    I'm not sure how reliable Ananova is as a source, but really, if he didn't want to take the time to drink all that beer, he could have just poured the beer onto the snow; alcohol has a lower freezing point than water.


    Still, it's an interesting visual...

    But, Heath. Some guys would rather die than pour out a beer. :lol: :lol:

    I once drove the length of Slovakia, from Bratislava in the west to Kosice in the east (pronounced, aptly, "Koh-SHIT-ska"), to check out where my father's family came from.

    The state petroleum company, Slovnaft, had bars in their service stations rather than convenience stores. Ancient Skoda ambulances hurtled down the road at top speed with sirens blaring--not, apparently, because they were transporting a sick patient, but rather because, well, just in case. Do they actually drive around looking for accidents? It seemed so. I overtook them, easily, in my rented 306.

    Maybe our hero had started started drinking the beer before the avalanche, just in case.

    I drove through Slovakia in August and overtook everthing, ambulances and whatever else happened to be on the road, in my Viper. Beautiful country, gorgeous women, lots of sunflowers. Bratislava I found to be a bit drab, too much communist arhitecture. Many square, grey, uniform and featureless buildings. Also drove through Poland, The Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania.

    not sure what any of this has to do with pissing your way out of avalanches, except you mentioned there are bars at the service stations. I did witness quite a lot of alcohol consumption in eastern Europe. In Poland especially they take their vodka and their drinking in general very seriously.
