    Humphrey Bogart walks into a bar. He's feeling a little seasick and travel weary. What drink does he order?

    hint??


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,617 ✭✭✭✭ OldGoat


    G&T
    Gin, cos of "Rick's Café Américain" the gin joint made famous in the film Casablanca, and tonic because a tonic is a curative.
    But mostly because I have a craving for a G&T.

    I'm older than Minecraft goats.

    Early 1940's would be another clue.

    Some might say that the drink he ordered contained all of the important BGRH food groups. ;)

    A martini?

    I remember it being mentioned in a book as a cure for seasickness.
    I don't see it working tbh.

    I never said it was a cure for seasickness :)

    There's a strong Irish connection in the answer :cool:

    We have a winner! :cool:

    Bogey, as his mates in the pub used to call him, is credited with being one of the celebs who spread the word of this certain drink invented in Foynes Airport (aka, the river Shannon at the time).
    The passengers, having flown transatlantic on PAN-AM's famous flying clippers and ferried ashore, were welcomed with a hot drink of coffee, cream and Irish whiskey.

    The floor is yours brother trout :)

    Just to qualify this hint: The important food groups I was referring to were caffene, sugar, fat and alcohol. :D

    OK ... here's my question, it's a two-parter, and google won't help anyone here.

    How many favourites have I stored in my browser, and what browser do I use?


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,617 ✭✭✭✭ OldGoat


    17:Firefox

    And this weeks lotto numbers are: 12, 17, 34, 37, 146, 292 and 503

    Firefox then..?

    Nope ... think sneakier than that


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 23,078 CMod ✭✭✭✭ Steve


    Dunno about those fruit based browsers..

    You're obviously using a useragent mask to pose as a different browser if the pic I linked was inaccurate. Throwing your forum into the mix would lead to safari on a some sort of I-thing?

    After that, I'm stumped.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,015 ✭✭✭✭ trout


    Not Safari either.

    Some sneaky browsers masquerade as other sneaky browsers, so that sneaky bots and malware get all confused, and also for reasons of general underhanded sneakiness.

    Think two words ... Fire and Fox aren't involved.
