  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

A bottle of beer believed to be more than 100-years-old has been found at an ancient church in Cornwall.
The bottle, still containing some of the beer, was found at St Piran's Oratory, near Perranporth, which is believed to be among the oldest places of Christian worship in Britain.

The beer will be analysed to see what brew was used.

I'd sample it!

In the beginning there were only probabilities. The universe could only come into existence if someone observed it. It does not matter that the observers turned up several billion years later. The universe exists because we are aware of it.

I wonder which the bottle's owner worshipped more. Probably God, given the bottle was unfinished... :-)

I wonder if it will have value to it because of it's age and still sealed? Interesting to see if they put one on it.

Apologies in advance...

"One hundred year-old bottle of beer in the church,
One hundred year-old bottle of beer.
If it was discovered just one year before
There'd be a ninety-nine year-old bottle of beer in the church!

Ninety-nine year-old bottle of beer in the church.
ninety-nine year-old bottle of beer..."

...and so on

ad nauseum. :P
