I like the idea of having slow mornings with a proper newspaper and a cup of coffee.
I deliver our local paper to a shrinking number of homes in the wee morning hours. I don't have any customers under 50 and would guess the average at about 75. Too bad you live outside my delivery territory  :D!
I wouldn't be anyhow suprised if  customers of this paper would be around same age. It's in Swedish and I assume Swedish-speaking youngsters here either don't read newspapers or read Finnish ones instead.

Just read some rather unpleasant news about my old/former father confessor on Facebook (before I became Orthodox). It makes me upset to see how they treat him. Lord have mercy!
I'm sorry to hear that :(
So am I. I will keep him in my prayers.

I could use the wisdom of Mor Ephrem at the moment.  I'm debating a 20 year old hyper-nationalist Greek friend of mine about Greece/Turkey relations.  Mor impart your wisdom unto me....

I'm not Mor, but may I say this: Save your breath and your energy. You have as much chance of swaying your friend as it is possible to convince a 15-year-old girl who smokes to keep her weight down to quit.  :p

I actually convinced an entire high school locker room to quit smoking marijuana when I told them that it kills sperm (although it probably doesn't). For some reason they actually believed me and took me seriously since I had a reputation as the unwavering straight edge. This was sophomore year, before I transferred to independent study.

High school boys aren't particularly bright.  The rumor that the dye yellow 5 killed sperm and made you impotent had boys swear off Mountain Dew for a while.

She posted a image showing Kemal Ataturk's house in immaculate condition and Pavlos Melas' house outside of Athens in ruins.  She's not happy about the recent election results in Greece and thinks the world is anti-Hellenic.  You're right in that it's a Sisyphean effort to try to convince my friend otherwise.  :)

No one told you that their doctor said it was OK to smoke marijuana?

You mean the taste of Mountain Spew wasn't enough to put them off?  ;D

I don't know about those boys now, but for me, with vodka all things are possible...even being able to down Mountain Dew.

The news reporter said that virgin passengers are stranded at JFK.  How rude to reveal that!  As if people have to know they're virgins.

The only thing ignoble about vodka is the hangover if one overindulges. Though it's not as bad as ouzo hangovers, or, by a very long stretch, Chinese rice spirit. That's in a seriously ignoble class of its own.  :eek: :eek: :p

Phooey on all of you. Rum is better than all the swill you folks are discussing.
Nothing like good Pennsylvania rum.
I like my rum like I like my women. Imported, mature and with long legs.
Rums mature from 3 to 5 years.  So in lady years, what?  21-35?  (Yes, I just applied the dog year rule to rum)

Excellent calculations, sir! I don't care what everyone else around her says about you; you are NOT as dumb as you look.

Luckily I didn't buy any oil futures yesterday like I wanted to. Brent crude is down yet again today. When will we finally see the bottom?

Cognac hangovers are far more deadly.

In my experience gin is the worst. Stick to one Martini or you'll regret it later.

People are getting wasted by drinking cognac?  ??? I've always assumed that cognac is something for fancier occasions.

I bought Georgian brandy few days ago. Haven't opened the bottle yet though. Probably will during this weekend as a friend is coming to visit.

That discussion about Greece on social media earlier today with my hyper-nationalist friend ... she deleted all postings except for the image that started the conversation.  :-\

Nope. I've been ironed out on cognac before, but the Chinese spirit was unbelievably bad. The better part of three days of feeling like complete crap, to put it mildly. The perils of not wishing to offend generous Chinese hosts and their abundant hospitality ....

All I'm looking for is frankincense essential oil that is not made by New Age hippies.  Why is this so hard?

I have no money for stocks.  But I do like oil prices at the gas station.

I can say from experience that it does cause hangovers, and some nasty ones at that.  I'm not sure if it is more likely to or not, but it goes down easier so more can be consumed.  One time I mixed it with red bull, and half the bottle was gone before I knew what had happened.

The worst three hangovers I have ever had.

1- The majority of a bottle of Captain Morgan spiced rum.  This was my first ever hangover.  I spent Sunday morning praying at the porcelain altar.  Sadly, as the next two stories will show, I learned nothing from this experience.

2- Rumpleminz.  I was in college and a friend and I were chilling, and had just drank the only two beers. I was in a drinking mood and there was this bottle of Rumpleminz in the freezer. I decided that it's continued undrank existence was an affront to me personally, and affront that could only be assuaged by drinking it.  Now, this was no ordinary bottle of Rumpleminz.  My dad bought it, took a few swigs, and put it in the freezer.  He did this several years prior to the terrible events that follow.  In the intervening time, the water had frozen solid and thus all that was left was pepperminty alcohol.  The next day I had no hangover...the day after that though, I got down on my knees at the porcelain altar and begged for forgiveness.

3- This one was just a year or two ago (remember how I said I had learned nothing from previous experiences?).  I was drinking with a couple of night shifters (on a work night for me) and by 1 or 2 AM we had reached a point of such utter depravity that we thought it a good idea to make shots with the express purpose of horrifying the other revelers, who by this point were too drunk to give in to their entirely understandable misgivings.  My brother poured a shot (or maybe it was a triple) of Evan Williams because the friend drinking with us hated the stuff.  I am much more creative, but also like games of chance.  So my horror-shot would be a mixture of the first three bottles on the shelf.  Absynthe and gin do not go together.  Unfortunately, this was not bad enough as the third bottle happened to be olive oil. 

We have since named this shot "The Egg".  None of us puked immediately, and none of us have dared to replicate the experience since.
