    Alcohol-consumption.gif

    "The world drank the equivalent of 6.1 litres of pure alcohol per person in 2005, according to a report from the World Health Organisation published on February 11th. The biggest boozers are mostly found in Europe and in the former Soviet states. Moldovans are the most bibulous, getting through 18.2 litres each, nearly 2 litres more than the Czechs in second place."

    Would be interesting to see just US data by state. I would think given the Calif wine industry (3rd largest producer of wine in the world), Calif alcohol consumption would be high.

    Considering how low the average lifespan for a Russian man is, of course alcohol is a culprit (along with tobacco use and suicide).

    Clearly not even the craziest, American college kids can outdrink most of Europe, eh?

    actually no, thats NOT how big russia is... map projections, stretch the countries closer to the poles relative to the ones close to the equator. that;s the only way the north pole (which is a point) seems as long as an equator on the map.

    Yes, it is.
    And looking at your avatar when I'm drunk makes me want to get some white spray paint and do some graffiti on a few stop signs. Thank fuck I'm past that stage in life (in other words, been there done that). icon_lol.gif

    Now I know my proclivity for drinking is a result of my Slavic and northern European ancestry. WHEW! Takes ME off the hook!

    I never went through that stage... I'm the guy who messes with fastfood signs, though. I'll probably die of old age in the act.
    When I lived in a podunk farming town in AR, I actually walked down the street and stole the "neighborhood crime watch" sign the day after my house got broke into with no witnesses. Then I handed the sign to the chief of police (family friend) and told him to take his neighborhood crime watches and shove'em up his fucking ass. icon_lol.gif
