Rather there is a phenomenon known as beer potomania. It results from intaking excess liquids without enough salts. The kidney has a maximum diluting capacity(approx 50 mOsm/L), meaning that to excrete the fluids in 2 litres of beer you would also lose 100 mOsm of salts. Beer doesn't provide enough of these salts to actually excrete the volume you ingest. This would result in fluid retention with concommitant sodium and potassium depletion. Loss of those minerals would kill you first(not sure which one would drop to the critical value first).
this sounds like a family guy quote...
Dennis Miller: I don't wanna go on a RANT here but America's foreign policy makes about as much sense as Beowolf having sex with Robert Fulton at the first Battle of Antietam. I mean when a neo-conservative defenstrates it's like Raskalnakov filibuster dioxymonohydrostinate.
Peter: What the hell does RANT mean?
