Speaking of Guiness:
What is the correct technique for pouring Guiness into a glass? I know there's a way, where the foam is so thick that you can put a six-pence on top of it. Someone told me it takes an awful long time to do it correctly.

I don't believe there are 6 pence coins in circulation anymore. Ireland is on the Euro of course. I don't know if Ireland had a 6p coin, but if the UK was running things in Ireland when the six-pence rule was adopted they did have a 6p coin, but not now that I am aware of. I only saw 1p, 2p, 10p, 20p, & maybe 50p but I'm not too sure on that one.
Here is a 6p coin from 1956 that my dad gave to me:
It is a fairly lightweight coin a little less in diameter than a US nickel and thinner too.

BTW, L-188, I hope you were pouring your Guiness into a glass and not drinking it out of the can. I was taking that as a given. You have to pour the Guiness to get the tasty head. The only time I resorted to drinking it strait from the bottle was when I was driving my brother and myself over to my parents' church for Christmas Eve festivities last December.
