Preserved for historical significance? (1)

smith6174 (986645) | more than 4 years ago | (#33253106)

What are they even thinking saving it for historical significance? Why don't they just enjoy it or sell it off to high bidders? What a waste. Are we saving it for when humans are really screwed during the apocalypse? Are we waiting until we are responsible enough to handle Gizmo-gremlin pets? I personally would be much more excited about drinking the real historical item, rather than a recreation. How are they even going to advertise the replica? "This whiskey tastes as close as we could to a famous historical stash, which we destroyed in an anal-retentive attempt to preserve history."
