Only crappy bourbon or whisky or whiskey or rye needs ice.

FTA: It's the second death this year in Denali. On May 3, Mason Stansfield, 28, of Ouray, Colorado, died after falling into a crevasse while skiing on a glacier in the national park.

I was in Ouray for a day while on a trip to Durango. I had lunch and when done, back in my rental car, I back out and a truck hits me. His fault. We go to the Sheriff (as if it's an Old Western) to file a report and there's a line (!?) because Sheriff's out to lunch I guess. Moral of the story: when you rent a car, get the insurance. They took care of everything. Alternative moral of the story: winter sports are dangerous and I'm sorry for their loss.

The ice hit the two-person team about 5 a.m. as the men began to climb the west face of Reality Ridge.

Reality Ridge.  Pretty accurate name I reckon.

When it comes to whiskey, I'm sure subby knows Jack.

I like one ice cube in my whiskey but I always feel guilty. If it's top shelf stuff, I'll do it neat because ice is a crime in that spot.

A couple years ago I was having a drug transfusion and while waiting for the drip-drip-drip to finish, the nurse was working on a presentation. Turns out that she was an ER nurse presenting on different kinds of trauma. Her favorite? The previous winter some dumbass had an above-ground pool with a cap of ice on it. Instead of just waiting for spring to melt the ice, he decided to slide. No idea how he got it started, but he pulled it toward himself, and as it slipped off the edge of the pool, the edge of it rubbed against his leg, just like an n-foot long serrated knife. Cut the sucker right off.

/Yes, she had pictures.

I'm not big into whiskey but there is in fact a very sound reason based on chemistry to add a quite small amount of ice or cold water to a neat glass for maximum flavor. Read this

I would probably be stoned to death in Scotland for doing this but I like diluting it down all the way to approximately beer strength. Gotta stay hydrated hiking in the highlands!

Reminds me of a past landlord who died from an avalanche while climbing Mount Everest.

/idk why

You're lucky I don't have any mountain dew or the next picture would be me making a car bomb of distillers edition lagavulin with mountain dew.

People can drink it however they want. Stop worrying about the way other people enjoy their vices.

Unless it's well done steak. In that case fark you very much.

Nah, I don't care. I just enjoy watching people do the exact opposite of anything I urge them to do.

This seems like a melty time of year to be leaping about on a glacier.
 
2021-05-17 11:56:06 PM  
"Two mountaineering rangers were flown to the site by Denali National Park's high altitude helicopter, arriving about 7 a.m. They took the injured climber to a safe location on the glacier to provide emergency care then flew the man to the nearby town of Talkeetna, where he was transferred to an air ambulance for transport for further care."

Jesus; 4 helicopter flights, two triages, and onsite trauma care. By the time his HMO gets done with him, he'll wish the ice had finished him off. Would have been quicker that way...
