That homebrew can make you go blind. That was probably started by some dude who went blind who didn't want to admit to masturbating.

Homebrew doesn't taste like real beer.

"Guinness is great, but you can only have one or two! That stuff is like a meal in a can!"

Tastes watery, and has half the calories of a lager. Bud is way more filling.

I work at a Starbucks in our school library, and I hear people say stuff like this all the time:

"I just got a quad mocha! I'm going to be up all night!"

A shot of espresso contains less caffeine than a SHOT of regular coffee. Anything else is just in your head.

Sorry, wrong... A shot of espresso does have less caffeine than a CUP of regular coffee, but it definitely has more caffeine per SHOT. A cup of brewed coffee is somewhere between 100 and 200 mg per 8 oz. cup depending on the type (200mg/8oz = 25mg/oz for a strong coffee). A shot of espresso is generally 50-75 mg per oz.

But in the end, that does mean that quad mocha only has about 200-300 mg of caffeine, or about the same as two cups of average coffee.

Best one I ever heard. Someone actually said this to me. Using copper pipe in your brewery will turn your beer green.

We have a winner!!!!!!


Nothing like someone trying to counter a supposed myth with a "fact" that really is an urban myth.
