Last week’s ADG vs. The World category was “beverages.” We were looking for a drink that’s good for your bones, triggers “cenosillicaphobia” when it runs out, was illegal in Iceland until 1989, and was “pooh poohed” as barely-alcoholic by the Russians until 2013. No, it’s not vodka-flavored absinthe-milk! (eeew.)Tweet
Welcome to week five of ADG vs. The World. Last week, we were looking for a country that hosts the Wife Carrying World Championships, downs the most coffee, is the most democratic (as of 2012), and has done all this despite only being an independent country since 1918.Tweet
Last week’s ADG vs. The World was downright Presidential. We were looking for the U.S. President who had his gallstones removed WITHOUT anesthesia or sterilization (yikes!), signed a peace treaty between Mexico and the U.S., was the ninth pick of the Democratic Party delegates, and served only one term.Tweet
Three days after my seventh birthday, I witnessed the most compelling commercial ever; one that offered a product that would change my life, or at least my Saturday mornings, for the next three years. It took the form of a 30-minute animated production (with its own meta-commercial breaks) for a series of toys by Mattel—He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. That product franchise would go on to create over two-billion dollars in revenue for Mattel over the next several years.Tweet
Here at ADG, we love games. From food contests to our infamous costume awards, you’ll find a healthy spirit of competition within our walls. For the past several years, we have had a friendly bingo competition played through our daily internal newsletter. Every weekday, we would draw a bingo ball and note it somewhere in our internal daily news. ADGers would mark off a bingo card, with the winning player securing a coveted reserved parking spot until the next bingo game.Tweet
What better way to spend the new year and celebrate another great 365 days together as a team than at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery? Did you know that this is the only Guinness location in the United States? Right here in little old Halethorpe, MD! We learned that and much more on our tour of the brewery; then we enjoyed some pints, tunes, and grub upstairs. Hey, maybe you’ll join us next year – check out our open positions.Tweet
