...just the opposite of what you expected?

Well, it just happened.

VooDoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale.

My opinion -- it tastes like pig****.

That force grip adapter thingy for glocks. Had high expectations but sold it quickly. Didn't do anything for me. I know lots of guys swear by them, however.

My beer disappointment...

Wheach

by Ofallon brewery.

Peach wheat beer.

I thought it would be refreshing ice cold when the temps were hitting 100 this summer.

I took two sips.

I hear it is pretty good. I have never tried it myself. It is something of a tradition around here for officers who have killed someone in a shooting to drink that on the anniversary of their shooting.

I'm the same way. I heard a lot of people rave about Arrogant Basterd (misspelled so it won't get *'d out :tongueout:), but I had to dump half a bottle because I just couldn't drink it.

OTOH, a lot of people hate Guinness but it's one of the few beers I actually really enjoy.

http://trans-americas.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Mount-Rushmore_from-Custer-SP.jpg


All the pics are close telephoto shots making the heads look huge and impressive. But they're only medium sized, and they were at the time building the new visitor center, so you couldn't get much closer than the parking lot. Huge letdown. Not that what's there isn't cool in its own teeny way, but my expectations had been poorly set.

By contrast, the nearby Crazy Horse monument is on a truly epic scale.

Huge +1. Definitely a let down. In my opinion not worth the trip to see it. Much better in photos. But the view of the black hills from the site is incredible.

When we went we were able to get pretty close so it was ok.

You are absolutely correct on Crazy Horse! It is amazing! I just hope I live long enough to see it completed.

I went to see Chris Cornell do an unplugged concert last year. Could have been one of the best performances I've ever seen, but it turned out to be the worst concert I have ever been to. Nobody told the audience that you can't really be drunk and loud at an acoustic show. Couldn't hear a thing over the crowd.
