Chili, chili, chili beans in pinane! :D

Your new avatar looks like a mix between a chemical diagram and the constellation of Orion. Colour me confused! :-X

Constellation... hm, it rather looks like a lame Bootes. :-D

I had a brick game like this: http://i92.fastpic.ru/big/2017/0802/78/a6620a49b4489ef02945094f18477678.jpg - most of my classmates had a similar one, reached top of its popularity in 1993-94. We played a lot even at classes. :-)

I played Porsche the most, then NFS III. I also played Hot Pursuit II a lot, though never with the police, only against them. I also had High Stakes and NFS I, though I didn't play them too often. Only a friend of mine had NFS II SE, but we played together a lot. Since the first Underground, I haven't touched any of the 'new' versions, however, I still kept on playing Porsche for years.

Pripps Blå/SWE (after visiting Sweden, I managed to find out the brand name)
Ah, that was a staple when I was living there. I had forgotten about it!

The UK has been swept by the "craft beer" trend, which means every pub has different beers on rotation. That's great, some are really interesting and tasty, but then they are gone and impossible to find :|

In Sweden, the 'staple' beers are rather mediocre or  bit worse. From the 'cheaper' cathegory (still expensive for Hungarian pockets), Mariestad's Dunkel was the best. Pripps Blå was below average.

On the other hand, Oppigård's craft beers were surprisingly good and very tasty. They simply (New Sweden IPA, Amarillo APA, Indian Tribute) ashamed the craft beers of traditional beer-producing countries like Slovakia, Czechia, Germany and maybe even Belgium. They are expensive (around 2.5 EUR/0.33 l) but so fvcking great!

Interesting world map: the most popular beer brand for each country. Not surprisingly, in Hungary it is the famous Borsodi. :)
http://vinepair.com/features/external/beer-world-map-3000-full-web.jpg

The ones which I've already tasted: Borsodi (HUN), Tuborg (DEN), Zlaty Bazant (SVK), Gambrinus (CZE), Lasko (SLO), Heineken (NED), Kronenbourg (FRA), Guinness (IRL), Birra Morretti (ITA),  Budweiser (made in USA, most popular in CAN), Corona (MEX), Chang (THA), Ozujsko (CRO), Kamenitza (BUL), Efes Pilsen (TUR), Jelen (SRB).

The German looks to be Oettinger, which sounds surprising.

I wonder about the favorite beers in Montenegro and Romania, because I'm sure that I've already tasted them. The Bosnian and the Albanian ones maybe also.

Update:
I've tasted since my previous post:
Mythos/GRE
Stiegl/AUT
Cruzcampo/ESP
Sagres/POR
Kingfisher/IND
Feldschlößchen/GER, most popular in Switzerland
Ringnes/NOR
Tyskie/POL
Carling/GBR
Oettinger/GER
Pripps Blå/SWE (after visiting Sweden, I managed to find out the brand name)

+1 Asahi/JPN, though I tasted only a version brewed in Italy (Japanese license)

When you drive home from abroad (Germany and Czech Republic) without a driving license (having lost it, got a piece of toilet paper from the Prague Hungarian embassy which is totally invalid for driving), you just start to feel that before university exams, you wasn't really afraid enough of being failed...  :-X

My favourite player is myself.

This is a game to be played in cheap pubs, not a sport.

When I was a university student, I used to play a lot in cheap pubs with friends. Nowadays I rarely play it with amateur meteorology fans on special meetings (once a year on even more rarely). But last week, I bought a small and cheap darts table with my wife, brought to our cellar to play there. A perfect place for it.

Stunts Meetings / Re: Argentinian Stunts Meeting - June 2011
« on: March 21, 2019, 06:03:59 PM »
This year I'm travelling to Argentina for six days (30 June-05 July).

I am really envious...

Now or never... At 36, I'm starting to be afraid that my health/financial/family situation will be rather worse in the future than now. Time to gain the once-in-a-lifetime opportunities...
Btw, my flight tickets (VIE-FRA-EZE-MDZ and back) were ~900 EUR - perhaps not fully unattainable even from HUN. (There will be a very similar opportunity with a solar eclipse in Dec 2020!) Just for seeing the southern skies, Namibia is much cheaper, I see many astro-enthusiasts travelling there. But that country does not seem too interesting for me, and does not get any solar eclipse nowadays.

My only desire was to visit a non-European continent at least once in my lifetime, but that was fulfilled in 2011 by flying to the USA. (+ 2013: on a ship on the Bosporus, 2016: Canary Island) Now I should set a new goal, but South America or Australia/New Zealand would be too unreachable I guess (though I can afford visiting them). I'm not interested in real Asia and afraid of real Africa. Though I would like to see the Southern sky once with at least a binocular.

In the case I've got one, but it would require some fine-tuning, I trust more CTG's capabilities... :D

Just sent one to dreadnaut. Not an easy one for GAR.

+10: Jaguar (how surprising... :D)
-5: Vette
-5: Ranger

Second (?) year without an Indy race... remember... Stunts racing is not Stunts racing without Indy.
