Beer Slave

Powered by Linux through a web interface,
comes the PR2 robot platform know as the
beer slave. The PR2 robot, can be told which
beer to get and from which fridge, using its
cameras to determine which beer is the right
one, open the door, pick it up, deliver it to your
desk - and it can inform you if the fridge is out
of stock and the alternatives it can see.

Watch it in action


Buy Beer, Not Mouthwash

Winnipeg shop owner is facing a hefty fine
after being accused of selling mouthwash to
alcoholics at exorbitant prices, say police.

Officers arrested the man earlier this month,
accusing him of selling mouthwash as an
intoxicant at a local convenience store.

Mouthwash was sold at more than double or
triple its normal price to people looking to get
drunk.  Mouthwash has an alcohol content of
more than 25 per cent. Most macro beers have
around five per cent alcohol.
You don't say.....

President Theodore Roosevelt took more than 500 gallons
of beer with him on an African safari.
There is an Egyptian beer, called bousa, that is brewed from
millet and has been a favorite drink of many for over 3,000
years. Modern Ethiopia has a version made from wheat. It
has been hypothesized that this might have been the origin
for the word “booze.”
In the state of Maine, it is illegal to possess an unlabeled,
unregistered keg – punishment is a maximum fine of $500
and/or time in prison. It is illegal to destroy the label on a
keg, punishable by a maximum fine of $1,000 or
6 months in prison
There are many different ways of transporting beer -
bottles, glass, cans and kegs are best known but  in China,
you can buy beer in a plastic bag!

Modern breathalyzers work on a clever electrochemical
principle. The subject's breath is passed over a platinum
electrode, which causes the alcohol to bind with oxygen,
forming acetic acid. In the process it loses two electrons, a
process that sets up a current in a wire connected to the
electrode. The higher the concentration of alcohol in the
breath, the greater the electrical current, which can be read
by a simple meter to indicate intoxication levels.
