DailyDirt: Red, Red Wine...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Alcoholic beverages have been part of human culture for thousands of years. But what do we really know about these drinks? Red wine goes with red meats, and white wine goes with fish... Liquor before beer, you're in the clear... Here are just a few more interesting tidbits of information regarding ethyl alcohol. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    It's hard to tell a wine's price depending on its taste, and that is actually a very silly thing to do.
    An easy way to prove that is to taste a montperrat, worth about 10 to 30 euros depending on the year, may well be worth an opus one, worth 200 or more euros, because of overhyped advertisement.
    all that really matters is whether weather, men and the ground all meet together.

    Resveratrol Comes From Grape Skins

    Why not just eat the grapes? Much more fun, and cheaper, than drinking wine.

    Wine

    Thank you. I can now show this to people who look at me strangely when I say that I bought a case of Foche in Ringoes, New Jersey.

    GOP attacks Net Nueutrality under the cover of "Internet Freedom Platform"

    Hey there Jay ,

    I found the story that may sink the GOP and galvanize the same SOPA community against the Republican "Internet Freedom"

    In the best best Republican tradition of of serving up distasteful medicine with a spoonful of Honey the Republican unveiled the seeming "Internet Freedom " aspect of this years GOP platform "

    Link to the full article here : The Daily Call


    Now here is the rattle snake in the bush so to speak :


    "We will remove regulatory barriers that protect outdated techologies and

    business plans from innovation and competition , while preventing legacy

    regulation from interfering with new technologies such as mobile delivery of voice

    and video data as they become crucial components of the Internet ecosystem," said

    the final draft.

    right there hidden in plain view is there plans to attack Net Neutrality . As you know the FCC put into place penetrability rules that have be fiercely opposed earlier this year. they plant to stop that .

    the second part about mobile delivery is all about a multi- tier price structure according to the types of service that you have . voice one price music more money video even more . :(

    I thought that you would want to put this up . this part of the platform has nothing to do with Freedom , unless you are talking about letting the ISP's charge whatever they want .

    It's a fine example of the effects of excessive consumption
