Beer Beer and more Beer – Jocularity
Historical information about beer. True or false? Maybe it’s both.
Is beer the oldest drink in the world? The oldest evidence of beer is believed to be a 6,000-year-old Sumerian tablet depicting people drinking a beverage through reed straws from a communal bowl. In agent historical literature you can find over 160 words for beer which are more words than inuits and eskimoes have for snow. One theory is that beer is the foundation for civilization, when beer was discovered people wanted more so they stopped being shepherds and started growing barley on the fields and whole communities developed. From this came the plow.
Math and beer.
It has been said that math was discovered because of beer. People wanted to share their territory and they had to find a way to do that in fairness. It has also been said that written language was discovered so people could write down beer recipes and stores that sold beer.
No beer, no pyramids.
The pyramids inEgyptwould not have been built if not for beer. Each and every worker got his wages paid in beer while building the pyramids. That beer was brewed from bread because they did not exactly know where the yeast came from. Because of that the beer was extremely nutritious. The Egyptians taught other nations this work of art, for example, were the Romans given beer to drink in order to strengthen their fight spirit.
Beer saved lives.
In the olden times people drank water from infectious ponds and died. Then in the making of beer people learnt to boil and filter the water before using it. Then it was safe to drink it and no one died.
Funny, exaggerated or true stories of beer.
Many strange stories have been told that involve beer. For example the story about the flood in 1814 inLondonwhen 3500 barrels of beer cracked and caused a huge wave that destroyed two houses and nine people were killed.
The pilgrims on the Mayflower took a detour to Plymouth Rock in stead ofVirginiato purchase beer because they did not trust any other drink. Where they came from the water was infected.
Is beer the reason of mass production? Yes, and also coolers. Many people claim that Ford became first on the market with the assembly line. The fact is that the beer was 10 years before with the mass production and the assembly line. If not for the beer we would probably not even have coolers. Beer producers wanted to come up with some kind of coolers that would replace ice cubes that were expensive in production and hard to produce and deliver. Hence the first cooler for the beer industry.
Beer Pasteurized before milk.
Louis Pasteur is the man that discovered bacteria, pasteurization and cure for various diseases. Many people connect him to pasteurization on milk. The fact is that the beer was pasteurized before milk. Louis was just wondering why beer got bad when he discovered bacteria. He found out that beer was “alive”. He also found out that Lactobacillus was one of the reasons why beer got sour and so on. Beer is therefor the reason for so many discoveries in the medicine world.
Americans should thank the beer.
Beer was one of the reasons nations likeAmericawas discovered. When rebels sat down together and talked they discussed making an independent nation. That same night they walked down to the marine inBostonand threw big cargo of tee in the ocean. This is now one of the most famous moments in American history. All of Americasfounders; Tim Jefferson, George Washington and Samuel Adams were all big brewers and beer lovers. Benjamin Franklin, which was a huge beer enthusiast, said once these famous words: “beer is a proof of that god wants us to be happy”
Beer has been used as a currency in many years, like I mentioned here before, when the pyramids were built. The church used beer as an attraction, as in sales product. The church sold beer in the past and gained a lot of money, and loured people inside by promising them beer after mess.
Beer is one of the best known drink in the world, after tee, coffee and water. The beer theory is complex. You have to be well organized and patient while brewing beer if you want to succeed. You have to consider what type of yeast you use, the right temperature, what style, what barley and hops should you use and water is very important. Probably no other drink is as fantastic as beer, except water of course. Beer was and will always be a big part of our history and culture all over the world.
Beer of fun
There are many jokes related to beer and more than often women are involved.
Remember the story about the research that revealed that beer contains female hormone and is therefor dangerous to men. Those men that drank beer picked up female behaviour and if they continued drinking beer they would eventually turn into a woman. I think I can disprove this theory because I know few beer drinkers and their masculinity increases after drinking beer, to say the least. Well, 100 men drank beer and after only 6 beers the affect was quite visible in each and every one. They gained weight, started blabbering some nonsense, got too emotional, were unable to drive or think rationally and fought for no reason at all. Taking this into an account it is not recommended for men do drink.
…and if you drink too many beers this could happen:
Ask for extra portion of hot chilli sauce on your Mexican spice pie. Try tattooing your self. Use pick up lines like: “you have fantastic boobs”, “can I feel you up?” You can fall down an open gutter. Throw up in the back seat of a taxi. Show people your rear end or mooning like it called. Making snacks by smearing English mustard on an old slice of bread. Fall a sleep on the steps with your pants down. Watching television shows you have never liked and suddenly find them entertaining. Call each and every female in your phone book at two O` clock at night and say: “hi I was thinking of you. I think we should start dating”.
Tell people you just met that they are your best friend…really. Get too emotional and put the most boring cd you have in your collection in the player and cry for no reason. Dig up old photo albums, get even more emotional, call your child hood friends that have moved really far away and tell them that they are the best friends you have ever had.
