Hey Joz, here's a way to "dig" out from all the UP snow!
Brewer's Bulletin story:
BEER DRINKER IS A WHIZ AT SURVIVAL
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 realized the snow was falling faster than he could dig and would soon fill his car.
He had 60 half-liter bottles of beer in his car as he was going on holiday, and after cracking one open to think about the problem, he realized 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."
Has beer ever saved your life????
