“Um... the rest of the UK? And I lived there for nearly 10 years? Most of the pubs you visited were in the touristy areas, correct?”

JesZ on May 30, 2014 at 20:11:50

“No, not really. I've been there enough times to know where the tourists go and which pubs are filled with locals. I prefer the latter, There are shelves around both types of establishment. Also, where we visited in Scotland, the locals left their beer mugs in the streets to be collected the next day. I was very surprised by that practice. It never would have occurred to me to leave my mug anywhere but back in the bar.”

“What an astonishing stupid "Europeans are better than Americans" article. This was so bad it was nauseating. It's much simpler than this article suggests: British chickens are often a different species from American chickens. I lived in the UK for nearly ten years and I NEVER found a feather amongst my eggs. And drinking outside as part of your daily routine? Um, what UK did they go to?”

ScotinVT on Jun 6, 2014 at 11:15:09

“I think the article said that because they don't have the stringent regulations about cleaning eggs that they do in the US, British egg producers are more careful about keeping the hen's quarters clean. Also, due to smoking restrictions in pubs now, you'll find outdoor seating outside many places now. You see folks out there in all weathers having a fag. A lot of places, especially in southern England, have beer gardens and not just the touristy places.”

“What UK did you go to? Many of the pubs we visited in London had a shelf wrapped around the building where people could rest their mugs while standing outside.”

“In summer that's true, beer gardens overflow after about 18:00”

“I don't think they meant outside as in al fresco, I think they mean outside as in not in your living room (lounge),,,They're talking pub culture.
Thanks for explaining the different species thing about the eggs though. I lived in Ireland for about a year and when I got back to the States I was converted to farm eggs (and butter) but the yolks were still not that crazy orange color like they are in Ireland. I don't know why it didnt occur to me that the chickens were a different species!”

“You make a serious point, Douglas, which I appreciate. Yes, the founding fathers believed that a tyrannical government should be overthrown (a la Locke, but that's a whole other story) and I agree with them. Does that mean that gun ownership is partially in anticipation of an armed revolution against the US government? Certainly many gun rights advocates believe this to be the case. But are those same gun rights advocates arguing for an abolishment of the Constitution? Because that's what overthrowing the government would necessitate. It would appear, from the rhetoric of gun rights advocates, that this isn't the case; when gun rights advocates are walking around waving the Constitution in one hand and a gun in another they are clearly not interested in overthrowing and/or abolishing the government. This is where I lose respect for conservative thinking: it's not that it's hypocritical per se but it's clearly contradictory.”

djaurand on May 30, 2014 at 11:59:26

“The people want to change the US Government have no real protection against force by the the government without weapons, that's what the founding fathers made sure they could do. The Constitution give the citizens the weapons to abolish the US Government even it it means abolishing the current Constitution and writing a new one”

“While I completely agree with you that people are increasingly consumed by their own sense of self-importance and that things are getting worse, I really doubt that this has anything to do with a little bit of decolletage or visible shoulders.”

“Of course I mind. But at least I'm not taking it to the extreme of wearing tin foil on my head. Privacy concerns and issues, while very very serious, do not necessitate the stockpiling of firearms in anticipation of a possible need to overthrow the government.”

“Scott the founding fathers disagree with you as do many Americans today, that if the US Government no longer serves the people who created, they should abolish it and start over. The only way to make sure that can happen is with weapon to protect the citizens from the government”

“Many jobs don't need a college degree: working in McDonalds, working in Wendys, working in Burger King, working at the local car wash. But to get a job that pays you well enough to survey these tough times you need a college degree not because the degree provides specific benefits but because employers are still demanding one in order to pay you more.”
