For 500 years Germany’s famous Beer Purity Law has been protecting the country’s beer drinkers from contaminants, chemicals and any other additives that unsavory merchants might have thought of adding. But the law, or Reinheitsgebot, which marked its 500th anniversary last Friday, has been unable to protect the country’s 1,350 brewers and the proud industry from a modern plague: health consciousness.

    All the Muslims they imported will put out a fatwa telling the Germans they can't drink.

    1. Hmm, maybe the great amount of Muslims is messing up the stats...they probably don't break it out.

    Poor Skip he truly doesn't get it.

    Why would anyone with any sense learn German?
    What a waste of time

    Funny I was talking your life.
    This board is meaningless and only serves to waste time.

    I have read some of your past posts, it saddens me that your parents were lucky enough to immigrate to a great place only to have their spawn leech off the Gov't in their adult life. Bragging you're getting the Gov't to pay for you to study abroad is shameful. I'd be embarrassed to tell anyone. Seems like you don't have any conscience though. Too bad they didn't teach you stealing was wrong.

    My parents migrate.... aaaah yeah no!
    Not even close.

    Leeching off the government.
    Indeed.

    But you are right that this board is meaningless and only serves to waste time.
    And yet here you are.

    I very much hope I never meet any of your expectations for life. I've seen how boring yours is. Beige and linear mate.

    Not very good at all.

    It would be impossible for you to see my life.

    Leeching indeed.

    I find it sickening.
