Off topic (just for a sec.)

Maximilian's sig: "There are three types of people: the glass is half full, the glass is half empty, and the glass is at 50% of its capacity."

Whether the glass is half full or half empty, someone is going to have to wash it. And if it gets dropped or broken, then there is THAT mess to clean up!

End of off topic...back to the regularly scheduled discussion!

Well, that was entertaining! I had toyed with using:

"Engineers are people who work very hard at being lazy."

I was going to use images.google.com to find large flaming versions of each letter in "How's this" but it wasn't working out...

Bear in mind, the beer has alcohol. Alcohol dries you out, and makes you more thirsty. That's why half a glass won't be enough. You'll need more beer to take care of the thirst brought on by the alcohol. Then you'll need more beer...

Having to drink another beer doesn't sound so bad. When I'm thirsty I want to drink stuff, not worry about hydration.

Though with only a few percent alcohol and most of the rest being water, does beer really act as a diuretic?

According to the general wisdom on the 'net (don't know if it is scientifically accurate or not) the general consensus seems to be...yes.
