    Thats because you're a pirate...

    Besides, some times you have to sacrifice short term memory loss for long term memory gain.

    That study, while highly interesting, doesn't exactly explain why drinking excessive alcohol makes you fat. Large amounts of empty calories, decreased protein synthesis, and decreased testosterone secretion are also contributing reasons in addition to increased insulin secretion.

    As a side note, from personal experience, I've seen healthy, fit, young adults with no history of diabetes self-induce some serious hypoglycemia through binge drinking. Rare, but it does happen.

    I can drink to that! Not only does alcohol do all the stuff mike martial is talkin aboot but most drunk people like to hit up fast food after coming home from the bar and since Mickey D's is open 24 hours a day in some areas drunken fatties have their cake and eat it too... literally.

    Is there anything wrong with the "reefer" if one can control the munchies and vaporizes rather than smokes (or cooks with it by infusing it into, say, coconut oil)?

    Reefer is said to drop test levels, havent seen a study so cant really give any references. But smoking pot all day and eating a vegetarian diet full of soy while in puberty is a great way to get manboobs and never having to use steroids. I know.

    What makes everyone so excited about alcohol? I don't drink and I don't see a reason why people are so obsessed with it.
