Who Would Have Thunk

For those who've gotten to know me, know dat I love beer. I love to drink it obviously but I'm not a one brand man. It usually depends on da situation.

If I know I'm going to be drinking a lot then I'll opt for a "low cal" beer like Bud Select 55. If just cruising, probably Miller Lite. If celebrating, any micro-brew but have been tilted to Kona Variety pack at Sam's Club cause they sell it by da case and get da kine different "flavahs". Most micro's (no, not of da ethnicity) aren't sold in cases and they are expensive so I tend to be more selective.

Wen we visited Seattle and Portland a few years ago, dat was da most I evah drank as I'm a social drinker rather than a daily drinker. Between sampler sets (three to five assorted "pupu" beers) and trying different brews every night, I had my fair share of barley in me. Dark, light, hoppy, IPA, potent (alcohol content), dry, aromatic... watevah, it was a nice palatable edumacation experience outside of da normal staple Bud's and Millers... Heine's too.

I don't drink wine and only drink spirits should da occasion call.

Who would have thunk dat beer has more uses than just for consumption? A co-worker of mine gave me a desktop daily peel away calendar featuring, of course.... beer.

As I was peeling away for today's fact, dis was da weekends "fact":




Beer shampoo! I've read elsewhere dat for dry hair, just boil da beer first to rid of da alcohol which is da ingrediment dat dries it out. I'd also recommend dat you don't use dis home brew of shampoo before heading into work. :lol:

Not be out done, there is a medical use for beer as posted by Men's Health.com:

Pass a Kidney Stone

As you've undoubtedly noticed, beer is a diuretic. It helps flush the kidneys and bladder. This can be beneficial if you're suffering from a bladder infection or kidney stone. "You can drink water or cranberry juice, but beer also works," says Larry L. Alexander, M.D., medical director of Central Florida Regional Hospital's emergency department. " It helps dilate the ureters [the tubes connecting the kidneys and bladder], which may help you pass a stone quicker and easier. Plus, the alcohol will take the edge off the pain." But don't drink beer if you're taking antibiotics or narcotic pain medications. You'll render the drugs useless and make yourself sick.

Got mice? They are mammals too so why not - also from Men's Health.com

Catch Mice

Slugs aren't the only pests with a fatal attraction to beer. According to Neil Herbst, owner of the Alley Kat Brewing Company in Edmonton, Alberta, you can also trap mice with it. He recommends setting out a few small pails or bowls of beer (his competitors', never his own), with a small ramp leading up to the lip. The mice will be attracted by the smell, hop in, drink their fill, then be unable to climb out.

Hea's anoddah "fact" of beer:









And if you still getting your olo's squeezed out from under you, memorize dis quote and God Speed... I got it taped up on my wall at work as a constant reminder to suck 'em up. :mrgreen:









So wat? You enjoy being "healthy"? Wat's your choice of brew? Or you one wine or spirit person?

In any case, let's keep people employed. :lol:

    I worked with a guy who did the drink beer to pass a kidney stone treatment. He came to work and it was quite an amusing day. We all kept an eye on him and of course he was not allowed to drive. He passed the stone over the weekend, said he never wanted to have another kidney stone but the treatment was not too bad!

    I read somewhere that beer was consumed as water in the olden days (like medieval times) because it was safer than drinking the water . . . .

    I'm a casual beer drinker who will drink almost anything but prefer pilsners and light or pale ales. Kona Brewing is very good. If you like dat, Sam Adams has a variety case as well at Costco. Very good.
