  1. 1. Some guys like that bottled beer Some like it in a can Some say a keg's the best beer For a real beer drinking man Everyone has their favourite But on one thing they agree The greatest beer in all the world Is the one you drink for free Free beer free beer That's my favourite brand If I didn't have to buy it It's the best beer in the land Warm flat funky It don't matter to me The greatest beer in this whole world Is the one you buy for me 2. The boys at the bar were betting On whose beer was the best I didn't have a nickel So they chose me to make the test Those fifteen different kinds of beer Were wonderful to me Each one was my favourite brew The beer I drink for free Free beer free beer That's my favourite brand If I didn't have to buy it It's the best beer in the land Warm flat funky It don't matter to me The greatest beer in this whole world Is the one you buy for me 3. Our old pal Nudsie got married He was trying to save some bucks He went out and bought the cheapest beer And boy it really sucked But after you choke that first one down The rest go easily As long as you remember that You're drinking them all for free Free beer free beer That's my favourite brand If I didn't have to buy it It's the best beer in the land Warm flat funky It don't matter to me The greatest beer in this whole world Is the one you buy for me
  2. I'm listening to the rather noisy (but blessedly effective) air handling system in our building at work.
  3. "If you weren't my cousin I'd marry you." "That's never stopped anyone in this family."

  5. The ESB trip to Bespin didn't bother me too much...in part because of a game mechanic quirk from the old West End d6 Star Wars RPG. Most ships larger than fighters had some form of backup hyperdrive. Backups were always hideously slow compared to the main drive, and weren't meant to be used for more than one or two jumps before needing an overhaul, but could help a ship limp to port to effect repairs. I wonder if they came up with that mechanic from that very scene, because it made more sense that way.
  6. Rey would have been more interesting to me if she had joined forces with Kylo Ren. She went to incredible lengths to find Luke only to be rejected by him, so to find someone actually willing to mentor her...well, it might have been fun. I did crack a grin at a legendary Jedi Master being spooked by an angry Wookiee bashing down his door.
  7. Such septic humor. I need to scat away from this discussion.
  8. I was surprisingly fond of the Solo movie on a couple of levels. First, it showed us the underworld of the Star Wars universe instead of another stab at an epic Jedi/Sith or Rebellion/Empire type of story. The characters were more ordinary, sort of like "Firefly meets Star Wars", just trying to make their way in the galaxy. I found the change of pace refreshing, sort of like how I felt after seeing Rogue One. Second, I echo Old Man's opinion of the story: reasonably well written, with no massive plot holes. Third, I had a few nerd moments when the characters dropped little references to the classic Lando Calrissian and Han Solo novels, and when a certain Ewok kinda showed up. It certainly has its flaws and nits to pick, but overall I found it to be an enjoyable popcorn flick, and will probably buy the Blu Ray when it comes out.
  9. "Come to Australia; you might accidentally get killed. Blood is sure to be spilled. Your pants will soon be filled."
  10. Who knows if Hulk will make it to Asgard or just help Thor escape...but he might be a decent weapon against Hela. "I have an army." "We have a Hulk."
  11. I had taken on the persona of David Banner for this one. I was working with some other "good" Hulk creature (not Red Hulk, but an unnamed green guy) to go after an evil Hulk (probably Abomination from the 2008 Incredible Hulk movie, but our enemy was never named in the dream either). We chased the baddie around a few places, probably inflicting the usual incidental property damage, but couldn't catch him and he eluded us. I had de-Hulked and talked with my comrade, trying to figure out our next move. The radio crackled (we were somehow in a control room at this point), and the baddie came on the frequency. We exchanged a few taunts and threats, and then the baddie made some comment about being in the rafters in some kind of big sports arena. He then said, "I have someone who wants to talk to you." Next, my son's voice crackled over the radio, saying in a frightened voice, "It's really scary up here." A great swell of rage surged to life inside me, shooting through my limbs as I drank in the heady rush of power. I felt my flesh rippling and growing as the Hulk metamorphosis took hold-- --and then the damn alarm went off, ruining a perfectly good Hulk-out. I haven't been able to repeat a similar dream since.
