Here is a link to a very plausible origin of "86." Chumley's is still there
in The Village and the back entrance still exists. In my post speakeasy days
as a drinker there, you could go in that back door after 4 AM when all New
York bars were supposed to close.

Bill and I have been ' discussing this'. I posited that it was possibly
rhyming slang . 86ed = fixed .... as in, 'I fixed him good'. You told us
what I means.
Now derivation please ?
