News on Booze

-Drunks Much More Likely to Survive Trauma

BOSTON—Trauma victims who were drunk at the time of their injury have higher survival rates than their sober counterparts, says a study in the journal American Surgeon.

A study of nearly 8,000 trauma patients found that 7% of the sober died of their injuries, while drunks croaked only 1% percent of the time. Trauma patients who came in to the hospital drunk were discharged sooner as well.

Previous studies on animals found that alcohol helps prevent nerve damage and the new study suggests that alcohol might have a place in treating traumatic injuries.

-Boozers Brighter

LONDON—A UK study reports that the more intelligent children are the more alcohol they’re likely to drink as adults. The exhaustive National Child Development Study monitored the test subjects from their childhoods to their 40s, and found that children scoring in the top “very bright” category grew up to drink almost twice as much as their “very dull” counterparts. Children of average intelligence generally grew up to drink average amounts of alcohol during their average lives.

Men Caught Trying to Sell $500,000 of Stolen Wine in a Parking Lot

-LOS ANGELES—Acting on a tip, detectives observed a fellow trying to sell bottles of 2007 Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon in a parking lot, then trailed him and another man to a nearby self-storage unit, said police Capt. Steven Finkelstein.

There the detectives arrested the two men and discovered an estimated 1,000 cases of wine with what police said was a retail price of $500,000. Authorities said the wine was last seen on board a tractor-trailer that was stolen in Ontario.

Theft of wine cargo is fairly common, police said, since the bottles are relatively easy to sell and difficult to track.

“Everybody likes wine,” Finkelstein noted.


-237-year Old Bottle of Non-Stolen Wine Goes for $77,000

PARIS—A 1774 bottle of Vin jaune (yellow wine) was auctioned for $77,000 in France.

The bottle of wine, brewed from grapes during Louis XVI’s reign, hit the record price at a wine festival in Arbois, France.

Pierre Chevrier, the Swiss gentleman who won the bid, said he regarded the price reasonable.

“My passion is to open bottles and I am delighted to have bought this bottle of yellow wine, which I will drink,” he said.

-World’s Oldest Winery Found

ARMENIA—A UCLA-led team has discovered a 6,000-year-old winery in an Armenian cave. The recent dig unearthed everything necessary to make wine, including a grape press, fermentation vats, storage jars and wine-soaked pottery shards.

The winery is at least 1,000 years older than any similar facility previously known, and was found in the same cave where researchers in June announced the discovery of the world’s oldest leather shoe.

-Drunks More Likely to Get Ripped

BOSTON—The more people drink, the more they exercise, reports a large-scale survey published in The American Journal of Health.

“Heavy drinkers exercise about 10 more minutes per week than current moderate drinkers and about 20 more minutes per week than current abstainers,” the authors of the study said. Furthermore, “an extra episode of binge drinking increases the number of minutes of total and vigorous physical activity per week for both women and men.”

The authors admitted they were confounded by their own report, declaring the survey results did not “follow expected patterns.”

-"This Beer Is Totally Gay"

MEXICO CITY—A Mexican microbrewery has introduced what it says is the world’s first two beers specifically made for the homosexual community.

The pair, called Salamandra and Purple Hand Beer, have a slight honey flavour and will be initially marketed to gay drinkers in Mexico, Colombia and Japan.

A Minerva Brewery spokesman said that the “artisan honey-ales” would appeal to a segment of the beer-drinking community that has felt disappointed by the failure of larger breweries in releasing gay beers.
The spokesman added that the label on the bottles is designed to be peeled off and worn as a symbol of gay or lesbian pride and/or an advertisement for the brewery. The brewery is also planning to release a strawberry-flavored variant.

Web site GayAgenda.com announced that it wasn’t certain if the gay community was being insulted or honored.

No stranger to trying to cash in on controversy, in 2007 the brewery released Malverde pilsner, honoring Jesus Malverde, the patron “saint” of narcotics traffickers.

Re: News on Booze

They are better able to handle trauma because it's probably being drunk that led to the trauma...

That's been my experience. The only times I've been seriously injured since I started drinking was when I was drunk. Without fail.

Re: News on Booze

I'm sure the sober people say "OH SHIT !" and brace themselves causing resistance. Ultimately snapin shit.

Drunk minds just say "What the fuck?" about 30 seconds too late and they bounce.
