    Such few demands should make you an excellent candidate I'd think- you don't even want golden streets!

    A proper glass makes all the difference- I've been to bars where they serve the beer in plastic glasses.... I took to bringing a glass glass in my purse

    beer tastes better that way.
    Thank you.

    If you are interested I wink Peter. He is a simple fisherman.. he appreciates simple tastes and modesty and good plain food and wine and beer and dance.

    All I hope is heaven has a glass factory, or two. Those plastic mugs are not civilised.
    And imagine.. I have heard rumors there exist bars where they give you the bottle and that's it. No mug at all!
    Not even the plastic one.

    Sometimes there's a lot more intricacy in the most seemingly simple things than one would expect- a perfect glass of wine has subtle nuances that you could never manage to capture in a mixed drink. All you need to do is pour it.

    I'd take the simple fish over the higher class resteraunt fare any day of the week- I've always been disturbed by the concept of white tablecloths and good silver anyways

    I've been to bars where they won't serve anything except for in cans once or twice- it was a horrible experience! I don't think I'd be pleased with a heaven without glasses and good beer... not since I know that they exist!

You may have interesting ideas, but I don't have the motivation to sift through the riddles to find them.

    Peace.
    I have to agree here. May I ask why the dense, pseudo-poetic style? I can't seem to muster up the motivation to sift through it to find the point.

    I do not mix drinks either. I like my Koskenkorva and my Campari and my Scotch and my Rye and my Schnaps and my Chianti and my Saku and my Saki and my Lowenbrau, unmixed and unstirred.

    A fancy restaurant is an abomination.
    Places like El Morocco and the Storck make me sick. Walford Astoria has no taste.
    White tablecloth is for the Republicans and all those Country Club Waspies.

    Plain country food in a simple diner in a remote village on the riverside in the mountains is the best thing ever.
    And if you do not have money it does not matter. You can always help the host with the harvest, or dishes, whatever.

    The waspies jog and they go to the gym. They even pay money to do it.
    They do not know that the best things in life do not cost anything.
    Friedman said there is no free lunch. What did he know?
    He was never out in the open.

    The mode is not the thing.
    You are interested in the mode only when you are disinterested in the thing.

    I don't find the medium to be cumbersome at all. It's actually a nice filtration device.

    Pseudo-poetic...?

    True.

    I thought it was a good filter.
    It did work for a time.

    Nothing is perfect

    Still works quite well.

    Participation isn't mandatory.

    Neither is comprehension.
