Beer is food in Ireland.

If beer isn't a food, how the hell have I become such a giant fatass from consuming it?

"also declares beer is alcohol, not food"

Then why do I get such pant-searing flatulence after a six pack, comrade?

Russians bear a staggering load of risk factors for disease, with 60 percent of men smoking and each citizen consuming, on average, more than four gallons of pure alcohol a year.


Russia sounds awesome.

Americans have turned into a bunch of therapy-seeking, Prozac-popping pussies.

Don't ever think you can outdrink 90 - 105 pound Russian chicks in their twenties on vodka shots.

You can't.  You will be either passed out or puking and it is sort of humiliating.

That designation was probably handy in the collective farm era. Stats could be pumped up to cover lousy production.

I'm 6'5", and back in my larger days I tipped the scales north of 400 lbs.  I made the mistake of trying to out-drink a slightly-built Russian guy at a bar in Houston once.  The first night, we did vodka, and from what my friends said, after I had passed out he kept drinking and shot a few games of pool.

Two nights later, we did tequila.  Nine shots in, he picked a fight with two of the bouncers and I never saw him again.

Oh, sure, the stagnant economy lagging behind almost every other industrialized nation, rampant crime, brutal winters, epically bad drivers, meteors exploding in the sky and the occasional pogrom - it's great!

DarkSoulNoHope: , government kills you! ...wait, that's not opposite at all!


Fark is always against the best Russia jokes, even if they're overused.

It's the grandmothers you worry about. The draw you in with food, and then drink you under the table.

If I had to live in Russia, I may find drinking myself to an early grave preferable.

It's very easy to restrict or make more expensive alcohol and tobacco, but it's only treating the symptoms not the problem. The problem is crime, both petty and organized, and trying to come out of the old Soviet era while old stalwarts like Putin keep trying to drag the country back. Not selling beer on the corner ain't gonna fix that.
