    Someone shook it, opened it in several places with a pointed opener, one can imagine what happened!

    Exactly,

    even without shaking it it was impossible to pour without spilling or creating a giant head on the beer. Probably just as well as it was fizzy swill!

    Default 10 things that don't happen now, but were once good...

    1) Women who knew how to cook, because they'd been brought up in an established food culture by their parents and grandparents.

    2) Women who dressed like women, and behaved femininely (before 'ladettes' existed).

    3) Shops that weren't open 24/7, 365 because the folk who owned/managed them had a life.

    4) Shoppers who had a life themselves, and so didn't automatically expect shops to be open 24/7, 365.

    5) When cars didn't all look the same.

    6) When people were less stressed and had more time to themselves.

    7) When people were happier with simpler lives and less material possessions.

    8) When technology didn't fundamentally control how people lived.

    9) When summers had extended periods of sunshine and warmth.

    10) When kids left school knowing how to count and spell proficiently, and understood the meaning of civility and good manners - and most importantly then instilled those values in their children.


    Let's hear your 10!

    Sometimes incompetence is useful. It helps you keep an open mind.
