Rootbeer – Maine Root Sarsaparilla

Maine Root Sarsaparilla Well defined licorice tone, otherwise nice and mellow. Would definitely recommend to others, but not to my taste.

Rootbeer – Oldtown

I thought it would be fun and useful to keep some notes on the root beer I try out. Oldtown Rootbeer Company Very birch-y flavor, nice bite. A touch of sweetness from the honey. Would definitely buy again.

Diversion

A little Python snippet, good for a diversion. I couldn’t fit it into a tweet though: s=[];op=dict((o,eval(‘lambda a,b:b%sa’%o)) for o in ‘+-*/%’) while not any(s.append(op[w](s.pop(),s.pop())if w in op else float(w)) for w in raw_input().split()): print ‘=’,s[-1] Just a simple 4-function RPN calculator, accepting input from console: 1 = 1.0 2 2 + = 4.0 1 …
