Very funny. I often discourse on the nutritional value of beer and its importance to the early urban diet (it's a fun icebreaker at parties...), but I never saw it in quite this way.

Excellent - my husband will enjoy discussing THIS theology. He will be familiar with the Gilgamesh story because of that one Star Trek: Next Generation episode.

Well this explains why many consider Britan to be the most civilized nation on earth ... and I, for one, agree ... as far as the beer is concerned.

"Blessed are Thou, O God, King of the Universe. For thou givest us the fruit of the vine to make our hearts glad."

Of course me settled down so that they could cultivate the grain that provided them beer. But women still had a hand in civilizing them - see the role of the prostitute above!

As it was in ancient Summeria, so it is today. Men start bathing and dressing and working to impress the women they are interested in.

Beer, not women, is why men decided to reject the nomadic life.

But don't most (straight) men view The Good Life as one in the right hand, and the other in the left? ;-) (Of course, a few lesbians might say the same! I resemble this statement *g*)
