My wife does the shouting thing, then gets mad when I don't hear her.I employ this novel technique called "walking down the stairs."
Back in college, my roommate and I played the same online game. We commonly used voice communication to play with the rest of the team. One time, everyone else had left and we continued talking to each other. Over comms. While in the same room.
We just need to combine Fang and why for some sort of titan of arbitrary American hatred.
My water bill always say that I'm using way more water than average, despite only having two people in the house and never watering my lawn. I'm not sure who these "average" people are, but they must not bathe much.
I see that in the lab a lot. You've got people who just try something and see if they can get it working, and people who want confirmation on everything. Ups and downs to either.

Somebody else brought that up. I have a hard time with the language for heavily peated drams. I get a lot more rich peat, smoke, and earthiness from Laphraoig. Something like Ardbeg Corryvrecken reminds me of a hurricane; salt and iodine and seaweed with the peat overlaid on that.
