I am honored to have made /v/bestof. I am happy I amused you.

I trained to be a Middle Eastern historian. I also like to drink -- a lot.

True story: You can be executed for being drunk in Iran (now). Never mind that the wine shiraz came from Persia. It's still there. It's still drunk. However, in public, the friends of grown men will complain that their obviously drunk friend has been "huffing gas" again. Cuz, you know, huffing's cool.
