To drink? Or not to drink?

Asked by sccrowell (3508points) April 7th, 2008 from iPhone

To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine… And those who don’t.

As Ben Franklin said; in wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria.

In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drank 1 litre of water a day, at the end of the year, we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia Coli (E. Coli) a bacteria found in feces.

In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.

However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer or (tequila, rum, whiskey, or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering,and or fermenting.

Remember: Water = poop, wine/beer = health.

Therefore, its better to drink wine, beer or any other liquor and to talk stupid than to drink water & be full of shit!

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I’m doing it as a public service…

Nice logic…

Since when did E. Coli = poop? (I do realize it does come form poop—bit different that saying it IS poop though)

Oh this is educated… You’re lacking a lot of data from that study to make such a decision.

Well did you know that an 8oz glass of water has passed through the human body atleast 8 times.

As for water, think about this, all of it is here, we just keep reusing it…It gets cleaned up and we reuse it….
So, as I’ve heard that you don’t own beer you just rent it….Which I guess is why at most arenas and stadiums the urinals and concession beer taps share the same wall…Different sides but none the less the same wall….
I’ll take the alcohol, preferably Scotch, most of that has been distilled twice, less chance for germs….

I’ve seen that before and got a laugh from it. All kidding aside, I’ll take my chances with water and preserve my liver just a little longer!!

How can something thats been filtered through 8 peoples kidneys not be pure?

As for for alcohol – the quickest easiest way for tee totalers (someone whoe does not drink at all) to increase their life expectancy is start drinking modest amounts of wine!
