man that guy is inventive ! I would never have though of that ! ...and believe it or not i don't like beer. Only issue is that beer is dehydrating and alcoholic. If you would have 30 liter of water in his car it would be beter, although it would take a longer time.

That is hillarious. That gives all new meaning to using whatever is at you disposal in order to get the job done.

amazing .... <img src="/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

But was it necessary to drink the beer ?
Emptying the bottles directly out of the window would also have melted the snow, no ? Or was it really necessary to "warm" it up first ??

Frenchy

Buddy . . . If the guy wanted to drink first and then get down to work then let him! Do you have a problem with that?

You know I'm kidding of course.

My best regards.

It's debunked by snopes here.

Yes, I'd have thought so. If the beer was cold enough to need warming up, it'd surely be a dangerous to your core body temperature to drink so much of it.

An HVAC power plant job I once had at a Native American gambling casino required unannounced drug testing at random.

Called down for a test, I was unable to go for over an hour and I started drinking 8 ounce cups of water in order to increase the urge. If you do not deliver within 2 hours, it is considered a refusal and grounds for termination, and at $20.00+ per hour, I was not about to be terminated. I put down about (6) 8 ounce cups of water in about 30 minutes before I could finally urinate.

About 15 minutes later, I was in the toilet with horrible pain in my abdominals, sides, kidneys, back, rectum, urinary tract, neck, with accompanying nausea and dizziness. Those of you with medical backgrounds may be able to tell me why water would do that, but I believe it was the sudden ingestion of water that created the problems. After a lot of gyrating on the toilet seat, moaning, swearing, and sweating, it finally went away.

We had an incident in West Milwaukee, Wisconsin quite a while ago where a mentally ill young man actually drank so much water that he died from it. Not drowning, but the water did something to his blood that caused the death. I still cannot get people to believe it happened, but maybe those of you in the medical arena have a link that references that. It was over 30 years ago in West Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

I find it hard to believe based on what I know that the Slovak man could have done what he did and still be alive to tell about it.
