Beer: More than just a breakfast drink.

Those must have been some pretty big beers if he's jumping off of a pier into freezing water after only eight.

Also... being slightly off shore, with a life ring and being pulled to safety isn't quite the same as being "stranded at sea"

Did he use his urine as a jet propulsion system - like the squid and cuttlefish do - to push himself back to shore?

Did the carbonation make him more buoyant?

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
a tale of a drunken Brit
He drank eight beers, fell off the pier
the stupid piece of s**t - the stupid piece of s**t

The coastguard came to save his ass
before the dumb-fark died
but being drunk, he fell asleep
and went out with the tide - and went out with the tide

At last they brought him to the shore
into an ambu-lance
and Darwin sighed and nearly cried
"I missed my f**kin' chance" - I missed my f**king chance

So join us here next week when
someone else will take a turn
if one things sure about humanity
they never f**king learn - they never f**king learn

"...a night out on the lash."  So, this was kind of S/M thing?  What happened to his domme?  Or do we just need the universal translator to be turned on?

If they spent 45 minutes in the water that close to shore, alcohol is probably responsible for them thinking it was awesome that their arms and legs went numb, also.

There are many words and phrases in the English language for getting drunk.

FTA: "Both were grown men who should have known better."

Said someone who does not understand how beer works.

Well done, FloydA. Is this now a "Ginger or Mary Ann" thread?

Gorf crap,Mr. FloydA.

Hell, this means I'm practically Aquaman.

I like to picture him violently shaking up the beer cans and then popping them directionally, using them as little jet boosters all the way back to shore.

He was favorited a long time ago, and I would've dropped $5 on a month sponsorship for that post alone if dude wasn't already TF

god this headline was misleading. i clicked on the link expecting some guy stranded in the ocean, to be somehow saved by a single beer floating on by.

/leaving disappointed.

Surorised at lack of lootie pics...

I think the paramedics were stretching things regarding the positives of consuming excess beer: alcohol dehydrates you  and promotes hypothermia.
 
2013-11-03 01:47:00 AM
Paramedics were led to believe that the amount of beer the man had drunk "probably kept him alive".

So are they claiming that his BAC made him less prone to hypothermia? That's some fine paramedicing there, Lou.

Alcohol Does Not Help Prevent Hypothermia, It Actually Makes It More Likely
 
2013-11-03 04:41:20 AM
Doctors make that stretch too...http://health.ninemsn.com.au/healthnews/8204557/drunk-man-surv ives-freezing-night-in-his-underwear/anecdotal, still amusing

I always add a beer to a pot of chili, when I cook one. Beer cheese soup is great, as well as beer bread and beer battered fish. Beer, it's not just for drinking!
 
2013-11-03 03:47:20 PM
So the take home message here is, drink beer to live through a situation you only get into if you had too many beers?
