Why do a taste test of three pairs of beers to see what the differences between them are and which we like better?
1. Because sometimes what's different in the difference is no difference, and yet sometimes it's different than that.
2. Because curiosity killed the cat, but it was worth it to be able to say, "I like it like that!"
3. Because our culture programs us to revere competition and combat from an early age.
4. Because four pairs of beer would be a lot.
5. Because it'll be fun, and they're good!
