[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.

  Catfriend: Proud to be the one posting this first:

Jun-05-15  TheFocus: Alcoholism is the only disease that tries to convince you that you don't have it.
Jun-05-15  TheFocus: I said no to drugs, but they just wouldn't listen.
Jun-05-15  TheFocus: I've joined Alcoholics Anonymous.

I still drink, but I use a false name.

Jun-05-15  TheFocus: I wonder how many of those cocaine-sniffing dogs have to go to rehab.
Jun-05-15  TheFocus: I play all my country-and-western music backwards: your lover returns, your dog comes back and you cease to be an alcoholic.
Jun-05-15  TheFocus: No, no, no. It's "absinthe" makes the heart grow fonder.
Jun-07-15  TheFocus: Someone left a bottle of vodka on my doorstep.

Not to worry though, I was able to get to the bottom of it.

Jun-07-15  TheFocus: My wife isn't crazy about my new household slogan: "Slam Beers Not Doors."
Jun-07-15  TheFocus: I don't drink champagne any more after a really bad experience.

We had it at my wedding.

Jun-07-15  TheFocus: I walked into a pub in Sydney. It was so rough even the arms on the chairs had tattoos on them.
Jun-07-15  TheFocus: I tried to write a drinking song, but I couldn't make it past few bars.
Jun-07-15  TheFocus: The hair of the dog can be a cheap and effective solution to both a hangover and a comb-over.
Jun-07-15  TheFocus: I just weighed myself. Yikes! I think I'm retaining beer.
Jun-07-15  TheFocus: I've never been wined and dined before.

I have been beered and snacked though.

Jun-07-15  TheFocus: Hypnotists reckon they can cure alcoholism merely by implanting an idea in the drinker's head.

It's a sobering thought.

Jun-11-15  TheFocus: If you ever hit rock bottom, bring some beer. I'm almost out.
Jun-13-15  TheFocus: A real problem drinker is a guy who never dies.
Jun-14-15  TheFocus: Where do you see yourself in five beers?
Jun-15-15  john barleycorn: <TheFocus: Where do you see yourself in five beers?>

At the end of the warm up session?

Jul-22-15  TheFocus: I'm a massive seaweed enthusiast.

I seaweed, I smoke it.

Jul-22-15  TheFocus: The beauty of vodka is that it looks like water.

The beauty of the office is that water bottles are allowed.
