Topic Is there a problem with police in the USA?

Poorly screened.
Poorly trained.
Teaming with racists.
Good cops never end bad cops.
The belief they’re judge jury and executor.

Yes there’s a problem. Fuck the police because they prefer protecting their own or themselves than purging the system of the bad apples.

Definitely poorly screened and trained. I went to school with johannas mehserle, the cop who shot Oscar grant by mistake. He was the one who thought he had pulled his taser instead of his gun. Hard to believe someone could do that right? But Johannas was the dumbest fucking kid in school. Literally the worst grades, a lot of behavioral problems, couldn’t sit still, bullying... everything that can be wrong with a kid.

In the video where you can see him pull his gun and shoot Grant, johannas got the same stupid look on his face and makes the same dumb ass gestures with his body that he used to make as a kid when he did something really stupid. I actually do believe he actually fucked up and pulled his gun by mistake. The guy really was a fucking moron.

I remember one time he unfolded a paper clip to put in his teeth to make fun of my friend’s braces and when he laughed the paper clip poked him in the cheeks so hard he started bleeding and I swear he made the same stupid ass movement with his body. Fucking idiot had to go to the nurse and get sent home to his poor hardworking Jordanian parents.

Guy really was a bozo. When the fruitvale station story made national news I was not surprised in the slightest Johannas would make that mistake. I doubt anyone who knew him was surprised. Probably more surprised they gave him a badge and a gun really.

Topic Any Bourbon drinkers on Lush?

I can't speak for you guys in the US, but the hilarious thing is that calling a 'Makers and Coke' in a bar here in Montreal would actually lead to much more confusion than that (and I'm suspecting the exact same for just about every country that isn't swimming in bourbon like yours). A bottle of Maker's Mark costs $50 around here; it's totally up there with Grey Goose as a top-shelf bottle. If you consider that bars establish their prices with a 500% markup (which all of them do), you'd be quite literally pouring your drink from a $250 bottle.

Now consider that many bourbon connoisseurs (which most bartenders are) even find diluting a high-quality bourbon with sugar and a tiny splash of a water in an Old Fashioned to be an outright profanity, and you can only imagine their reaction when you'll be asking them to dilute a top-shelf bourbon in cheap Coca-Cola. Let me remind you that Liz who is still allegedly a bourbon newbie went through the trouble of buying herself whiskey stones to make goddamn sure that even melting ice wouldn't taint her precious Maker's Mark.

So a bartender in Montreal (or elsewhere) being asked a 'Makers and Coke' is just going to wonder what the fuck you want exactly. You're asking him to grab one of his top-shelf bottles, surely you want to appreciate it fully and not completely dilute it in the cheapest mixer imaginable in a tall Collins glass, right? So you probably want your Maker's Mark with just a tiny splash of Coke in an Old Fashioned glass, correct? And in the situation where you truly want a highball, why exactly call a drink that's twice as expensive as a good old $10 Jack and Coke when your bourbon is going to be so much diluted that even experts couldn't tell the goddamn difference? At which point, yeah, plenty of bartenders around the world would totally have a much easier time getting your drift if you just referred to a well-established Jack and Coke with a different type of whiskey. They'll still be completely obliviously to your weird rationale, but at least they'll know how to proceed.

Here's the list of famed whiskey cocktails as presented by Wikipedia. Thousands of whiskeys around the world (including bourbon, rye, Scotch, Irish, blended) and dozens of possible mixers, and Jack and Coke is absolutely there among these few limited prestigious drinks. Where in hell is your Makers and Coke exactly? Where is even your extremely generic Whiskey and Coke, or Bourbon and Coke?

The reality is that 'Makers and Coke' isn't an established drink with a fixed recipe any more than 'Gin and Milk' is; it's just two random ingredients put together. Hilariously enough, Google only returns 40,000 results for 'Makers and Coke', while 'Gin and Milk' returns 180,000 results. And 'Jack and Coke' actually returns twice as many results in Google than the extremely inclusive 'Whiskey and Coke' does.

So allow me to reiterate: Jack and Coke isn't just the name of two random ingredients put together like Makers and Coke or any other silly drink is; it's the name of a goddamn cocktail that has well over a hundred years of history (1907) and that's insanely popular all around the world. Jack Daniel's is by fucking far the best-selling whiskey in history, while Coca-Cola is by fucking far the best-selling soft drink, and they're both pillars of southern American culture with extremely similar success stories that date back to the exact same era (circa 1880). That's the whole charm of the Jack and Coke, that sort of trashy old-fashioned spirit that still holds its ground admirably well among all these other posh drinks. Not only that, but it just so happens that the particular sweetness of Jack Daniel's harmonizes with Coca-Cola better than 95% of other whiskeys out there, even better than most top-shelf whiskeys in the $50-100 range. Even the name 'Jack and Coke' has an extremely catchy sound to it and their respective vintage logos look badass as fuck when shown together:

For all these reasons Jack and Coke will always remain a classic benchmark cocktail and the absolute epitome of 'Whiskey and Coke', just like Kleenex® is to kleenexes or Speedos® is to speedos. And likewise, a Beam and Coke will always remain a poor man's Jack and Coke, while a Makers and Coke will always remain an extravagant man's Jack and Coke. You and Felix getting all finicky when I mention my own standards when I'm mixing myself a Jack and Coke is just as retarded as telling someone that his 'Rum and Diet Pepsi' isn't quite the same as the famous 'Rum and Coke'; it's just so goddamn face-palm inducing.

Felix deliberately played the imbecile to feed a grudge that's a few days old; you managed to outdo him by buying right into his imbecility to feed a grudge that's nearly a year old.

So fucking brilliant, I think I'll be drinking to that.

Dude, when I’m in France I order French fries with ketchup and when they ask me what kind of ketchup I’m like mayonnaise of course!

You've recently managed to accumulate two successive late evening/early morning drunken Lush posting/insulting sessions.

You know, in the seven or eight years since you discovered this website and began plaguing the rest of us, I've watched many hundred of forum posters come and go, come and stay, grow a little bit, provide sober and thoughtful commentary (consistently) and not really change all that much from what they first appeared to be...

A great many appear suddenly with major fucktarded opinions - they'd get routed off the site after 3-12 months to never reappear.

But you're the first and only internet person I've ever watched - on any forum who has actually aged and devolved while doing so. You suddenly appeared here one afternoon - immediately showing your bonobos ass and nobody thought you could get any worse.

You proved everyone wrong!

You have given me (a few) and many here - some laughs, that's for sure. But you were in your mid 20s then, a long time ago .

The aging Lush court jester who thinks he's the senior junkyard dog.

You're a lot more humorous after you've knocked back whatever swill it is that you've been soaking up lately. Weed just made you meanderingly goofy.

So much for not letting me bait you... I literally said your instinct is to bite and you still couldn't help yourself. You never ever learn haha

I'm not exactly which "guns thing" you're referring to. But Canada's hands aren't exactly clean of contributions to the world of firearms.

Enter Sir Charles Ross, Scottish blue blood and adviser on the subject of small arms to the Canadian Military.

Due to a shortage of Enfield rifles, and British reluctance to equip Canada's army with what was available, Ross persuaded Canada to adopt the rifle he invented, and so Canada entered WWI with the second best target rifle ever issued to anyone's front line infantry, the Ross Mk III.

Note that the Ross was a bit finicky but was far from as dangerous as has been alleged.


Shut the fuck up.

Who fuck eats ketchup with spam? Your knowledge of Canadian culture seem to get worse and worse every day. Spam in an American product that was invented in Hawaii. Ketchup is white trash American condiment. How you manged to put those two together and promote them as somehow "canadian" is a mystery to me. If you want to talk about a Canadian dish then at least bring up poutine. I'm actually surprised that you Americans ahven't jumped on that bandwagon. Fries, cheese and gravy? Seems like an American heart attack inducing wet dream.

Wow...I went from douche to nerd in no time at all.

When I say "back to the actual topic", I in no way wanted to curb the trash talk. I just wanted to add an interjection that pertained to the actual reason why I started the thread.

By all means continue with the trash talk. I could post some shirtless pictures of myself with my new eyepatch but I can just smell the pirate jokes ruminating..

Back to actual topic here....

Roseanne just got approved for a second season.

I watched the first two episodes (before I made this thread). It's exactly the same show that I watched back in 1993. Of course they threw in a gender neutral kid and a black daughter to cover all the bases.

It's moderately funny while still trying to appeal to really really dumb people.

Nostalgia is a big money trend right now in the entertainment industry.

Dude, can’t believe a dragon would pull the “back to the actual topic” card...

I’m a bit disappointed.

Mate. This is super weak by your standards. Fell flat actually. There’s a difference between say, disliking American political and foreign policy (and who can really blame them given an unending war that’s created several splinter terror groups and the election of a blubbering con man with xenophob and sexist ideas) and enjoying certain pop-culture touchstones such as music, film, and art. The two aren’t mutually exclusive and show the ability of a human to rationally discern the good from the bad.

Who’s eating up “our” music though. That’s one thing I’d say now has so many global influences it no longer really belongs to one country unless we are talking unchanged tribal music and the like.

Thank you for the compliment.

But, if I may, falling flat means no one cares right? I can’t post a thought without you guys getting offended or whining about something.

Look, you can’t sit here and say America has a great ass and tits and in the same breath call us a bitch and expect us to be like oh you haha no worries.

Just look at the music, the most popular pop songs have a strong South American influence. Also my bad I didn’t know ‘latino’ was offensive. I’m just saying, they want to deport people why playing shit like Despacito and Havana on loop. That’s not even mentioning the fashion etc.

That’s Puerto Rican. That doesn’t count. Not South American btw... Puerto Rico is an American territory. I’d be willing to bet that song was recorded in New York or something. More Puerto Ricans in the US than PR.

America is in a unique position that our vast immigrant populations can fuel media that seems like it’s not from America. It's what make's us strong really.

Weird for the average non-American. No question of that. But out of character for that particular non-American? Surely, you jest!

You'd consider him just a bit CDO* if not "straight 'round the bloody bend."

I am not very familiar with the show 'Roseanne'. Didn't she do a horrible rendition of the national anthem at a ball game once that made the entire stadium 'boo' her? I don't know much about her.

The only shows on Damon's list that I know much about are Seinfeld and Frasier. My parents watched those shows as I was growing up. I've really enjoyed watching Seinfeld over and over in syndication.

I like how they hired a vulgar comedian to “sing” the national anthem and were shocked when she tried to make it funny.

It’s like hiring Steven Wright as a color commentator and then being shocked when he brings the energy to a crawl.

People are so stupid.

You're really scraping the bottom of the nationalist barrel now huh? Congratulations. You've now managed to delve into Seax territory when it comes to nationalistic ignorance. Congratulations again on taking what was intended as joke post and trying to paint it as an attack on America.

Seeker already explained that our two countries share 99% of our pop culture, but I find it disappointing that you even need such clarification in the first place.

Either you are a lot more ignorant than I assumed or you are just trying to pick a fight. I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest it's probably mix of both. If you find it "weird" that I watched the same TV shows as the people that lived 30 minutes away from me in the 1990's... then you are showing your true intellectual colors. (Psst... I spelled "colours" the American way just so you won't get confused.)

"Gee? I wonder how people in Belfast know anything about Irish televisions shows....?" dontknow

As to your inquiry, yes, I have seen all the aforementioned sitcoms. (Huge Seinfeld fan by the way).

Of all the stupid topics you chose to engage me on, this was your pick?

Maybe in the future, if you want to use the whole "Canada" thing as an insult tactic you might want to learn at least something before cementing your role as Seax Jr in the forums and reinforcing the whole "ignorant American" stereotype.

In the meantime... I'll stay in my lane only make Canadian pop culture references. Stay tuned for my next thread on Degrassi...

I’m just saying that there’s something fucky about someone who obviously harbors a lot of contempt for the US to also be so in love with it’s culture. It’s weird.

I just seems that there’s a lot of non-Americans who hate us but can’t wait to go watch the new avengers movie. The world eats up our culture, our culture... our music, our TV, our movies... yet, they hate us.

About half of the list DamienX posted (Fresh Prince, ALF, Seinfeld and Frasier). Home Improvement was on here as well.

Danish: The Kingdom (Riget)
German: Derrick, Der Alte
Swedish: Pippi Longstocking (in Dutch 'Pippi Langkous', was dubbed in Dutch as it's a children's program)
Belgian: Merlina
British: Monty Python and a whole bunch more, but since I can't say for sure whether I saw them on Dutch television or on the BBC I'll leave them out

Most television shows on Dutch tv, apart from news, debate shows and quizzes, are probably foreign.
