Enough with the lifestyle photos - Page 11

post #151 of 187
interesting little side note on that...in the lead up to the Lunar New Year, the streets are lined with people selling empty bottles of just about anything high-end. It's a nice side earner for bar staff, who sell the empties to the vendors. The reason? Locals buy them, fill them up with cheap ass local liquors of the same color, and serve to their relatives in the festive season where they all toast their wealth, taste and appreciation for The Finer Things. This is my world. As you were...

Small-timer trick: I actually save all empty wine bottles, refill them with water and use them as ballast in the wine cellar. The wine cellar is too big, and the climate control will work too hard if the cellar isn't full. It's more economical if the cellar is full (some temperature/physics reason I don't understand). So, if you don't have enough wine to fill the cellar, fill it with bottles filled with water.

Oh they do that year round, I've had some evil evil fake alcohol hangovers...but it is normally pretty controlled - an organised crime thing in large volume that you don't really see, but you damn sure taste, and damn sure feel.

Just at Tet it is everywhere and out on the streets with vendors selling it to passersby for DIY Blue Label.

very good, and very unique (thanks in part to the Chard only composition). Exceptionally good, actually.

the bottles with liquid help retain the cooler temperature and the electric cooler has to work less as it goes on and off throughout the day. The problem is you don't have enough wine in the first place

Lifestyle photos are okay as long as you're showing me a lifestyle that's better than mine. Don't depress me with your middle america/fat wife/ugly kids and we'll be fine.

Okay.

Did I miss your entry in the accessory challenge? Sorry if I did.

And hopefully that band belongs to his wife. A man shouldn't be wearing diamonds set in a ring.

Nope, mine. You should see my diamond fronts. They are only F color but ah well. Its only teeth.

He's doubly poor. Not only can he not afford to fill his wine cellar, he's even doing things to conserve electricity. Energy management is for uber-small-timers.

I have some great LSPs of rasing kids in the suburbs. I even have a minivan. Interested?
