    Day -4 was mostly spent prepping the basement. Tons of scraping, the glooping Drylock all over the wall, and painting in the stairwell. Ryanfodder looked like a ghost till he was done from the dust. Jackie was splattered head to toe (again). Jimmy, Esti, and Brad were in the trenches too.

    As an aside, I will no longer fear getting grey hair. It kind of fits me.

    People keep complimenting my toenail polish. Apparently I make drylock splatter look good.

    It's a board game that @UPSLynx can't beat me at.

    I am making a very scrunched up, unhappy face at my computer screen right now.

    I notice how you didn't deny it, though.

    You are already really good at telling those damn kids to get off your lawn.

    @mertesn

    So this thing happened last night at about 2:30 am. We were all in the great room contemplating going to bed... when suddenly a crash in the pub alerted us all... was someone else in the house? Did someone fall down?

    Nope. The growler exploded.

    [7:29:38 PM] Mike Comley: yup
    [7:29:46 PM] Mike Comley: dude
    [7:29:57 PM] Mike Comley: I have no clue how that place is not going to be super uncomfortable for epic
    [7:30:21 PM] Ben Shofner (cola): oh, it will be
    [7:30:26 PM] Ben Shofner (cola): but it's worth it
    [7:31:55 PM] Mike Comley: dude, epic could be held entirely on a floor of severed polynesian cocks and thumbtacks with burning hippies screaming alanis morrisette songs raining down from rat-infested overflowing septic tanks and it'd still be worth it
    [7:31:58 PM] Mike Comley: that's beside the point

    I'm not sure what your complaint is, that sounds like a rad party. Alanis Morrisette is the best.

  • As an addendum, I now want a beer after smelling the pub.

    Also, I am sad that beer ended up on the floor. It smelled delicious.

    Why did it explode?

    If it's particularly warm in the pub, thermal expansion of the beer and the pressures of carbonation could have exceeded the capacity of the growler.

    //EDIT: thinking about this on the shitter, the growler could also have been structurally compromised with microfractures and scratches. This would leave the growler particularly vulnerable to exploding under the pressure of carbonation.

    My conclusion was both things happening. I've had growlers getting as hot or worse before without similar happening.

    Another factor could be that the beer might have been of a particularly high carbonation level, thereby creating more internal pressure.

    We are on our way.

    And/or the growler was well used and developed a weak spot.
