Oh please don't even start. I have been all over Europe where everyone drinks the same piss water lager just with a label in a different language. Piss beer is fine and even recommended for certain food pairings (bbq and spicy food). The weak beer has its place and it does not involve you getting on your high horse about how much better you are for not drinking it.

Submission + - "almost unbelievable incompetence" (theregister.co.uk)

An anonymous reader writes: The Register published an article by a former bomb squad man, who offers some harsh words for the perpetrators of the recent UK "car bomb" attacks:

The mindset of a man who's willing to set himself on fire to make a point — as one of the Glasgow terror-clowns seems to have done — but not to spend any effort at all on researching methods is a difficult one to understand. Even if these jokers were illiterate or had no internet access (seems unlikely, one of the suspects is apparently a doctor) they could have at least done a test. In my part of town, fun-loving teenagers burn out a car or two down by the canal every week or so: nobody would notice another one with some nails in it. Such a test would have told these idiots what every bomb-disposal operator and Hollywood effects guy already knows: that petrol, gas etc make for an excellent, photogenic fireball which you can normally be quite close to without ill effects.

Submission + - DVD Jon Unlocks the iPhone

i_like_spam writes: Jon Lech Johansen, aka DVD Jon, has struck again. On his blog, he claims to have activated an iPhone without intiating a contract with AT&T. The activated phone cannot be used for calls through AT&T's network, but all other functionalities are open (iPod, WiFi, etc). He's even created a package to activate your iPhone too!
