Oh Yeah, That’s Gonna Stop ‘Em!

via Ace we get this goofy waste of time:
ABC News: Mo. Lawmaker Seeks to Ban Cold Beer Sales

A state senator wants to force Missouri stores to sell warm beer. Under a bill by Sen. Bill Alter, grocery and convenience stores would risk losing their liquor licenses if they sold beer colder than 60 degrees. The intent is to cut down on drunken driving by making it less tempting to pop open a beer after leaving the store.

This is one of those laws that just wastes time and energy proposing, debating and passing, but won’t make a difference in relation to its goal. It’s no suprise it’s credited to some fifth grade kid’s class project.

Does this guy really think someone who’s willing to get behind the wheel and immediately start banging back the brews the minute he clears the checkout counter is a) all that bothered whether it’s sufficiently chilled, or b) has never encountered the concept of a cooler packed with ice? You shove the six pack in the sucker and wait five or six minutes and boom: cold enough to go.

Hell, room temp Guiness kicks the crap out of anything, no matter how cold the other beer may be. My grand uncle Jereen back in Eire used to keep his stash of amber right under the kitchen table so he didn’t have to get up to fetch a refill.
