Things you have been slow to realise


#1122

That said, I’ve had ales from Merseyside, Yorkshire and Scotland, as well as Cornwall that have been as good here as when I’ve drunk them closer to where they were brewed.


#1123

Not to contradict you, but a landlord once told me that Doom Bar does travel well (can handle being shunted about etc.) and that is one of the reasons that explains its ubiquity


#1124

I wasn’t intending to mean that I believed it didn’t travel well. Just that I consider it to be one of the less good ales, alongside London Pride and Black Sheep. (I know that’s just my taste, my opnion, of course.)


#1125

Don’t they brew it in Burton as well these days anyway?


#1126

Cask is still brewed in Rock in Cornwall, the bottled version is done in Burton.


#1127

I think the main reason for it’s ubiquity is that it’s owned by MolsonCoors and thus offered as part of a cheap package to any pub as part of a set along with Carling and whatever else. It could travel amazingly well and turn up in perfect condition every time, but that’s irrelevant if a landlord is going to let it sit on a tap for weeks on end.


#1128

That’s fair

I guess I want to the explanation to be that is travels well rather than some money boring boring


#1129

The Macedonia naming controversy.

Accidentally upset a Greek guy on Facebook about it the other day.


#1130

And if you lament the fact that it’s not wholly Cornish any more on Twitter, someone from their social media army will come along and correct you :confused:

Rubbish brewery anyway - when I visited about ten years ago you couldn’t do tours and their shop was utterly soulless.


#1131

That’s what Scientology does for you.


#1132

A prima donna is not just a singer who was around before Madonna.


#1133

That Donald Glover was playing Teddy Perkins in that creepy ep of Atlanta


#1134

Huey!


#1135

Which way round the increase/decrease decimal icons are in Excel.

More a case of will never remember than slow to realise if truth be told, this one. Always manage to forget even a few seconds after using them.

Remove the arrows and shift the single zero to the left. That’d sort 'em.


#1136

100% this. Will never ever learn it. Same as which one is colour text and which one is cell.


#1137

Yup. And all the more annoying cos the icons are actually half decent.


#1138

The dial essential cranks up the power


#1139

This song just came up on shuffle and I realised where the One Thing sample came from (about 1 minute 40 in)


#1140

I only just realised I could change my vote on a poll in DiS.


#1141

21 million…
