Everyone wishes they had more vacation time (except for Americans, who don’t use a great deal of theirs), but some of them want it so much that they would give up on the things that make vacations so much fun.
According to a not-very-scientific survey, nearly a quarter of workers would go without sex for just one more day of vacation. That’s just crazy talk, the internet is proof of that. Meanwhile 54% said they could go without junk food, showing once again that no Americans participated in the survey. When it comes to booze, a whopping 48% said they would be OK without it, as long as they got 24 more hours of being paid not to work.
When facing solid, nearly incontrovertible proof of driving while intoxicated, your options are limited. Basically, you can either hang it up and consider yourself a pedestrian for the near future. Or, like Kenneth Desormes, you can look at the sh*t sandwich you ordered from life and try to take a great big bite out of it.
We salute Mr. Desormes’ man-of-action decision-making, even though there was no chance in the world it would work. It’s not like printing a file automatically deletes it from the police computer system.
The mid-term election campaign that ended yesterday was one of the most expensive in American history, and no one even cared about it. Just imagine how much worse it will be in two years! But the spending is nothing compared to what we spend on beer.
The National Sleep Foundation took a break from fine-tuning their numerical mattress firmness rating system to warn people about driving while sleepy. According to their data, “more than one-third of drivers say they’ve fallen asleep on the roads, and an estimated 12 and a half percent of fatal crashes involve drowsy driving.”
So, the next time you’re driving home late at night, be sure to drink plenty of Red Bull and Vodkas first.
Each person had a unique story about how Ruggere’s quest to drink away cancer was making a difference for them.
That said, while it’s admirable to see a man wanting to destroy his liver to destroy a disease (eventually), it’s also smart to just donate to Rick Snee’s Movember team. Then you can have a beer wherever you want!
Buildings tend to be pretty useful, especially if you’re a human. They can provide shelter for humans! That’s great stuff! But you know what deserves shelter even more than a few smelly humans?
Booze. Sweet, beautiful, delightful, delicious booze. And Kentucky does have some knowledge when it comes to booze. That’s why a boom for houses has happened in Bardstown … warehouses, that is (SEEHOWCLEVERIAMYOUGUYS?!!?). With the buildings going up, so too does employment for the area.
Truly, as a great philosopher once said: “alcohol: the cause of and solution to all of life’s problems.”
Four years ago we told you about some beer and champagne from the 1840s that was found in a shipwreck at the bottom of the Baltic Sea near Finland. Then we told you when some of the champagne went up for auction a year later. Now, we’ve got another exciting update.
You can buy the beer. OK, well you can buy some beer that was recreated by Belgian scientists after analyzing the beer that had been chilling since 1842. They found what type of yeast was used and figured out it was from Belgium. Then they did their best to recreate the rest of the brew, because 170 years is too long for a beer to age, even a Belgian.
It can be yours for the reasonable price of $143, plus shipping, handling and duties.
