But all of you missed my point. Over here we invented the real gallon, but in US they use little gallons which are only about 90% of the volume of real gallons, so 4.5 lt makes a real gallon whereas about 4 lt makes a US gallon. So a full pint is not what would be called a pint in US. And that is before we get to the Australian court case of the 70s concerning whether the volume of a beer includes the head or not.[COLOR="Silver"]

How could you?
A US Gallon is 3.78 litres. A UK Gallon is 4.45 litres.At least their feet are the same size. Unlike Cape Feet that are bigger.

It's a hard job getting real Marmite here. It's sold as "OurMate" as the name "Marmite" has a different Intellectual Property owner. And the "Marmite" made here tastes nothing like Marmite.

Nah, I'll stick with Ingress for a while yet, I think. I see lots of new players these days - wonder if that's because of the Pokemon thingy.
I do that too. May run for l12 this coming weekend in Nashville. I swap between screens while farming gear. Which faction are you? I'm enl

And how did it feel handing over ALL your google data?
Niantic already had it because of Ingress.

I broke my rule of not reading the morning news...now I will be in a bad mood all day. I knew better....

Our vacation did not include any news watching.....and it was wonderful! As we drove through some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere on earth, and conversed with people along the way...people that were friendly and at least seemed normal and reasonable, we got the apparently false idea that everything is really fine out there in the real world. We should have known better...but it felt so good....

Shoot squirrels and feel better! With your camera of course. Sometimes I think the critters at my place are better people than some people.

Green as well Just two months in and about 500k from lvl10. Normally that would be about a week but, paradoxically, I might not have that much time to play the coming weeks when the first part of my vacation hits me

The Pokemon thingy isn't available over here yet, but I've installed the app and caught a few critters anyway. Not sure it's possible to play it properly here quite yet. Oh well.

Once you hit l10 you get into badge hell. Of course after today I will have the badges for l15, and within a month or so will have them for l16 by getting plat on glyph hacking.

Not much doubt about the animals being better than some people. Most of their lives are spent searching for food.....and a few of them take tie to play and have some fun....squirrels and raccoons are fun lovers if they have full bellies.

No problems with badges yet. I have what I need for 11, and with some more glyphing I'm ready for 12. Lots of walking, and got lucky and found a portal off the beaten path, have held it for 56 days now. One smurf is enough to end that, though.

Bob, I shall never forgive you for posting that.
Now excuse me while I search for ways to unsee something.


Pencils in your eyes then a frontal lobotomy, self administered. If that doesn't do it, nothing will.

It really is a fine and beautiful world.















But there are plenty of turds out there trying to screw it up.


Join me in the crusade to kick their butts back into the holes they crawled out of, Ok?

This was sent to me by a fellow member....Otis said he recognized the bottom one as Miley Squirrel. Makes sense to me!

Both look delicious too! That pizza is my kind of pizza! I need to do some ribeyes, haven't done any in a long time. Better than a T-bone...but that fat meat on a big juicy T-bone is my favorite part of any steak. A flavor all its own!
