    i turned one of these in for the photo competition last month and figured it was time to show the other ones off. thats an authentic warsteiner boot that holds 2 liters of my favorite beverage, beer, and or 2 liters of jack and coke depends on what mood im in. i sent these into warsteiner and they sent me a bunch of free stuff!

    i know he does it on purpose ... :p

    again: boot (German) does not mean boot (English) :albino:

    no numbers means no specific comments :p

    I like the one with the "Krug" and the limited DOF on the bottles ... that really gives a feeling of depth.

    yes they really exist, and no you cant drink it fast enough to get a bubble that blows up on you. when you set it back down, however, it creates a bubble and blows up on you :p. ive gotten my time down to 2 minutes on drinking the whole thing. it holds 7 beers so thats not too shabby haha.

    Thor, what you wanted to say is actually not "Das Boot" but Der Stiefel" :p

    It even does not do that ... the trick is only to have the heel of the boot point away from you/ upwards ... then drinking from it is very safe ;)

    I thought Das Boot was just something silly from that beerfest movie.

    I like the pictures
    and i have a little Stiefel for drinking gluehwein out of.

    :stun: b.bb...beerfest movie?

    Jürgen Prochnow would be turning in his grave. If he was dead. Wolfgang Petersen is dead - if in doubt watch 'Troy'.

    Edit: I just realised Jürgen was actually in 'beerfest'. The shame :( Time for me to get depressed about the state of cinema again.

    Hey Thor! :shock:

    So it was actually your photo that got my vote in the last competition!?!?!?!? Wow, at last I know. I had suspected it was taken by Alex_B, Warsteiner being German beer and all that, and the idea of free-beer-for-all appealed to me most, so you go my vote (and that of someone else but I don't know who that someone else was). Cool series of a cool beverage (oops, Traveler, don't come to look at what I just typed!)

    oh so when i set it down about 5 minutes ago (yes, i filled it up again) just to prove you wrong, it DIDNT splash everywhere?!

    and i know its a steifel, i just call it das boot because beerfest is my favorite movie.
