You should've been reading the posts earlier in this thread featuring photos of actresses. That would have created a far more acceptable mental image to overshare and scar us with.

Not a problem. Did you get up to our debate earlier about Anne Hathaway's boobs? Classic Superthread discussion there.

After, when Jen turned up and bumped some of the earlier pictures.

I'm not so sure if we should do beer-specific questions, though, simply because we could then probably come up with a range of specific questions for all kinds of alcohols (I could do a number of wine snob questions) and overwhelm the test. Things that are general and can be applied to any alcoholic consumption, whether the person is a beer or a wine or a rum or a whatever drinker strike me as preferable.

Incidentally, I've just added this one of my own:

- bought alcohol underage, or been served alcohol at a licenced establishment while underage?
Yes the underage one is good.

They don't have keg stands or beer-bongs down in Australia/New Zealand?

With a keg-stand you get your friends to literally hold you up by the legs and you put one of your hands on the rim of the keg for balance and the other hand is used to put the spout of the keg to your mouth where you then proceed to, while upside down, drink as much beer from the keg as you can before you give up. It's a very common practice at our Universities over here.

Here's a crude picture I found on Google of a girl doing a keg-stand:



A beer-bong is this (another random picture off of Google):



Shotgunning a beer involves piercing a hole in the side of a beer-can and trying to pour the beer down your throat as quickly as possible.

In all likelihood, we do - but I don't drink beer, and have no knowledge of beer-drinking culture. That keg stand sounds and looks insane! I wouldn't be surprised if a couple of my friends back up in Queensland have done something like that. Thanks for the explantion. See, my alcohol of choice is wine. While I wouldn't be able to answer the keg-stand and shotgunning questions in the affirmative, I could certainly answer the following:

- participated in competitive blind wine tasting?
- are able to identify blind the variety, vintage, and region of a wine with some accuracy?
- drunk wine from the barrel pre-bottling?
- actively match wines and cheeses?

Blame my father ...

My personal preference is to stick to questions that are applicable to any alcohol - and, well, nobody's doing shots of wine.

But then if I'm outvoted on the matter, I'm happy to add it.
