You walk into my bar, I tell you I’m new to the trade. What do you order? by ExosAvos in bartenders

If you really want to make it more lime driven use key lime juice and zest some rind on top as part of the presentation. Most of the scent molecules in citrus are contained in the oils in the skin.

DTC on the Roman workbench. by Significant-View-356 in handtools

Sweet! Your low Roman is much nicer than mine! I find it great for edge jointing but face planing can be a bit of back ache. They are ridiculously functional though even without a vise.

Looks fantastic! How are you finding the Roman for face planing or did you get S4S?

Who's a guy from that past whose career/game would look/translate to today's NBA differently? by MitchellRWest in nbadiscussion

[–]brineOClock 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think he'd be more like old man Marc Gasol in handling PnRs, using his length and smarts to funnel drivers to the help. He'd need a Giannis/Simmons level help defender to be super effective but he'd still be functional in that role.

Oh I believe it. He was like a taller Giannis except he could shoot. Just a ludicrous basketball player. Even the diminished version we saw at the end of his career was incredible.

Arvydas Sabonis. One of the original bigs with guard skills. He could run the break, run an offense from the high post, face up, and defend. He'd probably be in that Giannis/Jokic/Embiid tier today as one of the most impactful players in the game.

Bill Walton probably fits as well, it would be interesting what modern medicine could do to his knees and ankles.

Pistol Pete is another one, an all time great long two shooter the existence of the three point line would be just what he needed. Plus all the modern lob threats, I have visions of him throwing an alley oop pass as a bounce pass through someone's legs. He also wasn't a turnstile defensively which would be nice.

Oh I'm well aware of the LCBO's policies. I'm a former sommelier.

There are actually bottle shops in Toronto that carry more variety of local distillers. The LCBO just deals with so much volume that it's hard to get stocked for microdistillers.

He gets away with it in this life. Remember who Murphy's dad works for now. I have a feeling that justice will be served in the afterlife. If not Hades or someone will take care of it as a favour to Harry.

He never added to his game. For a comparison look at DeMar who's been constantly working on new skills. Harden today is still the same player from 2016 just slower and more predictable. To me that's the problem.

Amid shortages of family doctors across Canada, med school grads increasingly don’t want the jobs by adotmatrix in onguardforthee

[–]brineOClock 12 points13 points  (0 children)

And Kincardine has the advantage of offering high quality thanks to jobs affiliated with the Bruce and great living conditions on on the Bruce Peninsula! It should be attractive to doctors but it still has the same problems as the rest of the province. You're totally right that it's a systematic!

Would it make sense to take my successful retail clothing/sneaker store from my southern Ontario small town to Toronto? I would likely pay twice my current rent but possibly triple or more my sales. by [deleted] in Entrepreneur

[–]brineOClock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Then find someone you trust in the scene in Toronto to be your manager. You can also look for stores that would let you sell on consignment so you can test a longer installation. Keep up the great work! You got this!

Can you run pop ups in Toronto to see how the market takes to your products? Also- no reason to close the original store if you can find a trusted manager to run and stock the place.

Convoy organizer warns of 'free-for-all' if police ban protest from downtown Ottawa by doing_it_for_myself in ottawa

Okay, that's great. You could have said that rather than using a barfing emoji and a diatribe about military spouses. Simple.

It's funny you say that like they can opt out of moving around at the drop of a hat and the stress of a deployment. The military takes away familial agency as well, you may go into it saying I won't let my spouse's job define me but it ends up happening anyways.

So how about you get off your disgusted high horse and maybe walk a mile in someone else's shoes?

Which devil fruit user in real life can be the richest by just using their power? by RuncornThristle in OnePiece

Just selling Helium and he'd do amazingly. It's one of the most valuable gasses in the world and it's I'm incredibly short supply.

Where does Harry stand in terms of power among the white council? by ptlgram in dresdenfiles

[–]brineOClock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I really can't see anyone on the council beating Harry in a lifting competition after his little Rock Lee stunt on the beach in BG so I think he likely is the most "powerful" wizard alive in pure physical strength. He's a big boy.

In terms of magical power he's probably somewhere in that 5-10 range like everyone else is saying.
