    I see the dynamic behind why Modwiz doesn't like to post. People read stuff into what people write that has nothing to do with what he was saying or thinking.

    I was under the impression the topic of Joe was important.

    I'm still speaking directly to you, Fred. Apparently you can't be bothered to return the courtesy. No problem.

    I know plenty of Joe's myself. Joe's who don't mind a discussion about the dynamics surrounding class and culture. Joe's who don't mind a debate. It's cool.

    Hmm... No, not necessarily. Not the way I myself see Joe Sixpack, and believe me, we've got plenty of them around here in the severely gun-restricted Europe as well.

    No, that's not Joe either. Joe is a guy who never bothered to get an extended education. He may be opinionated — and if so, he'll tell you all about his opinions over a couple of beers — but he's not really interested in any type of academic debate.

    Now, a debate about soccer teams or possibly about motorcycles or automobiles, or even about wimmins, that's a whole other issue.

    If the gun restricted European Joe Sixpack lived here I bet he'd start stockpiling. It's an integral part of the mindset, imo.

    For the sake of clarity I will say that the OP contains results from a StartPage search on the term. I pulled quotes from several divergent sources. They are from recent articles, i.e. beer prices and economic indexes; and somewhat older ones, i.e. political.

    I never personally defined the term.

    I don't have a personal definition other than an average guy (whatever that is) or someone who specifically refers to themself that way.

    I have no opinions about this type because I have to know a person first before I form an opinion. As far as groups go, my opinions would be based on the actions of said group and whether their stated values are in alignment or not.

    Here's a funny stat...

    My hometown was named the No. 1 per capita beer guzzling city in America...Back in the 60's in a Playboy article...yeah, really!
    that sounds like madison wisconsin, home of U of W where, back in the day, they sold beer at the student union. I think it was PB that put U of W at the top of the list of party schools in the nation...

    good point, I've posted about this before, Emporia, Kansas...small town with two medium-sized universities and plenty of Joes. Gale Frierson might have some insight into this phenomenon, though I highly suspect he's never imbibed in his life.

    This thread is making me thirsty. Did you know that the Guiness in America is way substandard to the Guiness in Ireland?

    In Ireland, it's rich and so creamy. It's so smooth. American Guiness just isn't quite the same. They changed it a bit for the American market. Sigh.

    I mentioned one time about a beer I was drinking...I refer to it as the best 'natural' beer I've ever tasted. Whatever that means, I'm no connoisseur, just a wannabe soak, as a PhD friend of mine referred to it. Aragorn knows the brand...really good stuff.

    Carlsberg? Tuborg? Or was it a Belgian beer?

    Yeah, but in spite of its name, that's not actually a Belgian beer. As you can read here, it's actually brewed and bottled in the USA.
