Beer and Science

Ok, it now becomes clear to me on what happened to Science in this country. It was all swilled away! Now, in my misspent youth, I thought beer was good for Science. I had many wonderful creative discussions in the pub. Did I remember those conversations?

Coffee houses might be better for Science. It can be argued that coffee started the Renaissance, and all sorts of good things. But beer halls, maybe not so much.

My economically wise covivant, LotStreetWiz, thinks that coffee might have started the Industrial Revolution because people were more awake in the afternoon and did more deals and got more done. That would be, I think, the fourth industrial revolution after fire and the wheel and the horse collar, which allowed horses to pull without strangling themselves.

Ok, the Southern Ontario Seismic Network was conceived and started in a Starbucks. Anyone got any great ideas in a beer hall? Perhaps Starbucks should use this to revive their grossly oversold chain: "Get your great idea here!"
