Hi David Darn Sarf - no chance, Spent most of the day on the phone helping mother sort out Dad's situation. He had a fall a couple of days ago, back from hospital with stichted up forehead and hand (he fell on a glass he was carrying and thank goodness it wasn't worse ) and we arranged, with the doctor's help, to get him admitted to a rehabilitation centre for physical therapy. Looks like he'll be there for three weeks. It's been a busy day but rest assured I was in my underpants and the lager can was not far from my side. Cheers (burp).

David - I'll have to go back to the archive and check out Věra Špinarová! I was eating lunch so I missed it. My grandparents were from CZ so I always enjoy hearing that stuff.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Handy Haversack:

Oof, Stanley, sorry to hear it! Lager consolation extra important!

Phillippe, I think so. They were playing half the night, and for some reason this worried the dog, who would not stop crying. I think I got about four hours of sleep. Can we just skip ahead to *next* Thursday when I begin a week and a half without work? We are run to a ragged edge here.

YB: Yes, the languages are similar although I've heard that younger people have been having a harder time understanding the other one since the country split apart due to fewer contacts.

I wonder many of us will still be listening and commenting from our rehab centres/nursing homes/hospital beds in the (not so far away, for some of us) future.

Moravské must be very close to Moravia, though.

I've never been. One of these days I will make a pilgrimage. My grandmother always had a lot of Polish friends, she said Polish was easier for her to understand than Czech

(looking at map) I misspoke, it's not that close to Bratislava. Like I said, I haven't been ther yet. But the family legend is that my grandmother ran away from home (fleeing an arranged marriage) and went first to Bratsilava, then Vienna, then London, and wound up in Newark NJ

I vaguely remember seeing a spherical Moon ice mold somewhere; may need to track that down.

I have a sphere mold too, but it lacks moon-features

i'll stay in africa but go to south africa
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Handy Haversack:

I know it's one of the Platonic solids, YB (which is also why it's a die shape, QED). But not directly how it relates to quintessence. I'm thinking gin, Aperol, dry vermouth, orange bitters for the Quintessence? Maybe add a soda float?

Heard, 3Moons. We'll get it done when it's peaceable and easy.

Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:59pm YETI BOB:

HH: The ol' Greeks had 4 elements and 5 favorite hapes. And so this led to the idea that the shape of the atoms caused their properties. Fire was tetrahedral (pointy). Earth was cubes (stacks nicely). Water was icosadedron a.k.a. D20 because they roll and flow. And air was an octahedron, I don't remember why.

So that left the 5th shape left over - the "quintessence". Some say it represents the unity of the Universe.

Also there's this physicsworld.com... some cosmologists think the universe might actually BE a dodecahedron, which would be awfully weird (Plato was right all along!)

Mild week here as well, yesterday sunny and 9°C - today rainy and the same - practically spring.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:17pm YETI BOB:

Brian in UK: I never thought about what JC was drinking, but to me it's not quite opaque enough to be a bloody mary (or wine) - look at the light on the table - to my eye it's a golden amber color. Like some nice whiskey.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Handy Haversack:

YB, I think the obvious answer is that it's a Quintessence!
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:19pm YETI BOB:

HH: INDEED! Now I just need the recipe.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Brian in UK:

YETI BOB, he would need that.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:20pm YETI BOB:

HH: I like your suggestion above, I'[m going to try gin/aperol/vermouth/orange bitters. With the soda float, because it needs 5 ingredients.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:21pm chris in the redwoods:

so they do indeed jam the hell out in Belarus. nice.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:22pm YETI BOB:

That reminds me - did you know, "punch" comes from the same root as "fünf"? Because traditionally there are 5 ingredients.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Handy Haversack:

Presumably same root and ingredients for a knuckle sandwich?
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:22pm YETI BOB:

This conversation is making me very thirsty. BBWAB.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm David Dichelle:

YB: Yes, same root as five, cinq, pyat', pente, and many others in fact.

Michael - re Żubrówka: "In the US, it's taboo because the Food and Drug Administration prohibits a potentially toxic chemical that occurs naturally in bison grass, coumarin. Until recently, only a few black-market bottles were available, mainly in the Polish neighborhoods of Brooklyn and Chicago." (I've had it, it's delicious)
