http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8413439/ Well, sort of.
Wow, what a stand. No beer, no meeting.
Hey, it's a start.
These filthy stinkin' muslime terrorist dogs want to take over the world, eliminate all other religions, including yours, and force everyone to carry a compass which is the reason no muslims will ever go to the north or south pole.
Thank God someone is willing to take a stand against these belligerent creeps.
Well, Belgian beer is worth fighting for!
I know that I will regret asking this but what the heck-----"What is this about Muslims and compasses"?
Many Muslims carry compasses in order to know the direction to face for prayers. (Facing toward Mecca)
My kind of people!:goodjob:
The Belgians that is. Just so there's no confusion!
OK. But the comment about them not going to the North or South pole still does not make a whole lot of sense.
It would be very difficult to get an exact bearing toward Mecca at or near the (magnetic)poles, as every direction would be south/north
That means we could really "torture" our terrorist "friends" by moving Gitmo to a certain spot in Canada.
Belgium is very intolerant of religious diversity... http://ctlibrary.com/8545
Thanks Rich.I figures it was something like that.
I've been known to down a few myself, but...
What do you do if you are having dinner with someone that you know is in AA? Do you order a drink anyway?
Or, if you are going to a party at someones home who is a teetotalar...do you BYOB?
In the case of a party at someone's house, I would abide by the host's desires. Unless the host said BYOB, I would leave the booze at home.
Having a dinner drink in front of a recovering alcoholic would depend upon the person. I know two people where it would not matter.
I don't drink but usually serve itt o others that do. But, if I had guests who did not drink for any reason I doubt I would offend them by having it out.
I ws ready to say that both sides acted poorly then I saw that the Iranians just made an informal request. In any event this is between Belgium and Iran.
I spent 4 months in Brussels, Belgium in 1987 while on an overseas semester in College. Those people know their beer. A country the size of Maryland had (at that time) 450 breweries (both small neighborhood brands or large international exports like Stella Artois).
They also love their French Fries and 2 Hour lunches...... The office workers supposedly worked from 9-12 and then from 2-5. All of the restaurants and pubs would fill up at noon and then clear out about 1:45.
The only down side? EVERYONE has a dog (which they take EVERYWHERE), and there were no pooper scooper laws, so I learned to look down. It was also 3 hours from Paris and 3 hours from Amsterdam by train. Tres Cool.
Hopefully you were able to sample some of the Lambics and trappist ales while you were in Belgium. The lambics are fermented in the open air letting the "wild yeasts" do the job. In almost any other part of the world, this would spoil the brew but the Belgian free cultures give the lambics a pleasing sour taste. Then they add rock candy for a second fermentation sometimes along with a fruit extract for flavoring. Yum!
Talk about disrespect and selfishness not to mention being a bad host. Now come on... couldn't this drunk sober up for one meeting and be a good host?
You've got it backwards. "When in Rome ..." doncha know.
