Police said the man was then returned to the hospital, where doctors agreed to allow him to have the tall, frothy beverage of his choice.

Now that's doctoring.

Hero because he stepped out for a beer or because he, along with Subby, is a finalist for a job in the Department of Redundancy Department.

Elderly 94 year old man....

As opposed to those young 94 year old men.

/I'm betting he went for a Coors Light.

Brought to you by Subby, currently incarcerated at the Department of Redundancy Department.

Sorry subby but being 104 myself, I've never seen a youthful 94 year old.

I want to be just like him when I grow up.

It makes me so angry to see our society glorify deviants like these who participate in a past time that is purely for entertainment that results in the deaths of tens of thousands of people every year in the US alone. We don't even try to stop it because "its too hard". Wont someone think of the children?
 
2013-01-11 09:23:07 AM  
Well, I'm not going to be elderly when I'm 94. Hey. How you doing baby. Want to come up and see my transplants? Huh?
 
2013-01-11 09:25:18 AM  
Of course he had to become an instant Fark hero. At 94 he doesn't have time to become a meme.
 
2013-01-11 09:30:24 AM  
He just thought he'd go for a walk. He wasn't fooling anyone.

/not obscure

I fully intend to be a cyborg by that point.

Ignore the above...was one line off on which article it goes with.

awesome.

Having a beer is only half the experience. Ah well. :/

CSB:

When my grandfather was in the hospital about a year before he passed away his doctor wrote him a prescription for a shot of brandy to be administered three times a day. The times specified were something like noon, 3pm and 7pm...don't remember exactly. The family had to provide the "medicine" and turn it over to the nurses who administered it as prescribed. This was circa 1992. The doctor's reasoning was that Gramp didn't have enough time left for alcohol to hurt him. Gramp did wartime work at a chemical plant in Central NY back in the 40's and apparently the mercury he worked around, and sometimes in, had his number and there was nothing anyone could do about it. Doc told us to let him do anything he wanted when he was released from the hospital as he was most definitely going to die from Mercury poisoning. Booze, smokes etc. just didn't have enough time left to kill him. I always thought that was a good decision, we know he's going to die, let him do what he wants with the time he has left.

I was in the hospital for three weeks following a serious accident (Had my hand crushed at work) in December 1992. I spent Christmas and New Years there. I was allowed a bottle of champagne on New Years eve since by then I was off the antibiotics. I thought that was pretty cool.
There was also an old man down the hall whose was an alcoholic, they gave him three beers a day.

Good for him! I hope I am coherent enough and mobile enough to do that same if I reach that age. Although it will be a martini, for me.

In Germany? I didn't know they had coors in Germany; outside of the US army bases that is.
