"It was hard and now my kidneys and liver hurt," he said later.

I bet this will become the no 1 on the list .. why is a beer better than a woman...

no 1.. a beer will save your life in an avalanche, but a woman would have killed you...

LOL "This comes as a crushing blow to those of us who were about to use the heroic tale as proof that the safety-concious driver always carries at least 30 litres of beer, and allows him or herself the occasional sip as part of the latest, scientifically-proven cancer-busting programme. Distraught readers can rest assured that we will provide proof that beer increases male potency and eliminates world hunger just as soon we have consoled ourselves with a few pints."

Oh well too bad, it was a nice story while it lasted.
