Ingenious, but - are they empty or full?
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

To tap the opportunities in the Thai beer market where beer consumption is amongst the highest in Asia . . .

Empty, I would guess. Full bottles would be too heavy for some of the structures.

If they weren't empty when they were installed, they would be soon after. :tongue:

Perhaps, the Thais and Burmese do similar structures in stone and concrete and then decorate with gold leaf and semi-precious gems.
I imagine full bottles would provide excellent insulation.

No, empty bottles provide better insulation.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." -- C. S. Lewis
