Cold Beer Catapult!

Posted by on 26 Feb 2007 | Tagged as: Beer People

You just have to love innovation, though this is not something you’ll find hitting the mass market anytime soon.

Tired of having to get up to get a beer in the middle of an important sporting event on TV? Well, a very clever engineer named John W. Cornwell devised a refrigerator that brings it to you … via special air delivery, no less.

Inside, a can is brought up and out of the fridge by an elevator, where it’s then transferred into the business end of a catapult. The catapult swivels around and tosses with amazing accuracy to where ever you’ve aimed it.

Don’t take my word for it, watch the video.

This groovy piece of homemade hardware is controlled by a car’s remote. Pressing the “unlock” button starts the catapult and it spins around until you press unlock again. Press “lock” and the beer is in the air.

If you think about it, the gizmo not only makes it effortless to get a beer, it also limits how many you can have. When you’ve passed the point of drunkenness where you can no longer operate it properly, or lack the eye-hand coordination to catch the flying can, the beer hits you in the face, knocking you out, and thus preventing you from imbibing further.

The only thing I’d do differently is fill it with a different type of beer.

Hello world!

Now this is cool. You are here, now, reading the very first post on this website. Remember this day. Years from now you can say, “Yeah, I went there before there was anything even published there! And now look at it!”

You, my friend, are definitely ahead of the curve.

You’re here because you love beer. This website is here because I love beer. Beer is good. Beer is even holy (I know, because I have some in my fridge that was brewed by monks).

This is yet another website about beer. But as there is no such thing as too much beer in the world, I say, there’s room for yet another website about it.

One thing I can tell you to expect … one of these days I’m going to try an experiment I found on the Internet, where you can brew actual beer in a coffee pot. I don’t know if it really works. I don’t know if, after I drink the stuff, I’ll die or end up with brain damage. But by Gods I am going to try it!

Thanks for showing up, my friend. Please bookmark this place and check back from time to time.

Sincerely yours,
