well look at that. I too, thought they were towels for cleanliness. You know how those chicks are, only like to put their mouths on clean things.

Question...those PVC ball valves...the ladies in the pic would each turn their own ball valve..so the beer flow would start at all different times right? or am I missing something? I am curious because I sooooo want to build one of these.

Probably, but that is also an unorthodox-looking beerbong (that seems like an oxymoron...).

The way most beerbongs are made is with a funnel at the top for adding beer, and the tube is held above the liquid level of the funnel so that atmospheric pressure doesn't allow it to flow. When you're ready to drink, you lower the tube below liquid line and the beer flows quickly due to gravity.

They way this one works, however, is each tube is closed via the ball valve, and each tube is filled with beer. When you open the ball valve on your particular tube, the beer flows (again, due to gravity). Everyone can either go all at once, or one at time, but it looks like each tube is already filled with beer, so really you're not affecting the person next to you.

Both methods are aided by the fact that the top of the beerbong is open to air, which allows the beer to flow without needing to vent displaced air, which would ordinarily create an air bubble in a closed container (think when you're drinking beer from a longneck bottle, or when you pour out a gallon of milk). This allows you to drink a pint of beer in under a second.

So, I just made an engineer's answer to how to drink beer faster...

That is a run on sentence.

Seriously, you did answer my question. Basicly the ladies can start the beer guzzling whenever they choose to. And as an added bonus, the chicks wont burp after guzzling all that beer. Got it.

And to think some folks thought this build thread was comatose! Then all of a sudden one day you take a look-see and ...

BAM!!

... before you know what hit you, you learn all this essential stuff about beerbong construction!

Or, for some of us, that such a thing as beerbongs even EXIST!

Just goes to show, once again, that you learn more here by accident than you do most places on purpose.

Hanes, do you have any photos of your theater room? I've lost track of whether or not you're even building one. Please post a current photo so we can all get our bearings on where things stand.

Holy sh*t. I think that is my precinct! To the left is the FDR park, the roadway that those ladies are so eloquently on display is the FDR Drive, and on the right is the housing projects. Maybe one day I will take a picture from the exact spot of this photo!

Wierd.

Too funny. Obviously you were off that day as I know you would not let something that heinous or Hanesish to happen while you were "Serving and Protecting".

I'm always here, getting close to Hane'sFest 2011 ( more like Chads'Fest 2011 ), getting stocked up on Crown Royal and Plenty of Beer, for a remake of Old School, Doe!

Get your toga's ready....

Oh, oh ... looks like the fireworks won't all be in the sky, Chad! Just make sure you keep those suckers well away from your new fireplace, because you know how upsetting that can be to some folks.

Sorry to have been out of touch lately. I've been undercover working with my two new partners, practicing for my new gig ...



And thanks for that Irish bar video, Fusion... makes me feel no better about my Irish heritage!

Make sure you get these guys out. They'd be good at a party...

I'm praying that my local friend had no issues with our mega rainfall event last Sunday.... Hope all is well Hanes!!!

I'm over in New Hope, and most intersections were under 2 to 3 feet of water, I have a chevy 2500 HD crew cab truck with a 3" lift, and in some area's I almost stalled my truck, could not believe it....

Not to worry. Survived the first tornado of the spring here with nary a scratch, and no basement flooding.



Although I don't think we're in Kansas anymore, Toto.
post #1552 of 1780
That's GOOD NEWS!!!

I can't believe the destruction that's been happenin down south, I'm wondering if the earth quake / sunami in Japan has had any effect on the storms getting way worse than they ever have been ever, geologists said the earth was moved off it's axis enough, where this could be something, not to freak anyone out or admit to abusing any alcholic beverages before noon cst....

But if you look at it, storms have never been as bad as what were seening....

Is Brian still reserving time this August to visit for Hanes'Fest'2011? Road Trip!!! Kind Of Like Hangover 3, Doe !!!

I probably should have made sure, Hanes has not agreed to a Hanes'Fest gathering, so I should not mis'lead anybody, sorry about that,
I started the Chad'Fest' rant for the completion of my basement ( in a month or So ), and being the local single bachelor, I'm always looking for no reason to have a party, I thought what the heck, Hanes'Fest sounds good too....

I really wish I could visit NY, been a dream of mine to see NY, especially the Boston Harbor on the 4th, would be the best seeing the old ships and the fireworks....

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Memorial Day, I salute all of our men and women in our armed forces, as well as my dad for serving the navy, and my uncle that served the air force in WWII, and he is still alive today!

... and a belated Happy Memorial Day to one and all. You too, Brian.



As usual, for Memorial Day I took the family to our nearby national cemetery to visit my dad's grave and show some support for those who died serving our country. When the kids were really young they hated this tradition; now they won't let me give it a miss even if I wanted to. Which I don't.

There is something truly moving about seeing a large cemetery so busy with people that they need multiple traffic cops to direct all the traffic. If you've never gone to one of these Memorial Day observations I really recommend it - especially if you have young kids. It makes quite an impression, and you don't even have to say much (for a change).

A highlight this year was my son's surprise decision to "un-retire" my father's old WW II Marine jacket for the occasion:



Both my son & dad were hospital corpsman (Navy); both were attached to and served with Marine infantry units based out of Camp Pendelton; and both ended their military careers at the same rank of petty officer 3rd class. I had to go and screw things up by not carrying on the family tradition in between.




And no, I do not have any photos of HT build progress to share.

Really, people, when are you ever going to learn?!

Anyone who actually checks in HERE looking for HT progress or updates is either a newbie or extremely slooooow (and not like a turtle). This is that place where we re-post every awesome and hilarious LOL-CAT picture (among others) that we can find.........right?!?!
