Enter the bar, covered in snow and sits down taking off his helmet

There is still good snow outside. But it feels good to rest a little...

The shadowy bartender looks up from cleaning a glass.

Glad we could provide a place to rest a moment, can I get you a drink? Something warm perhaps?

With pleasure! Do you serve hot chocolates? At the ski resort they serve the best I have ever drunk. I like your bar, one of the best region of ns to drink and relax.

Yeah!--That'll teach it to pay its bill once in a while.

Ah, yeah. That's why I was confused! I knew we didn't bow to any authority, least of all some non-immortal government agencies.

Takes a broom and sweeps the invasive species out the door, but every time one is taken care of another two pop up around the bar.

*Sounds of 30 delivery trucks*

Okay boys! Delivery is here! Put 'em down, I can carry them for some extent.

Brocklandia I just need you to sign... Here.

(Each truck contains 10 Vodinə, since it is pretty rare, but also really big.

And it is like... 90% alcohol at its purest. Max is %99.99999 alcohol.)

Certainly!

The shadow pours some chocolate powder into a pot of boiling water and stirs a moment before placing the liquid into a mug. They top it off with whipped cream, covertly eating some themself, before handing the order off to the skier.

Thank you for the praise, enjoy your drink!

Just wheel everything down that hall, second door on the left. Wake Cthulhu up and tell hir you brought an afternoon cocktail.

If you survive and make it back, I'll sign your clipboard.

But of course it exists ! You only have to have skied on many of the world's slopes to know that there is good snow. The one I came from is the best of NationStates: soft, powdery and light. You should come and ski with us, I will show you. We enjoy a climate that preserves snow even in summer.

But thank you. It is almost as good as the one from home!

Do you perhaps have a simple Bengal Spiced tea? No additions nor alterations?

We do indeed have a bengal spiced team, made by dipping a bengal tiger's tail in scalding-hot water. This tends to annoy the tiger, so I'll send it over to your table and let you deal with it.

And Triscuits
But what
May I ask
Happened to the singular 'scuit'?

The singular is "scut." The second "i" in "biscuit" is an accidental misspelling that caught on and became the dominant form of the word. "Scut" itself dropped out of favor because the two pieces of "biscuit" (in other words, "one scut split in two") can be difficult to tell apart from two as-yet-unsplit scuts--and I suppose sellers preferred giving people two halves instead of two wholes.

Consuela de la Morrela wrote:Looks up from cleaning a table...

The Old French word bescuit is derived from the Latin words bis (twice) and coquere, coctus (to cook, cooked), and, hence, means "twice-cooked". This is because biscuits were originally cooked in a twofold process: first baked, and then dried out in a slow oven. This term was then adapted into English in the 14th century during the Middle Ages, in the Middle English word bisquite, to represent a hard, twice-baked product.

The Dutch language from around 1703 had adopted the word koekje ("little cake") to have a similar meaning for a similar hard, baked product. The difference between the secondary Dutch word and that of Latin origin is that, whereas the koekje is a cake that rises during baking, the biscuit, which has no raising agent, in general does not.

So biscuits are by definition "twice cooked" and hard, and cookies by definition are actually little cakes.

In the United States and some parts of English Canada, a "biscuit" is a quick bread, somewhat similar to a scone. They are wrong! Those are NOT biscuits, but scones, precisely because they aren't twice cooked and are soft.

The Triscuit is a brand name. That name has no relation to any number, or how often it is cooked...

The Shredded Wheat Company began producing Triscuit in 1903 in Niagara Falls, New York. The name Triscuit is believed by some to have come from a combination of the words "electricity" and "biscuit". At least one early advertisement boasted that Triscuits were "Baked by Electricity,” claiming they were "the only food on the market prepared by this 1903 process."

Thus the undefined word of "scuit" or "cuit" would necessarily be the same as a cookie, being as it's etymology is derived from being (and meaning) 'cooked', just like "koekje" and "cookie" relate to the German word; "Kuchen" (cake), and "Kochen" which means to cook.

I had actually wondered if the reason biscuit was called that way because generally it had two halves! Thanks! More nickels for you!

The bar is asleep. I'm gonna go back upstairs.

Bye. I'll be back later. I hope no crazy disaster happens while I nap...

He and his equally ferocious buddies have been loitering in the Jungle Room. That's the back dining room, usually reserved for special occasions, like when an entire troop of Cub Scouts comes in. Of course, just calling it a "dining room" doesn't indicate who will be doing the dining, does it? The tigers all look very well-fed, if you ask me.

Actually, in addition to being fluent in German, I'm above average in the penile department too. Now stop talking about my dong, because I'm not showing it to you.

Hold on *punches table, eats a skittle, and commits a war crime in that order* so we plan disasters around their nap?

Naps are a new thing. Wut. How have you been planning this if naps are something I started literally yesterday?

Apparently, but I'm down for whatever. In fact, I will sleep in the air like a haunted doll. To scare all of you.
