Alcohol: the universal panacea

The manifold benefits of alcohol are widely known. It serves to make you and those around you more attractive, it causes a marked increase in one's wit and charm, foreign language skills have been known to improve with alcohol consumption, and alcohol has been definitively been proven to win you more friends. But now it seems as though researchers have found yet another benefit to consuming libations (as if any more were needed!). According to this article, fermented milk (yes, alcoholic milk) is good for babies. Apparently it suppresses the human auto-immune response which results in allergic reactions in infants. Another beneficial side effect is that it makes babies sleep like...well...babies, not before they get up on top of the table and do a stunning (albeit slurred) rendition of "Moon River" though.

So feed your babies milkohol I say, but why stop there?! Red wine is good for your heart, beer for your kidneys, and whisky for your...everything. If you really love your child, you'll want to ensure their good health well into their future, no?

So let's raise a glass and say, a votre sante

Uh oh. The withdrawal symptoms have begun. You're hallucinating. Seeing bourbounesque mirages in the Libyan dunes...

Ummm, the city looks a little hazy, but I don't know about "immense sandstorm." I think it's just pollution. You know how these things are though, the entire city could be blanketed in dust by the end of the day. I fly out tomorrow though, so I hope it waits until then.

And as for bourbonesque mirages, they are not mirages my dear, I am flying out to Canada tomorrow...they're REAL...REAL I SAY!
