Regular beer or light - the light beers are generally between 90 to 100 calories, have less than 200 calories. A beer lover would say the difference is the same comparison between McDonalds and a 5 star restaurant. Those who seek a healthier life and are used with diet and light, say the difference is imperceptible. So unless you are drinking 300 beers a week, choose a good beer and conventional, no light.

The darker the beer contains more alcohol - not always. Guinness, for example, is black, and has 4.2% alcohol. The color of the beer comes from roasted malt, which has no effect on alcohol content. Since the other components are responsible for alcohol but did not influence the color.

The beer gets the bad taste is warm and freeze again - can happen if the beer passes through the process of freezing / thawing for many times. But many people believe that the taste is weird when it freezes a beer that has been frozen and returned to normal temperature. Beer can be ruined by air, light and time. The temperature will not ruin a beer unless it is extreme.

U.S. beers have less alcohol than the others - Some people notice a difference in the label on the alcohol content of beer sold in the U.S.. Americans use an average of alcohol by weight, while other countries follow the pattern of alcohol by volume. Since beer weighs less than water, U.S. beers had smaller numbers, but not less alcohol.

Guinness served in Ireland is better - The process of brewing is inexpensive, so why these brands risk their reputation by brewing a different beer for export? It makes little sense, and not true. With few exceptions, the beer is exported exactly the site. The only difference is the freshness due to the time spent on export.

The beer should not be bitter - bitter the beer comes from a component (present in all beers) the sweet malts and acts as a preservative. Some beers have more (such as India Pale Ales) and others have less, like Wheat Beers.

The best beers are in green bottles - the bottles dark (usually brown) is much more to protect beer from light than the light (green or transparent). The myth arose after World War II, when the imported European beers that were produced and packed in green bottles due to local shortages.

The beers contain formaldehyde in Thailand - It is believed that the lagers contain formaldehyde in the formula. The most accepted explanation is that lagers contain much more alcohol and are much more bitter. When American or British soldiers drank in Thailand, they got drunk more easily and much faster than they used to, and feel a much more bitter flavor. The explanation suggested is that formaldehyde contained in its formula. Madness.

9. The beer Corona is Mexican Piss - During the '80, there was a rumor that employees of the brewery Corona (very popular in the U.S.) were urinating in the tanks of beers to the U.S.. It would certainly be at least unpleasant, if true. But like any myth, it caused inconvenience to the factory - his popularity was declining among American beer drinkers and who benefited from this was the Heineken. Wait, where Heineken and into the story? She was responsible for spreading the rumor (have a case similar to this in Brazil, involving the Coca-Cola and Dolly). The head of Heineken admitted his wrongdoing, and Corona continued it's rise to popularity. But this rumor is spread so far across the country!

Women do not like beer - I wonder who invented it?! Some women drink more than men. There are thousands of cases in which a woman bears drink much more than the man.

Why do teenagers sleep late?

One of the main theories for this phenomenon is that during adolescence melatonin - a hormone that regulates the sleep cycle - going to be released later, around 21 hours, and not in the early evening, as with children. This causes many people have difficulty falling asleep before 23 hours. As this stage of life the average period of sleep is nine hours, sleeping more adolescents outweigh the morning. Another theory on the subject further afield sociological she said, young people wake up later as a result of a profound change in habits in early life.
Why can not we tickle our own body?
Somo able to tickle our own body?!?! People are unable to tickle the body (purposely) because the brain provides their movements before they happen, excluding the sense of danger and panic that causes the tickling. When someone pokes, the body reacts by becoming tense. Even when we touch the body, he shows no reaction. Some people never touch the contract by the other and therefore do not feel ticklish. Results of research conducted by a group of scientists from the University of London indicates that the cerebellum is responsible for monitoring the movements, preventing the reaction.

Women talk a lot ... A survey in the United States showed that men use about 1,500 words per day while women use at least 3,000 (double) [conclusion that the narrator's clever huh: 3000 is double that of 1500]

In Congress, when the study was presented, a woman stood up and said: - It is logical that women talk twice as much as men, we have to repeat everything we say that men understand! And the speaker said: - How so?
