i have no idea what rock and rye is, okay, I know what rye is...but rock? my grandma liked seven up and bourbon, maybe similar.

ah,California. I love living here,except it's along way from everywhere else...like Italy. you always have to add an extra five hours to your flights to Europe.
Rock and Rye is an old people cocktail. It survived prohibition because it was presented as a kind of tonic for ailments such as cold and flu. The "rock" is rock candy. It's rye whiskey with some sugar and spices and whatnot. It's good so long as it's not too sugary. Closest analogy I can come to might be a Manhattan, maybe.

I see that there's not much going on in the meditation thread.

Hence this post how do I stop orgasms during my meditation remains latest post since weeks.

It's so interesting to see how easily my eyes get hooked by that word orgasm when skimming through DW's top page for latest posts :jumping:
This is interesting, no? Are people not posting in the meditation sub because they want to keep the word ORGASM at the top there?

I think it's difficult to talk about meditation. I don't really talk about meditation practice at all.

With my MoviePass I've seen the following:
All the Money in the World
Downsizing
Star Wars
Three Billboards
Phantom Thread...

All for 10 bucks.

I walked out on Three Billboards (hey, it was basically free) and Phantom Thread was a long, disappointing movie mostly. Did anyone else see Three Billboards and think it to be a terrible, overly violent piece of garbage?

When will the company that started Moviepass go broke? Such a crazy concept I can't believe it can sustain itself.

I remember when salt and vinegar crisps came in the blue packets, and the cheese and onion the green.

Man, I swear I have a memory of complaining to my mother about the change on the way back from primary school.

Answer: Contrary to popular belief, Walkers Cheese and Onion have always been in blue packets, and Salt and Vinegar have always been in green packets. We don't have a plan to change this, as it's signature to our brand.

No.
I saw Three Billboards and thought it was wonderful, with Frances McDormand at her best since 'Fargo' and a superb performance from Sam Rockwell.
Taking advantage of a temporary situation. Back for a short time only folks.

Crisps are one of the greatest things about the UK, imo. It's not fair you guys get to keep the cheese and onion flavored ones all to yourself.

I'll give it another chance. I usually love Frances.

Your critique of Billboards is based on the violence depicted? Did you sit all the way through Star Wars?
