Can I get something to eat first?

Actually, never mind.  There will be popcorn at the bar.

Canuckistan has once again suited up its military to save Britain in its finest hour.
Watch out for Shorsey. He's quite the dick when hammered (or sober for that matter).

Why are they setting a limit, are they afraid they might run out?

Do they even have popcorn at British pubs?

Come to think of it, what DO British pubs have as bar snacks? Bangers and mash? Boiled mutton? Brexit?

So, what will they do after the first weekend?

Careful. With a tolerance that low, you're likely to get your Fark card revoked.

Shame and a glassing if you're not careful.

Remember, in the UK a pint is a bit over 19oz in US measure. 2 UK pints is more than 3 12oz bottles of beer. They say over the summer, so assuming 91 days for the summer, It would be 1.36 pints per day or just over 2 bottles a day. Now when I was in England for a year of university, pretty sure I averaged higher than that.

Mostly health foods, like picked onions, pickled eggs, pork scratchings, potato crisps, ploughman's lunches and steak and kidney pies.

Packet foods like nuts, crisps, pork scratchings; also pickled eggs / gherkins in a few. Plus actual food in pubs with tables (not mentioning certain brands for shiatty treatment of staff)

If Her Majesty's government wants to import an American Redneck for a week to help out I can bring my own designated driver (the wife doesn't drink) and spare pint assistant (my son is 17 so I guess legal to drink in the UK?)

The age is 18....but there is an exception if an adult buys a pint for a kid who is 16 or 17....I didn't realize that until just now:

So...um, what is there to do in a British pub while you're drinking too much?  Pool?  Pinball?  Hot chicks?  Dwarf tossing?  Darts?  What would make it worth the flight?
 
2021-05-16 6:07:19 PM  
I don't understand the problem here, lol. They have all summer to do it.  That's only a 12 pack a weekend.

IMHO:

I thought London was overpriced and kind of boring.....although I had a blast attending Seahawks @ Raiders at Wembley Stadium.

The Slavic countries are so much more fun...cheaper drinks and ridiculously beautiful women.  And Prague is just as beautiful as Paris...but without the snooty Parisian attitude.

You can test out the strength of their pint glasses.

When we went to a pub close to our hotel, I accidentally knocked over a pint glass that was at our table....and it basically exploded into small pieces.  Obviously, I did not expect that to happen since it just fell onto the table.

And my assumption was correct....they shatter like that in order to avoid having them do serious damage to people during fights.

Got it.

And the that wasn't the place....it was at a pub called The Moon Under Water...a friend recommended it, and I am glad he did...have me a reason to leave the hotel at the airport.

I can't wait to see what the finance experts have to say about the red light districts.

124 pints = 165 beers.

How much is that in 40% liquor?

Beer is for the weak.
