Low alcohol consumption: you call that living?

Donald

I have exactly zero interest in being 85.

Matter of fact, 75 don't sound so great either.

Porchlight

I am shocked at the non-consequentiality of alcohol. Maybe there is a survivor bias effect at work - perhaps a lot of truly heavy alcohol abusers managed to kill themselves before reaching an age suitable for the study.

Or maybe alcohol (when not abused) just isn't that bad for you.

Porchlight

DoT beat me to it.

centralcal

Hear! Hear! I completely agree with DoT.

boatbuilder

Numerous studies have demonstrated that moderate and even relatively high regular consumers of alcohol are generally healthier and live longer. There was a British National Health Service study involving something like 90,000 subjects over 30 years which provided some very strong data, if I recall correctly. I may be biased, OK I am biased, but "Stay thirsty, my friends."

Threadkiller

Alcohol is a glass I never see as half-full or half-empty.

Mostly filled, then emptied...

Porchlight

When do we get to TCFAB!?

The sun is over the yardarm somewhere.

Since I do not smoke but I do eat fruit, I just arranged the chart to see how much I can drink and how little I can exercise.

My conclusion is that so long as I get up to walk to the bar to mix my next drink, all is good...

Whew.

Porchlight

And Obama is in my town for TWO DAYS.

If that doesn't call for drinking, I don't know what does.

Ignatz Ratzkiwaski

--Low alcohol consumption: you call that living?--

Well, kinda; and I even remember most of it, although a few parts I'd rather forget.
Hmmmm....

Your comment re non-abuse reminded me of the song in the link below, Porchlight.

Mica chairs the House Oversight subcommittee on government operations. The subcommittee is holding a hearing on improper payments Wednesday afternoon.

I haven't found the live feed for the hearing.

Huh. Biological risk. NOT lifestyle risk.

Ignatz Ratzkiwaski

They improperly paid C Span not to broadcast it.

Captain Hate

As an alumnus of the University of Maryland, I'd like to apologize for Steny Hoyer, to whom the regents obviously gave a Participation Trophy of a diploma just to be rid of his noxious presence. They didn't consult me on the wisdom of that course of action.

Stephanie

For TK:

Apparently the real reason Obama refuses to get near the border is that he was told they'd ask to see his U.S. passport if he accidentally stepped out of the country.

Old Lurker

Steph 2:18, if our two boys start up again on that subject, I will blame you.

Nice one, Lyle.

BRZEZINSKI: There's renewed talk of the president's impeachment  . . . So I want to highlight something. I'm not laughing. This scares me actually. It's disturbing. I'm sorry. I'm not trying to be -- that whole sound bite that we just played and the impact I know it has really scares me.

Why is she scared over something that seemingly only polls well with the lunatics that frequent Drudge?

Odd..

Rush Limbaugh Audio: California Couple Tells Rush Limbaugh They Were Asked to House Immigrant Children

http://commoncts.blogspot.com/2014/07/audio-california-couple-tells-rush.html

Old Lurker

restraint, TK, good job

Stephanie

Hey! I just added a joke. NO policy. NO controversy. :)

BTW y'all do know that Ted Cruz tweeted out the mapquest directions to the border to Pres BearPoop. With alternative routes from Austin and Dallas.

Be still my heart!

Extraneus

I imagine there is quite a bit of overlap in some of these categories, and that these numbers are all just sub-group averages.

For example, say a person smoked cigarettes until age 40, but then quit and switched to smoking a single cigar at night until age 75. Smoker? Yes. Same as if he'd continued on a 2-pack-a-day cigarette habit for the previous 35 years?

Same with fruit, I'd imagine. Is it only life-long fruit consumers who get the full 6%?

What are the error bars on these numbers, anyway? That's a lot of categories for a 17,000 person sample.

Threadkiller

Steve, what do you make of the 600 FEMA camps the couple discussed?

RUSH:  -- the border, that's what you just said.  Back to you, Ann.  What is -- I've never heard this term, either -- what is a FEMA camp?

ANN:  It's federal emergency -- what's the E stand for?

EDDIE:  Rush knows what FEMA is.

RUSH:  I know what FEMA is, but what is a FEMA camp?

EDDIE:  Well, it's a FEMA facility, they've been established throughout the United States --

ANN:  There's like 600 of them, at least.

There are reports that LeBron will be returning to Cleveland. The fans are masochists if they take him back after that 2011 in your face Miami coming out party.

Not yet - October. The lucky son of a gun gets to skip summer.

Cap'n, the bats will probably flock to him, if you know what I mean.

I hope BOzo is consistent and threatens to buy a house in Austin, as he's done everywhere else he's spent more than 24 hrs. the last 6 mos..

Danube on iPad

"Why is she scared over something that seemingly only polls well with the lunatics that frequent Drudge?"

I would bet my house that over half the Drudge respondents think "impeached" means "removed from office."

And she's not scared that he will be impeached. She's scared about the number of stupid people.

Porchlight

Bite your tongue, Stephanie!

But seriously, how could he abide having Ted Cruz as his senator?

Ignatz Ratzkiwaski

Rambling, witless moron tells us what it was like to be poor and drive a Mercedes to pick up her food stamps.
All she knows for sure is Pres Barry saved her.

--The fans are masochists if they take him back after that 2011 in your face Miami coming out party.--

Battered wife syndrome.

Porchlight

And she's not scared that he will be impeached. She's scared about the number of stupid people.

Mika? She's a moron. She's "scared" because she thinks Sarah Palin and people who like Sarah Palin are "scary."

The list of people Mika finds "scary" is pretty much the list of everyone JOM commenters have ever voted for, and would also include Tom Maguire and all JOM commenters, if she knew we existed.

Please don't give her credit just to score points off TK.

She's scared about the number of stupid people.

She possesses such self awareness?

From Ig's link:

Poverty is a circumstance, not a value judgment. I still have to remind myself sometimes that I was my harshest critic. That the judgment of the disadvantaged comes not just from conservative politicians and Internet trolls. It came from me, even as I was living it.

We still have that Mercedes.

Good for you, sister! Stick that in the eyes of those icky conservatives.

Sorry, OL.

Let me rephrase:

Are you suggesting that half the respondents to Drudge's poll are not part of the party of stupid and the other half are?

Danube on iPad

"She's a moron. She's 'scared' because she thinks Sarah Palin and people who like Sarah Palin are 'scary..'"

Agree with all of that. My point is simply that she's not scared that Obama will be impeached. I should have said "crazy" instead of stupid, because Mica thinks they're crazy.

Threadkiller

YES 72.2% (137,924 votes)
NO 12.98% (24,803 votes)
NOT NOW 14.82% (28,308 votes)

Now, how to we cut the tally in half?

Think hard before giving up everything to live longer. My mother was quite athletic--a championship platform diver and great swimmer-- and ate modestly, drank very little and didn't smoke. She's now 95 with bad knees and back, glaucoma and failing short term memory.Most of her friends and family--except for her children--have died. Do you really want to live much beyond your capacity to manage on your own?

"Are you suggesting that half the respondents to Drudge's poll are not part of the party of stupid and the other half are?"

No.

Porchlight

I should have said "crazy" instead of stupid, because Mica thinks they're crazy.

Well, I guess I'm scared about the number of crazy people, too, only Mika and I don't agree about who is crazy.

So let's put it to the question. Who is crazier? Those who think Obama deserves to impeached or those like Mika who think he's doing a bang-up awesome job except when he messes up slightly on optics and gives his opponents ammunition?

What is scarier? That Obama will continue to get away with everything he's done and plans to do to the country, or that some people might try to stop him using the only remedy provided to us in the Constitution?

NK(withnewsoftware)

Obummer the incompetent-- the legacy media have begun the inevitable meme that 'Progressivism' isn't the problem it's 'Barry of the Incompetent'. Those of us who lived in NYC in the Dinkins era ('90-'93) saw this when NY Mag called NYC ungovernable, and the NYT called 2000+ murders and and children sleeping in bathtubs to avoid stray bullets, were proof of social disintegration. They'll never abandon the Prog ship, they'll just blame the incompetent CO -- Barry goes under the Media bus.

Relax, it doesn't matter how we define who is "crazy" as long as we take comfort that they are included in Jindal's 100%.

Danube on iPad

"Those who think Obama deserves to impeached or those like Mika who think he's doing a bang-up awesome job"

The latter. But Mica thinks it's the former, which is why she said what she said.

For my part, I think that Obama should be impeached, convicted and removed from office. But since I know that steps two and three cannot occur, I think that step one by itself is a very bad idea. Very, very bad.

My mother was quite athletic--a championship platform diver and great swimmer-- and ate modestly, drank very little and didn't smoke. She's now 95 with bad knees and back, glaucoma and failing short term memory.

Yet, every morning like clockwork, she climbs up to the 3 meter board and does a 1 1/2 gainer:)

Clarice, mine was the same way. All-American basketball and could still touch her toes without bending her knees at 87. But smoked like the proverbial chimney (PM's unfiltered) and drank 2 martinis every night even in the nursing home. [She was allowed to have her own bar:] Anuerysm. Not lung cancer or liver.

I could hardly skim that "I was a poor, white girl for a while" article linked by Iggy. New job, newly pregnant, newly engaged, new house... every successive life decision based on some weird unquestioned assumption that financially everything would always be good enough, always trend bigger/better. That is not, in fact, what it's like to be poor. That's what it's like to go through a period of no money.

She was judgmental before, and she's judgmental and full of herself sanctimonious after. When one is ignorant of having started off wrong, continuing to be wrong is to be expected. Just makes me mad.
