A beer a day keeps the 'beetus away?

It's hard finding politically centrist breweries, so I just drink a wide selection of craft beers and hope that it averages out to moderate.

Everything's OK if it is in moderation.

A handle of vodak a day is moderate.

You just gave me the dry heaves reading that.

I drink between 3 quarts and a gallon of day of beer.  But, then, I also sweat out about that much through exercise and exposure to high heat and humidity.

I sleep very well.  I eat what I am hungry for.

There's nothing wrong with beer consumption, as along as you counter the ill effects of alcohol.

fark your wasteful studies.

I've learned that I am a binary drinker. I either have 0, 1, or 10 drinks.

Can this be considered moderate?

As my little sister said, (as she sat at the adults table for the first time, and drank a little of the Thanksgiving wine), "Peace".

Oddly, I have the Irish disease.

One is too many, and twelve is not enough.

3-4 drinks of wine a week? screw that noise

Men who drank one to six glasses of beer a week day saw their chances of getting diabetes lowered by 21%

You mean to say the moderators are having a wild sex party in the server room while we are posting in the forum?

Did they adjust for socioeconomic status?

I'm guessing that has more correlation to both diabetes rates and well as drink preference and frequency they those two factors have to each other.

I take moderation in moderation. Does that count?

You've had heroin in moderation if you've ever had surgery or taken pain pills.  So there, you differently pigmented and lower classed person!

This....I drink beer daily, eat what I want (in moderation) & sweat it out through exercise most days.
It works for me

Moderate consumption?

Moderate consumption?  Didn't a lot of people used to die from consumption? Sounds too risky so give me a whisky.

Looked it up.  Washington D.C. drinks Wisconsin under the table any way you look at it.

Which explains a lot, really.

Drinking in moderation ... Is that like a new glass or something?

This may be true, but best to my knowledge, Washington D.C. isn't a state.

You won't get diabetes if you die of cirrhosis first.

COULD cut diabetes risk vs. WILL get you stinking drunk.  The defense rests Judge Ito
 
2017-07-28 06:01:55 PM  
Uh yeah... the first thing they tell diabetics is to stop drinking.

If you stop after that one glass, then yes.

Lots of Virginia plates at Calvert-Woodley liquors on the weekends.

So, what, cut it to only one liter of vodak a day?

What do the Fark moderators have to do with this?
