I don't think the Germans will be watching ATM. It's Saturday evening. They'll either be out looking for a parking space to reserve for Monday morning, or they'll be shaving their wives.


or watching the david hasselhoff special on prime time :)

We have many Arabs and Chinese too. We are very diverse.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

I am not taking sides in this one, I was only referring to Ian's hole through the sausage comment. :wink: :lol: Besides, you should see some of the garbage that people in the US eat. :o


No kidding.  Texas State Fair....last year....I ate a deep fried Twinkie.  :o  Then I ate a deep fried Snickers.  :?  And for the piece de resistance, a piece of deep fried cheesecake.   8O    I dont think I ate anything else for three days.

I hear there is a restaurant in Dallas that serves chicken-fried bacon.  I dont see how it could be any worse for your health than Scotch eggs.   :P

I've seen Highlander and enough cooking shows to know what is in haggis. Can't say I've ever wanted to try it. Black Pudding...actually had to look that one up. Good lord! 8O  And for the Monty Python fans a little snippet:

Eric : Black pudding's very black today, mother...
Mum : Yes it is very black today, dear
Eric: That's very black, that is even the white bits are black...

Actually I like scotch eggs. Wouldnt have them every day for breakfast mind you but once a year at the local Renaissance festival is fine.

Edit:  Now that I think about it, black pudding probably wouldnt be that bad.  On one of the links I found a French variant called boudin noir.  I have had boudin rouge which is Cajun and quite tasty.  If I ever take a trip to the U.K. I will probably have to give it a try.  But it would take a shitload of booze to get me to try haggis.  :D

In heaven, your lover is Italian, your cook is French, your car is German, and your lawyer is English.

In hell, your lawyer is Italian, your car is French, your lover is German, and your cook is English.

I was told the French came out with a new main battle tank. 1 forward gear and 13 reverse. Is it true?

hehehe yeah

cept in the prototype, someone wired a board wrong, so it didnt actually go forward, it went sideways.

also it had an inbuilt special option that when a reverse gear was selected, a a big white flag would appear out of the top of the tank.

it also fires special garlic shells.

:D

Hum a little help for my french "compatriote" and just to confirm what Youffie say... Frenchy's RPGs are very interesting, and for some of them, very collectibles. I am thinking about Ambre, which was translated in English langage as Amber diceless, for example.

youffie404 wrote:a GREAT RPG, very very original.
Reves de Dragon (dragons' dream).
Great game!


One of the better RPG I have ever played and mastered! Denis Gerfaud have done a wonderfull job with fantastic and totally oniric adventures. A real pleasure.

Another very interesting RPG is In Nomine Satanis, translated as In Nomine by SJG. Some supplements have been especially created for the In Nomine version by SJG.

And of course, Agone, which is translated too in english

NB:
