One night in 1879 at a bar in a town called Menlo Park, NJ, some men were drinking beer,
when suddenly one of them announced that he was going to invent an electric light.
The others laughed, but that man got up, put on his coat and hat, and accidentally walked into the fireplace,
thereby setting his coat on fire. This gave Thomas Edison, who was at another table drinking coffee,
the idea of using carbonized cotton as the filament in his light bulb.
So we see that beer, if used correctly, can be a tremendous force for good.
