I for one love enjoying a glass or two of wine over dinner, it is relaxing and I love the feeling of the warmth that comes from my stomach. I was stumbling around the internet and came across a hilarious site devoted to drunkards. What surprised me the most however was who the focus of the article I found was upon. Andre the Giant.
You see, recently we had been learning in my Biopsych course about Andre as he was an excellent case study of acromegaly, a glandular disorder which causes some people to grow to be remarkably large. What was NOT mentioned in my Biospych class was that Andre was a massive drinker. When I say massive, I mean after reading this article I learned he had to drink 2 litres of vodka just to feel "warm inside".
For those interested, here is the article. It is quite long but picks up in the middle and becomes hilarious as it describes carriages in New York being stolen, piano covers being used to cover Andre when he was passed out, and keeping bars open until 5am by ordering drink after drink. Definitely worth a read.
So what do you guys and gals like to drink? My favourites are Rum and Coke, Sangria, Whiskey Sour's and White Russians. Post below!
