definition of Wikipedia
This is contrasted with a drink served neat – a single, unmixed liquor served without being chilled and without any water, ice, or other mixer. Neat drinks and rocks drinks are often served in a rocks glass but may be served in a shot glass or a cocktail glass.
The term "up" is less ambiguous than "straight up", because sometimes the term "straight up" is used to mean "neat".
The term "straight" is also sometimes ambiguous, as it can be used to mean either "up" or "neat".
There is substantial confusion in the usage of "neat", "straight up", "straight", and "up". In the context of describing ways of serving a drink, all of these mean "served without ice," but some bar patrons and bartenders use them inconsistently.
"Straight" is often used interchangeably with "neat" (in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States). However, "straight" is also often used to refer to a spirit that is in an unmixed state in general, in addition to being used to describe a way of serving it. For example, many Bourbons are identified as "Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey" on their bottling labels, and U.S. Federal law contains a legal definition of the term "straight whiskey". So sometimes "straight" may be used to mean either "straight up" (as defined above) or "neat", and clarification may be needed to determine the exact manner for serving it.
"On the rocks" refers to liquor poured over ice cubes.

Unmixed liquors may be served either neat, up, or on the rocks, with differing conventions. Expensive whisky and other aged liquor is most often served neat, while cheap whisky is usually served on the rocks. Vodka is sometimes served chilled.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
