I don't think general people can post stuff...could be wrong but I'd also think that postage would be outright horrible.
From that store i place 1litre Asahi x2, 6 pack of 2 different beers, and two different cartons...Shipping was about $38 to here..Not bad considering how much all that shit would weigh.
Today I bought First Harvest Cascade..Limited run and only 4 bottles so not cheap. Will keep 2 for a while and crack open later. And some stout from 4 pines. Fuckin cold here 9.9C so I need something to warm me up!
fuck knows what im drinking this weekend. You tried tui pale ale ? its some indian shit but its pretty cheap
i cant believe how much you guys in oz pay for booze! over here nearly every supermarket which your never more then 5 miles from if that,sells 3 crates of top quality brands,guiness,stella ,heiniken,strongbow...etc for the equivalent of like $26 aus
and 9.9 aint cold ...in england if it gets to ten everyone starts rockin shades and boardshorts haha!
hold ya can up n stand up
yeah im gonna go perth to stay for a bit when i get over my newfound fear of flying, i wouldnt say quality of lifes neccesarilly better, just nicer weather,better economy my man reckons he could find me an electrical apprenticeship in days!
And we can't get our booze in a supermarket either which i think sucks balls. We need to change this. But i think there was mad protest with the idea of it. But like Pulse says our wages are high...Australia has it good overal and in turn we pay for it in general.
what do you mean it isnt no 9.9f? that would be far colder then 9.9c! and about 6 months of the year in uk is 8 degrees or less mann........its wierd though you cant buy booze in supermarkets,can you buy fags there?
Because I don't live where we measure in F...we measure in Celsius here in Australia. 9.9C = 49.82F...ahahaha And of course 9.9F would be colder when you convert it into Celsius..It's like -12.27F...lol
Yes of course we can buy fags at our supermarket. We can buy "fake" booze at the supermarket though.Laaammee! We should be able to get booze in our supermarkets i think. I seen a few places that have bottle shops attached to the supermarket though...BUT still completely different shops.
the whole of the uk use celcius ...and that sucks for you guys, even little shops over here you can buy tins of booze, its more expensive though, like $(aus for 6 500ml cans of decent lager or cider
sorry $9 aus *
i gotta ask...... is it true a 40oz is only 2 n a bit pint (or just over a litre) i really wanna know , i think it must be more, cos everyone talkin about gettin smashed of 3, which would only be like 6 pints?....
yup, a 40oz is 1.18 litres.
im not sounding like 'ohh i can out drink everyone here' but everyones like 2-3 and im wasted, i could easily do five of them and still be standin......10 pints ,but england does have a massive problem with drinking and we dont seem to stop once we start, ive been told by an american, and a few aussies that we british can generally hold our booze better then there countrymen because about 80% of british men 18+ drink everyday likee going down to your local pub for a few........i dunno how true that is but imo every american / australasian ive met cant keep up, and us english cant keep up with alot european countries,when i went to bulgaria they drink like 150ml of rakir every meal and its like 60-80% and doesnt even touch them, its just there culture ....
yes, most of the people in north america who drink a few everyday are labeled "alcoholics"
most people have a couple drinks with lunch or dinner at most, maybe getting drunk on the weekend.... or maybe like me, they drink when nobody is looking and then chew some gum and try to act normal.
none of this applies to university students.
