    I've never been to Newfoundland, but had a friend up in Maine who was from there. So I had my Screech in Maine and don't know if it was the same as tourist in Newfoundland style. But it was pretty heinous. Another friend was from Venezuela and the rums he had, drunk the same way as the Screech, were out of this world. Newfoundland is also notable for neither being in the same time zone with the rest of the Maritimes nor being 1 hour ahead. Instead, it's a 1/2 hour ahead. I don't know how many 1/2 hour time zones there are in the world, but I was told no one should be surprised that Newfoundland has one.

    herenorthere- "tourist style"- basically, if you are obviously from out of town, you will get "screeched in" by the locals in some places- they are proud of theri local fire-water and love to watch folks enjoy it in large gulps- every once in a while there's a bit on some TV show about it, and it seems like a recipe for headaches at the least. And the half-hour time zone?? TRUE, they do indeed have it set up like that, and whenever TV listings used to come on the CBC, it used to say "and a half an hour leter in Newfoundland" which always puzzled me... once I grew up and understood things better, what you say is true as well, it really is no surprise they have something so odd...

    As a side note, Newfoundland was also the last province to join Canada, which I think might have something to do with the time being out of whack there (as is so much other stuff- not being unkind, but folks are REALLY "unique" out there)
