"Root beer was invented in Pennsylvania. In the 1800s it had alcohol in it, but the coal miners wanted a version without alcohol, so they took the alcohol out of it."
-- overheard this evening.

I got a little taste of "root alcohol" last night, and had the soft stuff this afternoon.

This is exactly why I'm not a coal miner.
