    The first confirmed written record of whisky comes from 1405 in Ireland. In the Irish Annals of Clonmacnoise in 1405, the first written record of whisky attributes the death of a chieftain to “taking a surfeit of aqua vitae” at Christmas.

    The Irish Rule!!!!!!

  2. No. I claim the title of Supreme Overlord!

    The Supreme Overlord is a Detroit Lions fan? That is an oxymoron second only to “honest politician.”

  4. Ever heard of Cain and Abel? It’s all complex man….
