Yardarm & Omniglot

It was almost a year ago for Mixology Monday that I posted about the Main Brace tiki drink. The loveliness of the drink aside, the post contained a bit of history on the nautical significance of the mainbrace and its importance in historic drinking terminology.

A gent named Simon Ager over at the Omniglot blog explains a bit more about the relationship between booze and sea vessel anatomy with the yardarm. Simon's websites Omniglot and Omniglot blog are rich online resources for anyone interested in language(s), and I highly recommend them. Check out his post here.
