Offbeat: Tactical Nuclear Penguin: Incredibly strong beer landing stateside

  • This beer could make you drunk, fast. That’s because it has an unheard-of 32 percent alcohol by volume, which is six times as strong as your average crap beer. The Scottish beer is so strong that includes this entertaining warning label: “This is an extremely strong beer; it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance. It is exactly the same manner you would enjoy a fine whisky, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost.” Julius has already had a six-pack. Over the span of a month. source

Friday’s airport bar while waiting for this flight!” They have T.G.I. Friday’s in Britain, right? source

She’ll now be spending the next 12 weekends in jail after pleading guilty to 37 child endagerment counts. The video alone is worth the wild ride. source
