Although they were of legal drinking age and not misbehaving, the beer got them into trouble.

Did they drink it indoors? In an enclosed space outside?

Did they drink it at an event, such as sporting, musical, public holiday celebration?

"Did they get in trouble before drkinking the beer?

Does this mean that they caused the trouble while they were drinking the beer?

And does "...the actual trouble came here" mean "...the hotel staff were really pissed off when they found out what had happened later on, which was the main trouble they got into"?

Did they do something unhelpful with the ringpulls? Or with those plastic-six-ring-things that come on six-packs?

"Disposing" of the empty containers wasn't relevant - does this mean using the empty containers in any way is still not relevant?

Was the trouble they caused something that damaged hotel property? Irritated hotel guests?

And does "...the actual trouble came here" mean "...the hotel staff were really pissed off when they found out what had happened later on, which was the main trouble they got into"? yes

Did they do something unhelpful with the ringpulls? Or with those plastic-six-ring-things that come on six-packs? No to these

"Disposing" of the empty containers wasn't relevant - does this mean using the empty containers in any way is still not relevant?

Did condensation on the cans lead to damage to something?

Would the damage still have been done if the exact same cans had been filled with orange juice?
Would the damage still have been done if the exact same beer had been packaged in Coca Cola cans?

Were the cans magnetic? Were they made from steel? aluminium? tin?
Would the damage still have been done if they had been made from a different one of those materials?

Would the damage still have been done if they'd stored [any similarly sized object made from tin] in the same place?

Would the damage still have been done it they'd been made from any material other than tin?

Did the tin react in some way with the material of the place it was stored? Should I have paid more attention in Chemistry to know the properties of tin ... like... um... Sn + Enamel = Bath burns with a white flame?

I'm sure there was a reason they stopped using tin in cans and started using steel and aluminium... I just don't remember what it was! ;-)

Would the damage still have been done it they'd been made from any material other than tin?
Yes,there are materials that would have done the same damage

Did the tin react in some way with the material of the place it was stored? DOYD - but yes, there was a reaction
Should I have paid more attention in Chemistry to know the properties of tin ... like... um... Sn + Enamel = Bath burns with a white flame? No, you don't need Chemistry knowledge for this

Clarification: The cans were made of tin as in tinplate, not massive tin

Were there any relevant restrictions about using bathtubs? or sewage system?
Did someone want to use the bathtub and couldn't do so?

I know that an attempt by housemates when I was a student to clean an enamel bath with 'Vim' cleaning powder didn't do it a lot of good, and taught us to read the backs of things first to check they didn't say "don't use this on enamel, for example baths" hence the 'Sn + Enamel = Bath burns with a white flame' comment from before. Perhaps this is similar-ish...

So did the tin cans stain the bath? Did that stain ruin the bath? Or did they try to clean the bath with Vim or similar, and make it worse? ;-)

Or did the tins more than stain the bath - did they irreparably harm the surface of the bath?

I don't know what Vim is, but I declare this close enough ;-)

************* SPOILER **************************
This is an old story from my graduation year's school trip (we were mostly 18/19 at the time).
Some boys brought loads of beer cans to their room, and as is was hot summer, the guys cleverly stored the cans in the bathtub filled with cold water.
However, since cheap beer cans appear to be poorly tinned at the bottom, they started to rust there and stained the tub with nice brown rings.

The hotel management was furious, and in addition to the emberrassment in front of the teacher etc., they demanded that the tub be professionally cleaned and presented the smart guys with a large bill.

Next time they might indeed better store the beer in the toilet :-)


Thanks for playing, and congrats to Psydkik (and to Doriana for first mentioning the bathtub) =)
