While your point is still valid, it was Colin Powell who gave the congressional testimony in question.
Perhaps I’m thinking of the evil, bald-faced lying to Congress she did afterwards to cover up the lies made to get us into the unnecessary war that plunged the country into a long, deep recession and caused the deaths of 4,486 U.S. service members and 500,000 Iraqis.

Way to totally ignore sportspuck. OFFENSIVE.
APPARENTLY you didn’t notice that the background is an ice rink. ::drops gloves::
Guys! I found the secret to getting faves on Twitter!
Now I need to figure out how to reply to everyone in one tweet.
That bottle logo’s familiar… creature of habit?
Kübler is a fantastic absinthe. I’ve only tried it and Lucid, but I’ve read lots of reviews. Lucid is harsh and unrefined. Kübler is very smooth and complex. I just wish it had the legendary green color for which absinthe is known.
But the people who make it are dedicated to their craft and concentrate on the best tasting absinthe they can make. They don’t use herbs that would make it green just to be green.
Artificial coloring is right out.
I haven’t had Kübler in a long time. I think this bottle is the one I bought after I visited you.
It has been too long for both of those things.
What’s with the cancellations?
The seller vowed to cancel any bids from people with a rating of less than 10. I guess he figured things got too mucked up by the low-rated people and just nuked it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.
The bidding started up again, and he cancelled a 1-rated bidder. But I saw the bidding before he did that, so I know what the current bidder’s high bid is now. Hee hee.
Why do people up on their own bid? More than once?
I can only think of a couple of reasons.
- They don’t understand how eBay’s bidding works. They want the price to go up as soon as they enter a higher bid. When they don’t see it go up, they think something went wrong and enter an even higher bid.
- They keep changing their minds and enter higher bids in a misguided attempt to ensure they win.
I’ve been watching people bid on iPhones for a couple of weeks now. The vast majority of people submit a bid that is the minimum step up from the current bid. If the previous bidder had used the system correctly and submitted their maximum bid, this incremental bidder would go one step at a time every 10-15 seconds (and being instantly outbid) until they were at the top of the heap. It’s like they just want to see their name as the high bidder for a while.
Of course, all that fine curation of the highest bid goes out the window in the last 30 seconds of an auction, when the big guns roll into town.
Why does anyone bid before the last minute?
I guess they don’t think about the mechanism of how the bidding works. Also, it’s in eBay’s best interest for people to bid throughout the length of the auction. That way, the final price is pumped up and their cut of the sale is higher. So there are little encouragements throughout the site to get people to bid early, bid often.
For example, there is a blue bar across the top of that auction that says “It is ending soon, so bid now before you miss out!" I also get emails about items in my watch list "ending soon!" which are actually over in six hours or more.
I have an AT&T 4S I will happily sell you for way less than that.
Thanks for the offer! That would be awesome, but I’m looking for a Sprint phone to use on Ting.
It was a media ploy by some of the congressmen who made the government shut down. They can’t pick and choose what they want open.
Wow, they think people are dumb. It only highlights shittiness of what the Republicans have done.
What if I leave out the beer? Still good, do you think?
Oh, definitely. I’ve never made it without the beer, though. It adds a lot to the complexity and makes it more thin and soupy in the beginning to combine all the flavors. The moisture evaporating from it allows it to cook a long time to blend the flavors. If you don’t add beer, you might be able to keep it covered.
Any ideas on what to replace the beer with?
