    New beer??

    Now that I am officially unemployed (or is that, "unemployable" ), a friend came round today with what I think is a new beer on the Thai market. The beer looks like it is made by San Mig. 4 bottles for 100 Baht. And, for the first time ever, I can say, Chang tastes good

    here's the beer. Anyone seen/tried it?

    ^ It's aimed at the segment of the market who thinks that Leo is classy.

    First had Red Horse in 1985 -- in Tokyo. I started seeing in Thailand regularly about a year ago. Flip's finest. I've had worse.

    Are you jobless now William or taking the piss?

    Cheers beer is dangerous. I am sure I told the tale of drinking it for nearly free when it first came out. The missus setup her market stall near the beer promoi van and my mate bought the girl a couple of t-shirts for 80B on the condition we drank all the beer we could for free.

    5pm to 9pm endless flowing cheers. It was bad, really bad, I can't remember shit, lost my motorbike, mate lost his, missus got all embaraced by our behaviour, declared my undying love for my secretary.

    Evil shit.

    I was off work for a few months a few years ago. This stuff appeared at the local supermarket. It's more than 7% as far as I remember.

    I don't drink beer for the taste and that side was ok. The missus banned it after a while though.

    I was pacing the floor one night about 3 or 4 am (converting several cans of horse to piss) and was struck by some amazing (or so they seemed at the time) ideas. Being kinda forgetful I thought it better to write some notes. The notes were accompanied by some diagrams and the whole thing seemed to be laid out nicely, making perfect sense to me. I retired to me bed in a good mood looking forward to continuing with this life changing plan just as soon as I had a bit of shuteye.

    Rising at 11 or so I had forgotten the whole thing. The missus was looking pissed off over something and I soon found out why. The notes and diagrams were not on paper or anything useful like that. I had done the whole thing on the side of the livingroom wall with marker. Loads of utter unreadable nonsense.

    As I said, the missus banned the stuff
    You know what 1B are AWESOME for?
    throwing at cats
    it only costs a single baht
    and they'll either chase it, or get hit by it and look pissed off
    I now use that system to value prices of things
    for example, a 3,000B slag has to be at least as awesome as three thousand catbahts

    Ms. B said she saw a billboard advertisement here in Korat for "Isaan Beer".

    First I've ever heard of it. Anyone else?

    Hideous stuff - good for cleaning drains before or after drinking it

    I disagree with the posts that Cheers is marginally worse - Cheers is definitely worse.

    Marginally and definately are not mutually exclusive terms. Cheers could be simultaneously definitely and marginally worse than Red Horse.

    I've never had so much as a nip of Cheers beer, but I did have a sniff once of a Cheers beer girl.

    But we digress.

    In my early 20s I rode my bicycle about 1 mile to the pub. Met my mate's old girlfriend, spilt about 3 days previous. Got smashed with her on RH and offered her to stay at my place. When the bar closed, she got on the seat of the bicycle and I was peddling, for about 30 feet. We careened off the parking lot pavement into the bushes. I never saw her again.

    Shame too. She had enormously large milk bubbles for a Nipponese.
