The Budweiser Story
(not a joke) This is TRUE!

How Budweiser handled those who laughed at those who died on the 11th of September, 2001...Thought you might like to know what happened in a little town north of Bakersfield, California.
After you finish reading this, please forward this story on to others so that our nation and people around the world will know about those who laughed when they found out about the tragic events in New York, Pennsylvania, and the Pentagon.

On September 11th, a Budweiser employee was making a delivery to a convenience store in a California town named McFarland. He knew of the tragedy that had occurred in New York when he entered the business to find the two Arabs, who owned the business, whooping and hollering to show their approval and support of this treacherous attack.

The Budweiser employee went to his truck, called his boss and told him of the very upsetting event! He didn't feel he could be in that store with those horrible people. His boss asked him, "Do you think you could go in there long enough to pull every Budweiser
product and item our beverage company sells there? We'll never deliver to them again." The employee walked in, proceeded to pull every single product his beverage company provided and left with an incredible grin on his face.?He told them never to bother to call
for a delivery again. Budweiser happens to be the beer of choice for that community. Just letting you know how Kern County handled this situation.

And Now The Rest Of The Story:

It seems that the Bud driver and the Pepsi man are neighbors. Bud called Pepsi and told him. Pepsi called his boss who told him to pull all Pepsi products as well!! !! That would include Frito Lay, etc. Furthermore, word spread and all vendors followed suit! At last report, the store was closed indefinitely. Good old American
Passive-Aggressive A$$ Whoopin!

Pass this along, America needs to know that we're all working together!

If you can read this... thank a teacher...

If you are reading it in English...THANK A SOLDIER!!!
God Bless America!!!

Probably an Urban Legend/Myth but then again, the Central Valley of California IS one of the most "red-neck" areas of America.

The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry mid-term.

The answer by one student was so "profound" that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well :

Bonus Question:
Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?
Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave.

Therefore, no souls are leaving.

As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.

Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:

1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.

2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.

So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, "It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you," and take into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct......leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting "Oh my God."

Thats what cabbies really hate.

Well, last night was not boring. Only one quasi-interesting event but we stayed active until 2:00am. Then it died.
First run of the night was dispatched to me less than a minute after I logged in. Picked up a government employee from the middle of Kihei and took a roundtrip to Wailuku. The employee had shared a ride to and from work and had left the house and car keys at work, on the desk Wailuku is the county seat of Mau'i and is where all County, State and Federal offices are located.

Gave me $70.00 on a $69.20. Lets face it, they are more conservative with their own money than they are with ours.

The 9-story County office building:

Felt like one o' dem dere big city slicker cabbies when I got back to town. Picked up a "flag" at Hapa's which took me south to the "Triangle". Where I instantly got another flag going south to Moose McGilacuddy's. Where I snagged another "flag" back to Hapa's. Instantly had three folks hop in wanting to go to their condo, about 1 mile south of "Moose's". When they saw "Moose's" we had to turn around.

The radio went into "lull" mode (no calls). and I took advantage of rest to make a needed stop at Foodland. I got back into my cab and a young Japanese lady asked for a ride to Kahului.

Stayed steady all night with bar runs.

At 2:00am the phone quit ringing. Handled two "regular" runs and closed the shift with a GW-KBR pu-pu.


While making a drop at Hapa's, their bouncers tried to shove a middle-aged, drunk, "ice-head" woman into the cab. I stopped them and said that I would need the money up front and an EXACT address for the destination. After a minute she never could give a straight answer regarding her address and I wished the bouncers "good luck" and beat-feet out of there. Hapa's did call a bit later and every driver, save Crazy Brian, declined the call. After he drove the 4 miles to Hapa's she was, of course, gone.
