    if you put inflated balloons down your pants when you go running and you forget to do up your laces and trip over, will the balloons:

    a:cushion the blow?
    b: pop?
    c: make you float away?

    apologies if this thread has been done already, but i need to know urgently?

    You can't be serious... The lengths of the laces and the kind of pants, as well as the weather conditions must be known to answer that.

    The answer can be easily derived from the empirical fact (which I have verified) that a standard Durex strawberry-flavoured prophylactic holds three pints of water without bursting, but cannot tolerate the same amount of Guinness (I'm quite serious about this, and don't tell me that the resulting spilled Guinness was wasted -- it tasted of strawberries anyway).

    I leave the details to you, as an exercise.

    I don't think you actually drink Guiness...it's more like chew.

    I swear that stuff is only made for thick necked guys named Gunter

    Well, it was funny, I simply don't agree. I like Guinness a lot. And I'm not thick-necked and my name is not Gunther. Anyway, that's just a matter of taste.

    It really is funny how beer and taste are so different among people.

    I mean people outside America think Budweiser is a crap beer...but i like it.

    As for imports I really like Moosehead and Kokanee from Canada...Sapporo from Japan and Tsingtsao (sp? ) from China.

    Don't like any of the dark beers and think Red Stripe is dishwater.

    That sentiment goes for PBR too...that has got to be the worst beer produced here

    Heh, going a bit off-topic.

    I'm also 'outside America' and I think that Budweiser is crap. The only difference from your statement is that I don't think Budweiser is beer. More like a juice. I like Guinness, Kilkenny and many Latvian beers. I'm positive you don't know any of them. Czech beers are fine, like Koff (I think it's Czech). Some Finnish beers are fine also, for example Lapin Kulta.

    Yeah, it is as scientific as running with inflated balloons in your pants.

    A funny T-Shirt is always worth earning. I have a friend who has T-Shirt with "I'm not as think as you drunk I am" written on it.

    In Kentucky you are not legally drunk if you can still hold onto the floor.

    I have a real problem with the wording of that though..."legally" drunk.

    Well if it's legal...what's the problem?
