    What the fuck good does food do anyone get realistic man!

    In Mazloos hierarchy food comes long after beer in the pyramid.

    I believe this picture illustrates the lengths to which people will go to get a beer proving it is more important.

    We still don't know how much a pint costs in either, USA or UK. So how much does it cost then?

    In Cyprus, a pint in a pub costs between 1.25 and 1.50 pounds. Today I bought a 24x 330ml crate of Imported Carlsberg for 7.99 from a supermarket. The current exchange rate makes this about US$18 or 9.50 UK pounds.

    It depends what kind of pub, if it's happy hour, etc.

    Generally I'd say about £2.30 for a bog standard pint - carlsberg, tennents, etc.

    I think the pound = dollar thing is pretty true, although recently things in the US seem to have been getting cheaper.

    An example - I've been looking at handheld GPSr's recently.

    In the UK a magellan eXplorist 500 - RRP £350 - cheapest shop (not ebay, etc) £270
    In the US - RRP can't find it anywhere =/ - cheapest shop $165

    Tallinn's quite a funny place to visit. Watching all the Finns stocking up on booze.

    In finland a pint of beer in the bar will set you back 2.5-5 euro depending on the sleeziness/location of the bar. Standard price in a standard bar is 3.5-4.5 euro. In nightclubs etc the price of a pint of beer isn't really much higher than in regular bars unlike some countries.

    If you go to Helsinki you would be adviced to visit Kallio and specifically the more sleezy part, although Kallio is becoming so trendy it is becoming unsleezed. Although it is filled with regular bars too you can still find a sleezy bar where you can drink 'cheap'.

    But then again you get used to ordering a pint of beer, slamming 5 euro on the table and get a small coin back.

    In the supermarket you have to shop around a bit.

    In Prisma you get a crate of 24 bottles (33cl) of Koff for 15.90€

    How interconnected is the transportation system for a foreigner to get around in Norway? If I landed in Oslo do you think I'd be able to take a bus to say, Ringsaker without knowing any Norwegian?

    From what I hear, connections are great throughout Europe. And something one acquaintance of mine told me (dunno if it's really true): The smaller the country, the more likely they'll learn English, because they figure it's highly unlikely anyone will learn their small little language. I don't know how this would apply for Norway.

    But either way, I would take the common courtesy of learning some primitive Norwegian, such as "Hello", "Excuse me, I don't speak Norwegian well", and "One beer, please".

    It's similar here with Stromstad Sweden(where they have the nearest wine and spirits shop) if you go in there on the weekend or a holiday all you hear is norweigan get there too late and you may find your favorites sold out.

    Valich;
    The public transport system is very good and just about everybody speaks english. I got around like that at first and I have an Austrailian friend who still does even after being here 6 years.

    Anywhere between £1.80-£2.40 up here in the grim North. Don't know what all them fancy London types pay - probably around £300, the mugs.

    By sleezy do you mean authentic? Have they all got big beards and if I buy them a pint will they tell me all about the sea and what a cruel mistress she is?

    Well all we need is the current avg price for a pint in the US. When I was bartending in Philadelphia back in 95 a pint was about $2.75-4.00 depending on the brew and the bar. Haven't been to a bar in the US in 6-7 years

    Yes, authentic. Local drunks, struggling arty types, rockers, and trendy hip people like me.

    Our more authentic establishments are filled with stabby-looking, drug-crazed, criminal psychopaths who want to chat with you about the possibility of bottling you over the head and breaking your jaw because you were staring at their girlfriend (you weren't).

    Is this also the case in Finland?

    No, then you have to go to Kotka.
