If it's part of your identity, Commander, which I suspect it is, then fine. I ain't gonna get into Mary Jane for the same reasons. But if it really is just down to taste, you've got a BBS full of people, well, a BBS with people that can steer you into something you might like.

Commander still hasn't answered about what kind of alcohol he tried that one time.

What evasiveness? Twenty-five years ago I tried an alcoholic beverage and did not like it. It was of the class of "spirits" as it was not wine or beer, other than that I don't remember what it was. I have tried other foods cooked or prepared with some form of alcohol and did not like them. Being unable to remember what the one drink you had over a generation ago that you disliked is not evasive.

I was just kidding around, my friend: you have been very forthright with your story regarding not enjoying the taste of alcohol.

...


... Actually, there was this whole other piece to my joke about how sometimes it takes you a little bit to get to what is asked of you- but. BUT. I mean it all in good fun.

In his autobiography, the late Howard Jarvis - the co-author of the 1978 California Proposition 13 that reduced property taxes - tells how the police tried to frame him for a DUI in order to smear him and get people to vote against the initiative - points out someone slipped vodka into his drink at a party.

He claimed vodka has no smell and no taste. If I had tried such a thing I'm so sensitive I suspect I would taste it.

That is pretty funny. Kids today lose their MINDS regarding DUIs, where as for our generation while it wasn't great, it was not a big deal. We recognized that it was mainly an attempt by the government and fascists to get us into the system, kids today believe you must literally be the Devil to even think about it. (Which, of course, is a product of circumstances - how many DUIs that went on the 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s would not have happened if someone had invented a mobile computer and something like Uber and Lyft? I don't count taxis due to the incredible costs and terrible service.)

Vodka has very little smell or "taste", in terms of flavor, but anyone would definitely know if it was in their beverage, because it stings like... well, like alcohol.

In the late 1970s and middle 1980s there were no computer crime laws on the books anywhere. I look back fondly on some of the stunts I pulled, that were not nasty, destructive, or malicious, but if they happened today would be serious felonies punishable by years in jail.

My favorite thing about all my old computer stories is when people come along and say "THAT'S NOT HOW IT HAPPENED" and proceed to tell me some weird, unfamiliar version of the story that's probably much closer to the truth. Then I go on telling my version(s) because they are much better stories. And also I am usually cool in my version(s).

A week in jail with nothing to do but play Star Trek sounds like the greatest vacation I could ask for right now.
