German "purity requirements" (Reinheitsgebot) - beer.


AKA German purity law.

:applaud:

The Reinheitsgebot [ˈʁaɪnhaɪtsɡəboːt], literally "purity order", sometimes called the "German Beer Purity Law" or the "Bavarian Purity Law" in English, is a regulation concerning the production of beer in Germany. In the original text, the only ingredients that could be used in the production of beer were water, barley, and hops. The law has since been repealed but many German beers, for marketing purposes, continue to declare that they abide by the rule, in an attempt to convince customers that only the three permissible ingredients are used (although technically all modern commercial breweries in Germany add a fourth ingredient, yeast).

I'd love to know what she was thiking when she was getting dressed this morning. I just can't believe she didn't know what wearing that would do to a lot of guys

It was in the cerebral setting of a university library that Matt McCormack Evans noticed how pornography was shaping his life. He was watching a female librarian stack books on shelves, stretching for the highest recess, when it occurred to him he "should look up some librarian-themed porn that evening," he says. "I remember making that mental note, and then catching myself."

Richard Herring stopped working (I mean, doing his work at the library, not being employed there) at the British Library because he found that he was so plagued by sexual thoughts about his fellow library users that he didn't get any work done.

I'm sure the "Germany Purity Law" is a very good thing, and ensures the excellence of German beer, but couldn't they have thought of a different name?

Nice one, I'm off to Alfriston, home of good tea shops, purveyors of cake, and more importantly, old pubs with real beer.

Another attempt at sobriety is going quite well - Day 12 today. I figured with all this running I am doing, as part of my half marathon training, having 8 pints every night sort of defeated the object.

It's fucking dull though...

a nice long walk on a frosty morning seeing a kingfisher, mallards, and a green heron
and tonight the children are crying out in the land where they let the children cry
Yesterday I believed in man;today I don't. And tomorrow? Tomorrow is up in the air.
Standing on a corner waiting for no one is Power.
I wish I was free of that slaving meat wheel and safe in heaven dead.
