    Hey, an opening like that is irresistable. (Or so I assume ... admittedly I did not even try to resist.)

    Yep...thanks for breaking down the ounces. I tend to nurse a beer for 1 hour to allow it to filter through my system and especially if I want to drive home. If a person drinks until they become sick...this is alcohol poisoning and your body is trying to expel it. TBH, I am surprised I have a liver at all when I think back to my younger days.

    Well, now it's mine, too ... shit.
    My Mom had diabetes briefly when she was in her late 60's and a little overweight. She lost 30 pounds and the diabetes went away. My Dad is the amazing one, he will be 91 next month and his blood work is better than mine. He does not have diabetes, COPD, hypertension, nothing. He only takes 2 pills a day. He also eats whatever he wants, biscuits and gravy every morning with sausage and he doesn't watch his weight at all. He has been 6 foot, 200 pounds since I was born. He drank like a fish, smoked, chewed tobacco, WWII Vet who was exposed to radiation. He landed in Hiroshima 7 days after the bomb dropped. He had 17 years in as a coal miner as well. He is as healthy as a horse.

    The doctor said I can have one drink at every dinner table. I was on an assembly line and dinner tables would roll along all day so I was happy with that medical advice.

    It says 1 drink could be deadly. 1 drink, or so. What if you have a set amount like 5. or 8. They don't mention 8, so 8 is good, yeah?
