Members of the mess may also be singled out for some good-natured ribbing and teasing. In some units, members go out of their way to be picked on, often wearing obvious uniform violations, such as crowns, tiaras, eye-patches, bowties and cummerbunds of the wrong color, and other items that have no place on any military uniform (although it is common for US Artillerymen to wear red socks, suspenders and even bowties, in a nod to tradition at the expense of uniform regulations). Some will attempt to leave sabotaging evidence on or around others they wish to see fined, so care must be taken to not be the butt of a joke.
oh and as for decanters, lead free glass may be okay, however that depends entirely on how much lead is in the glass, and it can still fuck with flavor. the best would be something like borosilicate which is laboratory glass, aka pyrex. or quartz crystal. both are used for the consumption of medical weed, and obviously non medical however quartz is used because it doesnt leech anything bad for you specifically because quartz is used for blow torching and then vaporizing hash oils off of, meaning at room temp its even more stable and wont leech. search dabs or bho or hashoil dabs on youtube if you are curious about the vaporization thing, and quartz bangers or nails are what the piece that gets blow torched is called. quartz can also be worked like glass just needs a higher temperature however glass artists around the world are doing bongs pipes and nails/bangers out of it and borosilicate and other artwork, so finding someone making a decanter or some sort of bottle shouldnt be hard and if not a glass blower making these items would easily be able to make you a decanter and have a ground airtight top, or a flame polished air tight top if you prefer. plus going that route also means one off decanter, though it will cost more it would be a one off and colors can be done so help preserve the whiskey or working done to put designs on the bottle.
“The keys to 2016,” said Barnier, “are yield – some vineyards are 50 hl/ha, but some are just 5 hl/ha – and ripeness. Many growers were so afraid of losing the little fruit they had that they picked too early. This, though, was a vintage where you had to wait. We started on September 27 th and we are honestly very happy with what we got.” The very high-sited Les Baudines yielded just 10 hl/ha this year, and this white wine is beautifully crafted – cream and flowers, with close-knit, sappy flavours of great poise and purity. 91-93
