Yes, don't piss off Paras. It hurts.

Although pissing on Paras also has the same effect.

I could tell you some stories about paras, but as I'm pretending to be a good girl I won't... sometimes growing up in the vicinity of RAF Lossiemouth isn't so good for a girl... and then we moved to Faslane...

The problem with living near RAF Brize Norton is that all the planes fly right over my f****g house...

I used to live about 1/2 a mile from RAF Binbrook (in fact I sort of still do, in the holidays) and that got quite erm... loud, shall we say. Lightnings are the only plane I've ever seen to actually make the ground shake as they fly over. But then it closed. They did film about 95% of 'Memphis Belle' there about 10 years ago though. Which was nice. I saw that one that crashed crash.

I saw Memphis belle when It came out with a war adicted friend (The strange thing is shes 21 now, and still adicted to all things to do with war and stuff, including Sharpe novels.Is this what growing up with the British Army in Germany does to you I wonder) I don't mind the planes. I just think its really cool when the fly so close over the top of your caravan that you can see their faces, well under the masks. ( I was only little OK)

I'm new to the Guide, but I have to say that I am all for a section on drinking, and beer in particular. It is an important part of human culture. For instance (and I have to look this up to get the facts absolutely straight), an anthropologist has put forth the theory that the brewing of beer predates the making of bread. It seems that folks used to think that beer was a byproduct of the baking process, but this particular scientist figures that our ancenstors made bread as a way of getting rid of the gunk that was left over from their brewing of beer smiley - smiley Cool stuff, huh?

Also, to respond to our "Dunken Fool" friend, I would just like to say that one should practice moderation in all things, and that includes sobriety.

Well, I was going to pop round and say hello, and welcome to the guide and stuff, but as you've not written anything on your homepage, I can't. Even if you just change it to hi for just now, then people can all come round and be friendly, but right now we can't... Anyway, this is hello, feel free to drop by mine anytime...
Hxx

Sorry 'bout that, Helena. I'm going to shoot right over and edit my page as soon as I finish apologizing. I just registered yesterday, and was nursing a minor hangover when I got into the forum, then had to leave for work. I just love the hell out of those microbrews, but at two in the morning, they can work on ya.

I believe focus is the act of being sober while trying to look at an object. I have no experiance with this myself so its all heresay.

Both my flatmates seem to think you need a celebration to drink. Madness.

"Ah! you're drinking! What's the occasion?"
"Erm... I was sober...?"

Going off at a complete tangent, Madness are brilliant.

I have standing tickets for their gig at the Telewest arena on the 20th dec... And before anybody says, no I'm going with my very cute boyfriend!! (The fact that I am firmly (ish) attached comes as a surprise to most people, I wonder why?!!?) And as for drinking for a celebration, who in their right mind does that... You're drinking?? Yes, its christmas, I hate christmas, which is why I'm knocking into a bottle of vodka for breakfast. Tee hee, alchoholics of the world unite, and tell them their twelve steps suck!!

Does anyone know how to make a cocktail called Black Velvet or something similar ? I know that a pint of Guinness is involved and probably champagne.

I dont think this drink is a Girly. It sounds more kind of feline smiley - winkeye
Actually i think this drink is infamous for a few reasons - not all of which i dare mention..
