There's a 2-mile pipeline running under the city of Bruges, and it's filled with beer
|Bruges is a medieval city and millions of tourists pass through each year, crowding the narrow streets and making transporting the beer from the brewery to the bottling plant very difficult, according to CNN Money.
The solution? A pipeline that flows underground from the brewery to the bottling plant. There, it finishes its second fermentation before being bottled. It's believed this is the first legal beer pipeline, and it's been designed to keep the quality of the beer in mind.
Hmmm... Having lived in and around the City of Flint all my life, my brain is so sodden with poisonous lead deposits that my gray matter likely resembles a 10 lb. tip of a giant #2 pencil. But if this is true? If BEER can be transported in UNDERGROUND LINES and arrive at it's destination UNCONTAMINATED? Maybe.... JUST MAYBE this advanced technology could be used for the dispersal of safe WATER to homes?
NAH... that's just a pipe dream.

The 12th century French philosopher Bernard of Chartes is attributed with the famous quote, “We are like dwarves perched on the shoulders of giants, and thus we are able to see more and farther than the latter.”
But it is this century's great American philosopher Homer Simpson who said, "Mmmm, beeer!"
I have no idea what Bernard was charting about, but I am picking up what that Homer fella is laying down. This beer pipeline in Bruges is 2 miles long, but it is only 100 feet from my garage refrigerator to poolside in the back yard at the Chattering Teeth Bunker. I should have this trenched out by the July 4th holiday, and then... Mmmmm, beer. Hey! Who invited the dwarves?
Happy 4th of July!
