Driver straps in beer, leaves kid loose

Courtesy of the ABC
Police in Alice Springs say they were appalled to find a driver put a seatbelt around a carton of beer - but left a five-year-old child unrestrained.

Officers stopped the unregistered sedan on the Ross Highway south of Alice Springs on the weekend.

They found the child sitting in the back seat without a seatbelt, but the driver had put a belt around a slab of beer.

Wed, 2008-05-14 11:40

Yep, the new Gov laws will be banning any premix drinks over 7% so all those high % ones will be upto 6.9% only and you'll pay more also.......bullsh!t!

binge!

Wed, 2008-05-14 11:47

They have 3 months to flush out the high % stuff and this is their way to reduce binge drinking but imo binge drinkers dont spend that $$ anyway on premix's. Ironically they'll still be able to buy a bottle of full strength stuff (not mixed) and neck that with coke...........go figure!

Stop whining

Wed, 2008-05-14 11:55

about the cost of booze, We brew our own at one of the diy breweries it works out less thean a dollar a stubby using your own bottles i.e $146.00 for about 150 stubbies or if you want to can it you get over 100 500ml cans for about 35 dollars extra it taste better than the normal shite no chemicals etc means no hangover...however much you drink
No comparison in my mind

sounds ok , so you dont have the home one you go to one of those places like u-brew-it or something? and those prices you quoted are for the premium type beers like crownies etc?

Thats right mako

Wed, 2008-05-14 12:24

we go to u brew it in rockingham the one we do is a premium but they have a lot of different ones cheaper.
they also have a bottle bank where you can buy bottle bank bottles from them, a dozen or so, fill them with your beer and then swap for what they have in the bank it's a good way of sampling without going to the expense of paying for a whole brew and then finding out it's not to your taste

Might be waiting a few years before you get anything out of it. Maybe a moonshine version is a lot quicker though. Might be quicker to put you in the hospital quicker though.

Wed, 2008-05-14 14:47

a mate of mine used to make his own spirits... the liquid comes out clearer than water and you just add your own flavour...his used to come out at about 96-97% and then he just water it down 50 50 add the flavour and presto. bloody nice drop to. he explained to me how he does it all and what goes in but i cant rememeber all of it. i know there was a shit load of sugar in it though.
