The best, vs., top 10 & favourite consolidation thread
 
Officially, the unofficial thread where you can post all those stupid lists, impossible comparisons, global hierarchical statements & personal favourites that nobody gives a damn about. If they're all in one place, they can be easily avoided, alternatively, gravitated towards, if you're bored out of your skull and want to offer an alternative view to get a reaction, then complain when you don't like the reply.

The best sock color is a flat black, but my favorite socks are white with a doubly-cushy grey bottom. Oh, so comfy!

We have warm beer, an airline that's mostly on strike, nuclear subs that are mostly in for repair & football teams were the wives get more attention than the players. Does that count?

Are these two football players? I wasn't aware anyone took up drumming after Ringo decided to upgrade to Thomas the tank engine!

P.S. might as well get that one in, as the likelyhood of this thread lasting until Saturday (unless you're in Australia), is about the same as me buying a triangle.

^ This. 100% agreed.

I've not owned socks that weren't either black or white since I was a teen. It saves a lot of time in trying to find a matching pair in the morning!

Beer was the central theme of this post, which you have a lock on, Andy. Personally, I prefer wines and single malts : )

BA used to be so good during Thatcher. The best. What happened??

Dont know much on the football front except the kids insist on Man U shirts. I'd wear a WoMan U shirt if there was one.

With you on the wine thing. Not a malt guy though. Beer occasionally, hate to say it but, the Belgians do it best. Leffe blonde vs. Bud? Hahahaha, not even a contest! In fact, I'm not sure how Bud can be called a beer.

My Son loves Thomas. We have many DVDs.

Sometimes he'll be watching one, and I'll think "woah, did I hear Ringo Star talking?"

I love Thomas. His chuff chuff chuff is so rhythmical. Great polyrhythms with the gaps in the track too.

RINGO vs. THOMAS!

Pity this thread will be gone by the time Polly wakes up.

10. "Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue."

9. "Where's the glue?"
"We're out of glue."
"You used up all the glue on purpose!"

8. "So is a peanut butter and glue sandwich, that doesn't mean you eat it."

7. "This music is the glue of the world Mark. It's what holds it all together. Without this, life
would be meaningless."

6. "How do you know the tooth fairy isn't some crazy glue-sniffer?"

5. " I can't get the antlers glued to this little guy. We tried Crazy Glue, but it don't work."

4. I couldn't catch a ball if it had Elmer's Glue all over it."

3. "Glue... very powerful stuff."

2. "I got to piss like a Russian race horse at the Kentucky Derby wit a glue truck behind him"

1. "When a horse falls, foam comes out of its mouth. When it falls, the legs of the horse thrash and the horse is no good... So somebody shoots it. The horse turns into glue. A machine puts the glue into bottles and children squeeze the bottles to get the glue out and stick bits of paper onto cards. Glue gets on the childrens hands and the children eat the glue. And the children become the horse.

No worries, mate. It's was something I just threw in.

What about Karen Carpenter vs. John Bonham? She could not last ten minutes with a Zep's number.

But your "location" says Kingdom (United?) - so - to be fair - Kingdoms are harder to run, than countries - but you really should start refrigerating your beer...just a thought...

We refrigerate the "new generation" beers, but the traditional stuff is still at room temperature. I must admit, when I'm in a beer mood, I'm more of a bitter & ale guy.

Mass manufactured beer vs. traditional brews?
Top ten best beers?
Top ten worst beers (well 9 actually. Bud naturally takes the top slot in that list)
Kingdoms vs. dictatorships.

And the best part about her is, she comes in 12 packs.

Speak for yourself. Hardly any of my black socks seem to match. They always seem to be a slightly different shade of black.

However, Meg is young and fit and is no doubt slammin' down on the tubs more often than me. On the other hand, I'm highly strategic. Yeah, I think the extra life experience and my rat cunning could give me the edge. Does it have to be in mud, though? I don't want that crud getting in my fingernails and elsewhere.


Get a bunch of blokes together without a clear agenda and what's the main topic of conversation? Beer. At least it's not sport or cars ... at this stage.

Here's one for you ... DRUMS VS BEER? If you had to give up one, which would it be? *evil grin as I imagine much horror and squirming in the ranks even at the thought*

Most of everything is surprisingly popular. Drums are especially popular round here for some reason, and fall under GD's panacea of too expensive.

Low cost stuff vs. high cost stuff? Not as surface stupid as you would believe. The implications for global society are profound. The standard of living of those supplying a premium sector economy, as a juxtaposition to those supplying a low quality, typically high volume economy, is an interesting discussion point.

Meister Brau, Milwaukee's Best, Brew 102 and Brown Derby, 4 beers that are definitely "worse" than Bud. When you need a beer real bad.....these are really bad beers.
