Alcoholic beverages are considered contraband, and always have been. In war time, though, officers tend to look the other way unless things get out of hand. It is also (and always has been) a court martial offense to be drunk on duty. In extreme circumstances, it can be considered treason.
I was in the Infantry for 4.5 years and we were allowed to have alcohol in the barracks, if over 21 - never contraband. The onpost PX sells Everclear for phucks sake. We were not allowed to be drunk on duty, but it was never, ever enforced with court martial. I used to get drunk with our LT all the time.
It is disgusting to notice the increase in the quantity of coffee used by my subjects, and the amount of money that goes out of the country as a consequence. Everybody is using coffee; this must be prevented. His Majesty was brought up on beer, and so were both his ancestors and officers. Many battles have been fought and won by soldiers nourished on beer, and the King does not believe that coffee-drinking soldiers can be relied upon to endure hardships in case of another war.
If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
Jeez, maybe they should have made it an ad for not eating a cholesterol laden 1/2 lb burger with fries. That's got to be 2000 Calories sitting on that table. I guess vegan's probably aren't much of drinkers either.
Well ... yeast isn't a plant, it's a fungus - which is the same domain (Eukaryota), but a different Kingdom (Fungi rather than Plantae) - and that's what makes beer into beer, and wine into wine. Without it, beer is a thin soup, and wine is just grape juice.
And Beer can be "fined" (the suspended yeast removed) with Isinglass, which is a substance obtained from the dried swim bladders of fish. (Most British beers are fined with Isinglass).
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
On Adsense, you now also have to verify your sites, not so that the ads will be shown, but to actually earn the revenue off the ads, the ads still get shown regardless. So now, you have to add or at least it appears you have to add each and every blogspot domain to receive any click through advertising. Using Analytics and Adsense reporting, I am now up to 43 domains added to the list of verified domains.
I don't know how many there are, but Google not making this very end user friendly. They could have at least let us use wildcards, so I could simply add http://qatar-is-calling.blogspot.*
I haven't found any specific guidance on dealing with blogger country redirects and adsense site verification
Something to be aware of if you are doing something similar and haven't looked or checked for a while!
