Sportster Etiquette questions
 
When smashing ones beer bottle over another's head ( emptied of course ) , jumping on bar and screaming " Sportsters Rule!"...does the type of beer matter?
Say one were in Tibet for example, would an IPA or Stout be appropriate?

Does region enter in to it, culture for that matter, perhaps time of day or night... my cat is keen for the answers and i have come here to consult the book Sportster.

Actually, I believe that the tradition is that you smash the bottle on your own head, rather than another's. Not having ever participated in that particular ritual, I may be mistaken. I'm sure those with experience in said behavior will chime in to set the record straight. I hope your cat finds a satisfactory answer to his query.

Indeed BKB, thanks for clearing up the target melon.
Cat is ever more intrigued now.

Ah, finally something I have personal experience with.
It all kinda happens pretty fast.
Swig as much as you can, flavor doesn't matter since it's about to be your arse....
take your shirt off,
wrap it in one hand,
grab the bottle with the other hand,
find a chair, table, wall, pool table whatever,
and break half the bottle so you now have a sharp weapon while holding the neck.
Drunks just get pissed even more if you simply hit them with the bottle.
You're likely swinging while intoxicated also. Better to even the odds.

...or so I've been told. :shhhh

Ok good stuff.
Now if in another hemisphere from home...does one change the other hand whilst wrapping bottle and removing shirt?

Depends...
Do we have gravity in this far away place?

Earth based with Hemisherical implications.

It's bad to be alone away from home in a an unfamiliar drinking establishment.
It's been years since I've partaked but I'd keep the wrapped hand free in case the other guy had the same assumptions I did.
Hell, for all I know they're using plastic bottles by now.

Me and my base player tried to get a gig at this out of the way bar.
I knew the owner, who was not there.
This Amazon looking lady gave us the third degree while a short stout caveman looking dude sized us up.
Owner finally showed up as the crowd gathered round us.
Bad juju.

Got thrown out of another joint by the cops.
We went to the bar, ordered a drink and didn't get to finish them by the time someone broke a bottle and walked up.
I guess we weren't suppose to defend ourselves.
Bad juju.

I used to be fond of Black Russians.
I think I'd try to get to the bottom of one first if possible.

I don't think a plastic Zima would work in that case.
Cat is suggesting a glass, cool coors 16 ouncer.
