And eight drinks can help you fight gravity!  Now watch me jump off this balcony.

I'm on my first.  But it's 8.5% ABV.  Does that count as two?

I saw a documentary about that school.  It starred Jackie Chan and Siu Tin Yuen.

Based on past injuries, I think I was there. Well, in body, my mind was anesthetized at the time.

You'll never know that you've got Alzheimer's when you're blacking out every night.
 
2018-02-05 10:22:34 PM  
These studies should always be taken with a grain of salt, there are so many different factors including genetics. I mean, my grandfather didn't have Alzheimer's but my grandmother did. They drank the same amount of wine, ate the same food. Alzheimer's doesn't discriminate by nationality either. So wine helps "fight" Alzheimer's, does that mean it staves off onset by a few months?

They found that mice who had the equivalent of 2.5 drinks a day could clear out brain waste more efficiently than mice who were exposed to no alcohol at all.
It's important not to overdo it, though: Rodents exposed to high levels of alcohol fared less well, with inflammation, cognitive impairment and impeded motor skills.


Anyone else amused by this? I'm picturing a bunch of mice in a miniature bar with mini wine glasses.

This reminds me of a study that suggested two drinks a day can help you fight Alzheimer's.

There's two drinks a day and Trump two drinks, which are more like three.

Wasn't that movie about Pinot Noir? The plastic-tasting, watery little brother of Merlot?

/I like Australian Shiraz.
//NZ apparently produces acclaimed Pinot, but apparently our Chardonnay's are good as well so that's hard to take seriously
///Chardonnay tastes like urine

Personally, I am a huge fan of German Rieslings.  The merlot was half full, and I all the way emptied it.

"taxidermy mouse drinking" is the GIS I didn't realize I needed. And now that I realize you posted a squirrel... here we go again.

If all of the people around you have a problem, maybe it is time to focus on the common element.

You can always experiment with cocktails. I had a rather strong Manhattan variation tonight, that I took in a citrus direction. Unfortunately/fortunately (why not both?), I don't like to drink every day. Based on this article, maybe I should change that policy. Then again, the booze lasts longer if I don't hit it all the time. Decisions, decisions.

* 2 oz. rye whiskey - Jack Daniel's rye (90 proof) is my current bottle, but Rittenhouse 100 proof is also good
* 1 oz. red vermouth
* 1/2 oz. Campari
* 1/2 oz. orange curacao (the real stuff)
* a couple dashes orange bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a glass, garnish with a cherry, enjoy. (cherry because I didn't have an orange handy)

/was pleasantly surprised by JD rye - reasonable price, good-tasting, it's 90 proof instead of 80, and it isn't "me too" MGP juice hiding behind a bullshiat story
//MGP rye is plenty good - just don't try to tell me it's based on a Prohibition-era bootleg recipe (*cough* Templeton *cough*)

I went straight for the squirrels. Having been through a few Wisconsin antique malls, I knew it was target-rich environment.

There were a lot of great pictures in both searches but I think you posted the best. I'm still laughing at his/her little tattoos.
