July 17 :: The Return of The Bill

Postby Graham » 19 Jul 2008, 11:55

So, even though we decided to give out a rank already, the contest is still ongoing.
Continue posting your entries in last week's thread.
Safe to say, we already have our eyes on an upcoming winner, so if you're entering with new stuff, bring the heat.


Sorry it's late, but you'll know soon enough what I was working on that kept me.

And it'd better be something totally awesome, or I'll know the reason why!

Severe pr0n addiction? Murder on the ferry? Cocknobblery?

I hope none of those.

Why can't you just order unsweetened ice tea, then put sugar in it?

Because that never works.

I was in LA, and upon asking for sweetened iced iea, I was presented with a glass of unsweetened, and the bowl of sugar packets for coffee.
It. Never. Worked.

And this happened a lot, I could never get it right.

Eventually I just started ordering Coke. At least they couldn't fuck that up.

How can you not manage to sweeten a beverage to your tastes?

*incredulity*

It ends up either too sweet or not sweet enough, I couldn't find a middle ground, and there was always a bunch of undissolved sugar at the bottom. No matter how much I stirred.

Canadian iced tea sounds like Southern sweet tea.

Why would you ruin a perfectly good tea by pouring that much sugar into it?

Because it's delicious?
I don't put sugar in real, actual tea. But sweetened iced tea is the shiz.

I was visiting my best friend in Portland with another friend last year and when we went she kept ordering Iced Tea, and she did like, four times while we were there and couldn't figure out why it tasted bad. We kept telling her that she needed to put in her own damn sugar and she didn't get the hint.

She eventually came to the same realization of Coke to say the least.

KAHNLEE BAHT YUR TUNG YANKEE! Seriously, sweet tea from the south is like a fine wine. It takes on multiple personalities. PLUS, EEEEVERY proper southern woman has a recipe for sweet tea. It's like a marriage requirement: Homemade buttermilk biscuits, sweet tea, and cornbread. I should know, my mom lived in West Virginia as a child.

The only reason she doesn't do them now is because my dad's from Philly and was in the Navy.

Oh good lord no. Hot tea has either Splenda or honey in it for me. Sweetened iced tea is great. Though I heard if you need to make iced tea and sweeten it by the glass, simple syrup in a bottle is the best thing to use.

There's no such thing as too much iced tea.

You guys get 10,000 hits a day? Dang, I get like 705 hits/day on average. If I'm lucky I'll get more than 1,000 on any given day (Though on that token I've been pretty lucky recently).

Unless of course you mean 10,000 views...in which case I'm even more royally done for.

Managed to find Dead Man's Hand (King Kool's Green Noon variation) on youTube.

Definitely worth a look-see

Guys, I just checked the iphone here in Mexico and we can get: 200mb for about 75 dlls a month or unlimited for 130.

Not that I wanted one (I need my buttons man... buttons hundreds of them!), but the podcast made me curious about it XD
