Directly from the website. And stop bad-mouthing our government! It's not stupid government, it's stupid president!
Government/president...same thing. In any case, beer is much more important than any government or government wanker (president/prime minister).

BTW, Heineken tastes like water....it has NO taste. It's a beer for kids.
Heineken may have been a good beer once but now, you'd be better off drinking kerosene (kero is also cheaper & has more flavour).

Have you actually tried international beers that haven't been adulterated by your government? For example, Thailand (where I live) has a beer called 'Chang' (elephant). This beer is also sold in Australia but due to Australian government "controls", this beer tastes nothing like the same beer that is sold in Thailand (the Australian government has weakened it from 6.4% Alcohol to 5%). It is possible to buy "unadulterated" beers in Australia but you will pay an arm & a leg for them.

It's much easier to do with stranded wire than solid wire. Just make sure you count the strands and divide them equally, or else you could wind up with one 7 1/2 awg and one 8 1/2 awg wire.


Thanks for the laugh nate!

You have it all wrong.

There is only ONE good bear, and that is sold in Canada (maybe other countries) but I have never seen it in the states...

Kill Kenny.


As far as I know, it's avalible in Ireland and Canada.

OK I have to jump in here. I live in the United States of America. Here in the US we live under what we call the free enterprise system. Free Market it's called in some places. Our government adulterates nothing. Our government is not in the beer business. I think you are mistaking us for Russia or one of those other socialist countries. In my part of the US, we take our beer drinking very seriously. We don't give a hoot what kind of beer we drink. We just drink beer. We are free to drink what we like. After 50 beers, they start to taste the same anyway. So go ahead and drink your yuppie beers and brag that this one is better than that one. And while you debate, we will keep right on drinking. And if you keep on flapping your jaws, we will drink your share too. If you will come here to visit, I will not only introduce you to America, I will introduce you to professional class beer drinking.

Sorry John but methinks that you are a "puppet" if you think that your government doesn't control what comes into the country.

For example, Australia is not as "control freak" as America is....particularly after the previous Prime Minister was voted out ( that little prick Howard). For many years, I had assumed the strength & the flavour of imported beers to be true to their origins as I tasted them in Amstralia. Now that I have lived in 3 other countries besides Amstralia (Ausmerica), I'm more than happy to say that I am pleasantly surprised with the realisation that beers imported into Ausmerica must conform to Ausmerican Standards. The sad & disgusting result is......a totally different beer controlled by your/my government.

Unless you are sure that your government does not interfere with beers, you will possibly never know what beer from another country tastes like.
