The drunk shall inherit the earth

A major study in Spain - God bless you chaps, by the way - suggests that men who drink every day reduce their risk of coronary heart disease by over a third.

 

Combine this with other studies which show that active ingredients in wine reduce cancer, and active ingredients in real ale fight bacteria and I think it's pretty clear.

 

Who's with me?

I knew it! I always feel much healthier after a nice pint.

If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

This reminds me that I have to buy Martini Dry and Stolichnaya.

Stolichnaya.

 

I must say that I really prefer Moskovskaya over Stolichnaya. I know it's their cheaper alternative, but the taste is quite unique. Stolichnaya would probably be better if you're making drinks and want as little flavour as possible though.

I've had three pints of real ale this evening and I feel great. Proper pub, plenty of chat, all smiles and warmth in the heart of growing cold and rain. Bloody tops.

As the saying goes: in small quantities remedy, in large quantities medicine and poison when there's none to have.

I think it's great that alcohol has health benefits. And I think it's funny that they would assume such terrible things about us in the article, "But these [studies] are often misinterpreted by people looking for a health reason to consume alcohol."

Unfortunately, I've never seen Moskovskaya for sale around here, so I've never tried it.

I am pleased to report that I had three beers in the pub last night, then a very fine malt whisky when I got home. I played a couple of hours of Red October and was awesome.
