Hi jackinnj,
That's the only thing a 50 is good for. Awful tasting stuff.

I smell a setup. Funny, though.

How fortunate that beer tastes best when chilled, not heated.

Fer sure!

One beer bottle does not have that kind of potential energy unless combined with a male gut and expelled through a safety value located at the opposite end of the body. Then it may be quite lethal with low exposure levels.

Now that is what I call a thoroughly scientific statement.


I have something that might tickle, just about allowable since the experiencer was an engineer. A colleague of mine and his friend went to a rugby match (the local craze), and as usual parking was not to be found. Pulling in where they were not supposed to, my coll. remarked on it plus the fact that the adjacent cars had already been ticketed.

No problem, said the friend - and promptly fetched the ticket from the next car and placed it under his own wiper. When they returned after the match, the other car was again ticketed! That poor guy would have to pay two fines, because the friend reckoned no traffic officer was going to take the trouble later to check if the ticket under your wiper was your own!.

Regards

Good meeting you here also, Panomaniac!

Er - you mean that my friends above should have reversed the cars' number plates instead of just swopping the ticket?

No Johan, your friend did the right thing. That's why I keep old tickets with me in the truck. Your friend was not the first to discover this. I learned it from my cousin when I was rather young. It only works if the ticketer has recently made a pass through the area.
