A few large prints on your walls of Architech type drawings of classical buildings and/or 19th Century botanical prints probably bought from Kew Gardens shop.

A fridge which just contains only organic food and drink.

Upper class do not need to work for a living and are often members of titled nobility, middle class 'the ruling elite' descendants of titled nobility often given preferential roles based on their background rather than ability. The Working class are those who have to work for a living. Driving a BMW does not make you middle class, having a mortgage does not make you middle class.. reading the guardian does not make you middle class.

I would disagree with that definition. Where is it from? That would suggest they are hardly any middle class people

I've only found Beer Hawk so far and yes I think as they produce proper pub quality pints they are worth the 2 - 2.50 a pint. Looks like they sometimes have offers on, currently have 3 kegs of Leffe for £80, which is around 2.50 a pint.
By the way the premier store in nunthorpe sells the kegs same price as beerhawk

egg cartons are deffusers ,The various textural ripples and waves of egg carton-shaped materials do not absorb sound waves in their entirety. Instead, they break these sound waves up into multiple frequencies and echo them in various directions, which radically reduces the level of noise production and echo in your room. absorption panels take in sound and retain it...mine are rockwool encased in wood housings with slots to allow sound waves in..... yes egg cartons would be very much working class😂

We have an Anechoic chamber at work used for noise testing of vehicles and generators etc. Its one of the spookiest places I have ever been. When you stand in it, there is "complete" silence, no background noise, no echo when someone speaks, you cant tell the direction someone is speaking to you from and you can hear your own heartbeat and pulse/blood flow. It does induce some kind of motion sickness in some people, I am guessing because the body doesn't know whats happening and thinks it under attack. No egg cartons were used. :cool:

It's reckoned that a much less precise version of this is why people get spooked on the London underground late at night. At that time of night there are many less trains going through the system and very few people in its corridors and tunnels, and its when they get the most reports of people saying there are ghosts/spirits or they've been followed by some unknown entity. We just can't cope with such a lack of background noise to our lives.

Just had a look on the perfect draft, works out quite well at about 2-2.50 a pint if you return the kegs, which is what I'd pay for a 500ml bottle of beer from the shop. IS there anywhere else that you can buy compatible kegs apart from Beer Hawk?
Beer Hawk have UK exclusivity.....I'm a bit worried there might be a brexit price hike as they are all 'kegged' in Belgium and shipped here and I haven't ordered since December
