well, i'm a wine drinker (or a G&T on a hot day) so i apply the same principal with wine to beer... the more expensive it is the better it probably is... its a hit and miss approach.. anyway, beer is carbonated effluent... did you know they filter it through meat?? MEAT!! *gags*

I admitted i was shite with a gri gri, but i'm completely compitent with an ATC, why should that be uninspiring??! perhaps if i was belaying them with a gri gri. I dont see why i have to be compitent with all types of belays, i am never going to buy myself a gri gri, never going to use one on the rocks, and think its a completely idiotioc sentiment. If you are left handed why force yourself to write script with your right hand?? Lunacy.
