Exclamation Beer – dumbing down the masses for centuries….

Beer and wine have been used to control the Masses since Roman Times.

The national anthem of the US, the “Star-Spangled Banner,” was written to the tune of a drinking song.

George Orwell quote from 1984 – ‘Films, football, BEER, and above all, gambling filled up the horizon of their minds. To keep them in control was not difficult…’

Where I live, one of the biggest unemployment blackspots in the north, there are to my knowledge, six different bookies, all heavily frequented. I don't know the exact number of pubs, but it will be well over the 30 mark.

Beer was a source of fresh clean drinking for rehydration during the industrial revolution. It was only around 2% alcohol to keep the bacteria out.

Was like that during the middle ages too and I suspect long before that as well.

This quote is from the The Brewers Company of London... obviously concerned about the beer belly phenonomon..

Quote:
Ale is made of malte and water; and they the which do put any other thynge to ale than is rehersed, except yest, barme, or goddesgood [three words for yeast], doth sophysticat there ale.

Ale for an Englysshe man is a naturall drinke. Ale muste haue these properties, it muste be fresshe and cleare, it muste not be ropy, nor smoky, nor it must haue no wefte nor tayle.

Ale shulde not be dronke vnder .v. dayes olde …. Barly malte maketh better ale than Oten malte or any other corne doth … Beere is made of malte, of hoppes, and water; it is a naturall drynke for a doche [Dutch] man, and nowe of late dayes it is moche vsed in Englande to the detryment of many Englysshe men … for the drynke is a colde drynke.

Yet it doth make a man fatte, and doth inflate the bely, as it doth appere by the doche mennes faces and belyes.



The Aldobrandino of Siena , 1256 was no stranger to a good beery hangover..
Quote:
But from whichever it is made, whether from oats, barley or wheat, it harms the head and the stomach, it causes bad breath and ruins the teeth, it fills the stomach with bad fumes, and as a result anyone who drinks it along with wine becomes drunk quickly; but it does have the property of facilitating urination and makes one's flesh white and smooth.


Also factor in they would have known how to extract tropanes from various plants like Henbane and used it to make a potent psychoactive/hallucinogenic beer......

What fun they must have had...

Varg Vikenes did a YouTube video explaining how its the Christians who promoted drinking alcohol because the Pagans used to use copper bowls to make the water safe for drinking. So they told the Pagans this is wrong you can just drink alcohol instead, and now in Northern Europe we still have a drinking problem to this day because of the Christians.

The Annunaki taught Humans how to brew beer, they (Annunaki) also used to drink it through a golden straw to protect their teeth from damage

The old testament is a derivative of the old Sumerian tablet histories imho

Interesting fact : from the 17th century most hospitals in UK had breweries on the premises for use by staff and patients as the water was so unsafe to drink

Trappist Monks brew some strong beers.

I don't get drunk very often these days. A pint or two of good English ale wets the whistle though.

I don't believe beer dumbs you down. Quite the opposite.

I don't drink much these days but if I do have a beer, I prefer the stuff from northern Europe that's brewed traditional style.

I don't see a problem with relaxing with a beer, its how often is key.

The Eagle and Child (Oxford)

Eagle and Child 1 by Prince Arthur, on Flickr

I went to this famous pub in Oxford last month.

The pub is owned by Oxford University – the pinnacle of British education?!

(The Inklings - an informal literary discussion group associated with the University of Oxford met up regularly here (JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis etc)).

The bar staff had no clue whatsoever that the pub is named after the Star Constellation

‘Aquila and Antinous’

Eagle and Child 2 by Prince Arthur, on Flickr

The same could also be said of most of the drinkers….

The Star Constellation was named by gay Roman Emperor Hadrian to commemorate the loss of the love of his life – Antinous his boyfriend

Aquila (Latin for Eagle and symbolic of Hadrian) and Antinous his boyfriend.

Drink your beer and stop asking questions Englishman…

Brain smarts are not related to knowledge, but capacity to think. Often abstractly. Beer may help with that.

I'd like to know which pubs you frequent.

The beer that people drink in the pubs that I go to, doesn't miraculously appear to give them the capacity to think.

Can you provide evidence of this strange phenomenon?

Does it give them a miraculous incapacity to think, as your OP suggests?

Do you think people in pubs are in pubs to think? First and foremost it's a social beverage.

Excessive amounts of beer will of course make you drunk and possibly incapable.

But, for evidence, just google it. That'd be a smart thing to do. Google "alcohol makes you smart" and you'll see plenty of research from various universities.

For instance: "Recent research shows that men become better at creative problem solving after they consume alcohol. Although some people believe that alcohol can inhibit your normal thinking processes, the study from the University of Illinois showed that the additional drinks allowed for more innovative answers that, in the end, equaled more correct answers on a brain teaser test."

Further evidence is that many, indeed perhaps most of the world's leading writers, philosophers and artists have been known inebriates.

Interesting!

They also seemed to know that silver had antibiotic properties and it was used to serve food in some hospitals and for surgical tools

Interesting section in today's "i" newspaper about pint price disparities from region to region. I know in my local Wetherspoons up North you can get a pint of real ale for as little as £1.85.

In London the price of an average pint is now £5.19 !!!
Oxford : £4.57
Edinburgh: £4.35
Bristol: £4.32
Winchester: £4.30
Salisbury £2.80

You don't get nearer the £2 mark until Chelmsford & Carlisle.

Globally, it gets dearer, with the most expensive pint being in Dubai at £9, Oslo £7, Hong Kong £6, Singapore £5.94, New York £5.32

Countries who offer the least expensive beers are Prague at £1.17 a pint, Johannesburg £1.93, Taipei £1.77, Krakow Polska £1.79 and Rio de Janeiro £2.21

So is there a global agenda behind all this, re which peoples of which countries may get get pi**ed for cheaper ?
