    Well..., I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background and one of the things I enjoy most is converting beer, wine and vodka into urine.

    Hmm I rarely have a beer, but I drink 2/3 of a pot of coffee every workday ( mug plus thermos), guess that makes me a coffee Filter?

    And as for Harold, you don't buy beer or vodka, you just rent it.
