I have more than one friend and/or family member who records their beer consumption on Twitter.
Why yes, I am very proud.
The app shows the beer name, where they were when they swigged it, and how long they breathed — if indeed they did — between frosty brews.
Now, I’m not much of a beer drinker, but I find myself looking forward to this digital diary…and wanting to participate even though I don’t like it!
Luckily I found the perfect way:
The Random Beer Name Generator.
Just click the button, and it generates a way cool beer name. For example, it just gave me “Irish Elvis Dubble”…
So let’s pretend that’s what I drank this round.

Attention lovers of potty humor and word police alike:
BUTT LOAD is an actual unit of measurement.
All these years — I thought I was being rude when I described something ‘big’ as being a butt load!
How I laughed at this crude turn of phrase –
So evil! So edgy!
But it still stopped short of being an actual curse word…so don’t try to accuse me of committing any great sin.
It’s just a good ol’ butt load of fun!
Or. So. I. Thought.
Now I discover a butt load is a traditional unit of volume for wine and other alcoholic beverages. A butt is two hogsheads, which is equivalent to 63 US gallons.
Actually…that sounds way bigger than a butt load to me.

With all the talk of late about pepper spray — meme, ecards, Bella toting it in Twilight (yes, I watched it again on FX) — I found myself wondering:
Is there a difference between pepper spray and mace?
Yes. Yes, there is.
Turns out they are two very different self defense products.
Mace is the brand name for an irritant similar to tear gas and usually has no effect on criminals under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Pepper spray is an inflammatory agent that will immediately take down and cause temporary pain to an assailant. It inflames the capillaries of the eyes and skin causing temporary blindness, nausea, breathing difficulties and an intense burning sensation.
Makes you wonder why pepper spray was the self defense product ‘of choice’ at places like Walmart and Occupy Wall Street. Wouldn’t a simple irritant have been good enough?
(And wouldn’t nothing have been the best choice?)
Plus, this seems less funny now. And way more painful.
