|Feb-15-14|| ||norami: <HeMateMe> No wait , I remember! It's my brain for chess!|
|Feb-15-14|| ||norami: Standard disclaimer - "Ask your doctor if your brain is healthy enough for chess. Seek immediate medical attention for a chess game lasting more than four hours."|
|Feb-15-14|| ||HeMateMe: I was in a movie theater and an ad for Viagra came on before the film. As is a sign of the times, they had to run the looooong print disclaimer after the commercial, to keep for being sued later. Somewhere, buried in the disclaimer on screen is the line about "if you have an erection lasting four hours, seek IMMEDIATE medical assistance..."|
Some guy shouted out "FOUR HOURS!!??" and got a laugh from the entire theater.
|Feb-25-14|| ||whiteshark: "Brewing Beer is the perfect metaphor for describing spirituality."|
|Mar-13-14|| ||perfidious: Here's to spirituality!|

|May-15-14|| ||OhioChessFan: <Man Admits Killing Friend Over Last Can Of Beer>|
|May-16-14|| ||HeMateMe: It was justified Beeracide. I say let him walk.|
|May-16-14|| ||Harvestman: I've got gout. No more Beer for me :-(|

use it as rubbing alcohol.
|May-18-14|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: playing chess while being drunk
|May-18-14|| ||Rookiepawn: The notion of "drug" is slippery. Something that can alter your performance? Well, that applies to alcohol, caffeine, sugar... In fact just eating anything can alter your performance. Your body's physiology changes with anything you add to it.|
What about playing while puffing a joint? Quite an experience.
|Jun-29-14|| ||OhioChessFan: <This Genius Printed His Resume On Beer (And Got The Job)>|
|Jul-10-14|| ||WannaBe: The last line of the article is great.
|Jul-10-14|| ||perfidious: <WannaBe> Given the quiet existence they lead, the monks need a leetle outlet.|
|Jul-11-14|| ||HeMateMe: Some cities sell 3.2 beer in their supermarkets. They should be sued, truth in advertising statutes.|
|Jul-11-14|| ||perfidious: <HMM> In Kansas, used to be one could only get 3.2 beer, being a dry state and all. Even today in states such as Kentucky and Mississippi, there are dry counties.|
|Jul-11-14|| ||WannaBe: Did you know:
<Despite being the location of a major operational distillery, Jack Daniel's home county of Moore is a dry county, so the product is not available for consumption at stores or restaurants within the county.>
|Jul-11-14|| ||john barleycorn: <WannaBe> yes, I know. Also about the moonshiner still produced there.|
Did you know that the owner of McSorley Ale pub in New york was not allowed to enter the pub before the 1970's?
|Jul-11-14|| ||HeMateMe: You can't mean that the entire state of Kansas is dry? Do you just mean that the supermarkets don't sell booze, or are you saying the state has no liquor stores?|
Why wouldn't the owner of McSorley's be allowed to enter his own pub? Was he secretly a Republican? Was he an IRA financer?
|Jul-11-14|| ||john barleycorn: <HeMateMe: ...
Why wouldn't the owner of McSorley's be allowed to enter his own pub? Was he secretly a Republican? Was he an IRA financer?>
The owner was a lady and in the 1960's ladies were not allowed there.
|Jul-11-14|| ||HeMateMe: Oh, that makes sense. I thought there was a guy named McSorley. Maybe she could sneak in the back way? It's a college bar now, not really a neighborhood or Irish stronghold, anymore. The New School has a large dormitory four blocks away, and the NYU dorms are within walking distance. The last time I went there, and there was room enough to fart was back in the 80s.|
|Jul-11-14|| ||john barleycorn: < HeMateMe:> I was there in 1994 still have the mug. That was when I heard the story. When womans lib movement set in things changed. The day it was open to women there was a large queue. And the lady passed by them all which caused some noise until she finally said: "That is my pub and I am going to be the first woman to enter"|
