Geoscientists went through 175 kegs of beer at the AGU meeting in San Francisco last week. Wired magazine interviewed folks on the exhibit floor during the daily 4 pm rollout of free beer to find out why geologists love beer. It ain't rocket science folks.
But I cringed listening to some of the explanations. Do you suspect a few folks must have been worrying what their bosses would think about them sucking down the suds on company time and expense?
If the truth be known, it may not be that geologists love beer, but beer lovers are more likely to become geologists.
