I am aware of the skit and the reference. I have a friend called Bruce and
we bug him about it whenever the topic comes up. I thought all gamers
watched Python?

It's already been noted it's a beer, it's just that I hate beer as it's
bitter. but I love stout and can drink copious amounts of it? (Even I don't
understand it) It's just my older brother turns up in less then a fortnight
and we'll probably hit the Brissie pubs and he knows what the good stuff is
and I thought we might try to track down this Shiner Bock.

Mexican food is just about my favourite food along with curry. And as Alan
has already said the best is home made.

I only found out last night that chillies are addictive so I got to add
another legal drug to my growing list that I like.
