What's that, paper sign posted on the internet? You want me to...drink beer? Well, I dunno, I'm at work...

Well, you make a compelling argument.

Thankfully FDG days is still nine months away.

For those who are in the Boulder area and have never seen Ned's July 4th fireworks show, it's simply the best one around. Last year's was three times the length of Folsom's and ten times the quality.

That sign needs to be taken down, especially if it's at a water park. What kind of message is that sending to the children there? I hope they are found liable if some kid drinks himself into the hospital, just like video game manufacturers should be found liable for encouraging awful behavior in children.

Town leaders are calling on residents to conserve water, to ensure adequate supply for firefighting and (no doubt) sewage transport. How many people take this as an excuse to hoarde and exacerbate the problem.

/Sorry, cynical today

...drink water and save beer....THEN drink beer and save water- we'd have more beer to drink to hold us over when we have to drink water. duh-er

I've got a T-shirt that says that!

I bought it in South Padre during my senior trip! We drank LOTS of beer during that trip.

In a remnant of the dot-com era, my office always has beer on hand in case it is needed. Like Fridays.

Very interesting! I wonder how the structure fire this morning in Coal Creek will affect this...I know Nederland sent someone down there.

Also, insert joke about how all those damn hippies in Nederland never take showers anyway.

And if they drink the beer and piss more the waste issue is moot since the brown floats in the yellow.

Natty Light? There are 2 things wrong with that. "Natty". and "Light". Drink a real beer, seriously. I mean, at least you're drinking on job, but couldn't you at least get some Miller Lite or something? That'd be an improvement, at least.

The main difference between Natty Lite and Yuengling/Guinness(I love both) is the price. Some of us don't like spending half our paychecks on beer = )

New Years Eve someone dosed the free apples with acid.

Any band that has a song that requires the band, and hopefully the audience as well, to take a shot of Jagermeister is awesome in my book.

Korangulation: No one cares what beer you drink.

I agree, and I am a horrific beer snob.

(I did originally come here to mention that Denver's easy solution here is to drink Coors Light. It's water AND beer!)

A touch sappy & long, but the message is clear and you are here to waste time anyhoo.

The Mayonnaise Jar and 2 Beers
>
When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in
a day are not enough, remember the story of the mayonnaise jar and the 2
Beers.
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front
of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and
empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then
asked the students if the jar was full.
They agreed that it was.
The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar
He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between
the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They
agreed it was.
The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of
course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar
was full. The students responded with a unanimous "yes."
The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the
entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between
the sand. The students laughed.
"Now," said the professor as the laughter > subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things---your family, your children, your
health, your friends and your favorite passions---and if everything else
was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles
are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car. The sand is everything
else---the small stuff. "If you put the sand into the jar first," he > continued, "There is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you. "Pay
attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Spend time with
your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take
time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another
18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first---the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."
One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the beer
represented.
The professor smiled and said, "I'm glad you asked." The beer just shows
you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of
beers with a friend."
