A coworker of mine was at a very well known brewery in my town with his family. He said that his father asked for a something that was as close to budweiser that they had available. The waiter returned with a pint of water. Hilarious.

I was at the Defiant Brewery in Pearl River, NY and a couple of construction guys came in around 3pm. One of them obviously liked craft beer but the guy he brought in was a little awe struck.

The bartender, and head brewer, asked him what'd he'd have and they guy said "well I normally drink Coors Light. You got anything like that around?"

The bartender told him "I can get you a pint of the water I use before we make beer."

That's not accurate.

Water only exhibits that anomalous behaviour (expanding while cooling, instead of contracting while cooling like everything else) between 0 and 4 degrees celcius.

At all other temperatures, it behaves like everything else. If you cool ice further, it will contract. If you take 1L of water at 100 degrees celcius and cool it to 4 degrees C, its volume will be decreasing all the way down.

As it cools from 4 degrees to 0 degrees (that is, it freezes), it rapidly expands, even beyond its initial volume. Below 0, it returns to contracting, but it will never contract back down to its initial (liquid) volume, even to Absolute Zero (0 degrees Kelvin), which is why it will float.

She was dumb and rude and it hit me why get mad and let her bring me down with her. She walked up from behind me when I had been in line, and insisted she was next? I didn't argue or anything, probably a first for me. Instead, I just laughed right in this woman's face, I promise it felt better then trying to argue back or reason with her. Some people just aren't capable, and we can't control or fix them.
It isn't a source of comedy because it forces many many restrictive and stupid knee jerk reactions from companies and the government to protect themselves from stupid.

people assume that the alcohol content is related to how long something ferments or ages.

"you've been aging that since last march? Wow, thats gonna get you drunk!"

Before I started brewing, someone was explaining to me that the longer it ferments, the more alcohol it has. He was a brewer, accomplished in his eyes.

Oh, and this one from me WAY before I started brewing."I don't like ales, they're too bitter."
Aparantly me first selection of an ale was one of the eepas I've heard about or something else with more flavor then Bud. That was my previous beer of choice, now I use it wash yeast. Its cheap, sanitary, and no 0ff-flavor... or On-flavor for that matter
Regards,
