Praxis Training Film: Ingestion of alcohol diminishes situational awareness.

A tip of the boonie hat to Irregular MB for this one.

Great ad. :)

In seriousness though, alcohol is immediately poisonous to every tissue in the body. The much-bandied antioxidants found in a glass of red wine are also available in various fruit juices. Alcohol consumption increases the risk of esophageal cancer and heart disease for no appreciable benefit.

Really, there's no reason to drink except to catch a buzz.

Beer is the #2 taxed item in America, so either brew it at home or fund the Machine.

Works for me.

Almost everything we ingest has good and bad effects.

Your comment will fall on many deaf ears, especially mine.

It's all about moderation, and situation.

Ideological teetotalers are neurotic.

I think I knew that woman! I should have learned then and there not to drink so much, but it took me many more years.

As my old friend Neal McT used to say, "I never went to bed with an ugly woman, but I sure woke up with a few!"

As to "Anonymous said..." Brew your own, grow your own. Just don't get too far out when you're away from people you trust.

Didn't you hear about the Drake University guy who found pictures of himself on frat brother's computer? Makes a good case for fratricide if you ask me.

"Almost everything we ingest has good and bad effects."

Very true. Everything edible and potable contains toxins, and that's why we have a digestive tract, kidneys, gallbladder, and a HUGE liver. The only thing we eat that doesn't much have to be dissolved, decomposed, emulsified, metabolized, synthesized, and/or conjugated is glucose.

People who fret about their diets, and worse, pontificate about other people's diets never get invited to parties because they suck at light conversation.

I gave up worrying and learned to love single-malt Scotch the day I read that some "researcher" discovered that oxygen was bad for me.
