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 drink one litre of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than one kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. coli) - bacteria found in feces.
In other words, we are consuming one kilo of poop!
However, we do not run that risk when drinking wine and beer (or tequila, rum, whisky (or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and / or fermenting.
Water = Poop
Wine = Health
Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit.
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information.... I'm doing it as a public service!
A friend of mine (or perhaps a drinking buddy!) sent me this... I thought I'd pass it along!
