Lots of Russian immigrants where I'm at.  I once had a Russian dude tell that the Soviets actually encouraged Soviet men to drink and smoke.  According to my Russian friend, most heavy drinkers and smokers could remain on the job, and be productive, into their mid 50s, at which point they would die, and the government didn't have to pay them a pension.

ToastTheRabbit: 3.... 2 liter bottles? O_o


Yeah, that's a pretty important question, I had the same one myself.  So I signed up with my junk email address to find out:

Total consumption (frequency times amount, with beer taken as 0·125 and wine as 0·25 times vodka in strength) was described in units of half-litre bottles of vodka per week
