Default Didn't realize how spoiled that I have gotten

I was at a volunteer luncheon last Sunday and there were hamburgers and free keg beer-probably Miller Light. I had one and thought, "I used to drink this?". I sure drink better stuff of my own now. Those light Pilsners are kind of thin.

In life, there are three states of being; Good, Bad, and Free. Free things automagically get a karmic upgrade to the Good category.

This applies to Pizza, Beer, and a whole host of other commodities.

Bottling the Belgian: A Photo Odyssey

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I totally disagree. Just because it is free doesn't mean you have to drink it.

unfortunately it is what pleases the masses and also happens to be the cheapest option for the budget minded coordinator.

Good, then the next tiem you have some bad/free beer send it over to me and it'll be doubly-free.

Seriously. I was jokin'. If it's pig-sweat, I would politely refuse. But, for the most part, if I'm at the sort of event where BMC is on tap, it's not the end of the world to have one or twelve.

As much as I hate BMC, if it's free I'll drink it.

Really? I must be a genetic mutant or something, because no beer is so much better than ****ty beer.
