Also, there's a "fun" case you come across early in one's law degree which explains that if you can't physically get drunk off something (e.g. a low alcohol beer you'd need to drink a physically impossible amount to get drunk) then it isn't covered by licensing laws
Must have been before the current Sale of Liquor Act which sez:
Liquor means any fermented, distilled, or spirituous liquor (including spirits, wine, ale, beer, porter, honeymead, stout, cider, and perry) that is found on analysis to contain 1.15 percent or more alcohol by volume
Alcohol is in fact, a solvent
So is water. Your point is?
Are solvents a new target of chemicalism - if it dissolves stuff it must be bad. (Almost all liquids are solvents for something, either polar or non-polar).
I personally don't have a problem with dairies such as Shalimar not being able to sell booze.
So you think it's ok, as a knee-jerk political reaction, to take a hard-working family's livelihood away? Because it might (read won't) stop a few people being drunk and obnoxious.
how will this state get mail delivered?
Serbia got mail when it was under sanction by the rest of the world. You could even order stuff from Amazon with an address like: 11 Milosevic St, Belgrade, Croatia. Amazon would ship it, the Croat post would get it and think: "stupid yanks don't know what country Belgrade's in" and redirect the package.
Today, you can post stuff to Northern Cyprus, which is unrecognised by the rest of the world.
I live within a short distance of several small beer/wine outlets and have noticed no problem with noise or anything else from them. If anything, Hell Pizza, which doesn't sell alcohol, creates more of a nuisance.
I actually consider restricting alcohol sales to large businesses to be a form of semi-conscious racism. Why should the nice Indian family at Shalimar have their livelihood taken away, whilst large overseas multinationals can sell as much booze as they want?
Prohibition (even partial) doesn't work for any drug including alcohol. The reason Continental European countries have less of a booze "problem" than we do is not some magic genetic factor. It's because they have a social system that reduces the number of people with the underlying problems that promote problem drug use.
We need to start by building a better society, not by taking individual rights away.
There's quite a lot of industry in the Lakes. Bloody great plutonium factory for starters (they do tours). Plus a shipyard in Barrow that builds nuclear submarines. Making nukes is a profitable business and a source of much employment in the region.
Thank you for the VU boot link!!
The first few pages were full with relentless Mac vs. PC stories
The same thing was played out in the pages of "BBC User" and "ZX Spectrum User" in about 1983.
Hey, thanks for posting that paper. It was great.
How about a steampunk styled computer where the cogs and wheels run faster as you make it do more work?
Or a system that senses how busy you are and fills your space with flaming torches accordingly.

I find Gerglish so much clearer than Chinglish. However they should find a native English speaking translator or text consultant.
