    Cold Ale - The Blokes' Thread!

    Bah, every time I come in here, that girly, "No Boys Allowed" thread is somewhere near the top. God knows what goes on in there - probably the typical girlie stuff about love, babies, quiche, who has a crush on whom and those things no Real Bloke [TM] would ever stoop to discuss.

    What we need is a place for a man to pull up a chair, draw a fresh beer, and shoot the breeze about the important things in life - hunting, fishing, sports, beer, fine scotch, sports, almost-raw fillet steaks, sports, the latest Sports Illustrated photo shoot, Miss World, poker, gambling and sports.

    Kind of a sin city without any women to keep us in line!

    C'mon, men, can we keep a thread alive with real blokey subjects, or are we a bunch of wannabe girls who'd rather sip a cappachino than stand up and be stereotypes?

    First off - beer is possibly the best chance christians have of proving a god exists. How something so beautiful - when made properly, which doesn't mean in some gigantic factory - can be made out of such unassuming ingredients, is a true miracle!

    Like good wine, good beer should be savoured, not guzzled - and the best thing to do that with a really cold bottle of micro-brewed dark ale.

    Other people may differ in opinion, but if so, their opinion won't count anyway!

    Go to work, get married, have some kids, pay your taxes, pay your bills, watch your tv, follow fashion, act normal, obey the law and repeat after me: "I am free."

    bah, dont need dark ale to be really chilled - leave that to the beers for women (eg coors light, bud - well really any american wannabe beer)

    however that is not a serious enough topic for disagreement. Pass another of those barely cooked steaks over this way & where's the rugby ball gone?
    There once was a scotsman named Drew
    Who put too much wine in his stew
    He felt a bit drunk
    And fell off his bunk
    And landed smack into his shoe

    The last attempt of a Blokes thread died miserably pretty fast.

    It's the first and possibly the last time I step in here, but I had to say this: a chess club would help you more.

    Good luck!

    (Funny thing is ... I read "a thread for men" and first thing I see is a girl inside! haha! that's indeed a place for men You begin well, very well.)

    In fact, I think girls NEED this. Men don't. That's my thought, and this is why I'll possibly not come back.

    (It'll stink soon! )

    Arrr!~

    Cultural bias - we drink our beer ice cold here.

    Quite right!

    Rugby season started here a couple of weeks back - Super 14.

    Well, it wouldn't help me any, since I can't play it.

    But feel free to talk about it. Is Kasparov the best player ever?

    Nah, it'll be the best thread ever!

    (so long as we can find some posters...)

    Now, look you! Just because the girlie thread has 8 million views does not give you any bragging rights at all!

    Yeah I've seen that no boys allowed thread and always thought, there are roughly double the women than men here on lit net and they need their own thread? Count me in too.

    Kilt is right about our beer iin the US, at least the major brands. If you try the small micro breweries you can find some good beer in America.

    But cheers.

    I step in and I immediately have the urge to grunt and spit. I think i'll go back to the coffee talk thread.

    Which only goes to show that, no matter what men do, women can't leave them alone.

    Nice looking beer, but I'd be shooting the barman with that much froth!

    And Kirilenko - by a mile!

    Of retired players, Steffi Graf. If there's one thing I hate about Andre Agassi, it's that he married two women I could fall madly in love with.
