This was a related video on YouTube: Drunk 4-year-old Steals Christmas Presents. The headline's great, but the story just gets better and better. This kid's destined for great things. Poor mother, though.

It is also [the Persians'] general practice to deliberate upon affairs of weight when they are drunk; and then on the morrow, when they are sober, the decision to which they came the night before is put before them by the master of the house in which it was made; and if it is then approved of, they act on it; if not, they set it aside.

That must have been a magical moment, when all were drunk enough to think it was a good idea, but sober enough to organize and execute it.

Beer -- it's not just a beverage. It's a muse!

Does a stout produce a baritone?

Not bad, but me and my musician friends do this kind of crap practically every time there's more than a couple of us together. I think all music-type-people do. I just never thought to film any of it and put it on YouTube.
