Come on El Reg, this was news on all the other sites over a week ago.
Why are you always late with your some of your articles?
An enterprising Scot has built a PC cooled by Irn-Bru*, and called it the “Aye Mac”. John Lawson, who runs an Edinburgh computer repair service called PC Doctor, decided to create the machine as a promotion and/or homage to Scotland's other famous drink. Sadly Irn-Bru's not the actual coolant – a liquid with the same colour …
I used to love dandelion and burdock. Going to my Nan's for tea, only having to eat a token sandwich before moving on to the important matter of Mr Kipling's French Fancies and Cherry Bakewells. Not to mention the Jaffa Cakes. Although I'll not forget the taste of crab paste in a hurry...
But then I had some recently. And it coats your teeth with a layer of fur. It makes Coke seem healthy in comparison. I seem to remember thinking Irn Bru was awful, but haven't had it in years.
The oddest pop I had was in Austria. It was garlic flavoured lemonade.
Yeah, I used to drink it when it was two bob a bottle, and sixpence back on the empty. So if you could find four neighbours with empties, you took it back to the shop and got a free one.
Barrs and Crystal Springs were the local pop in Wakefield; Fentiman's is some modern concoction.
Nope, those are honest-to-god nixies all right.
Russian ones. You can tell by the way that the 5 looks like an inverted 2.........because it is thanks to the cheapskate Soviets. There's a lot of NOS nixies sloshing around in the ex-iron curtain places, so they're popular for home builds like this.
 Who would never build two things when one could be made to do the job with a hammer and/or by sending anyone who complained about the obvious bodge to the gulags.
"Irn-Bru (in an ice cold glass bottle, as shown in the picture) is the most effective hangover cure we Scots know. Preferably washing down a roll and square sausage."
Depends - if your night has been spent drinking vodka & irn bru, the hangover cure doesn't work so well.
And it's lorne, not square sausage. I could just about accept the inexplicable term "roll on sausage"...
