"My friends are your friends and your friends are my friends" I'll drink to that! :-)

Like the Sheldonian 'Bar-rollin' I am not an engineer either ( a retired English-teacher, in fact)and I am part of a Quaker family - so many of my cousins are, if not teetotal, not great drinkers - and vegetarians. I am unrepentantly carnivorous and beer-swilling. Therefore, "My friends are your friends and your friends are my friends" and "The more we are together the merrier we'll be."

Hi David -- I see from your "pubcollector" page that you were "...brought up in Durham County and Sheffield, Yorkshire..." I am from Sheffield "born and bred". I would love a copy of your book, but I'm now based in the USA -- can you email me at "max@CliveMaxfield.com" and we can talk about how I can arrange payment. Re your being "Chairman of the Friends of the Froth Blowers" ... I see no reason why this should not include the new "Worshipful Ancient Order of Froth Blowers" because we need all the friends we can get :-)

As Chairman of the Friends of the Froth Blowers, author of two 140-page books on the subject ("Of Fripp and Froth Blowers" - 2005 - and "The Zestful Gollopers" - 2012) and the Director of the new Froth Blowers Brewing Company I feel I might have seniority in this case - all the more so since I am over three scores and ten in age. For the modest sum of £9.00 (inc. postage) I am prepared to send you - or any other interested party - a copy of my more recent book.

This local norwegian newspaper suggests that the size of the plane is ok.. http://www.aftenbladet.no/nytte/teknologi/Regnet-seg-frem-til-supermanebilder--2968980.html Adjusting levels and zooming in on the plane reveals a bright aura. I guess this could be caused by reflections, but even the dark spots has this aura. It could be caused by some image optimization I guess.. What is left for doubt is some digital disturbances around the front of the plane. I can not explain any natural phenomena for that..

We have strong survival instincts from our days as hunter-gatherers (dating back to the early days of the industrial revolution when we needed to feed our brains in order to have the strength to create modern civilization)

One interesting corollary for engineers (at least hardware types for sure) is we have the uncanny ability to detect free food even at great distances (I have been known to show up 3 floors away right at the time the leftovers are put out for general [or non-private as it were] consumption).

I am not sure that you can truly pollute your beer. After all, we only rent it and that for a short time.

Somehow I feel better knowing that this is a real, medical condition :-)

Hi Max, there's an official word for what you're suffering from in beer-parlance over here in England... Silicacenophobia: fear of an empty glass
