I'm moving to Norway

Ok I've been to Norway the once and really loved it, the scenery is awesome, plenty of snow for long periods of the year so some really good skiing and snowboarding can be had. There has only been one problem that has held me back all this time and that was the price of alcohol - it's one of the most expensive places in the world to drink, and I must admit I do like the occasional snifter.

Not anymore though, as a young lady found out one day when she turned on her taps to find not water flowing out but glorious golden beer. Hallelujah, party on!

What really happened was her apartment was above a bar and some considerate fellow had somehow connected up her mains water pipe to the beer line!

Now what I would of done was call up my mates and have a party, unfortunately the bar downstairs managed to get a plumber out to reconnect the water - damn Norwegian efficiency. If that had happened in the UK you would of still been able to party on, as the plumber wouldn't of been able to get to you until a week on Tuesday and still would of shown up 6 hrs late. Then again if it probably has happened already in the US but no-one has noticed as their beer tastes of water anyway!

For the real story and facts go to BBC News

It's been a while

Ok so I've been busy.....not. Just couldn't be motivated to post - well had nothing interesting to put up.

"So why are you posting now?", I hear you say.

Well, because I saw this and I want to see if anyone will/has tried this with any success.

I bring you The TV Sniper

How cool is that just sitting staring out your window changing your neighbours TV channels or turning them off... just watch the TV repair men come in their thousands, well ok tens!

So I'm off to get myself a programmable remote control and a pair of binoculars( despite what some of you may think, I do not own a pair of perving goggles), some shares in Dixons Helpline and visit to a building opposite some flats!
