Good day gentlemen. On this day I wish to ask your preferred literature. While I love to indulge in a great book, I favor reading classic Gothic literature. I love books similar to Jane Eyre, and The Castle of Otranto.

20th century south american fiction does it for me. Borges, Marquez, Cortazar.

Gents, what do you call a night?
No sex or illicit activities.

For me, it's:
-Bohren & Der Club of Gore (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuKVDJXUQnc)
-Montecristo Cigar
-Macallan Scotch with ice
-Shadowy, dark building silhouettes on the city skyline, that contrast with the mellow light of the streets

Girls, do you women assume you are asking them out when you ask them to hang out or to get coffee? (self.AskWomen)submitted just now by anne1osognosiaOr is just like it could be either and is the reasoning like, 'oh i'd be open to both, so i'd say yes', but if they don't want to date you then 'i'd better avoid it in case its a date' or something else? also, what percentage of guys would you say you would accept and ask out from?

Aren&!pfiVGYw7io 14/08/30(Sat)02:14 No. 2859

A better question is "would the paparazzi see it as a date if they saw to co-stars at a coffee shop together?"

Not only does the young lady have to worry about whether the person offering the invitation will see it as a date, they have to wonder who else will see them at the local coffee shop. If you have concerns about it being a date, invite friends who can back up whatever the real story is. I, however, do not drink coffee, because the finer things in life keep me awake far better than caffeine.

As I am fairly young individual, who is also very introverted person, I can not say that I have any formal authority when it comes to any matter not related to myself.

If you're an aviator, I suggest:

Why not own an aircraft that is not only a pleasurable, visceral experience to pilot. But also demonstrate your excellent taste in aviation design.

Anybody here heard of the brand Bokland before?
It seems to have ceased productions or so? Because I cannot seem to ind it in stores and online searches come up with only pictures of mini collection bottles.

Just strolling down memory lane and remmembered that my first vodka shot was with a peach flavoured vodka of said brand..

Hello, /class/. I recently have up menthol cigarettes, because, eventually they would do a number on my dick. Currently I'm smoking "More", and I really can't find my taste. What would you recommend?

Thanks darling for that gauche nonsequitur about you.
You might not give them cancer or anything, but you don't have to blow smoke at people to invoke their disapproval
And don't you dare say you could care less ablut others' approval, because if you are willing to alienate and offend the general populous, no matter how repulsive those kind may be, you are absolutely not a gentleman.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/06/22(Sun)00:56 No. 2816

Been rolling my own for 2+ years now, smoke less(I buy a strong blend so I roll ~4 a day), have better flavor, spend less money, (Also roll pot joints), so I have become very proficient(done 3k+ rolls), I recommend using slow burning papers, and unbleached(for class), as those are thiner and as said burn slower, NO filters, those are for taking away the shittie flavor of regular cigs, a good tobacco deserves to be tasted bare,
I'm a perfectionist, going for a conic shape and smoke in the narrow end, I usually do a ~6cm length cone, with a 1-2mm end(as narrow as posible in one end) and 7-10mm on the other, there are some good youtube videos about rolling conically you should see, also use the paper backwards(this requieres more experience), so when I wet the glue the amount of wasted paper wich is not holding togheter the joint, that usually ends up inside, stays outside of the joint so I can cut it, this improves the taste towards the end, since too much paper also damages the flavor.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/07/04(Fri)02:40 No. 2825

Make some snus from fresh tobacco leaves.

Or buy some premade, It'd be nicer if it was made by you though.

It's stronger, less addictive and healthier than cigarettes.

Smoking sucks.

The perfect cup of tea Ameture Englishman 12/08/13(Mon)11:28 No. 1410 [Reply]

I was wondering how to create the "perfect" cup of tea, such as how much sugar, milk, water and the order of how to do such.
I shall try every suggestion I get.

Lapsang Soushong is the most excellent blend, if you can get your rolex-encrusted paws on it. I typically add a dash of cream and perhaps grenadine whilst slowly drawing from a Romeo y Julieta cuban. Perfect with Sinatra, a suit, and a lady that you are trying to woo.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/06/09(Mon)08:54 No. 2805

Surely you jest.

Anyway, to answer OP's question, the perfect cup of tea is a fine Assam brewed in 90~95C water for 1:15~1:30, then mostly strained with the last bit of tea discarded.

The idea is to not ruin the tea with excessive tannins (the substance that causes the bitter dryness you feel when you eat an unripened persimon). Brewing for too long or at too high a tempurature will produce that tannin. Excessive pressure will also squeeze out tannin acid, so the last bit of tea in the pot will have a lot of it.

If you do it right, you will get the fine tea flavor without the bitter tannic feeling. If you do it perfectly with good Assam leaves, your tea will taste faintly of honey all on its own.

I agree with the milk first idea. You definitely end up with more of a tea flavour than the slightly tangy boiled milk flavour you get if you put hot water straight onto the milk.

The reason milk-in-second has become a generally accepted way of doing things (despite it producing an inferior brew) is because people tend to brew the tea in the mug rather than in a teapot, the proper way.

Obviously enough then, putting milk in before hot water would mean a tea-bag soaked in cold milk which is a massive no no.

I do mine in a teapot, three minutes, milk in first. Comes out lovely.
