31 Things You Can Do with Beer Besides Drink It
Beer is so good that you should be able to do more with it than just drink it then flush it away. I'm bathing in it now, submerged in the sweet smell of Neuzeller Kloster-Brau Original Badebier, a German brew of 16th-century origin. It's blacker than motor oil (and only slightly less viscous), but it's uncommonly delicious. In fact, after I had uncorked the bottle and sampled it, it seemed criminal to pour it into a tub of hot bathwater. This stuff is for my insides, not my outsides. But when I punch on the Jacuzzi jets, my beer bath foams into an impressive head. Had I known about this possibility before, I would be the cleanest man in North America.
10 Successful American Businesses That Have Failed Overseas
It’s a big world out there and many of America’s biggest brands are eager to get their hands on a piece – or many pieces – of it. But what works on the average American consumer doesn’t always translate well in other countries, and a combination of naïveté, arrogance, and lack of understanding the market have often led to some rather disappointing ventures in the far reaches of the world. Some have suffered defeats in a number of countries, while others couldn’t make it work in very specific markets.

The 9 Funniest Comedians to Die in Their Prime
It takes a true talent to manufacture a laugh out of a buzz kill. Like death: if you go too far, it’s seen as insensitive; don’t go far enough and you’re too sensitive (i.e. the emergence of the “too soon” joke that we all like to make). Many a comic has been booed off a stage before his set is up (in this metaphor, “booing” is dying and “the end of the set” is death…try and keep up). Too many comics have bit the big one before we, and they, were ready for them to die.

10 Best Neighborhoods That Tourists Haven't Found Yet
You've got a little time to kill in the city you're visiting, and you're feeling adventurous. But you'd rather not go to the trendy neighborhood that everyone says is the must-do.
