Twitter - source of so much wisdom!

My sister's dogs are fascinated by single pieces of cheese, Pavlov-style.

I will admit an attraction to cheese platters though.

Where is the assortment of crackers - not complete without it?

Paul and katastrofa are the resident cheese-making experts here; maybe they have more insight.  Cuchulainn knows about the Amsterdam cheese market - the thread is somewhere around here...might mention Beer in the title too.

I indeed find cheeses fascinating. Especially the Swiss cheese invented by Alice Roth.

I'm more fascinated how people (and dogs) don't change over centuries though:


Banksy's mural (I rented my first tiny shabby cab in London in the area where he made it! Bermondsey, Grange house. The mural was clearly inspired by the local gangsters - a hoodie with a big dog on a leash/chain.)

OK - I must admit that I found it somewhat intriguing that vx-underground has a malware source code repository on GitHub. Does Microsoft know?

It shows up on the first page, so I guess they do.
