6. good question; I'm not sure
I guess the tonic and lime add a certain piquancy that I just don't get from vodka.

Plus, there's that whole neo-hipster martini thing that turns me off.

3. I hope it's Bombay or Tanqueray.
Stay away from the cheap stuff. It will ruin your stomach. So ask you anything eh? Why didn't you offer me some? It's not good to drink alone you know.

7. too late; see post above
Tanq is pretty good, though pricey. I never noticed a difference between Bombay and the cheaper stuff.

15. Quinine is mean
the only way I could ever drink gin was with grapefruit juice to counteract the cabbage like taste of the gin.

22. It's just my way
of killing the gin taste. But I haven't had gin in about 25 years so I may try a new mix.

13. long enough for your mum
just kidding, of course; I love a bwady dangling joke as much as the next person.

And speaking of bawdy dangling jokes, do you really want specifics?

23. the interface for a Mac crash is much friendler than for the PC
either they get the frowny face (old school) or the computer just hangs in limbo indefinitely; either way, it's denial-friendly.

27. Fine, I'll just use my ol' Betamax here
that's faster than yours, crashes less than yours, and has far slicker multimedia features than yours!

28. Costs more too
Edited on Sat Aug-23-03 01:09 AM by JVS
have fun with it though

I can sympathize with you too. I like Reverse Polish Notation calculators and few others do. I am convinced RPN is the better way to go, but it's just not as popular.
