Well it's a damn good thing that was hundreds of years ago, then!

Haha I read that as the "middles ages" and was like, who farking cares? Life was shiat back then. Then I RTFA and now I'm concerned. Maybe I should start scrapbooking so I have the memories saved.

You will always have your friends to remind you of what you did last night.
 
2014-07-30 12:50:29 PM  
What age is middle aged?  Like 40?  So I can keep drinking as much as I do for a few more years?

At 45 I've noticed it's a lot easier to poke holes in my memory with drink than it was before. Not blackout drunk, but just forgetting details.

Heavy drinking is bad for you?

Thanks science!
 
2014-07-30 12:58:46 PM  
Heavy drinking has always led to being drunk...for me, at least.
 
2014-07-30 01:01:27 PM  
Hey guy in picture, can I have that jug when you're done with it?  Those are great for yeast starters.

...leads to titty dresses and easy romps with the barmaids. And making friends with a racially and jobwise assorted bunch. And an unstoppable need to go find a dragon to die to.

I read the headline as "Middle Ages," too. I was thinking "Well, you can't blame them for taking in the odd tankard of mead considering the awful conditions back then."

Drinking too much in middle age 'leads to memory loss'


Kind of the point

Funny, I don't remember drinking that much when I was middle aged....
 
2014-07-30 01:16:25 PM  
I'm pretty sure middle age eventually leads to memory loss anyway doesn't it?

I was kinda thinking for a lot of people, this is a bonus.
 
2014-07-30 01:20:06 PM  
What is "middle age"? What is "too much drinking"? What is "middle age"?

Good solution. Firstly you can be selective and only save the good memories. Secondly the alternative of reducing drinking during middle age does not bear thinking about.
 
2014-07-30 01:50:45 PM  
well i'm farked, anyone want to get wrecked?

Just how often is memory loss not the goal of heavy middle aged drinking?

/middle aged
//didn't check to see if "heavy drinking" is more than two drops in a row
 
2014-07-30 02:09:38 PM

Yeah but you'd have forgotten those same things if you'd been sober so it's kind of a wash.

I forgot to buy more vodka goddammitsomuch! Now THIS is getting serious!
 
2014-07-30 03:11:17 PM  
Well, at least it doesn't lead to memory loss.
 
2014-07-30 03:11:41 PM

That.

Is this actual heavy drinking, or neo-prohibitionist "heavy" drinking?
 
2014-07-30 04:34:22 PM  
Luckily I'm past middle age so doesn't matter how much I drink
 
2014-07-30 04:54:07 PM  
It did not effect my memory.
 
2014-07-30 05:03:05 PM  

Oreamnos: Is this actual heavy drinking, or neo-prohibitionist "heavy" drinking?


It's only heavy drinking once you've drank more than you weigh.

jfivealive: What age is middle aged?  Like 40?  So I can keep drinking as much as I do for a few more years?


I thought 45 was middle age. Cause I'm closing in on 40 and I don't feel middle aged.

/fark, I'm almost middle age
 
2014-07-30 09:50:39 PM  
I am SO farked. HEY, where did I put that beer? "The one in your hand?"  Oh yeah...

Mugato: I thought 45 was middle age. Cause I'm closing in on 40 and I don't feel middle aged.
/fark, I'm almost middle age


It is half of your life, hence "middle age." So if you expect to live to be about 80, then 40 is middle age.
Unless you're over 40, then middle age starts at 50 and goes to about 75.

/In the prime of, barely, hardly there, middle age.

I'm 51, and I've been drinking every day for about 8 years. My body started falling apart long before that, and my brain was never that great. And the longer you drink the higher your tolerance gets, so of course I'm drinking about twice as much each night as I was a few years ago.

Last month the dental hygienist said the periodontal pockets in my gums have somehow become half as deep since Dec. 2012, and today the ophthalmologist told me my left eye is significantly less near-sighted than four years ago (in kind of a "How did you not notice that?" kind of way). So maybe heavy drinking is good for me. Maybe if I drink enough my eyesight will be 20/20 and my three missing teeth will grow back. Or maybe my penis will get longer, which is even better.

But then I forgot what I was going to say when I first came to this thread. That could be a good thing. Maybe enough heavy drinking will make more forget I was ever a half-blind snaggle-toothed middle-aged drunkard.
