Tastes great, less filling, tastes great, less filling... @ 05:18 pm

As I was driving home from work I saw a guy on a bicycle. Normally this would be no big deal, but it had been raining a little bit today, and this guy had something big on his shoulder. At first it looked like he was holding an old school 80s boombox on his shoulder. As I got closer I realized he was carrying a 24 pack of beer on his shoulder! One hand holding the beer, one hand holding the handle bars. This was on a semi-busy, semi-wet street.

It's hard riding a bike with one hand, especially when you're off balance because you're trying to carry something. I did the math:

1 can of beer = 12 oz
24 cans of beer = 228 oz
228 oz = 2.25 gallons
2.25 gallons = 18 lbs

This was taking his life in his hands biking down a busy street just so he could get his drink on. That's dedication!
