Dramatic chipmunk training for Olympics My girlfriend and I were at the Amnéville zoo in France this weekend and we came across a (dramatic) chipmunk frenetically humping a corner and scratching the windowed cage. From the look of the marks left on these windows, this chipmunk had been doing this for years, seemingly trying to escape the enclosure by jumping over the the aforementioned windows. This attempt, although stoutish, was of course completely futile and quite hilarious as well...but after a while of good laughter at his expense, he gave me the grim look of the dramatic chipmunk :) EDIT: to all and any overzealous animal activists watching this, the prairie dog is not actually trying to escape, but just trying to get closer to people who he knows have pop corns expressly intended for feeding the animals. The prairie dog lives a very happy and comfortable life in his enclosure (of this zoo which helps protecting over 20 endangered species). If you feel pity for this animal, it's a understandable human feeling but also the outcome of a typically distorted conception of animal needs. There is a reason why human ethics isn't simply transposed to animal ethics: our needs are not identical. For more information on this, I suggest reading articles on comparative psychology and animal cognition (notably on "Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy" which is accessible on the net).
me and skylord (stoutish) muck around on gmod tralier! coming soon!

Hougly Beer Review: Alexander Keith's Dark Ale. When first released it was called "Stag Head Stout", which is a pretty damn cool name. But because the general public quickly learned how non-stoutish it was -- and perhaps because Rickard's came out with their "Dark" -- they changed the name. My brother joins me on this one and we honestly tried to keep it short, but the beer was such an insult that we couldn't stop ripping on it. The Keith's brewery really needs to learn how to properly label their beers.
American Beer TV : St Patty's Day Tasting 63 : Port Brewing Old Viscosity 4 Year Old - Kenny saved this bottle of Port Brewing's Old Viscosity in a dark cool place (refrigerator) for over four years. Originally given to him as a Christmas present by his wife, Kenny waited for the right moment to release it's goodness. The moment presented itself in the 2011 St. Patrick's day special. We wanted a special beer to share with you guys. Not just something basic, but one of a kind. And we figured due to St. Patricks, it should be a stout, or at least stout-ish. Now a bottle of 2007 Old Viscosity does fit the bill, and it is stoutish, however, Port Brewing refuses to resign Old Viscosity to a style, instead stating that's it's an amalgamation of stout, porter, old ale and barleywine styles. Old Viscosity clocks in at 10%, and it held up surprisingly well to the aging. It was still carbonated, but it's hop character has mellowed out leaving this an experiment in chocolate malty bitterness. Really nice beer, whether it is fresh or aged, and I highly recommend picking up a bottle. Cheers!
