      •  On the Trans Siberian Railroad Beijing- Berlin (3+ / 0-)

        Leaving Beijing I bought two bottles of (Chinese!) brandy, ten pounds of walnuts and ten pounds of dried apricots, some cheese and chocolates, two loaves of bread.

        We traveled for a day until we crossed into Russia, where the staff of the train changed from Chinese to Russian.  I had a sleeping compartment by myself.  

        The new Russian porter came in, on the job, and I motioned for him to have a drink with me.  He pulled out a water glass, filled it to the top with my brandy and quaffed it, chugging it like a frat boy chugging a beer at a toga party.

        I, a native Milwaukeean, (I used to have an "I Closed Wolski's" bumper sticker on my car) was shocked by that one.  

        Lewis Black aside, nobody can keep up with the Russians.

        This aggression will not stand, man.
