    Not a lot of call for that in these parts.

    Really? I thought it was a main ingredient in US beer.

    I agree that the taste can get confused with the content.

    “Each smart brick is an electrical analogous computer. A building made of such bricks will be a massive-parallel computing processor.”

    Analagously of course. Tee Hee.

    So we're to expect Newcastle to take the lead in supercomputing? Tee Hee.

    Why would you want to do that? Can't get water that has not been through you? Need beer THAT bad? Seems like something Sean would invent if he knew enough to invent something other than silly lies.

    Other way around.

    Well...a comparison with real beer seems to indicate a problem of some sort.

    But to be nice - it is actually possible to get drinkable beer in the US if you try. The real problem is that the worldwide marketing efforts of the likes of Anheuser impose a kind of Gresham's law on countries where until recently there was a vibrant appreciation for decent beer. I have seen people in what appear to be perfectly respectable pubs in the UK, drinking Labatts lager out of the bottle.

    I enjoy snobbery as much as the next snob, but drinking the likes of Budweiser out of a bottle is just a price too much to pay.

    Isn't that the wrong way round?

    Around here we use beer to make urine.

    I think that was MY's observation too. Mine was that it appears to be a closed cycle.
