theres too much liquid in a pint anyway.
And always feel a bit short changed when I have my Ribena.
Annoying. When I was in Gothenburg this was the measure in most pubs, and the beer was piss weak and expensive.
...altho who the hell is going to order 75ml of wine?
In related news, I recently discovered that IMAX Southbank now ONLY sell wine in 125ml measures yet charge the same as they used to for 175ml measures - watch out for more of the same when when these size changes come into practice.
The point is that a plane gets its thrust from the engines and the wheels move as a result of that. They aren't powered.
So theoretically it will take off and the wheels will just be dragged along behind it.
damn you alex
