Hot Property

Drink Up, Let’s Build A Solar Heater

A Chinese peasant has made a solar water heater - using only beer bottles and hoses. The beer bottles lie on a board in rows, all connected by hoses which allow cold water to flow through them and be heated by the sun. Ma Yanjun, a carpenter, said he invented it for his mother and he will build a solar-heated public bathroom for the village - when he has the money to buy enough beers.

FOOTNOTE: Shower power.

But when I drink that many beers I tend to lose the motivation to build anything.

I am SO laughing .. I thought you said he made it out of beer bottles and HORSES .. and I was wondering how the heck he did that ... HOSES .. (in my best Emily LaTella voice) never mind....

Drinking that many beers will cause him to need to use the restroom. After all, you don't buy beer, you rent it.

Okay...so the village needs to band together and buy the man the beer he needs...just make sure it's bottles not cans...cause he can't build the can with cans...right?

Double LOL. I thought the same thing as Daryl. On first read my eyes skimmed along and thought it said horses, not hoses. I got through the next sentence and went, "huh? Horses? Nah... that can't be right..."

Hilarious. Three cheers for beers!
