    New year resolutions are a load of hogwash but goals for the entire year? Same thing worded differently? I think not.

    Mine - in no particular order.

    If you eat enough garlic, your opponent will need to take some breaks away from the board just to be rid of the horrible stench for a few minutes, thus reducing their thinking time at the board. 😛

    1. Brew more beer ~ (you can never have too much beer)
    2. lose another 10 Kgs ~ (that's wasteful... you should invest it, not lose it)
    3. go more hillwalking ~ (hills in the US are stationary... they can't walk)
    4. stay as far away from balloon heads as possible ~ (oh please... pick a realistic goal for #4)

    I have too much beer, about 40 500ml bottles of it, but it is tasty. A Scottish style ale with emphasis on malt flavours rather than hops (we developed this because hops don't grow here and we were in the past too poor to import them)

    I want my male organ to be reduced 5 centimeters, at least, so
    I can be normal.

    That's my 2015 goal.
