Posted:Hello (echo, echo, echo..... etc)

Is there anyone from New Zealand in this flashin box of gizmoes. If so, Drop us a line of what ever you think the time and place calls for. Hungry for contact of the NZ Human Kind.
We need more kiwis on this thing, it almost seems like a British Affair.

Toy, Toys oh wonderful fire toys,
How bright your wicks do glow,
Show us you path that leads to the enlightenment window,
From there we shall weave web of flame until the sun does show,
Her elemental rays of life and wonder,
Where all our questions are lined up for answering in the virgen light of another day,
Although all answers are only given when the window to the soul is open,
Be not dismayed if you are given not what your were hoping,
All questions will be answered when the sun decides that you and your soul is ready for its burden.

FireFly Guy Has Had A Moment Of Spiritual Clarity

ENJOY!!

if no one is around to hear the sound of no replies, Does the sound of no replies make no sound?

Think about that one for a while

Posted:You should ask a foreigner I'm biased.

It depends what you count as revolting. I detest Budweiser. It, like most american beers, has no flavour. Did you mean beers with more or less flavour than bud?

Posted:Well, I can't give you a solid frame of reference but I can tell you that in my opinion, The darker the beer, the better. Well, I thought that everybody liked Guiness, oh what the hey.
But unfortunately we only get the stuff that is brewed in Auckland.

Posted:Guinness is Irish.

There have been several threads about beers/ales/whatever. I suggest you do a search for them.

....

Meanwhile this poor bewildered fool is looking for kinfolk in the wilds of New Zealand. Help him some one. Help him.

He can't seem to find any other kiwis on this website that was started (and is still run) in New Zealand by a New Zealander. Can you find it in your hearts to aid him?

If only one of the moderators was a kiwi - perhaps from Auckland - that would be a help.

It would be really cool if the winner of the staff section for the first 2 years of the Circles of Light competition was from New Zealand. That would be such an inspiration for a young lad lost and all alone without a single other spinner in his country with access to this site.

Or perhaps if the whole damn site was teeming with new zealanders and aussies. Then his worry would be over. But alas and alack it's mainly a british affair.....

Posted:now now cantus, there's no need to be so curt.
you musn't mistake lack of knowledge for stupidity.
no firefly guy we don't have any kind of drinks in this country worse than american budweiser.
except dandelion and burdock. but i don't think that counts. luckily if we want a good lager we're close enough to the czech republic to get budvar (the original budweiser ).
even more luckily, we don't need lager coz british beer is better than anyone else's.

btw whereabouts in nz are you?
i have an uncle in wellington (we shipped him out there when we caught him stealing things)


wherever you go, there you are.

Posted:Hello from Auckland,

:hands you some marmite and a defaced Winston Peters political poster:

A small suggestion to everyone on the board, including FireFly Guy. If you want people from a town or country to respond, try putting that town or country in the Thread Topic.

I've buzzed over this thread dozens of times this morning because I didn't look at it...

Anyways.

How ya doing there FireFly????

Alcohol content is irrelevant, if you think about it. If I need to get drunk (which never happens) then I can drink vodka. Why would I want to suffer through American beer to get drunk, when there's an easier way? Even if the alcohol content was higher, what would be the point?

Ick...I hate alcohol in general, but beer was the first thing I ever got drunk and sick on...and NEVER AGAIN!

Posted:GRRRRR!!!!

I get so sick of you forigners assuming that all American beer tastes like Coors and Budweiser

Not that Americans have ever been accused of having anything resembling collective good taste, but there are hundreds of wonderful beers that are not only so dark you need to chew them, but many have a wicked alcohal content. Steel Reserve for example, while not the greatest tasting beer in the world, gets the job done with an 8.9% alcohal content. Shiner has a very good amber bach. Sam Adams, Flying Dog, and the company that produces Fat Tire and Blue Paddle all have wonderful selections of stouts, lagers, pale ales, and bitters. All of which will make most imports want to run back home to their respective mommies. If there is any disbelief feel free to come here and spend the time in the offie to look past the Coors and the rice beers like budweiser and taste some real beer.

Ironicly, while I hear forigners complane constantly of American beer, in every country I have ever been to I have noticed that the steets are litterd with Budwieser cans. This includes Canada, and the UK.
Odd, that.......
