That one's good advice; you should be thinking about who'll get the next round in when you've still half a pint left, otherwise the glass might actually empty and you'll have to wait between drinks.

They missed one.

6. Every 21st day if your computer has the (CRC?) virus, turn your computer off for the entire day or your computer will never restart again.
