    There are multiple Belgian Trappist Ales on that chart. Orval Trappist Ale. Trappistes Rochefort 8. La Trappe Quadrupel.

    @RenThing - Actually, the Trappist is listed in at least two different varieties, one off of Belgian Pale Ale (Orval Trappist), and one off of Belgian Strong Dark Ale (Trappistes Rochefort 8).

    Edit: Oddbill beat me to the punch, and found another. D'oh!

    Wedged in between all the sports and weather crap in the UK at the moment there are some serious banking shit going down.

    I would point people to zerohedge - Will The British Bankers' Association Ban Barclays As It Said It Would? (Remember to read the Zerohedge manifesto - just to know where the reader should stand)

    I personally don't think anything will change, in the same way 2008 didn't change a thing, especially when you are dealing with people like this.

    Chimay is a trappist, too.

    (Always find another beer, one of the most useful skills there is.)

    No Aussie beers either, not even the sublime Tennant's Milk Stout.

    Do we need a new Beer/Falling-Down Juice thread, you think? Just done a search for one and they're all ex-threads.

    Dark matter’s tendrils revealed

    Direct measurement of a dark-matter ‘filament’ confirms its existence in a galaxy supercluster.

    A ‘finger’ of the Universe’s dark-matter skeleton, which ultimately dictates where galaxies form, has been observed for the first time. Researchers have directly detected a slim bridge of dark matter joining two clusters of galaxies, using a technique that could eventually help astrophysicists to understand the structure of the Universe and identify what makes up the mysterious invisible substance known as dark matter.

    Pakistan shuns physicist linked to 'God particle'
    Pakistan's only Nobel laureate helped develop the theoretical framework that led to the apparent discovery of the subatomic "God particle" last week, yet his legacy has been largely scorned in his homeland because of his religious affiliation.
    Adbus Salam, who died in 1996, was once hailed as a national hero for his pioneering work in physics and work that guided the early stages of Pakistan's nuclear program. Now his name is even stricken from school textbooks because he was a member of the Ahmadi sect that has been persecuted by the government and targeted by Taliban militants, who view them as heretics.

    Sounds of Northern Lights are born close to ground

    - Our research proved that, during the occurrence of the northern lights, people can hear natural auroral sounds related to what they see. In the past, researchers thought that the aurora borealis was too far away for people to hear the sounds it made. This is true. However, our research proves that the source of the sounds that are associated with the aurora borealis we see is likely caused by the same energetic particles from the sun that create the northern lights far away in the sky. These particles or the geomagnetic disturbance produced by them seem to create sound much closer to the ground, said Professor Unto K. Laine from Aalto University.

    How Big Music Threatened Startups and Killed Innovation

    An unprecedented new report has detailed how the destruction of Napster chilled a decade’s worth of innovation in the music industry. Through interviews with 31 CEOs, company founders, and VPs who operated in digital music during the period, we hear how Big Music collapsed startups, turned down ‘blank check’ deals, and personally threatened innovators with ruination for both them and their families.

    Vorn, Oddbill, a reader bought me that chart. Hoping to afford a good frame for it soon. For the homebrewer there's also this chart, which is beautiful.
