6 OF THE MOST EXPENSIVE BEERS IN THE WORLD!

It`s easy to get lost in the waste sea of beers these days, everyday there is a new edition from one of the thousands of microbreweries being put on the store shelfs.

Almost every brewery these days issues a special-edition batch that fetches a serious premium. Just how expensive can these brews get? These six wallet busters shows us that beer can be really, really expensive!

1. SAMUEL ADAMS UTOPIA

web-samuel-adams-utopias        Image: samueladams.com

Country of origin: United States

Style: American Strong Ale

ABV: 28%

Price: $150 for 750 ml ($ .20 per ml)

To create Utopias, the brewers at Sam Adams used traditional brewing ingredients including all four types of Noble hops, which add a slightly earthy, herbal taste. The spiciness of the hops really comes alive. In fact, Utopias MMII has even been described by some as almost “fiery” — a fitting description for the strongest beer in history. Beyond the special brand of hops, Utopias features ingredients that truly set it apart from other varieties of beer. Utopias MMII contains caramel and Vienna malts for its rich amber color and several different types of yeast including a variety found in champagne. $150 a bottle and it’s limited to 3000 bottles, which look like copper brew kettles.

2. BREWDOG’S SINK THE BISMARCK!

web-BrewDog’s-Sink-the-Bismarck

           Image: brewdog.com

Country of origin: Scotland

Style: Quadruple IPA

ABV: 41%

Price: $80 for 375 ml ($ .21 per ml)

Sink the Bismarck is a quadruple IPA that contains four times the hops, four times the bitterness and frozen four times to create at a staggering 41% ABV.

This is IPA amplified, the most evocative style of the craft beer resistance with the volume cranked off the scale. Kettle hopped, dry hopped then freeze hopped for a deep fruit, resinous and spicy aroma. A full out attack on your taste-buds ensues as the incredibly smooth liquid delivers  a crescendo of malt, sweet honey, hop oils and a torpedo of hop bitterness which lasts and lasts.

3. SCHORSCHBRÄU’S SCHORSCHBOCK 57 

web-Schorschbräus-Schorschbock-57

Country of origin: Germany

Style: Eisbock

ABV: 57.50%

Price: $275 / 330 ml ($ .83 per ml)

Released in 2011, Schorschbock 57 claims to be the strongest beer in the world. According to Master brewer Georg Tscheuschner, a higher proof beer would violate Germany’s 500-year-old Beer Purity Law. Schorschbräu only made 36 bottles, and each carries a price tag of €200. Tasters say the 115 proof bock is smoky and nutty, with hints of raisins and, obviously, alcohol. The folks at ratebeer.com gave it a paltry 20/100

4. CARLSBERG’S JACOBSEN VINTAGE NO. 1

web-Carlsbergs-Jacobsen-Vintage-No.-1           Image: carlsberg.com

Country of origin: Denmark

Style: Barley wine

ABV: 10.5%

Price: $400 / 375 ml ($1.06 per ml)

Only 600 bottles have been brewed and in a very short time the expensive brew has become a hot topic among international beer connoisseurs and journalists alike.

Vintage No.1 has, as the only contemporary beer, been matured in J.C. Jacobsen’s original crypt-like cellar from 1847, for six months in new Swedish and new French oak barrels. “The project started as a wild idea and a wish to create a new type of beer that had never been seen before. During the ageing process in new barrels, lots of chemical processes take place. Not all reactions are known but they taste wonderful”, says Jens Eiken, Head Brewer at Jacobsen.

Each bottle of Jacobsen Vintage No. 1 is labelled with an original hand stilled lithographic print made by the Danish artist Frans Kannik. The prints depict fables of Sif. Sif was married to the Nordic god Thor, who was often used by Carls Jacobsen as a symbol of strength.

5. BREWDOG’S THE END OF HISTORY

web-BrewDogs-The-End-of-History           Image: Brewdog.com

Country of origin: Scotland

Style: Blond Belgian Ale

ABV: 55%

Price: $765 / 330 ml ($2.31 per ml)

The End of History: The name derives from the famous work of philosopher Francis Fukuyama, this is to beer what democracy is to history. Fukuyama defined history as the evolution of the political system and traced this through the ages until we got the Western Democratic paradigm. For Fukuyama this was the end point of man’s political evolution and consequently the end of history. The beer is the last high abv beer we are going to brew, the end point of our research into how far the can push the boundaries of extreme brewing, the end of beer.

This blond Belgian ale is infused with nettles from the Scottish Highlands and Fresh juniper berries. Only 12 bottles have been made and each comes with its own certificate and is presented in a stuffed stoat or grey squirrel. The striking packaging was created by a very talented taxidermist and all the animals used were road kill. This release is a limited run of 11 bottles, 7 stoats and 4 grey squirrels. Each ones comes with its own certificate of authenticity.

6. NAIL BREWING`S ANTARTIC NAIL ALE

web-Nail-Brewings-Antarctic-Nail-Ale              Image: topdycha.pl

Country of origin: Australia

Style: Pale Ale

ABV: 10%

Price: $1,850 / 500 ml (highest winning bid at auction) ($3.70 per ml)

This limited release beer was created by John Stallwood, the owner of Nail Brewing. Stallwood’s brother-in-law is part of the crew on board a Sea Sheperd ship, and recently visited an iceberg floating in the waters off Antarctica. He collected some of the ice there and flew it back to Tasmania, where it was melted and then passed on to Stallwood to use in the beer. The result was a 30-bottle run of Antarctic Nail Ale. A beer you could feel good about drinking, 100% of the profits from an auction of this refreshing pale ale went to the Sea Shepherds to aid in protecting the world’s marine life.

Top 5 worst serial killers of all time

 

 

5. GARY RIDGWAY.

green-river-killer

One of the United States most prolific serial killers, Gary Ridgway was arrested in 2001 for 4 murders though confessed to killing at least 70 women in Washington state throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s. He avoided the death penalty by provided detailed confessions and led police to the dumping sites of his victims, five of whom he dumped in the Green River leading to the press nicknaming him The Green River Killer. He was convicted of 49 murders and sentenced to life imprisonment without parole.

4. Pedro Rodrigues Filho 

Pedro-Rodrigues-Filho

a Brazilian serial killer. Arrested in 1973, he was later convicted in 2003 of murdering at least 71 people and sentenced to 128 years imprisonment. Committing his first killing the age of 14 began a series of burglaries and carried out a murdering spree against local drug dealers, in revenge for his girlfriend being killed by criminals whilst he was in prison. By the age of 18 years old he had killed 10 people. Whilst imprisoned, he executed his own father who was also serving time for murder. Remarkably he went onto kill at least 47 inmates while imprisoned. Initially sentenced to just 30 years imprisonment, his continued killings have led to further convictions and his sentence has been increased to 400 years imprisonment.

3. Daniel Camargo 

Pedro_Lopez_55239

was a Colombian serial killer who is believed to have raped and killed over 150 young girls in Colombia and Ecuador during the 1970s and 1980s. He calmly confessed to killing 71 girls in Ecuador after escaping from the Colombian prison. He led authorities to the dumping grounds of those victims whose bodies had not yet been recovered. After raping his victims, he had hacked the girls with a machete. He was convicted in 1989 and sentenced to just 16 years in prison, the maximum sentence available in Ecuador. In November 1994, he was murdered in prison by the cousin of one of his victims.

2.. Harold Fredrick Shipman

Dr-Harold-Shipman

A English doctor and is one of the world’s most prolific serial killers in recorded history, proven to have been responsible for up 250 murders. A trusted doctor, he was well respected in his community, however colleagues and local undertakers began raising concerns over the high death rate in the area and the large number of cremation forms for elderly women that he had countersigned. Several bodies were later exhumed and post mortems revealed diamorphine within their system. It was later established Shipman had purposely injected fatal doses of the drug in a huge number of patients, causing their death. He then forged their wills so he could inherit large sums of money and completed cremation requests to destroy the victim’s bodies. The trial judge sentenced him to 15 consecutive life sentences and recommended that he never be released. Shipman later hanged himself in January 2004 in his cell at Wakefield Prison.

1. pedro Alonso Lópes

tumblr_kyz2r4ZhNG1qzwer3

is a Colombian serial killer, accused of raping and killing more than 300 girls across South America was believed to have preyed on young and vulnerable girls in Peru. He lured them to secluded areas or inside unoccupied buildings where he raped each of them before killing them by a range of brutal methods, primarily strangulation. López was arrested when an attempted abduction failed and he was trapped by market traders. He confessed to over 300 murders. The police only believed him when a flash flood uncovered a mass grave containing many of his victims. Eventually 53 bodies were discovered. Imprisoned in 1980 he served just 18 years before being released from a Ecuadorian prison and was deported to Columbia where he was rearrested and in 2002 was sentenced to life.

TOP 5 BEST AMUSEMENT RIDES IN AMERICA!

These amusement rides are ridiculous!

NUMBER 5: El Toro

Address: Six Flags Great Adventure, Jackson, NJ

Website: Six Flags Great Adventure
Duration Of Ride: 1:42
Year Built: 2006
Slogan: “Inspired by the strength and bravery of a bull-taming matador, El Toro features the steepest drop of any wooden roller coaster in the country at a record-breaking 76 degrees.”

This bull-themed ride is definitely one of the greatest wooden roller coasters in the world. There is only one other wooden coaster in the world that boasts a steeper maximum vertical angle than the formidable El Toro. The choice to laser cut the wood instead of the traditionally hand cut method, allowed a grater greater degree of precision, and made this impressive construction possible.

NUMBER 4: Top Thrill Dragster

Address: Cedar Point, Sandusky, OH
Website: cedarpoint.com
Duration Of Ride: 0:17
Year Built: 2003
Slogan: “The ride may be over in 17 seconds, but it’ll stay with you forever.”

The perfect ride for speed demons, this brief coaster takes riders from 0-120 mph in just shorter than four seconds. Top Thrill Dragster is one of two stratacoasters in existence; to qualify as a Stratacoaster, a ride must feature at least a 400 foot drop and complete a full circuit.  Three groups of riders have had an extra dose of excitement in the ride’s history: on a few occasions, the ride has stalled at the height of its 420 foot summit, and one of the technician has had to push the ride back down after customers spent a few extra minutes in the sky.

NUMBER 3: THE SIMPSON RIDE

Address: Universal Studios, Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA
Website: universalstudioshollywood.com
Duration Of Ride: 6:00
Year Built: 2008
Slogan: “The Simpsons are visiting Krustyland and you are there right alongside Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie as you enter through the carnival-like midway.”

Even though The Simpsons doesn’t seem like the most thrilling source material for a amusement ride, Universal Studios has used sophisticated technology to create an immersive Springfield experience. Over 2000 LED lights and an 80 ft. diameter dome are employed to make this simulation function. When the ride launched back in 2008, The Simpsons Ride replaced the Back to the Future Ride as Universal’s marquee simulator ride attraction, and judging by the positive response from riders, it will likely enjoy a long run as the beloved ride’s successor.

NUMBER 2: MILLENIUM FORCE

Address: Cedar Point, Sandusky, OH
Website: cedarpoint.com
Duration Of Ride: 2:00
Year Built: 2000
Slogan: “A true Giant among coasters.”

The winner of countless Golden Ticket awards for the best steel coaster, and the holder of seven different world records, The Millennium Force is one of the best roller coasters ever built. The ride, which features a more than 300 foot drop, maxes out at over 90 mph, and even features a moment of zero gravity, helped pioneer the term “gigacoaster.” Prior to the Millennium Force’s opening, there was no need for the term, as gigacoasters are a class of ride that has a drop of between 300 and 400 feet and completes a full circuit. Taller coasters have been completed since, but no coaster provides thrills like the Millennium Force.

NUMBER 1: KINGDA KA

Address: Six Flags Great Adventure, Jackson, NJ
Website: sixflags.com
Duration Of Ride: 0:28
Year Built: 2005
Slogan: “The fierce Kingda Ka is the tallest coaster in the World, fastest in North America.”

No ride on earth boasts anywhere near the height world-record holder Kingda Ka. On the Kingda Ka, you will be thrust 456 feet in the air while going from 0-128 mph in 3.5 seconds. These features earns her the crown for being one of the absolutely best amusement rides in America. In its short life, the Kingda Ka has endured a strange series of mishaps. To date the ride has survived a bolt failure, damage inflicted by Hurricane Irene, and being struck by lightning. Lets hope her luck will last!

 

 

 

 

Space travel: 10 Technology Innovations Needed for Deep Space Exploration

_65169606_telescopemilkyway

If you’re a “Star Trek” fan, then that opening voiceover by William Shatner probably still gives you goose bumps: “To explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.”

Enthralling as that notion may be, to most people, it probably seems like a sci-fi writer’s wishful thinking. While astronauts have ventured as far away as the Moon and, over the last few decades, have routinely orbited Earth, they’ve yet to venture to other planets in our solar system, let alone into the vast emptiness between our solar system and those of other stars. The immense distances involved — 36 million miles (57.9 million kilometers) to Mars, 21.1 trillion miles (39.9 trillion kilometers) to Proxima Centauri, the nearest star — make deep space travel seem beyond reach of even the most extreme human ingenuity. What would power spacecraft over such long distances? What would keep astronauts safe from the perils of radiation and the muscle-and-bone-wasting effects of microgravity? How would crews avoid running out of food and water? And once they arrived at their destinations, how would they even be able to send messages back to Earth? It all sounds impossible.

Or not. NASA researchers and other brains are hard at work contemplating the challenges of deep space travel and dreaming up technologies to meet those challenges. They’ve already come up with a number of ideas — solar sails to power spacecraft, super-precise, atomic-powered instruments for navigation, and laser relays for long-distance communication — that are in the early stages of development and may be ready for testing in the next few years, according to NASA. Additionally, in 2011, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Pentagon’s research and development arm, promised to invest up to $500,000 in seed money in technologies needed for interstellar travel, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Many potential breakthroughs are still on the drawing board, and while they still have a ways to go, the fact that these inspirations come from credible scientists and engineers gives us hope that someday they’ll become a reality — and humans will roam the cosmos. Here are 10 of the most interesting technological notions.

1. SPACE SAILS nasas-nanosail-d-solar-sail-unfurled-above-earth-17-jan-2011

  1. Conventional rockets can put astronauts into orbit, but try using one to travel the enormous distances between planets and stars and you’re likely to run out of fuel. That’s why scientists have been working to develop alternative methods of propulsion and energy sources for rockets.

    One promising, albeit outlandish, idea is to equip starships with giant sails, which would capture solar energy and use it for propulsion. This would be possible because light is made up of tiny, extremely energetic particles called photons, which in some ways behave like atomic particles. When light strikes a mirrorlike surface, the photons are reflected straight back. In the process, they transmit their momentum to the surface, pushing it forward, explains the Planetary Society.

    One huge advantage of a solar sail would be that, unlike a rocket engine, it would cause a spacecraft to continually, steadily accelerate, so that the craft eventually would reach an extremely high rate of speed. One drawback of solar sails is that in order to provide sufficient force to propel a spacecraft forward, a sail would have to be many times larger than that spacecraft. Such sails might actually have to be built in space.

    2. Communication

    On_Space_Station_V,_Dr._Heywood_Floyd_places_a_videocall_to_his_daughter_on_Earth

    We all chuckled at the notion that E.T. was having trouble phoning home, but for interplanetary explorers, maintaining communication with Earth could be a major challenge. “If you can’t communicate with the ship, then you don’t know what the results are of your mission,” Andreas Tziolas, a former research fellow at NASA who now heads Project Icarus, a private-sector effort to develop interstellar technology, told the Atlantic.

    For that reason, NASA is funding a project called the Laser Communications Relay Demonstration, which would use laser beams to transfer data between spacecraft and stations on Earth at 10 to 100 times the speeds currently available. If the method proves to be feasible, astronauts on Mars could transmit data back to Earth at speeds of 100 Mbps or more, which is at least several times faster than the broadband Internet connections that the most technologically advanced ordinary Joes have in their homes. Conceivably, it would be possible to transmit a photographic image from Mars to Earth in about five minutes, compared to the 90-minute wait that scientists operating robotic rovers on the Red Planet presently must endure, according to PopSci.

    3. Navigational clocks

    504221

    If you’re going to travel in deep space, the last thing you want is to get lost along the way, crash on some strange planet, and have your robotic assistant running around wearing out its voice synthesizer, continually shouting “Danger, Will Robinson!” To avoid such a scenario, you need a really good a navigation system with a super-precise clock; this clock will be used to calculate distances.

    That’s why NASA is planning in 2015 to launch a spacecraft containing the experimental Deep Space Atomic Clock, a miniaturized, ultra-precise mercury-ion atomic clock that’s 100 times more stable than existing navigational clocks. All clocks are imprecise to some degree. But this one is accurate to within a billionth of a second over a 10-day period. This means astronauts can use it to measure frequencies, which are used to calculate distances, with much greater precision.

    4. Robotic Teams

    Mars_Science_Laboratory_Curiosity_rover

    Founding a colony on a distant planet might be a daunting task for astronauts. They’d have to land in unfamiliar, possibly rough terrain, and then immediately set about erecting dwellings and a landing/launching pad to facilitate follow-up missions — all while searching for water, air and building materials. That’s why NASA engineers, in league with Canadian and European colleagues, are at work developing robotic advance teams that would land in advance of human explorers to scope out the available resources and lay the groundwork for a settlement. On Mars or another planet, for example, rovers equipped with bulldozer blades or plows could go to work clearing and smoothing a landing spot, while others might amass rocks and other materials and process them to make a concrete runway. (Remember that the Space Shuttle’s landing facility required 250,000 cubic yards of concrete, far too much to ever be transported from Earth.) Other robots might roam the surface, drilling and testing soil samples to look for usable oxygen and/or water, according to NASA.

    5.  Simulated gravity

    p0140xss

    Watching Apollo astronauts hit golf balls fantastic distances might make microgravity look like great fun, but the truth is that it’s extremely hard on your body. In fact, scientists say that some of the biggest potential problems facing astronauts in deep space are the physiological changes caused by weightlessness. Astronauts’ muscles have a tendency to atrophy from lack of resistance, and they lose bone as well; in addition, weightlessness causes a loss of blood volume, so they feel lightheaded when they stand up. Additionally, it alters the human sense of balance, so that when space travelers return, they’ll feel as if Earth is spinning out of control beneath their feet.

    On short-term trips, astronauts have been combating such debilitating changes by using specially designed exercise equipment and by taking medications to combat bone loss. On a longer trip, however, it might make more sense to equip a ship with some sort of rotational mechanism to simulate gravity inside. Alternatively, scientists have proposed installing circular exercise tracks inside spaceships, upon which astronauts would peddle bikes in circles to simulate gravity’s effect on their muscles and bones.

    6. Keeping the astronauts alive for a long time

    141007123531-01-mars-hibernate-horizontal-large-gallery

    One of the major problems with traveling vast distances in space is that trips could take a long, long time. In a lot of science fiction movies, such as “Alien” and “Planet of the Apes,” scriptwriters get around this problem by depicting astronauts slumbering for long stretches in suspended animation, like hibernating animals. Unfortunately, slowing the human metabolism and keeping a person alive for lengthy periods in that state is easier imagined than done. Surface-induced deep hypothermia — in layman’s terms, freezing — probably isn’t a good option, for example, since ice crystals begin to form inside the cells, and then destroy them as they grow, according to Michio Kaku, author of “Physics of the Impossible.”

    But there may be other methods of maintaining a person in suspended animation without the ice. In 2006, for example, researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston slowed down the metabolism and cardiovascular systems of mice by administering small, controlled doses of hydrogen sulfide, the foul-smelling toxic gas produced by rotting eggs and sewage, and then were able to reverse the state of suspended animation afterward, according to Science Daily. In subsequent experiments, the researchers accomplished this feat even without a reduction in body temperature.

    7. Force fields

    maxresdefault

    Force fields are a staple of science fiction, in which they’re usually used to protect a spaceship or space station from attackers. In “Star Wars,” for example, the Death Star on which Darth Vader did his heavy breathing was protected by such a shield. But in actual deep space travel, scientists are looking to force fields to solve another problem — how to protect astronauts’ bodily cells from the continual radiation bombardment in space that might cause them to develop cancers and other health problems.

    For the most part, dangerous radiation in space comes from electrically charged particles: high-speed electrons and protons put out by the Sun, and huge, positively charged atomic nuclei put out by distant supernovas. Hypothetically, if a spaceship were equipped with a powerful electrical field that had the same charge as the incoming radiation, it might be able to deflect that radiation. Unlike the force fields in movies, however, a practical force field might involve some visible objects. In one scheme developed by NASA scientists in the mid-2000s, spheres made of a thin, strong material and coated with a very thin layer of a conductor such as gold would be floated at low altitude over a base camp on another planet and then charged with electricity, according to NASA. Portable versions of the same device could be used on spaceships and rover vehicles.

    8.  Warp speed

    In “Star Trek,” the Starship Enterprise travels enormous distances in weeks and months, even visiting other galaxies — a feat that would be impossible at the speeds that spacecraft currently travel. The Enterprise does this by using warp drive, in which the spacecraft basically takes shortcuts through holes caused by distortions of space-time. (This is a tricky concept to grasp; imagine space and time as a giant tablecloth, one that you can stretch, twist and poke pathways through.)

    This might seem like a totally goofy, ridiculous idea, but physicists actually have been contemplating it since at least the 1920s. In 1994, theoretical physicist and Trekkie Miguel Alcubierre actually published a scientific paper showing that a warp drive could be created without contradicting Einsteinian physics, which would seem to dictate that faster-than-light travel is impossible. According to Alcubierre, it would be possible to get around this limitation if a spacecraft used energy to create a sort of bubble around it, which would cause space-time to expand behind it and contract in the direction that the spacecraft wanted to go. One drawback of this speculative technology is that it would require enormous amounts of energy.

    9.  Grow food

    Like everybody else, astronauts in deep space would need to eat, and finding room inside a spacecraft to bring along the vast quantities of supplies needed to sustain them on trips lasting multiple years would be a major headache. That’s why NASA scientists are looking for ways for astronauts to grow their own food while en route to other planets, without using soil or large amounts of water.

    Aeroponic crops would be grown from special seeds suspended in the air in plastic frames, instead of being planted and fertilized with chemicals. Research has shown that aeroponically grown plants actually absorb more minerals and vitamins than ones grown in the ground, making them potentially more nutritious, according to NASA. But man does not live by broccoli alone, so scientists will have to come up with a way to provide a good protein source as well. Perhaps another promising technology is test-tube meat, grown in strips from stem cells in a laboratory. A Dutch professor recently announced that he had grown small strips of muscle tissue from a pig’s stem cells, which could eventually lead to artificial, cruelty-free artificial beef, pork, chicken or lamb.

    10. Air and water

    Another thing that astronauts will need in space is supplies of both breathable air and drinkable water, and obviously they can’t haul Earth behind them to provide a continuously refreshed supply. That’s why NASA scientists are working to develop air recovery systems that will filter, extract and restore to a ship’s internal atmosphere as much oxygen as possible. By 2016, researchers expect to have the ability to recover as much as 75 percent of the oxygen from the carbon dioxide that astronauts breathe out, and by 2019, they hope to achieve 100 percent recovery, according to Space.com.

    Additionally, great strides are being made in water recycling in space. The International Space Station, for example, is now equipped with a special system that recycles both urine and waste water from washing. It rotates them in a special distillation unit that compensates for the absence of gravity and separates the actual water from waste materials, microorganisms and other contaminants, according to Water-Technology.net .
