Well,…I lost another bet. When will I learn not to bet fine whisky! – but as always, I am a sore loser. I lost this bet to my good friend – not being willing to just “pay up” – I ordered 35 little airplane bottles of Makers Mark, built a cabinet (that you can’t open) and epox’ed them to the case, ( I even used his own Black Walnut to build the case). Photo’s are poor, but you get the idea….when will I learn,…when will I learn….

gotta bet him that you can fully enclose X number of ounces – still in the bottle – in a case only 2” deep. ;)

I love it. I wish I was quick enough to come up with ideas like that.

It reminds me of a story I heard once. A guy gave his brother an incredibly ugly pair of plaid pants for Christmas. Next Christmas, the brother gave them back to his brother, only this time, enclosed to make them very difficult to get them out. This went on for years, each time woth more and more “creative” ways to package the pants. Each time more difficult to get them out in order to repackage them the next time. The contest finally ended when one brother gave them back to his brother in the glove compartment of a car. Only problem was, the car had been crushed into a nice neat little cube.

You may have started something with this one.

That’s fun, but you are a sore loser :)
