Although I enjoy RTD here in lovely old Denver, it’s a bit silly for me to pay a bus pass fee when I can reasonably walk to work (2.3 miles).

MillerCoors now famously did not renew their Minnesota distributing license in time, and tragically, consumers will soon not be able to enjoy the champagne of beers in Minnesota. Even more unfortunately, many restaurants and bars have liquor licences that will expire on August 1st, leaving the ENTIRE PROSPECT OF DRINKING very uncertain in Minnesota. As the Atlantic notes, the entire bureaucratic mess only serves to demonstrate how ridiculous the liquor licensing laws are in Minnesota. Here is a list of beers that will be pulled from Minnesota shelves if the government shutdown lasts.

“I just want to close my eyes and fall asleep happy, knowing that when Neville Longbottom SPOILER FROM THE BOOKS went back to Hogwarts to teach planty things, every single student wanted to tap that ass, and every single young nubile lady teacher probably did. Heck, maybe McGonagall, too. She seemed a potentially randy sort. I don’t know her life.”—
So I work with a veritable who’s who of geniuses. I may have a Master’s, but today has sealed my understanding of my place on the bottom rungs.
One of our engineer’s is leaving next week to get his PhD where he will basically be creating mind controlled wheelchair access. He is currently brain dumping his knowledge and ideas to us before he leaves.
