Question of the Week
Homemade Booze
SpanishFly writes, "I have a 'make your own absinthe' kit here, fucking terrified of making it...

"Tell us your stories of when you got so drunk on homemade mead you pissed in the cupboard.
Or tell us about the time you tried to buy wine stabiliser but got chased out of the friendly merchants shop because that compound is used to bash cocaine.
Tell us about the trials and tribulations of not being able to afford 4 cans of strongbow and couldn't brew your own poison so you got pissed on antifreeze and the next day pissed in your own mouth."
Thanks SpanishFly. MAKE THE ABSINTHE

Personalised Christmas Cards
It's fast approaching Christmas and public figures are sending out painfully posed personalised cards. So lets mess with them and come up with some new ones.
Politicians, royalty, public figures who do this thing are all fair game.

Question of the Week
More Terrible Hotels
Actually paid to sleep somewhere that turned out to be less compfy, private or clean than the bench in the park outside? Tell us all about it.

Or perhaps you'd like to boast about getting upgraded to a sea-view suite next door to Stevie Wonder, like my colleague keeps doing? Over and over...

Smoking is dropping out of fashion, so that probably means it's cool again.

Spend the week coughing up pictures that show how awesome this deadly habit is.

Question of the Week
Weddings Part II
Attending a wedding is like being handed a licence to act like a twat. Oh how I laughed when I sobered up and realised I'd nicked most of the plates and cutlery from the posh hotel lunch and those vague memories of stealthily exiting like a cat-burglar had in fact involved falling out of the hotel, knives and forks clattering onto the steps.

Tell us more of your wedding stories.

B3ta newsletter issue number six hundred and forty two... Would it be cool if we just started the numbers back again from zero? It's a bit scary. Anyway, quality stuff this week includes taking the piss out of Cameron Carpenter, taking the geotags out of your data and taking potshots at a hapless conductor in a game inexplicably based on the 1812 Overture.

Control Freaks
Peej writes, "My mate Tony's dad used to weigh the breakfast cereal in the morning to make sure everybody got an equal amount and the pack provided the exact amount of servings advertised on the packet. I learned from this that the recommended serving size on a cereal packet isn't enough to feed a sparrow."

Sound familiar? Tell us more.
