Do you remember the giant plastic brandy glass we found at DI? If you forgot or don't know or just need a reminder, look at the post before this.
I was dared by a friend to sneak it into a movie theater. What she didn't know at the time is that my roommate works at the movie theater and gets us in for free. When you get into a movie for free you also get popcorn for free. However, in order to get free popcorn (or beverage) you have to bring your own bowls. This is perfect since we now own several popcorn bowls that hold more popcorn than the extra large bowls they sell you. And, in the case of last night, i just happened to have a perfect brandy-glass-sized bowl.
I wish I had a picture, but we got there late. Taking a picture would have been rude. I could have taken one after but the glass was empty and a picture wouldn't have proved much. Next time.

The Challenge: See who would take the longest to drink 4 liters of fluid out of their glass. That's just over a gallon for you who are not familiar with the metric system. The beverage choices were made by the drinkers. I chose to fill mine with a cranberry-apple juice and Fez went with the white-grape-peach juice.
It's harder than you think to make this sort of selection. Just a few of the things you need to consider are:
- How much money do I really want to spend on an activity like this? (my answer was $5.65)
- What possible beverage would I be willing to potentially be sick of for the rest of my life?
- What selection do I think I could choke down a gallon of?
The drinking began at 6:23 PM tonight. My first 20 minutes killed about the top 2-3 inches of my juice level. The next 20 minutes took down another half inch. The following 20 minutes took even less. I haven't made any progress for the last almost hour. I'm waiting on my first liter to not be in my body anymore.
