Dalgona Coffee, Anyone?

Dalgona coffee videos have been making rounds for quite some time now. Everyone coming up with their own version of this two layered coffee. One "Real Man" laughed at all  these sissies making coffee and came up with a rudimentary layering of whisky on water. Well here's something even better for the "Lazy MAN" (or for that matter Lazy Lady - I don't believe in gender bias). Just carefully pour yourself a shot glass full of Sheridan.

Just for your info: Sheridan is a just another Irish Coffee "taste-a-like". But it is uniquely packaged as a separate dark coffee-Irish whisky mixture and a white cream based liqueur in a single bottle with two compartments with two separate openings. It is produced by Thomas Sheridan and Sons Distillery w

The New Age Great Compression

Just putting down a few thoughts on the after-effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic. Well sure the pandemic is far from over and experts are claiming that there might be a resurgence of infections once the summer gets over in the Northern Hemisphere, but I just wanted to take look at what would be the impact of this pandemic on the global economy.

Is it going to be a recession. Well, yes in a way there will be a recession. Due to all the various lockdowns across the world, most businesses are forced to shut shop. Other than basic necessities, everything else is either not available or not in demand. So all in all demand is low and supply even lower - economic downturn.

But what do you think will happen once the the pandemic starts to lose its grip on the human race. Suddenly people will be free to leave their homes. They will want to go back to their jobs. Business owners will be free to open up. All that pent up demand will start to show, and they will gladly take the people who want jobs. People get jobs, they get salary and they have ways and means to spend it on things other than necessities. And we slowly start tottering back to normalcy.

So here we have a GREAT RECESSION in a very short time and as soon as the pandemic blows over, GREAT RECESSION out in a very short time (Please take this line with a pinch of salt, its only for rhetoric. I am not an economic or a health expert). All the effects of a Recession in a compressed format. Somewhat like a T20 cricket match. This is what can be called a True New Age Great Compression.

Please note: The Great Compression is not a term coined by me. Please google it to get more details.
