This is a question Waste of money

I once paid a small fortune to a solicitor in a legal case. She got lost on the way to court, turned up late with the wrong papers and started an argument with the judge, who told her to "shut up, for the love of God". A stunning investment.

Thanks to golddust for the suggestion

I bought a full size bear suit
One friday I decided it would be a great idea to try and drink my weight in cheap cask wine.
Sadly I failed and only drunk half of the required five litres, but oon the plus side i woke up the next day wondering what the hell I had been up to the night before. A quick check of my computer history tells me I was in ebay. It seems I had bought a full size mascot quality bear suit.

Why? Who the fuck knows?

Moral of the story?

Dont mix large amounts of cheap wine with the internet and credit cards.

Ill try and find pictures of it later on.

Edit :I tried to link to b3tards but it comes up mussave. sorry

He'd be the same number of kilos anywhere as kg is a measure of mass, not weight. Your weight changes according to gravitational field, but your mass does not.

To be really pedantic
a) He should have given his weight in Newtons. BUT

b) It's clearly hyperbole, as "his own weight" (or mass) of wine in a single session would be enough to kill him. Assuming he masses 80kg, that's something more than 80l of wine, which would be about 10l of pure alcohol.

d) What happened to c)?

c) Ah, there it is

A typical apple weighs about 1 Newton. Neat, that.

Did exactly the same with an authentic Princess Leia costume not so long back because I thought 'it would be a laugh at the beer festival'.

Fair play though, I wore it. There's even a picture on CAMRA's website to prove it!
