BEER
Germany

[what is this?]
Beer is believed to be over 10,000 years old. Although no one knows its exact origins, some agricultural historians believe that the first beer may have been produced accidentally when a stash of grain was soaked by rain and then warmed by the sun. If this mixture were spontaneously fermented by wild, airborne yeast—which thrives in just these warm, moist conditions—beer would have been produced (Encarta).

Fermented beverages have been preferred over water throughout the ages: they are safer, provide psychotropic effects, and are more nutritious. Some have even said alcohol was the primary agent for the development of Western civilization, since more healthy individuals (even if inebriated much of the time) lived longer and had greater reproductive success. (Upenn Museum)

  tpstar: <OhioChessFan> Thank you kindly. =)

You and I are the only ones who celebrate the Thousands around here. Everybody else just doesn't honor traditions.

This page has the most entertaining material on one thread, also ? but only if you know where to find it. ;>D

Have a Beer after Election Night.

  TheFocus: <tpstar> I also celebrate the thousands, but I forgot on my 12K post.

  WannaBe: Newer members don't know the Tradition of celebrating mile stones on this page.

The older ones tends to spread out the big numbers, I know I do. I don't do 21K, or 22K, but I do 20K and 25K. (What is this, my car's oil change? =))

My next big one is 30K, will be here for sure!!
