Beer bath??

I was very surprised when I read something like this is being offered by a brewery in Czech Republic. So I looked it up and volla its true!! Not that I am ever going to get try it soon, but none the less I now know that you can wash away your troubles with beer. The detailed “beer bath” process is described below.

What are Real Beer Baths?

An original curative spa therapy connecting a soothing hot bath, the spring of healing mineral water IL-SANO, the unique dark Bathing Beer and rejuvenating effects of beer yeast with a mixture of hops and dehydrated curative herbs.
The aim of the baths

The aim of the baths is harmonizing functions of the organism, mental rest, recondition and relaxation. Effective repose of the body, soothing muscles, warming joints, healing complexion and hair cure. The procedure detectably improves the body immunity.


The real beer baths are taken in a rehabilitation tub and have the temperature of 34 degrees. They consist of water and mineral water IL-SANO in the proportion of 1 to1. The major bath ingredient is dark Bathing Beer which is produced in a traditional way based on the copyright original method and made by the main brewer of the family brewery Chodovar only. When entering the baths, the level is covered by characteristic beer foam of caramel colour and the area is scented by the fragrance of freshly brewed dark beer.

The client is immersed into the baths which is enriched by a batch of active beer yeast and a mixture of dehydrated crushed herbs. The agreeable temperature of the water causes mild and gradual rise of the heart activity and activation of blood circulation in all the vascular system. The bath warms the cuticle and releases skin pores through which, due to moderate sweating, unhealthy substances are scoured away from the subcutis. The mix of crushed herbs functions as purifying peeling. The beer yeast provides the skin with a wide range of vitamins B, proteins and saccharides and contributes to overall softening and regeneration of the cuticle. Carbonized bubbles contained in the mineral water IL-SANO remain on the skin, calm down the warmed up body surface and enable effective relaxation in mild sparkling baths. To increase the outcome of the bath and enhance the relaxation experience, the guests are recommended a glass of unique non-pasteurised Rock Lager including active yeast culture which positively work on all the digestive system. The length of the stay in the bath is 20 minutes.


After that, the client is reposed on a bed in the relaxation area and covered in a sheet and a fleece quilt. With dimmed light and pleasant music, the organism starts soothing. The warmed up body finishes the sweating phase, the heart activity slows down, the blood pressure slowly decreases, the muscles get released and the body energy is renewed. The purified and rejuvenated skin receives healthy and effective substances, which have remained on the cuticle and are gradually absorbed through the pores into the subcutis. The physical and mental rest enables the relaxed body and mind to release a stream of positive thoughts and energy. The time of the rest after the bath is at least 25 minutes.


As the muscles and joints are optimally warmed up after the bath, for accomplishing the real rejuvenating process we recommend a partial massage aimed at problematic body parts, or a complete massage releasing muscle tension.

Nerd, Geek or Dork Test

I just took this test and here are my results.. confirms what I already knew.

Modern, Cool Nerd
65 % Nerd, 60% Geek, 30% Dork
For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn’t use to be cool, but in the 90’s that all changed. It used
to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a
pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world
that you couldn’t quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and
geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very
least, and “geek is chic.” The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent,
knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing
computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one
you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one
up there, winning the million bucks)!

Cricket–funny crowd calls

I found this funny report on Mid-day about Mumbai crowds and chants they made during the game.

The crowd at the Wankhede for the third Test between India and England, has surely been one of the most vocal ones in recent times.

Sample a few of their comments. When Yuvraj Singh dropped yet another catch, “Ek do, ek do, Yuvraj ko phek do,” they chanted. When umpire Simon Taufell gave a decision against India, they said “Simon, go back.”

When Matthew Hoggard was bowling a good spell they came up with, “Who let the Hog out?” When Harbhajan Singh was bowling a good spell, it was “Jo bole so nihaal, sat sri akal.” And the cream of them all, was when India skipper Rahul Dravid spoke at the presentation ceremony, “We want Sourav!”, they said.

First one

I almost decided I am never going to blog again.. but I guess I just could not resist not writing anymore. So I guess this blog is back under a new name and a new avatar. Hopefully I wont give up on this one as I did on the other blog(s).
