Helpful Hints – How to Hide Something from Yourself

There are times when it is beneficial to forget where you put something. No, I’m not talking about your car keys when you’ve had a few too many at a friend’s house. I’m talking about serious things that could be used against you in a court of law, or the secret government plans you stole off a dead Russian, or a really good bottle of Scotch.

You need to hide these things because, let’s face it, you can’t trust you!

Up until now it has been impossible to actually forget where you put the thing because, try as you might, the more you try to forget where you put it, the more you think about where it is.

Fortunately, we at DMG Labs have developed a perfect method of hiding something from yourself. In the interest of science, we have included detailed instructions here: How To Hide Something From Yourself.

    What You Need to Stock Your Bar

    Step 1

    Stocking your bar usually starts off with having a short conversation with yourself.

     

    You can do it the way we do it; talking out loud while sitting at the back of the bus. Or you can do it silently by yourself. Whatever.

     

    During this conversation, decide what drinks you like the most and make sure you always have the stuff to make them on hand. IOW, if your name is Jeffrey Lebowski, then all you need is some cream, a bottle of cheap Vodka, and some Kahlua.

     

    Step 2

    Put together the basic components of most other drinks. This will usually require a little more money, and you might want to build it up over time. Here is a short list of the staples most any bar includes:

     

    Liquors and Spirits

    • Gin
    • Vodka
    • Tequila (White and Dark)
    • Rum (Light and Dark)
    • Vermouth (Extra Dry and Sweet)
    • Whiskey
    • Scotch
    • Brandy/Cognac
    • Beer

    Fillers, Liqueurs, and Flavoring Agents

    • Triple Sec
    • Grenadine
    • Bitters
    • Cream
    • Sugar
    • Lemon Juice
    • Lime Juice
    • Orange Juice
    • Various Sodas (Cola, Club Soda, and Lemon Lime at least)

    If you buy “good” liquor (that’s the stuff on the middle shelf), then properly stocking your bar will probably cost you about $350.

     

    If $350 is looking like it’s too similar to your week’s pay, then look for your liquor on the bottom shelf – that will bring your cost down to under $200.

     

    If $350 is looking more like an hour’s worth of pay, then you can probably look for your liquor on the top shelf.
