That's just boring. You know what I would do? I would edit php script to output inches instead. Let's say, 1 inch for 0 posts, +10 inches for every 3000 posts:

Code: Select all

$inches = 1.0 + $posts / 300.0;
This would place me at 6".75 :D

There is actually a drink, similar to an Alexander, with Scotch instead of Gin and vanilla ice cream instead of heavy cream. They are actually quite good. As with the Alexander, you can substitute the liquor of your choice. I've also had them with cognac (brandy) and Irish whiskey.

I don't think I would care for the juniper taste of gin with Crème de Cacao (dark is best). Dark rum might be good.

You can also substitute other liqueurs. One of the coffee liqueurs (Kahlúa, Kamora, or Tia Maria) or nut flavored liqueurs (Amaretto, Frangelico, or Kahana Royale) would probably work well.

Two of my favourites: Dark rum and coke float (best with 12-year old Appleton Estate rum); Kahlua double-chocolate shake ('double' means chocolate ice-cream and chocolate milk).

PS
Either goes well (enough) with doughnuts.

I've never tried spiking ice cream; I might try it someday. :? I haven't even had a cold beer lately. When I do have a cocktail; its usually just a bourbon sour. Guess I'm the last of the big party guys. :mrgreen: I do love root beer freezes; but I don't think that sounds very good with booze.

Root Beer and Ginger Ale were both originally alcoholic. I have, in fact, had both, made from what was claimed to have been original recipes (from a microbrewery). Can't say I cared for either. They did, however, make a Barley Wine that was excellent (and very alcoholic).

one thing i wanted to mention here is that right now Ann is holding the record for ppd. her ppd is 4.58!
and she made 220 posts in just less than 2 month!
Owlice, wouldn't you have even greater ppd with a new account in 2010? how long did it take you to make that 1042 posts?
