Oh, and drink ale in pubs. There are SO MANY OPTIONS!
Make sure you try some of the real ales, served using hand pumps (no CO2). Try bitter (it's not really bitter) and mild.
Yes! Warm and flat, this is the way!
Before you knock it, try it!
But beer should not be warm. Typically, it's cellar temperature, which is cool, but not chilled. There may still be pubs that serve beer directly from barrels behind the bar, and that beer would be much closer to room temperature.
Ah, just giving you a hard time. I love cask ales! There are a couple pubs by me that serve them.
@gmporschenut-also-a-fan-of-hondas I feel like pretty much everything is a major problem for the MBTA. I get the distinct impression that (Greenline extension notwithstanding) they finished up in the '80s and really haven't wanted to touch it since. They've added a bunch of commuter rail, but they probably should be trying to convert the densest commuter rail lines to full subway lines. And of course doing something to connect the two train stations.
On the flip side maybe they finally are getting on top of things (for the T at least) with the extension, lots of new rolling stock (even if they just had to pull a bunch from service), and doing some much needed maintenance work?
The air portable or airportable Land Rover was a cut down Series Land Rover, less body, either no doors or only lower section doors, canvas tilt, fold down windscreen, etc... They were designed to be light weight to be slung under helicopters, etc...
Proper name is Land Rover Series III half ton lightweight.
They were lighter, more compact, etc... so you could have soldiers, etc... inside the helicopter with kit and have a Landie or Landie and Sankey trailer or Howitzer and drop them where ever you wanted.
@facw True, but a normal door would just slam closed again damaging only the door and not risking a lot of the other stuff in the process (assuming the wind and/or acceleration wouldn't close it first anyway).
@roundbadge Those are options we didn't consider as youngsters, with a Uhaul truck double-parked on the street in NYC.
Split-queen boxsprings probably existed back then, but we didn't have any clue. We either made them fit (the plaster on ceiling by the steps was already cracked, I swear!!) or left them out on the street.
The rental truck had to be back by 5:00, and we couldn't afford the parking ticket! Your best friend was the one that moved to a first floor apartment with 36" doors.
