Meine Antwort vom SBB

Mein Brief


delagate counts for the nomination of presidential candidates

Clinton took more of the popular vote in the Nevada caucases. Obama took more delagates though. In my book that means Obama won. Like the national election, this is not a popular vote

Favorite Wines

I had been, every time my wife and I drank a new wine we enjoyed, saving the bottles above my cupboards in my kitchen so that we would remember which wines we liked and what to purchase in the future. I cleaned out above my cupboard and decided I would dispose of the bottles to make space and just write down the names. So here is my list, in no particular order.

Villa Antinori Toscana
Club des Sommeliers Cabernet d'Ajou France
Chateau Tuyttens Sauternes Bordeaux
Pétillant deListel Framboise
Yvorne Chasselas Vaudois
J.P. Chenef Chardonnay France
Dr. Loosen 2005 Riesling Germany
Baran deHoen 2005 Riesling Alsace
Graševina 2002 Krauthaker Croatia

2+2=5 BS, the 2008 presidential primaries, and the idiot newscasters who cannot count

Today, the big news is that Hillary Clinton has won the democratic primary in the state of New Hampshire. You should only believe this if you cannot count to ten on your fingers. Obama has won 9 delegates in this state and Clinton won 9 delagates in this state. Amoungst people who can count, this means they tied. 9 is not greater than 9.

I am not mad because I prefer Obama over Clinton, I don't, I see little difference between the two. My problem is fundamental and on principle. I do like liars(i.e. new organisations) and I expect people( i.e. newscasters) to be able to count. I have found no national news site pointing out that the two candidates "won" the same number of delagates in NH.

Ignorance is not strenght, war is not peace, and 9 is not greater than 9.

Food in Aluminium Tubes

America needs more food sold in tubes. Normally I love to take the time and cook everything from sracth but if I am short on time and want a quick dinner or snack, food out of tubes really help. Examples of good food that you get in tubes here are; gravey (pictured), tomato paste, pâté, mustard, and mayonaise. The great thing about tubes is you can use exactly how much you want, put the cap back on, and back in the fridge. This is especially great for things like tomato paste that is usuallly only sold in cans in America and if you don't use the whole can then there is no good way to store the paste until you want to use it again. With the maynaise and mustard, there is no need to get a knife dirty to spread the condiment on your sandwich. The gravey is so good because it tastes better than the powder gravey mix one can buy (but not as good as making your own), and you can keep it in your cupboard just like the powder stuff. Americans, toothpaste isn'ty the only thing you can put in a tube.

So american food producers, I WAN TUBES!
