Would you drink a beer made of moon rocks?

    I really wouldn't drink any beer period, can't say it being made of moon dust ups the appeal any.

    And me on the wrong coast. I'd try it, though.

    :D

    No moon beer for you!

    I've tasted Bud Light and Old Milwaukee.

    Drinking an amber-colored fluid containing tiny bits of ground-up rocks from a desolate alien world would be a step up from having somebody hand you your first can of Natural Ice.

    The Moon's total surface area is roughly equal to that of the continents of Australia and Africa combined. In that vast landscape, we've left behind the descent stages of six lunar landers, three lunar rovers, assorted scientific gear, a dozen Soviet and U.S. unmanned probes that soft-landed and the debris of a few more that crashed.

    That hardly constitutes "rather a lot of junk."

    Why would you not want to drink the moon?

    Given the random thread title question, I thought this was a Jayson thread at first :)

    They need to make t shirts you can buy with a bottle that say I HAVE DRUNK THE MOON on them.

    Like 7.34767309 × 10^22 kilograms. That's a lot of beers. You only need to get it.

    Well I did see those infinitesimal specks of moon rock in the museum gift shop, I suppose I could buy a few of them on credit card and drop them into some spirits and just.. wait. When they had dissolved, voila.

    Or maybe I should just stick them on the back of my tongue like pills and swallow them with tap water? Somehow lacks mystery.

    Reminds me of the SNL skit with Will Farrell playing Harry Carey and he askes Jeff Goldblum if he'd "eat the moon if it were made of spare ribs."
