Drinker, Drunkard, Wrestler, Beer

Not that I needed any reason to like wrasslin' but here's another. If you were one of the few who have done something like drinking more than four litres of beer at Oktoberfest (like I have*), have felt very proud of such an achievement and want to stay comfortable in your mediocre achievement, do not read further.

There was a time when we were on a roadtrip in Spain and we were screaming our lungs out, having touched the magical 200 mark on our Ford Mondeo. Backslaps, yells and manic laughter were our companion. Just at that moment, however, a BMW just glided past. We could only look on in admiration.

I feel the same now having read about this Giant amongst men. (Hat-tip: Mr. D by mail)
...You won’t find it in the Guinness Book of World Records, but Andre the Giant holds the world record for the largest number of beers consumed in a single sitting. These were standard 12-ounce bottles of beer, nothing fancy, but during a six-hour period Andre drank 119 of them. It was one of the few times Andre got drunk enough to pass out, which he did in a hallway at his hotel. His companions, quite drunk themselves, couldn’t move the big man. Fearing trouble with cops, they stole a piano cover from the lounge and draped it over Andre’s inert form. He slept peacefully until morning, unmolested by anyone. Perhaps the hotel people thought he was a piece of furniture.

Think about it: 119 beers in six hours. That’s a beer every three minutes, non stop. That’s beyond epic. It’s beyond the ken of mortal men. It’s god-like.
Do read.

The undeniable beauty of parquet flooring is financially out of reach for many people. A cost comparison between

replacing the old worn out wall to wall carpeting and installing parquet flooring will show that the parquet choice is

less expensive if you install it yourself.

If you don't have sub flooring which can be sanded and varnished, you might consider do it yourself parquet flooring.

Eight or twelve inch squares of finished oak are available in several shades of stain from dark walnut like oak to pale

natural tones. The wood grain is preserved in all finishes and the final clear coat will stand up to most traffic.
