The Cost of Throwing a Beer
While out on a date in his local pub Mark
Redmann, 21, of Halifton (UK), threw beer over
his ex-girlfriend, Sally Blunn, when she told him
the relationship was over. The police were called
and promptly arrested Redmann without incident
Although contrite and apologetic at the trial,
Redmann was sentenced to 12-months of
community service and ordered to pay £75
compensation to Miss Blunn and £43 court costs.
When questioned by reporters after the trail Mr.
Redmann said his biggest regret was using
Bluebird real ale, a Gold Medal winer at the GBBF,
instead of a Budweiser to douse Ms. Blunn.
Candy Beer Banned
Candy hearts in plastic cans with "Love Buzz" and
"You Intoxicate Me" printed on them attracted the
attention of the Knox County (VA) Substance
Abuse Prevention Coalition. The group,
concerned that the packaging might promote
alcohol use among children, asked Wal-Mart to
move the candy out of the kid-oriented Valentine's
Day section of the store. The store complied.
|Strange but true...
If you had purchased $1,000 of Nortel
stock one year ago, it would now be
worth $49. If instead you had purchased
$1,000 worth of beer one year ago,
drank all the beer, then turned in the
cans for the aluminum recycling refund,
you would have $214.
The Guinness Widget is a neat feat of
engineering and it does pour a halfway
decent pint from a can, compared to
what you'd get from a keg at a pub, but
if you live in the UK you have another
option as of this month. The Guinness
Surger is a electrical device with a small
metal plate on it; you pour a little water
onto the plate, put a pint of the special
Guinness Draught Surger Beer in place
and then turn the power on, sending
ultrasonic pulses up through the beer to
create the creamy head we all know .
