Ooooooo, nope.

It's Absynth that was requested,
BIIIIIIG difference.

Back to the stock room you go.


Edit: Oz, if you spoil the newbies they will never learn.

I might need some extra help with this one, sdog


the back room

Absynth is a commercial, proprietary software synthesizer, currently in its 4th generation, available on the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS platforms. Developed by Native Instruments GmbH, it combines a range of traditional synthesis techniques (subtractive) and modern (granular, sample-based) to create complex sounds and timbres. It may be used either as a stand-alone program or as a plugin within digital audio workstation (DAW) software such as Logic Pro or Cubase. Absynth is compatible with all major formats of plug-ins: VST, Audio Units, RTAS, DXi, etc.



Absinthe originated in the canton of Neuchâtel in Switzerland. It achieved great popularity as an alcoholic drink in late 19th- and early 20th-century France, particularly among Parisian artists and writers. Due in part to its association with bohemian culture, absinthe was opposed by social conservatives and prohibitionists. Charles Baudelaire, Paul Verlaine, Arthur Rimbaud, Vincent van Gogh, Oscar Wilde, and Aleister Crowley were all notorious "bad men" of that day who were (or were thought to be) devotees of the Green Fairy. Absinthe was portrayed as a dangerously addictive psychoactive drug.

Actually I need to stand corrected.

Absinthe IS the original drink which is illegal in the US.
Distillers sold Absynth in the US as a cheap and horrible tasting imitation.

I was wrong.
I assume it's the anesthesia.

Hey Oz -

Please allow me to share some of my Maker's Mark abundance with you, Ian M was kind enough to give me my first bottle as compensation for being ignored when I joined in the fun here, and Dingbat then set me up with a case -- and thanks to her skills and generosity I can now offer you a shot and a bottle to tide you through the rest of your Ozzie day.




Cheers!
TWISI

I'm sure it was just the anesthesia.

I didn't know they had marketed a mock absinthe here in the U.S. Blech.

Here's the fake: Absente (not Absynth)

Here's a short history and current status: Absinthe

Here's the real stuff: Absynthe

The reason for all the spelling confusion is because of the different countries where it is made.

Much appreciated! Here, try a small glass of absinth:

I'll take it.
I'm sure it will go great with my earlier anesthetic.


Edit: I don't feel good.

Oh this is just like the real game of soccer -- I mean, 'British Kickball'.

I'm constantly asking :

"has it started??"
"are they playing yet??"
"are they still just running around warming up??"





Had to be said.

Feel better Schro, sorry if it was the absinth.

A quick vertical scan of this webpage made me drunk. Not that I'm complaining, this is a pub afterall


One quick question (OT): Am I allowed to comment on other peoples' debate threads once they're over? I'd have a couple of issues to wave my stick at...

Yes sure you're allowed to anything, within the T&C of course. I think all of us like to hear comments about our debates!

It's a little frowned upon to comment, in an ongoing debate, in ways that might give one side or another any advantage.

As to debates that have been completed, but are still awaiting the judges' decision, I don't know. I'd imaging the judges read this thread, too, but whether they'd be swayed or not is another question. I think MemoryShock will fill us in on the etiquette there.

Welcome to the Pub! Coffee, please, double-strong, high-altitude Panamanian if you have it.

First things first...there is no such thing as 'Off Topic' in the Fight Club Pub. Period. This is where we let off steam from the at times draining experience of researching and arguing...


Now...your question...Absolutely you can post comments to debate threads once they have completed and have been judged.



Edit to Add: Pretty much everything Ian posted...

Hey here's an idea -- after debate threads are completed, they're 'unlocked' for comment by other fighters, right? Not that there's usually much in-depth analysis that happens then, but what if they were also unlocked for comment by members without the 'Fighter' tag, and an appropriate mod-edited comment placed at the top of the OP, indicating that? I'm sure there's been some frustrated members who have composed reaction-posts to debate threads, when seen on the recent posts page, who then get that feedback eaten by the 'sorry, you cant post here' message box of doom...
