Playing Grand Theft Auto IV these days (yeah, yeah, laugh it up), and what did I find in a ramshackle run-down house over in Jersey? Two corny kegs.

The mind boggles as to who decided to model cornies and stick them in the game! Man, I wish I could have taken a screen shot...or taken them with me! :-)

Joakim, still a long way from adulthood...

Did you screw the whore, kill her and then take her money?

For a while, cornies were popular with people making methamphetamines at home. That sounds totally in keeping with the spirit of the game.

Seriously? That would explain it, but it's a lot less funny explanation that I wanted. I was imagining a coder who was also a homebrewer, who snuck this in right under the nose of his superviser. Oh well...

Where was the house? I'd like to check that out for myself.

It's the first mission that takes place in Aldernay/Jersey. Check out the downstairs kitchen :-)

Yikes! I hope that's not too common knowledge! People who drive by my house probably already think I'm distilling with those big SS vessels in my garage, and at any given time I can be cleaning a number of cornies in the driveway. I can just imagine what they are thinking!

I recall a rural meth lab bust a few years ago that made the local TV news here. They showed at least a dozen 5 and 10 gallon cornys that were seized along with a bunch of other stuff.

Mike, you've already been pegged by your neighbors, no sense in fighting it!

So, back to GTA IV: are you supposed to steal all the lab's money and set the lab on fire?

Ummm....nope.

So long, I'm off to Denmark now to judge in the Scandinavian finals! :-)
