Never join a project that only has a web designer. You have your own ideas. Focus on them carefully and in small chunks and you will be able to develop cool projects."

The US is the most capitalist country in the world.

This capitalism is best driven by knowing what your customers want, enjoy and can afford, so they buy your products willingly.

The active measuring of the impact of a product to know how to best make a profit is called "business metrics".

The only pints I can find here is when I go to an Irish Pub... which is kind of still not a usual tavern here. We have more Kneipen.
The ratio pub against Kneipen (bars) is 1 to 50.
Irish pubs are more an event bar with Irish music and pictures of Irish people who seem to be popular in Ireland. :mrgreen:

As this would seem to be a UK specific issue, I guess that means .....
I don't really know what this means, as everyone is a foreigner anywhere but where they came from.

Pubs sell beer by the pint, because they are allowed to. They can sell in any quantity they have measures for.
You can't buy "pints" of beer in a shop. In the UK the cans are marked in metric ml, but some equate to 1 imperial pint. Very often they are 500ml.
