I didnt know any of that stuff. I wonder if the beer taste nasty. Beer already taste nasty i could only imagine. 75 it is not like it is 75 year old wine! The sky diving one is neat.

Nice. My all-time favorite "no know ums" is that humans and other primates don't make Vitamin C in their bodies--the body has an enzyme which broke long ago which was essential in making ascorbic acid. C. So we all have a major genetic disease (a huge genetic disease, can't accent that enough). I take 1000mg three times a day. I think the law in America is that a captive ape (gorilla, chimps, I don't know about prisoners) has to be given a weight-adjusted equivalent of 3600mg a day.

Well depends what type of beer.Some is sometimes overmade and has to much water.As some tell me.Others are bitter or sweet.It depends what you prefer.But it seems like you do not prefer any type of beer.

Yeah some things sometimes sound so weird they are not acceptable.
But I guess the world is full of wonders.

The only one I knew was the sudoku one. I figured that out on my own when I was doing one. Oh, I'm sure Beyonce will be honored that a horse fly was named after her! lol
