At a rainsoaked Leeds Festival years ago I saw a bloke pick up a couple of pints at a beer stall they had set up at the crest of a hill. The fella turned sharply in the sodden earth, took a resolute step forward, somehow managed to plant one foot on a discarded plastic plate, then the second foot on another discarded plate, then effectively and unintentionaly ski all the way down the hill until he landed in a crumpled and soggy heap at the bottom.

"WAAAA - HAAAAAAYYYY !!!" Came the cries from the assembled crowd.

The fella stood up and continued on his way without a word. And he managed, somehow, not to spill a single fucking drop of beer.

Now, that man's a hero in my book.

Reminds me of a time I did similar, falling down a spiral staircase with a full pint in hand, ending up on my arse at the bottom where I leant back and took a sip. That got a cheer too, though god knows how I didn't spill any!

centrifugal force? :)

Depends where he was holding the beer
If it was on the inside of his turning circle, it could have been the centripetal force keeping it in.

/probably wrong as well
