In fact I'm struggling to think of even one case where the name of a TLD actually is the best site in it's category? is possibly the best online chess site around.

Also, it is easier to remember when telling your friend about "" as opposed to "".

Is Jack Daniels Old No. 7 the Premium fuel?

Jack Daniels is Tennessee whiskey, not bourbon, and any drunk from Kentucky will fight you over that. Old No. 7 isn't exactly premium anyway, try Gentleman Jack or something next time. Jim Beam is probably the most common bourbon, but you'll want something more like Maker's Mark if you're going premium.
