I discovered a while back that I share the same name as a writer for The Simpsons, which very closely mirrors what I do here.
Sideshow Bob?

My brother is coming over tonight, so I needed to boost supply in anticipation of mass consumption.

LOL! You guessed it.

Saturday morning haircut and juice store run paid off. Score!
Mm Hmm. Mmmmm Hmm. This is exactly the sort of stuff going on my spreadsheet pivot table 'Best Places to Summer in Retirement'.

Here I have a few prepaid bottles of scotch 🥃 just waiting to be picked up. I love having good stuff just lying in wait.

You're going to need booze if you want to summer retire in NY--
Or you were already intoxicated when you came up with that thought.

They were the last of each bottle in the store, but I have a suspicion that the "new" last bottles were placed on the shelf shortly after my purchase and departure.
Either way, I've enjoyed both before so there was no guesswork. I haven't had, let alone laid eyes on a bottle of Weller in at least three years.

I wish places like totalwine.com would ship to NY

4 columns are dedicated to all the 'spirit colors' (all very holistic I assure you), and from the looks of your scores it puts your nek-o-the-woods in high favor. But to your point I do some of my best work in front of the computer. And I mean besides that.

And I wish any place anywhere would ship to Missouri.

Fun fact about Whistle Pig is that all of their whiskey is distilled in Canada.

They have a farm in Vermont and eventually want to be "farm to glass- where they grow everything that goes into the whiskey on their farm. This includes the grains and even the oak trees used to make their own barrels. Until they get to that point, they just use Canadian rye.

Interesting read. It looks like they purchased a stockpile of Canadian blending whiskey to get their business started...

I recommend "Neat - The story of Bourbon" on AmazonPrime. It's an interesting watch.

Initial Knee-Jerk:
Until at least a week searching reviews, records, specs, complaints...., I'm defaulting to Nope, not yet. Nice concept, but my immediate flinch to "No" is the vector of angular force in a position where the overall car is not perfectly parallel to the ground (and the ground of course being perfectly level as well).

The vertical leg (height) would have to always be kept lower than half the total length of the base for me to be comfortable under there. As it is, that means it's already higher than my comfort without even extending the mast as it's currently built. And I would be tempted to just get two complete sets for front and rear and ALWAYS keep both ends the same level.

Again, crafty inexpensive get-up, if bulletproofed against tipping over.

[EDIT]
Flash-,
I left all that intact up there for reference. But. Yes, a big But. Afterward I then watched the vid and ordered it anyway. For the price, I'm going to test it only as a replacement for my big (heavy-ass) Walker/Lincoln just to get the car in the air faster and easier, and then use my 6-ton stands at all 4 corners anyway. I'll likely never use the adjustable individual stands. Nice find and lead.

That's my gut instinct: Interesting idea, no way in blue blazes would I get underneath that or would I risk the damage to the underbody of my car using it. I am a little surprised that it's cleared for sale.

I just can't even think of crawling under a car with those. You get what you pay for. I paid about twice that for my pair of torin aluminum jack stands.
