Bad Luck

Police in Miami Beach say a homeless man
broke into a car, stole a credit card and then
tried to use it to buy a beer - from the bartender
the card belonged to. The case was cracked
when 53-year-old David Weber handed the card
to a bartender who took his order. The
bartender noticed he had just been handed his
own credit card andcalled Miami Beach police.
Weber was charged with theft.

Atomic Beer

Just declassified documents state that in 1956,
the Atomic Energy Commission exploded two
bombs, one "with an energy release equivalent to
20 kilotons of TNT," the other 30 kilotons, at a
test site in Nevada. Bottles and cans of beer
were carefully placed various distances from
ground zero. The cans and some bottles
survived. As for radiation, they checked, and
found that bottles closest to ground zero were
indeed radioactive, but only mildly so. Exposure,
according to the report, "did not carry over to
the contents." The sodas and beer were "well
within the permissible limits for emergency use."
Immediate taste tests [poor guy who got that
job] indicated that the beverages, both beer and
soft drinks, were still of commercial quality.
The morale of the story- keep a six pack handy
for any, including nuclear, emergencies.
You don't say.....

In 1962, Iron City beer was the brand used to test-market
the concept of tab opening aluminum cans. By 1970, over
90% of all beer cans were self-opening
-----------------------------
Most saloons were owned by the breweries by the
1900s. The bartenders earned $10 to $15 per week,
with Sunday bringing in the most business.
------------------------------------
In a survey conducted in over 80 countries, 2,000 people
were questioned on which countries have the world’s worst
beer. The results listed the USA as #1, followed behind by
China, the United Kingdom, Australia, France, and Italy.
--------------------------------
In Cambodia, a popular beer is a Tarantula Brandy,
containing rice liquor and “flavored” with dead tarantulas.
---------------------------
In the United States Pharmacopeia, alcohol is actually listed
as a medicine.. No wonder since all of the 13 minerals
necessary for human life can be found in alcoholic beverages
----------------------
Hangover cures around the world - Ancient Greeks ate
cabbages, many Chinese drink spinach tea, some Germans
eat a breakfast of red meat and bananas, some in Puerto
Rico rub half a lemon under their drinking arm, and in
Russia many eat pickles or to drink the pickle brine
-----------------------
The first non-alcoholic beer came from ancient Egypt.  A
priestess would create a strong ale, then heat it over a fire.  
The alcohol would burn off and remaining beer, now
non-alcoholic, was sold to the public.
Ya gotta love these guys
