Pour yourself another one, quickly, as scientists have proven that alcohol can double life-span. Moderate levels of alcohol delivered an increase in longevity among test subjects in a recent study that Steven Clarke, UCLA professor of chemistry and biochemistry and senior author on a study published yesterday in the journal PLoS …
The research doesn't apply to you, sweets.
It's *my* worm that will live twice as long.
I, for one....
...welcome our C elegans worm overlords...
Alcohol? With some luck included!
Engage warp engines now please Scotty
Is it the alcohol or the social aspects of having drink and a good time with friends? I like a couple of drinks but only when it's with a few mates and a few laughs, then yes I can well believe it has some very good health benefits.
It doesn't sound like the worms were, "having drink and a good time with friends" in the experiment.
Worms - alcohol
Reminds me of something I have not drank in a very long time, but that drink could not have been adding days to my calendar, just happy to have survived those years.
If it comes back up green
You're doing it right.
"indeed we share half of our genes"
Oh c'mmon we share half out genes with every living creature.
looks like you lost your cadence there my man...probably too much of that ethanol stuff.
There's plenty of good British beers at 5% or stronger. Speckled Hen, Hobgoblin, Old Peculier, Tanglefoot, Bishop's Finger and Absolution are all great beers. Greene King's Abbot Ale is perfectly acceptable, although most Greene King pubs are incapable of serving a decent pint of beer. With real ale, you don't necessarily need a lot of alcohol for it to taste great though.
The bad rep that American beers have got mostly isn't their alcohol content, it's their complete lack of taste. Better American beers for sure can be OK - I liked Killian Red during my stint in Detroit. But the mass-produced stuff like Coors is all really *really* bad.
Interestingly, brewpubs are a particularly American phenomenon as a reaction to the insanely poor quality of the mass-produced stuff. They never happened in the UK. Partly perhaps it's due to Americans having more disposable income and tending to go out more. Partly though it could also be that the "average" beer in the UK is reasonably OK taste-wise. Or maybe us Brits have just got lazy...
First came across mentions of them in a game.
Didn't realise they were different to a normal American Bar.
BTW it was in St Louis.
No searching - what is the game?
Firkin pubs used to brew their beer in the back of the pub, or at least it looked that way (it may have been a gimmick).
there's a few brewpubs/brewery restaurants appearing across London. Brew Wharf up near Borough Market and The Botanist in Kew
Worked wonders for Georgie Best.
SHANDIES FOR ALL
I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out that some parasitic bacteria living on the worms, which was shortening their lifespan, was simply killed by the alcohol.
