Re: Things you've always wanted to know......

A quick Google produced the following disappointingly vague answer: Most computational neuroscientists tend to estimate human storage capacity somewhere between 10 terabytes and 100 terabytes, though the full spectrum of guesses ranges from 1 terabyte to 2.5 petabytes. (One terabyte is equal to abo...

You should try a cherry lambic (kriek beer). They're really nice and not too sweet at all. Aud Beersel's Aude Kriek is probably the best cherry lambic out there.
Too sour. Stick to Liefmans.

Re: Boilers

Can only provide info on what we use. Installed (or a Corgi man did) a Vaillant combi boiler when we moved in just over 20 years ago. Still going but we have paid for service cover and it has broken down a few times. Just about every part has been replaced over that time. The condenser went just bef...

Popped into Mooro’s after the game on Saturday. Reasonably empty and walked around to find somewhere to sit but every table had a sign on it indicating that it was reserved. Walked out.

Re: Cultural Appropriation .

I think that Guinness derives from porter which was a London style of beer. I could be wrong though, I think that somebody told me this at a beer festival. I really have an issue with “cultural appropriation”. Were the Japanese who signed the surrender at end of WW2 dressed in top hat and tails just...

Re: Your Groundhog Day menu

I've never tried eels. Most just pull a face when they're mentioned. Can you liken them to anything, Coll, by way of flavour/texture? Are they smoked, or is that just one way of serving them? I’m talking stewed eels with liquor rather than jellied. Have you ever tried swordfish or, what is called r...

Thanks for the update, Vietnammer. I only met George the once, with you, HD1 and some others in the Black Lion. I had a great chat with him over a couple of beers. He had many interests and was passionate about most of them. I understand that he could be spiky and hand out asbo’s when posters crosse...

Re: Little things in life that make you smile

When our cats became old enough to go into the garden for the first time, one of them went straight to a big round flower pot and jumped on it, arched his back so that he point his arse towards the dirt and proceeded to do his business. It took him a little while to work out that outside you didn't...

Probably one for the American KUMBers but what do you do when your American football team moves its franchise to another city? I assume that you’d still follow them but as a largely alien concept to football, I am intrigued. When Wimbledon hopped up to Milton Keynes, many fans refused to support th...

Re: what pub have you been in today ? Rate it out of 10

Popped into the Queens Head on the tramway after the game on Saturday. Have not been in here since the new ownership.

It used to be rammed before and after games but there was a distinct lack of atmosphere this time. Also, they have moved from glasses to plastics.
