When you're taking a leak and the water in the pot is bubbling nicely, you think to yourself "I wonder what I've been drinking that's giving my pi$$ such great head retention!"

Funnily enough, really foamy piss (not just from hitting the water powerfully) and really foamy beer are caused by the same thing - proteins. Though it's actually a bad thing.

Yeah, I know.... it just cracked me up the other day when I thought that... and it was after a long long Friday night at the pub.

In the garage. NBA Finals. 5 taps. 2 friends. 1/4 full water bottle (contents actually tequila) in front of a fan "jiggling". First thought... RED NECK STIR PLATE!

When you wonder why the girl scouts are selling lemonade out of a mashtun, and you don't even use a coolertun!

When you're stoked about opening a carbonated beer that's not flat, or blowing up in your face : D.

You read a veterinary pathology report that says the specific gravity of the urine was 1.025 and you think "That's a little high. Warm it up, give it a gentle swirl, and check again in a couple days."

LOVE IT!!!

Also... when you know from empirical evidence the average temperature in each of your closets & pantries (in different seasons) so you can choose which one best suits the requirements of your belgians and your brite tanks.

You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.
