Beer saves man from avalanche
From correspondents in Bratislava
January 31, 2005
From: Agence France-Presse
A SLOVAK man trapped in his car under an avalanche freed himself by drinking 60 bottles of beer and urinating on the snow to melt it.

Rescue teams found Richard Kral drunk and staggering along a mountain path four days after his Audi was buried in Slovakia's Tatra mountains.
He told them that after the avalanche, he had opened his car window and tried to dig his way out with his hands.

But he realised the snow was falling faster than he could dig. and would soon fill his car.

He had 60 500ml bottles of beer in his car as he was going on holiday, and after cracking one open to think about the problem he realised he could urinate on the snow to melt it.

"It was hard and now my kidneys and liver hurt," he said later. "But I'm glad the beer I took on holiday turned out to be useful."

Beer actually makes you smarter as well. When you think about it, its all about survival of the species. Wild animals stick together. Part of the reason for this is that the weakest animals are the first to be killed leaving only the stronger animals to survive. By using this analagy with beer we know that drinking beer kills off brain cells and assuming the weakest brain cells are the ones that die off first, this means we are actually getting smarter because we kill off only the weak cells leaving the strong/smart cells. Trust me this argument sounds better after half a dozen beers. Why not try it yourself, then if you really think your aim is good enough, you can try getting yourself out of your car by ...... well you can figure it out.
