“Sarajevo was also the first city in Europe and the second city in the world to have a full-time operational electric tram network running through the city, the first being San Francisco.”—Sarajevo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
After swirling the whiskey in the glass and observing its color, sip a small quantity. Then work it slowly around your mouth for no less than ten seconds, tasting the spirit’s every note. Then swallow.
Another fun note: an ordinary blended scotch is made from up to 50 spirits from different distillaries. Single malt = one distillary (obv). Go with the single malt. And never ever use ice in a single malt. A couple drops of water is ok though, to bring out flavor.
I’ve been thinking that, since college, a lot of my day goes by where I probably don’t learn a single new thing (of substance at least).
That’s going to change starting today. Whether it’s a few phrases of a new language, a recipe, a tidbit of history, a scientific explanation, a sport or athletic technique, an important set of statistics - I’m going to learn stuff again.
Some days I’ll be more ambitious than others. But I’ll try to learn stuff that you might find interesting too.
“What work I have done I have done because it has been play. If it had been work I shouldn’t have done it. Who was it who said, “Blessed is the man who has found his work”? Whoever it was he had the right idea in his mind. Mark you, he says his work—not somebody else’s work. The work that is really a man’s own work is play and not work at all. Cursed is the man who has found some other man’s work and cannot lose it. When we talk about the great workers of the world we really mean the great players of the world.”—Mark Twain
