I Czech friend of mine was telling me today that they have the highest per capita beer consumption in the world. Looks like the Slovak's are giving them some competition.

could he have not poured that beer itself on the snow to melt it? Doesn't beer melt snow or what? or am I missing some fun?

Pour out the beer?!?!?!?!

That would be alcohol abuse.

temperature of beer: 4-7 degrees
temperature of pee: 36-37 degrees

ergo, pee is more effective when trying to melt something

Regardless, I figured it was obvious the temperatures weren't Fahrenheit in this case. It's very hard to pour a beer that's at 4°F after all.

Nor would be comforatable to discharge 37F pee.

No indeed. Though that's probably better than 4°F pee.

So now I'm wondering - will beer now become standard equipment for avalanche rescue teams? What brand of beer was this, anyway - and will the brewery find a way to use this story as a selling point for their product?
