There’s still a prejudice that beer is no suitable drink for women. Many girls are scared it will make them unattractive. But now there’s a Japanese brewer that claims to produce a beer that actually improves the looks of a woman. No, not when men drink it till the beer goggles start functioning, but Precious Brew is said to be good for the skin. Thanks to the special ingredient collagen, a protein that provides the structure and firmness of the skin.
Without a doubt Billy Joel (1949) is one of the most successful singer-songwriters from the previous century. Hits like Piano Man and She’s Always a Woman are still played by radio stations all over the world. But the American artist also gained a reputation of a hopeless drunk, who became too lazy to bring out new tracks, crashed cars while drunk and ignored friends who told him to quit drinking. A reputation that Joel doesn’t really deserve. Yes, the ‘Piano Man’ once checked himself into rehab, but refused to completely stop drinking since he feels he’s in control. And quitters like Elton John shouldn’t bother him with their wining about total abstinence.
Normally we’re not a big fan of authority and especially the police. After all they are usually the ones who piss on the parade whenever there’s a good party. Not to mention handing out fines for public drunkness. But as it turns out, some cops are also not scared of a little drunken fun. A reserve police officer named Danny Eckhart in the state of Louisiana (USA) got the brilliant idea of taking a patrol boat for a drunken joy ride, before crashing it into a riverside bar. It’s good to know that there are still officers of the law that know the meaning of the word fun. Just too bad his own colleagues arrested Eckhart afterwards.
People have a weird habbit to buy stuff they don’t really need when they are drunk. The intoxicated man is one of the main reasons why online shopping is booming business. Usually it’s just a huge waste of money but not always. Former English rugby star Mike Tindall will never regret his drunken purchase at a charity auction. After a boozy dinner he spent 12.000 pounds (close to 16.600 euros) on a race horse. Reason enough for his royal wife Zara Phillips to call him an idiot. But this idiot gained himself 105.00 pounds (over 145.000 euros) as Monbeg Dude came in third at the Grand National.

For the cycling fans yesterday was one of the highlights of the season. As the Norwegian Alexander Kristoff won the Tour of Flanders after an exciting race, we found out that the real winner was a rather unknown Irish rider. Matt Brammeier came through first at a sprint in the village Sint-Eloois-Winkel. This however was quite lucrative for the rider of the small South African team MTN-Qhubeka, as he won his body weight in Belgian beer.
