Are we not Zerks?

#1 Post by Warren Taranow » April 15th, 2019, 6:30 pm

I'm currently enjoying a novel (Seveneves by Neal Stephenson). I just came across a section where he describes "Zerks", a branch of military special services, contracted from "Berserkers". I'm might be partial to "wine zerk" rather than "wine geek" or "Berserker."

Cheers,

Warren

It's not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would be doing it if it were easy.
