    MSG occurs naturally in hundreds of foods. If it were really a neurotoxin we'd all be dead. And, why obfuscate the issue by bringing the FDA and marijuana into the discussion?

    I was in Ayutthaya his morning and it was crisp and clear with a bright sun perfect for photographing old piles of brick and laterite. By 10:00 AM it had clouded over with a nasty haze. By that time...

    Yeah, that Schlitz was a killer. When I was living in Truk (now Chuuk) that's about all you could get. They couldn't pronounce Ls, though, so it was always Kamen cigarettes and Schnitz beer.

    Indeed. A long debunked myth that somehow persists.

    So, two questions:


    Why does Asian beer affect you so?
    What beers do you drink?

    Right. I could just use a packet of yeast. But, somehow the uncertainty and variety of flavor offered by sourdough intrigues me. And, the bread tastes really good.

    They managed to fix it within half an hour and even sent me an SMS telling me that the problem had been solved.

    That seems to be the way most expats I know in Korat feel. Personally, I don’t like Leo. I prefer Chang. I buy a Leo now and then to give it a chance, but I always go back to Chang.

    It's a scheme to consume less calories and it seems to be working. All the consumer level beers in Thailand suck anyway, so diluting them with ice makes little difference in the flavor.
