(when speaking about my 6 pack abs and health.) Wish beer didn't make you fat in the stomach area.

Low carb beer ..
Michelob Ultra .. Miller 64 .. etc ..

Ha. No thanks tongue.gif

I prefer the real, thick stuff that has high alcohol content. The complete opposite of low carb beer frown.gif
I'm a beer connoisseur. I drank so much that I had a beer belly. I looked pregnant! No joke. I had tons of heart burn and other health problems so I cleaned up my act and got exercising and dieting. Lost 50 lbs. and became super skinny. Now I'm into bulking up with muscle, so I'm trying to gain weight. Healthy, muscle weight of course. I never, ever want to have a beer belly again. It was gross.

Right now I'm into sour beers. They're not really popular in America, only a handful of breweries make sour beers. Wonder how much carbs they have rolleyes.gif
One of my favorite sours is the Petrus Aged Red. To me, it tastes like a sour cherry coke.


Off topic, I know. Sorry smile.gif

Yuck...drink Scotch...no aftertaste...an assortment of flavors on top of raw alcohol. My sons look at me funny when we drink it neat. They still want sweeteners or something else to take away the attention of the real kick of aquavit flavored to perfection by crazy Scotsman.

haha. Hey, I'm only 29! I'm not at that point yet tongue.gif

Scotch is my least favorite of liquors though. I prefer tequila and vodka. Then gin and rum. Scotch would be last :sorry:
I guess I prefer the lighter liquors, clear in color.

It might prevent beer bellies though. Never heard of a "scotch belly" tongue.gif

While drinking the beer, duplicate all the actions you see on the TV. You'll lose weight.

Love gun fire but the thing that struck me odd was that Stonebridge and Scott were using suppressed weapons at the airfield, you could see the tubes and hear the suppressed rounds but as soon as they left the airfield all of a sudden their guns sounded normal without ever removing the silencers:D
Another good episode but this one was more transitional than the rest, Dalton may be losing it but I hope they can keep her on the show, she is a bitch but dang I am loving me some Rona Mitra, what a banging body!!

If you like the noise those autos make, you should check out the bank robbery scene in Heat, it remains to this day my go to "come check this sh*t out " scene .....ever...!

That's almost certainly because its Labor Day weekend and also the opening week of the college football season.

I was thinking the same thing, lots of plot twists, thinking maybe I should have not had that last Beam and coke:) but Dalton was right about the whole situation.

I'm wondering if this is going to be the "1st" season that aired in GB that was about John Porter.

That would be very interesting indeed!
Really enjoyed the Porter character- hated to see him go out the way he did....

Thanks, she is on the mend but she did look like she went a couple rounds in the ring and lost. After having repeated issues with sinus infections she had cysts, polyps,and blockage removed and while the doctor was in there she had a little rhinoplasty done, something she has always wanted. On the minus side, I could have bought a sweet front projector and black diamond zero edge screen for what that cost:eek:

Back to the topic at hand, we did get to Strike Back last night and I am not sure I like where this is going. We went from the middle east and Muslim terrorists and now the IRA is involved and the new section 20 head has already been kidnapped one episode from Dalton getting killed. I'm sure it's all going to come together in the end though but it is a bit scattered at the moment. I did, however, like the opening fly-over shot of Budapest.

On top of that, the rocket scientists who accompanied one of the world's most dangerous and violent terrorists to the bathroom let her lock herself in a stall, which produced predictably disastrous results. Strike Back is always exciting and a lot of fun but is often really dumb.

As Gwsat says above, this is one of those shows that I don't watch for intricate and smart plots. I just assume they will do something stupid (like the bathroom deal and not thinking that the delay at the airport was a bad omen and putting their guns out of reach before they had her back from the bathroom and not searching her after the bathroom trip) so that we can have exciting action. Banshee is another show like this. As I said in that thread, I forget about logic and just enjoy the trashy, trashy ride.
