So last week's quiz question was, The Code of Hammurabi, the first written law codes, stated that any drinking establishment that was caught watering down their beer was to receive the following punishment. The correct answer is Death.
The Babylonians are credited with many of the "firsts" in western civilization, including the first set of written laws. King Hammurabi is credited with unifying the laws and having them committed to tablets. Several of the laws were regulations on beer, since water was not always a safe thing in ancient (and in some modern) times. Beer was a way to get hydration and nutrition in a safe (and fun) way.
As you may have noticed, I have a logo (yay!), thanks to Mark at http://www.tomcuttingboardcomics.com.
