a/(a+b) = c/d
a = c(a+b)/d
a = ca/d + cb/d
a - ca/d = cb/d
ad - ac = cb
a(d-c) = cb
a = cb/(d-c)
A slightly different version from Jerry's. I had 32 credit-hours of math in college - calculus, differential equations, and matrix algebra. All of it's gone, with the space in my head now used for old movie lines. The algebra's stayed around, as it seems to come in handy now and then.
I reckon it's the environmental factors that makes beer drinking easier,
forcing down that 8th glass of water coz 'you're supposed to' is just a chore,
drinking the 8th beer because the last one went down well and you feel like continuing (esp entertaining/being entertained) is pretty much automagic.
same as eating a whole pizza
- sitting down at a table barely half way it's tough going, probably doggy-bag required.
- [lubricated with beer] during a big/live game - particularly if it's a close game... full time, still got the munchies, and you're wondering who stole the other half of your pizza.
This internet thing is amazing! Letting people use it: worst idea ever!
Wow. That explains so much about Budweiser. In particular, its popularity amongst the red-kneck types.
My current favorite is Boatswains Double IPA, available at Trader Joe's (supermarket of sorts). Oddly, it's so good that the 8.4% alcohol content is an obstacle. It actually taste like how I imagined beer to taste when I was a wee lad.*
* unfortunately, when I got to taste beer, it was that swill that was (alas, still is) so popular on this side of the Atlantic. I didn't like beer until getting totally bombed in the Heineken factory, after the tour, during a time when I was having "an Amster-damn good time".
