You had better watch out the next time you play tennis, you don't want to infringe upon this patent.

BTW - Nice to see the advanced editor doesn't have the white background anymore. That was really starting to annoy me Cool

That can't be for real ... what if you actually have a bad knee and wear a kneebrace since said knee pad would touch or come close to touching the surface of the court!

LOL! They certainly do! I had a huge house party when I was 18 and as a result one of my friends was hospitalised and I ended up paying my mum over 400 in damages to the house. Great fun, mind, and it's still the most talked about party :-)

Yeah - someone always ends up in hospital after a good 18th. I finished school about a month ago and went away with some mates for a week to celebrate. 2nd night there, four of us were in hospital with Acute Alcohol Intoxication Crazy Other then that it was a good trip!

gallons of beer? LOL! Me and 3 of my mates once drank a medium-keg of beer (72~ish pints) in one rather-eventful day last year. That hurt! I used to work in the local night club, and the keg of beer was a bonus heehee.

Hmm I don't think it's physically possible to drink 24 pints in a day and if you did you would have died.

72 Pints... Thats 12 litres each, which generally equals a good night Smile

Re: [RedRum] Warning to tennis players In reply to
You mean 18 pints - 72/4 = 18.

Yes, it is possible over a course of a whole day (starting from 11am), and yes, I might has well been dead by the end of the day, and for the next three actually.

12 Litres is only 1 case of beer. A lot of my friends will drink that much over about an 8 hour session... You don't die, you just get drunk.

Beer with Whiskey!?! Yuck!

I don't really drink that much. If I do I usually have Vodka mixed with soft drink or beer though. I don't really like Whiskey/Rum or things like that. I'm not even old enough to drink yet so I do generally have to stick to soft drink when I go out Smile

Start off on the beers then move to a nice wisky ;-)

I don't drink that often, either. I've given up drinking just for drinking or socialising. I only drink on 'occassions' like parties, weddings, birthdays etc.

wait till you hit 30! ... a 6 pack will make you think twice !

Drink while you still can ... err while you body let's you I should say.

Just ... 1 parent preach here /// don't drive! man that's not a good thing to do. Drop a tab, smoke some weed ... just driving and alcohol is not nice.

A bigger killer than alcohol when you're behind the wheel, which was highlighted again in the UK last week, is tiredness. 1 out of every 4 motor accidents in the UK are down to driver error because they are too tired to drive.

Re: [Wil] Beer In reply to
what's the speed limit over there?

japan is ::
50km most areas
80km on inner city express ways
100km on highways

diriving 50km in the country side ... makes you go to sleep ... so I do about 100km ... break the speed but at least not my neck!

Re: [QooQ] Beer In reply to
In the uk we still use stupid mph but it is:

30mph cities

40-50 semi urban

60 main roads

70 motorwarys/dual carriage ways



which is basically



45

60 - 75

90

105

(but a bit more as there is about 1.6 km in a mile i think).

Laugh thought the UK be meteric by now... the US is a basket case about this still

those look pretty close to what's in the States.

imagine Japan is about the same size as the UK ... and we suffer with -10-15 slower than you folks
although I have to sit in the right side of the car Laugh that was tough to get used to!

Now when I go back to the States I drive on the wrong side of the road!!!

I try to remember to sit in the middle of the road then all is cool!
