It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a
month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts...So in old
England, when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them "Mind your pints and quarts, and settle down."
It's where we get the phrase "mind your P's and Q's"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a whistle baked into
the rim, or handle, of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service. "Wet your whistle" is the phrase inspired by this practice.

^^That shit was good Wu-Disciple...I of course tried to lick my elbow and was unsuccessful...there's gotta be someone who can do it...Gene Simmons perhaps?

And word, us Alaskans are hardcore! Not only does it get colder than 60 below zero but its dark all winter long too! We are also lucky enough to have the highest suicide rate per capita...too many cats sick of walking to work everday!!??
