Don't fall for it comrade, that's the oldest HO-scaled trick in the book!

whatever happened to the days of government where it was proper to drink, cuss, and gamble? that's what this country needs, a return to our true heritage as americans. what's the point of power if you can't fulfill the public's dream?

Cognac = Expensive Brandy from France

I say the dude gets bunch of cheap ass brandy and passes it off. But on the off chance he gets XO grade Congac... Hmmm

I suppose Dostoevsky probably is obscure isn't he. How depressing.

I hope it's not laced with the same stuff that ruined Yushchenko's face.

Russian Cognac is quite good, actually. Of course France is pissed because Russia and other republics use "cognac", but who cares? Russia doesn't and they told France "never".

Here's the link for the article:

There's good cognac from Aramata (sp) and The *.stan's, but you can't get it in the US...

Would still be a good bit of cognac.

"Alexei Fyodorovich Karamazov was third son of a landowner from our district, Fyodor Pavlovich Karamazov. Well known in his own day, and still remembered among us, because of this dark and tragic death, which happened exactly thirteen years ago and which I shall speak of in its proper place."

Given the previous comments, I'm suprised no one pointed out that IT'S A TRAP!

All that cognac will come in handy for "The Olympic Erotica 2004" (link at the top of the article)

Sweet link, DataPanic!

Now I know exactly what armagnac is!

Depends. You can induce betting with highish pairs (9s, 10s) and be pretty much set, and don't forget the free flop at the big blind.

Mixed faces never work out for me, though. I swear to god, every time I have AK/KQ/AQ, I'll flop like...3, 6, 8
