There was a time when i was in OZ (australia), trying to explain one of those OZies how to pronounce my name tobias correctly. Correctly means the austrian (=german language) way. So we practised a while - the guy tried hard - and finally (we might have had 1 or 2 beers by that time allready...) he said: "Oh come on - that's easy mate - it's just like 'two beers', isn't it?" Well and i admitted there is some similarity in the austrian way to pronounce "tobias" and the english way to say "two beers" - u might have to drop the "r" a bit though :-)
spell like "two-be-as"
So thats how i got my pretty unique new web-nickname. Upcomming next: "Where to get the best beer :-)"
