It's because wine's flavor is overwhelming, which means that "subtle nuances" are often creations/interpolations of the brain itself rather than objective qualities - http://www.newyorker.com/tech/frontal-cortex/does-all-wine-taste-the-same [ Reply | More ]

All wine doesn't taste the same. There are differences in tannins, acidity, sweetness; wine can change how a certain food tastes and vice versa. Price points however, do not make a wine good or bad. [ Reply | More ]

I love the incongruous way in which the two-man horse moves. The two men can never seem to quite get in sync (which is a good thing, as it lends itself to hilarity), and the front guy gets to rise and dip and dance all erratically and gracefully, whereas the back guy just kind of follows and tries not to trip. It's also funny to see such a lifeless and stupid-looking head attached to such a dynamic body. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] More serious spin-off of the "ways to spot an asshole post". A lot of women here have given the advice that the most important trait in a husband, above all others, is good character, and that it is the one trait that will lead to happiness in times of money, no money, sickness, health, etc. BUT - how can one separate asshole from behavior from the general male baseline of, well, male behavior? Things like looking at other women, bachelor parties, drinking and staying out late? Where does the line from 'normal man' cross over into 'asshole'? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

In the non-profit world, it is always up to the organization to tell its funders what they can and cannot look closely at. And the funders have to live with that and must continue to fund the non-profit. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

This is what state law requires and what you should offer: Cash benefits are 50 percent of a claimant's average weekly wage, but no more than the maximum benefit allowed. The average weekly wage is based on the last eight weeks of employment. If counting the last week in which the disability began lowers the benefit rate, it is not included in determining average weekly wage. Effective May 1, 1989, the maximum benefit allowance for any disability is $170 a week. [ Reply | More ]
