Archaeologists discover ancient beer factory in Egypt
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Thanks Min. Hopefully they'll publish quickly. It's not like they currently have a whole lot of irons in the fire.

My eldest went on a tour of Soweto and was offered the chance to drink at a Shebeen (supposedly illegal beer stube - so illegal there were tourist tours of it). The beverage of choice was "kaffirbeer", allegedly the oldest type of beer in the world and the one allegedly drunk in Egypt etc. It's served in milk cartons cut in half. \he said he considered himself lucky to come back alive, being the foulest brew he had ever consumed, like an extremely bitter version of soapy dishwater.
