Mac OS X A few days ago, we concluded (yes, we did!) that it was cool to run Windows 3.1 on your Nokia N95 using Qemu. Of course, the Apple world couldn't stay behind, and now we have one of Apple's obsolete operating systems running on the iPhone: System 7, also using Qemu.

Out of the 2500, 2400 are good, trust me.

No they're not. Unless you have a really liberal definition of good. Based upon my own fairly extensive, but somewhat un-scientific experiments, I'd say that of beer chosen at random has maybe 20% chance of being really good, and perhaps a 10% chance of bordering towards undrinkable.

Belgium undoubtedly make some of the best beer I've had, but they also make some of the worst beer I've had. Belgium beer is nothing if not varied.

Whitin a country that has 2500 kind of beers, there is no way you can sell crap beer.

Germany has over 5000 beers. Are you telling me there are no crap German beers?

You can't argue that American Budweiser is a good beer with a straight face

Nobody is.

Only 0.01% of the people will like this beer.

I wager that if you did a large scale taste test more people would prefer Budweiser over a Trappist. Budweiser may not be good, but it's so neutral and unoffensive that very few people will actually dislike the taste.

In country X, they do beer good enough to sell them and maximize profit, but in belgium, you can't sell good enough.

I have one word for you: InBev.
Now what was your argument again?
The belgian beer market is the most competitive in the world, by a large margin.

Based on what metric?

The belgian beer are better than other beers (as obvious).

Just saying "obvious" after a statement does not make the statement true.

If you want good whisky, go to scotland. If you want good wine, go to France. But if you want best beer, it's belgium. You can't argue that.

If you'd continued the pattern you'd set up and said: "if you want good beer, it's belgium. You can't argue that." I would have agreed. Or even if you'd said some of the best, or the best in its class I would have agreed as well. Again saying that Belgium beer is invariably great and that Belgium makes the best beers in all categories simply shows your ignorance of the wide varieties of beer on offer around the world. I have had Danish pilsners and English real ales that are far superior to any Belgium beers I've had in the same category.

it is not only my opinion, but the opinion of 99% of the people,

99% of what people? Making up random numbers without saying how you arrived to them really weakens your argument.

including wikipedia

All I could find on wikipedia was that Belgian beer is held in high regard. No one is arguing that. Where does wikipedia claim that Belgian beer is across the board the best in the world? Really if you're going to cite wikipedia to back up your argument, at least make sure wikipedia agrees with you.

PS: you do realize that Budweiser is owned by a Belgium company right?
