Where's my spray bottle with water in it? Bad tonyp, bad! No links to HuffPo in this house! Keep that garbage outside!

;-) It's a neat article! Although I'm only half joking about the huffpo stuff. Can't stand that site.

Too funny Phil.  I know we lean in opposite directions, but I find myself agreeing with you on quite a few things - dislike of Huffing & Puffington being the latest.

So, I have to ask; was Frankenstein simply Einstein being frank?

HEYOOOO!

It's a professional thing - as a hard-working web dev I can't stand link baiting in any form. Of course, where we might not agree is that I think pretty much all American-based "news" sites are crap. Internationally, it depends. The BBC and France24 are great at just giving you info. Full disclosure, I work for F24 and so consider it the best news source ever, and I listen to World News from the BBC on the radio every morning.

Also I am very get-offa-my-lawn about website comments, something too many sites have these days. Too much hatred and not enough insight, but then again that's the world for you today. I didn't read the comments from the article linked above, but knowing sites like these, there's going to be someone saying BEER IS BAD and then another person calling that person a socialist/communist/fascist/racist or something.

I almost never read the comments, except when I want to be annoyed/entertained.  But I went back and checked this out of curiosity - 5 comments, all positive.

Awesome stuff!

This (the DFH Brewpub) is where Sam conducts all of his R&D. I would love to have Ben's job...every brew is experimental and he can allow his creativity to flow. The DFH Brewpub is where my homebrew club (Delmarva United Homebrewers) hold our monthly meetings and there's always great fun to be had there. One of my favorite places to be.
