Beer makes you rich: official

Reader wowed by miracle properties of ale

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Here's a quickie that we thought we'd share with you in the wake of yesterday's latest and highly-agreeable beer revelation. Take it away Neil:

After discovering that beer fights heart disease, I decided to 'medicate' myself the other night and found another excellent side-effect.

Having very little cash, I decided to forego the chippy and had a pint instead. With the remainder I purchased a lottery scratchcard on the off-chance I might get lucky, and won £70. Ergo, beer makes you rich.

I had steak that night. Tasty.

Well, that's official then. Not only does it make you clever, fight cancer and keep your ticker in good shape, but beer also lines your pockets with cash. Is there no end to its miracle properties? ®

For our extra-UK readers, "chippy" = fish and chip shop, a traditional late-night meeting point where people staggering home from the pub can find battered sausages to satisfy their acute drunken lust for processed meat products.
