 +===== Origin in Geek Culture =====
 +<​blockquote>//"​It is a curious fact, and one to which no one knows quite how much importance to attach, that something like 85% of all known worlds in the Galaxy, be they primitive or highly advanced, have invented a drink called jynnan tonnyx, or gee-N’N-T’N-ix,​ or jinond-o-nicks,​ or any one of a thousand or more variations on the same phonetic theme. The drinks themselves are not the same, and vary between the Sivolvian “chinanto/​mnigs” which is ordinary water served at slightly above room temperature,​ and the Gagrakackan “tzjin-anthony-ks” which kills cows at a hundred paces; and in fact the one common factor between all of them, beyond the fact that the names sound the same, is that they were all invented and named before the worlds concerned made contact with any other worlds."//​

 +Gin and tonic ("G and T" in professional circles) is a gentleman'​s drink, and as such, we have no truck with it. [[Rig]] encourages others to drink gin neat, like God intended. ​ Slightly more refined individuals will enjoy this grog.
