There is a very interesting article on Time.com that states that people who drink tend to live longer than those who don't...
A new paper in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research suggests that — for reasons that aren't entirely clear — abstaining from alcohol does actually tend to increase one's risk of dying even when you exclude former drinkers. The most shocking part? Abstainers' mortality rates are higher than those of heavy drinkers.
Of course, drunk people are more prone to falling down and injuring themselves or walking out in front of a bus...so I'm not really sure that this report is the definitive case study to rely on to decide whether having "one more drink" is the wisest choice.
Here are a few examples of some folks who obviously weren't part of the study done for the research...
This video shows that drinking and exercise don't really mix very well.
After the 39 second mark, watch as this guy sadly attempts to keep upright as he battles with the cooler doors at a little market.
This guy runs into more than trouble at the Police Station after being brought in for a DUI.
And this guy appears to be having a "little" difficulty navigating his way up a slight hill.
Oh...the drunk kids and their equilibrium-challenged hijinks.
