Anybody here heard of the brand Bokland before?
It seems to have ceased productions or so? Because I cannot seem to ind it in stores and online searches come up with only pictures of mini collection bottles.

Just strolling down memory lane and remmembered that my first vodka shot was with a peach flavoured vodka of said brand..

This gent appears to be drinking third-rate fruity liquor to play at being lower class. How very droll. I often imbibe swill whilst pretending to be a plebian prole myself.

Hello, /class/. I recently have up menthol cigarettes, because, eventually they would do a number on my dick. Currently I'm smoking "More", and I really can't find my taste. What would you recommend?

Thanks darling for that gauche nonsequitur about you.
You might not give them cancer or anything, but you don't have to blow smoke at people to invoke their disapproval
And don't you dare say you could care less ablut others' approval, because if you are willing to alienate and offend the general populous, no matter how repulsive those kind may be, you are absolutely not a gentleman.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/06/22(Sun)00:56 No. 2816

Been rolling my own for 2+ years now, smoke less(I buy a strong blend so I roll ~4 a day), have better flavor, spend less money, (Also roll pot joints), so I have become very proficient(done 3k+ rolls), I recommend using slow burning papers, and unbleached(for class), as those are thiner and as said burn slower, NO filters, those are for taking away the shittie flavor of regular cigs, a good tobacco deserves to be tasted bare,
I'm a perfectionist, going for a conic shape and smoke in the narrow end, I usually do a ~6cm length cone, with a 1-2mm end(as narrow as posible in one end) and 7-10mm on the other, there are some good youtube videos about rolling conically you should see, also use the paper backwards(this requieres more experience), so when I wet the glue the amount of wasted paper wich is not holding togheter the joint, that usually ends up inside, stays outside of the joint so I can cut it, this improves the taste towards the end, since too much paper also damages the flavor.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/07/04(Fri)02:40 No. 2825

Make some snus from fresh tobacco leaves.

Or buy some premade, It'd be nicer if it was made by you though.

It's stronger, less addictive and healthier than cigarettes.

Smoking sucks.

I was wondering how to create the "perfect" cup of tea, such as how much sugar, milk, water and the order of how to do such.
I shall try every suggestion I get.

Lapsang Soushong is the most excellent blend, if you can get your rolex-encrusted paws on it. I typically add a dash of cream and perhaps grenadine whilst slowly drawing from a Romeo y Julieta cuban. Perfect with Sinatra, a suit, and a lady that you are trying to woo.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/06/09(Mon)08:54 No. 2805

Surely you jest.

Anyway, to answer OP's question, the perfect cup of tea is a fine Assam brewed in 90~95C water for 1:15~1:30, then mostly strained with the last bit of tea discarded.

The idea is to not ruin the tea with excessive tannins (the substance that causes the bitter dryness you feel when you eat an unripened persimon). Brewing for too long or at too high a tempurature will produce that tannin. Excessive pressure will also squeeze out tannin acid, so the last bit of tea in the pot will have a lot of it.

If you do it right, you will get the fine tea flavor without the bitter tannic feeling. If you do it perfectly with good Assam leaves, your tea will taste faintly of honey all on its own.

I agree with the milk first idea. You definitely end up with more of a tea flavour than the slightly tangy boiled milk flavour you get if you put hot water straight onto the milk.

The reason milk-in-second has become a generally accepted way of doing things (despite it producing an inferior brew) is because people tend to brew the tea in the mug rather than in a teapot, the proper way.

Obviously enough then, putting milk in before hot water would mean a tea-bag soaked in cold milk which is a massive no no.

I do mine in a teapot, three minutes, milk in first. Comes out lovely.

Greetings dear gentleman.
I've recently achieved considerable interest in the very fine (and sadly underrated) art of cloud appreciation. I must admit that the very concept was alien to my imagination until I contacted by mere chance the website of the so called "cloud appreciation society" and got in touch with the wonderful ideas of it's founding members.
Sadly, given my current financial situation and the economical politics of my undeveloped country of origin (that include restricted operations with foreign currency and the like), it's quite hard for me to get a membership and finally achieve my own Cloudspotter's Guide to improve my skills and knowledge on this new area of interest.
So, in order not to stole more of your valuable time, I was wondering if any of you happen to have a copy of this book or a link to download one, for I've been unable to find one myself by my personal means of internet search.
Thank you very much for your attention, and more than thanks if you can help me out on this moment of need. In retribution, I attach an amazing picture taken from above of this awesome gift from nature that we rarely take time to contemplate in all of it's magnificence, clouds.

If I were to ever make it big, as a rapper (I rap), or otherwise (e.g. somehow done well in the stock markets and got really famous), I would still be browsing 7chan and 4chan (and all the other fucked up sites) every day

The culture of imageboards characteristically rejects normative morality and what is commonly accepted as "good" taste.

Tell her "we should get married. You in?"

No need to hurl expenses at her when it's really a decision based on emotion (and crude financial benefits).

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/04/08(Tue)19:06 No. 2745

i dont know where you live, if your on the coast you can do this, or just plan a trip to the beach one day, like a road trip or something....you get a bottle and roll up a note that says 'will you marry me' on it, and put the ring around the note, cork the bottle, and give it to a friend or someone and have them put it in the sand along the shore, so the top is sticking out. when you walk along you see the bottle and have her pick it up, and read the note, when she looks at you, you are on your knee.....

Tradition dictates you ask permission from her parents prior to asking her. Doing both at the same time is rather rude. Also, despite not knowing how your relationship is currently, I have to ask: if you're not already spending Christmases together and visiting your collective parents together, is the relationship at the right stage to ask for her hand?

Good day or evening, gentlemen! What are your preferences when it comes musical finery? I'll start:
One of my personal favorites is Berlioz's Symphony Fantastique, of that I've had the pleasure of performing and listening to whenever I am able.

Ah, yes. A quite embarrassing mistake, but I thank you for correcting me without undue reprimand. That aside, I agree with your tastes. Electroswing seems to combine two relatively lively and popular (in their times) genres into an enjoyable third genre. But one cannot forget the roots, and what fine roots indeed.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/04/12(Sat)01:14 No. 2747

Scott Joplin particularly "Solace" and the opera "Treemonisha". also the occasional musical especially shows such as Ragtime and Spring Awakening. Ragtime has incredibly clear and rich orchestrations in the turn of the century style lots of solo instruments and percussion. Spring awakening is much more minimal and even uses rock but only sparingly and does so excellently. Particulary nice is the use of the string quartet with the other instruments in an almost impressionist style. reminds me quite a bit of the debussy string quartet 3rd movement.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/04/18(Fri)21:22 No. 2757

As a gentleman oft pressed with the vicissitudes of life, I lean towards sharp, coarse compositions. Names such as Schnitke and Cowell are usually in order. Prokofiev, in particular, is quite deserving in this category. Of course, amongst polite company and friendly camaraderie I will quote the works of Bach and Chopin as well, as any other proper man of letter would.
