This is called a self serving bias. The mind is extremely powerful. The brain renders your interpretation of the physical world.

In support of my hypothesis 3floyds labels will float in cold water. Smuttynose took scrubbing after 36 hours in oxy.

Luckily for me I have 10x 3floyds bottles for every other bottle I have, especially bombers.
smuttynose use super glue or something... i don't even attempt to reuse their bottles anymore.

Southern Tier must do the same with their bombers - that last couple I've removed labels from, I've had a helluva time with...
