Sadly I've seen far to many that do lose here, seeing as I spent 21yrs driving with Sydney Buses (waiting for the "On The Buses" jokes now) getting them back to their ships (otherwise the local police or MP's were/are dragging them back).

Cheers.

There are taxi services, and then there are "other" taxi services, its just that that some look to be a little bit harder on the body than others.

I'd suggest they stay away from the MP type taxis though from what I've seen. ;-)

Cheers.

That's why I stay home when I drink anything, MP's taxi's isn't a good choice way to go home. :))

See the aussies are at it again, Hydrating Beer: Researchers Create Brew That Rehydrates Drinkers By Adding Electrolytes.

This bit stood out:

However, don't expect the hydrating beer to contain the same amount of alcohol as your average brew. In order to achieve the feat, researchers also had to reduce the alcohol content.


*very very very sad smiley*

Cheers :)


Wait.. what?
Let me think about this for just a moment.. they are hydrating the beer..
the typical way a beer drinker would rehydrate would be to have a glass of water..
This beer has a lower alcohol content.. so basically they water down the beer..
oh and add electrolytes.. so they can call it science.

Sorry.. but I prefer my beer without Gatorade.

Sounds a lot like Lite Beer to me. If I were to mix beer with anything, it would be tomato juice or V8. But I gave that up when I turned 21.....

An electrolyte is any substance that forms an ionic solution in a polar solvent.

Table salt is a good example, sodium chloride (NaCl) which upon dissolution forms sodium (Na+) and chloride (Cl-) ions.

All beer is full of electrolytes, as is the water used to make it.

That's like advertising milk as containing lactose and calcium.
Life on earth is the global equivalent of not storing things in the fridge.

Yeah, haven't seen him for awhile - hope he's okay.

Anybody wanna see if we can get to 700 posts before the Mods lock this one?

Eagle just told me he's ok, a bit busy... He gave his assent on starting a new thread. So Mods, if you'd be so kind?:))
