    My poor dad, bless him, asked me a question today. He asked "What's so fattening about beer?" When he looks at things he looks at the ingredients to determine if it's good for you or not, I don't think he see's any fat in beer so therefore it can't be fattening! If only dad, if only lol.

    well with me its not the ingredients in the beer that do the damage, but the ones in the pizza/curry/burger etc that it makes me want to eat afterwards!!!
