After you make that beer take it to an avalanche

Man peed way out of avalanche
“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.”

He is my hero.

Why was he carrying 60 bottles of beer in his car? Just in case he had to piss his way out of an avalanche?

“…and after cracking one open to think about the problem…”

A man with priorities. I like that.

Good spot, Dirt. That’s a great quote.

Quat, he was going on holiday. How much beer would you suggest? I’m guessing your holidays suck.

He said: “I was scooping the snow from above me and packing it down below the window, and then I peed on it to melt it. It was hard and now my kidneys and liver hurt. But I’m glad the beer I took on holiday turned out to be useful and I managed to get out of there.”

Wait, what was hard? He’s talking about his liver and kidneys, so I’m not so sure the antecedent is snow.

I think he meant it was difficult. The peeing, that is.

No mention of the brand?

Ok, yeah. Now I get it. Peeing was hard and now his liver and kidneys hurt. I thought, well, you know… I thought IT was hard and I was going to say that’s really a feat, to do all that peeing in that kind of, er, state.

It was just a rental.

It would have been ironic if after he got out from the snow, he died of alchohal poisoning.

Wouldn’t pouring the beer on the snow have done the job just as well?


And waste beer? Good God, man!

The pee was probably warmer, thus able to melt more snow per unit volume than the beer by itself.

Plus, Nathan has a point. :wink:

There’s also the fact that a full bladder helps to warm the body. The liquid is insulated by the body, and stays warm, helping to in turn keep you warm. Or some shit like that, I don’t know, it’s been years since the health class where I heard it.

Er, well, your body is metabolizing the alcohol, sugars, and other ingredients in beer, and increased metabolism generates heat (which helps offset the heat lost warming the cold beer to body temp inside the body. Plus, alcohol numbs the skin, especially the cold receptors (although that’s often a dangerous effect - it’s why drunks pass out in the snow and freeze to death. The body still feels warm even as core body temp drops. It’s how bumsicles form, kids!).

oh well

It only says “undetermined”. Give it time. :)
