1/29    Ideal ingredients for the perfect Manhattan?
        \_ "what have I done to deserve this flat, flavourless manhattan?"
        \_ Good bourbon for starters.  Jack Daniel's and Jim Beam are not good.
           see webtender:  http://www.webtender.com/db/drink/1641
           \_ Obviously no Jack or Jim.  I had one last night with Johnny
              Walker black that turned out good, and I'd imagine Maker's
              Mark would taste great as well.  Not sure if there's much
              difference between varieties of bitters or vermouth, though,
              which is sort of why I asked.  Any other whiskey drinkers
              on the motd?  --op
              \_ Johnny Walker is Scotch, which is quite different from bourbon.
                 My Fav. Bourbons are Wild Turkey 101, Booker's, Knob Creek
                 and Maker's Mark.  MM is mildest, and KC is most full-bodied.
                 \_ Basil Hayden's.  Very tasty.  Slight cherry nose.  Very
                    smooth.  Though I wouldn't mix it.
              \_ I'm a big fan of Maker's Mark or Jameson, depending on my
              \_ Some of the more expensive Wild Turkeys are pretty good
                 (rare breed and kentucky spirit), they're probably between
                 MM and KC in body.
        \_ I believe Manhattan's were originally made with rye whiskey,
           but bourbon (which is lighter-bodied) is now the standard.
           Lots of choices, do a google group search for various brands.

        \_ Look Shirac is not on that list. I wonder if the Washington Times
           will print a retraction and apology.
                \_ Look the article does not state Chirac was a beneficiary.
                   \_ Where? I looked under France and he's not there. Also,
                      one of the end notes suggests that the list may not
                      all be deals that were carried out, but that were
                      proposed. Russia appears to be the big beneficiary.

        many times writing to my Asian friends and now I've confused myself.
        Thx.  --- Asian
        \_ Yes, it's common English. My Chinese teacher always guessed that
           it was a direct translation of "chang shi bu jian" that made
           its way into the mainstream of American English back in the 19th
           century.  She had no proof of that though, it was just a guess.
        \_ Use that phrase when you actually see people, not when you write
           to them.
        \_ It's a colloquialism, like "What's up?"

           manager at work, for example.  Not a good career move.  :-)

12/8    How do I shrink a knit cotton sweater?  Should I wash it hot or dry it
        hot or just dry it for a long time?
        \_ Cotton shrinks a little the first couple times its washed.  I think
           you need to dry it hot.  If it's been washed a number of times,
           it won't shrink anymore.
           \_ This is an old sweater that's just gotten somewhat stretched out.
              Does that make a difference?
              \_ If it's been washed a number of times, it has already shrunk
                 all it's going to shrink.

12/1    \_ you seem to be implying that there's some
           sort of punishment here for gay people.
           hetero anal sex fetishists are just as
           unhealthy in terms of likelihood of
           spreading disease.
           \_ Just for completeness, anal sex isn't really a "fetish"
              \_ Ok, you're right. -!op who made the poo comment
                 \_ sure it is, if you really really like it and always
                    want to have anal sex instead of anything else.
                    notice i'm not talking here about your typical
                    "let's try it this way" sort of guy. -op
              \_ Is hot gay sex a fetish?
           \_ However, receptive anal sex occurs with both partners.  In a
              straight couple the woman has a higher risk for infection and if
              she has e.g. HIV then in a later relationship it is unlikely for
              her to transmit it to a male partner.  Not so for homosexual men.
              \_ I'm going to go out on a limb here:  How do you know that
                 all homosexual men are in reciprocal anal sex relationships?
                 Some guys like to give but not receive and some the other
                 way around.
