    What about clogs? :p

    You don't need to be Dutch to drink beer (not that I should have to tell you that).

    I meant I want to get drunk with other SP-ers :p

    And I do not drink beer. I drink wine, spirits, lager (real lager, not American gnats urine) and cocoa

    My boss jokingly suggested going to Amsterdam to do some work with one of her collaborators. I may try to convince her we seriously should. Beer's on me, I'll charge it to the research grant as "consumables" :lol:

    No it's not. Lager is lighter. Beer is much different, darker, heavier flavour, stronger taste

    Perhaps you mean ale? The two main styles of beer are ale and lager.

    The 3rd style is what's called beer in the UK. IIRC here's what it would look like:
    Lager: eg. Tennents
    Ale: eg. John Smith
    Beer: eg. Guinness
    Gnat's urine: Bud :p

    (think of "beer" as the darker beers. I think stouts fall under that class)

    Heh. Well, technically Guinness is a porter style of ale, and Bud is an American-style lager. But I suppose that's beside the point; if that's what is the usage in Britain, so be it. :)

    Why is it that seemingly every thread on the Boards eventually gravitates to a discussion about beer? Except, of course, for the thread that is actually about beer, which most recently seems to be about vodka.

    BTA is right. Lager is just the most common type of beer.

    @Ziad: Guinness is a Stout (a type of ale).

    No, that was my point. Stouts fall under "beer", not "ale". The generic term for beer (all 3 classes in the UK) is a "pint" anyway :D
    At least that's what I understood after a few years of living there. If I got it wrong I blame my drunk English friends :p

    Sure, let us know if, and when, your boss wants to go and I'll center the meeting around that.

    Because it is cheaper than vodka, students can buy it, and some of us even like it?

    Unless it's cider.

    1. I'm 1/4inch shy of 5'9" but I've meet a lot of guys who insists I'm 5'10" because they are 2 inches shorter and claim that they are 5'8".
    2. I hate cheese... but do tolerate them from time to time, you know... pizzas.
    3. I love recreational sports like backpacking and mt. biking, never really liked to compete though.
    4. My life just begun last year. If you're wise enough, you'll have no problem guessing my age. Hint? ...a popular saying.
    5. I hate smoking because I never enjoyed watching my dad do it back when I was a kid. And it was great seeing him quit.
    6. I never bought or had sugar (white or brown) at home for over 15 years now.
    7. I love watching movies... except for horror films. I don't believe in paying to get the wits scared out of me.
    8. This January, in a movie thread here in BoM, I found out I have the same birthday as Elvis Presley.
    9. I've been wearing glasses since 6th grade. And I hate dreaming of trying to find my glasses because my dream is blurry.
    10. Been here since Dec. 2001. And yup, another 'lone wolf'.

    [​IMG] Nice thread! I simply cannot resist...

    1) I am six feet tall. Now it's quite neat and all, but nobody wanted to dance with me during the though years of junior high ;).

    2) I was born in Poland, and have been living there since.

    3) I am an Odinist (who refuses to use the term 'asatru' because she disagrees with many of the things the official organization stands for).

    4) I sing. A lot. Mostly European folk songs.

    5) I have an Othala scarified into my left arm. Cut/burned it myself. Still surprised with how even the lines turned out to be. Sorry if you winced, I could not help but brag about it, heheh.

    6) I write quite a lot, fan- and original fiction, but am somewhat shy about most of it.

    7) I have loads, loads of earrings. As in, loads. Have you ever seen the box NWN Diamond Edition comes in? Well... half of it is full.

    8) I consider myself an ethical naturalist. To say 'libertine' would be fine too, yet, it would not cover the whole spectrum of beliefs and moral stances.

    9) I dye my hair red.

    10) I drink only wine - excepting for the mandatory 17th -of - March stout. :)

    1. I'm 187 cm tall, weighing a "mere" 102 kg. The funny thing is that noone would have thought I way that much. I think it just doesn't really show.
    2. I play the trumpet almost obsessively since I was 7 years old. That was 22 years ago.
    3. I'm moderately educated due to my hatred of schools as an institute. I do however, have a good job with lots of future for me. I guess I do have some intelligence then :p
    4. My collegues tease to me for having self-induced autism (no offense to the people who have it!), because of having a real nack/problem with remembring numerical sequences. Even if seen once 5 years ago, I still remember these things. Maybe that's why I remember sheetmusic so damn well :D
    5. I love beer too much and it's a favorite topic with my drinking buddies (that sound rather pathetic actually :p). Most common discussion is on how one beer is as an angel is urinating on your tongue and the other one being as good as nuclear reator fluid.
    6. I HATE arrogant, smart ass people who think they are god but who go crying with their boss/superior/partner/mommy when I tell them the truth. Piss-poor-sissy's! You can't handle the truth!!!
    7. As a lot of Dutch, I've a pretty temperate and sober state of mind (nuchter), although I do believe in aliens :p
    8. I'm not even slightly religious. I find most religions are being used for the wrong things and reasons, although I do respect people who really believe.
    9. I love Sci-fi too much (I'm addicted)

    A warning for the faint of heart or people with stress related problems: LOOK AWAY!

    10. I'm not the reader although I do like reading books on occasion. With this little experience in books and the written word, I shamely admit that: I DID LIKE THE BALDUR'S GATE NOVELS WRITTEN BY PHILIP ATHENS!

    *Drugar packs his things and runs like hell trying to avoid being clubbed to death with hardcover novells by Phillip Athens*

    The hardcover version came out (and I do not mean it admitting to be homosexual:D)? Like, ever? Mine were paperbacks... if memory serves. I gave the volumes away to my friend's brothers about five years ago. For the record, I never liked them. The brothers, id est.

    Jokes aside... I am truly, really really really curious (you can tell greatness of this curiosity by the excessive use of adverbs :D) about what exactly was enjoyable about Athan's writings for you? No sarcasm here. I would really like to know.

    Also, I wonder... would they let anyone into Candlekeep in exchange for one
    of those? After all, it is a more understandable Alaundo. ;)
