  1. The M14 (my favorite rifle) took a 7.62.
  2. Without saying ‘fuck’ more than, say, 4 times.
  3. If you actually had heard of them you wouldn’t have asked such a dumbass question.
  4. Not surprising. You never heard of Providence either.
  5. I would like to have known her.
  6. I’ll bet all that Coors was totally worth it, though. 😄
  7. I like Yuengling. Several places near me sell it for $3.50 per 6 oz draft. That is a nasty big head though. You probably only got about 12 oz in that pour. Shame on that bartender.
  8. Ah, the old “ask forgiveness, not permission” trick.
  9. The answer is always no if you don’t ask.
  10. Well, keeping it at 33° (where your taste buds will soon be frozen), and shotgunning every beer pretty much eliminates any chance of actually tasting the beer. Doing it that way it really doesn’t matter what you’re drinking. Might as well go for cheapest.
  11. Full disclosure - I used to drink MGD, back in the days when you could get 30-pack for something like $8.99. It was purely economics driven. I outgrew it, tho. That was back before decent craft beers were available.
  12. To each his own. 😬. It’s not my first choice 😄
  13. This pretty much says it all about Coors. This guy liked Miller Genuine Draft (is that even brewed anymore?), but the real dagger comes in the next-to-last paragraph. Supposedly a letter written to Miller. Kind of dated, but still … Miller Brewing CompanyMilwaukee, Wisconsin 53201Dear Sir or Madam,I have been a drinker of Miller beer's for many years (actually, ever since that other company donated a big chunk of change to Handgun Control Inc. back in the mid 80's).Initially, my beer of choice was Lite, but some time in mid 1990 while in Honduras, I switched to MGD smuggled up from Panama. Now, for nearly six years, I have been a faithful drinker of MGD.For these past years, I have come to expect certain things from Genuine Draft. I expect that whenever I see that gold can of MGD, I am about ready to enjoy a great, smooth brew.But wait! Sometime around the first of the year, my beloved MGD changed colors, so to speak. That familiar gold can was no longer gold! Knowing that I am, by nature, somewhat resistant to change, Iforced myself to reserve judgment on the new can design.Gradually, I grew to appreciate the new label (until about May of this year). That was when I discovered (empirically) that I really didn't like the new design. Further investigation of the cause of my distress resulted in the following observations:1. Your cans are made of aluminum.2. Aluminum is a great conductor of energy.3. Your beer is commonly consumed outside, and thus, the container may be exposed to sunlight.4. Sunlight striking the can causes radiant warming of the surface of the can.5. The resultant heat (energy) is transferred through the aluminum, by conduction, to the contents of the can (the beer).6. Warm beer sucks.This is a process that can be observed in just about any beer. However, this process is significantly accelerated in MGD because you painted the damn can black!!!Who was the rocket scientist that designed the new graphics for the can and implemented the change right before summer? Granted, this process may not be real evident up there in Wisconsin, but down here in Texas where the summers are both sunny and hot, this effect is quite a problem. There's no telling what the folks in Oklahoma and Arizona are having to put up with.Knowing that you would probably not address this issue unless you had firm evidence of a problem, I and several other subjects conducted extensive experimentation. The results of these experiments are listed below.The experiments were conducted over two days on the deck next to my pool. The study included seven different types of beer (leftovers from a party the previous weekend) that were initially chilled to 38 (and then left exposed to sunlight for different lengths of time. These beers were sampled by the test subjects at different intervals. The subjects, all normally MGD drinkers, were asked at each sampling interval their impressions of the different beers. The length of time between the initial exposure to sunlight and the point where the subject determined the sample undrinkable (The *Suckpoint*) was determined. The average ambient temperature for the trials was 95 degrees F.Beer Type Average *Suckpoint* (min)--------- -------------------------Miller Lite (white can) 6.2Bud (white can) 5.5Bud Lite (silver can) 5.2Ice House (blue and silver can) 4.4Coors Lite (silver can) 4.1Miller Genuine Draft (black can) 2.8Coors (gold can) 0.1It was evident that the color of the can directly correlates to the average suckpoint, except for Coors which was pretty much determined to suck at any point.It is to be hoped that you will consider re-designing your MGD cans. All beer drinkers that are not smart enough to keep their beer in the shade will thank you.
  14. You wouldn’t expect the bird to know anything this obscure.
  15. I always hated it when that happened to me.
  16. This is about on a par with the guy who committed suicide by shooting himself 3 times. 🤔
  17. This is an interesting pairing. Because Red Stripe tastes pretty much like ass 😬
  18. Is it possible he was having a medical problem?
  19. There are worse role models …
