100 Year Old Jack Daniels Whiskey may be poured down the drain because the person selling it didn’t have a license to do so. This would be a travesty.
3 Liters of Jack?
From the AP here:
Here’s a sobering thought: Hundreds of bottles of Jack Daniel’s whiskey, some of it almost 100 years old, may be unceremoniously poured down a drain because authorities suspect it was being sold by someone without a license.
Officials seized 2,400 bottles late last month during warehouse raids in Nashville and Lynchburg.
Tennessee law requires officials to destroy whiskey that cannot be sold legally in the state, such as bottles designed for sale overseas and those with broken seals.
The estimated value of the liquor is $1 million, possibly driven up by the value of the antique bottles, which range from 3-liter bottles to half-pints.
One seized bottle dates to 1914, with its seal unbroken. Elks said it is worth $10,000 on the collectors market. Investigators are looking into whether the liquor was being sold for the value of the bottles rather than the whiskey.

Good things come to those who wait. The same can be said for this amazing commercial for Guinness, which features some people tumbling dominoes, which then escalates into suitcases, flaming bales of hay, upended cars and finally, a large pint glass made from books, whose flipping pages looks like the glass is being filled with the magic dark ale.

I always thought this might be the case.
A scientific study has shown that beer after a workout helps speed recovery. From the Register here:
Almost exactly a month after we leared that drinking beer makes you clever, a Spanish scientist has proved that the golden grog is also better at rehydrating the human body after exercise.
Manuel J Castillo Garzón, Professor of Human Physiology from Spain’s University of Granada, got a bunch of students to run around in temperatures of 40°C then gave half of them a half-pint of beer while the rest got the same amount of water.
The Spanish prof reckons the bubbles and carbohydrates in beer help quench the thirst and replace lost calories, according to The Telegraph.
And of course, you could just skip the exercising altogether and not have to worry about hydrating at all.

There was quite a bit of drinking going on aboard the Starship Enterprise. Every other episode featured someone smuggling Saurian Brandy or Romulan Ale. The whole breakdown of who was chugging what aboard the Enterprise can be found at Modern Drunkard’s Magazine here.
When a gang of super beings who’ve taken human form hijack the Enterprise, Kirk decides to undo them by appealing to their new-found human sensations. Kirk goes for the seduction (natch), McCoy employs his powers of irritation and Scotty brings into play his own special strength—he tries to drink one of them under the table.
“Lad, you’re gonna need something to wash that down with,” Scotty says, strolling over to where the alien Tomar eats. “Have you ever tried any Saurian brandy?” Tomar shakes his head no and they repair to Scotty’s quarters for an interspecies drink-off. They drink every bottle of brandy Scotty has on hand, which is saying something because Scotty was apparently stocked up for a very long drought. Tomar is hanging in there like an Irish uncle and Scotty decides it’s time to go for the big guns, dragging out his treasured bottle of Ganymede Scotch. Talk about self-sacrifice. Tomar inquires, “What is it?” All Scotty can squeeze out is, “Well, it’s . . . um . . . it’s green.” (Data would repeat the exact same line when he produced the bottle in the aforementioned encounter with Scotty.)
They tuck into the scotch and just before they polish it off Tomar takes a dive. Scotty, his job done, takes a little nap himself seconds later. Humans: 1 Super Aliens: 0.

Beer was invented in the Middle East. Or maybe the ancient arabs conquered someone who knew how to brew it. But now the Middle East has almost completely banned the best thing it ever invented in the name of Islam. There is still beer to be had, but it has no alcohol. I’ve never tried it because really, beer without the alcohol? What’s the point? One of the most popular in Saudi Arabia is Moussy Beer.
And they have beer commercials too, but it mostly involves dudes dancing with each other because, well, chicks ain’t allowed out in public to mingle with men in Saudi Arabia.
Thanks to Stilletos In the Sand for the link to Moussy.

Wow, can this chick push some burps. This is Bel, a wonderful, delicate, and well-mannered lady from down under. That’s Australia, ya know. Anyways, watch as Bel burps and then apologizes for her behavior over and over. Its astonishing and hilarious.

This is an oddly intriguing crossbreed of food here. Someone made their own pizza at home and used McDonald’s chicken nuggets, cheeseburgers and fries as toppings. It looks gross now, but it really begins to look tasty once it is smothered with mozzarella cheese and baked at 425 degrees for twenty minutes.

Hardees has been in the news a lot this past week or so since they have introduced their Country Breakfast Burrito. It has 920 calories, 60 grams of tasty fat, and consists of a two-egg omelet filled with bacon, sausage, diced ham, cheddar cheese, hash browns and sausage gravy. It is pictured below.
All of the pansy ninnies out there are screaming that this is just too much fat, and some are even calling for government regulations on what fast food makers can serve to the public.
I call it pish posh. The public gets what the public wants and pays for. If it wants a 920 calorie breakfast burrito, it gets one. I would love to give it a try myself, but alas, there are no Hardees stores close to me.
And if you think that this is the worst thing ever to come in a flour tortilla, think again. Those gut-bombs that Chipotle cheerfully call a burrito often top over 1,400 calories, depending on what ingredients you pick.
In fact, my favorite Chipotle burrito has the wrap, rice, beans, steak, lettuce, corn salsa, cheese, fajita veggies and sour cream. What is the nutritional total?

I mistakenly stumbled over to Cracked.Com’s site just after I ate lunch and read their article on the 6 Most Terrifying Foods in the World. You can go here and check it out, but you may never want to eat foreign food again.
Number 3 on this list was a bottle of wine called “Baby Mice Wine.”
Its a rice wine with about a dozen dead baby mice floating in it. And for a reason only Satan and some whacky Asians know, you can drink it.
From Cracked.Com here:
Baby mice wine is a traditional Chinese and Korean “health tonic,” which apparently tastes like raw gasoline. Little mice, eyes still closed, are plucked from the embrace of their loving mothers and stuffed (while still alive) into a bottle of rice wine. They are left to ferment while their parents wring their tiny mouse paws in despair, tears drooping sadly from the tips of their whiskers.
Wait, it gets worse …
Do you wince at the thought of swallowing a tequila worm? Imagine how you’d feel during a session on this bastard. Whoops, I swallowed a dead mouse! Whoops, there goes another one! Whoops, I just puked my entire body out of my nose!
Who are you going to find in America that’s OK with drinking dead fetus juice as a way to improve their own health? OK, other than lawyers.
I Googled it because Cracked is a satire and humor magazine and I just couldn’t believe such a thing exists. It does. Dear. God. No.

This is a big merger in the beer world. Miller and Coors are teaming up to become some sort of super-brewery.
From the AP here:
The makers of Coors and Miller Lite plan to combine their U.S. brewing operations in an effort to compete better against industry leader Anheuser-Busch.
The joint venture announced Tuesday will be known as MillerCoors and will have responsibility for selling brands including Miller Lite, Miller Genuine Draft, Coors, Coors Light and Molson Canadian in the U.S.
Anheuser-Busch Cos. accounts for about half of the U.S. market with brands such as Budweiser, Michelob and Bud Light.
SABMiller PLC will have a 58 percent economic interest in the venture and MolsonCoors Brewing Co. will own 42 percent of the new company. They will have equal voting interests, however.
Precise financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
