Theoretically speaking, how would one get involved in a study of imbibing distilled spirits? For science, I mean.

Women and eunuchs live longer than -- *ahem*-- intact men, and since I rather like being a man, I agree with doglover.

I don't agree with loving dogs, though.

Then you're right.  Cats are little psychopaths that lay traps and play with live things, watch them suffer and don't eat them.  Dogs will love you and use you for treats.

I thought this was already known. Beer, which doesn't have resveratrol, has similar observed health benefits.

Could it be because trying to say "resveratrol" results in people gagging on their own tongues?

I don't know about that but it sure makes my love handles disappear as far as I can tell. And my chin looks more manly as well. I know things will go back to normal in the morning but for now I'm looking goooood.

So do killer whales (play with things and then kill them for sport). Just being random.

Now I understand why I love cats. Kindred spirits, although I do wonder if my playthings qualify as "live" or are merely homonculi.

I'll just have to assume it's something else in red wine providing heath benefits then.

I was gonna go with beer but I knew before I came in I was way too late ;-).

Fark you, science. Just for that, I'm going to have another glass of wine.

The so called "French Paradox" is no paradox to anyone who has lived there...  Yah, they drink red wine and have a high fat diet, yet still have a much lower rate of heart disease then our country... Hmmmm, you know what else they have?  Free Quality Healthcare... A But Ton of Vacation Time... A FARK YOU attitude at work because there are so many worker protections, a customer who complains about your service might just as well go suck the cobblestones off the Champs Elysees.  No... lets just leave it to the wine.  The French live longer then us... Because the French... mmm How do you zay?  Zey ar not ehZtupida.

This is why I only drink it on the weeks that it helps you live longer.

Pretty sure the scientists never said that anyways. They may have hinted at it, followed by reporters publishing very misleading headlines. Example: "Scientists find link between a chemical in wine and a slightly reduced risk of cancer", headline reads: "Uncork a bottle to unlock the key to eternal life."

Done in one, technically speaking.

And I love dogs too, especially mine, but not THAT way.


Mugato: Lucky for me I just drink cheap vodka.


I switched back to cheap rum. It isn't flat-out nasty straight at room temperature like most cheap liquors, and it mixes better.

HUMAN ethics. Every species has its own ethical standards, if they think about it.

I see animals that violate animal ethics all the time, especially dogs, but they're warped by humans so they can't help it.

Yeah, that's usually how science gets translated in the mainstream media: watered down and distorted beyond recognition.  Then, when a contradictory study comes out, it gets reported the same way, and then people roll their eyes at the scientists.
