Wouldn't put it on ice just carry on drinking. he usually wouldn't even take it from the chiller at the bottle store either.
    Straight off the store floor.
    Living in Oz for a while put me off beer.
    I rarely even have one here anymore.

    I stuck with Hahn superdry for a long time. It was Ok but I would always try other stuff.
    Ended up on Coopers red sparkling ale. You can buy it here cheaper than in OZ and usually cheaper than my current favourites from Monteiths. Crazy.

    We could be far worse off (and probably will be sometime in the near future)

    Also brownie points for the M1A1 abrams.
    And Clint Eastwood.

    Hows it going @miketheyank?
    It's going.. just being the unofficial IT guy in the office today.

    You're welcome for Eastwood and the Abrams.

    ...and Macca's.

    Yeah... $8 usd per gallon is gonna hurt, especially during the drive from Auckland to Kurow/Invercargill.

    I'm paying anywhere from $2.50-2.90 usd/gallon and I'm bitching about that.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Have you actually tried any other beers? I’m wondering if you know what the word beer means?

    Yes absolutely, in at least forty countries and they were all lesser.
