An unaired "Saturday Night Live" sketch on STEVE JOBS' death has surfaced online. It was supposed to air on the October 15th episode . . . but it didn't make the cut, for whatever reason. Probably because it's not all that funny, but nonetheless amusing.
--The skit mocks companies like Facebook and Netflix . . . by having their CEOs compare how awesome Steve Jobs is, to how poorly they run their companies. Obviously, the "SNL" cast is impersonating those CEOs.
Check Out the Most Over-the-Top Halloween Display of 2011
Someone in Riverside, California went all Clark Griswold with their Halloween decorations this year. There's a video on YouTube called "Halloween Light Show 2011", and it's a huge production.
It starts slow. Then four jack-o-lantern faces light up on the front of the house, and sing the song "This Is Halloween" from "The Nightmare Before Christmas". (--The first face starts talking at :33.)

--But that wasn't even the best part.Â He also added the distortion, and did a crazy guitar solo.

A Homemade Rocket with an On-Board Camera Reached an Altitude of 121,000 Feet
Here's some science trivia you probably didn't know: Â The official edge of space is 62 miles up . . . or about 327,000 feet.
And the first homemade rocket to reach it was launched by a team of amateurs in 2004 . . . reaching an official height of just over 380,000 feet.
I only mention it because an amateur named Derek Deville just launched a homemade rocket from the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. Â And it didn't go nearly that high. Â But the videos of it are great.
The rocket reached 121,000 feet, while an on-board camera got footage of the whole thing. Â And even though it's not OFFICIALLY outer space . . . it sure looks like it from 121,000 feet up.
A video on YouTube shows the launch from the ground, and from the camera strapped to the rocket. Â Then it shows the parachute deploy before it falls back to Earth. Â From start to finish, the whole thing took less than 15 minutes. Below is a highlight video. For the full 16 minute video CLICK HERE

The seller was only asking 50-grand for this one. The Cage photo was going for $1 million before it was taken down.

There's a dog in Boulder, Colorado you need to check out.Â He's an eight-year-old, 93-pound coonhound named Harbor, and he's the new Guinness world record holder for LONGEST EARS on a living dog.
--Harbor's left ear stretches out to 12.25 inches, and his right ear hits 13.5 inches.Â Overall, that's an ear-span of 25.75 inches.

WTF???Â Ben & Jerry's has announced its new ice cream flavor:Â SCHWEDDY BALLS.Â It's based on an old "Saturday Night Live" skit featuring ANA GASTEYER, MOLLY SHANNON and guest host ALEC BALDWIN.

Earlier this month, 86-year-old Leroy Luetscher of Green Valley, Arizona was working in the yard. He was using a small pair of gardening shears to prune some bushes, and he dropped them. They landed on the ground, handles pointing up. When Leroy reached down to pick them up, he fell face-first. One of the handles went THROUGH HIS EYE SOCKET . . . behind his nose . . . and ended up mostly down his throat. The other side of the handle was still sticking out of his eye socket.
He was rushed to University Medical Center in Tucson. Surgeons there somehow managed to remove the shears, completely rebuild his eye area, AND save his vision. HERE'S THE PHOTO IN ALL IT'S GNARLY SPLENDOR:
--It's been about four weeks since then, and Leroy still has bruising and some minor damage . . . but he can see out of the eye.

There was a triple play at a MINOR league game between the Nashville Sounds and Omaha Storm Chasers on Saturday. And this one was crazy.
With runners on first and second, the batter hit a fly ball to center that bounced off the center fielder's glove. And the runners took off because they thought he dropped it.
But the ball hadn't hit the ground, and after it bounced off his glove, It bounced off his HEAD . . . went up in the air . . . and he CAUGHT it. Then he threw the ball back in, and they doubled-off the runners at first and second.

The Oakland Raiders have picked their new cheerleading squad for the 2011-2012 NFL season, and one of their new ladies is . . . a GRANDMA. A 37-year-old grandma, but still, a grandma. (--Hey, if any woman could represent the female Oakland Raiders fans properly, I guess it is a 37-year-old grandma.) --Her name is Susie Sanchez. She's a mother of three, a grandmother of one, and she's been dancing since she was eight. --She says it's always been her dream to be an NFL cheerleader, and she's tried out five times in the past six years . . . but always got cut. --There were 232 women at the auditions, and Susie was one of 41 women picked to be on the Raiderettes. --The Raiderettes say she's the only grandma cheerleader in the NFL. But she's not the oldest cheerleader . . . the Cincinnati Bengals have a 42-year-old named Laura Vikmanis. Here's a couple of pics of Susie:

This is amazing:Â Someone uploaded a video to YouTube that shows a tribe from New Guinea encountering white men for the first time . . . and they're absolutely terrified.Â According to the video, it was shot in 1976.
The tribe is so suspicious of them, they actually try to wipe the white off of one guy's skin.Â Then he shows them a box of matches, and they bring him to their village, where the women seem even MORE suspicious.
The best parts are when he shows them more equipment, like a spoon and a machete.Â But they're most shocked by his little handheld mirror.
The end of the video is great too, because the background music cuts out, and it shows one of the tribesmen listening to his own voice on a handheld tape recorder.Â The whole thing is 15 minutes long, but it's worth it.

--It says, quote, "Both grew up together as orphans in a home for wayward boys.Â Both overcame the odds to become huge sports stars.Â Now both are the only hope for the rugged streets they once again call home."
--Odds are, DirecTV is just planning to run mini-episodes leading up to the football season . . . if there is one.

Presenting the geekiest beachwear ever: the solar-powered swimsuit.
The Solar Bikini, designed by Andrew Schneider of Brooklyn, uses the sun to charge iPods, iPhones, and any other gadgets with a USB connector.
The suit uses conductive thread and thin photo- panels, creating a sort of chain-mail fabric that gives the bikini a medieval armor-meets-21st century look. The solar power absorbed by the panels charges any gadget that can be plugged into the suit's USB ports, sewn right into the fabric.
Schneider is in the process of creating a men's swimsuit using the same technology to chill beers.
You can even swim in the Solar Bikini, with one crucial caveatâ¦you just need to be dry before hooking up your gadgets. (You're not even looking at the swim suit, are you?)

--His owners searched for him everywhere but couldn't find him. Their house was destroyed in the storm as well. (--They asked for their names not to be released.)
--Twenty-three days later, they went back to look through the debris of their house . . . and against all odds, Mason SHOWED UP. He had two broken legs, but had managed to figure out his way home . . . and dragged himself there.
--He had surgery earlier this week to fix his legs and should be able to walk properly again in about six weeks.Â To see the video just click on this link:

A Baseball Player Tried to Make a Catch Ten Feet Short of the Wall . . . But the Ball Bounced Off His Glove and Went Over for a Home Run.
Detroit Tigers outfielder RYAN RABURN has been having defensive issues all season. But this is something special... In Tuesday's game against the Seattle Mariners, Raburn tried to make a somewhat routine catch at the warning track in left field, but the ball bounced off his glove and went over the fence for a homerun. This type of play isn't really that rare, and it happened most notably in 1993 when a ball bounced off JOSE CANSECO'S HEAD.
--But this one was different, because if Raburn hadn't touched it, the ball would have landed about ten feet short of the wall.

Imagine cleaning out a garage and finding something so amazing that it was like winning the lottery. It happened to a Kansas businessman.
Working as an auctioneer for the last 40 years, Bill Fair said he has come across some weird stuff. "A skull, body parts," he said. But Fair said even he wasn't prepared for what he found recently.
What Fair found was a classic 66 Shelby Mustang one of only 1,100 made, and sold from Carroll Shelby's personal carÂ lot. The fastback was sitting in the middle of a huge pile of junk in a storage unit. It has been there 26 years and was in near perfect condition. "In the middle of all the trash was a car," he said.
Fair didn't really know what his company had just found. A little research showed that similar carsÂ have sold for upwards of $2 million. To read more and see a video on this story, FOLLOW THIS LINK:
The baseball season may only be a few days old, but the Cleveland Indians already have a play that will undoubtedly be included on the team's 2011 highlight reel under their belt.
In the fourth inning yesterday against the Chicago White Sox, the Indians pulled off the major league's first triple play of the season when first baseman Carlos Santana, who normally plays catcher, made a diving catch of Alexi Ramirez's bunt with two Sox's players on the base paths. Santana then threw to first to double up A.J. Pierzynski. Orlando Cabrera, who received the throw at first, threw to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera to nail Carlo Quentin at second, sealing the triple play.
The Indians took the game 7-1 for their first win of the season.

If Both People In a Couple Can Answer These Three Math Questions Correctly, Odds Are You'll Be Millionaires
Â We FINALLY have a reason why you should've paid attention in math class.Â According to a new study, if both members of a couple can answer these three math questions right, the odds are you'll be millionaires by the time you're 50.
Â Â --Really.Â It's that simple.Â In the study, spouses who both answered all three of these questions right averaged a combined worth of at least $1.7 MILLION by age 50.Â Couples who both got all three wrong were worth under $200,000 by age 50.
Â Â --Here are the three questions.Â Ready to see if you've got millions of dollars in your future?
Â #1.)Â If the chance of getting a disease is 10%, how many people out of 1,000 would be expected to get the disease?
Â #2.)Â If five people all have the winning numbers in the lottery, and the prize is $2 MILLION, how much will each of them get?
Â #3.)Â Let's say you have $200 in a savings account.Â The account earns 10% interest per year.Â How much would you have in the account after two years?
Â (--The answers to the math questions are:Â 100 people . . . $400,000 each . . . and $242.)
Mobile phones and computers will soon be able to diagnose sexually transmitted diseases under innovative plans to cut the UK's rising rate of herpes, chlamydia and gonorrhoea among young people.
Doctors and technology experts are developing small devices, similar to pregnancy testing kits, that will tell someone quickly and privately if they have caught an infection through sexual contact.
People who suspect they have been infected will be able to put urine or saliva on to a computer chip about the size of a USB chip, plug it into their phone or computer and receive a diagnosis within minutes, telling them which, if any, sexually transmitted infection (STI) they have. Seven funders, including the Medical Research Council, have put Â£4m into developing the technology via a forum called the UK Clinical Research Collaboration.
Sexual health experts hope it will help reduce the growing number of STIs, which have increased for the last decade and reached a record 482,696 last year. Two-thirds of women reporting a new STI were under 25, as were more than half of men.
The self-testing devices are aimed at technology-savvy young people. Public health experts are concerned that, although most STIs occur among that age group, many are too embarrassed to visit a GP or a genito-urinary medicine clinic to get tested and therefore continue to suffer and potentially pass the disease on. Doctors hope that the ability to obtain a private, confidential diagnosis will overcome their widespread reluctance to take a test.
The developers of the rapid testing devices expect them to be sold for as little as 50p or Â£1 each in vending machines in nightclubs, pharmacies and in supermarkets, as condoms are.

The Dallas Cowboys haven't really been Super Bowl contenders in a long, long, long . . . deep breath . . . long, long, long time.Â But apparently, the fans they made when they WERE champs aren't the bandwagon jumpers we all thought.
Harris Interactive just released the results of its annual NFL poll, and for the fourth straight year, the Cowboys are the most popular team in the U.S.
Â The five most popular teams are the Dallas Cowboys, the Indianapolis Colts, the Green Bay Packers, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the New Orleans Saints.
Â As expected, everyone jumped on the New Orleans bandwagon last year, after they won the Super Bowl:Â They made the biggest jump, from the 24th most popular team in 2009, to fifth most popular in 2010.
For the second straight year . . . and the fifth time in six years . . . the Jacksonville Jaguars are the LEAST popular NFL team. So how did the Raiders and the Niners do? To see the article with all the stats, click on this link:
I found a great game for you to playÂ instead of actually working. Â It's a photo of six different women, and you have to guess how many sexual partners each one of them has had:Â None, one, five, 25, 50 . . . or 5,000.
--Yes, one of them has had 5,000 partners.Â And no, none of the women are famous. Look at the picture, make your guesses, and scroll down below the picture for the answers...no cheating!
OKAY, HERE'S THE ANSWERS...
The blonde with the blue dress has had 25 partners . . . the blonde with the red dress has had five partners . . . and the brunette in the tan dress with the red necklace has had one partner. The Asian's a virgin . . . the brunette in the blue dress on the bottom row has had 50 lucky guys . . . and the blonde hugging the guy has slept with 5,000 partners.Â Wow.
According to The Pulse of Radio, Jimmy Page's 1971 solo to LED ZEPPELIN's "Stairway To Heaven" topped the Gibson.com list of the "Top 50 Guitar Solos Of All Time." Coming in at No. 2 is Eddie Van Halen's 1978 groundbreaking instrumental "Eruption" from VAN HALEN's self-titled debut, with Jimi Hendrix's solo on his 1968 cover of BOB DYLAN's "All Along The Watchtower" rounding out the Top 3.
Hendrix made the list four times â the most of any guitarist. Eric Clapton scored three times with solos for tracks with CREAM, THE BEATLES, and DEREK & THE DOMINOES. In addition to his runner-up spot with "Eruption", Van Halen's 1982 solo on MICHAEL JACKSON's "Beat It" came in at No. 50.
Jimmy Page â whose solos to LED ZEPPELIN's "Since I've Been Loving You", "Heartbreaker" and "Whole Lotta Love" also made the list â says that after all the success LED ZEPPELIN had, the real reward has been that the music has lasted so well: "The most satisfying, the most rewarding part of it, is having been part of music like that, which has stood up to the test of time. Every musician hopes that their music will hold up. And it's wonderful."
Peter Frampton has been close friends with Page since the mid-1960s. He frequently watched ZEPPELIN record in the early '70s at London's Olympic Studios, while taking breaks from his own recordings and was consistently impressed with Jimmy Page's guitar technique: "He's a very well-rounded player. His technique on acoustic is phenomenal. And he uses various different open tunings. He tunes his guitar down and there's a special 'Jimmy Page' tuning (laughs) that he uses on a lot of the stuff."

Ronnie James Dio died of stomach cancer in May, and his Encino home has just been put on the market this week for $3.333 million. The home has five bedrooms and five bathrooms, over 5,000 square feet of living space, and was built in the style of an English manor. Usually listings like to boast about how new all the appliances are, but this one highlights antique features: "200 year old wood [floors] from France, pub bar from the Kings Arms in Chiqwell Essex, England c. 1820, & custom stained antique windows from the 18th & 19th centuries." Don't forget the antique cathedral windows in the master bedroom, circa 1790! As is befitting a rock legend, it also comes equipped with a custom music studio.
Depending on how you look at it, this scene from an Indian movie is either the greatest or most ridiculous action scene ever. Either way, it's really funny.

This is so you ladies out there can better understand us guysâ¦weâre always trying to figure you women outâ¦maybe this will help explain why us guys do the things we do, why we are such pigs most of the time. Let's say you're at a bar with the woman in your life when your eyes move inexorably toward another woman walking by.
In one-fifth of a second, before the conscious mind has had a chance to react, the male brain has rendered judgment on whether the oncoming stranger is sexually hot.
Pupils dilate, heart rate spikes, testosterone surges and the eyes assume a vacant stare â sure signs that the âman tranceâ has set in.
For genetically preprogrammed men, the offence is as involuntary and natural as breathing, says brain researcher, neuropsychiatrist and author Louann Brizendine, whose book, The Male Brain, mounts a unique defense for such male indiscretions.
Men are more visual, more driven to sexual pursuit and more predisposed to cheat than women, she writes.
The sexual pursuit area in the male brain is 2.5 times larger than the one in the female brain âconsuming him with sexual fantasies about female body parts,â she concludes.
Consider the implications.
This amounts to conclusive physiological justification for the male practice of staring at female breasts.
âIt's a reflex that's built into the brain circuits,â she said in an interview. âAt its core biological basis, it's unfair to criticize men for that initial unconscious circuitry.â So ladies, please donât get mad or upset when we glance at that rackâ¦that spectacular rackâ¦we canât help it. Itâs in our genetic code.
When we finally do look away, the experience fades quickly for men, Brizendine writes.
Man trances are fleeting moments of unconscious aesthetic appreciation that disappear from the mind as quickly as they emerge.
While our women fume for hours over our indiscretion, we've obliviously switched focus within moments to the ball game, where to go for nachos or internal debates over who would win in a fight between Batman and Spiderman.
Ladies...now you know.

A TOPLESS sunbather in ItalyÂ is being investigated by police after being accused of sensuously rubbing sunÂ tan oilÂ on herself on a public beach. Police were called to a beach south of Rome by a furious mother who said the way the âattractiveâ sunbather was rubbingÂ lotion on her body had âtroubled her sons aged 14 and 12.â The mother said she had asked the 24-year-old woman, identified only as Luisa under Italian privacy laws, to cover herself up. But the woman, still topless, refused and an argument broke out and police were called. The complaint has triggered a debate in Italy about topless bathing...what debate? Shouldn't she be topless ALL the time? Take a look...

"But you've been with a man, right?"
"Can I watch?"Â "No, really...can I watch?"

A rare Led Zeppelin concert recording was recently discovered at a car trunk sale in England, according to Classic Rockmagazine. Dubbed onto C-D, the recording captures the band at St. Matthews Baths Hall, a converted swimming pool in Ipswich, England in November 1971. No word on if Led Zep will try to purchase the recording or release it.
Alice in Chains fans might want to listen to "Your Decision" backwards. Drummer Sean Kinney says that "Bigfoot exists in that song" and that it's filled with hidden messages. But we're pretty sure singer-guitarist William DuVall is joking when explains that you can hear "Sean is dead" when it's played backwards.
Korn will playing small venues this spring on the Ballroom Blitz Tour, which kicks off May 2nd in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Only seven dates have been announced so far, but 16 more shows will be added soon.

Scott Weiland blames the wives of his former Velvet Revolver bandmates for causing his split with the supergroup. He tells Details magazine, "When Velvet Revolver first got together it was great... We had all been through the same experiences, and it felt like a gang. But everyone was a rock star. There were petty jealousies. Then the wives got involved with the business of the band, and that was the beginning of the downfall."
A mouse stealing a leopard's lunch.... Are you serious?
Seemingly unaware of the beast towering over it, the tiny rodent grabbed at scraps of meat thrown into the African Leopard's enclosure. But instead of pouncing on the tiny intruder, the 12-year-old leopard Sheena kept her distance. Â After a few minutes she tried to nudge the mouse away with her Â nose, but the determined little guy kept chewing away until he was full.
The extraordinary scene was captured by photography student Casey Gutteridge at the Santiago Rare Leopard Project in Hertfordshire , England . The 19-year-old, photographing the leopard for a course project, was astounded by the mouse's behavior. Â He said had no idea where the mouse came from. Â He just appeared after the keeper had dropped in the meat for the leopard. Taking no notice of the leopard, the mouse went straight over to the meat and started eating.
Even when the leopard bent down and sniffed him, the mouse just carried on eating like nothing had happened. Even the keeper said he'd never seen anything like it before. The mouse continued to eat the leopard's lunch and showed the leopard who was boss. We can only assume that Casey received a grade of A on his project!

Say hello to "Giant George", the world's tallest dog. The 250-pound Great Dane from Arizona is the tallest dog ever recorded, standing three feet and seven inches. From tip to tail, he's longer than seven feet!!! Can you imagine cleaning up the yard after this humongous dog?
The world's strongest five-year-old is muscling in on a new record after performing a series of astonishing 'air' press-ups.
Romanian Giuliano Stroe - who has been trained by his gymnast dad Iulian since he could walk - stunned TV viewers in his homeland by almost doubling the current world record of 12.
The body-building youngster pulled off 20 of the special press ups - where the legs never touch the floor - before stopping.
Giuliano became a worldwide sensation after videos of his strongman feats became a You Tube sensation.
Last year, he managed to get into the Guinness Book of Records after performing a jaw-dropping handstand stunt on an Italian TV show.
He performed the fastest ever 10 metre hand walk with a weighted ball between his legs in front of an astonished audience.
Dad Iulian, 33, explained: "He has been going to the gym with me ever since he was born.
"I always took him with me when I went training. But he's still only a child and if he gets tired or bored we go and play."
You must be really bored...you're actually wasting valuable company time to check this video out...enjoy!

Top 5 Reasons Jeff Keith should be the next singer for Aerosmith
1. Tesla is taking 2010 off â JK could fill in until Steven Tyler gets âback in the saddleâ
2. JK raspy, gritty vocals are frequently compared to Tylerâs
3. One of JKâs biggest influences and favorite singers ever is Steven Tyler
4. Have you heard JK sing âSeasons of Witherâ from Real 2 Reel (disc 2) or âDraw the Lineâ on the Aerosmith tribute album?Â Frigginâ Sweet!
5. Cross-exposure to Aerosmith fans has great potential
Top 5 Reasons Jeff Keith should NEVER be the next singer for Aerosmith
1. Gary Cherone will always be the fall guy for the disaster that was Van Halen version 3.0, even though I donât think it was his fault.Â Couldnât bear seeing that happen with JK.
2. Iâm afraid Aerosmith wouldnât want to give him up in 2011
3. JKâs country album would get pushed off again
4. If JK joined Aerosmith for a year, he wouldnât be available to pop up on stage at Frank Hannon Band or Animal House shows.
5. If heâs touring with Aerosmith, then heâs not touring with Tesla.Â Unless they were sharing the same bill.Â Hmmmâ¦.

Pete Townshend tellsÂ 98 RockÂ that The Who will play a "mash-up of stuff" during their performance at the Super Bowl half-time show February 7th in Miami. "A bit of 'Baba O'Riley,' a bit of 'Pinball Wizard,' a bit of the close of 'Tommy,' a bit of 'Who Are You,' and a bit of 'Won't Get Fooled Again.' It works -- it's quite a saga. A lot of the stuff that we do has that kind of celebratory vibe about it -- we've always tried to make music that allows the audience to go a bit wild if they want to. Hopefully, it will hit the spot."
Here's my condensed version of what it might sound like:

Although there still remains speculation on how Tiger got his lips cut up the other night....some say his lovely little wife did in fact take a 9 iron to his mug as a result of a domestic dispute over another woman.Â OthersÂ are saying that he did a face plant into the steering wheel or windshield when he hit a fire hydrant and then a tree ... But, NIKE has once again shown complete support for their prize athlete and have paid for reconstructive lip surgery....

A New Orleans, Louisiana, man became an internet star after he bet that the Washington Redskins would defeat the New Orleans. He told people that if he lost the bet, he would allow anyone with a gun to come to his house and fire bullets into his flat screen television.The moment the Saints defeated the Redskins, Wayne A. Spring's phone began to ring. About a dozen armed people came over to his house and destroyed his big screen in his backyard. See the spectacle here:

Designed by the Italian jewelry house Damiani, it took 15 artisans about 800 hours to craft this one-off bra with an 18-karat gold harlequin-patterned net and embellished with 2,355 colorless and cognac diamonds. This diamond-studded stunner has a 16-carat heart-shaped champagne diamond pendant dangling in the middle. The best part, however, is that Marissa Miller is wearing it!
You simply can't watch this video without wondering how long it must have taken to make it. It's an audio mix using nothing but sounds taken from Pulp Fiction. And as the description says, "What you see is what you hear." It's truly amazing.

According to data put together by the magazine Advertising Age, your choice of beer says a lot about you.
Here's what they found:
Budweiser -- Bud drinkers are sensible, grounded and practical. They also don't like authority and are 42 percent more likely to drive a truck than the average person.
Bud LightÂ -- Very different from regular Bud drinkers, people who buy Bud Light are careless, with frat boy personalities, and are 48 percent more likely than the average person to play the lottery every day.
Michelob Ultra -- Michelob Ultra drinkers think highly of themselves and can be conceited. They care what other people think about them and want to appear perfect.
Blue MoonÂ -- They are socially liberal, hate moral authorities and can also be sarcastic and snide in order to get a point across. They are also 105 percent more likely than the average person to drive hybrid cars.
Corona and Corona Light drinkers are busy and energetic people who are also extremely extroverted. Theyâre people persons who seek out the company of others whether in a group or just one-to-one.
I though Corona drinkers sought out the company of a beach and a sunset. Maybe Iâve been watching too many beer commercials. Heineken
Thereâs a slang term that could sum up Heineken drinkers: posers. These self-assured people believe they are exceptional, get low scores on modesty and high scores on self-esteem. They love their brand badges-a role the distinctive green glass bottle may play-and in fact, this group is attracted to luxury products in general. They are also energetic and dynamic and enjoy being both the center of attention and in the middle of the action.
Of course, you know the old expression â a Natty Light drinker is just a Heineken drinker whoâs been laid off. Craft Beers
This group is more likely to spend time thinking about beer rather than work. They are more open-minded than most people, seek out interesting and varied experiences and are intellectually curious. Craft-beer drinkers also skew as having a lower sense of responsibility-they donât stress about missed deadlines and tend to be happy-go-lucky about life.
It probably doesn't take a psychographic profile to discover that those people who refuse to drink beer at all don't like to loosen up very much. They are socially conservative and see many issues as black and white. Teetotalers honor tradition and authority and prefer a less-hectic social life.
People who turn down beer are 50% more likely to call themselves Republican, and are 30% more likely to never buy organic products.
