(Some Guy)   Since beer bottles are not (usually) pathological or "wild" spheres, but smooth manifolds, they separate 3-space into two non-communicating regions: inside, containing beer, and outside, containing you. This state must not remain   (bathsheba.com) divider line 34

$78 for a bottle opener. You white people be crazy.

Spending over $75 dollars for a beer opener makes you a douche. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Do these people not have teeth?

I don't know that it will open a beer bottle, but this would make a heck of a backscratcher.

I'll drink to that.

Also separates 3-space and creates a chemical process involving combustion that is useful with other recreational drugs.

was about to get that as an xmas gift for my mathematician girlfriend, but then I saw the price tag.

I have spent the better part of the afternoon opening beer bottles the old fashioned way(church key not twisters) and see no reason for an expensive non traditional opener.(Sweetwater 420). 50 year old church key at that.

I don't think it's homeomorphic to a sphere since there is a space such that the norm of the vector from a point on the edge of the bottle's opening to the cap is > epsilon > 0. This means the bottle is actually homeomorphic to a coffee cup, which contains coffee, which you drink in the morning. Therefore, it is ok to drink beer in the morning.

Nah, man. retro's in right now. Everyone's doing 1-space. Skinnyjeans to an infinite extent.

Since the bottle doesn't have a handle wouldn't it be homeomorphic to a disk instead of a torus?

Yer mom is homeomorphic to a disk.

One of the guys at work showed up with this. I told him I didn't think it would work. He was perplexed, then I e-mailed him a picture of a klein bottle.

The Klein bottle is a smooth manifold too (though it can't be embedded in R^3). The issue here is not one of wildness, but of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orientability">orientability</a>.

You're right.

Why is that beer being attacked by a face-hugger? Man, the Alien that comes from beer's DNA is going to be something else.

I read the Wiki on pathological spheres and my head asploded into the 4th dimension.

Thank you, I was thinking if we can get Cliff Stoll to make a Klein beer bottle, this would be perfect. I hadn't thought of onions and what, beet juice?

Ahem... It embeds just fine. You just can't do it without intersection. It's like a linear singularity you can't blow up.

Sheesh.

If you're ever in Philadelphia, go to the South Philadelphia Tap Room. Amazing beer, amazing food, good prices.

A moebius pretzel would go great with that beer.

It doesn't embed. The word you're looking for is "immerses".

I'd like to see somebody try to hold beer in a Klein bottle.

You just have to hold it inside-down.

F*CK THE PRICE TAG GIMME THAT!!

Did any of you whinebags read up on the

Holy sh*t.

And BTW no, I ain't made outta money either.

Well, the site is now farked, so I hope somebody buys something to pay the bandwidth bill.
