I'm OK with this. The sooner August comes the better.


Very true. But I just realised that I promised to lose the beer gut for the summer, whoops. :lol:

Just done the weekly shop at Morrisons, before breakfast and whilst hungry. Bought £78 worth of food. All food. The most I've ever spent in a week I think.

Yep... I know better than to do this. And yet... it still happens. It's like going beer shopping after a shitty day and you just want one to clear down. It gets expensive.

Normally you serve it over ice, where it goes cloudy. It's basically because types of oils in there which dissolve in alcohol, and when you dilute the alcohol, the oil comes out of the solution and emulsifies.

#1 and 2 are particularly amazing. Apparently when you play a Fallout game and lower your characters intelligence to zilch, the game actually treats you like a moron. That sounds genuinely hilarious.
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Really cool article. I love the AI in Bethesda games, especially Oblivion.
