A bottle of Chang in thailand is anywhere between 40-100baht, which is less than $3
And I very much doubt beer in China is more expensive than Japan or the UK, Unless they are only counting parts of Shanghai.

Beijing (the city surveyed) is not a cheap city any more. If you're buying foreign label beer, that price is about right.

Bears aren't available in the wild in Denmark, so I'm sure that drives up the price.

And if you're buying Tsingdao or Yanjing, good German-style beers (thanks colonialism), the price is about 3x too much.

The prices shown are not 'actual' prices, they are a per capita average based on their surveys & WHO data.

How does per capita alcohol consumption affect the average price of a pint?

A beer in a supermarket or hotel lobby (which is what they base it off, though they'll have wildly different prices) is what it is. How much I drink is irrelevant.

If they're trying to get a weighted average based on how much of each people are buying, then they're way overthinking their methodology tbh.

Google now claims that 60% of searches are answered in queries. Google "Man United Score", and it'll return you the score in the current/recent game, hence no clickthrough to another site.

I was joking with my comment, but the map specifically says that they're looking at "the number of Google searches for each brand", not the amount that the brand's site is used. Under the criteria of the map, your example would count towards Manchester United's brand popularity, not Google's, even if it didn't result in actually visiting a Man United site. Whatever way you cut it, there's clearly a lot of people in a lot of countries putting the word "Google" into their Google search queries.

YEah I was there for the Ireland match a few years back and it wasn't outrageous. Ask for a foreign brand and it'll be a E7 pint. Ask for local beer (Tuborg, or carlsberg) and its E4

I think the people who are interested in this thread would enjoy the Map Men series on YouTube by Jay Foreman. It is very interesting (the type of stuff you'd hear about on QI) and delivered with incredibly dry British humour. Some of the ads at the end are hilarious.

Jay's other videos are also worth a watch too about other topics such as politics and London geography.

I see that the most popular dog breed here in Ireland is the Golden Retreiver. Wonderful dog - as a family growing up we had one for 14 years. She had two litters of pups and was such a good, gentle dog.

I also see the most popular breed in Gibraltar is the Rottweiler. Seige mentality of the die-hard subjects of Blighty?

Actually, looking at those maps again I see the Rottweiler is very popular in a depressingly large number of countries. Tells you a lot about the mentality of the people there IMO. As for the countries that favour the extremely dangerous Cane Corso - best avoided in my future travel plans.
