Louis, I'd just like to point out that in British English "full of 
beans" means "energetic" - As I understand it from the context you eman 
you think that Tariq is wrong (and I agree with you there) - the only 
phrase that I can think of with this meaning used in British English is 
"full of shit", but I suspect that is a bit stronger than what you want 
to say. Once again "divided by a common language"!
