For my first try at Hogwarsh (circly-R symbol) I will choose A. Just because it sounds good to me. So.

I like N most.

And Vanguard, , I asked the very same circley R question a couple of months back and this is how I learnt to do it from the carpals!
You have to hit Alt and then, while still holding it down, key in 0174 on the RIGHT number pad without a space in between, anywhere; Like this , Voila! I believe tsuwm, called it, automagical! And it truly is! Oh and remember to have Num Lock on; it doesn't work otherwise!

Re:I learnt to do it from the carpals!

i am not one to take much notice of the title the BB bestows, since a stranger, can on their first post add excitment to this board.. but i love being a carpel.

I have to go with H, because there's nothing like fine aged urine to enchance the flavor and potency of a good ale!...I've seen urine cellars full of it.

I don't wonder, of troy! And it is a most descriptive title, isn't it! And what's more, each one of you proud title owners is most deserving of it.

I will probably never have the carpal, but will be more than happy to settle for the carp! (N-nit pick)

I'll go with K Short, to-the-point, obvious, probably wrong, but:

I don't believe any of these definitions. H was disgusting. I would think drinking urine would kill you. If this turns out to be the correct definition, I would like to know which brands are lanted ale so I can avoid them.

No...urine is sterile...saved many a thirsting soul adrift at sea in lifeboats. And the Tudor cooks used child's urine as a food coloration (guess you didn't see the thread, yet).

and Urea, or urik acid, a component of urine, is commonly found in hand/face creams and cosmetics..check the ingredients of your favorite moisturizer.
