Then why does my liver feel like it's on fire?
 
2001-08-17 08:46:54 AM  
Usually when I have higher alcohol consumption, I feel like shiat the next day...Is that what health feels like?

Well i guess health must actually feel like a football that has been surgically implanted where my liver used to be...and in the morning when you realize the invisible monkey has gotten you again (Invisible Monkey=he steals your money and craps in your mouth)

Sounds like a roommate I used to have.

Woo-hooo! With my combo of wine & weed I should live well into the 100's!

Shhhhhhhhhh, I'm drinking. And doing jumping jacks.

Clutch: just like those Canadian Eskimos.

This has to really piss off the Mormons.

now that I think about it, the picture of health should be something like a guy in some jogging pants and ratty white tee-shirt. Heavy blue/green bags under each eye, hair sticky straight up on one side like a yak liked the side of his head during the night. Breath that could stop a charging rhino at forty paces, and the uncanny ability to reguritate everything that comes incontact with his digestive system. Not to mention the odor....now that health!

I know sometimes nothing makes me feel healthier than a nice big beer. What a minute, isn't that called having a problem????
 
2001-08-17 09:44:17 AM  
Hey all you Portland OR Farkers, we should try to organize a beer swilling get together. For our health, of course.
 
2001-08-17 09:51:30 AM  
We're just used to the hangovers. Anytime we don't have one, we feel healthy as hell!
 
2001-08-17 09:57:19 AM  
Kind of explains why Ford Cut 10,000 jobs today.

You people get hangovers? I get it, you're letting yourselves sober up. First rule of being a successful alcoholic, never stop drinking.

(actually, if you drink a high quality vodka with little or no low alcohol content, you should not get a hangover, at least if you don't mix vodka and beer, which gets even me.)

Hangovers cure cancer

I hate bad science. They go and simply ask some people if they felt good. How subjective can you get?
 
2001-08-17 10:28:37 AM  
Rebbic: I defenetly would have to agree there, they might as well have said "Drunk people can fly" or "Drunk people have bigger penises when they drink"

"There's lies, damn lies, and statistics" - MArk Twain

This article cracked me up because it's typical of how statistics are misused/misuderstood.

"The results showed that people who drank alcohol, including beer and spirits, were less likely to report ill health than people who abstained altogether. And overall, the higher the consumption of total alcohol, the lower levels of subjective ill health." Now, does this mean that alcohol consumption improves your health, or does it mean that some people, as a result of consideration for their health, both drink less alcohol AND are more likely to be aware of their health problems? Typical reversed cause-and-effect. At least they said "subjective" ill health.

"Wine drinkers had less subjective ill health than non-wine drinkers, but so did people who preferred other types of alcohol." Huh? Winos had less ill health than non-winos, and so did non-winos. All-righty then.

I'll drink to that.

"Higher total alcohol consumption associated with better health."

YEAH! Pass me a beer. Better make it a keg. I am trying to stay healthy these days.

I thought it was "Lies, damn lies, and political promises."
Oh well.

Fusillade762: Should we start at a McMenamins, or just go straight to the Horse Brass?

I agree with you about the stats thing Kgf, this is definitely bad science, but as it's my very boobiesed comment on fark I don't care!

Woo hoo!

Bah, the Onion already revealed this a long time ago with this article: Report: Aspirin Taken Daily With Fifth of Bourbon Greatly Reduces Awareness Of Heart Attacks

Glenlivid- Wow! That takes me back! I used to live in PDX and stink up the Horse Brass all the time! Chuck some darts for me!

 
2001-08-17 09:21:51 PM  
heh. You drink too much and you turn out like Mickey Mantle. Not exactly what I call 'good health'
 
2001-08-18 04:41:18 AM  
i can definatly back this article up.. my 3 roomates and i floated a keg last nite.. and i feel great. of course this is after 3 hella shiats, some sweet waffle house, a pack of camel lights, and 15 hours of sleep.

Why must you always make disparaging comments about Mormons? We really don't appreciate it!


Nephi still loves you, though.
