    Let's be scientific. Further study is warranted. I would like to volunteer

    Sure. As long as we're drinking Canadian beer... not that American crap that already is water. :p

    ^So you'd rather drink that Canadian bilge water? :wtf:

    To do the study right, we'll need English beer (or microbrews).

    I read somewhere that the dehydrating effects of beer, and coffee also, have been exagerated.

    Yeah...

    Everyone knows you drink a bottle of vodka after a thirty-minute cardiovascular routine.

    Geez.

    If you drink coffee regularly, caffeine's action as a diuretic is very limited.

    Now, now--to make this truly scientific, we need a testable hypothesis, and an experimental procedure.

    I hypothesize that the benefits of drinking beer will increase in direct proportion to the amount of beer drunk.

    The procedure will thus consist of drinking beer until we pass out, pausing only to measure the benefits after each few beers.

    I always said I got better at beer pong after I had a few beers. Can we make that a part of the project?

    That's a well-known phenomenon. I'm going to go with drunken muscle memory or something like that as my logical explanation ;)

    Of course, that's also the reason beer is affectionally called "aim-water" where I'm from.

    Will they start selling beer in the gym from now on, then?
