I also like drinking heavily, and breaking things to failure point (only put x pounds of force on that beam to study deflection?, lets see what happens when we put over 9000 pounds of force on it! We have chemistry equipment? What if we.... add sugar and yeast to some grain mash and use fractional distillation?), also being a socially awkward penguin.
